Book Synopsis for Thicker Than Blood (Vol.1)
Veteran police officer, Gerald Lamar Jr., is a man of strong moral conviction, who seems to have the perfect life: a gorgeous wife, two wonderful, intelligent, college age children and a seasoned career on the police force. His righteousness takes a hard blow and his American dream becomes a nightmare, however, when his brother, Ramon “Rah-Money” Lamar is brutally murdered. Gerald is forced to remove his rose colored glasses and gets sucker punched by a triple dose of betrayal.
Handsome playboy, Patrick “Tip” Collier, is known as a sharp dresser with a sharp tongue. He is the city’s most notorious private investigator, and also who Gerald considers his worst enemy. Tip gets information dropped in his lap that puts him smack dab in the middle of the investigation of Rah-Money’s murder.
When these two men team up, no stone is left unturned, and Gerald discovers that throughout his entire life, he has trusted people who were one thing to his face and another behind his back. His immediate family has kept him completely in the dark. Investigation into this crime leads him into the light.
As a truck load of past deceits are uncovered, Gerald and Tip unveil the darkest Lamar family secret of all. In the end they’re both faced with one crucial question: If blood is thicker than water, is true love thicker than blood?
Thicker Than Blood is a murder mystery novel that reveals how generations of lies and secret sin can cause a family devastating and irrevocable damage.

Welcome to The Authors’ Corner. This week’s featured author is Alicia Hill Jones of The Sister Scribes.

ahj2015

 
Imagine giving birth to something that has developed inside you for over 20 years. It sounds painful! Most women would throw in the sweaty, tearful towel. Alicia did—countless times.

The combination of school, work, family, and fear of rejection aged her dream to become a published author, but it never died. Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Alicia discovered her love for creative writing at the age of 12. She graduated from George Wythe High School and was accepted into Virginia Commonwealth University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. In the fall of 2005, she established Destiny 11 Publications, a self-publishing company to publish her first novel, Blessings of Purpose. Her titles that followed are When Two Become One and Divine Purpose. 

Alicia resides in Richmond with her husband and their daughters.

                                Divine Purpose Book Cover small

Book Synopsis 

Crystal Miller lived a first-class, celebrity lifestyle in California with her child’s wealthy father. When expensive make up and designer clothes weren’t enough to cover the damage of his abuse, she flees to her hometown in Virginia and settles into a mediocre job.

     On the day before Crystal’s 30th birthday she is laid off from work and forced to start over with no direction. She shuns using her natural gift of interior design to start a business because dreams don’t pay the bills. Desperation pushes her forward, but she is discouraged by a series of obstacles, rejection, and betrayal. Why is her life in this dark place again?

    With a heavy, mangled heart Crystal stumbles onto a spiritual path where her faith is revived through unexpected events and people. Will her faith be strong enough to pursue God’s purpose for her life or will fear keep her bound to losses from the past?

Soul_Name_Front_Only-1

  Book Synopsis 

Soul Name is a cultural picture book and audio CD about an eight-year old Ghanaian girl, Ekua, who shares with the reader the importance of the naming and welcoming ceremony for her brother Kofi.

“Cultural, Colorful, Rhythmic. These words fail to fully define Naana Kyereboah’s book, Soul Name. However, they are a good start. Reading her book is like sitting on the floor, listening to a beloved relative tell a story. In this case, the relative is eight-year old narrator, Ekua, and her story involves the naming ceremony for children in Ghana’s Fante tribe. Her powerful words, the vivid illustrations and the attached CD combine to make Soul Name a multi-sensory experience” (Richmond’s Book Examiner, K. Robinson) Naana offers An African Touch presentations to schools and organizations.

For more information on Naana and to purchase your copy of Soul Name visit her website at . http://www.nabinava.wordpress.com. To schedule An African Touch presentation at your school or organization email Naana at nabinarva@gmail.com

Rayne Armstrong was blissfully married to her childhood sweetheart Rashard and she thought she had it all- perfect career, perfect looks, perfect home, and the perfect husband. So when her marriage came crumbling down due to Rashard’s infidelity, she felt her world was turned upside down. Rayne begins to feel her life spiraling out of control, and she is grateful her family and best friend are there to help her pick up the pieces.

Unexpectedly, she finds herself becoming emotionally involved but there is just one problem- he is married.

Rayne finds herself in a vicious love triangle as she struggles with her burning desire for Bryce and still being in love with Rashard. Then there is the wildcard Troy, whom is determined to win her heart which throws her into a whirlwind of pleasure and anguish. All hell breaks loose when secrets are unveiled, and Rayne emotions began to collide. Torn between the world of love and temptation, will Rayne finally realize which man is truly the one…?
