Romantic Friday Writers: Stuck In The Middle


Hello everyone! I'm glad to be back with Romantic Friday Writers. This week’s challenge is to write 400 words of prose or poetry or excerpt to the theme Stuck In The Middle.

I'm taking a break from a hectic schedule. All I can say is that I'm looking forward to some downtime this summer.

So I've chosen a snippet from An Engagement Challenge. You can read the blurb here.

In this scene, the heroine Ijay discovers that her fiancĂ© Vincent and her ex Paul know each other. Guess who’s stuck in the middle. LOL. 

Yes, I know it's not supposed to be about love triangles. But I hope you enjoy reading it anyway.

Cover Reveal: His Princess (Men of Valor, #3)



Happy Monday, friends. What a great start to the week. Please join me in my excitement as I share the cover of His Princess, the third book in the Men of Valor historical romance series set in West Africa. The ebook is out July 20, 2012 published by Breathless Press.

As always, I love what my cover artist has done here. While the cover for His Treasure is still my favourite, this one comes a very close second. I just love it. Don’t you?

My Angel - A Short Story

Hello, everyone. Today is Short Story Day. Check out Short Story Day Africa whose aim is to highlight all the outstanding short stories Africa has to offer. Visit their website to read great short stories written by Africans.

I thought I'd treat you guys with a story I started writing a while back. I wrote it originally as a piece of flash fiction but I started extending it. So I want to do an experiment with you guys. I'll write and share more if you let me know you want to read more. So please leave a comment and let me know if you want me to continue writing this story.

It's currently titled My Angel. I hope you like it.

Cover Reveal & Autographed Paperback Gift


My hands are shaking. I’m excited. I just signed off the book cover for the paperback edition for An Engagement Challenge. Next stop will be physical proof copies of the printed paperback. Yay! My first ever book in paperback. I really can’t wait to hold them in my hands. They arrive soon so I’ll be hounding the postman for the next few days.



To liven up my current blog tour, I want to offer readers the chance to be one of the first people to get their hands on an autographed ARC paperback of An Engagement Challenge. I'll also personalise the autograph (within limits) if you wish to have specific written words on it.

Romantic Friday Writers - Yes, No, Oh Alright Then


Hello readers, it’s a new month. Gosh, I can’t believe it’s June already. The year is flying by. Are you on track with your annual goals? Me, I’ve met some of my half-year goals but off on a couple. But I’ve got a month to work through, so here’s hoping. There's still so much to look forward to this year.

So welcome back to Romantic Friday Writers. This week’s challenge is to write 400 words of prose or poetry for the theme Yes, no, oh alright then.

As it’s all about indecision, I’ve chosen a snippet from His Strength, book 2 of my Men of Valor historical romance series. In this excerpt Nneka, the heroine, is caught between what her mind wants and what her body obviously desires. The hero, Ikem, is not making the decision easy for her. J

NOTE: I’ve heavily edited this piece because I know some RFW members prefer their romance on the mild side. If you want to read the spicy chunk that was cut out, pick up the ebook or read some of it here.

Enjoy. And as always, I’d love to read your thoughts.
