Genre: Adult Fiction, Contemporary

About The Author



Cheryl currently resides in the Sunshine State with plans to return to her hometown Detroit shortly. For the past fifteen years, she has been busy writing contemporary women’s fiction. While writing is her first love, making delicious green smoothies is easily her second. She also enjoys spoiling her miniature Schnauzer and whipping up healthy meals from recipes she finds online.

About The Book




Two people in the same city but worlds apart.

Until Ray is an unconventional love story of how two young people transitioning into adulthood find each other and develop a bond that will be tested through three decades.

RAY IS LOST …
He lives in northwest Detroit with his mother. When he’s not at home, he’s either at the mall selling women’s shoes or in the club. In both places, he's focused on one thing—picking up women. Only now he’s ready to make a change but isn’t sure how to do it.

THEN SARITA ARRIVES …
At twenty-four, she has an MBA, is a CPA, and works in upper-level management at GM. But all that success comes at a cost: she’s lonely and craves the one thing she’s never had—attention from men.
Dive into a love story filled with soul-searching drama told from two very different perspectives. Until Ray, the first book of a trilogy, is set in the mid-eighties in Detroit, where the author was born and raised.

#VIRTUALBOOKTOUR #NEWBOOKALERT Adunni Dares to Dream by Taiwo I Ajao #CHILDREN #HISTORICAL #NONFICTION


Write Now Literary is pleased to announce Adunni Dares to Dream by Taiwo I Ajao, Virtual Book Tour, June 5-30, 2017.

Genre: Historical Fiction, Kids, Youth


Author/Illustrator Bio




The Dr. Ajaos are a husband-wife, doctor-nurse team who have a joint passion for health literacy, preventative healthcare, and education for at-risk groups in the Global setting. Mrs. Taiwo I Ajao, the Author, is a Registered Nurse with a Master’s in Public Health in Maternal and Child Health, while Dr. ‘Wale Ajao, the Illustrator, is an internationally-trained medical doctor with a Master's of Arts in Communications & Producing for Film and Video. Together, The DrAjaos intend to address health literacy via it’s most fundamental forms: using the arts of writing, entertainment, and communication to educate children and their parents. Adunni Dares to Dream is the beginning of a beautiful merger of not just a celebration of educational achievement, but also of Faith, Hope, Love and Miracles.

About The Book



Adunni Dares to Dream is the true tale of a poor African girl who just wanted to go to school. Although she was a part of a very hardworking family, Adunni just could not have the finer things in life, like school, books, & literacy. In her culture, girls were just expected to look pretty, get married and have children. But Adunni wished for something more.

As Adunni dares to dream , she inspires many others to dream too, including a handsome young man who couldn't stop dreaming about her! So Adunni has choices to make. Does she give in to her society's expectations? Does she chose the status quo? What are Adunni's dreams and where do her dreams take her?

Excerpt

Whenever Adunni brought up the idea of school, somehow Mama found a way to end it. Despite the fact that she was illiterate, Mama was sharp, hardworking and very resourceful with money. Mama had married young, as was common in the culture, and she started to bear children as a teenager. It was unfortunate, however, that she experienced the loss of many of those children during childbirth. Only Adunni and her sister had survived, and Adunni wondered often about what she could have done to save those who hadn't made it. Adunni was tearful as she remembered how her mother had nearly died last year during childbirth. Was every girl expected to get married and have children, even if it killed her? Adunni didn’t want to be like other girls: she wanted to be great! Adunni believed that to be great, she must be smart and be able to read, and learn great things. 




How did you come with the idea for your current story?
This story was not my idea. It's a true story, written by God. I share the story, because I believe it needs to be told and that generations need to hear it.

What is your favorite scene in the book? Why?
My favorite scene in the book is when Adunni's Mom started to encourage her dream. That one jester gave her the courage to take action towards her dreams. You see, Adunni's Mom was my Grandmom, and Grandma's belief in Adunni is what propelled her forward. Likewise, Adunni (my Mom) has always been my driving force. Her words and approval has always meant the world to me, and when she tells me I can do it, I have tended to believe her and go for it.
It's just one of the

What is the highest goal that you desire to meet as an author?
The highest goal that I would like to achieve is a full & deeper merger of my role with that of my husband, my illustrator & publisher--plus literally, every other role! My highest goal is to be one mind with him and create a form where we unite to create more literary masterpieces and use our other skills in healthcare and education to impact the health, safety and well-being of children and their families. Just like Adunni, my husband, Dr. Ajao, loves to learn, and I believe that this love can be transferred to others. Also, a love of learning translates into a love for teaching.

What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?

Wait for it. The inspiration might not come when you want it, but God sends each part right on time! Each aspect of your dream is a milestone, from the title to the content to the imagery. Wait for it. He makes all things beautiful in His time!!!


How do you spend your free time? Do you have a favorite place to go and unwind?
We love a variety of wholesome music. Unwinding is likely a free evening to clean & cook to good music.

What do you have in store next for your readers?

A lot of folks are enamored by the Mike character. I'm going to go deeper to reveal his character, his thought processes and his unique wisdom.

Describe your book in three words?
A Pleasant Surprise.
A Breathe of Fresh Air

#VIRTUALBOOKTOUR The Bread of the Servant, by Elizabeth G. Honaker #CHRISTIAN #DRAMAPLAY



Write Now Literary is pleased to announce The Bread of The Servant, a Christian Drama Play by Elizabeth G. Honaker, May 22-26, 2017.     
 
Genre: Christian Drama Play

ISBN-10: 1508655707

ISBN-13: 978-1508655701


                                     Author the Author                                                          


Elizabeth Golibart Honaker hails from Sparta, Tennessee, where she teaches writing support and English at Motlow Community College. Her undergraduate degree is in Liberal Arts, and her first MA is in Theology. This has given her the breadth and scope to write over fifteen full-length passion plays in the last twenty years – seven of which are in print with others being prepared for publication – as well as dozens of shorter scripts, short stories, and poems on Christian topics. Her first historical fiction novel, Come Before Winter, was published in 2014. In that same year, she completed her second MA in English and Creative Writing (Fiction) at Southern New Hampshire University.
When she is not writing or tutoring, she spends her time devising new home projects for Allen, her husband of 45 years. She also enjoys communicating with her two wonderful grown children and buying (and making) trinkets for her four lively grandchildren. She is passionate about sharing Christ, missional activities, and her local church. She also loves gardening, sewing, piano playing, and Star Trek as time permits.
                                                                               
 About The Book


The Bread of the Servant: An Easter Play in Four Acts. This script was written to serve a small church drama group with a big heart for witnessing. There are speaking roles for 27 actors, and several non-speaking parts, but it can be performed with fewer actors if need be. Scenery does not have to be elaborate, but two defined performance areas are needed. Stage lighting is also an important element, but it can be fixed or portable. The play centers around the Apostle John in his old age, attempting to explain to Diana, a bitter, jaded slave woman, the life-changing impact Jesus can have on an open heart. John recalls for Diana the events of the Lord's earthly ministry, explaining his own transformation from a headstrong young fisherman into a more spiritually mature man longing to serve his Beloved Master.
