Reaper’s Promise by Kiki Leach

Colette: I woke up in Vegas married to my ex-boyfriend’s hot as hell biker brother. Not that I’m exactly complaining considering I’ve practically been in love with him since forever, but… Record scratch. Wait a second. I bet you’re wondering how the hell a kindergarten teacher got here, right? Well join the (biker) club, because so am I!

Roman: She woke up next to me in Vegas with a diamond cuff around her ankle and a matching ring on her finger, and is wondering how the hell she got here. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that she only said yes to my proposal because she thought I was my inept kid brother. I didn’t have the guts to tell her that I’ve wanted to know the taste of her skin and the feel of her legs wrapped around my waist from the moment she was first introduced to me as his girlfriend nine years ago. But I DO have the b*lls to tell her that since she’s now officially been made mine, there’s no way in f*ck that I’m letting her go.

SUNRISE FROM AN ICY HEART: A MEMOIR by Claudette Alexander

SFAIH-2-WEB-smallFour years of daily passionate loving, near the ocean, in the car, during moonlight days and sunset horizons, coupled with glasses of rum punch, came to a halt when thick lipped, Linus Hyacinth, emigrated from St. Lucia to Canada in October 1972 in search of greener pastures.

In the midst of trying to adjust to the extreme changes in climate, he searches for work as an architectural draftsman. Miserable and missing his lover, he worries about her loyalty amidst a sea of man-peckers. He writes her weekly professing his love and his desire for her to join him.

Nine months later, June 1973, the naive Claudette Alexander, sets off on her journey in pursuit of love and prosperity. In Canada, love takes on a different direction as she tries to adjust to Linus’ broken promises, culture shock, racism and single parenting.

As she embarks on the sea of love, she encounters stormy weather and her heart gets as frigid as the North American winters. It will take a special man to crack through her icy heart.

After four failed relationships, she meets Malcolm James. He is quiet, patient and soft spoken and has loved her when he first met her as a teenager. He has yearned and longed for her. Crossed the ocean, and had his fair share of failed relationships.

But Malcolm needs to break down these walls and bore through her icy heart to rescue her from herself and get to the sunrise as she battles kidney failure.

Targeted Audience: Ages 21 – 70

Author Bio:
Claudette Alexander is obsessed with love and romance. As a teenager growing up in St.Lucia she was fascinated with the Mills and Boon series and always envisioned some Prince coming down some mountain to rescue her heart.
Her other passion is fighting for the rights of the underdog. She did a good bit of fighting as a union president. These days she is fighting to empower people with knowledge on how to live happily with chronic conditions.
Her first novel SUNRISE FROM AN ICY HEART: A MEMOIR is about her journey to find the right man to love her and the joys and headaches of raising loving sons.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always been an avid reader of books and had the desire to write children’s books. I also wanted to write about the love I shared with the fathers of my son so they could know the love that preceded their existence.

Raising loving sons is such an uphill battle with tears and joys and I wanted to motivate single parents to smash through the fence of fear and fly.

As someone on dialysis for ten years I also wanted to offer hope to people living with a chronic condition and inspire them to live happily while managing the card they have been dealt with.

Diary of a Freedom Writer “The Experience” by Darrius Garrett @herbanprince

Book-Cover
Survivor… a word continuously thought of when reading this memoir. Upon the release of The Freedom Writers Diary and film adaptation starring Hilary Swank in 2007, New York Times bestselling author Darrius Garrett realized that both book and movie tell the Freedom Writer Story as a whole, but not on a personal level. During speaking engagements, the same questions always surface: ‘Did Ms. Gruwell change you? How did you make it out of the gang life? What stopped you from killing yourself?’ Darrius’s answers are inside.

Diary of a Freedom Writer takes you on a journey beyond the classrooms to the treacherous streets of Long Beach, California. An innocent little boy born in poverty and raised in a violent environment, Darrius became a product of the streets, written off by the school and judicial systems alike, growing up in an environment full of gangs and drugs. He spent his life searching for a father figure until he became a Freedom Writer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and finally a father himself. His story is that of a man realizing his experiences are what made him the man he has been seeking to be all his life. Upon beating the odds, Diary of a Freedom Writer serves as proof that Darrius’s story of struggle, life, change, and hope will uplift, educate, encourage, and inspire.

Targeted Audience: Young Adult (12-20) & Adults

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
With the latest violence that has been occurring in the world from school shootings to the Trayvon Martin shooting, Oscar Grant and the usual hood violence that occurred. I knew with the life I used to live that I would have been one of those people that you hear about all the time by being either the victim or the shooter and because of my exposure to writing and people that care like Erin Gruwell (Darrius English Teacher from Freedom Writers) and others, I realized that I have an obligation to tell my story to help others not take the same route that I did. Diary of A Freedom Writer is more than the Freedom Writers story…Its my story; a story of chance,Hope, redemption and tolerance. The fork in the road to those that aren’t quite sure which way to turn.
