Saving Her Shadow by Lutishia Lovely

Saving Her Shadow by Lutishia Lovely | Publish Date: March 31, 2020

“Vibrant characters, artful storytelling, and an original voice make Lutishia Lovely worth every moment.” —Donna Hill

Lutishia Lovely returns with a compelling and provocative new novel where the clash between personal freedoms and religious convictions become a matter of life and death.

When eighteen-year-old Raina Reed is given an ultimatum—her family or her first love—she chooses the latter, leaves the rigid cult community she’s grown up in and finds herself shunned, ex-communicated . . . ghosted. Not seeing her parents is tolerable. Raina is happy for more time with her sweet, talented boyfriend Bryce, and enjoys the freedom found in living with him, his free-spirited cousin, Jackie, and Jackie’s mom Valerie, a struggling attorney. But her heart breaks at the thought of not seeing her baby sister. Abby is ten years younger and they’ve never spent one day apart—until now.

While Raina embraces her new life, she can’t shake her concern about Abby, especially when a lingering illness worsens and her parents refuse to seek medical help. Raina is determined to break through the religious rules that stand in the way of her sister’s well-being. Drawing on her new family and support system, including chanting, angel-card reading Jackie, justice-seeking Valerie, loving Bryce, and his eccentric grandmother, Raina finds her own kind of faith, one built on a love strong enough to move mountains . . .

Love’s Sweet Kiss Excerpt:

They went to the bar and ordered glasses of wine. As they sipped, she watched the people still dancing. A few of them seemed to have no idea what rhythm meant, but they were having fun and that’s all that mattered. She turned and found Byron staring at her intently. “What is it?”

For a moment, he said nothing. “I was just thinking about my prom and how I had been looking forward to dancing with you. When your parents wouldn’t let you go with me…” His voice trailed off.

Nzinga understood. She later found out he’d gone alone and that hurt her, as well. They’d both missed out on that special moment in time. Without thinking, she reached up and touched his cheek. “I know. We can’t go back, so let’s enjoy ourselves tonight.”

The music changed to a ballad. Byron took their glasses, set them on the table behind them and escorted her to the dance floor once again. “You’re right, and I am enjoying myself.”

When he slid an arm around her waist, pulled her close and moved in time with the sultry beat, she almost melted.

“I always wondered what it would feel like to hold you in my arms and it’s even better than I imagined.”

Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins Novel (The Seven Deadly Sins Book 3) by Victoria Christopher Murray

Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins Novel (The Seven Deadly Sins Book 3) by Victoria Christopher Murray

Passion, money, and a deliciously devious twist: Greed is the newest novel in award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray’s Seven Deadly Sins series—“the drama of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (Booklist)—and soon to be a Lifetime movie.

You can’t put a price on love…

Zuri Maxwell isn’t happy. Her job is a grind, and money is always tight. Her boyfriend Stephon is the best part of life, but between his income as an artist and her commission-based paycheck, they are barely scraping by.

When Zuri meets a sleek entrepreneur eager to pick her brain, she jumps at the chance to talk business with someone who has everything she wants. As he wines and dines her, Zuri starts moving in elite circles, and she faces a crossroads: Will she give up the stable, loving life she knows for one that glitters, but may not be gold?

BOOK REVIEW

PatriciaW gives Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins Novel 5 stars

How far will you go to live out your dreams?

When her life is unfulfilling, what’s a woman to do? That is the question facing Zuri as she grapples with living the affordable life she has versus grabbing the high roller life dangled before her. What’s so wrong with wanting and experiencing the finer things in life?

Murray does it again with this third book in her Seven Deadly Sins series, this installment the strongest, most intriguing of the series so far, at least for this reader. That’s the beauty of this series. As each storyline wrestles with one of the deadly sins, readers are forced to do the same. I would never go down the path that Zuri takes in Greed, but I understand wanting more out of life than one’s current position and I’m sure many of Murray’s readers will too.

As I read this book, I was reminded that we are to be content with where we find ourselves (Phil 4:11-13), a lesson Zuri certainly could have benefitted from.

I can only imagine what Murray has in store for her fans with the remainder of the series, but if Greed is any indicator, each book will provide great entertainment mixed with a bit of soul-searching. Can’t wait for book 4!

Intimate Conversation with Massocki Ma Massocki

Massocki Ma Massocki is a columnist, activist and pan-Africanist. He has written columns for newspapers around the world as well as articles for regional and international organisations. Massocki has also given talks and conferences in Africa, Asia and Europe on Pan-Africanism and global issues. Massocki was born in Cameroon, West Africa.

BPM: Please, share something our readers wouldn’t know about you.

I have always been fascinated by my birth. Thanks to the mystical intervention of my great grandfather Djami Som, I was born. Before my mother had me, she gave birth to two dead babies, so when I was conceived, she thought she would also lose me.

However, one morning, at around 3:00, when my mother was 3 three months pregnant with me, my great grandfather—who passed away 15 years before I was born—appeared to my mother and told her, “I came so that the baby you carry will live. I left medicine outside the house in a snail shell. At 6:00 a.m., you shall collect the medicine and place it under your bed during your whole pregnancy so that the child will live.” This is how I was born—a premature child.

BPM: If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

As we cannot see our own faces, we need a mirror to do so. Likewise, society is a reflection of ourselves. Some have described me as “lionheart” and “fearless lion”; and others, as “king.”

BPM: Is writing your full-time career? How much time do you spend writing?

Right now, writing is not my source of income. However, I was born to write. It is my destiny, and I cannot run away from it, just like how a fish cannot run away from water. Let me tell you a story.

When my father was in secondary school, Candide—a novel by Voltaire, a French philosopher—was part of his curriculum. Candide was also the main character in Voltaire’s novel. My father liked Candide so much that the first name he gave me was Candide. However, I decided to get rid of my first and middle names, which are European, to affirm my African identity. Moreover, Voltaire made racist remarks towards Africans.

BPM: Tell us about your first published book. What was the journey like?

So far, I have written 10 unpublished books, and The Pride of an African Migrant is the first to be published among them.

The Pride of an African Migrant’s first draft was written in 2010 while I was in England, and it is getting published 10 years later, in 2020. It is needless to say that the journey of getting this book published proved to be challenging.

Since 2010, I have received more than 5000 rejection letters from publishers. Most of those letters praised my writing skills, and yet I ended up with rejections.

Africa and its diaspora are at the center of all my works, considering that the publishing industry is overwhelmingly white at 89%, while black people are only 1% of the same industry. This also explains all those rejections. However, those rejection letters immensely helped in improving my manuscript’s quality.

I want to take this opportunity to remind aspiring writers that the pyramids of Egypt were not built in a day or two. They should not be discouraged by publishers’ rejections because these are opportunities for improvement. Do not just look for publishers; find the right one. There is always one publisher who can’t wait to receive your manuscript.
