Could you please tell us a bit about your book? The story? The characters?
Betrayal and Forgiveness is about a dysfunctional family. Sam is a widow father who failed at raising his daughter but is doing a better job at raising his son. Therefore, he doesn’t want his daughter around to influence his son. That’s what he thinks he is doing when in actuality, he is trying to forget the fact that he made a couple of promises that he has failed to keep. Lisa on the other hand knows he has broken one promise and vows, if she ever makes a promise, she will do whatever it takes to keep it, even if it means losing what matters the most to her.
How did you come up with the title and how much say did you have on the cover design?
The design was compliments of West Bow Press.
Do you have a favorite line or excerpt that you would like to share from your book?
I like them all. This book is my child. It’s all good to me.
What are some of your favorite ways to promote your work?
I’m still learning about promotions. West Bow Press put together a book advantage package in which they are supposed to work on having my book placed in different Christian bookstores but so far I haven’t been given a list of a single store that is carrying copies of my book, Also, you have to pay for everything you do with them. Their way of making money is to try and get me to buy books. That’s me being bitter. So I’ve turned to Pump Up Your Book for a virtual book tour. I’ll also work with Ms. Nadia Brown, CEO of Author and Book Promotions and I’ve been advertising on Facebook. I know I’ll be using them again. Some of the members of Facebook have been gracious enough to place Betrayal and Forgiveness on their face page.
What is a typical writing day like for you?
None of my days are the same. I actually take one day at a time. I have a neurological disease called Reflex Dystrophy Syndrome; very painful. I take a lot of medication and this makes it difficult to concentrate or stay awake.
What are some ways that you like to relax?
I go to church when I can. I spend time with my family and pets. Pray!
What author/s do you think are overlooked in the writing/reading world today?
What author would you most like to meet and why?
I would like to meet any author who remembers the struggle he/she went through willing to lend a hand. I want to give a shout out to Electa Rome Parks. She remembered what it was like before finding a publisher and she tried to help but we write in different genres.
Do you have any upcoming projects that you would like to share with readers?
I’ve got the rough drafts for a trilogy but I’m not sure if I have the brain power left to write it.
What is something about yourself that would come as a surprise to many people?
Just the fact that I struggle with RSD on a day to day bases.
