Escape Clause



What happens when the battle lines drawn become blurry? In Mary Billiter’s fun novel of solving mysteries and falling in love, a gorgeous PR guru and a happy-go-lucky single mom are linked by a determination to discover the truth and a sizzling connection.

Sometimes to escape a bad situation, you have to grit your teeth and bare your clause.

When competing hotel owners, the Carlyles, attempt a takeover of the former Brubaker hotel, now The Point Resort and also Kelsey Donigan’s second home, the front desk manager discovers long-buried secrets between the two families. Better yet, she uncovers an escape clause that not only prevents a takeover, but may also overtake generations of animosity between the two families.

Kelsey finds an ally in the most unlikely of locals. Hotel heir Oliver Carlyle’s devotion and determination to honor his mother’s final wishes places him in direct opposition with his powerful family.

Can the star-crossed couple save the historic, beachfront hotel, or will they lose each other in the process?

Purgatorium



When his watch resets to zero, his morning starts again. A handsome, young urban professional awakens inside his cavernous high-rise apartment. He is an emotionless drone of a man content with his self-structured regiment and amazing wealth, and he is totally oblivious to his abnormal lifestyle. Every day lasts an hour with the time always ending right at 60 minutes, giving him only 5 minutes to stay at one specific time zone in his structured routine. He keeps reliving the same day over and over, barely able to remember anything from the day before and unable to maintain mental order as he stumbles through his strange existence.

One day, his routine is interrupted when seven strangers separately appear. Everything slams to a halt as they tell him that his physical body is in a coma and his consciousness is currently in a purgatory-like realm. As his body lies in a coma, his mind has been living a lavish lifestyle at a price: his sinful memories and his autonomy.

After finding out his life support is coming to an end in eight hours, he must now run a race to get his life back. He must relyon this group who seem to tender on truth and violence to get him to the finish line on time. He just needs to remember who he is and come to terms with what he has done if he’s ever going to decide if he is a soul survivor ready for a second chance at life or a lost soul bound by no redemption. 

The clock is ticking, and if he is going to survive, he'll have to face his demons and outthink the clock that has constrained him for so long. For each minute that passes teeters the fine line between his life and death.

The Last Portrait



It was a week and a-half before Christmas. My daughter, Monique Nelson, had just finished having her annual holiday portrait taken with her two year old son, Jayden at a one-hour photo shop on Stockton Boulevard in Sacramento. After the photo-shoot, they stopped in at Fly Cuts & Styles barbershop next door, where Jayden often got his hair cut, to get gum from the 25¢ gumball machine and to say hi to the barbers before heading home. Just as Monique was buckling little Jayden into his car seat, what police described as “a massive firefight” broke out between two rival gangs who happened to also be at the barbershop. Monique instinctively draped her body over her baby to protect him. One bullet smashed through the window of her Chevy Tahoe and into her body.  

Six other people were injured in that maelstrom. Jayden survived. But Monique did not. She died in her baby’s lap. Six people were subsequently arrested and charged in Monique’s murder.  

I had recently taken a health-related, early retirement from a successful career as an elementary school principal. My three children had grown to be wonderful, independent young people with gifts and talents of their own. But immediately after Monique’s violent death, I found myself spiraling into the Black Hole of grief—an unimaginable place that too many American mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents and other family members, friends, and a lovers all too often find themselves. I thought I had a way out when I focused my energies on the task of raising the child of my child, which was Monique’s wish as expressed in her will. But that carpet of comfort was pulled out from under me when Jayden’s father appeared to reclaim the son he had not previously known—and won the custody court battle. The spiral into unabated heartache only deepened. And then my faith left me.

What do you do when the faith that you were brought up in does not hold up against the grief that is thrust upon you? When you feel abandoned by the very deity you’ve spent a lifetime worshiping? And you can no longer see your way to forgiveness, reconciliation, or even living? 

The Last Portrait: A Psalm for Monique is my answer to that question. It is my memoir, a story of life and love, love lost, and a mother’s desperate struggle to fight her way out of the Black Hole of grief and heartache. It is also a memorial to my daughter, Monique.

The Holy Grail of Book Publishing


The Holy Grail of Book Launching (paperback)

also known as

The Holy Grail of Book Publishing (for Kindle)

by Mimi Emmanuel


100+ Five star reviews, nice LARGE size book (9.5 x 11 inches) and LARGE easy to read font, 362 pages.

5.0 out of 5 starsIf you buy just one book on self publishing (and Amazon Bestselling) I recommend you this one.
ByVassia Sarrion May 1, 2017
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

I am a book coach, and I have read all that there is on Amazon when it comes to book publishing. This is the only book that gives ALL this detailed information, step by step process, as well as a huge amount of resources that you could never find alone even if you tried for ages - and to be honest - not many other authors accept to share (or they don't know about). In addition to this, the author is very modest, she admits that if she had not all this help from her daughter and her launching team, she would not succeed an Amazon bestseller status. If you bought just one book on book publishing and promoting, I would strongly recommend this one.

Bent Ink



Atlanta is hot and wet and it isn't the humidity. Come and play in Little Five Points Georgia as the tribe of friends and family witness changes that challenge everything they've protected and worked toward. 
Bentley (ATL Midtown series by Nichole Harris) was content. Right? Sure, he was a principle at an advancing tech company. The creator was his mentor and the culture of the company fit him perfectly. His predilection for ink and piercings meant nothing there. It allowed him to be back in Atlanta, close to his sister and not too damn close to his Mother in Augusta. His other family was dormant at the moment. Just like he liked it. Just as they should be. He had a great gym where he could train and spar. 

Hell he even had somewhat of a social life because of an embarrassing attempt to reconnect with an old girlfriend. He had made several friends in the city. Everything was settling out nicely. He went to a holiday party and just as quickly as a thunderstorm could darken the sky in June, Amy Brody turned his way. It was a beginning. If he managed not to be strung up by her brother and friends, it could be a beginning. He should run. He new he should, but he wouldn't, he couldn't. She already had a part of him he swore was dead.  

Amy-I had been damn near dead for over two years and out of nowhere this man appeared. I had no reason or right to trust him, but I did. I not only trusted him, I was mesmerized by him. He was a blond leopard with ice blue eyes that pierced me. William Bentley Carter III came to my tattoo shop and took me to coffee. Then he gave me my first sexual kiss in over two years. It was delivered with aggression and hunger. Given my past, how could I allow it? I drank it in like a starving inmate.
