Book Tour Chasing Charlie......Giveaway














Raised in a family of rodeo champions on a South Texas cattle ranch, Charlie wants only one thing: to avoid thrill-seeking cowboys.





Davis Murphy, cowboy wannabe and one of Dallas's most eligible bachelors, needs a pretty and witty faux fiancée so his widowed mother will marry her longtime gentleman friend.





Charlie, his local librarian, seems the prefect choice.





Charlie's first reaction is to run, but she's promised herself to step out of her plain-jane routine.





When Charlie accepts, Davis's plan is set. But now Charlie's sweet ways are challenging his bachelor heart.








“Heartwarming, fast paced, laugh out loud fun.” ~ Susan Fox, Best-selling author





“Chasing Charlie will chase away the blues with a red dress, a real love, and a whole lot of fun!” ~ Christie Ridgway, Best-selling author





“Funny, sweet, poignant…best feel-good book I’ve read all year.” ~ Trish Jensen, USA TODAY Best-selling author





"A once innocent plan becomes an entangled romance . Funny and sweet. A most entertaining combination." ~ Carol Bozovich, Rendevzous Magazine

Whole Latte Love I read this book in three days, I love the emotion filled writing of the author. I love Dylan he is kind, gentle, giving and more. Carina seems to be completely opposite of Dylan. I kept reading to see where their relationship would land, would they fall in love or not? Could Carina change and be the woman she truly is? As I read on I was on an emotional roller coaster, Carina needed Dylan in her life to balance her out. You need to read this book and find out just how their love will manage. Or will it be business only? You will not be disappointed with this love story!!

Book Tour Yefon The Red Necklace








A powerful, emotional tale of ambition and courage by Cameroonian-born Sahndra Fon Dufe, the Common Wealth of Nations recognized author of 'Dear momma'. (2004)

Yefon: The RedNecklace (YRN) is the first book of the YEFON trilogy series. It will have you wrapped up with emotions you didn’t know you had!

Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different.

During the 1950's, in her Central African village, women are uneducated and are expected to either work on a farm or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more—she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at a book could mean her death.  Although everyone thinks she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters, her father knows she’s destined for greater things.

When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave her for inspiration—a red necklace. She soon comes to realize that the necklace is no ordinary ornament, but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a dangerous path that could lead to her freedom…or her death.

THE TRILOGY BEGINS.....

5% from the sales of EACH copy of YEFON hardcover novel is going to one of the following charities:

LOURDES COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS
BUI SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS ( MamaVerla Project)
WORLD LITERARY CRUSCADE

I read this book not knowing what to expect. As I read the struggles that Yefon seen and went thru I was put in touch with emotions I had not felt in awhile. This girl was made to feel different because she dared to be something more than what they wanted her to be. She long to read and be educated despite the threat of death if she was to learn. The Red Neck her father left her makes her dreams within her reach. Was there really some magic or protection sealed in the necklace...Yefon has many dreams she wishes to obtain and reach. Don't miss read this book the struggles of one young ladies dream to change the world around her.

Chemo started again this time half the dose of NexaVar......

the first time I started with Nexavar a targeted chemo theraphy it is not a cure but helps to slow down the progression of these tumors that have decide to appear on my kidneys.

The first time was a nightmare, I have to say I am overly melancholy it has not been that bad God has been carrying me thru the worst. Yes I feel like throwing up much of the time and the pain it comes and goes but the Joy of the Lord is stronger than all of that. I just think this too shall pass.

It is hard to continue to take this medication cause it does cause pain and wow at times. I know it is to keep them from coming back. I am healed it is not coming back the first time I always knew deep down somewhere that I was not better. I thank God because the Cancer that did hit my body was a slow moving cancer. Having all the surgeries I have had did help it not spread also. Everything that happens in your life is for a reason. One day it will be revealed why things were they way they were. You will say ahhhh I see, or Now I know why? God has had his hand on me from the beginning. He knew that I would be given up for adoption, I would have the parents I did. I would learn morality that has seemed to escaped some people. I would experience unconditional Love, something my sibling have yet to experience. I have three brothers and one sister that have gone to be with the Lord. I always wonder if they ever knew unconditional Love? I pray they did. I pray my other siblings experience it with all my heart. There are times in your life when you know you need to bow out of people lifes. My stress level is better when I stay to myself with just my family. God is good.

I love Sundays when I have enough energy to go to church, it is a special sunday every sunday my eldest daughter is married to a Pastor it is now a place where we can meet as a family and celebrate life with Jesus in the family what a happy home.  Having God in you life is awesome and fun, even while going thru chemo. I am thankful that our family get together point in the Church! That is so awesome love it!!!!

Yes Cancer is no fun, Yes chemo is awful, Praise the Lord in and thru every situation believing in his word and promises knowing that his will is done is every situation. Having in my heart the peace that passes all understanding and it is relaxing here.

I am wondering.......Just going beyond

I finally gathered the courage to read about the chemo pill I am receiving. It is to slow the Cancer down it is target therapy. It targets the bad cells or sometimes the good ones and kills them. It only Slows it down, the type of Cancer I have it is already slow but I also have a nodule on my lung small but with this persistant cough I should let him know or make him aware of the problem.
Anywho this drug is to slow it down not cure it. I see the doctor tomorrow and I will ask him all the question I have. I have good function of the one kidney but now use in having good function if I have cancer still. I believe it is gone I have a peace about that. I know I need to do it to make sure but do it really, what if I am doing more harm that good? It is hard to say I wish we had money enough so we could live well. Like we could go to Europe and check out what they are doing for cures of Cancer? They use a lot of alternative medicine.

I am concerned with the wear on my kidney if I continue the medication. I believe I am healed already, I received a word from the Lord saying to pick up my bed and walk by faith I am healed. I refuse to live like I am dying.

My mother was not educated but she learned about what I needed to eat to bring up my iron I was always anemic as a child. She gave me Geritol it tasted nasty, she make me protein shakes I loved those! She made the best liver and onions I know not everyone loves it but I do that was a dish my mom and I would love to share together. She did everything she could to prevent me from getting sick. I did not take care of myself, I forgot that the doctor had told me I would have to watch out for kidney cancer. I was about 12 yrs old then.

 I try not to think about this to much, it is not good for me. I will remain positive, standing in faith, filled with the Joy of the Lord. I have my feet shroud with the preparation of Faith.  When I get up in the Morning it will be a new day I will go to the doctor and listen to their recommendation knowing that the LORD MY GOD is speaking thru them In Jesus Name. Amen. This Doctor treating the cancer is a good doctor, he feels bad because I been telling him for a year already that it was back I was getting sick like before but he thought because if was over five years I was in the clear and he was wrong. Now I must put my faith in the Lord totally, I feel as if I am just floating thru life, like someone else is doing the driving. It must be my Lord, these are the times he carries us, when we don't know what to do, when fear is there but your FAITH is STRONGER. These are the time we must let go and let God trusting he has it all planned out. Hoping that you will be around to see your grandchildren get married and have children. I pray my husband and I live a long life together. We both have had hurts that burrowed down in our hearts. Only now are we beginning to heal and feel happy Lord give us Happiness together if nothing else, Fill our home with your JOY, your Understanding, Your Love Your Life Your Direction. Lord I am your servant I am not much but I am here. Thank you for your healing Power.

Some of you who read this will think another flake, it is alright everyone is allowed their own opinion and feelings. If we didn't think and feel different we would be a boring people. If I offend you I am sorry. If I have encourage you in anyway AMEN!! If I helped you thru the moment Praise the Lord.  Good Night and God Bless !!!!
