BLOG TOUR: The Knife In My Back by Stacey Covington-Lee



Brook Mansfield was born into a life of privilege. She had a family that loved her and all of the advantages that came from being rich, smart and beautiful. She also had friends, one of which was Tameka Williams.

Brook Mansfield was born into a life of privilege. She had a family that loved her and all of the advantages that came from being rich, smart and beautiful. She also had friends, one of which was Tameka Williams.

Tameka was a desperate woman looking to gain fortune, fame and love at any cost. Despite the warnings from others, Brook took Tameka in and tried to love her as a sister. However, after taking the one thing that meant the most to Brook, it was time for the tables to turn. Tameka had used and betrayed her for the last time.

Excerpt:

Wayne held Tameka while she sobbed. He was so confused as to how to handle or comfort her. He had never seen someone so obsessed with someone else’s life. He could not understand why she couldn’t be happy with the life that she had made for herself. Couldn’t understand why she couldn’t be happy with the life that they could build together. And as he held her, Tameka came to the realization that he didn’t know and would never understand her. She would never be able to get him to see things from her point of view. So she decided to dry up and let him believe that he helped her feel better and that her little tantrum was over. She would keep her feelings to herself from now own.

“Tameka, I promise you that together we will make a great life for ourselves. We will have our own family and a beautiful home. You’ll be proud of the life we make together. I promise.”

“I know, baby, I guess I just had to get all of this off of my chest. Jealousy is an ugly thing and I hate that I let it do this to me,” Tameka said with an ugly smirk on her face.

She didn’t mean a word of what she was saying and Wayne should have realized that. But instead he chose to believe what made him feel better about his beloved, Tameka. He would learn soon to see her for what she was and not the woman he wanted her to be. But for now, he held her in his arms and held on to the dream that he had of the wonderful life he wanted them to share.

Stacey Covington-Lee is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. She has written multiple manuals and training guides for various companies and local government. However, it was her love for literature that led her to pin her first novel in 2009. Since that time, Stacey has written several short stories and two additional novels. Her first published novel, The Knife in My Back, was re-released by Delphine Publications November 2012.

Stacey continues to live in an Atlanta suburb with her family and is currently working on her next novel. Visit her at www.staceycovingtonlee.com for a full chapter excerpt of The Knife In My Back and a sneak peek at her second novel, The First Cut Is The Deepest.

Get to Know Stacey:

Q. How old were you when you first started writing and what motivated you?

A. I was around eleven years old when I read a book by Judy Blume called Are You There God? It’s Me Margret. Something about that book lit a spark in me and set me on a journey to write my own pre-teen novel.

Q. What inspires your writing?

A. I am inspired by the people around me. I love watching how folks interact with one another , how they speak to each other and what angers them or brings them joy.

Q. Your novel, The Knife In My Back, primarily focuses on the relationships between female friends, why is that?

A. There are numerous books that discuss the male/female relationship. However, the relationship between girlfriends can be so complex and at time so difficult that I felt it deserved to be highlighted.

Q. Does the book primarily focus on the negative aspects of friendship?

A. While the relationship between characters Tameka and Brook is a very volatile one and dominates the storyline, there is also the loving and supportive friendship between Mia and Brook and it celebrates the kind of friendship we all long for.

Q. Was any part of this book based on real life experiences?

B. I think that we have all had to deal with a troubled friendship at some point in time, but fortunately I’ve not had a female in my life that has presented me with the evil and deceptive ways that Tameka possess.

Q. Would men also find your novel interesting or do you think they would view it as a “chick novel?”

A. Men would absolutely find the novel entertaining. It’s a great story with wonderful male characters. The men in this book are strong, successful men that support and love their women. There’s no male bashing here, but plenty of lust, love and drama.

Q. Can we expect to read more from you in the near future?

A. Yes, you can look for my next novel, The First Cut Is The Deepest, to hit bookshelves early 2013. It is the follow up to The Knife In My Back and begs the question, are some people beyond redemption?

Her follow up novels Luck of the Draw, Who Do I Run To, Now You Wanna Come Back part 2 and Who Do I Run To Now, has also top the charts on Amazon, coming in at number one for Amazon Kindle. Anna is not only a writer, but she is a radio personality for AAMBC Radio and she writes for her local community for their local monthly new. Soon to release her sixth novel Split Image, Anna is working on the final installment for her hit series Now You Wanna Come Back. The third and final novel is due to release April of 2013 and Anna doesn’t plan to hang her writing shoes on the shelf anytime soon, so readers keep your ears and eyes open for more to come from this romance queen. Anna currently resides in Groesbeck, Texas with her husband Chris and her daughter Tyra. She is currently the GM for a hotel in her area and hopes to one day have a publishing company of her own.

Please tell us about you and your book(s).

My latest book is titled Split Image and it is about a woman from a small town that pursued her dreams of being a singer against her southern Baptist minister father’s wishes and ends up in a very bad situation with a man she should have never gotten involved with. She lies about where she is from and her family and hides the fact that she has an identical twin sister, who will suffer for her sister’s bad choices. Tell us why we should read your book(s)? Well my books are categorized as romance, but they offer realistic story-lines that average people go through. Since I don’t write fantasy romance more readers can relate, because the story lines are based on scenarios that could really happen.

Get to Know Anna:

1. What inspired you to write it?

A dream actually. I dreamed it and woke up looking for my pad and pen.

2. What do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?

Spending time with my family. We are close and we do a lot together. We are very competitive and we always have some type of game going on.

3. Do you have a motto?

Yes, it is you get what you put in. If you put in much work, you get much success, if you put in a little, you get a little.

4. What are your pet peeves?

Be a man or woman of your word. Do what you say you’re going to do. 5. If you had a chance to have a dinner date with anyone-dead or alive- who would it be? Why?

Christ, because I have a million and one questions for him.

6. What is one word that describes you?

Funny.

7. What is the best advice someone gave you?

You can’t hold on to someone who wants to go. You should never have to convince someone to stay with you.

Conversations of a Watchman: Prayers to Frame your Prophetic Destiny Virtual Book Tour



About the Book

How does a person move from a place deficient of light? How can an individual shift from a place of complete and utter chaos, obscurity, apathy, and adversity? The pathway to transformation is through in-depth conversations with the One True God of Creation–El•ō•hēm'. For you to move to a place of prophetic providence, your conversation must be divinely inspired. Hebrews 11:3 states: “The worlds were framed by the Word of God.” Framing begins with an idea, expands as a result of the imagination, and gives life through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit through divine utterance for a specific purpose. Declaring the Word of God releases the creative power of God for authentic transformation.

K. E. Allen designed this book to draw you into a deeper conversation with the Father to renew your prayer life, mend your brokenness, enlighten your pathway, and arrange your chaos according to the divine order of God. This resource will help you exercise your kingly and priestly authority and impose kingdom mandates to release God’s original intent in your life, family, community, city, region, and nation. It will encourage you to frame your prophetic destiny.

About the Author

K. E. ALLEN has proven to be an incredible, spiritual force in the Kingdom of God by displaying a God given indomitable spirit to change atmospheres and environments. Through the extraordinary gift of intercession and pure worship, she has become a spiritual weapon in the hand of the Lord whose knowledge is relevant for the church today. She is a dynamic leader, extravagant worshiper and prophetic intercessor whose worship has become a definitive lifestyle that penetrates and permeates every facet of her life and the lives of those she touches. Karla is a leader to leaders and lives a life of committed consistent intercession, giving selflessly of herself in her prayer closet. For over 20 years, as a student and teacher of the Word and woman of faith, she implements the truth of the Bible through the dynamics of intercession and worship that releases a tangible anointing. Knowing firsthand the transformative power of God in her own life, she is determined to see others healed, delivered and set free. Karla will stop at nothing to see God move in the lives of His people!

Tell us about yourself?

I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. I have a strong legacy of women and men of God that have impacted my life. But, the person who has had the greatest influence on my life is my grandmother, Mary Williams. She was a strong woman of faith and prayer. In a denomination where female preachers were not accepted, one could always find her preaching, teaching, and hosting meetings/shut-ins where people would be filled with the Holy Spirit and demons were cast out. In fact, I have her ordination papers that she kept hidden under her bed. Why do I tell you about my grandmother when you ask about me? Because if it wasn’t for her courage and strength I would not be who I am. I watched her life until the day of her passing and as an adult, it is my desire to emulate her life. As she was a woman of wisdom and grace, so am I. Who am I? Inside of me is a strong inheritance of prayer, faith, and a full life in Christ Jesus-all passed down to me by my grandmother, my grandfather, and my parents.

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

By far, the most difficult aspect of writing this book was the editing process.

Did you have to do any special research for this book?

When one writes about principles pertaining to the Bible, there is always extensive research and study involved so as to ensure accuracy.

Why do you write? Is it something you have always done or always wanted to do? Or is it something you started fairly recently?

I write because it is a passion I enjoy. As far as I can remember, I have always loved to write. As a young child I wrote fiction stories all the time. In my teenage years, I wrote poetry and by the time was in college I started writing songs. So, writing, in some form, has always been a part of my life.

How did you feel when you received the first copy of your book?

It was a surreal moment. Being able to hold what God had given me in my hands literally overwhelmed me. My heart was filled with so much gratitude towards God and all the people that had help my God-given dream become a reality.

The Blood Done Signed My Name Virtual Tour with M. Ann Ricks


Getting to Know More about M. Ann Ricks

What can we expect from you in the future?

It is my hope to continue to assist other Christian writers with my literary workshop for aspiring Christian writers called, “Conversations…. Writing to Reconcile”. I had the wonderful opportunity to share it regionally but would love to be afforded a venue that could allow me to do so nationally. As believers in Christ it is our mandate to reconcile others to God. Using our literary gifts is certainly one way we can accomplish that awesome task. Additionally, for all who are interested, I distribute electronically, (on-line), a monthly newsletter, M. Ann’s Literary Communiqué and prayerfully it will continue to increase in circulation. Lastly, I’ve begun my 4th novel, The SHIFT!

How do we find out about you and your books? Please feel free to visit my website www.mannricks.net. Interested readers may find all of my novels on all online literary establishments. (i.e.: www.amazon.com / www.bn.com).

How may readers contact you?

For speaking engagements, Literary Dialogues and book club gatherings, or simply to provide feedback, please feel free to contact me directly using: Godsauthor@mannricks.net. I also have an Author’s Page on Facebook: M. Ann Ricks Literary Creations.

Are there any words of encouragement for unpublished writers?

Firstly, one must believe in their gift and talent. Rejection is part of the process but persistence is the key. I have learned that what God has started in me, He is obligated to finish and I will be successful. If He has called you to it… He will see you through it!! As an author, your assignment is to write, God will send people for your life. The other aspects; promotion, marketing, notoriety and money will come… Seek ye first the Kingdom, (seek to do God’s will) and everything else will be added!

What question would you love to answer that I didn't ask?

There is one question… People write for so many reasons so the question would be for me to finish this statement:” I became a writer because”… I am a writer because creating and sharing stories of faith, His unconditional and unending love will change lives and provide spiritual revelation thus augmenting the Kingdom of God. I believe this is what God has purposed for my life and I am determined to walk in my purpose!

This is such a wonderful opportunity and I certainly thank you so very for this interview! I feel amazingly BLESSED!!!

About the Author

M. Ann Ricks, a Christian Fiction novelist is the author of Awesome Wonder: The Gift of Remembrance , The Son and THE BLOOD DONE SIGNED MY NAME. She resides in Bear, Delaware and is a graduate of Rider University and formerly a national accounts insurance executive. Using Jesus Christ as her example, as He shared many parables, she creates stories with fictional characters who contend with real life issues and inserts the Word of God to communicate the genuine and unfailing love of God. She is honored to be used by God to spread His message with the stories she creates with the leading of the Holy Spirit, knowing that He will provide her with the stories that will lift up the name of Jesus as He promised that if He is lifted up, He will draw all men to Him. M. Ann is also what one may consider a motivational/inspirational speaker but prefers, “Godspirational” as one may only be truly inspired and transformed when hearing the uncompromised word of God.

About the Book

Are the sins of the father and mother visited upon their sons and daughters? Undoubtedly damaged, Honey Lamb is a descendant of a legacy of molestation, addiction, murder and bad decisions. As long as she could remember, she believed the unhappiness she experienced was bequeathed to her; almost as if her own blood tainted her DNA. Experiencing more than her share of misery, Honey believed she’d overcome her past when she married Mason. Unfortunately, unsettling memories emerge to crack the veneer of her happy existence. Feeling unable to escape what she believed to be her destiny, Honey makes a decision that may have ruined her life. Not realizing God places people in our lives, she embarks upon a journey that will open her heart to a divine inheritance. Will she accept what God has already given or shun the invitation of salvation, allowing her familial legacy to continue? Will she understand that Jesus redeemed us with a spiritual blood transfusion that could change us all?

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: How To Let Go and Let God by Regina Baker

How To Let Go and Let God is a message of personal pain and how the author sought God for the peace only He can promise. Letting go and letting God, means to “cast all your cares” to God. Whether it's a relationship, job, friendship, passing of a loved one, this book will give you suggestions on exactly what you need to do to let go, let God. Are you in an adulterous relationship and need to let go? Did you pray about something and still find yourself worrying about it, even when you thought you let go? Are you wondering how do I let go and let God?

“An awe inspiring book on “How to Let Go and Let God.” Her vulnerability to share personal pain will melt the hearts of every reader. Her genuine understanding that fixes to life’s challenges don’t come without process, will open up the eyes of many. Lastly, Regina demonstrates that by letting go and letting God, we are destined to see His awesome power working on our behalf. “How to Let Go and Let God” is right on time for the days we live in. Individuals, couples and families would do good to read this book.” ~ Pastor Ced Reynolds

If you are surrendering to prayer (having discussions with God) then why are you doubting God? And if you’re doubting what you just prayed, why do it at all? Is it because you’ve been told to pray and it’s just a habit but you don’t really have the faith to believe? Are you willing to go through the process? I believe relief comes based on how you go through the (faith) process, that determines your outcome.

We all at some point in our lives will experience a “Job” moment, maybe not as tragic as his, however, a trial is a trial. It’s at that moment, we must determine whether we choose whether or not to wallow in self pity or seek God for His infinite wisdom and guidance and ultimately, let go.
When we let go (give it over to God), it is only then that will we receive the spiritual guidance we need in order to get past the pain, the unknowing and day in and day out challenges of this world.

Let’s face it, letting go and letting God is not an easy thing to do however, it’s a simple choice. You let go of the things you can’t fix, you let go of the battles that really aren’t yours, you let go of justifying the wrong reason to get selfish gratification.

How To Let Go and Let God, is a message of hope. It describes the pain Baker dealt with and how she got past it. It’s a testimony of God’s grace and mercy, that when we give it all over to Him, He’s faithful to give us the true understanding of what faith really means and how to adapt it in every area of our lives.

“How to Let Go & Let God,” is mind changing. Baker's transparency and willingness to share her story of overcoming trials will bless the masses. If you are wrestling with issues in your life you must purchase this book today. You will not stop reading until you’re finished. And when you’re finished you’ll want more.“ How To Let Go & Let God” should be part of your everyday earthly instructional reading. This book is now part of my Christian reference materials. Thank you for providing simple instructions on truly “Letting Go and Letting God”. ~ Nicole Cleveland
