What is Born at Dawn About, Anyway?

For all those wondering what my novel is about simply stated Born at Dawn chronicles what happens to the members of the Barclay family after their matriarch, Cynthia Barclay decides she can no longer wait on God for deliverance and disappears. 

If that’s not enough for you here is the official synopsis:

Thirty-four year old Cynthia Barclay knows that marriage is supposed to be for better or for worse. Unfortunately, for the last ten years of her marriage Cynthia has experienced the worst that marriage has to offer at the hands of her abusive husband Marvin Barclay. With the hope of saving herself and her family she turns to the Lord. Expecting to see God manifest himself greatly in her life sooner than later Cynthia is not content just waiting. She wants out.

 Abandoning her hope, her husband, and her two young sons Cynthia boards a bus from New York City to Richmond, Virginia. She begins a new life armed with six thousand dollars on a prepaid credit card, a sketchy plan for success, and a promise to return for her sons. That is until she meets Cheo, a photojournalist with enough connections to take her where she wants to be and forget where she came from.

After six years in Richmond Cynthia’s dark past resurfaces. At the risk of losing it all—her past and her present Cynthia returns home to right her wrongs. Has Cynthia chosen the right time to return home or is it too late for God to restore everything she has broken?

Cover Reveal Party and Reading for Born at Dawn

I am so excited and pleased to announce that I will be having a cover reveal and reading party in April. 

Why? I’m no celebrity, right so why go through the extremes, because this is my first book and I want to celebrate the book and glorify God. Two, I want to introduce myself to my readers and supporters my way not after the book has come out and I’m dying for a sale. 

Now the question is would you like to attend? I’m sure you have a question for me as well–“why should I attend?”

You should attend because you’ll have opportunity to hear me read excerpts from Born at Dawn, ask me questions, pre-order Born at Dawn, and you will be among the first to see the cover of Born at Dawn.

Customized phone case for Born at Dawn. Attendees of my cover reveal party will have the chance to win one.
