Unveiling Joy: A Special Announcement

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

I'm thrilled to announce that Joy Comes: A Book of Self Love made its proud debut right in my hometown of Greensboro, NC, at Next Chapter Bookstore and Gift-shop on July 15, 2023. Readers and critics alike are introduced to a character that I lovingly brought to life named Lamar in this heartwarming picture book. Together with his supporting cast, he remind us that joy can shine through even in life's toughest moments.

When Jeanice McCord, Digital Marketing Manager at IngramSpark, asked me about my upcoming plans as an author, I couldn't keep it a secret any longer. I shared with her the exciting news that Lamar and his friends are making a comeback in time for the holiday season. I kept the title under wraps, but you can catch the replay of our conversation by going here.

And now, the big reveal, The Christmas Lesson: Unwrapping Love and Family will arrive in stores near you just in time for the holiday season. This enchanting children's story draws inspiration from my own cherished childhood memories, serving as a timeless reminder that the most treasured gifts reside in our hearts forever, especially amid the falling snow and twinkling lights.

Please be sure to secure your copy of Joy Comes before "The Christmas Lesson" release to get to know the charming cast of characters awaiting you. You can grab personally autographed copies from Next Chapter Bookstore and Gift-shop

Oh, and while we’re on the topic, do you put your Christmas tree up before or after Thanksgiving?
