BLOG TOUR: The Fortunate Fall by Olivia Almagro

The Fortunate Fall

Rachel Gibbs closes a major chapter in her life and embarks on a promising new career as Media Liaison and Spokesperson at the Empowerment Agency. Yet, a year after being on the job, Rachel discovers her power-hungry boss and CEO of the agency, Roger Williams, is a total nightmare.

Roger Williams stands tall at the top, destroying the livelihoods of anyone who dares to stand up to him, even sabotaging Rachel’s work at every turn. William’s cruel actions catch up to him, when his neglectful and thieving ways become the focus of an FBI investigation.

Jennifer, a disgraced ex-employee, and her former assistant, Michelle, become embroiled in Williams’ war against the Feds and his enemies.  

Some will do anything to come out on top, while others become unwitting victims in a war they can’t avoid, and a seemingly inscrutable Williams will stop at nothing to ensure his own survival.

The whirlwind of love, friendship, and infidelity complicating each character’s personal life is nothing compared to the inevitable hurricane of danger that threatens to destroy them completely.

Available in paperback and on Kindle!

Happy Release Week 

Commemoration By JJ Winson 

What do you do when your kingdom is under attack? Grandville and Juliette Stubbs have weathered the tumultuous storms that have rocked their world as a result of the shocking and tragic death of their eldest daughter, Jessica and imprisonment of the head of their household. The Commemoration, which is the sequel to the blockbuster novel, The Anniversary, picks up right where the compelling debut novel left off. As Grandville grapples with the complexities of adjusting to his transition home from prison, resuming his relationship with his wife, and dealing with the challenges of fatherhood, he is mindful of preserving his mental health.In The Commemoration, Grandville and Juliette’s love remains solid as they deal with the upcoming anniversary of Jessica’s death. Its lasting impact on their family, the possibility that Juliette’s missing first cousin Melinia may be a victim of human trafficking, and a health threat for one of their children sheds light on a host of secrets threatening the Stubbs’ family sense of synchronicity. Shortly after the onset of this chain of events, Juliette is forced to confront the demons due to her past choices and is sent spiraling into the depths of her own behavioral health battle.The Commemoration is a story chronicling one couple’s fight against tragedy, family secrets, tremendous loss, and a host of tough decisions. During this complex journey, will their trust in God and each other foster the forgiveness and understanding they need or will the secrets of their past cause their kingdom to fall under attack?



What readers are saying!

Few books out there have the ability to make the reader- any reader- question all that they know about society and all that they have been taught from the moment they were old enough to start learning about the world around them. This is one such book. – Jane

Wow, I thought The Anniversary was good, but this one right here is amazing. If you have the opportunity you will not regret it. This has opened my eyes to so many things that’s going on in our world. Great job JJ Winston!!!! – Bev

Wow, what a page a turner. In a very colorful and and vivid manner, the author brilliantly brings awareness to mental health issues, drug addiction, sex trafficking and sickle cell anemia. You feel like you’re watching a movie. As, the author actually brings the characters to life while delivering a very powerful and impactful message. I must admit, it had me on an emotional roller coaster ride wondering what going to happen next. I read this book in one day, it’s an excellent read! – Jeanetta

Make sure to grab book 1..The Anniversary.

Blog Tour: Marisol: A Little Girl With A Big Dream & Adam Baum: The Autistic Engineer (Grow with STEM Series) by LaTanya Brooks

Brooks’ goal is to design books that inspire children, especially at-risk children, to pursue STEM-related careers. Traditionally male oriented, STEM careers are often viewed as careers that are not pursued by women, much less minority women. She also feels it is important to eliminate some of the handicapping implicit biases people unconsciously impose on themselves and others. Brooks continues to promote STEM awareness to create a more diverse STEM community.

“I design books that inspire children,especially at-risk children, to pursue STEM-related careers. I also feel it is important to eliminate some of the handicapping implicit biases people unconsciously impose on themselves and others. I will continue to promote STEM awareness to create a more diverse STEM community.”

I believe that this book will appeal to readers because it is relatable, motivational and encouraging.  STEM is an exciting, hot topic that is essential to 21st century learning. For teachers and parents, there are follow-up questions that assess children’s comprehension and emphasize the importance of an open dialogue between parents or teachers and kids.

Marisol: A Little Girl with a Big Dream

Marisol: A Little Girl with a Big Dream is written to help young children and their parents realize that great possibilities are limitless. LaTanyas goal is to design books that inspire children, especially at-risk children, to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering (STEM related careers). Traditionally male oriented, STEM careers are often viewed as careers that are not pursued by women, much less minority women. She also feels it is important to eliminate some of the handicapping implicit biases people unconsciously impose on themselves and others. LaTanya continues to promote STEM awareness to create a more diverse STEM community.

Blog Tour: Marked: The Beginning of the End by Author Sarah Benjamin (Regina Curry) 

Marked: The Beginning of the End by Author Sarah Benjamin (Regina Curry) 

Check out the press release below from

New Christian Fantasy Novel Inspired by Marvel Cinematic Universe

If you like Marvel Super hero movies, you may want to grab yourself a copy of  Author Regina Curry’s Marked: The Beginning of the End under the pseudonym, Sarah Benjamin. Marked is the first installment of the Marked trilogy – a Christian novel that follows the life of Jonathan Peterson.

Jonathan Peterson believes he’s old enough to make his own choices, but quickly realizes he’s not mature enough to accept the consequences of those choices. When expelled from his prestigious private Christian academy and enrolled in public high school, his true identity is revealed and a supernatural assignment follows. It all begins with a dream that introduces him to a fantastical kingdom, and the forgotten oath taken several years before, at a special altar in his late grandfather’s church.

Marked: The Beginning of the End has been categorized as Christian fantasy in the publishing world – a genre attributed to authors such as C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. “These are not Christian novels at all.”

“My story won’t fit comfortably in any genre,” Regina says. “Marked is the precedent of a new genre, a genre that introduces the remnant of God and their works in the end of the ages,” which according to Regina, is swiftly approaching. MARKED: THE BEGINNING OF THE END is available now at or on Amazon.

ABOUT REGINA CURRY: Regina Curry is an author, producer, and CEO of Pearl Productions, Publishing, and Distribution. The Washingtonian mother of two is a Christian-based author who began her company for herself and other Christian artists to share their work. Through music, novels, television programming, and film, Regina will not only tell her stories but provide avenues for other great stories, as well.
