Writing happy endings is easy. Living one is the hard part.

Georgia Cole—known in Hollywood as the “Holiday Goddess”—has made a name for herself writing heartwarming screenplays chock-full of Christmas clichés, but she has yet to experience the true magic of the season. So, when her eccentric grandmother volunteers her to direct a pageant at Georgia’s hometown community theater, she is less than thrilled. To make matters worse, she’ll be working alongside Weston James, her childhood crush and the one man she has tried desperately to forget.

Now, facing memories of a lonely childhood and the humiliation of her last onstage performance, seven years earlier, Georgia is on the verge of a complete mistletoe meltdown. As Weston attempts to thaw the frozen walls around her heart, Georgia endeavors to let go of her fears and give love a second chance. If she does, will she finally believe that Christmas can be more than a cliché?

Black Self-Genocide: What Black Lives Matter Won't Say cover
Book Review

At last! The best news to come out of Black America in decades. It’s not the police. It’s you! Everyone can participate in the turnaround of the decaying cities of America. The solutions are as close as reawakening the Black American heritage of faith, family, and perseverance against all odds. In Black Self-Genocide: What Black Lives Matter Won’t Say, internationally respected Black pastor and author Bishop Wellington Boone challenges Blacks—and especially Black men—to take responsibility for their behavior, broken families, and unsafe communities. He sensitively portrays the historical reasons for Black self-genocide but tells them that they can change everything if they humble themselves and return to Jesus Christ and the lifestyle of godly men that he has preached and seen succeed for more than 40 years. Then they can return to the days when Black lives mattered to Blacks themselves. This book is filled with historical examples of Black American success stories and presents detailed strategies anchored in the church. The book abounds with affirming Scriptures and prophetic vision for all that Black Americans can become when they return to God and godly leaders become...
