BLOG TOUR: Stitching Love (Book 1) by Tiss Devane




Skyla Richards is a planner.  But, all the forethought and organization on the planet can’t prepare her for the events that are about to alter her world.   After her six year marriage ends bitterly, her job becomes her refuge until Jonathan Bass enters her life. He’s a young, handsome co-worker whose future includes an Ivy League opportunity and his upcoming nuptials to an unstable fiancĂ©e, Mia. But that doesn’t stop him from recruiting Skyla to help him sew a few wild oats before the clock winds down on his bachelorhood.

His relentless pursuit has her tossing her to-do lists into the fiery flames of passion and reacquaints her with feelings she’d long since forgotten.  And her feminine wiles has him rethinking his engagement and ultimately, taking a ring off of it. But while their hearts continue to align, their careers split into opposite paths when she gets promoted and his Princeton plans are jeopardized when his manager accuses him of dark and menacing acts. With Skyla’s assistance, he rebounds and the two resume their future plans. But while they’ve been ring shopping and deciding wedding dates, Mia has been sulking and contemplating the fastest way to bring their relationship to a shattering demise. And what she comes up with permanently transforms all their lives.

Excerpt:
I was engaged to be married in six months, eleven days and five and a half hours. Yet, here she was in my arms with those haunting black opals looking up at me. Truthfully, I’d fantasized about this moment, but this wasn’t exactly how I envisioned it. Still, I didn’t care. This was an experience I’d longed to have with her, even if I’d gotten it by default during an emotional meltdown.

We’d shot the morning breeze at the coffee machine and at different office functions, but I honestly struggled to ignore her beauty every time I saw her. But now, in this moment, I could allow my eyes to travel the smoothness of her honey colored skin against the back drop of her shoulder length hair and explore the curvature of her breast and hips until our chemistry naturally united and formed an undeniable bond. Then, the door swung open.
“What the hell is going on in here?”



Get to know Tiss:
 

I have been a freelance writer for over a decade and have written and published various online relationship articles as well as material for the print publication Being Single magazine.  This experience along with my occasional after hour stumble upon hiked up skirts and dangling belted trousers in my many years as an Office Manager has given me a unique and humorous insight into the widely seductive world of romance, particularly in the office. My other literary works range from political commentary to poetry. I’m also the owner of an online Zazzle store, Mahoganygear.com, (http://www.zazzle.com/mahoganygear), which sells everyday items bearing inspirational messages.

My debut fictional novel in a series entitled, Altered, is told from both Skyla Richard’s and Jonathan Bass’ perspectives and is a passionate tale of the evolution of their relationship and the many casualties who dare to get in the path of their heat.

Why write urban romance?

I write urban romance because love is something everyone wants. Regardless of race or class, we all go through the same things in terms of relationships. I write about these experiences with a hood spin and unique way of viewing them through urban eyes.

When did you first start writing?

I first started writing when I was very young and my old school grandmother gave me a diary to keep me busy. I have three older brothers and grandma didn’t believe in girls playing with all boys, all the time. So, she would make me go to my room, which was boring and lonely until my diary came alive with stories.

What makes a good story to you?

What makes a good story to me is when it involves real life situations that include romance, a little mystery, a little tragedy and lots of sex and laughs.

Why did you choose the dual male/female narration format?

I chose this format because I think it answers that age old question women have which is, What the hell was he thinking? Jonathan lets you know exactly what he’s thinking and why.

How did you come up with the book title?

I came up with this particular title because sometimes building a relationship can be like constructing a garment. You have to bind the two people together, cut out certain behaviors, trim the excess baggage, iron out issues, etc..

Out of all the genres you write in, which one do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy writing fiction the most, poetry second. The other literary forms are fact driven, whereas fiction and poetry are emotion and imagination driven for me, making them more challenging.

What do you want people to walk away with after reading your novels?

I want them to feel as if they’ve been entertained on multiple levels.

BOOK OF THE DAY: Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina by Misty Copeland



In this instant New York Times bestseller, Misty Copeland makes history as the only African American soloist dancing with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. But when she first placed her hands on the barre at an after-school community center, no one expected the undersized, anxious thirteen-year-old to become a groundbreaking ballerina.
When she discovered ballet, Misty was living in a shabby motel room, struggling with her five siblings for a place to sleep on the floor. A true prodigy, she was dancing en pointe within three months of taking her first dance class and performing professionally in just over a year: a feat unheard of for any classical dancer. But when Misty became caught between the control and comfort she found in the world of ballet and the harsh realities of her own life (culminating in a highly publicized custody battle), she had to choose to embrace both her identity and her dreams, and find the courage to be one of a kind.
Life in Motion is an insider’s look at the cutthroat world of professional ballet, as well as a moving story of passion and grace for anyone who has dared to dream of a different life.

Virtual Book Tour: The Michelangelo Effect:


Introducing The Michelangelo Effect...

What do the elegant theories of Nicholas Bohr, Wallis Simpson's improbable love life and a duvet cover that does not get tangled up with socks in a washing machine, teach us about how our brains work?

Is there something linking Europe's 'discovery' of snow on the Kilimanjaro, Romania's rebellious youth, and the quest for perfect white teeth? And finally, what can Isaac Newton's colossal financial blunder teach us about the science of failure and success and how could we use this knowledge to solve our own personal problems?

Your current thinking is failing you...

WE ARE BEING ROBBED of our authentic lives and don't even know who the robbers are. The author outs the THREE horsemen of personal apocalypse; MIS-Education, MIS-Information and, the absolute worst, MIS-Direction. The three mind viruses that have and have contributed to an epidemic of jadedness, helplessness and despair.

If you've ever wondered why...

*dating and relationship advisors are so fixated on 'make-overs' (your online profile, your wardrobe, your face, your conversation skills)?

*prosperity gurus are so bent on you 'fixing' yourself?

*some of the most beautiful people never find love and many of the most intelligent ones never make good money?

*people with disadvantages identical to yours are so hugely successful?

*and finally, why 'idiots' do so well?

...you need to read this book.

The answer, is hidden in plain sight


With unparalleled clarity the book reveals the single common denominator behind the new wave of personal success stories that is sweeping across the globe. Slum millionaires, uneducated patent princesses, third world Forbes shortlists, village entrepreneurs and activists with a global impact, billionaire composers (who cannot read music)...'unattractive' folk finding amazing life-partners, people who previously lacked confidence finding, meeting and keeping friends...these people do not seem to be at the mercy of employers, clients, market forces, looks, economic meltdowns, politicians, house prices or interest rates, personal or global history, geographic location, age, weight, [fill in your personal challenge], whatever. They are clueless about motivational workshops and all self-help staples, have never heard of The Law of Attraction, never paid for a wealth creation seminar, and don't bother to look any different what they always have. They are from all backgrounds and every 'demographic,' with every known disadvantage bafflingly represented.


About The Author

Nekesa Ouma-Namulu describes herself as a 'true citizen of the world,' having the privilege of calling many places home. She was born and brought up in Nairobi, the capital of that picturesque nation on Africa's eastern coast, and moved to London where marriage and career made Europe her second home for almost two decades. Her career as a Computer Networking Systems consultant, which included a year with Cisco Systems, saw her spend many happy hours in data centres all over the world, fiddling with fibre-optic cables plugged to huge data switches alight with dozens of different blinking lights. Work saw her set up camp in Mexico City, Seoul and most recently Paris, which led her to conclude, "no-one does a strike quite so thoroughly as the French." Nekesa has published a computing book, which sits happily next to others in UK libraries, as well as a children's fable. Today, Nekesa and her family split time between homes in Kenya, Spain and the UK.
