Book Review: The Path of the Child

Written by, Sojourner McConnell

The author Sojourner McConnell wrote a fantastic story about a girl named Melonie Easton. Throughout the story the author gives you a deeper glimpse into the child’s life. The child was a lonely child, who felt unloved and unwanted. As Melonie got older she began drowning herself into learning new things at school and through reading. As she becomes a teen, her life begins to change in many different ways. She makes a friend and they become close, during a period of new beginnings and tragic loss.

This story is well written and provokes deep emotions that allow you to connect with each of the characters in the story. This author has brought the story and its characters to life in this book. Ms. McConnell has done a fantastic job in making her characters memorable. I actually look forward to reading more books that are written by this author.

Take a moment to read this book yourself, because you won’t be disappointed!

Fantastic book.

Ana’s Stand: Ranked #1 is Christian Fiction


Ana’s Stand Ranked #1 By Kindle In Christian Fiction!

Anas Stand Front Cover

On Wednesday, I was humbled when I learned that Ana’s Stand was ranked #1 in Christian and #1 for young girls/women. I was thrilled that after my publisher, ZitrO Productions held a free books for one day promotion. Other authors in our publication family were also able to Rank #1 in their individual genre. 

I was humbled when I signed on today and my Kindle account stated that I was ranked #66 in Christian Fiction. In addition, I was ranked #82 in African American Fiction. I have not looked tonight, but I know Ana’s courageous story will touch so many hearts. This novel was especially written preteens, teens, young adults, and adults.

I hope Ana will inspire you to take a stand in your own community! I feel blessed to have reached #1, but it never would of happened without my readers who have bought the book. Take a moment to leave an honest review. I still need a STREET TEAM to help with promotions online and offline, so If you interested in helping contact me on Facebook or through this blog.

Book Excerpt

Eva screamed, and everybody in the room went silent.

In an instant, Madden was at her side. “Eva, what is it? What did you see?”

Beyond words, unsure of whether this was reality, and still smelling the stench of decayed flesh, Eva pointed at the window.

“There’s something out there,” warned Swanson, following her gaze.

Before anybody could stop him, Madden leapt to his feet, the force of his movement whipping the air past Eva’s face. Gila tried to shout a warning, but Madden was out of the door and round to the window in moments. He appeared at a distance, as if chasing something or somebody, but then stopped and turned back. Approaching the window he shrugged and mouthed the word ‘Nothing’.

“So two of you saw someone out there?” Madden asked when he re-entered the hall. He knelt next to Eva, holding her hand.

“There was somebody out there, peering in from the side when I heard Eva scream,” Swanson argued. “I stake my reputation on it. Eva, what did you see?”

Sure now that she was safe, Eva said, “Death. Fire. The end of this

place. I saw the Behemoth. It hungers for me.”
