Book Description:

Being dead sucks, or so Vincent Asher believes. He’s spent the last two hundred years of his death battling vampires because his boss won’t let him kill demons. Known as a force called the Wraith, Vincent has become bored with preventing the apocalypse. When he hopes his boss will give him a more exciting assignment, he gets the shock of his afterlife. He must protect the woman who killed him.

Bryna Wildrose accidently killed the only man she ever loved. In a self-imposed death sentence, she’s spent the last ten years of her life trying to get herself killed. She never meant to kill Vincent, and the guilt is eating her alive. A vampire gives her a dire warning. The Wraith is coming for her. She can run, or she can let death take her.

Given no choice, Vincent goes back in time to find the one woman he loved more than life itself, but when he expected to torment her for causing his death, he learns nothing is what he believed it to be. Real love never dies, but Vincent’s power might not be enough to keep Bryna alive.

Excerpt-Prologue

Death sucked. Sure, the women were hot and the ability to move back and forth through time to fend off the apocalypse was entertaining, but even the afterlife could become monotonous. Fast times and even faster women had become his stint in existence. True, such things as illness and pesky bullets couldn’t kill him any longer, but Wraith was getting bored. At some point in the last two hundred years he decided his fate had been Hell instead of Time Walker limbo; he’d just been too naïve to know it at the time of his death. Actually, it was probably about the time he’d earned his moniker instead of going by his Earthly name.
He ducked down when a vampire swung at him with a two-by-four. He popped up, caught the board on its second swing, cracked it over his knee, and then stabbed the undead with the sharp end. Why should he have to endure Hell by his lonesome? The vampire burst into a smoky cloud of ash which fell to the alley before it was gently blown away.
Wraith looked at his watch.
New York City, 1939. He pulled his crumpled list out of his pocket and checked where he was supposed to go next. New Orleans, 2085. Great. There was nothing worse than having to go to the largest vampire nest in North America, but they were still boring. He perked up a little. Maybe it wasn’t a vampire this time and he’d get another crack at a demon. Those were always so much more interesting to kill when Felix decided to let him, which wasn’t very often.
He checked his list again and watched as all his assignments vanished one by one.
Shit.
What the hell had he done now to get in trouble? He’d been good for the last decade—well, there had been that one night in a Hestia temple with two virgins, but it hadn’t been his fault. They’d asked him to stay. Besides, that was five years ago. Surely he wasn’t getting into trouble for that.
Headquarters appeared on the page in big glowing letters. He walked down the alley and visualized headquarters, and the imagery around him blurred from dank, garbage-ridden streets to bright white halls lined with gold trim.
Yep.
He was in Hell all right.
He walked down the hall with its never-changing view until a large door out of nowhere swung open.
“Get your ass in here!” Felix bellowed.
“I’m here.”
“You’re late,” he snapped.
Wraith arched a brow at him, but didn’t say anything. Felix was like a bazillion years older than he and could send his ass back to the Bronze Age to deal with babes who didn’t know how to bathe or shave. “Yeah, so sue me. What did I do this time?”
“We found out the point in time that causes the apocalypse. It’s your job to go stop it.”
Wraith sighed. Same old, same old. When was he going to get an exciting assignment? He stuck out his hand for the transparent cellophane-like material Felix handed to him and looked down at the forming image. Two hundred years of annoying monotony drained away as raw rage boiled in his system. “No. I’m not doing the job.”
Felix rolled his eyes. “You’re not supposed to kill her, dumbass. You’re supposed to protect her.”
Wraith glared at his asshole superior. “Like hell I am. Find someone else, or I guess it’s The Apocalypse Meets the Twenty-third Century.”
“It’s this or judgment.”
Wraith started to curse. “You’re kidding me? I have to save that bitch or you’re going to throw my ass in Hell?”
“Yeah, ain’t the afterlife a bitch?” Felix said without sympathy. “Get going. I need you there a day before the main attraction.”
Wraith pulled out his assignment sheet and looked at the time. It was the day before what should have been his twenty-eighth birthday. He’d never had an assignment so close to his death date before. That wasn’t affecting him nearly as much as having to save the life of the woman who killed him.

(www.ofsentimentalvaluenovel.com )

Have you ever found yourself having an epiphany about your destiny? Has the thought ever crossed your mind… you know you are supposed to be doing something great… something that will contribute to man-kind. More importantly, something that will bring much satisfaction to your life. You really want to be content with your present life but you just know something is missing but you can’t quite place your finger on it. When you read a story about someone living their dream, you secretly say to yourself, that is what I should be doing. I have always wanted to write a book but somehow I have not been able to get around to it.

Do all sound familiar? If no, I congratulate you. If yes, you are not alone. Welcome to the club of the “wanna –bes”. I have been there. In fact, if you ask me, I have been the ringleader of the “wanna bes”!

From someone who started out as a Social Worker, then a Registered Nurse, I get it when life takes its toll on us to discourage us; when people around us constantly make us believe we are not capable of achieving; when we convince ourselves we are not worthy of success; when taking care of others disrupt our lives….

What then do we do to push and press through discouragement to achieve our goals? If you are anything like me, who have done everything else, outside of what I know in my heart I was made for~ writing; I get it! My life story~ from the Nursing Boardroom to finally writing a novel which was made into a feature film, Of Sentimental Value, to winning an African Oscar (http://youtu.be/jbo1IxntMvw) & Indiefest (http://youtu.be/gE5jB5mAerM)Film Merit Award …all came at a prize!

Back to you… my friend and comrade.  Having successfully achieved what I had always wanted to do 30 years ago, I believe I am qualified to help you reach your goal.

If you are an homemaker looking to write a novel, welcome to the clan; if you are a second career person like myself, wanting to pen down a love story~ I salute your brevity; if you are in the corporate world and now ready to push to your next level~ welcome aboard this float.  

PRIZES! PRIZES! Did I SAY PRIZES GALORE? Keep reading to find out how you can be a part of this great celebration….

Are you ready? Here we go…

#1 Mistake: YOU HAVE STOPPED INVESTING IN YOURSELF AND IN YOUR DREAM! Many of us have stopped investing in our dreams. Education is key to succeeding and fully understanding your passion. And yes, sometimes, you will have to purchase something or pay to get that knowledge. If you are one of those who are constantly looking to be given handouts, if you are constantly thinking you will not or cannot pay to garner experience from someone who have done what you want to do; then you are doing yourself a grave injustice! Everyone who has been successful at some point has had to pick up a book, attend a seminar, visit an expert to help shape their life goals. You cannot continue to live in a bubble and expect your dream to catch up with you in your bubble. When you take the time to read an interview like you are reading mine now; anytime you choose to deprive yourself of that latte and save up so you can attend a workshop… you are investing in yourself! The knowledge you seek, someone already paid dearly to acquire and you investing in yourself and participating in events like that automatically pushes you to the top 10% of those who will truly be successful. Keep reading….Start by reading. For those who want to write novels, how can you be good at it when you won’t even care to read one?

#2 Mistake: Lack of FOCUS. The #1 killer of dreams is complete lack of focus. Women are built to be able to multitask, thank heavens while men are more of a tunnel vision.  While being able to multitask is a well-needed gift, it can also be a detriment and a crutch for us not to move forward. It doesn’t really matter how big your dream is or how small it may seem, if you do not take the time to map out your plan and then focus in on it, your dream will simply be that… A DREAM!
There is a famous saying: “That the grave yard is full of people who died with their dreams… books that was never written, poetry that was never shared, songs never written, movies never made and businesses never jumpstarted.” You and I have the power to writer our story or better yet re-write them if they have been awful. Remember also that the scars you get from those awful moment are the fabric of your life… they are what will make your stories stand out. Keep reading… Education is a cure to poverty! A poverty stricken mind will never care enough to focus on one thing. Focus on this article right now….

# 3 Mistake: GIVING UP TOO EASILY. I know with this, there are several people with diverse opinions. Some believe that after a while, you just need to quit and do something else. But very few think that regardless of all the “NO” they get, they will keep pushing. Here are examples of those who push through and are alive to tell their tale:

Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen~ The Chicken Soup Series ~ Manuscript was rejected by over 44 publishers but they were resilient; they invested in themselves and pushed forward. If they had quit at # 43 rejection, what would have happened?

Tyler Perry~ He invested his own “little change”, lost a lot of it! Could hardly get anyone to come attend his plays and 8 years into it, his breakthrough happened! The Oprah Factor! If he had quit in year 7, what would have become of him?

Myself~ The Feature film now being made, Of Sentimental Value (www.ofsentimentalvaluemovie.com) is a 30 year journey! Of Sentimental Value’s premise is that One Event Can Change Your Life Forever! You have the power to choose which event in your life would turn things around for you or dig you further into chaos.

You reading this article is an epic event for you~ Change your world, One Event at at a time, regardless of what the Event might be~ It can always thrust you into success, IF YOU CHOOSE TO EMBRACE IT!

Excerpt: Murky Haze

Spiraling through the murky haze is a stream of white smoke; Africa’s humid and gloomy weather punctuated the striking of an African “bata” drum; a sign of impending doom in this Never-never land called Oyo, set majestically in the flat plain fields of West Africa.
Wrapped in ruffled white sheets and face painted with pungent white chalk, distinct tribal marks from Oyo; she chuckles and giggles out loud, sometimes overpowering the African “bata” beats rippling the air. This enigma of a mystery woman’s deep tones carries with it an air of danger and magic. Her fiendish chuckles are exaggerated by her threatening mannerisms. She adds to the mystery in the air by thrusting out her spectacularly painted arms, holding a uniquely designed African clay pot filled with bubbling steaming water. The steam spiraling out of the magical pot is hypnotic. She begins to laugh again as the rhythmic African beat gently fades, instantly replaced by an urgent tick-tock sound, intensifying the anxiety. Seeing my clandestine woman’s animated and daunting striking face, Yemoji becomes boisterous as she squints her overpowering eyes; eyeballs fiercely protruding, eliciting intense fear in those who behold the strange sight.

As the tick-tock sound gets louder, Yemoji abruptly clutches her magical pot to her bosom. Her arms stretch out with purpose, displaying her remarkably long claw-like nails. She beckons me closer. Yemoji welcomes hushes me into undeniably captivating presence, placing one finger to her sultry lips.

          “Sshh! Sshh!”

Suddenly, the tick-tock sound intensifies yet again as Yemoji’s thunderous and wickedly cold laughter reverberates into the atmosphere.
 
          “Did you hear me? I said.... Sshh! Sshh! Siberia! Si-be-ria!”

Wisdom Nugget from Siberia Tonka:


“A person who sows love reaps a harvest of good friends and family. It doesn’t really matter where we come from; we all have something of sentimental value. And this crazy chain of events has led me to my destiny….it has led me to fight for the people I love” ~Siberia

About the Author
Princess Fumi
Stephanie Hancock Ph.D.:

Bestselling Author,  NAFCA African Oscar People’s Choice Winner, Indiefest Films Merit Award Filmmaker, TV Host, Transformation Interventionist and Philanthropist are just a few accolades to describe this dynamic woman.

Born in the heart of Nigeria, Lagos State; Princess Fumi Hancock was raised to appreciate her royal roots from the South Western region of Nigeria, Emure Kingdom, where her family, the Adumori Nigeria Royal Household have ruled since the 1800s’.

After acquiring her first degree in English from one of the most prestigious colleges in Nigeria, Obafemi Awolowo University; she stormed the United States of America with a pen, a script and the dream to change the world. Little did she know that it would take her over thirty years to finally fulfill her dream of becoming a prolific writer and most importantly, one who would have the ability to translate her literary works into movies.

As an author, she has written several inspirational books for women, Beyond Idol Worship: A Diary of an African Warrior Princess; Starting Right Now to name a few! After writing these inspirational books and her return back to African after over 25 years absentia; she reaches out to help her community through her US based nonprofit organization, Adassa Adumori Foundation, Inc. (www.adassafoundation.org); she also decided to venture into the world of young adult fantasy. To her surprise, her very first young adult fantasy, The Adventures of Jewel Cardwell:  Hydra’s Nest became an amazon bestseller! There has been no stopping her since then. 

Her new novel, Of Sentimental Value, a mystery and suspense drama is yet another landmark for her. The book was made into a feature film which is scheduled for release soon (www.ofsentimentalvaluemovie.com ). In the advent of its release, it has garnered multiple award interest. It was nominated in the NAFCA African Oscar Peoples’ Choice category for Favorite Trailer and Original Score while the Princess took home the winning trophy as Favorite Screenwriter.  Since then, the movie itself has been nominated in the following categories: Best Diaspora Drama and Best Make-up. One of our supporting actors, Malik Yoba was also nominated as Actor in Foreign Film category.

Princess Fumi is one who truly believes that dreams do come true if we keep plugging away at it and never give up! Her very first crack at writing, she will never forget her professor at a college in New York telling her, “you need to quit! You are a horrible writer!” “I was devastated,” she said. But did not allow that to keep her down. With time, even the professor finally announced to the post graduate class that she was the best student he’d ever had. That screenplay, “The Royal Bird” ended up winning Best Screenplay of the year in 1988 in a New York festival. It was later auctioned to one of the largest television stations in Africa, Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).  The rest of her time today is spent presenting her new empowerment program, Your Vision Torch, an Innovator’s Prescription to Igniting Your Dreams and Harnessing Your Vision to leaders, business owners and women across Africa and the United States of America.  More details on how to bring her to your event: www.worldoffumihancock.com

 About the Authors

IMOGENE NIX

Imogene is a mother of two, compulsive reader, and bookstore owner. She lives in regional Queensland, Australia with her husband, two daughters, dog, cats, guinea pigs, and chooks. She has a particular fondness for vampires, star ship captains, and things that go bump in the night (especially vampire types).

Imogene has tried many varied roles in her working life including kindergarten assistant, teacher, principal, and kindergarten and child care director, but rates owning a bookstore and writing her own novels as the absolute highlight.

In her mother and wife alter ego, she has traveled widely and lived in some very unique places including Far Western Queensland, Cape York, and even Tasmania. She loves to travel and rates China and Hong Kong among her favorite destinations.





ASHLYNN MONROE

Ashlynn Monroe is a busy working mom. She loves her kids and family. Her greatest joy is creating stories to entertain others, and she hopes they bring a little more romance into the world. She’s been writing since her teens, for her own enjoyment, but decided in her thirties to share her imagination with readers. Ashlynn enjoys biking, camping, reading, video games, and filling her home and life with love. If she’s not working or chasing her children, you can find her daydreaming up her next tale of romance.




JAYE SHIELDS

Jaye Shields is a flight attendant by day and romance author by night. Her addictions include reading, travel, and other activities not even a romance writer will confess to. She’s in a committed love affair with her readers, so don’t be shy!





BETH D. CARTER

Beth likes writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so her heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors, or corporate highrollers. She tries to write characters who aren’t cookie-cutter and pushes herself to write complicated situations that she has no idea how to resolve, forcing herself to think outside the box. She loves writing characters who are real, complex, and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

Beth has been pretty fortunate in life to experience some amazing things. She’s lived in France and traveled throughout Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. She’s a mom to an amazing little boy, and she’s surrounded by friends and family. She hates washing dishes but loves cooking, hates washing clothes but loves wearing them. Her favorite color is red, but she looks best in black (it’s slimming). She hates people who don’t pick up their dog’s crap in public places, people who don’t use turn signals, and people who are rude and condescending. She especially hates discrimination in all and every form. And although she loves holding a book in her hand, she absolutely adores her ereader, whom she’s named Ruby.
