GENRE: Contemporary Romance

BookCover_BillionaireInHerBed

BLURB:

Real estate mogul Eli Ward needs to keep a low profile on his new project. He’s expecting a fight from the somewhat eclectic folks currently living there. What he doesn’t expect is for that fight to be led by Brooke Worthington, the woman who rocked his world one unforgettable night. The one woman who doesn’t know who he is, which is a good thing. She just sees him as a regular guy. It’s refreshing.

Graphic designer and part-time bartender Brooke Worthington refuses to follow her family’s plan for her. She’s too busy building her artistic career. She doesn’t have time for relationships, either, especially with the super hot Eli, because she has to save the building she lives in with people she thinks of as her real family from some greedy real estate billionaire.

These two have secrets and chemistry that is nothing short of explosive.

BOOK EXCERPT

Brooke cleared her throat for attention. “Okay, people.As exciting as our new addition is, we’re still in the middle of a meeting here.”

“We can deal with the garden later. I want to hear more about Eli.”

An older woman eyed him appraisingly from the sofa. The gray-haired man next to her blew a loud raspberry,but she continued, undeterred.

“I don’t see a ring on your finger. Tell me, young man, do you have a girlfriend?”

“Or a boyfriend?” asked David, the arm around Chris tightening.

“I’m straight,” Eli assured him, then directed his gaze at Brooke. “And single.”

She ignored him and started in on the bean dip.

“Oh, what a pity.” The older woman tsked her disapproval. “A handsome young man like you should have someone to come home to.”

“Get a dog,” the man next to her suggested. “Less expensive than a woman, and they never talk back.”

“Or cook dinner,” said the woman next to him, who Eli had figured out must be his wife. “Or do your laundry. Or…”

“See what I mean about talking back?” Her husband pushed his wire-rimmed glasses up the bridge of his nose.

“Dog’s definitely the way to go.”

“About the garden…” Brooke tried again.

“Is it true, what Chris said?” Charise piped up. “Do you and Eli really know each other?”

“Were you two an item?”

David asked, jumping on the way-too-personal bandwagon.

“Despite what you all seem to think, this is not Melrose Place.”

Brooke adopted a Wonder Woman power pose,hands balled into fists on her hips and feet planted firmly apart. “And I am not sharing the details of my private life at a tenants’ meeting.”

DON’T CALL ME CRAZY! I’M JUST IN LOVE WITH GOD

Author: Swiyyah Woodard

Publisher: Swiyyah Productions, Inc.

Pages: 229

Genre: Inspirational / Motivational / Romance / Christian

BOOK
BLURB:

Because of God, nothing will
stop Anika from marrying the love of her life, not even paranoid schizophrenia.
You don’t want to miss this spiritual journey filled with inspiration and
power.
This book is insightful and perceptive. Inspired by a
true story. Few people consider the God factor in mental health. Join Anika and
journey with her as she receives revelations from God while on her walk to
overcome mental illness and naiveness towards religion. Required reading for
High schools and colleges.

ORDER YOUR COPY:

Amazon| Barnes & Noble

     Anika begins to lose her mind. While continuing to stare at the television
set, Anika sees a vision of Jesus. He appears to her in just as perfect form
and image as the paintings on Mary’s wall. She then hears Jesus speak, “I am
the son of God.” Then just as fast as he appears, he leaves her vision.
     “Did
you see him? Did you see Jesus?” Anika turns and looks at her friends. Words
are stuck within their throats.
     “Did
you see him? Did you see Jesus?” Anika repeats once more.
     “Anika, you’re really scaring us. I thought
you were Muslim?” Mary says.
Anika then feels as if someone was
controlling her thoughts. “Forgive
yourself.”  
She then begins to ramble, “Atoms are
neither created nor destroyed. There was always an existence. You have to take
baby steps to understand how this existence works, where we came from, how it started.
Don’t jump from A to Z. No, you must go from A to C. Take a break. It has been
painted. First there was nothing; it was blackness, pitch blackness. There was
first the black hole. A plumber can understand the black hole. There was a
white light. The creator is positive energy. We all have a little bit of
positive energy. A person of positivity can change your life without saying a
word. We try to increase positive energy which is the same as increasing
spiritually. Once we are of that same positivity as the creator, we become one
with him. Only a few souls have reached this level of existence. The rest of us
are growing spiritually so we can reach that level.“

It appears to Anika that she is making sense as she began to explain
herself, justifying her words.

“Positive times positive equals positive. Negative times positive equals
negative. Therefore, if you have any negativity in you, you cannot become one
with positivity.”

“The creator is all positive energy. Negative times negative equals
positive. If you learn from loads of negativity you will learn from your
mistakes and become all positive. It’s mathematics. Everything stems from
mathematics. Less than a cup of wine is what I need to rest. Don’t want to
scare away this beautiful spirit controlling my thoughts.” While holding the
sides of her head trying to rid her racing thoughts, she runs into the kitchen
and pours herself a cup of wine. She then thinks, “no one will ever have to
go through what I went through again!”
Anika takes a look at her past to see how
in the world she got to this point in her life.

 

Swiyyah Nadirah Woodard was selected as
a Bay News 9 Everyday Hero, which was seen by two million viewers, for
publishing a book and teaching the community about her own battle with mental

illness. She was hospitalized six times and misdiagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
Her first book, Don’t Call Me Crazy! I’m Just in Love, became required
and suggested reading in Reading, Writing, Abnormal Psychology, and General
Psychology classes at a four year Institution.

She was born in the housing projects of Saint Petersburg, FL. Her father left when she was three so
she was raised in a single parent home. At the age of five she was

molested by her eight year old brother. She
later started school, she had slurred speech and didn’t care to make friends so
she was bullied by her peers. At the age of eight, she wanted to kill herself
because a girl wanted to fight her. She looked into the medicine cabinet for
medication. Thank God, she couldn’t find any.

As a teenager she was physically abused by her
step dad. The abuse was so severe, God blocked it from her memory. At the age
of 20 the brother that molested her committed suicide, which was devastating to
her and the entire family. Swiyyah has always viewed herself as normal. She
never received any disciplinary problems in school, made good grades, and
received her BA degree in Psychology from the
University of South Florida.

When the doctors misdiagnosed her with the most
debilitating mental disorder known in mental health, paranoid schizophrenia,
she denied it. She questioned their expertise. She refused to take medication.
She was then hospitalized six times. Her family took a picture of her at her
worst and that’s when she knew she needed help. She has been taking medication
now for ten years without a relapse.

She is now a published author and a National
Inspirational Speaker. Her first book is entitled, “Don’t Call Me Crazy! I’m
just in Love,” and is inspired by her true story. 

She was raised Muslim and the revelations she
received from God and placed in her books, didn’t make any since until she meet
her Christian husband 14 years after her first relapse. 

Please contact Swiyyah to book speaking
engagements, life coaching, author and speaker coaching, radio and TV
interviews, or to purchase her books at 727-495-3217, Swiyyah@swiyyah.com.
