The only way for them to find their way through the drama, infidelity, damaged trust, addiction, meaningless sex, and betrayal was to build a solid relationship with God.  When Edward and James hit rock bottom mentally and emotionally, they found out who they were and what the Lord called them to do.  They both began to walk into their purpose realizing that although the storms came one after another, after another and almost took them out; they survived through the grace of God…   

Take this journey with Edward and James and the rest of the Shaw family as they endure the many trials and tribulations of this life.

EXCERPT

Cynthia could not resist that man of hers.  So, she grabbed his hands and stood in front of him.  He pulled her close, embraced her, and placed his forehead upon hers.  He began to pray over him and his wife.

“Dear Lord, hear my pleas.  I lift my heart to you today.  I ask that you give Cynthia and me strength to make the right decisions.  I ask that you show me how to love her through the pain that I have inflicted upon her.  I ask that you open her heart to receive and forgive. I ask that you heal the deep wounds that have been created because of poor choices.  I decree and declare that our marriage will be made whole again. I ask these things in Jesus name. Amen!” Edward prayed.

Cynthia was full of emotions as Edward gently lifted her face and kissed her quivering lips.  The peck quickly turned into something that neither of them thought it would be.

Life Lesson Two:  Ignoring an issue will not make it disappear.  You must become grounded in the word so that you will have the strength to endure the storm.

Q&A With…. 

Tell us about you as a person.
I am a very laidback person.  I don’t hang out much. I work constantly, daily, to improve something in my life.  An unknown fact about me is that when I was in my early twenties I study to be an Emergency Medial Technician.  However, that didn’t work out as you can see.

If you could hang out with one famous person for one day, who would it be and why?
If I could hand out with one famous person for one day, I would hang out with Common.  He is a very dope artist and he is constantly striving to help others. I would love to speak with him about how he creates his art and pick his brain about making a bigger impact on the world through positive and inspirational messages

What’s the story behind your latest book?
What is the meaning of Biblical Proportions?  Biblical Proportions describes situations in our lives that have a substantial impact.  It does not matter if it is a good situation or a bad situation, either way there will be consequences and how you deal with said consequences is very important.  This idea of writing the book Biblical Proportions was dropped in my spirit as I was reading the Bible and recognized that the situations we are dealing with today are already written.  At that moment I recognized that stories needed to be told to: one to bring awareness to how relatable the Bible is; two show the readers how important developing a relationship with the Lord is; and three share an overall message.  Biblical Proportions is a story about twin brothers who are music executives in their family business, the dynamics of this book was inspired by the story of Esau and Jacob from the Bible. James and Edward are polar opposites, but they find themselves in the battle of a lifetime.  These two gentlemen where fighting the consequences of some bad choices and the only way out was to strengthen their faith and surrender to the will of the Lord. They found their strength, peace, and their purpose along the way.

What is your writing process? 
My writing process is very simple.  I am in my bed and have music playing.  I typically listen to music with a message; it can be from any genre.  Once I have the area around me situated, I document my chapters. Meaning, I identify everything I want to happen in chapter before I start to write anything else.  I feel like that allow for the words to just flow effortlessly.

Tell us about your main character: 
Biblical Proportions has two main characters – Edward and James Shaw.  They are twins, who are not close at all. They have always had a rivalry and the split between them grew until it was almost beyond repair.  The brother, individually, found themselves in the fight for their lives after making some bad choices. They both worked hard to develop a relationship with the Lord, who strengthened them to endure the storm.  At the end, they had a stronger faith and walked into their purpose.

If your book was to be turned into a movie, who would play the lead role and why. 
Since they are twins, I would need someone with great diversity, depth, and complexity.  I think there could be a couple of great actors who could do justice to playing Edward and James Shaw; like – Michael Ealy, Lance Gross, Kofi Siriboe.  If I had to choose, then I am going with Michael B. Jordan. He has such depth and range.

What are you working on next? 
I am working on my next book which is titled – There Was Power in the Pain, From the Pit to the Palace.  This is the story of my life.

What advice do you have for other writers who want to get the word out about their book? 
My advice is to be vigilant and consistent.  Get in front of as many people as possible and talk about your book as often as possible.  Constantly tell people why they should read your book.

What is your favorite book on your shelf right now? 
The People Factor by Van Moody.  This book helped me to recognize how important being intentional with your relationship is.  When you are connected to the wrong people, it can be taxing on you. It also helped me realize that people who were once close to you, may need to be moved out of your inner circle.  That was a hard pill to swallow, but making the necessary changes was so worth it.

Do you have any special/extraordinary talents? 
I believe that all talents are special/extraordinary.  It is the impact that makes people feel like others are better than others.

You are given the choice of one super power. What super power would you have and why? 
If I had a super power, I would choose speed.  If I had super speed, I could get more things done in a day.

List 5 things on your bucket list:

  1. Travel around the world
  2. Build a home from plan to finishings
  3. Become a best-selling author
  4. Turn my books into movies or TV series
  5. Work with some amazingly talented people (music, literature, movies/TV)

Cover Reveal – To Know A Killer

About the Book

Title: To Know A Killer

Author: Natalia Hale

Genre: Thriller / Suspense

It takes one to know one still rings true.

For years Luna Lis has been at the forefront of every trend in fashion, deciding what’s in style and what’s out. Cold, calculating, and downright manipulative, Luna fought her way to the top of the tower at the international fashion magazine L&L and is now editor in chief. She’s been written up as one of the most influential women of the world, and nobody is about to knock her off her pedestal. That is until a phone call from a detective makes her realize that there’s more to journalism than what’s hot or not on the runway.

Notorious serial killer Hannah Best has been in jail for over a year, but that hasn’t stopped her from influencing the world. Half a dozen reports have come out with perpetrators claiming they have killed for her. She wasn’t willing to speak out about it, but now she wants a tell-all book written about her life and the real story told. And she knows exactly who she wants to write it.

Luna Lis.

Author Bio

Natalia Hale is a journalism graduate with very little interest in writing news articles of any kind. A reader of the mysterious and morbid, she decided that it was time to start her publishing journey in 2015 with her novella It Takes a Killer. Focusing on short fiction, her stories delve into the disturbing tales that toe the line between acceptable to read in public and “if this is what you think about maybe you should talk to someone” (semi-joking advice from a friend). She is not as dark a person as her writing, but tends to get lost in existential thoughts.

It Takes A Killer, the first book in the series, will be free on Amazon from May 23 to May 25.
