On Being Married
by Angelia Vernon Menchan
For years I have been asked to write about marriage. I guess in large part because I have been married more forty years and I love my husband and my marriage. I am also prone to sharing snippets on social media about marriage.
However, I did not become truly convinced I had anything to say  until I sat in a room with several women who bared their hearts to me and listened as I shared mine and that made me realize my marriage was part of my ministry…
Before we jumped the broom, I knew we often get what we allow. I made it clear at the gate that no one was disrespecting or beating me. There were myriad other things we discussed like infidelity, talking about our business with others, especially family members and even borrowing money. I felt borrowing money from people, especially parents gave them too much leverage in your business. Unless it was life or death, no borrowing. We had to own ourselves and if we were grown enough to marry we were grown enough to BE married. It has served us well.

Meredith Wild's Hacker Series & Bridge Series Giveaway!

Hello, my page turners and bookends! A few weeks ago, I entered a mega giveaway that Meredith Wild, New York Times Bestseller and author of  the wildly popular Hacker Series, was hosting. Out of over 14,000 who entered, I was one of the 300 chosen winners. Imagine how excited I was to get the email that lil' ole me  had been chosen as winner. Now imagine that excitement a hundred times over when I actually opened the door to see my postman delivering boxes of books! The Hacker Series  has a total of four books. I won ten of each. I also won ten copies of book one to her Bridge Series. So after I took my cut (LOL), I'm now left with nine books of each story from the Hacker Series and nine copies of book one from the Bridge Series. So because Meredith was generous to me, I'm going to return the favor. I won't ask you to jump through hurdles win these books either. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly select winners. I'll also

Naughtier Than Nice: A Review

This is another stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon.   Next up, Naughtier Than Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey . I should note that this book is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. As a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Naughtier Than Nice. Man, whew. I've waited so long for EJD to get back to this style of writing. Now don't get me wrong I love Gideon and  the chick from A Wanted Woman, but I longed for the day EJD would get back to the Cheaters and Liar's Game style of writing. Once I read One Night earlier this year, I knew I was going to get Naughtier Than Nice. First off, let me say it did my heart some good to get an

Coming soon: Tell Me No More

“He’s getting married!” “What?” “Jamie… he’s getting married,” I repeated frantically. There was a wild look of panic in my eyes, I was sure. My whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. Nothing prepared me for the news that the man I still loved was about to walk down the aisle and make another woman his wife. Kay had to catch me in her arms before my legs gave out on me. For four years I’d been trying to come to grips with the fact that I’d let a good man get away. Jamie and I had been together for almost two years before I’d cheated on him with my son’s father’s best friend. I’d met Jamie while I was head over heels in love with Aric. Even after finding out Aric was married, I held on to hope that he and I could be together. That was until his wife, Stephanie, tried to kill me and my son while I was pregnant with him. Even then, it took a while for me to see that Aric and I just weren’t meant to be together. I finally saw that Jamie was the man I
