    Playin’ With a Boss Synopsis


    Never start a relationship with lies. That’s something Destanee Hart should have followed. After moving from Atlanta, Georgia to West Des Moines, Iowa; she falls for one of the local dope boys. Knowing exactly who Rashad King is, she keeps her true identity a secret. He has a few lies of his own though, and soon everything falls apart.


    Being under gunfire at a local club starts it all. And temporarily taking over for her father puts an even bigger target on Destanee’s back. Without realizing it, she gave her father’s enemies prime opportunity to strike. Then when her best friend gets kidnapped, Destanee’s true past starts to come to light. Nobody knows what they are going to find when they get a lead on Jaidyn’s whereabouts, but Destanee shows them that, without a doubt, they are playing with a boss.

    Catchpenny: Author Sarah Wathen

    in Books

    An artist turned author, Sarah Wathen is a storyteller by trade and a painter at heart. She was trained in Classical Painting at the University of Central Florida, then completed graduate studies in Fine Art at Partons School of Design in New York City. 


    Her first step into the world of independent publishig was as an illustrator, and Sarah quickly realized she wanted to write her own books rather than illustrate others. That reinvention came as no surprise to family and friends, who remember her as a child always ready to turn a tale. Hours spent under the backyard stairs with her sister - dreaming up imaginary friends with outlandish names like Afisha and Pekins, and designing social networks called the Plant Club and The Tutu Group - were recorded and illustrated, too. Copies still exist under lock and key! Sarah currently resides in Florida and runs the indie label, LayerCake Productions.

    Meet author/entrepreneur Maxwell Ivey Jr. Maxwell will be joining me on the Author Chat show to discuss his book, Leading You Out Of The Darkness Into The Light


    About the author:


    I am a 48-year-old  blind gentleman who grew up in a family of carnival owners. All I ever wanted to do was to continue in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and be part of the family business.


    As you can tell by reading this, that isn’t where I ended up. I did help in the business over the years, but couldn’t sustain it after the early death of my father (who had lung cancer). I then turned to helping people sell their amusement equipment. I do that on my other site, The Midway Marketplace.


    About the book:


    Leading You of the Darkness Into the Light is a motivational eBook in which I share the 11 steps of my success as a blind entrepreneur and the lessons I have learned from my journey. It also provides 11 exercises readers to do, complete with email support from the author. It is my sincerest desire to help you succeed in accomplishing a big goal or achieving your dreams! Stop the excuses and get started on your journey today! Throughout it all, I will be with you, guiding you, helping, offering support, and being your friend. This is more than just an eBook, it’s a chance to change your life.
