Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a two-week book tour and Amazon gift card giveaway for What Do You Do When Your Faith is Unsure? My Journey of Singleness to Intimacy by Dr. Debra Moore Ignont. The book tour will run Dec 5-16, 2022.

ISBN: 978-1-958207-30-7

Genre: Christian Memoir

Book Release Date: September 1, 2022



Dr. Ignont is passionate about ministry and has served in various capacities for many years; be it as a youth department administrator, singles ministry leader, choir member, or interceding for others on the altar.

A Bay Area native, Dr. Ingot graduated from Bishop O’Dowd High School and studied at University of Phoenix earning a Bachelor of Science in Business with an emphasis on Small Business Entrepreneurship. Additionally, Dr. Ingot was recently bestowed with an honorary Doctorate of Divinity from the God School of Ministry.

Dr. Ignont is married to George Ignont and the stepmother to 4 adults and step-grandmother to 6 grandchildren, while also assisting in the care of her 85-year-old mother.

She currently serves at the Well Christian Community in Livermore, CA where she has completed a 2-year ministerial course and is currently enrolled in their School of Worship. When not serving in ministry, she is the CEO of D. Moore Consulting, Inc., a labor, and contract compliance consulting firm.



We’ve all had moments in our lives when our faith is being challenged. Perhaps you’re trusting and believing God for something and the manifestation of it feels like it’s a lifetime away. This transforming story of triumph, victory, and God's relentless grace is not without setbacks and disappointments. Author, Dr. Debra Ignont takes us on a self-revealing journey as she uncovers the underlying reasons of low self-esteem and rejection that has plagued her faith for decades. Debra helps readers connect by sharing her non-public journey of broken relationships, but also her journey to redemption and freedom. A beautiful aspect of this book is that it reminds readers of the extraordinary path we each must take to reach our own promised land.


The negative body image and height insecurities were planted in my adolescent years. I was always teased because of my weight and height. It began in my Junior High years and continued into my adulthood. I was tall and really skinny until my sophomore year in High School (I will explain this transformation in a later chapter). I was also somewhat shy. The kids would call me all kinds of names such as bean pole, skinny Minnie, skyscraper, etc. But to come home and have my dad comment on my weight would send me over the edge.

However, my intent in giving my number to him, I believe, was so I could hear him validate me some more. This was where the insecurities that are never addressed will get you trapped in some mess. Needless to say, I don’t believe he intended to ever give me rides to school, but instead give me rides emotionally and physically after school, if you know what I mean.

Crazy how the enemy can have your moral compass all screwed up. Although I ended things,

he wanted to keep them going. The only righteous thing to do was to walk away, and I did just that. In my warped sense of accomplishment, I was sure God was pleased by my walking away and I didn’t think about how I disappointed God yet again by committing adultery.

Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a two-week book tour and $25.00 Amazon Gift Card for The Birthday Gift: Book 1 by Betty Collier. The book tour will run August 15-26, 2022.


ISBN: 978-1638718451


Genre: inspirational Christian fiction


Betty Collier describes herself as a nurse by profession, author by passion, and storyteller by the grace of God. She is a 5x bestselling, 4x award-winning inspirational Christian author. She writes with a purpose, and that is to bring honor and glory to God.


Her first book series, "Living Inside the Testimony" is a collection of inspirational nonfiction stories. Betty showcases her gift of storytelling by engulfing her readers from the very beginning and captivating their attention throughout the emotional journeys.


In her second book series, "The Birthday Gift", Betty displays her creative storytelling in a surprisingly extraordinary way with her fictional work. She continues to inspire while lifting the words right off the pages to bring her characters to life. Readers will find themselves hoping for the best and dreaming about the characters as if they were members of their own family.


Betty also co-authored 2 anthologies with visionary author, Paulette Harper. Both are Amazon #1 bestsellers, "For Such a Time as This" and "The Breaking Point." They feature incredible and inspirational stories from 20 different men and women from all across America.


Betty’s fictional work in The Birthday Gift Book Series is included in the John 3:16 Global Placement Mission as commissioned by founder, Terry Gurley. She uses her talent to introduce readers to the greatest gift ever given to mankind. While taking them on intriguing tales of heartbreak and hope, Betty intricately weaves together stories leaving readers in suspense until the very end. What they have in common is they all beautifully deliver the gospel message found in John 3:16.


On a personal note, Betty has been married since 1986 to William Collier, the absolute love of her life, after first meeting him in middle school. They are the proud parents of two sons and a daughter-in-love, all of whom reside in Shelby County, TN.

An unexpected knock on the door derails a birthday celebration as Mrs. Williams recalls the mysterious events that prevented her beloved husband from flying back home with their daughter's priceless, life-changing gift he discovered at a flea market in the Middle East. In the opening scene, she learns in a most dramatic fashion that the absolute love of her life was murdered while in route to Los Angeles. Her faith and fortitude are unimaginably tested, but Mrs. Williams ultimately realizes that she possesses the greatest gift inside of her.


This Book Excellence Award-Winning Book is an exceptionally thought-provoking and intriguing tale that takes the reader on an emotional journey of profound heartbreak to surprising hope for the future. Although a catastrophic loss occurs, one comes away with a great sense of hopefulness in this increasingly violent world. The author intricately weaves this story together leaving readers in suspense until the very end. Be uplifted and inspired as you discover your own faith while experiencing the gift of a lifetime so cleverly embedded within the pages of this book.


Why do you write the kind of books you do? I describe myself as a nurse by profession, author by passion, and storyteller by the grace of God. It’s that third element that guides all of my decisions regarding what to write. Only by the grace of God have I become a storyteller, thus all of my work centers around bringing honor and glory to Him. God leads; I write. 


What is your current work in progress? I am working on Dear John, which is the sequel to The Birthday Gift: Book 1. When I first wrote The Birthday Gift, I thought it would be the one and only time I ever ventured out into the inspirational Christian fiction genre. However, I soon discovered there were many more stories to tell as I unknowingly set the stage in the first book for several continuations. The end result is now a 5-book series. Dear John is the second in this series and picks up where The Birthday Gift left off. What will surprise most readers is the fact that John, who is the antagonist and abhorrent murderer in Book 1 becomes a misconstrued character who will tug at your heartstrings in Book 2.


What three things about you would surprise readers? 

a.     I never wanted to become an author.

b.     I’m an introvert suffering from imposter syndrome. 

c.     I told my future husband I love him for the first time when I was 14 years old. We’ve been married for 36 years now. 


Tell us about The Birthday Gift: Book 1 – a brief blurb: This Book Excellence Award-Winning Book is an exceptionally thought-provoking and intriguing tale that takes the reader on an emotional journey of profound heartbreak to surprising hope for the future. Although a catastrophic loss occurs, one comes away with a great sense of hopefulness in this increasingly violent world. 


Is there one particular message or “moral of the story” you hope readers walk away with? After reading The Birthday Gift: Book 1, I hope readers will gain a newfound sense of hope. The book teaches readers some of life’s most important lessons including how to forgive, how to deal with heartbreak and trauma, and how to find inner strength during life’s most troubling times.

#VIRTUALBOOKTOUR #FRIDAYFINDS #NONFICTION #CHRISTIANBOOK The In Word: Two Letters That Will Change Your Life by Cynthia Robinson #BLOGTOUR


Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a one-month book tour and $20.00 Amazon Gift Card for The In Word: Two Letters That Will Change Your Life by Cynthia Robinson. The book tour will run July 5-29, 2022.
ISBN: 978-0578952932
Genre: Nonfiction, Christianity, Inspiration



Cynthia Robinson is a 6-time published Author, Life Coach, Motivational Speaker, and Pastor. She believes that every woman has a purpose and whether that is to be the best mother and wife or a CEO of a Fortune 500 company they deserve respect in their positions in life. 
As an author has written several books to empower and inspire the women of God to reach for their best life amid bad circumstance. As a coach, she believes in the building up a woman to move forward in their journey and learning to enjoy the process. She is a motivational speaker that ignite the people to go for theirs. Pastor Cynthia is a loving and compassionate soul that knows rebelling against God only brings you to him humble. 
She speaks to the hearts of men and women alike through her daily motivational messages on her social media pages and her blog entitled “My Crazy is Real,” which is on her website She works to change the mindset of women around the world to walk in the royalty they have called you in to by God.



As Christians it is somehow implied that once we are saved, we have all the skills for living a kingdom life on earth. There somehow a switch that flips on and we are downloaded with the faith to make it through all the storms. We will instantly trust God with our lives even though we were taught to not trust anybody. We are somehow just going to love God unconditionally when most of us were not loved and don’t have a clue how to receive love without conditions. We must learn the new life and way of living IN God. When we come to Jesus Christ as born-again servants of the Lord, we are not told that we need more that a service mindset with God to make into heaven. Our relationship with God can be broken down into three parts just like the Tabernacle of old. Either you are having a relationship (outer court), or you with God (The Holy) or you are in relationship with God (The Holy of Holiness). Now all are good to experience but faith, trust and love can only be when we are IN a relationship with God.
Cynthia Robinson takes you through the 3 stages of growth in God it is Have, With and IN. She explains the how’s, what’s, when’s, and who’s with familiar biblical characters and principles. Cynthia has included her own experiences waking in complete darkness right in the church.” I never know faith, love and trust in God would be like this but when you open yourself to his grace and mercy the True God can show up for you”. 



The “IN” word is a simple yet complex book on being “IN” a relationship with God. We cannot just be a Christian or a religious person. At the point of adoption into the family of God, everything in our lives change. We are no longer on the outside looking in. No more just being Gentiles or Jews. Not sinners doomed to hell for eternity. The confession of your mouth that Jesus Christ came to die for your sins and that His resurrection confirmed eternal life with the Godhead, we are now heirs with Christ. 


With that being said, to be “IN” means we have something we must do. We are to be “IN” relationship with God. Now, I know some of you are saying, “I’m already in a relationship with God. I pray daily, I read my bible and I go to church. I sing in the choir, I minister to the young/the elderly, and I do other ministry work. I give to the poor and I do missions work out of the country. I pay tithes and offerings.” “My relationship with God is fine. Is it, really?” Everything mentioned are works for the Kingdom. It’s good, but what about the “IN” God part? Merriam-Webster defines the word “IN” as, used in a function to indicate inclusion, location, or position within limits.

After reading this definition, what type of relationship do you have with the Godhead? Are you “Having” a relationship or “With” God “IN” a relationship or are you “In” relationship with God? 
Let’s see… 

Guest Post- Ten List “Name ten things you have in your purse right now

1.     Loose coins- I always have loose change in my purse. Before it was because I was going through tolls. Since moving to Florida, I don’t need it as much. 
2.     My masks -I haven’t given it up yet. The counts in Florida are going up again and I have had Covid, and I don’t want it again.
3.     Candy – I got that from my mother. She always had either Mentos or candy in her purse, so I do the same thing. Also, I’m a grandma enough said.
4.     Medicine – I have medicine for a headache, I have meds for a tummy ache. I have my meds that I must take daily. I don’t like to be sick, so I keep myself well stocked.
5.     Wallet – My wallet is my second purse. I need to have a smaller bag so when I just need to run into a store and get a few things all I need is my wallet. I mean that is where the money is really.
6.     Badge for my job- I must wear it. It’s better than some of the others I had to wear. The ones with the pins on back of them. I hate those.
7.     Baton – I have a baton to protect myself. In the hospitality industry everyone that comes into the building is not looking just to sleep and I must make sure I make it home.
8.     Receipts from me shopping – I love to shop, and I just get the receipt and keep it moving. Sometimes they stay in my purse for months.
9.     Comb and brush – My hair sometimes needs to be combed and/or brush throughout the day. 
10.  Phone – Who doesn’t have their phone in the purse. That is my minicomputer. I don’t think I could go a day without it. But because I have lost it I know I can.

The Breaking Point is Endorsed by Les Brown

Have you ever arrived at a place in life where you knew you were created for more, and you were hungry for more? You knew you possessed greatness, but the life you’d been living didn’t mirror the life you desired or even deserved? These authors, who share their stories in The Breaking Point, wanted more in life. Yes, they were broken, afraid and flawed, but decided to believe in themselves. They wanted to live in their full purpose and potential, and did what was required to obtain it. With strong conviction and passion, they made the necessary turns and adjustments because they wanted more from life. This book will inspire you to bet on yourself and push forward, despite what you face, knowing that you have what it takes to steer the course of your life in the direction you deserve. 

 Les Brown Speaker, Author, Trainer


The Breaking Point is stories by men and women on how they came to that turning point and were able to over- come adversity and reach their own personal break- through in life. Each story will encompass their unique struggle of how they overcame the challenges to find that you had the courage, the power, and the resolve to build your life again. This book will serve as a potent reminder that everyone has the power to choose which direction they want for their own lives.

These twenty women and men, some first-time authors, said yes to the transformation; yes to the stretching; yes to going back to those dark places that brought them pain. Because they knew what they experienced wasn’t just for them, but it was for others who will come behind them needing those words to pull them up and help them move to a place of wholeness. These authors are writing from a place of victory, a place where they are no longer the victim.




My mind was all over the place; life as I knew it was about to change. Not wanting to move. Not knowing what to do next. Getting up meant moving. I did not want to talk to anyone. Talking meant explaining, answering questions. 

That is not who I am. Sometimes you have to reconcile some things within yourself before you can communicate with others. Just because you are comfortable with a situation does not mean that is where you belong. It can sometimes mean you are settling. 

Why should I settle? Newness brings anxiety. I wondered why I had these feelings, because I had detached long before he spoke those words. One thing for sure, I knew moving forward I had to find my strength and my worth.

10 Fun things about Carolyn

#Virtualbooktour Naked & Not Ashamed #newbookrelease #transformational #devotion Chanelle Coleman


Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a one-month book tour and book giveaway for Naked & Not Ashamed: The Transformational Devotional Experience by Chanelle Coleman. The book tour will run May 2- 27, 2022. 

 ISBN: 979-8985407600

Genre: Spiritual



Chanelle Coleman Wesley is a native of Milwaukee Wisconsin. She is the creative powerhouse of CeCi’s Ink, an innovative storytelling company that conveys stories through poetry, books, playwrights, blogs, fashion, and motivational speaking. Chanelle is significantly inspired by her late mother’s, Brenda J. Coleman, penchant for prolific storytelling and developing a strong sense of faith. As a survivor of abuse, Wesley believes in passing on the communication skills she developed to cope in those environments. She is also an accomplished playwright with her latest project, a gospel stage play entitled The Beautiful Truth About an Ugly Lie to be released soon. She strives to empower individuals who have lost their ability to advocate for themselves by challenging them to recognize the power of their voice. Her greatest accomplishment, however, forever remains becoming a mother to her six beautiful children and “GiGi” to her two adorable grandchildren.


Naked & Not Ashamed is a transparent conversation between Sisters. One that allows both the writer and reader to expose themselves without fear or sense of condemnation. It’s a journey towards healing that allows us to dialogue without masks, charades, or pretense. We explore familiar stories of women in the Bible. These powerful narratives of trial, triumph, failures, and flaws show the resiliency, redemptive and transformative power of encountering Christ. I also reveal personal experiences of my own Christian walk with all its ups, downs, twists, and turns. But the most amazing part of these chronicles is you! Right now, you are writing your story. Are you living with pain, grief, and regret that needs to be released? This book is designed to help you see your own undeniably powerful narrative. I want to challenge you to see the hand of God in your life and urge you to find the ability to tell your story. We accomplish this through journal prompts, activities, prayer, etc.

Tony instantly began screaming and yelling. I continued to bite down harder. I continued biting and grinding my teeth until I couldn’t bite anymore. I let go. He fell back onto the bed. I jumped up out of the bed, my heart was pounding, terrified I opened the door, and I was met with darkness. Hurriedly I ran out past the dining room, through the hallway to the kitchen. Panicked, I reached the back door. I began pulling on the door, but it was locked. Fear seized me as I began fumbling with the knob trying to unlock the door. The latch finally twisted up and I raced up the back-hallway stairs. At last, there was light. I ran as fast as I could through the open kitchen door. The light continued to welcome me as I forged ahead running through the hallway past the bathroom and my aunt’s and grandparent’s bedrooms, the dining-room and into the living room to the couch where my grandmother was sitting. I distinctly remember her shocked expression as I pounded towards her as she sat there speechless, on the couch holding my baby brother. I felt relieved and a sense of security momentarily came over me until my grandmother spoke. She stared at me, with her mouth opened in shock. She screamed, “Chanelle, you’re naked! Where are your clothes?” Momentarily, I had forgotten that I was naked, but the awful realization of my nakedness began to cover me like a garment. It was the evidence of my pain, humiliation, and fear. I stood there breathlessly as I gasped, painting for air, naked and ashamed, I told her my story. 

10 Things I’ve learned since becoming an author 

  1. Before you begin to write, know your target audience. Who is this book intended for? Are you helping them solve a problem? What aid can you give them? This will help you in the writing and marketing process. 
  2. Don’t wait till your book is published to begin talking about it. Start sharing information about it at its conception, the moment you decide to write, and continue until the idea of your book becomes a reality.This way your readers will have the chance to accompany you on the journey. They will feel invested in your book. 
  3. Begin building relationships and networking with authors. If you truly want to become an author then you must begin to put yourself into the same environment as your counterparts. Seek to establish genuine connections with authors who write in the same genre, share an identical target audience and have a similar size following on social media platforms as you. You may be able to develop opportunities where you can share each other's platforms, cross promote, co-author a book together, etc. 
  4. Begin identifying seven streams of income you will gain from the book. It could be anything including but not limited to workbooks, journals, merchandise, courses, workshops, speaking engagements, audiobooks/ebooks/ or the book is translated into other languages etc.
  5. Join groups and begin to give value to these communities. By the time your book is published and you announce the launch date, you will have acquired an audience that you have established a very important marketing principle with know, like and trust.
  6. Begin developing your email list immediately. Start a blog or vlog. Use it to create an interest in joining your list. This list will become extremely valuable to you as you begin to market your book. 
  7. Be intentional about getting reviews. Reviews are extremely important to writers because they are important to readers. It provides a first-hand account of what the experience of reading your book was like. Readers pay close attention to the sentiments expressed by fellow readers. 
  8.  Use a sales funnel. Create a lead magnet that will allow you to establish, know, like and trust within your target audience. Your freebie should give an enormous amount of value. Strive to exceed expectations for your freebie. The freebie should allow you to add the consumer to your mailing list and lead them to want to purchase the bigger ticket item that compliments the book this may be a one-on-one mastermind call, enrollment into a paid group, a course, workshop, training etc. By adding the person to your email list, you can convert the contact into a brand consumer later.
  9. Seek opportunities to write guest posts on blogs. This will introduce you and your book to potential connections. 
  10. You're writing a book. Shout it from the rooftops! Get comfortable with talking about your book. When the book is released, you'll appear to be a pro.
