My novel, The Griot, is finally complete and the feeling is out of this world. Self-publishing was quite the journey, from beginning to end. Each step seemed more impossible to complete than the one before, but it’s finished.
Here’s the synopsis.
“Blacks have never belonged in America,” was Father Malcolm’s mantra. In the year 2014, he created a settlement in Africa’s Serengeti for African Americans. Two hundred years later, the kingdom of Za and the citizens who inhabit it are thriving until one of them is forced into a secret world that will challenge everything she’s ever believed about herself and the kingdom she calls home.
Zen’s life is seemingly perfect. Set to marry the love of her life, she believes all of her dreams are about to come to fruition, but when she’s forced to join the Griothood, a secret society of storytellers, her life takes an abrupt turn.
When Zen learns the truth about herself and the kingdom she so loves, she is handed the responsibility of stopping a treacherous band of rebels before they destroy the kingdom. If she doesn’t stop fighting her calling and learn that no one is who they seem, Za is doomed.
And then there’s the breathtaking prince…
Torn between the life she knew and the stories she hears; Zen is left bewildered. Was her entire life a lie?
With so much at stake, can Zen save her kingdom and all she holds dear?
