FEBRUARY GIVEAWAY, A Heart to Mend (Autographed)!

Posted in: ,

So Valentine's day is past, I hope everyone had a blast. Like I said before, I received some news last week that added to making it a happy period for me.

1. According to the publishers, A Heart to Mend has been selling very well and they're impressed.

2. Based on demand, I have gotten far in talks with distributors in Nigeria to make the book available across several cities before the end of this month. If you'll like to be involved send me an email myne@mynewhitman.com.

3. The sample chapter of A Heart to Mend on bookbuzzr is among the top ten of the thousands of books uploaded on that site. I have received a widget ribbon and would also become one of their featured authors.

In all these, I know I couldn't have made it without you guys so thank you all so much, I really do appreciate and love you all. But loving is more than talking abi? I reward loyalty so brace yourselves for the FEBRUARY GIVEAWAY. I got the idea from some people who loved the Edward-Gladys proposal and want to have or dreamed of something like that.

  4. my ideal/dream romantic moment... hmmm... Waterfalls? ... chocolate? ... champagne? ... red roses? ... love lingerie? ... passionate sex? ... naaa!

    i'd rather just be lost in the arms of my one true love ... location regardless ... locked in an embrace that says it all ... without words ... *dreamy sigh*

    too simple, innit? the power of a heartfelt hug/embrace can be unbelievable! believe me ... there's just this indescribable and overwhelming sense of connection ... it IS astounding!

    There you have it, my ideal/dream moment is ‘The Embrace’ ... tested, trusted and true...

    Pardon me for my lack that much of experience ... this is the best my fantasies (and reality) could come up with ...

    Tis a sunny day as we prance around @ work
    Emails pave our thoughts as pc’s quack
    Then a text message telling me to pack
    Toothbrush, passport, nothing more than a sack
    Even more im not allowed to ask?

    With the rhythm of my heart going faster
    With my head thirsting for the answers
    I do as I am told
    Then another text
    London heathrow 1900

    I hop in a cab
    Trying to look fab
    Yet calm with a handkerchief to dab
    Arrive at the airport in a splash

    There he is the reason Im here
    All over my face my thoughts are crystal clear
    It was like a movie premiere
    Dressed in a suit tapered with black silk
    Black patent brogues to match
    He definitely turned it up a notch

    Held my hands his finger over my lips gestured that I shush…
    Spun me around and I was blindfolded
    Absolutely dumbfounded
    I was led away till we got off the plane @ GIBRALTAR AIRPORT
    Yes the famous GIBRALTAR
    I thought to myself wow I definitely need this holiday!

    He planted a kiss on my lips as he left me in the taxi
    With wandering eyes I didn’t utter a word
    I was driven to a destination unbeknown to me
    Arrived at Catalan bay
    Where the driver handed me a note
    “Head to Caleta palace hotel”
    Asked the driver for directions
    Upon my arrival I saw the red carpet littered with rose petals
    As I was met by a chariot to be whisked away
    To the rock of Gibraltar as the next note said
    As we halted at the base of the of the rock
    Surrounded by the breathtaking sea

    Once again with his back to me I saw the Gus he said
    “ Take off ur shoes”
    I looked around as he held my hand
    The sunset
    His perfume lingering in the wind
    The comfort of his hands
    He led me as we walked along the pathway
    Till we reached the peak
    I took a sneak look at what lay ahead
    Table tapered with diamonds
    Chair wired with roses
    Traditional lanterns all the way from Nigeria
    Hot-pounded yam with vegetable soup
    Laced with smoked turkey
    Lay on the table

    We ate we drank we kissed and whilst he offered me
    His tongue I felt a chill in my mouth
    I withdrew to ask if he had just being to the tattoo parlour
    For a piercing?
    He ignored me even further
    And beckoned for me to come closer
    To be met by another kiss yet so passionate
    And there it was a metal piece
    The thought of it had me feeble kneed
    The cool air of the sea
    Was all I could feel
    And there it was he knelt
    Said the words and asked me to be his
    And no one else’
    There and then I knew
    I will be his rock
    Stronger and higher than

  17. Barefeet, this is really creative. I saw it on your blog too but I couldn't leave a comment. Well done and your entry is noted.

  18. My ideal romantic moment:

    Sunday evening, 20--. I'm 60, my husband is thereabouts that age too. Children are grown and out of the nest, married or in college. We've had a fun day, one of the children came for lunch with her family after church. The grandkids were fun to have around, and life was just good.
    They've left and as the sun sets, my love and I sit on a swing on our back porch overlooking the lake. We laugh as we remember the antics of the little ones, we smile and rejoice at the success of our children and give ourselves a mental pat on the back for raising them to be good, honest, balanced children. We give thanks to God for all his mercies and for blessing our marriage. We thank him for seeing us through the hard times.
    Then my husband turns to me, his eyes brimming with tears and says, "I'm forever grateful I met you, I'm furthermore grateful I married you and I can't express to you how much I love you and how I'm glad God gave us the opportunity to carve together a life. I will always love you even when you are old and your farts become uncontrollable. I will love you when your teeth and hair are all gone and we can barely see each other over our cataracts. I will love you when your fingers become gnarled and I will sit up with you through painful nights. I will always love and cherish you".

  19. Adenike, that actually brought tears to my eyes though I was smiling at the same time. Simply lovely! Watch out for the poll.

  20. I'm glad you like it Myne .... I hope I win cos I'm too broke to buy the book and I so want to read it LOL

  21. BTW congratulations on the success of the book. It's a dream of mine too.

  22. i am so proud of you girl ...greater things await , for sure!!

  23. Congrats Myne! You deserve all the praise and success. I have to get your book now. Sorry it has taken me so long.

    I will def. let you know what I think when I'm done. I know it melts hearts.
