About Running from Solace

“She passed a hard candy over her shoulder as though whatever was in the tiny wrapper was supposed to make it all better. I clutched the peppermint in my hand and buried my face in the hard leather seat while she explained what was going to happen to me. She promised that I’d be safe from then on.”

And so begins the journey of Naomi, whose amazing story picks up where the past and future intersect. As Naomi struggles to hide the ugly physical and emotional reminders of yesterday that insist on haunting her dreams, she crosses paths with a young boy, Xavier and his quick-tempered mother, Mona, who both share an interesting story much like her own.

Running from Solace is an emotional tale which will send you catapulting on a breathless journey beyond breaking points and will finally lead you to believe in the power of accepting what is to be.

About Chasity Rules
When it comes to love—Chasity Hall has rules.

Rule Number One: Never fall in love.
Rule Number Two: Always follow rule number one.
Rule Number Three: Never let a man fall in love with you.

After years of experiencing dead-end relationships, go-getter Chasity Hall has sworn off love for good. However, a happenstance visit up to the forty-eighth floor where she works sends Chasity head over heels in love again, and this time it is with a dazzling corner office suite with a killer view. The only problem for the goal-driven fashionista is that Chasity’s single status is not working in her favor and she believes that an equally ambitious beau will give her the professional image of success she desperately desires. Upon the advice of Pia, her love-addicted best-friend, she hires an intuitive matchmaker who challenges Chasity to search inside her heart to finally discover her real one true love.

About The Truth As I See It: In Poetry & Prose
Nakia R. Laushaul poetically gathers myths and misconceptions about life that threaten to hold the heart captive into her first bound collection, THE TRUTH AS I SEE IT: IN POETRY & PROSE. She expresses her views of The Truth about Me and You, Love, God, and Life in powerful poems that make the truth look painfully simple and prose that tenderly draws you into the world as she sees it. THE TRUTH AS I SEE IT: IN POETRY & PROSE beautifully fuses together and creates light after tackling difficult and often considered, taboo topics. Out of pain and anger comes healing. Out of despair and disappointment comes hope. Out of the darkness of lies shines the truth.
