This is going to be my last post for 2011 and before I wrapped it up for the year, I thought of updating you on what’s been going on with Lara Daniels, especially this last week.
First, Afrikan goddess listed Love at Dawn as one of the top 10 reads for 2011!
I wrote my third update on “Thorns with Roses” and even got some very good feedback from the editor that he’s been getting emails from readers wondering when the next story will be out – yay!
Finally signed off the contract for publication rights “For Wale, my first love” to the little league publishing under the anthology titled “New beginings” to be released in 2012.
Discovered through a friend that Love at Dawn was actually a bestseller on i-Tunes UK top 100. Looking foward to it staying on the charts again and for much longer 🙂
And you know what? I honesly couldn’t have done all this if I didn’t have a loving God who continues to see me through, combining a day job with family and writing…talk about hectic! I also couldn’t have done it without all the wonderful people who come here to read my stories; people who take their time to comment on these posts and send encouraging emails as well.
So I’m going to use this opportunity to say Thank you. You know who you all are. Thank you for making 2011 a fruitful year in my writing career. Looking foward to more good things in 2012 and hoping that you’ll join me in the journey as well.
From my heart to yours, have a merry Christmas and a lovely 2012 ahead. Praying that all your happy dreams come true.

The day after Thanksgiving Day was quite fun. In the US, we call it Black Friday, a day where you ‘shop till you drop’ because everything is hugely discounted, and when I say huge discounts, I mean mega humongous discounts where you can get discounts from heavily priced TVs to a pair of knee- length sexy boots for as much as 90% off its regular price. Since one of my favorite words is “Discount”, I dragged my Lover, his wallet and our three kids along with me to go on my black Friday trip. It was a busy day, but it was worth it especially when I got home to chat with Pamela, the host and presenter of Pamela Stitch, an online magazine that seeks to revolutionize the way Africa, the continent is viewed by Africans and the rest of the world. We talked a lot about my second book, Love at Dawn and my upcoming works. To get details on our chat, you may click right HERE.
