Accepting Love : Meet The Characters

You may not have heard, but I have published the second book from the Smith Women’s Series on Okada books platform. The first book was, Remembering Love and now, Accepting love is available.

Accepting Love is just a little above 20,000 words but, it took a year to complete it. II started writing it as a prose series on my former blog Then law school happened, I got some other projects and this book almost got thrown under the bus. But, I made a promise I was going to finish it which was why I had to pick it back up.
