Memoir Writing and Healing: May’s 2nd New Release

I’ve not graced my blog personally since at least the end of February some time. The odd book promo for other authors, or book reviews I’ve done, but nothing personal. I have been in a deep state of grieving the death of my mum, who was just seventy and looked more like fifty! And was so fit, healthy, and strong.

During all this grief I was led, more like pushed by her ( I know it was her) ,to share my story and confirmation of life after death in a memoir. Without spoiling it for anyone who may wish to dive in and read, if you’ve ever doubted or even thought there’s a possibility of life after death I’m here to add to the huge book market of real life accounts in the esoteric genre, and raise my had to say, ‘yep there really is such thing as life after death.’ This is probably the most important thing I’ve ever written. Detailed, well documented, and from the heart. Never again will I doubt if Mum’s guiding me, watching over me, or what happens when we die.

On pre-order now release date the 9th May 2021.

About The Memoir:

“Life after death is no longer a ‘possibility’ for me, it’s a reality. It was proven within seventy-two hours of Mum passing away.”

Is there such a thing as life after death?

If you’ve been looking for confirmation that the soul of a deceased person lives on, this memoir will provide all the proof you need. Experience a life changing story—a loss of a mother who was overseas at the time of her passing, and how she found her way back to her daughter within seventy-two hours of her being pronounced dead, then made her visit from the spirit realm unquestionably known to her daughter here on Earth, in time and space.

What made me write this?

Well, as I mentioned in the book I never once imagined that I ever would write a memoir in my life. But, it was what happened within seventy-two hours of her passing. If I tell you, it will spoil it! But all I can say is that it has been a deeply rewarding, personal, and healing experience for me that I will never forgot. Each time I’ve read over it the experience of contact with the dead, without the use of spiritual mediums initially was really so profound, and special to me. Not only that, I feel that for anyone one who has an interest in life after death, wonders if it’s real, or who is grieving themselves now due to the loss of a loved one during the pandemic, this could really help give them some reassurance, that their loved one is always near.

I do hope that you’re all well, and safe during these challenging times we all continue to face.

Book Review: Why We Should All Be Feminists 4 stars. (Non-fiction/Sociology/Essay)

Book #23 of my #100BooksChallenge, now I genuinely love everything this author writes, she is by far one of my most favourite writers. It has taken me a few years to read this short essay, and after reading it I agree with some points but not all. Reason being because in a bigger context I’m not sure if it would help or hinder people of outside of Nigeria, where she’s from.

About The Book:

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun.

‘I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. And this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently…’

What does “feminism” mean today?

In this personal, eloquently argued essay – adapted from her much-admired Tedx talk of the same name – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now – an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Should we all be feminists? Yes most definitely in the sense that this author is advocating for. She has a good, solid, grip on what feminism is. Rather than this modern day feminism largely based on sexual freedom many younger women are buying into. Also, the author sticks to what feminism is– equality for sexes! So I totally agree. It was women like my mum with her fist in the air fighting for the rights I have today as a woman. I really enjoyed how the author was able to show how lack of feminism in her community in the part of the world she is from, is really damaging. The examples from her own experience were strong.

However what the author suggests that children should be raised pretty much gender-less, it is a good idea in principal. So based on ‘ability’ eg., ability to pay the bills, ability to pay for dinner rather than an expectation that it should always be men. I agree with this, however when I thought about the world at large, and in particular how this could work outside of Nigeria where the author is from, and where she based all of her experience, I wondered if it would help or hinder certain demographics of women. Mainly as we seem to have a problem with women of colour being the backbone of their community, and I feel this needs to change. If children are raised gender-less, what hope does this give to change the fact that at present women of colour are the backbone. How can this change? This is the reality outside of where the author lives and has based her experience. So even though I think the concept is great, based on the ‘problem’ women of colour are facing outside of Nigeria, I feel that it would hinder them, and not much incentive be given for men either. Just my thoughts on it when I applied the theory to what seems to be happening outside of Nigeria. I do understand where the author is coming from with her views though, within the African community generally. It is very different in how women and men operate, that I could understand and appreciate.

Overall, do I agree? Yes, we should all be feminists in the true form, and this should be gender-less men and women aim for equality great points made. Should we raise kids gender-less? I’m 50/50 when I look at what’s going on for women of colour outside of the African community. But I loved reading it! Four stars from me! I would recommend it to anyone who is not clear on feminism, as it’s clear from looking at the ‘movement’ today, there’s a new wave of feminism and I’m not sure it aligns with what it really is. Overall I liked it, good read.

ON THE LAKE

🥀🥰It was late evening as the Lord/Laird and Lady made their way slowly up the lake–in their large Pontoon boat.  The three-quarter moon shun brightly, that evening. He rested upon the ripples of the lake the likes of mischievous adultescent, waiting to sneak out the house. The warm breaths of the night breeze appeared to whisper sweet nothings in the couples ears. Yet, they were no less impactive. Especially, where the Laird’s lady was concerned. Her goosebumps were dancing all over the beauty’s body. It wasn’t nerves…no. It was anticipation. The Lady knew her Lord and Laird, it would only be a matter of timing and coves of the lake. Before the gentleman would make his move, of course.

She sat beside him quietly enjoying the simple pleasure of his arms around…
