Nana Prah's Release Day!!

I have been so excited for this day. Mainly because one of my fellow Black Opal Book Author's and my ardent Book Review Partner, Nana Prah has a big release day TODAY!!!
                                     **Drum Roll Please**
                                         Let me introduce: 

                                
                                       **Smiles and Applause**
I just know Nana is grinning from ear to ear and doing the happy dance!

Excerpt:

She was coming to terms about their past lives, but he was having trouble just dealing with her in this one.

“I must have been a great man in previous life,” Sean said jokingly, but Jasmine’s expression turned serious as she held onto the doorpost. “Are you all right? Are you getting lightheaded?”
“No, I’m fine.”
But he could tell something was bothering her. “Now you’re holding something back from me.”
“Do you believe in past lives?”
 “I haven’t thought about it. I’ve seen so much in my travels around the world that I wouldn’t be surprised if it existed. Do you?”
 “I think it might exist, and the thought about coming back and making your soul better is very appealing. At the same time it could be painful, especially if you hurt someone else in a past life and met them again in another.”
Sean felt a chill go up his spine. He knew there was something more to this conversation, but he couldn’t pin point it. He wanted to stay and talk with her about it, but he had to get back to studying.
He leaned down and kissed her cheek. It was nothing but a friendly kiss, but he felt the shock of it straight down to the soles of his feet. Jasmine looked just as affected as he was.

CC: Nana, please tell us a little about yourself.

NP: I’m a writer. I tagged myself with this label only last year, but it fits me well. Aside from writing I teach nursing and I love it.  One thing I like to mention about myself is that I’m a black belt in the martial arts. If I could make chocolate my best friend without destroying it, I would.

CC: Are you a planner or a pantser?

NP: Pantser for sure. Right now I couldn’t plan a plot if it came up to me and outlined itself.

CC: Where do you get your back story?

NP: In my novel Love Through Time, the heroine, Jasmine, recalls her past lives. As I was writing, the lives just came to me (perhaps I was channeling my own past lives, who knows). 

CC: Do you find the editing and revisions tedious? Or does it make you thrive?

NP: It makes me thrive. I like making things better (all part of being a nurse) and during the editing process I see improvements in my work. It makes me smile.

CC: For such a diversified person, what other goals or accomplishments would you hope to attain in the future?

NP: Being on the New York Times Bestseller is high on my list. I’d like to have my writing sustain me in a better life than I’ve become accustomed to. I’d like to get married soon. If only I could conjure up one of my wonderful heroes and make them real, I’d be all set in that department.

CC: Please tell us about your book, Love Through Time.

NP: I am the worst at this, so I’ll let my awesomely edited blurb do the telling for me:

Defending her family – no problem. Recalling past lives – maybe just a small problem. Taking a chance on love again – well…

Jasmine Gibson has her world turned upside down when she meets gorgeous Sean Taylor. He’s the first man she’s been attracted to since her fiancĂ© dumped her two years ago. But when the disturbing daydreams start, Jasmine begins to fear that her actions in a past life may have finally caught up with her.

Sean finds it impossible to stay away from Jasmine even though he can’t shake the inexplicable feeling of betrayal, simmering deep inside him every time he sees her.

To complicate things, someone is out to hurt Jasmine and every time she and Sean are together, the police have to be called. Even if Jasmine can make Sean trust her, the two of them may not stay alive long enough to enjoy their love this time around.
