But somehow, my possessed brain knows what I need. It's telling me to stick to my choice, to stay away from you, to open a Word document and bleed on paper, try to throw up all my jumbled thoughts in form of words, collect all disconnected facts, try to make sense of it all.'

I’m sure after every relationship you may have wondered “Why am I an ex?” Well, in this novel you may find out why. Meet Adam, a thirty something man who looks back on his dating life with the numerous women he has dated and the outcome of each. Like … There are just some women that a man should not become intimate with. Ericka was a blonde bombshell, 34-24-36, pretty blue eyes, and a soft almost childlike voice. Looking back, I should have known she was a basket case; she was the basket the crazies and nut jobs go into … Having Tanisha in my life made me believe that I could do anything. I wasn't just her boyfriend; I was her number one fan ... That day, my world came crashing down with those words, written in my beloved’s handwriting. After placing the letter down, a song I heard on the radio jogged to the front of my mind, “When a woman is fed up, there’s nothing you can do about it.” I was crushed and alone ...

Cici. B's debut novel, Letters To My Ex, is a collection of letters written to a past love over a three year period of time that was never sent to him---but they are far from your typical love letters. If you are looking for a politically correct story, one with words that float on sugar-coated clouds as the sun sets, this story isn't for you. Heartbroken and confused, Cici. B pours her unfiltered emotions onto the pages. This isn't a "light read" or a "how to guide." It is raw, vulnerable and vivid. These letters tell the story of a woman who gave her all to a man, was broken, her journey of discovery, and self-healing. This novel is for all of the women who have given their everything to the wrong man, because sometimes, just knowing that someone has experienced and survived the same pain as you, can make all the difference in the world.

My Journey to Self-Love is about a girl struggling to find true love. As a small baby, she was adopted into a family that wanted her to feel accepted but had a hard time showing it. Most of her life she experienced sexual and verbal abuse from the people she was supposed to be able to trust. Growing up, it was hard for her to make friends and she dealt with years of being bullied. Most of her life she had searched and wished for someone to love her. So as she grew up, relationships were always unhealthy ones, until she met the love of her life when she was just eighteen. His name was Derrick. She could be her true self around him and he still accepted her. The young girl's parents didn't like him and wouldn't allow them to continue seeing each other which eventually pushed the two apart. This devastated the young girl and pushed her to do things that only caused her more pain. The choices she was making showed no self-respect or that she cared for herself. She felt no one else loved her or felt she deserved to have good people in her life, so she went after the bad ones and she found them. After years of living in emotional pain, she felt there had to be more out there; that she could have a life she had always dreamed of. She turned to God, asking him to take control and let her find true love before she died. God did just that. He brought Derrick back after all of those years of being apart. Derrick showed her that she was beautiful and that she deserved the best in life. Finding him caused her to come to life again. This time, she wasn't going to let anything get in her way.

Letters to Bangkok is a story of love born on the internet between a practising Thai surgeon and an English University marketing manager. The initial Skype conversations and subsequent letters are true and exact records of written exchanges between two people trying to find love. Below is an extract pages 17, 18 and 19 of the actual book. The Skype Connection September–November 2008 ‘Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world,’ the famous throwaway saying in Casablanca brings me immediately to thinking with amazement how I first met sweet Pen. Reflecting on this momentous meeting, well momentous in terms of its life-changing impact on my small world, I often pose myself one question: How is it possible that two people, effectively total strangers, with widely different backgrounds and experiences can begin a conversation through a chance meeting at a moment in a time and place on a social chat forum called Skype and through that conversation set off additional exchanges leading eventually to two hearts beating as one? (See explanation of the term Skype below.) It must be said at the outset that both Pen and I came to the site with reservations and varying degrees of scepticism born from previous failed and disappointing encounters on Skype, where people come and go with regular monotony, like ships in the night or ghosts briefly haunting the ether space but soon to disappear without a trace. It is the nature of the beast called social Internet chatting that you may find someone interesting and then they disappear, never to be seen or heard of again, with no by your leave, refusing to reply to further communications, leaving you saying, ‘Um, it was definitely something I said!!!!’ I had an early impression from what Pen said that she was more experienced on Skype in comparison to me, a relative newcomer. But why did Pen and I come to seek out one another in the first place? I was searching initially for company and solace, as I was suffering in a loveless, rather cruel relationship. Despite my experiences, I have always been an optimist, eternally inquisitive and open minded, a people’s person. Setting aside early negative encounters on social sites, I have been blessed with a strong belief in the goodness of human nature and a belief in destiny. Whether I believed that destiny could be found in such a chance and brief encounter is a moot point. I had just come through a long and difficult marriage which had ended de facto, and although I had not made the break physically from my ex-partner, I had signalled my intention to leave, and in mind and spirit, I had disassociated myself from intimacy or any future plans with this failed relationship. So yes, in one sense, although not consciously acknowledged by myself, I was searching for a human being to fill the emotional chasm left by years of mild mental abuse born of being married to an aggressive and sometimes violent alcoholic. I was seeking someone who might be sensitive, caring, supportive, loving, someone who could be my friend and confidant, someone I could trust with my heart, a lover that would be my love for always, not just temporarily, someone that would be my encourager and someone that would share my dreams and let me share hers, and most importantly, someone that would not betray my emotional trust—a big shopping order, you might say! And in that respect, I had already decided to cast my net wider, beyond the shores of England, and sought an international partner to be my friend. I was already familiar with some of the attractive qualities that an Asian woman might bring to a relationship: loyalty, selflessness, spirituality, a caring, loving, and generous nature, and rarely abusive of alcohol. I was also physically attracted to the Asian look with their dark eyes, sultry looks, and long dark hair. For Pen, Skype perhaps offered, amongst other things, an opportunity to d
