This novel is a spin off of The Shade of Devotion. So many people were asking for a sequel, that I felt compelled to give my readers another glimpse into the lives of the characters from The Shade of Devotion.
Thus, in my novel, Brains Not Included, you can revisit the characters that you fell in love with: Nisay, with his easy going charm and mysteriously brooding demeanor; Yasmin, with her explorative views on love, and even Kaleb, with his innocent charm and sagacious words. However, the characters are now much older and some would argue wiser.
However, there has been a new edition to this dramatic clan: Zipporah Chandra Jo, who happens to be the protagonist of this fiery love story. We follow her through the dramatic opening in chapter one, to the wilds of a tribal village on the coast of Africa and home again to her disapproving and somewhat dysfunctional family.
Through sadness, tragedy, love, and laughter-- this novel will keep you on your toes and loving every minute. If you enjoyed The Shade of Devotion, you will also love Brains Not Included! Be sure to purchase your copy from Amazon, Kindle, Goodreads, Nook, and local bookstores such as Barns and Noble and Books A Million. Also, don't forget to leave a review. Your opinions and thoughts matter!
