#Fiction Feature: Permanent Resident at the Purse Table, a COTT Feature


“Keisha’s debut novel is a sweet reminder of the redeeming power of love, along with a dose of drama between good friends! Her characters are so relatable because they’re imperfect people who’ve made some serious mistakes—just like the rest of us!”
-Michelle Stimpson,nNational Bestselling Author
About the book:
If you’re size six, you dance. If you’re Ava Alexander, you watch the purses while your girlfriends dance. Each man that passes her by takes a little of her self-esteem. After escaping a mentally abusive relationship, she promises God she will wait on Him to bring her the right man. And she means it—Until Ishmael. When her best friend’s fiancé throws a few compliments her way, she travels down the path of betrayal. Ava’s choice strains her friendship and sends her into a depression.
Ava receives spiritual guidance from Dr. Glory Moses. Through God’s Word, there is a glimpse of hope for a restored friendship, and a newfound love for the woman she is. In addition, a man she meets at the counseling center offers her a glimpse of what could be if she lines up with God’s will for her life.
Will Ava be able to overcome her insecurities and step into the life God plans for her, or will she continue to self-destruct?

Keisha, when is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?

“My next book, Permanent Resident at the Altar, is due out November 2015. It takes a closer look at my main characters’ lives from the first book and how they are moving forward in their newfound situations. There’s drama, laughter, and definitely more chances to learn how to lean on God in every area of their lives.”
