One For The Books

All day today I had to hold back tears which made my day an exceptionally long one. Many of you who have read The Chronicles of Neffie have been pushing me to reach out to even more schools to have this book considered and discussed. Wow! Do you even know how much that means to me? I don’t think you do. ❤️😢❤️

It always warms my heart to receive comments and direct messages from readers who just finished reading The Chronicles of Neffie. I wish I can share them all. Take this reader for example. This reader didn’t have to leave a comment, but she did and I’m appreciative of it. I’m still touched by the number of readers who are anxiously waiting to see what happens to Neffie in the next novel series. 📖

Since a good number of you are continuing to push for this book to be considered in more schools, I’m going to do my part to try and make that happen. I’m blown away by the support. I really am. Thank you so much! This one is for the books. 🙏🏾❤️🤗😘

Until next time…

Book Contest!

Good Evening Readers, Bibliophiles and Book Reviewers! I sincerely hope that you had a fantastic weekend. As promised, I am going to give five people a chance to win a signed copy of my first novel series The Chronicles of Neffie. It will be publicized next month in Midwest Book Review’s February publication (among a few other honorable mentions that are in the works) and I wanted to share some of my excitement by giving away five free copies!

How to Enter:

Send me an email at with Neffie as the subject and tell me what you like the most about historical fiction novels. Seeing how The Chronicles of Neffie is a historical fiction novel based on my Great, Great Grandmother’s life as a slave, this first novel series is not for the thinned-skinned or faint of heart. Please only email me if you are able to handle a story about slavery, are serious about reading this novel and you are willing post your honest review.

I will accept entries up until Thursday at 8pm CST. I will email the winners Saturday morning and will ship out their signed copies on Monday. Alright, let’s do this!

All the best to everyone!

A.L. Gibson
