It's In the Bag!


Calling all beach lovers - by now you've read the blog and received the notice about Sunday's Dusk to Dawn online launch party. I dropped a couple of hints about the prize and even promised a sneak peek. Right after that, my camera conspired against me, and it has taken me this long to get a picture. But I am nothing if not determined, and instead of a few days ago, at 7:18 pm on the day before the party, I finally got it to work. So here it is - the grand prize, la piece de la resistance, the beach bag of all beach bags! But first, some background information.

In the midst of despair, Ayo Montgomery makes a "save her life" decision and seeks refuge and peace on Harbour Island in the Bahamas. For the hours she spent on the pink sand beach, she carried a fully packed beach bag. But for some fortunate party guest, there's be something more than sunscreen and shades. This very special version of Ayo's Beach Bag contains a cream, coral and green striped towel, a copy of From Dusk to Dawn, the matching bookmark, two lovely champagne flutes and a set of "Sun and Sand" tealights. For the winner's listening pleasure, I've included the Dusk to Dawn remix, a soulful musical journey through the story of Ayo and Bilal. You may not know it, but Ayo creates her own line of bath and body products. For apres-beach pampering, enjoy Ayo's Maracas Bay Coconut Cloud, Orange Blossom Balm and Pink Sands Soap.

See you Sunday, April 20th, 6:00 pm est at www.blogtalkradio/ycoleman - you might be the lucky winner!

Dera Williams said...

That bag looks great. I enjoyed the virtual tour chat.

Rhonda McKnight said...

Niambi,

Loved the chat. Intersting conflicts in your book. I look forward to reading it and learning from your characters trials.

Blessings,

Rhonda McKnight (Rhonda Writes)

Gayla said...

Great chat and the bag is really full of great stuff. I'm ordering my book tonight.

donielle said...

great show you guys! I have company but I'm sneaking away to listen. LOL! Can't wait to read Ayo & Bilal's story, Niambi!

Yasmin and Niambi,

GREAT JOB LADIES!!! I'm sorry that I wasn't able to catch the virtual book tour chat LIVE with you on yesterday. I've got a lot going on with my church these days. But I've been listening to the show archive and you ladies were WONDERFUL!

Yasmin, your show launch was a success in spite of the tech glitches that occurred. But then that's technology for you -- LOL!

Niambi, I wish you much success with the promotion of your new book and I will be stopping by to see how your virtual book tour is progressing too.

Take care ladies!!

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hi, Rhonda, and thanks on both counts!

Niambi Brown Davis said...

I got kicked off too, Angelia, even though I used an ancient, land-line phone (lol) Glad you liked the show.

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hey, Linda: You like that bag - you really, really like it (lol)

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hi, Dera: Thanks for coming to the chat and for all your support since the beginning :)

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hi, Rhonda: Yes, Ayo and Bilal face many trials and challenges. If it wasn't written for another movie "Against All Odds" could be the theme song for their own story on the silver screen (with Keith Hamilton Cobb) of course :)

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Thanks for your support Gayla. I'm glad the bag is such a hit!

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hi, Donielle: We must have been pretty good to pull you away from your company (lol) I hope you enjoy the story.

Niambi Brown Davis said...

Hi, Marlive: Thanks for listening and thanks so much for your support and encouragement. I'm finally getting the hang of this thing (lol)
