Virtual Book Tour: SEASONED with GRACE by NIGERIA LOCKLEY



Are you ready for a dose of Grace? She’s a beauty and the beast, which one will prevail in her life?



Sentenced to probation, thirty-year-old, supermodel Grace King must put her plans of transitioning into acting to extend the longevity of her career on hold. Desperate to keep a close eye on Grace and his job Grace’s ambitious lawyer, Ethan Summerville has her complete community service in the last place Grace wants to be. His church.
Instead of God, Grace finds a “chocolate drop” of a man—Brother Horace Green. However, Horace isn’t looking for a supermodel. He wants his woman saved and sanctified, but Grace has never met a man who has been able to resist her. Will Horace compromise his faith for a taste of fortune, fame, and Grace?
While Grace focuses on the pursuit of passion Ethan finds one director willing to take a risk and cast Grace in his debut film, but this role fits Grace all too well. Will this film revive Grace’s relationship with God and her career or bring her closer to destruction?

Excerpt (Exclusive):
Grace stared at the gold knobs on the doors of Mount Carmel Community Church. She turned her back and took three steps toward the curb. She was supposed to report to church on Tuesday, the day after the sentencing. It was now mild, fog-filled Thursday, and she still wasn’t ready to walk through the doors of Mount Carmel.
 You have to go in. Go in, or go to jail. She weighed her options. “I can handle the chains. I can handle the jumpsuit. I don’t know if I can handle twenty-four hours of women,” she said aloud.
Slowly, she walked back to the doors, then turned around again and leaned against them. “I can’t do this. I’m just going to call Ethan. . . . I can’t disappoint him, but . . . ,” she murmured.
“But now is the acceptable time for salvation,” a woman said to her through a crack in the door.
“What?”
“The Lord led you here for a reason.”
“Yeah,” Grace said smugly, nodding her head. “He led me here to do community service, not to be indoctrinated.”
“Are you . . . ?” The woman gasped deeply. “No. You’re not!”
Grace turned around to face the woman completely. She raised her oversize sunglasses, giving her a full glimpse of her face.
“Grace King. Come in, come in,” the woman said, quickly opening the door to the church.
Grace stepped into the vestibule of Mount Carmel Community Church and gave the woman who had greeted her a blank stare.
“I’m Sister Connie Bryce. I’ll be your tour guide for the day. I’m sure Brother Ethan filled you in on all the various ministries we have. Which one do you think you'd like to take part in?”
With a turned-up nose, Grace replied, “Lady, how many times do I have to tell you that I’m just here to do my time?”
“Where the spirit is, there is liberty. We’ll help you find just the right ministry for you to participate in so that you can grow.”
Grace cocked her head to the side and wondered if Sister Bryce had heard a single word she’d said. Either she was so high on the Holy Ghost, she could completely disregard Grace’s noxious attitude or all the material she had on was affecting her hearing. Her ankle-length plaid skirt and her peach-colored, short-sleeved turtleneck reminded Grace of yet another reason why conversion was not on her to-do list. It’s so unfashionable.

Talking Fashion with Nigeria Lockley:
Seasoned with Grace delves into some very dark and difficult issues, but the fashion in this book helped me stay balanced. I love fashion (my budget, however does not). One of my essentials are solid or printed dresses. Dresses are great all in one and multipurpose pieces that transition from day to night and paired with the right pumps will stop traffic. My staples are white t-shirts and chambray (denim shirts) you can pair them with anything and once you add a bold statement necklace you can go from the mall to dinner without changing clothes. What are some of your fashion staples and favorites? I want to know. Post them in the comments and it may appear on my blog.
