Roda Bids You Farewell…

Posted on Updated on

Happy Friday!  Today is the last day of my blog invasion!  I bet you are ready to have Jay, the amazing author man, back.  With the hustle and bustle of unpacking, I am sure he will forget all about the fact that I have access to his blog.  If that is the case, I will be back in the future, to cause a little mischief, for sure. I promise!

Let’s make sure we send positive energy to Jay,  as he makes his way back to NYC this weekend!


Oh, and don’t forget!  Next week kicks off a very special blog tour for Jay’s latest novel, Father Figure, hosted by Reads & Reels Book Tours, June 4th – 8th.  You won’t want to miss it!

Reads & Reels Book Tours: Father Figure


Between the fast-paced New York City, a rural Mississippi town and a charming Pennsylvania college campus filled with secrets, two young girls learn the consequences of growing up too quickly.

Amalia Graeme, abused by her mother for most of her life, longs to escape her desolate hometown and fall in love. Contemplating her loss of innocence and conflicting feelings between her boyfriend and the dangerous attraction she’s developed for an older man, Amalia faces life-altering tragedies.

Brianna Porter, a sassy, angst-ridden teenager raised in New York City, yearns to find her life’s true purpose, conquer her fear of abandonment, and interpret an intimidating desire for her best friend, Shanelle. Desperate to find the father whom her mother refuses to reveal, Brianna accidentally finds out a shocking truth about her missing parent.

Set in alternating chapters two decades apart, the parallels between their lives and the subsequent collision that is bound to happen is revealed. FATHER FIGURE is an emotional story filled with mystery, romance, and suspense.

    Thank you for filling in for Jay. What’s happened here as well is that you’ve sparked my interest in Bees. Amazing creatures without which out food chain would fail.
