Conyers resident and author Tia McCollors will discuss her new novel, "Friday Night Love," at the Nancy Guinn Library on Thursday July 24 at 6:30 p.m.
In McCollors' latest book, "Friday Night Love," the action begins when a distraught wife kicks her unfaithful husband out of the house. The marriage seems doomed until friends invite the dueling duo to a weekly couples meeting called "Friday Night Love."
They reluctantly agree, and a journey begins. Initially filled with anger, betrayal, and remorse, the plot follows a thread of hope and redemption that McCollors weaves through a maze of crazy circumstances, colorful characters, plot twists and the weekly Friday Night Love meetings.
McCollors said, "I wanted to show not only the painful emotions of a betrayed wife, but also the spark of hope that empowers her to choose to fight for her marriage."
She continued, "Unfortunately, stories of infidelity and divorce are common. But spouses who choose to stand by their unfaithful companions are often criticized, not applauded."
"Friday Night Love" is the first of McCollors' three-book "Days of Grace" series. It's also one of the three new romances Whitaker House Publishers released this spring by popular, award-winning black authors.
McCollors is the popular and highly acclaimed author of a number of fiction books, including her first novel, "A Heart of Devotion," which was an Essence magazine best seller. She followed the popular debut with four more inspirational novels: "Zora's Cry," "The Truth about Love," "The Last Woman Standing," and "Steppin' Into the Good Life." In 2012 she released her first devotional book, "If These Shoes Could Talk: Devotional Messages for a Woman's Daily Walk."
The public is invited to a book signing and discussion of McCollors' books July 24, 6:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Nancy Guinn Library, 864 Green Street, Conyers.
