Now a different word... Pink

Pink (Shades of Style)

High fashion meets romance in the Big Apple for a fresh, funky designer
Raya Joseph wants to break free from the beige world around her and celebrate the color of the city. With a sassy pink style and a radical change of hair, she's off to conquer the design world. But it doesn't take long for Raya to meet her match--in style and flair. Flex Dunham, a personal trainer and one of Raya's clients, has got it going on.
As much as Raya would like to pursue a relationship with Flex, she has other matters on her mind--and on her heart. Then a blast from the past comes back to haunt her, and Raya can't help but wonder if she made the right decision in keeping her past a secret. Flex seems to be hiding something too. But what?

I love this book. It is funny, insightful and has a charm that will just make you feel good all over. You can read the first chapter and see if I'm not correct!

I asked Mary a question that I ask every author I highlight on my blog for the Blog Tours.

Gina: Marilynn, while writing this book, what did you learn about yourself and God?

Mary: Wow. Good one. PINK taught me that humility comes before honor and obedience is better than sacrifice. The lesson was more in the publishing process than the content of the book. The manuscript I turned in was significantly different than what went to print and I really had a hard time reconciling some of the changes. In the end, I had to accept that these aren't my books if I truly say I'm writing for the Lord. They're his. And I have to trust people who know what they're doing to do their jobs. Once I accepted that, things went WAY smoother. On the other hand, I also learned that sometimes there are things worth fighting for and that in the end it's your name on the book.

Gina: How has that impacted your life today?

Mary: That experience has helped me to know more of what my needs are as a writer and what is the best fit for my writing voice. It's also reminded me that whatever happens to me is in God's hands, including my books.

Look for this book and Mary's other book Made of Honor at or you can get there through Marilynn Griffith's website from the link on the tile of this post.

Congratulations, Mary! I look forward to more from you!
