Love’s Affliction, a novel. Love across racial and cultural boundaries

Canton, Ohio, October 21, 2014 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — From Fidelis O. Mkparu comes a moving debut romance, Love’s Affliction, the story of love across racial and cultural boundaries, when a young Nigerian premed student, Joseph Fafa, falls for Wendy Crane. Coming to North Carolina at seventeen to attend college, Joseph is forced to fight racial prejudice daily while pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. He meets Wendy Crane, whose wealthy father opposes their relationship. It is said that young love rarely reaches its full potential, but Joseph and Wendy are determined to prove everyone wrong. Love’s Affliction captures the weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of a racially-charged small college town?

As Ella EL-Kildani, M.Ed, Educator, Director of Genta Educational and Tutorial ser-vices puts it, Love’s Affliction reveals the “intense passion, ambition, and determination, between two college co-eds from opposite ethnic and social classes” and “the agonizing, yet thrilling journey into a late 70’s multicultural romance.”

Fidelis O. Mkparu is a Harvard-trained cardiologist whose background and experience form the basis of this fictional work. He lives in Canton, Ohio where he is a consultant cardiologist.

White Cottage Publishing Company Announces Release of Cyber Love’s Illusions: Romance Scams… A Virtual Pandemic

M.J Reaves, president and publisher of White Cottage Publishing Company announced the release of their newest title, Cyber Love’s Illusions: Romance Scams… A Virtual Pandemic. Written by co-authors Anna Alden-Tirrill and Jonathan van Helsing, this book outlines how Romance Scam Artists, working for West African and Middle Eastern Crime Syndicates, bilk unsuspecting Westerners out of BILLIONS of dollars every year!

Reaves further explained that this is the first book to make a connection between the West African Scam Syndicates and the Islamic Terror Organizations operating in the Middle East. Reaves further explained that the Syndicates are carrying out an effective economic war against the West under the direction of their financiers in the Middle East.

The book covers how the scam artists develop a romantic relationship with their victims using various ploys to win their trust, setting them up for the scam. Once the love-trust connection is made, the scam artist tricks their victims into sending them money, cashing fraudulent checks and money orders, or receiving and reshipping stolen merchandise, along with other crimes. Reaves explained that some innocent victims have ended up in federal and state prisons because they followed their scammer’s bidding.
