God's Calling you Again
Mother Eternal Ann Everlastin's Dead
Cruisin' on Desperation
A hilarious collection of stories and spiritual teachings, filled wisdom and hi- jinks, follows Sister Betty, a member of Ain't Nobody Right But Us--All Others Goin' to Hell Church, whose life was forever changed when God called her on the phone in 1984, as she makes it her mission to save her fellow congregants from themselves, which is no easy task. 25,000 first printing
Sister Betty barely has a minute to sit and fan herself before she's off on another "Mission from God." Her friend Mother Eternal Ann Everlastin' has dropped dead on her seventy-first birthday from an overdose of York Peppermint Pattie, and it's up to Sister Betty to see to her final wishes, namely, traveling to a Baltimore religious conference to deliver three one-million dollar checks to three different mega-church pastors.
When the Reverend Knott Enuff Money hears that Sister Betty is about to give away a substantial amount of Mother's riches, he wants in. But finagling the money out of Sister Betty right under the noses of three genuine men of God is going to be the biggest challenge the Reverend has ever faced. . .one that just might set him on the path to reclaiming the true spirit of faith. . .
In this hilarious send-up of church life, the husband-hungry members of the Oh Lawd Why Am I Still Single church group have gathered to complain about the slim pickings in their little town of Pelzer, South Carolina. And newcomer Birdie Tweet may offer just the opportunity they're looking for. . .
Birdie's love life was bleak until she received a phone call from Lyon Lipps, an irresistible Afro-Latino hunk. Unbeknownst to Birdie, he's also a con artist who has seduced countless women. Now he's found Jesus and wants to reconnect with good Sister Tweet. But when Birdie passes around Lyon's photo, which is actually his mug shot, several ladies in the church group recognize him. . .
The ladies devise a plan for revenge that will also improve their chances of meeting men. They're going cruising aboard the aptly named ship, Desperation of the Seas. And they plan to trick Lyon into sailing along with them. Soon, they're riding a wave of bickering, betrayal, and unholy behavior, with plenty of laughs--and a few genuine revelations--along the way. . .
Chyna and her sister, Janelle, are always moments away from a catfight. They love each other, but Janelle has never forgiven her sister for swiping her first love, Cordell. That was ages ago, and now Chyna is showing off as the First Lady of New Hope Assembly, a church caught between the old ways of Holiness and new ways of serving its community. New Hope's leader, Reverend Grayson Young, is also caught--in the infamous Sweet Bush lounge, an establishment well-known for adult pleasures. . .
They've been laid off, they're broke, and their faith is really being tried. But dedicated Mount Kneel Down Baptist Church members Patience Kash and Joy Karry figure now is the perfect time to pursue their other true calling--becoming private detectives. And if that means putting up with their thug-wannabe cousin Porky's delusions while hilariously interfering with their famous detective godson Percy's investigations, it's still a heaven-sent opportunity to hear all the town dirt and find customers.
Mother Sasha Pray Onn and Mother Bea Blister live on the edge--of Christianity, that is. As senior matrons of the Ain't Nobody Saved but Us-All Others Goin' to Hell church, their devotion to the Lord must compete with their secret passions for gambling, long-held grudges, and their jealousy of Sister Betty.
Both Mothers are put to the test when Reverend Bling Moe Bling gives them two tickets to Las Vegas, where they'll be attending the Mothers Board Conference with Sister Betty. As their bickering, gambling and chaos ensues, redemption will be no small miracle in the city of sin.

The financially-struggling members have until Christmas day to pay off millions in debt to The Cheater Brothers' Piece of Savings Bank.
