Literature And Fiction: Rod of the Wicked - (Church Boyz Book 1).
Publication Date: April 6, 2012
Imagine sharing the spotlight with a ruthless blackmailer, whose only intention, is to take all of which you’ve worked hard to achieve – your wealth, your fame, and your church of seven thousand members. For Pastor Leroy Paxton of Mount Moriah Baptist Church, this is no imagination. Five years ago, he committed a toxic sin and almost lost his life trying to cover it up. He now comes face to face with his past, which haunts him from the pulpit to his bedroom. And the only way out of this nightmare is to make a decision that could cost him everything.
Then imagine being mentored by one of the most revered men, Abraham Winder, whose stance on accountability and sexual purity is taught rigorously within the Mount Moriah mentoring program, only to discover your mentor is not what you expect. This is the reality for Dominic Housten, one of Abraham’s closet and trusted protégés, who accidentally stumbles upon a scene that left him frozen in disbelief. As Dominic struggles with betrayal, he confides in the pastor’s daughter – the only woman he’d secretly loved for years. The only problem with that is the pastor’s daughter is married to Phillip Benjamin, a deacon of the church and an extremely jealous man, who suspects Dominic’s intention runs deeper than just a casual friendship.
The intertwined lives of these four men show that the righteous are not perfect, and at times, are tempted to forsake the ways of God. As each of these men battle to regain their focus, they will come to realize that the consequences of their sins are far greater than they’d anticipated – just one stupid mistake could produce a lifetime of hell! Bestseller in Urban Christian Suspense Series.

One of the first objectives that a successful author must conquer is finding, knowing, and writing for his/her audience. H.H. Fowler has mastered his craft. When I read his Amazon Author Page, I noticed he constantly remains in Top 100 of Amazon's Religious & Spirituality Authors. And, his books are #1 or in the top 10 of his genres: Christian Urban Fiction in either Protestant-Pentecostal(Charismatic/Non-Denominational) or African American. I wondered how he managed to do all three. Then I read his free Kindle book, Part I of "Church Boyz." And I knew why & how. He writes for his audience, with a genuine heartfelt conviction, equivalent to his writing talent.
The "Church Boyz I" storyline was first of all entertaining & realistic. Yet, I loved it because it was not so realistic that it was just a sermon. The scenes contained just enough 'over the top' elements, to prevent it from becoming another sermon disguised as a novel. But each scene was written with a spiritual conviction & concern, that a lesson was found within. I applaud this author for having the courage to stick with his conviction and write it-- as a novel that both teaches and entertains.
The language is hip, urban, and youthful-- but not profane. As an older person in the age 55+ category, I appreciated his ability to write his genre in urban language, that was also clean and easily understood by someone my age. I am genuinely impressed with this author, and feel that he is a bright star on the horizon of his genre: Urban Christian Fiction. He has a broad cross over appeal, and I think his conviction to both teach and entertain will keep him where he is now: At the top of his game. I look forward to reading all of his books, and purchased "Church Boyz Book 2", right after I finished reading the free Kindle Book 1 of his series.
