He has always been a talented writer of short stories throughout elementary school and never received any grade less than an A in all English classes taken throughout his academic career. "It's just something that I have always trained my mind and fingers to do, so I decided to incorporate it into a skill. Most people think that I am just an indie author. But I am a book publisher, who happens to write as well. We are an intimate publisher who works with first time authors to customize all of their projects with a step by step process. We hold the author's hand from pricing all of the way to cover design and distribution costs. Not only are we the least expensive, but the quality is second to none." When he is not writing he loves to do bodybuilding and play with his kids on the weekends while his wife spoils him with tailgate food. Some of his inspirations come from Richard Wright, W.E.B. DuBois, and James Baldwin.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed the book, just did not like the way it ended.

Lots of typos and grammatical errors, the plot was too scattered, the story took too long to develop.

Great book, easy to read, it held my attention and interest through out.

Format: Paperback
HOW DID I GET HERE? by Ahmad Williams is a story of 25 year-old
Preston Brown. He is happily married (or so it seems) to Delight and has
two kids. While his wife attends college once a week, Preston is
enrolled in seminary school and is doing well. Preston works two jobs
and his only complaint about his wife, Delight, is that she nags him too
much and makes him feel like less of a man because of the way she talks
to him.

Preston is tired of the constant nagging and feels like Delight should
be doing and contributing more. He feels as if her only going to school
one day a week, taking care of the kids and keeping a clean house is not
good enough. While out with his brother at a club one night he meets a
woman that he can not seem to get out of his mind. Against his better
judgment he gets involved with this woman, lying from the beginning
about his marital status. When he is about to call it quits, he is in
for a rude awakening.

HOW DID I GET HERE? by Ahmad Williams was a short tale that was full
of contradictions. Like in the very beginning of the story, his
"concious" makes the statement that Preston is a genius, by completing
67 credit hours in one school year. It is basically an equivalent of two school
years of a full-time load? Then in the beginning it says that Preston is
happily married but he is anything but happy. Then at one point, Preston
is working a part-time job, the next he has two jobs. Then at another,
the 'money is rolling in" but he is going to advance loan companies and
they are receiving food stamps. HOW DID I GET HERE? was a very confusing
read because there were so many contradictions.

The book was good and the plot was interesting, although you could predict what was going to happen. I like the twist of Preston being a minister and in the military, which was interesting. One major issue with this book was the horrible typos and grammatical errors throughout the book. I found myself cringing every time I turned the page, because I knew that there would be many errors. I read the book through my Kindle, so it could have been a issue with transcribing the book for the Kindle...but I doubt it. I hope the author seeks out a good editor for his next novel.

In my opinion, one star is generous! I was very disappointed in this book. By it being listed in the same category of other books written by Christian authors it gave you the impression that it was similar in content; however, it is everything but and disgraces Christianity. The story line was predictable and at the end I did not desire to know what happened next; I was glad it was over and that the bleeding had stopped. This is a definite must NOT read!!

I paid 99 cents for this book and I want a refund! I am an avid reader and this book could have been written by my middle school student. Actually, if it had been written by my middle schooler, there would have been less grammatical errors!!

The author writes in Incomplete sentences. The switches from first person to third don't add to the story. I found that rather distracting. Repetitious dialogue. Story line was very weak. Dialogue was unrealistic. Very disappointing.

This book felt like the writer rushed it. Not much of a story, then it leaves off "to be continued." Guess who won't continue onto the next.

I would have enjoyed this book sooooo much more without the typing and grammar errors. Who ever proofread this book prior to publishing should not get paid!!! The story line is actually good and it shows how easy it is for men like Preston Brown to get caught up in affairs.
Im also reading the sequel and already within the first 10 pages, I've noticed typos and grammar errors. NOTE TO AUTHOR: PROOFREAD YOUR OWN MATERIAL OR GET A BETTER PROOFREADER TO PREVENT THE MANY ERRORS!!!

I'm not sure how I feel about this story. It was beyond simple, the grammatical errors were numerous and the storyline was weak. Where in the world did those names come from? For these to be Christians, their ethics and morals were horrible. She wanted to be the head of the household, dictating what her husband did. They never once attended church, but he was on the verge of being ordained. People work full time and attend school all the time. When did Preston study the word, where were the other pastors that should have been ministering to him?
