As some of you may know by now, Robin is Ana of Polygamy 411. Robin is my real name. When envious, hateful people first put my real name out there in cyberspace, it disturbed me. Little did I know that it would benefit me in a huge way. We never know what Allah has decreed for us. Sometimes we think something is bad when it is actually good.
When others revealed my name, I removed from the blog the story of a few characters whom I had depicted. I then closed the blog for renovations. When I reopened it as an all new Polygamy 411 blog and support group, I wrote that I would probably write a novel about the characters that I had portrayed on the older version of the blog. Well, I have done it. All praise is due to Allah.
Robin is Ana of Polygamy 411, and I have written a contemporary fiction novel about the same characters
The title of my novel that I’ve written is, “The Silent Tears of Polygamy”>Based on a True Story of an American Female Living in the US. I had said that I have a surprise for you. It is the surprise. Insha Allah, “Kindle” will release “The Silent Tears of Polygamy” on or about June 27, 2016, as an e-book. The paperback will be ready at Amazon around that time, as well. You will be able to buy it from other distributing websites soon. I still have my work cut out for me in promoting it.
To show my appreciation for all the wonderful people who have commented on this blog, who have supported me and helped make this blog the success that it is, I will give the book to them for free. It will be either as an e-book or a PDF for download. I know some of you have already read the story when it was on the blog. I need you to make sure you are using a valid email address when you write here, if you’d like to receive a copy.
So, there you have it. Robin is Ana of Polygamy 411
I would like to thank my husband; my Islamic family; and my biological family for their tremendous support during the last six months that I tirelessly slaved away most days and nights, writing and rewriting, “The Silent Tears of Polygamy.” Writing a book is no joke. It was hard work for someone like me who had never written a book before. Now, I’m an author. I thank my loved ones for hanging in there with me. I thank them for listening to me talk about the novel endlessly. If I was driving myself crazy with writing the book, I’m sure it was a test of my loved ones’ patience and tolerance, as well.
Once more, I thank all the writers here, and I thank the silent readers as well for all their support. I thank Allah for bringing us all together. Most of all, I thank Allah for bringing it all to fruition.
