Cover Reveal: Petrified Flowers by Joiya Morrison-Efemini!

I love this cover!!

Anaiah Press

Coming in June!

Tragedy uproots Iris and her sisters, all named after flowers, from the solid ground of middle-class life and plants them, unsupervised, in the rocky terrain of low-income housing. In a world where rain falls only on the privileged,Liam, a student who attends the elite private school directly across the street, proves refreshing as a summer gale, gushing joy into the sisters’ lives. Further nurtured by Ma Moore, a church elder who sprinkles the Flower sisters with spiritual wisdom, Iris embraces her Heavenly Father with steadfast urgency.

But when a student takes a hopeless leap from the school roof, Iris withers under the scorching realization that everything she thought she knew about privilege—and God—lies crippled. Petrified Flowers is the anthem of one African-American girl straddling three worlds. It is a song of hope, a triumph of faith, and a resounding refrain of the Father’s eternal love.

Meet new author, Joiya Morrison-Efemini!

I’m very excited to introduce this new author. I can’t wait for her new book! It looks fabulous!

Anaiah Press

We are thrilled to welcome Joiya Morrison-Efemini and her upcoming book, Petrified Flowers.

  1. Tell us a bit about yourself. Include a couple of facts that not a lot of people know about you.  

I’m a Christian wife, mother, avid reader, and marathoner. I grew up in Vestal, New York. I earned my undergraduate degree at Michigan State University, and my law degree at Emory University. 

I love to watch scary movies and read scary books. Stephen King, especially, terrifies me. But, I can only read or watch bone-chilling books and movies during the day – with all the lights on and sitting on a couch that abuts a wall. 

I’m an animal lover. Growing up I had parakeets, iguanas, rabbits, hermit crabs, and a dog. In college I had a chameleon, a hedgehog and a cat. Now we just have a cat and a dog.
