Written by Okisha Jackson, ‘A Successful Failure: Against All Odds’ and ‘A Successful Failure: The Betrayal’ follow protagonist Shauna through her struggles and embracement of committing to God.

Killeen, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2014 -- While embracing God and his word can have dramatic effects on a person’s like, making the transition is less than easy. In a powerful and gripping new series of books, this bold journey is displayed with vivid aplomb in an attempt to empower all readers.
‘A Successful Failure’ currently has two volumes – ‘Against All Odds’ and ‘The Betrayal’. Each book follows the life of Shauna, a soldier who is about to embark on the biggest undertaking of her life.
‘Against All Odds’ - Shauna Jackson is an Army soldier stationed in Darmstadt, Germany. She struggles with fully committing to God, which leads her into trouble. Dangerous situations are up ahead in ways she could never imagine. God gives her supernatural warnings. The choice is hers to finally stop running and surrender completely, before it’s too late.
‘The Betrayal’ - This novel is a continuation from the first book of the A Successful Failure trilogy. In this edition, Shauna Jackson is a sergeant in the Army stationed in Fort Irwin, California. She strives for developments of her divine gift of prophesy and a warrant officer position in the military; however, an attractive young fox has captivated her. Standing at the borderline of her promised inheritance, a test of true love for God arises.
“While these stories are ultimately works of fiction, they do take their cue from events and experiences in my own life,” says Jackson, who also served in the United States Army.
Continuing, “I’ve lived both with and without God. I now want to bring God’s love to as many people as possible. The best way for me to do this to share the ups and downs of my own life; I think it will become abundantly clear that it’s always best to have the Redeemer on your side.”
Since its release, the series has garnered a string of rave reviews.
For example, commenting on ‘Against All Odds’, Mrs. T.W. writes, “This book captivated the essence of God and His miraculous wonders. It deals with the many obstacles, fears, and heartaches we endure, but still if we trust God we can overcome. True testament of faith. Great read.”
Tabitha Sanders was equally as impressed with ‘The Betrayal’, adding, “After reading the first book I had to know what would happen next for her. I enjoyed that like the first book this one dealt with real consequences of being out of the will of God. Too many times we get the sugar coated versions, but this book was not one of them.”
Both books are available now, from Amazon: http://amzn.to/1fGXNn4. For more information, visit the author’s official website: http://www.asuccessfulfailure.com.
