Out Now: The Runaway


December 29, 2016 by Dayo Benson

Season’s Greetings 🙂

Hope you had a good Christmas. Mine has been lovely. My dad turned 60 on Christmas Eve so we had a surprise party for him yesterday. He was so overwhelmed. It was lovely to see the surprise on his face when he walked into the room and saw everyone including friends who’d travelled in from London and other parts of the country.

Anyway, the festivities are over for me now. It’s back to work 🙂

The Runaway has finally been released. Junior’s story is out guys. Get your copy at:

Amazon UK, Amazon US, B&NiBooks, Smashwords.

Kobo shuts down for the holidays, but the book should be available on there soon.

From the Back Cover

How do you keep a new faith when your own brother would kill you if he ever found out?

By faking death! At least that’s what Junior Lincoln decides to do. As the youngest of the twelve Lincolns, and being full brothers with Jared, he knows that his new faith will never go anywhere if he doesn’t do something. With assistance from the FBI he assumes a new identity and relocates to a small town.

His aim is to lay low, blend in and finish his college degree. But if he wanted to do that he shouldn’t have taken a job as a relationship counselor, fondly known by the townsfolk as the Love Doctor. He shouldn’t have let himself fall for his first client. And most of all, he should have made sure it never got out that he’s an ex-practitioner.

How do you make your child’s father marry you?

Hazel Robbins, desperate to make Nate fall in love with her so that their daughter will have a better childhood than she had, turns to Junior, aka the Love Doctor, for help. But as they spend time together, their ‘practice dates’ begin to feel like the real thing.

When paranormal activity begins to sweep across the college campus, Hazel and the other students look to Junior for help. He’s the only one who seems to know what to do about it, and his prayers work.

But can Junior continue to depend on God when his life is suddenly in danger, or will he turn to the craft that he’s so used to relying on?

And can Hazel and Junior have a happy ending if she finds out his true identity?

As always, get in touch once you’ve read it. I want to continue to write books that resonate with readers, and the only way I can do that is by getting your feedback. Email me: My email address was down for a while, but it’s all sorted now. So apologies to everyone who tried to email me and couldn’t get through. Unfortunately, all those emails can’t be recovered 🙁 Thankfully, the issue has been resolved 🙂

Happy New Year in advance.

    I just finished the runaway. Wow. I would have liked to have the next book to read right away but I will have to wait till spring 😔

    You kept it real. Even the partying that goes on on campus thanks for that… still will like a bit more of Juda and Crystal involved in their lives but it was fantastic

    • Dayo Benson says:

      Hi Carla, sorry you have to wait until Spring. I’ll be releasing some other books before then so hopefully the wait won’t seem so long. Juda and Crystal show up in the next Lincoln book 🙂

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but,
    I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

    I’ve already read it twice! Haha, this one was great! It seemed a little different than your usual writing style, but I still loved it! I got a new Kindle as a Christmas present, and this was the first book I downloaded on it 🙂 as soon as I got the email that it was out, I ordered it right away, and finished it that day, haha.

    • Dayo Benson says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Emily. Yes, it’s a little different from the previous 2 books in the series but I’m glad all the feedback has been positive so far. Enjoy your new Kindle 🙂

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    • Dayo Benson says:

      I’m no expert at blogging so I’m not really the best person to ask. WordPress is really good and you can install WordPress on a self-hosted platform too. I think either option is fine.
