A place where moments take your breath away

I.O.U. The Mancini Saga

On October 12, 2009, I woke from a sound sleep, startled by a disturbing dream–a dream that led me to write–I.O.U.  

Over the course of the past year, I did mounds of research on Cults, cult leaders and their followers. Some things were greatly disturbing while other things left me astounded.

Today, I want to share this story with you; take you into the life of Mia Baker and Carlo Mancini. Follow Mia as she struggles to escape from behind the compound walls, finds an inner drive to survive, and battles with the persisting guilt of leaving her family behind.  This is a story of dedication, strength, and perseverance.

Currently, I.O.U. can be purchased on Amazon eBooks at the following link: April M. Reign’s I.O.U.  and the paperback and hardback will be available within two weeks.

And for your viewing pleasure, please watch the book trailer of I.O.U., which was filmed in NYC.   Book Trailer

Please share this with your friends, family or those book lovers that you may have in your life. I’m striving to get my book out there for everyone to enjoy.


With much appreciation,

I.O.U – About the Book~


Release date: December


 Twenty-seven-year-old detective Carlo Mancini is your average do-good kind-of-guy with an insatiable appetite for justice. However, Carlo has one personal setback: his inability to let a senseless crime become a cold case. His obsession to uphold the law has led him on a ten-year, dead-end search for the infamous IOU thief.

Twenty-six-year-old Mia Baker lives a normal life: a quaint apartment overlooking Central Park, cherished friends, and Pirate, her one-eyed cat. To most people, Mia’s life seems perfect; but to Mia, that couldn’t be further from the truth—especially when her disturbing past comes back to haunt her.

 When Detective Mancini bangs on Mia’s front door, he has no idea he will soon unravel some disturbing truths about himself, and the woman in front of him. One chance encounter can destroy the very fabric of their woven lives when Carlo realizes reality is not always black and white….

. . Especially when secrets are involved.
