BLUE: A Multigenerational Epic of Destiny, Secrets, and Freedom


Until the lion tells his side of the story, the tale of the hunt will
always glorify the hunter.


Spanning five generations, four families, two continents, and three
secrets, BLUE is a captivating saga that intertwines the lives of four
extraordinary individuals on an urgent mission for freedom.


Meet the Protagonists:


  • Nicole Johnson: A beautiful Howard University MBA graduate with a vision to
    build her international advertising/marketing company, Fresh, Inc., in her
    hometown of Chicago.
  • Regina Bovine: A stunning artistic marketer and graduate of life’s
    challenges, Regina becomes Nicole’s partner in Fresh, Inc., bringing her
    unique perspective and talent.
  • Segun Bada: A brilliant MIT graduate who establishes the headquarters of
    his international conglomerate, Quantum Protection Systems (Q.P.S.), in
    Gaborone, Botswana.
  • Sotonye Bada: Segun’s gifted brother and a graduate of the Mayo Medical
    School, Sotonye sets up his medical practice in Gaborone, Botswana,
    alongside his brother.


Together, their paths converge in an extraordinary saga that takes them
across the globe to Chicago, New Orleans, Botswana, Sudan, Ethiopia,
Huntsville, Nigeria, Kenya, Washington D.C., and Tanzania. As they unravel
the secrets of their ancestors, they discover the reason the ancient oracles
destined them to join forces.


A Race Against Time:

With BLUE, a formidable force of evil, threatening to unleash his deadliest
powers upon the world before the children born to either join or destroy him
reach their thirty-first birthday, Nicole and Regina are drawn back to the
African continent, the birthplace of BLUE.

In a final, epic battle, they join Sotonye and Segun to protect the Freedom
Code, a legacy for their ancestors, their present allies, and the future
generations of their people—and all people. For if one man or woman is
enslaved, so is the world.


BLUE: A Riveting Tale of:


  • Family: Exploring the intricate bonds and connections between generations
    and families across continents.
  • Love: Showcasing the power of love in its various forms, from familial love
    to romantic love.
  • Destiny: Unraveling the ancient prophecies that foretold the convergence of
    four lives on a mission.
  • Freedom: Fighting for the fundamental right of freedom for all individuals
    and the world at large.


Immerse yourself in this multigenerational epic that will keep you turning
pages as you journey alongside Nicole, Regina, Segun, and Sotonye in their
quest for freedom and the preservation of their legacy.



About the Author

 Walter Jones, a native Chicagoan, (1952 -) has written his first novel.

“Dreams can come true, but it probably won’t happen as you
first imagined. No one could have told me a novel I started when I was in my
forties would come to fruition in my sixties. Or that I would go from golden
boy to ‘I‘m sorry. You are extremely qualified for the position,
but we are considering other candidates.’ Or that I would face years
of doubt and criticism from relatives and friends.”

The sixth child of Mary Louise Spillman and Russell Donald Jones Jr.,
Walter grew up in two predominately African American communities, Morgan
Park and Chatham. The Spillmans were one of the first African American
families to settle in Chicago; they owned homes and businesses and took care
of their neighborhoods.

By the mid-1960s, the civil rights movement was in full swing. Housing
projects had been built and crime was on the rise. By the time Walter
graduated from Chicago State University (psychology), the peace he had known
in his youth was a memory.

Walter had high hopes that he could make a difference when he began his
career at the Austin Chicago YMCA before becoming the first black executive
at Lawson YMCA Metro Chicago. He ended his YMCA career at the historical
Black Washington Park. Thereafter, he worked at Habitat Boulevard LLC and
then ventured out on his own to found his own construction company.

“Working in public service, I watched my people falling into
materialistic, superficial, and destructive traps. I was surprised and
humbled to find I was no exception. When my construction business failed, I
had to reassess myself and my life. For years I had focused on the image I
wanted my children and others to have of me, not on the man I truly was. I
began to reflect on the people who had profoundly influenced my life.”

BLUE began to take form as Walter wrote about the African American life of
his youth—the beauty, majesty, brilliance, and courage of his people.
He suddenly realized he was rebuilding that which he had lost, a love of
self and humanity. To support his family, he took odd jobs. Ultimately he
joined a security company, where he works to this day.

“As my greatest advocate, my mother read my first draft of BLUE
before her death in 1995 and made me promise to complete it. Little did I
know she was freeing me from BLUE and showing me how long the path can be to
freedom, but I learned, and I am grateful.”
