A Touch of Ghanaian Pidgin English - All about Chale #Ghana #Romance #MedicalRomance

In both Midwife to Destiny and Destiny Mine I use the word Chale. In Ghana this is the Pidgin English way of saying ‘friend’. Similar to the word ‘buddy’ or ‘pal’. It can be spelled many different ways such as Charlie, Charley, or the way I chose, Chale.

Either way, when someone calls you this, it’s a good thing because it’s a term of familiarity and camaraderie. Its a sexless term, but I’ve found that men use the term more often. Although I do have a couple of friends who call me Chale, I rarely use it, but love the term.

One of the beer companies in Ghana picked up on it and uses it as part of their advertisement. They aren’t the only ones, but the ad sticks out in my mind because their branding is everywhere- plus I love their beer.

Chale, get your copy of Destiny Mine while it's still 99 cents at Amazon. Or get your print copy if you're so inclined.

Extraordinary midwife, Esi Darfour, is looking to get married. She’s a master matchmaker but has no luck when it comes to her love life and has yet to find a man worthy of her. Until she has to deal with gorgeous Dr. Adam Quarshie outside of work.

Adam is a player who refuses to get married—ever. His interest lies more in getting her into bed than in having any kind of committed relationship. Esi’s matchmaker instincts warn her to run in the other direction as quickly as possible, but her heart insists she stay…get closer…and see if what they feel for each other can change his mind.
