They are aberrations among the pool of millions of aspiring college students who submit scholarship applications to the hundreds of companies, foundations and non-profit groups that offer them.

This book’s author, Gwen Richardson, is a parent who spent nearly two years carefully researching scholarship sources for her teenage daughter, who entered college debt-free as a freshman. The highlight of this book is a comprehensive listing of more than 200 scholarship sources, including award amounts, eligibility requirements and direct web site links.

In this fully-revised third edition, the author sketches the history of a church in Kent, Sierra Leone that grew in indirect proportion to the transatlantic slave trade: as it grew, the trade waned. Both the church and the village emerged and developed as a direct result of the British 1807 Abolition Act, by which many thousands of captive Africans were released into Freetown. In writing this short history, the author, whose association with Kent village has spanned more than 40 years, has drawn on the insight of the Anglican Church Missionary Society, officials of the colonial government, and villagers themselves, whose ancestors were there when it all happened.

African Mathematics: History, Textbook and Study Guide aims to meet several objectives. Firstly, the book gives a historical overview of Africa and its contribution to Mathematics. Secondly, the book provides the teacher and the learner with study materials that can be used in the classroom. Thirdly, the book introduces some of the numerical patterns and puzzles that has fascinated one of the authors John Matthews. Fourthly, the book introduces the lectures, classes and workshops that the two authors teach on these subjects. Mathematics has an interesting history in Africa. This history forms the first part of the book. The earliest known mathematical artefact in human history is the Lebombo Bone. Thought to be 37,000 years old, it was discovered by archaeologists in South Africa. Scholars believe that the number system carved into the bone represents a lunar calendar. Later mathematical evidence comes from the Ishango region of Central Africa, Ancient Egypt, Medieval North Africa, Ethiopia, Medieval West Africa and Medieval Central Africa. Mathematics teachers have asked for material that can be used in the classroom where these African mathematical ideas can be used, tested or even challenged. To this aim, the second part of the book presents classroom material that can engage children. Each lesson demonstrates a mathematical principle followed by classroom exercises that the pupils can attempt. We have provided perhaps 22 hours worth of teaching and learning material. The third part of this book was written wholly by John Matthews, a secondary school mathematics teacher. It contains a sample of his tips and short cuts that any pupil of mathematics can profitably use to improve their engagement with number. Mr Matthews also believes that students of mathematics should enjoy detecting patterns in number sequences. In the fourth part of the book he presents a sample of his own discoveries in this area. He also presents classroom exercises that the pupils can attempt.

‘Few Americans are aware that Alex Haley has two books among the most popular in American history--his collaboration with Malcolm X and Roots. Adam Henig underscores this point and more in his brief but incisive biography of Haley. Much more can be said about this magnificent writer and if Henig's book doesn't ignite this search, it will stand as a worthy pursuit of Haley's contribution to American letters.” —Herb Boyd, author of Baldwin's Harlem: A Biography of James Baldwin and co-editor of By Any Means Necessary: Malcolm X: Real, Not Reinvented

In 1977, following the airing of the mega hit television mini-series Roots, its author, Alex Haley, became America’s newest “folk hero. ” He was on his way to becoming the most successful author in the history of publishing until it all fell apart.

Based on interviews of Haley’s contemporaries, personal correspondence, legal documents, newspaper accounts, Adam Henig investigates the unraveling of one of America’s most successful yet enigmatic authors.

EXCERPT

"I found you drinking waters from the fountains of another garden And I saw clearly from one quadrant of the garden to the other… roses…. Beautiful roses. I looked through the glass and saw all my bushes and thorns, and no roses A thicket, but no roses orchid and lilies; no roses waters that ran deep; but no roses (To love me you had to suffer pricks, bruises, and wear my body, sinful, but my soul very rare) Did you get tired of standing outside my garden waiting for roses to bloom? To symbolize the beauty in my wisdom, trust, and faith in you? Did you grow weary of loving me? While I was going fond of your aversion to me? All I could say when looking into your eyes was, “I’m sorry…I never promised you a rose garden.” And all you said was silence. And all I heard was a pounding and it kept getting louder and louder and I began to crack And it drove me mad and all I saw was a tear in your eyes “goodbye” …. you said “And take your heart with you,” you scolded, “It’s disturbing my peace.” And you began to quote the words of the prophet, and said, “I only wanted one time to see you laughing, I only wanted to be some kind of friend” And I too began to quote, “Until the end of time, I’ll be there for you, you are my heart & mind, I truly adore you.” You frowned, your disposition turned around, hugged me, and used your key to let me out of this garden by the gates’ door. There I’ll return. Nevermore.

A WORK OF RECLAMATION AND RESTITUTION IN TWELVE BOOKS Vol. I and 2. It may have been a million years ago The Light was kindled in the Old Dark Land With which the illumined Scrolls are all aglow, That Egypt gave us her mummified hand: This was the secret of that subtle smile Inscrutable upon the Sphinx's face, Now told from sea to sea, from isle to isle; The revelation of the Old Dark Race; Theirs was the wisdom of the Bee and Bird, Ant, Tortoise, Beaver, working human-wise; The ancient darkness spoke with Egypt's Word; Hers was the primal message of the skies: The Heavens are telling nightly of her glory, And for all time Earth echoes her great story. I have written other books, but this I look upon as the exceptional labour which has made my life worth living. Comparatively speaking, 'A Book of the Beginnings' (London, 1881) was written in the dark, 'The Natural Genesis' (London, 1883) was written in the twilight, whereas 'Ancient Egypt' has been written in the light of day. The earlier books were met in England with the truly orthodox conspiracy of silence. Nevertheless, four thousand volumes have got into circulation somewhere or other up and down the reading world, where they are slowly working in their unacknowledged way. Probably the present book will be appraised at home in proportion as it comes back piecemeal from abroad, from Germany, or France, or maybe from the country of the Rising Sun. To all lovers of the truth the writer now commends the verifiable truths that wait for recognition in these pages. Truth is all-potent with its silent power If only whispered, never heard aloud, But working secretly, almost unseen, Save in some excommunicated book; 'Tis as the lightning with its errand done Before you hear the thunder. For myself, it is enough to know that in despite of many hindrances from straitened circumstances, chronic ailments, and the deepening shadows of encroaching age, my book is printed, and the subject-matter that I cared for most is now entrusted safely to the keeping of John Gutenberg, on this my nine-and-seventieth birthday.

One’s strength lies in their uniqueness. While similarities aren’t considered weaknesses, it’s the sole possessions of one human than attracts them to another… that one thing that someone their opposite can find inside of their core, but not within themselves. It’s what attaches them, intrigues them as a flame does a moth. It’s the bridge that gaps them together in a manner that other’s may be ignorant to, while the details are in plain sight for the two basking in the afterglow. Ripleigh, a young single mother, has been beat down by the biggest villain of all. Life has gutted her of her most valuable vessel, the heart. After suffering through the death of her counterpart, and daughter’s father, she’s left with merely a shell to call home for the rest of the organs that are keeping her amongst the living. Ripleigh packed her things and moved down south for a more modest living and to place the pain of loss as many miles behind her as she could. While life seemed to be plentiful closer to the boarder, Ripleigh’s funds were diminishing. Quick on her feet, she reduced her pride and laced up her highest heels to tread the stage of ILLUSION, the most sought out dwelling for upscale nightlife. Semaaj, prominent medical provider and face of Northcross Pediatric Care, stumbles into a dimly lit atmosphere full of hookah smoke, chest rocking base, and clad women with insane skills and enough strength to help him lay the final bricks to his newly purchased children’s clinic. Though he feels as if he’s worlds away from his comfort zone, he feels a familiar tugging of his heartstrings after setting his eyes on the talented Blyss. Semaaj, later, finds himself frequenting the underworld at an alarming rate, and the staff soon knows him by name. His request is simple, Blyss. Two strangers, two completely different worlds, two bizarre parties discover that there is likeness even in their oppositions. While Ripleigh decides to run, Semaaj exchanges his stethoscope and lab coat for joggers and tennis shoes. He accepts the challenge of digging up Ripleigh’s, as known as Blyss, heart -the vessel that had been buried along with her previous lover. Bruised, cut, leaking, and dysfunctional as it may come packaged, he cares nothing for it’s appearance. The purity of it’s inside is what he’s most desirable of.

You live your whole life never understanding why some people are dangerous, until you cross their path. By then it’s too late. When they strike, you never see it coming. And they continue to strike until they break you down or force you to run and hide.

Poisonous people are this way and they are everywhere. Unfortunately, having them in your inner circle can prove fatal if you aren’t careful, or if you don’t know who they are. They have attractive personalities, but people may see them as somewhat controlling or manipulative early in the relationship. They can tear you down in a short amount of time for what seems like no reason, or if they feel a loss of control. To exist around them becomes a battle.

Poisonous people make you want to please them even when you are not a people-pleaser. You’ve watched them tear down others with their words and behavior. You were happy to watch from the sideline, until they targeted you. Why does everything they say hurt? Shaking off their poison is not easy, and you find it hard to escape their grip once they have you.

Some poisonous people even go out of their way to make your life a living hell and to make others to hate you. How to deal with a poisonous person is not only necessary for your sanity and peace of mind, but your physical health as well. Don’t let people destroy you when they can’t control you; it would be a mistake that you can’t afford to live with. My goal is to help you deal with poisonous people, who are angry at life, so that you aren’t destroyed by them.

What is the world’s oldest religion? What is the true religion for Black people? What was Africa’s original religion? Early Africa and its religious heritage should be of interest to the people of modern Africa and the Black Diaspora. Divided into three parts, this book, Blacks and Religion Volume One, addresses the big questions. The first part of this book is entitled: What did Africa contribute to the Origin of Religion? It addresses the Ancient and Traditional African religions and shows the common concepts that existed between them. The second part of this book is entitled: The Equinox and the Real Story behind Easter. It addresses the Spring Equinox and shows that many early religions practiced similar ideas at that time of the year. The third part of this book is entitled: Understanding the Book of the Dead. It addresses the content and symbolism of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. This is the most influential set of religious texts in the history of religion. While superficially difficult to understand, the Egyptian Book of the Dead is not as strange or as difficult a text as it at first appears.

Information on Black scientists and inventors is becoming more readily available to the general public and this is a welcome development. However, information specifically on the scientific and technological contributions of the Ancient Egyptians is not as readily available as one might think. Great books and essays have been written on the topic but many authors have pitched their works above the level of the ordinary reader. Other papers are in difficult-to-find journals and collections. Some writers, in an attempt to bring greater prestige to twentieth century European and European American science, dismiss all ancient science as superstition and error. They emphasize what the Ancient Egyptians did not know as opposed to what they did know. In this book, Blacks and Science Volume One, I bring the information together in one place. I write positively about what the Ancient Egyptians achieved and do not waste ink on what they did not achieve. Finally I present the information in as straightforward and accessible a way as possible. Should you read this book and learn the information: * You will gain a greater mastery over Black or African History * Your knowledge will be the envy of your friends and family * Learning your historical contributions will skyrocket your confidence and esteem * Your interest in all areas of human culture will dramatically increase * You will have a vast reserve of information to pass on to your children This book is largely a synthesis of my previously published Kindle e-books Ancient Egyptian Contributions to Science and Technology combined with The Mysterious Sciences of the Great Pyramid. The feedback I received from these e-books was positive, but many people asked me if was possible to turn these lecture essays into physical books. After all, not everybody possesses a Kindle! My response was to produce this book Blacks and Science Volume One. Very shortly, other volumes in this series will be issued. The first part of this book is a general introduction to the role played by the Ancient Egyptians in the origin and evolution of Mathematics, Astronomy, Medicine & Surgery, Navigation & Cartography, Architecture, Construction and other areas that are more controversial. The second part of the book focuses on one monument—the Great Pyramid of Giza. In this section, I review the discussions and speculations of what the Ancient Egyptians probably knew about pi, phi, the Dimensions of the Earth, etcetera. Robin Walker

Did YOU know that a camera invented by a Black astrophysicist was used during the Apollo 16 space mission to collect ultraviolet images photographed from the moon? In fact did you know any of the following facts? • An early eighteenth century Virginia slave developed effective treatments against skin and venereal disease. In fact: His work was so outstanding that in 1729 the Virginia Legislature bought him from his owner, thus freeing him from slavery, to practice medicine exclusively’ • Astronomical works by a late eighteenth century Black mathematician and astronomer were widely read and became a household staple in early America along with the Bible’ • A nineteenth century African American blacksmith patented an invention described as the most important single invention in the whole history of whaling’ • A nineteenth century inventor of Black South American heritage created such a revolution in the shoe industry, that it was said of him: What Edison is to artificial lighting, [he] is to footwear’ • By 1913, African Americans held around 1,000 patents for various inventions in household goods, industrial machinery, transportation, electricity and chemical compounds • A Black physicist extended the Quantum Theory in the 1920s • Henry Ford described a Black botanist in the 1930s as the greatest living scientist’ • Another Black chemist invented synthetic cortisone, an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis that broke the monopoly that European chemists had on the production of sterols • Twelve Black scientists and mathematicians worked on the Manhattan Project, i.e. the American nuclear bomb project, during World War II • A Black surgeon headed the blood bank system of the US and the UK during World War II • The research of a Black physicist and inventor of the 1960s may hold a key to addressing the main concerns of our times dwindling sources of useable energy, rising energy costs, and increasing demand for energy For too many people, it may be the first time that they had ever encountered such information. This is unfortunate. I believe that African and African Diasporan science history is a subject that has had too little attention paid to it. Some important writers have ventured into the field; Professor Ivan Van Sertima and his team, Mr J. A. Rogers, Mr Samuel Kennedy Yeboah, Dr Louis Haber, and Mr Hunter Havelin Adams III. My work synthesises and updates their findings. I also present the data in an easy to digest, bite-size way. This book is a general introduction to the role played by the African Americans in the evolution of the Space Sciences, Invention, Mathematics & Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Botany & Zoology, and Medicine & Surgery.

Grady recruits the green-eyed Jamaican beauty, JULIA DUNCAN, to spy on Garvey’s Security Officer. And someone unknown to either PETE or GRADY is a double agent who is leaking information to Negro militants, testified by the ferocious defense the African Blood Brotherhood wages against the Ku Klux Klan’s and the Oklahoma National Guard in defense ot the Tulsa Black community. However, when JULIA and PETE fall in love, they must flee to Los Angeles to escape both Garvey’s hit men and government agents. But they arrive just in time to become involved in the Klan’s threat to apply the Tulsa-solution to LA’s Negro community. Set against the background of the Roaring Twenties when lawlessness, government wrongdoing and the Ku Klux Klan rule the land, Blood and Brotherhood dramatizes the epic struggle of the New Negro to win his freedom. It tells the story of military’s obsession with the 200,000 Negroes returning from the Great European War and the government’s belief that Negroes trained in combat represented a threat to white America ___ a threat that had to be eliminated permanently. Blood and Brotherhood is a rare novel you’d like to reread, "because like with any classic, you can always go back and salivate on that perfect blend of characters, symbolic nuances and delectable intrigue."

SECOND EDITION, AUGUST 2016, WITH FOUR NEW ILLUSTRATIONS: In the summer of 1960 before his senior year in high school, Jeff Klossen canoodles friends Randy and Lori into joining him in canoeing every lake and stream around Cleveland. Dynamics between the teens change as they battle rapids, and waters poisoned by pollution. Though at first the boys assume the lead, Lori’s daring and determination win her admiration and an equal place on the team. As Jeff and Lori become interested in each other, their conversations lead them to investigate the racial segregation of their neighborhood. After a canoeing accident on an angry Lake Erie, they meet Walter Madison from the black part of the city, and Jeff and Lori wonder if they can make him and his friend Sarah a part of their lives. In the end, the pair confront both race relations and environmental damage in the city. Novelist-poet-playwright Stanford Pritchard describes it thus: “Canoedling in Cleveland is a really nifty book: much more dark, and varied, than the early chapters suggest it’s going to be. It has treachery, tragedy, love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Even though nobody gets off easy, and this is by no means a feel-good story, it’s full of hope and idealism. It’s a bittersweet, deeply touching coming-of-age tale. What starts as an innocent summer pastime gradually forces five young people to confront both the limits of personal friendship, and the hard injustices of the larger world. Swept along on ever more powerful currents, their journey becomes as steeped in tender memory as the film ’Summer of ’42’, and as timeless as Huckleberry Finn.” In the 23rd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, the judge issued five points (“outstanding”) in each of the six categories evaluated and concluded with the sentence, “Morris has done a wonderful job, creating a book that deserves a place in every middle school and high school library.”

Prologue Words. They convey thoughts, meaning, emotion. Communication covers a wide array of expression, but words are one of its most powerful constituents. Words can be trapped inside the mind, or captured and birthed onto a sheet of paper. They can even appear in dreams. Words seem to be able to dwell within any climate; any existence. Words are not always heard or given the gift of sound, and despite their disguise they never cease being words. A word can be spoken, thought, felt and expressed through the smallest hints of body language…

Imagine sharing the spotlight with a ruthless blackmailer, whose only intention, is to take all of which you’ve worked hard to achieve your wealth, your fame, and your church of seven thousand members. For Pastor Leroy Paxton of Mount Moriah Baptist Church, this is no imagination. Five years ago, he committed a toxic sin and almost lost his life trying to cover it up. He now comes face to face with his past, which haunts him from the pulpit to his bedroom. And the only way out of this nightmare is to make a decision that could cost him everything. Then imagine being mentored by one of the most revered men, Abraham Winder, whose stance on accountability and sexual purity is taught rigorously within the Mount Moriah mentoring program, only to discover your mentor is not what you expect. This is the reality for Dominic Housten, one of Abraham’s closet and trusted protgs, who accidentally stumbles upon a scene that left him frozen in disbelief. As Dominic struggles with betrayal, he confides in the pastor’s daughter the only woman he’d secretly loved for years. The only problem with that is the pastor’s daughter is married to Phillip Benjamin, a deacon of the church and an extremely jealous man, who suspects Dominic’s intention runs deeper than just a casual friendship. The intertwined lives of these four men show that the righteous are not perfect, and at times, are tempted to forsake the ways of God. As each of these men battle to regain their focus, they will come to realize that the consequences of their sins are far greater than they’d anticipated just one stupid mistake could produce a lifetime of hell!

Week after week, Sunday after Sunday, churches are occupied by attendees looking and sounding like Christians. The goal of this book is to expound on the differences between bona fide Christians and the counterfeit Christians that populate many of our church buildings today. There are recognizable differences in mannerisms, speech, and mindsets, among other things. Knowledge about these differences, along with a fresh determination to work harder at pleasing God, is what I hope readers will take away with them. As a result, maybe church folks will become less successful at running people away from the church and more successful at bringing the unsaved into the fold.

From Kwame Alexander, the 2015 Newbery Medalist, a collection of poetry for young people. STARRED REVIEW: Gr 8 Up: Alexander offers a cosmopolitan menu of tanka, haiku, long titles that lead into short first lines, verbal formulas that lead to sung discoveries, French phrases, prose poems, and poems written in Spanglish. The book is divided into three sections with various speakers, and a fourth section that includes poems by Sherman Alexie, Pablo Neruda, Nikki Giovanni, and the title poem, "Crush," by Naomi Shihab Nye. A poem in the first section, "What Makes Me Feel Good," begins with one word, "isn’t/the way you style your hair or/how all the other girls stare/it’s not even the way you kneel/in church, unafraid of prayer." Many of the poems lend themselves to pairing with the classics. In "He Says He Loves Me," the speaker responds to her paramour’s advances (think Marvel’s finessing in "To His Coy Mistress"). When he tells her he has "protection," she asks "does he have enough of it/To guard my heart/To give shelter to my soul/in case of emergency." This well-crafted anthology will capture the interest of teens and possibly encourage them to submit their own "crush" poems to an appended Web site for a contest.

The Mimi Patterson/Gianna Maglione Mysteries (Volume 4)

It sometimes seems to Police Lieutenant Gianna Maglione that people invent new ways to visit hate upon each other, and she should know: As head of the Washington, D.C. police department’s Hate Crimes Unit, she gets a close-up look at the ugliness on a regular basis, and it’s taking a toll. Montgomery "Mimi" Patterson sees her share of ugly, too. As the city’s top investigative newspaper reporter, her forte is uncovering government graft and corruption at high and low levels, and those she brings down hate her for it. "I didn’t tell ’em to steal the public’s money," she says with a shrug. But it’s getting to her. Tired of corrupt politicians, she seeks a different kind of story and runs right into a hate crime and one of HCU’s investigations. It’s a dance she and Gianna have done before and while they still don’t like it—especially Gianna—it is something they’re learning to deal with, something they must learn to deal with if their relationship is to survive, and that’s something they both want. They both sense a darkness settling over the city they both love, and it’s coming from the worst possible places and people: Corrupt, hate-filled cops and corrupt, hate-filled ministers. The police department and the church. No way they can let this happen in their city, so for the first time, Mimi and Gianna agree to work together. Mimi and Gianna. Once again, love wins.

Have you ever asked yourself why you struggle finding healthy, loving romantic relationships? Marla Washington’s book, “Dating Without A Daddy” offers a unique perspective as to why some of you find yourselves in unhealthy romantic relationships. She suggests some of your problems can be traced back to childhood and that growing up fatherless may have a profound effect on your love choices. Daddy is a term of endearment. This word signifies a special relationship between a father and child. Almost every little girl at one time or another envisioned having a daddy, a strong male to hold, to kiss and to just hear him say, “you’re daddy’s little girl and I will always love you.” But for millions of young girls having a dad is just a fantasy. And for those of you who didn’t have a dad as a young girl, as you transition into womanhood, there becomes this constant need to fill this void with any male figure. “Dating Without A Daddy” is more than an analysis of the problem and a laundry list of don’ts. Marla Washington offers the must do’s for avoiding being a victim of fatherlessness and successfully discovering a worthy life partner. Consider this book an intervention for those of you who don’t have a father or father figure to tell you some of the things needed to discern the men you pursue and the men who pursue you. This book is a critical insight into the lives of fatherless daughters looking for love.

People will do whatever they can to bully you into doing what they want you to do, including exclude you from others you know, tell your most trusted secret, lie, and even spread rumors from one person to another, all in an effort to hurt you. We are all familiar with the milkman characters from decades back. He came to your door with fresh bottles of cold milk, but that wasn’t all that he carried with him. His day consisted of going from house to house, with a wealth of secrets, rumors, and lies he picked up during his daily rounds. He was just like people you know who go around and talk behind your back, all to make you look bad and feel humiliated, by saying, “The milkman said you did…” You may be asking, “What did I do to deserve this?” The answer is, nothing. You did nothing to deserve this treatment. Some folks are just not happy, so they use a tactic called “relational aggression” to gain control over others. If you are not sure who these folks are around you every day, this book will help you to identify who and where they are in your life, and how to stop them by using positive tactics. Don’t Tell the Milkman If You Don’t Want Him to Tell the World is a book that focuses on rumors, secrets, lies, and gossip spread by people you know, and don’t know, in aggressive and non-aggressive manners.

Overnight, every prison in the country had become permanently overcrowded beyond humane capacity. The national murder rate was so catastrophic, that not even a Richter scale could measure. The message from mainstream America to the underworld was clear: —For anyone considered a criminal, law & order no longer existed. —Instead of being apprehended, arrested and tried in a court of law, DRUG DEALERS were now ordered to be identified, hunted and eliminated. This was now the new version of America’s law…

This book is part of The Integrated Life series.

THE CONCEPT: "In the pursuit of economic survival, bodily sustenance and social acceptance, people often (1) disregard their passion in order to focus on a practical career, (2) allow their diet to undermine their health, and (3) deny their sexual and gender wiring in order to conform to societal concepts of relationship. Therein lies the majority of unhappiness in our modern life." The solution is to live the integrated life! Take the Integrated Life online test at http://www.integratedlifetest.com and discover how integrated these areas of your life are! Then, read the book to learn what to do about it!

****

THE DEFINITION:
ducks in a row: Everything is ready, all preparations are complete. To have everything just the way you want it before you take the next step.
usage example: "I definitely want to quit my job and pursue my passion, but I want to get all my ducks in a row before I hand in my resignation." THE FLAW:
"I’ve never met a set of ducks who liked standing in a row for too long." Sure, we’ve all seen ducks in a row. The trouble is, watch them long enough and they eventually break formation. In other words, if you’re waiting for things to be perfect and stay perfect for before you act on your dreams in general, and if your success quitting your job and becoming an entrepreneur in particular is contingent on those ducks staying in line for the duration of your adventure in freedom, you might be in for a rude awakening. THE TRUTH:
"It’s not about the freakin’ ducks!! It never was and never will be." If you make it about the ducks, then you’ve got to keep herding ducks every day of your life.

There is perhaps nothing more vital to a man’s sense of well being and masculinity than his ability to achieve and sustain an erection to please his partner. There are many products on the market that are capitalizing on this desire, and while some are seen as effective in the short-term, none of them will ever be completely effective or safe in actually curing impotence.

In Fit to Breed…Forever, you’ll find out:

The elements of your belief system about food, the body, health, illness and healing that are making you impotent, and why the drug companies don’t want you to ever access THE TRUTH AND YOUR TRUE POWER.

The MYTHS AND ILLUSIONS of modern living and health through medicine that keep most people trapped on an inevitable path towards impotence.

The 7 TRUTHS you must internalize and act upon if you want to succeed - and why 6 out of 7 is not good enough.

10 real CAUSES OF "IMPOTENCE" society doesn’t talk about and would rather have you believe don’t exist, plus the simple remedies you need to implement.

Excerpt: Kesi’ Shaw’s “Black Hollywood (The Oscar Poem)”

In 2001, Halle Berry won the prestigious award
for her role in Monster&rsquos Ball
Was it because her bare breast brought
back memories of white slave masters
sneaking into slave quarters after dark
to test the theory &ldqu”o;the darker the berry,
the sweeter the juice?
Or was it her vulnerability that allowed her
to beg Billy Bob Thornton to “make me feel good”
that sounded so familiar?
So you mean to tell me
Her strong willed-determined-to-overcome-adversity persona
in Things We Lost in the Fire
and Losing Isaiah were not worthy?
Her command of respect and acknowledgment
in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge
was not worthy?
But getting naked and fucking a white man
on the couch is an award-winning
performance

Gary Phillips’ Nate Hollis leaps from the comic page to his first complete prose collection. Authors Juliet Blackwell, Bobby Nash, Aaron Philip Clark, and Derrick Ferguson join Phillips to create six double barreled tales of mystery and action. The streets are mean, but they don’t hold a stick of dynamite to Hollis, P.I. From creator Gary Phillips and Pro Se Productions. “PI Nate Hollis originally sprang from the rich imagination of LA-based writer Gary Phillips, but he’s so real and tactile he could climb off the page and buy you a bourbon. Now, four other authors are getting a piece of Nate, too, and this latest collection of Nate stories is wonderful. This is contemporary noir at its best, offering all the familiar pleasures of the genre, but giving them a modern makeover. Yes, this is a violent world that Nate inhabits, but he steers a true and moral course through the layers of deception, skullduggery and sometimes worse that make these stories such high-density entertainment. Nate’s a great character and these stories do him justice and more. “ T. Jefferson Parker Author of “The Famous and the Dead”

Once the sun goes down on Halloween, something happens to time, that fragile concept we employ to order our sense of reality. It bends, stretches, turns back, or snaps, and sometimes reality with it.

Bizarre tales of unthinkable acts from the twilight regions where horror and madness take on eerie, unearthly forms…where noises in the walls and shadows by the bed are always signs of something dreadful on the prowl. The settings are familiar and innocuous—a theme park, a rustic cabin on the shores of a pristine lake, even a strip club. But in the world of Darryl J. Johnson any place can serve as devils ground…if the time of night is just right, and the forces of darkness are strong, and the victims are caught just slightly off their guard…

Everyone, has a story to tell, I’ve just been contemplating if the world was ready to hear mine. You would be surprised at who will try to stop you from telling your story as if it will affect them. Where were those so-called family members when I was killing myself on the streets looking for love? I am here only by the grace of God. I have scars and my scars cover me from head to toe. Isn’t it funny how in the midst of your darkest hours of life and sin that darkness tries to make you laugh? It makes you forget about all the sorrow and pain it put you through before issuing you another gut-wrenching blow of misfortune? But, life never really offered me a laugh. I found my comfort by diving into a life of drugs and prostitution. My life was anything but perfect. And I knocked busters on their ass, men twice my size to prove that, I would not be taken advantage of in these streets. Fighting my brothers and sisters was a way of life. My family outcast me and my mamma turned her back to me while I was treated like trash in my own family. Abuse, neglect, suicide, drug addiction and prostitution were a part of my darkest hours of life. Could it be that my mind has been trying to outrun my pain and sorrow all these years? Or is it that my pain doesn’t want me to forget what has happened? I thought that if I got married life would change for me, but looking back on it and laughing now, married life did not treat me any better. And that’s because my husband was strung out on heroin and running the streets sleeping with crackheads and whores. My family outcast me and my husband beat me. I laid down to die as a way to escape the pain I was feeling, but death didn’t want me, not then. How did I get myself out of such a predicament? I did by the grace and mercy of God. I know that diamonds are precious stones. They are ugly to look at in their natural state and found amongst rocks and dirt walked on by people who don’t know their worth. I was a diamond and did not know my worth so long ago. I was stepped on in life and by people I loved and who I thought loved me. I added to my darkest hours with my own hands by the things that I was doing; I don’t deny it. Today I am delivered, no longer living in life’s darkest hours. I’ve survived my hell on earth and not ashamed to tell my story. Getting here wasn’t easy, I cried many nights, but I am here strong standing in God’s mercy and grace. I’ve overcome it all and if I can survive my darkest hours of life and find peace and happiness, so can you.

An uplifting "story" in poetry that reminds us to be comfortable with the decisions we make in enjoying life to the fullest. If a doctor gave you (and could really give you) 2 months to live, what would you do? Would you put together a list of people, places and things to see before your 60 days are up? Then have to do it all over again for another 60 days because you are the exception to the rule… or perhaps you’d not make it to the second day on your list…? A doctor cannot ’give’ you time. But, hey… one thing they’re right about is that one day each of us is not going to be here physically. Get over it!!! So why not start and restart celebrating your list now? You see, we often get caught up in the headlines of doom and miss the subtitles of success. This book’s subtitle is "A Celebration of Life." It’s not about dying… it’s about living. You’ll hit the ground running right after reading the last four lines of the title poem: I found out I’m dying And that I have been since Day #1 So I spend little time regretting my life Because I’d rather spend the time having fun. Sporty King is a Motivational Speaker who has used his gift of poetic expression to inspire audiences of all ages, ethnicities and genders for over a quarter of a century. King guides you through the book by ’discussing’ the inspiration behind, and use for each poem for practical application toward sharing this gift of life.

Located near present-day Oakland, California, the town is home to a little less than 500 citizens. In Ridgeway, everybody knows everybody else- which can be a good thing- or a bad thing. The Roses of Ridgeway: The feisty, determined female citizens of the settlement. They are intelligent, loving, and know their own minds- but they are far from perfect. The Roses are: Lilly Warren, Prudence Emerson, and Valerie Ridgeway. **Please Note**: The Roses of Ridgeway series books are SWEET in nature. There is no offensive content that would limit these books solely to mature adult readers. Expect some brief foul language, and light violence, and affectionate moments. However, sexual relations take place behind closed doors and are not portrayed on the page. Therefore, these books are appropriate for readers of all ages, from young, to mature, to young at heart. The Darling of the Founding Family Valerie Ridgeway is the granddaughter of Ridgeway’s founder, and the sole heir to the town’s ownership. A tall, graceful beauty, she’s had a slew of suitors- most every eligible man within fifty miles of town has come courting for her. Despite her loveliness, however, Valerie has developed a reputation for rejecting men with her icy demeanor. Only a select few of the townsfolk know the secret shame that fuels her bitterness. Approaching thirty, she’s given up on the fairy tale of marriage, choosing instead to give her time and effort to the betterment of the race. The Keeper of the Peace Noah Rogers, Ridgeway’s sheriff, takes his job very seriously. An intense man by nature, he bears the responsibility of the safety of the townsfolk, with only a single deputy to aid him. He’s eschewed romantic entanglements in order to give his full focus to his very important work- that is, until he lay eyes on Miss Ridgeway. He’s desired her from afar, biding his time, watching as she cut down a string of "suitable men," one after another. He’s aware of her reputation; still, he senses a vulnerable, radiant creature beneath all the sass and ire, one he intends to discover. A Budding Love… A Town in Jeopardy Just as Noah begins to woo Valerie, a rash of crime invades the usually peaceful environment of Ridgeway. When the safety of the innocent citizens of town becomes more threatened than ever before, Noah must find a way to protect them, and the woman he loves. But when shocking violence, loss, and grief threaten to unravel their hard-won courtship, will they find a way to overcome it all, so that Valerie can truly begin loving the lawman?

Format: Paperback, Age Range: 
Read Detailed Book Description

Memoirs of a Mad Black Educator by Bobby Dixon is a critical reflection on the education reform movement through the personal experiences of this African-American educator. Dixon fictionalizes some of his experiences to delineate the emergence of a new educational power structure, which entails the marriage of philanthropy, federal government policy, charter school operators, new forms of teacher training and administrator training programs, the profitable testing industry, mayoral control of large school districts, among other entities.

This new educational power structure not only advocates the privatization of public education, but forces it down the public’s throat. The consequence is the growing obsolescence of the public school and the public school teacher. There are massive firings and layoffs of skilled, veteran teachers and principals nationwide to make way for alternatively trained teachers and principals. Likewise there are nationwide closings of schools in minority and poor communities to make way for charter schools and special school districts.

This new structure has either eliminated or coopted teacher unions. It has devastated the solid, local economy of minority communities, abolishing jobs and benefits for not only teachers, but bus drivers, cafeteria workers, janitors, etc. In short, it has created the colonization of school districts with new “rulers”s or managers and sources of influence. This new transformation has taken place without choice, undemocratically, and without showing any improvement in test scores for students. Studies have shown that public schools have always performed as well or better than charter schools. This new power structure is based on a business model that seeks monetary “returns on its investment.” It is guided by mission statements and “vision statements” as any business would be. It advocates a market-driven system with “choice” at its core. It also relies heavily, to an extreme, on data, on test scores.

Dixon contends that besides wreaking havoc upon public education and undermining its democratic core, this new power structure is also replacing trust in teachers and local school boards with the dictatorship of mayoral control, state control, or private control. We have to resist this madness by organizing at the grassroots level.

When you are far away from home—but live in southeastern Michigan, the population bedrock of the state—and if asked, "Where’re you from?" You’d say, "Detroit." In these five stories there is revealed a "Detroit" outsiders may not know about, or do know, but do not care to acknowledge, because what is exposed hits so close to home, wherever "home" might be…Natives of Detroit are people just like the rest of us, but, in here, between the pages of this work, the natives are restless and are given reign to exorcise their demons. Like the three neighborhood friends (Larry, Cliff and Kevin) in Moral Dilemma—they are forced to answer the question, "Is rape worse than death?" In Pride’s Bouquet, Mrs. Joy Hartley experiences, "firsthand…the odorous condition stubborn pride can bring about." She decides her husband, John, should wear a diaper, because, "there are no ’loincloths’ at any drugstore…or anywhere else for that matter!" And so it goes. In the story, Mountain out of a Molehill, Chris Stiegel takes the growth on his little finger and turns the "wart-thingy" into a mountain. And, whereas Theresa, in the story, Theresa and the Court, is of the opinion that the court leadership can "go to hell," and goes about doing her job in her own way, in order to survive the streets where her job, as a probation officer, ultimately takes place…yet she feels powerless against the cancer growing inside her body. And then there is Jacqui, in the story, Discovery. No longer a victim of bullying, she travels to Peru, in South America, and discovers a bully of her own design.

Nine Faces of Love is a collection of love story from a National Best Selling Novelist described by Publishers Weekly as follows. "McCann’s Strength lies in his ability to weave an engaging tale from the lives of ordinary folk.” The plot lines are intriguing, the characters memorable and the stories stay with you long after the stories end. Nine Faces of Love displays the bare-bones prose style for which Novelist, Timmothy B. McCann is famous. In a collection of works that span over twenty years, we see the evolving of an artist, a kaleidoscope of emotions and, as the title portrays, nine different faces of the much sought after emotion we call love. The book starts with a non-fiction homage to a woman he met on his first national book tour entitled No Ordinary Pain. It was a piece originally penned for Chicken Soup for the African American Soul, but was never published due to the author’s decision that the story was just too personal to release at that time. It’s a story of a love that is fraught with the perils of normal relational ups and down but culminates in an ending that will leave you breathless. It’s a great piece to start such a roller coaster of emotions. There are three delightful stories that deal with love from a different perspective. It’s a love that is almost shared in the story The Imperfect Date. A story about a man who is recently widowed, and is trying to reconnect with who he is after he discovers the only woman he ever loved—never loved him. There’s a story entitled Thanks for What Could Have Been, about a woman who has spent her life waiting for the next bus. A woman wondering what her life could have been. And there’s a story entitled Him and Her. A whimsical look at love through the eyes of a college student who is “smitten” by a woman who marries the school jock and he later becomes one of the most famous men in the world. There is also a piece he wrote 48 hours before the publishing deadline entitled "Why We Make Love." Its the story of two journalist who have been married for only a month and are forced to separate due to an overseas assignment. The authors goal was to wrote an erotic love story without sex. You will find this the hottest non sexual love story you may have ever read. And there is a story entitled "One Thousand Words," with an ending that may leave you speechless. Lastly there’s the deeply personal story entitled Daddy Mom and another one entitled One Witness. In Daddy Mom we read a non-fictional account of the travails of single fatherhood. It’s the anatomy of a fathers love. And in One Witness, we read an extended excerpt of the author’s next novel. In this aspect of love we see what happens when love goes dark. Very dark and very violent. Each story is written with heart, yet none of the stories are mired by the clichd or melodramatic tricks and tools of the trade. The author pushes the envelope with carefully crafted characters that will become a part of you and prose that will make you want to speak the words aloud. These stories bear careful re-reading, like any work of art. McCann is an author that can have you laughing aloud on one page and crying on the next. Like an author given a paint pallet containing all of the colors of the rainbow, he endeavors to push every emotion within you, as he shows you Nine Faces of Love.

One Hour To Wealth was written in response to the last four years of my life. I was looking at how I could generate extra income due to the instability of the job market. Everything I saw about business discussed people who already made six figures and decided to take out a second mortgage on their half a million dollar home. I searched and searched looking for books about secrets and visions, but none of these books really gave me the direction I needed. There was nothing that taught a person from a single parent household, who was also a first generation college graduate with school loans, how to take a great idea and begin to make it happen. I decided in 2008 to document my own personal journey and then I created 25 Key Points that I have been using to launch my own entrepreneurial efforts. After three years of writing, I finally feel that One Hour to Wealth is a book that both the everyday person and the current business owner can pick up and find interesting direction for starting a venture. Instead of giving advice that is a repeat of everything in all of the books that are already out there, I actually give a detailed step by step workshop in book form and then I support it with my Key Points to help keep you motivated. The book details my own problems with debt and how I learned to deal with it. I think by giving you my story, you will be able to see similarities in your own life. I feel that this personal connection will give you the motivation to continue when things get difficult for you. While there are richer people out there, better business men, people who can show you better homes and cars, my life is full of the wealth that I think all people seek and all people deserve.

You refuse to give up and let them go. Okay. Now, what’s next? For starters, you must change the way you think when you’re in love with a commitment phobe because, unlike someone who’s looking for longevity in a relationship, the person you love is afraid of commitment. Therefore, they’ll use control and deception as manipulative tools to maintain distance in the relationship. Everything you do indicates you’re fully committed. That’s normally a wonderful thing, but for commitment phobes, that’s a problem. In a strange way, you understand them and love their unpredictable ways. One moment, they’re cold; the next, it’s as if someone turned on the heater of love, and you’ve forgotten that you’re dealing with a commitment phobe. If you really want to make your relationship work, you’ll have to meet them halfway. If you press them too hard for a change in behavior, they’ll keep their distance. Learn to back off and stop worrying. The less you stress, the more they’ll stress over you. That’s the first step to handling your commitment phobic lover. There are many other steps that ll need to be taken, but the first step sets the tone and lets your partner know who’s in charge! Sabotage will teach you how to handle a commitment phobe so you can win at love.

After living many years with his wife and three children in Los Angeles, he has grown weary of the West Coast lifestyle. He returns to his roots, believing he and his family can have a fresh go of it and that good times will be promised to them from here on out. Little does Saint know his hunger for the concrete jungle is not steeped in mere nostalgia and home sickness no, there is a much larger picture at play and the artists painting the landscape are ones he simply cannot say no to. He is thrust into an assignment, one that causes him serious pause, but in typical Saint fashion, he realizes he MUST step up to the plate. In so doing, he uncloaks the city’s dirty, hidden secrets underground workings of Good and Evil and unbeknownst to him, he is seated in the center of it.

    Worst of all, the enemy knows more about Saint than Saint at times knows of himself. All the while his family is going through tremendous changes and challenges that seem to have no end in sight. His children are maturing in age and their gifts, sometimes receiving painful life lessons. Xenia tries to keep her head above water at the side of her soulmate, husband, lover, father of her children, and Angel Child. This time, however, being by his side is simply not enough. The challenges roll in harder and more brutally, forcing Saint’s Queen to step in front of her man and take control of a situation that threatens their marriage and even the world. Saint has received a heaping helping of tough love from New York but realizes it is better to have loved and lost than to have never had the Big Apple kiss him at all. When is all said and done, who will wear the golden crown? Who will remain standing and who will be six feet under? And most importantly, will his Queen be there in the end to give him the love that he needs? Jump into the fifth installment of the Saintseries to find out!

Please note: This is the fourth installment of the Saint series. Though this book can be read as a stand-alone, the reader would benefit from reading the previous books in chronological order: "The Naughty Sins of a Saint," "When Saint Goes Marching In," and "Saved and SAINTified." This book features adult themes, language and subject matters which some readers may find objectionable. This is the first half of the book "Saint’s Sacrament - Sins of the Father." At long last, Saint enjoys comfortable living in Los Angeles, relishing the time with his Queen, his sons and his little Princess, the newest addition, Isis. Just as they are settling into a pattern of predictability, the good times do not go unchallenged. Despite her busy schedule, Xenia’s career has reached an epic level, bursting through the glass ceiling she is now featured on daytime television. She accepts the job with Saint’s blessing, only to discover an old flame is pulling the strings behind the scenes like a puppet master To make matters worse, Saint’s career is in jeopardy as a devious multi-tiered plot unfolds, swallowing his resolve and testing his constitution. Now, with Lawrence and Jagger at his side and the sage advice of his father, he must come face to face with not one, but three entities that have come together, masterminding a plot to seek and destroy the man and everything he’s worked so hard to build. This is a tale of corruption, broken hearts, and evil deeds come home to roost, and the love of a husband, father, son and friend being tested to the limit. When the dust of Hell clears, who will be the last man standing?

Chapter One Josiah Seth Carmichael She was always the expressive one, the girl who starred in just about every drama production imaginable. We didn’t go to the same high school; she wouldn’t recognize me. But I remembered her. It was during one of my adventures to snag a girl that I found myself sitting in the school auditorium, watching a production of West Side Story. I saw it once with my brother Jonathan when we were kids, and I knew from the start that I liked it. Minus the dancing, singing, and love story, there was action, tough guys who fought for their turf. That’s all I needed. If it was any other play than West Side Story, I probably wouldn’t have even thought about attending—cute girl or not…

Silence Is Not Always Golden: A Poetic Revolution is a collection of poetry that is defying the norm. The title was inspired by the Black Panther Party’s Huey Newton’s quote, "You can jail a Revolutionary, but you can’t jail the Revolution." Instead of writing what people want to hear, I wrote what people need to hear. The truth! Sometimes the truth can be beautiful and sometimes it can be ugly. My words and my voice are my weapons and I have to speak up on my beliefs. Other people may not feel as powerful to speak up so I speak up for them. I could not sit there and not say anything. I was taught that you cannot do what everyone else wants; you have to do what YOU want. To be YOU is as original as there can be and people will try to put you down because you are different. I say try because only YOU can let them. There is more to life than making a living and surviving. You must fulfill your purpose by pursuing your dreams because if you do not, life will pass you by. My words are my way of fulfilling my purpose because I am making my dream a reality and I am showing you that you can do the same.

Silence Is Not Always Golden: The Power of Spoken Words is a collection of poetry that is defying the norm. Written words have power because anyone can refer to them. However, spoken words are more powerful because the words are brought to life once they leave the body or a piece of paper. Instead of writing what people want to hear, I wrote what people need to hear. The truth! Sometimes the truth can be beautiful and sometimes it can be ugly. My words and my voice are my weapons and I have to speak up on my beliefs. Other people may not feel as powerful to speak up so I speak up for them. I could not sit there and not say anything. I was taught that you cannot do what everyone else wants; you have to do what YOU want. To be YOU is as original as there can be and people will try to put you down because you are different. I say try because only YOU can let them. My words are my way of fulfilling my purpose because I am making my dream a reality and I am showing you that you can do the same. This edition is slightly different from Silence Is Not Always Golden: A Poetic Revolution because there are clean versions of the poems and a few new poems that were written after I published it.

Institutional Freedom

I’m a prisoner of an institution
Not the prison system
But institution of higher learning
They got me tied down and bound
I can’t be free
They keep coming after me financially
Even with the degrees
Jobs and businesses don’t take me seriously
They look at my resume
And toss it to the side
You could’ve sworn that they
Saw that I went to San Quentin or some penitentiary
They saw two rival prestigious universities
And they asked me, “Who do you represent?”
I didn’t go to them schools for the sports
You act like I’m in a gang and I have to claim turf
I proudly wear my school shirts
But I might as well be wearing
Prison identification numbers
In actuality, I’m in the same boat
As the person that went to prison
Thing is, they’ll pick them before me
Just because they can pay them way less
How is it that I’m competing for the same jobs
With ex-cons and I was told that my education is the key
Key to what?!
Being treated like I did something wrong
Yeah, I peeped that I was the bottom 1% at them schools
Only 20-50 of us graduating out of a couple of thousands?
Now these jobs looking at me like I didn’t earn my papers
Like the schools were doing me a favor letting me graduate
They’re working together to keep me tied down and bound
That’s what they are: institutions
Keeping me a prisoner in another form
They don’t have control over my mind
I’m Andy Dufresne
Slowly chipping away at the wall
If it takes me 5, 10, 20 years to get out
So be it!
They don’t know that I have a plan
Not to be a prisoner of a company
Nobody’s gonna be telling me when to eat, sleep, work
They’ll keep transferring me from prison to prison
Until I’m old enough to collect social security
And all that hard work was just a waste of my life
When I’m out, I’m gonna be so long gone
And chilling with hella paper
I’m young enough to break free
And do as I please!

Read Detailed Book Description

Smelling Herself is told through the voice of Bernadine, a precocious eleven-year-old wordsmith. Being an African American girl and living in West Oakland projects in 1964 can be a vulnerable and scary affair. Bernadine's convinced that the solution to her predicament is to grow up. But she soon discovers that growing up is more complicated than she expected.

Though her community is loving-as is her mother and father-her environment is anything but child-friendly with kids getting shot by cops and others beating up their classmates in the tunnel that she has to pass through every day to and from school.

Her precarious sense of well-being begins to unravel when Jessie Mae, a girl not much older than she, moves into the apartment above hers and Bernadine discovers the child is being abused.

Fearless Bernadine makes it her mission to save Jessie Mae as though she's saving herself and every other child who lives with constant threats, though the harder she tries to save Jessie Mae, the more her loved ones are put in danger.

Smelling Herself is imbued with Bernadine's humor, intelligence, and kindred love, as Terris McMahan Grimes unflinchingly investigate-through the eyes of a quick-witted child-what it means to navigate dangerous times without fully understanding the world she lives in. It's the story of childhood's brazen hopes and hindrances.

Soft is the New Power: Embracing Your Feminine Edge to Win in Love & Life by Deya “Direct” Smith

Women have an innate power to attract amazing relationships through understanding and acceptance coupled with the ability to approach life with a feminine touch. With her latest book Soft is the New Power Deya Smith encourages readers to step out of their comfort zone and take a stronger, but softer position to gain what they want.

Why did you write this book?

I wrote this book for several reasons. The main reason is that I want to encourage women to be savvy and strategic about how we use the tools of communication to attract and influence. This is particularly true for Black women who are boxed in as all the same and are unfairly branded as loud and confrontational. Similar to how financial experts advise us to diversify our portfolios, I am advising and providing tools to support us in becoming wiser about diversifying our communication portfolios.

Please explain the title Soft is the New Power.

The idea is that we can shift our perspective on what it means to be soft and feminine. There is nothing weak about being the softer sex. In fact, it’s extremely powerful if you know how to use it strategically to authentically get want you want and need. We don’t need to win like men because we can do extremely well by winning as women. I share in the book:

One day, while in a heated argument with an ex, I enjoyed verbal sparring, and debated for fun, thus the moniker “direct” was created; however, on this particular day my ego was crushed when my ex told me something that really hit a nerve. Regarding my tough-as-nails demeanor he said, “If I wanted to date a man, then I would be with one. You will never be as hard as a man so stop trying…” Honestly, I didn’t want to be a hard woman. Like everyone else, I wanted a safe place to be soft and let my guard down, but I had forgotten how. I had some soul searching to do. The first thing I realized was that I looked soft and feminine on the outside, but my energy, my heart and sometimes my mind was more hard and closed off than I was comfortable admitting. Slowly, the soft journey of discovery began. With my newest book, I impress upon women to knock down the hard walls and allow the soft layers within to bloom.

What do you hope readers will glean from reading your book?

I focus on two big concepts: The Soft Strategy and The Secret Power of a Man Whisperer. The Soft Strategy explains the concept of soft power and reveal why it’s a game changer. The Secret Power of a Man Whisperer will actively help the reader apply the principles of soft power in her love life. I want readers to walk away understanding the power that they possess to communicate effectively and regain the tools needed to connect to a man’s heart. This book will also help: Exit masculine-mode & enter into your feminine energy;

  • Trust in God and oneself;
  • Experience deeper intimacy and connections;
  • Learn the Art of Becoming a ‘Man Whisperer’;
  • Attract more love, happiness & success

As food for thought and entertainment, how would your life had been different if you had grown up, learned and gained the knowledge, logic and intellect of Doctors, Lawyers and Ph. D's. while you were growing up? What different life choices and decisions would you have pursued and made that would have delivered you from a life of average poverty, unfulfillment, and social rejection to greater prosperity, success and social acceptance?

I ask this because essentially, our society functions at a certain high-leveled knowledge and logic, and when someone hasn't fortified or developed that intellectual foundation at that level of function and ability, what's missing causes a measurable gap of ignorance, dysfunction and disposition between them and those that have been developed to that level of function and ability. If you aren't fortified at that level, those who are well-developed at that high level of function in society are basically able to hear the ignorance in your speech when you talk, write, or outwardly use your reasoning skills to make choices from moment-to-moment daily.

So stop standing by and watching those who know that knowledge and logic better than you do outdo you on life's stage. Know that you can do better. Realistically, it's never too late to take the necessary steps to give yourself a leg up, a boost and a brand new start in life. We all experience countless waves of new opportunities, and with those  new opportunities come waves of new choices, chances, and options.

Surrogate Re-Parenting I, helped to fortify your basic foundation on a fundamental level and now Surrogate Re-Parenting II A.K.A. Get Your Mind Right II will take you much higher and much deeper on your empowering journey toward greater intellectual growth, development and success.

This empowering self-help book is like a mental multivitamin booster shot, providing you with high-level knowledge and concepts that will make you more consciously and intellectually complete. This book helps to fill the gap that often becomes socially and culturally apparent.
Even if you were raised by great parents, if they weren’t doctors, lawyers, and PhDs, then they probably didn’t have the knowledge base and social sophistication to prepare you to compete against the more socially advantaged in today’s age of information, technology, and ideas. Surrogate Re-Parenting offers the rock-solid foundation of intellectual and social nurturing that every person needs to not only measure up, but also surpass the competition.
Filled with helpful, witty, entertaining, and mentally fortifying concepts, ideas, and information, this anthology of wisdom for modern-day life deals with the whys, not just the whats, surrounding these concepts and ideas, breaking them down to a level that’s easy for anyone to understand.
So, if you’re tired of being dumped, replaced, used, rejected, overlooked, and taken as a joke, while other people enjoy being accepted, selected, connected, and respected, this info is for you. If you’re tired of feeling insecure in the presence of those who have more intellectual wisdom to offer, this book is for you. If you’re tired of being left standing alone, while others are chosen because of the intellectual things that others know that you don’t, this book is for you. If you’re tired of being dumped for someone who is more mature, who obviously has greater knowledge and wisdom, this book is for you. If you’re tired of being seen as dumb, senseless, and stupid by others, when you open your mouth to share what’s on your mind, this book is for you. If you know what you want to say, but don’t have the words to help you say it, this book is for you. The information held between these two coversis the real reason why and how men and women choose who to commit and get married to, because this set of high-level information is what they look for in those that they choose to help them nurture, discipline and raise their children.
If you don’t know it, you can’t teach it. If you know it, but can’t put it into useful words, then you can’t share it.
If you’re tired of being outclassed and outranked while others move ahead, get picked, promoted, and pass you by, this book is for you. The one who knows the most gets the post. And for those coming from the hood, if you know what I mean, the info in this book is designed to help cause personal transformation. It will get you ready for the life that you want, not just the life that you have.
Surrogate Reparenting: A.K.A. Get Your Mind Right, is already being called the "family reunion" book. This is because people are getting the book, and passing it around, to the members of their family, before the family reunion takes place. People are doing this so that the whole family will all be on a much higher intellectual level, for taking in the knowledge and logic of Doctors, Lawyers, and Ph.Ds. By having this knowledge in common, the dialogue will help them all to get past some family issues and communicate better, which can cause the family to be able to advance and achieve more, on a whole, which is what family reunions are really supposed to be about anyway.
So, don’t just allow those who have a leg up because of circumstances of birth sideline you in your personal and professional life. Surrogate Re-Parenting can help you gain the confidence, confirmation, and cerebral strength that will carry you to higher levels of happiness and success.

Welcome to the sleepy, all-Black southern town of Bledsoe, where Colored residents proudly declare “ain’t nothing white here ‘cept milk and teeth.” It’s 1935. A press-and-curl costs a quarter. Records play on phonographs. And a telephone is a luxury. Meet twenty-three-year-old Taffy Bledsoe Freeman. She doesn’t need her gift of second sight to know her “mockery of a marriage” to a man twice her age is far from good. After a seven-year exile Up North, Taffy travels down-home to the small town bearing her family’s name, plotting her escape from a marriage not worth the price of a press-and-curl. She only needs to retrieve the son her husband banished to her parents’ care, before boarding a train headed for the Windy City filled with liberty and opportunity. Instead, Taffy stumbles into Roam Ellis: the man Taffy meant to marry. Twenty-six-year-old Roam Ellis is a “broad-shouldered, hard-bodied” Pullman porter riding the rails coast-to-coast, outrunning the bitter heartbreak Taffy left behind. Now, after a seven-year absence, Roam is face-to-face with his first love. Anger ignites. Old wounds are exposed. But when pain subsides, passion rises, thrusting Taffy and Roam into a hurricane of buried secrets and lies. Reminiscent of the works of Bernice McFadden, Bertice Berry, and Andrea Smith (The Sisterhood of Blackberry Corner) this Historical Romance is bathed in southern lore and sweeping imagery.

But by the 1970s, the project has seriously deteriorated into violence, drugs and poverty. Despite its downfalls, Desire remained a neighborhood fueled by the people, and their vibrant energy and love of fun transcending their oppressive surroundings. But it’s still no place for a young boy, and all Cheekie wants is to get out. Described through his young voice, the neglect and the nurturing, the violence and the inspiration of Desire come alive as Cheekie grows into manhood, finally escapes and forges ahead on an inspiring journey toward personal and professional success.

The Black Poverty Cycle and How to End It is about how three different facts of life for African-Americans are intertwined and mutually reinforcing: lack of educational opportunities, poverty, and mass incarceration. All three are rooted in the historic racial prejudices of White America. Together they immobilize the great majority of African-Americans at the bottom of the income and wealth scales: below, rather than within, the increasingly stratified class system in which other Americans live. Finally, The Black Poverty Cycle and How to End It is about how to use the very connections among these facts of life to change them and thus improve the lives of African-Americans and with them the lives of all Americans.

Authored by Khalid el-Hakim and Dr. Derrick Jenkins, The Center of the Movement: Collecting Hip Hop Memorabilia is a journey through the personal archives of the Black History 101 Mobile Museum’s hip hop artifacts. This journey, narrated by its curator and collector Khalid el-Hakim, a Detroit native, exhibits a lifetime commitment to preserving the cultural relevance of this thing called "hip hop." As hip hop developed and grew, el-Hakim, a life-long hip hop head, grew and developed alongside the culture gleaning all that spoke to him through his journey. Now these hundreds of collectibles are intended to speak to the reader. With personal narratives on each item giving background, significance, and even a value, the items are contextualized and brought to life in personal ways chronicling one of the paths taken in the expanse of hip hop which fostered the birth, rise, and increase of hip hop in the Motor City and ultimately leading to many of the Black History 101 Mobile Museum collection pieces. Through his many travels, with the museum and as one of the vanguards of black cultural preservation, el-Hakim has befriended many artists, collectors, industry insiders, and many others whose voices are heard in the book through interviews, essays, poems, and other artistic expressions, further adding new layers of contexts and depth to the chapters. The Center of the Movement (named after a song on J Dilla’s "Rebirth of Detroit" album) is a fun, informative, and fascinating view into the little known world of hip hop memorabilia collecting and those who do it and have done it for years and the stories of their process of gathering and preserving, as well as an all access entre into the Black History 101 Mobile Museum’s hip hop artifacts and the stories behind them.

Damian was the son of a Christian minister. As a child he was raised according the dictates of the Christian faith, and instilled with the ideals that would make him a true follower of Jesus. He lived his life in a humble manner in which he helped people, and avoided excess. But after his righteous father was targeted by a corrupt White politician because he was unapologetically committed to helping less-fortunate Black people, a change would soon occur within Damian.

Instead of adhering to the tenets by which he had been raised, Damian became a slave to the decadent ways of American society. Even though the United States of America was considered to be a Christian nation by misinformed people, it was a bastion of sin in which sex, greed, and power were lusted after. Those desires became the Gods of many Americans. And it was to those Gods that they worshipped.

As Damian underwent a metamorphosis, his religion and his family became less important to him. His betrayal of those formerly important aspects of his life led to the weakening of his psyche. In that state, he lost track of who he was as a person, and who he should be as a Black man, father, husband, and minister. But when he realized the depravity of his ways, people who had been harmed by his behavior would seek retribution.

Although the God of Christianity was said to be forgiving of the hypocrites who followed it, the righteous people who were aware of the realities of life would not be as accommodating of Damian’s behavior.

It is the 1830s, and Fima and her mother are rice traders on the West Coast of Africa in the Sherbro River area: a network of mouths of rivers, mangrove mudflats and shifting sandbars where traders can load captives in secret onto vessels whose captains take them across the Atlantic for sale as slaves on auction blocks. Sherbro’s rich agricultural hinterland can produce enough rice to maintain the thousands of slaves kept captive in barracoons during the weeks and months they are waiting to be loaded onto the slave vessels. It also produces enough rice to provision the slave vessels for their transatlantic crossings. Fima dreams of one day owning her own rice business in Sherbro, on her own terms. But when a family crisis occurs and her mother suddenly departs on foot for upcountry, she leaves Fima on her own sooner than she had expected. She also leaves her with an important family heirloom to guard. Fima is excited, and confident she will succeed. Little does she know, however, that people are not always what they appear . . . .

Reviewer’s Choice, Midwest Book Review: "The Heritage Keeper is an historical novel based on the true experience of a girl growing up on the West African coast in the 1830s in what is now called Sierra Leone.

In a time of religious upheaval and civil war in a country where men of different faiths can never be brothers, three slaves must keep a date with destiny. Death, destruction and the persecution of an entire nation at the hands of the Roman army set the stage for "The Idumean Covenant: A Novel of the Fall of Jerusalem." Abraham’s twin grandsons, Jacob and Esau, were bitter enemies. Jacob’s descendants, the Judeans become God’s chosen people and Esau’s descendants, the Idumeans, become the people that God hated and despised.God’s prophets tell the Judeans, Isaiah and Ezehiel, to rob and even kill Idumeans. Inexplicably, however, Titus Flavius Josephus relates in his Jewish Wars that the insurrectionists against Rome called upon the Idumeans for support in order to prevent the Judean sect of Sadducees from turning Jerusalem over to the Romans. Can it be that the revered historian had a secret agenda? The Idumean Covenant is a locomotive taking the intelligent reader on a historical adventure of cynical plots, unconventional alliances and impossible loves pitting the most powerful men of the Roman Empire against each other.

Gangbanging had been a destructive force in Los Angeles County for nearly thirty years, and resulted in the murders of thousands of Black and Hispanic males. As the millennium approached, gang wars between Bloods, Crips, and different Crip factions continued to harm the Black community. Violent crime resulted in the forced removal of Black males from the Black community through murder and incarceration. And despite the negativity caused by gangbanging, Black youth continued to enter that lifestyle.

Antoine Edwards was raised in the City of Hawthorne, which was one of 88 cities in Los Angeles County. He never knew his father, and his mother was addicted to crack cocaine. His grandmother raised him, and although she wanted the best for him, her plan was unable to compete with the negativity that surrounded them.

Before Antoine became a teenager, he joined the local street gang. The influence of the older members of the gang turned him into an adolescent robber and killer. He embodied the gangster lifestyle and sought to be a successful gangbanger instead of a productive, law-abiding member of society. Antoine cared little about the harm his actions caused his people and community. But he was eventually forced to suffer the consequences of his actions, and when that occurred, it was too late for his life to be redeemed.

The PHOENIX Files Trilogy Heat Level: Sensual/ Steamy (Love scenes are present but are NOT graphic) Time Period: Contemporary Paranormal Romance Length: 87,600 words ~PHOENIX Files- Fierce fights beneath the southern city lights.~ From the city streets to City Hall, from the “All American City” of Fayetteville to the "City of Oaks", (Raleigh), North Carolina is rife with crime and corruption. Law enforcement, understaffed and overextended, do their best to stem the growth of violence and vice. But when they find themselves unable to break the case, they turn to a shadowy enterprise that utilizes the unique talents of the most gifted citizens among us: PHOENIX. The organization was founded in 1972 by Lt. J.T. "Phoenix" Pierce, a veteran of the Vietnam war and a proponent of the use of powers such as telekinesis, shape-shifting, and sorcery for the good of the people. Darkness Rising: City council secretary Lalah Norris is propelled into the center of a scandal. Born of two African American parents with the panthera trait, Lalah’s a no-nonsense woman who, when she finds out about the money laundering ways of the city’s assistant manager Dell Christopher, will risk her job to see him pay for his crimes. Little does she know, the loss of her job will be the least of her worries. When she refuses to be intimidated by Dell’s thug, she’s kidnapped and locked away. Rescue comes in the form of a mysterious Chinese man, Junjie Yu, but Lalah finds herself being taken against her will for a second time. When the night is over, she’s forced to join PHOENIX, a covert organization that assists law enforcement on the Federal, state and local level through the use of shifters, sorcerers, and all manner of ’gifted individuals.’ But which will be more dangerous: her new role in the secret organization, or her burning attraction to Junjie? Embrace the Night: John Groves is a professor of World History in Raleigh by day. But outside the world of academia, he uses his special talents as a telekinetic to fight crime as a member of PHOENIX. He’s strong, steady, and accustomed to being in charge, in both his careers and his personal life. Having lived on his own since the age of 17, he’s never had to bow to anyone’s commands since childhood- especially not a woman. Tatiana Yates owns a beauty shop in downtown Durham. After leaving the hot curlers and shampoo bowl behind, she releases the tigress within, running free in the forests around RTP. And ripping the bad guys a new one as a seasoned PHOENIX operative. She worked hard to study cosmetology, gain experience in the field, and move from employee to businesswoman. She’s worked her way up the PHOENIX ranks to lieutenant, and won’t be disrespected by anyone. Midnight’s Serenade: Dr. Le’Kisha Byrd, is a modern-day succubus and brilliant scientist, who just created something that will have a lasting effect on world affairs. It’s the culmination of years of hard work and research- but now that’s she’s completed it, everyone wants to get their hands on it- including those who would use it for evil. Protecting her work, as well as her own life, is getting to be too much for even her sharp mind. So she confides in an old family friend. Little does she know, he intends to arrange protection for her, whether she likes it or not. Marcelo Spirelli’s day job is landscaping for his own business. When he puts away his equipment, he serves the greater good as a PHOENIX operative, where his skills at sorcery are always a valuable asset. He takes his PHOENIX work very seriously, and doesn’t play games when he’s on the job When he’s assigned his first solo mission- protecting Dr. Byrd from her many enemies, he’s not exactly thrilled. A past experience has shaded his opinion of her. To his mind, succubi can’t be trusted, and it will take a hell of a lot for him to alter his belief.

From the moment the bride-elect is introduced to her future mother-in-law, Mom assesses everything about her from the mints she pops in her mouth, the size shoe she wears, the outdated or “whorish” clothing she chooses, to any other little thing Mom dislikes and that causes her to break out in hives.

This can be devastating for daughters-in-law who have missed the clues to Mama’s deceptive, manipulative, controlling, seductive, entrapping and/or betraying ways. Good old Mom is not going to let her son out of her sight or allow another woman (who happens to be his wife) control him. A mother-in-law that is a six lays down the law early on, which many daughters-in-law tend to ignore. My intentions are to teach you how to manage the relationship with your mother-in-law so she does not destroy your marriage.

Tragedy is just life’s way of using you for a greater good if you don’t become affected, infected, devastated or worse lifeless.

It’s simple enough yet many people never make those connections needed in life or pay attention to many of their life experiences in order to work out their situation or spark the true meaning of change. The only time they can bring forth change is at the worst time of their life as long as they’re not trapped by grief, devastation or lost. How do you grab the attention of God, the creator or for some the Universe without becoming a victim of what was designed to make you great? You do so by activating the HBCCR within you.

Every Sunday in black churches across America collection plates are passed and parishioners insert their tithes and offerings. The very next day, as those funds are deposited in church bank accounts, the transfer of millions of dollars occurs as those funds are placed in financial institutions that are not owned by African Americans. However, the weekend’s wealth transfer does not end there. It continues throughout the remainder of the week as the majority of mortgage companies, landlords, insurance companies, and vendors most black churches utilize are also not African American-owned. This wealth transfer, estimated at billions of dollars per year, occurs largely unconsciously but its impact is enormous. The transfer would not be so problematic if a reciprocating money stream was flowing from other communities into black-owned enterprises. In other words, if churches from other ethnic groups were collecting funds each weekend and transferring them to black-owned banks and businesses, the two realities would be balanced, with essentially one cancelling out the other. Instead all of the funds are moving in one direction—away from black communities and entrepreneurs. This book is the second installment in a series on group economics, the missing link and Achilles heel of African-American economic progress. The first installment, Why African Americans Can’t Get Ahead: And How We Can Solve It With Group Economics, was published in 2008. The purpose of this book is to explore the economic impact of the transfer of wealth away from black communities via the black church, its impact on those communities, and strategies to reverse this trend.

In the year 2015 there’s this saying, ’when frogs grow feet.’ The meaning behind this phrase is similar to ’a snowball’s chance in hell’ and to that of ’when hell freezes over.’ In jail and with nothing better to do, Malcolm George was leaning toward naming his firs novel ’when frogs grow feet’ but so far hadn’t made a firm commitment to any title… ’When Frogs Grow Feet’ (or WFGF for short) is the next ’Great American Novel.’ Exposing the human condition—it paints a broad stroke of human frailty in the vein of such predecessors as ’Catcher in the Rye,’ by J.D. Salinger and the works of Henry Miller; in particular, some readers ’may see’ a resemblance to Miller’s ’Tropic of Capricorn’ as WFGF lays claim to a sexual appetite that might conjure up that controversial work. Celebrating sexual intercourse, from its kinky, outrageous manifestations to its profound impact on the human psyche, can be found harpooning its way throughout WFGF…In WFGF the morally contentious issue of abortion is promulgated through the existence of ’Un-aborted’ babies (or UABs for short). The character, Godiva Jones, is not a typical UAB instead she stands out as a ’problem child.’ She’s a girl that when we first meet her, is on probation for a string of petty thefts. As a child that ’was not supposed to be born’ the reader gets to know ’her purpose in life.’ We see Godiva as she comes to ’hate’ on her real name, which is Keisha. Other ’relationship’ issues share the limelight with the Un-aborted, notably ’the war between the sexes.’ Sexual relations between Malcolm the male protagonist, and Vanessa, who is a local entrepreneur and proprietor of several high-end boutique shops, has its ups and downs. Vanessa represents feminism in its ’triumphant stage’ as women in the year 2015 ’runs the show.’ Men feel marginalized, are resentful. Whereas Vanessa is naturally a feminist, Malcolm on the other hand is a ’masculinist’ and a member in good standing with the ’International Brotherhood of Steele Pandas.’ WFGF is told mostly from Malcolm’s point of view, but his opinion is often derided by his many women friends. While Malcolm and Vanessa battle back and forth over who will be the ’alpha’ in their relationship, the mostly accepted sentiment of the day is that women are no longer the underdog in society; men are…or at least think of themselves as underdogs. To fight ’the feeling’ organizations like the Brotherhood began to proliferate in order to defend ’men’s rights.’ The mega issue surrounding Mr. Miller’s ’…Capricorn’ was ’first amendment rights.’ ’The Biggie’ in ’Frogs…’ is abortion. The ’solution’ is the advent of ’Un-aborted babies.’ ’When Frogs Grow Feet’ is G. Louis Jackson’s second work of fiction. He is also author of ’Natives of Detroit,’ a collection of short fiction.

Dr. Tiffany Newman says it best "This is the ultimate woman’s encyclopedia for achieving self respect and inner merit while exploring the intricacies of dating, in pursuit of a good man." This book tells all from men’s point of view, it makes no apologies and most of all it suggests fundamental changes that women must make on an individual and collective level to begin to unravel the brainwashing that has so far crippled them mentally and emotionally. The subject is in itself controversial as it pits gender against gender and it challenges women to look at themselves honestly and understand how men view them, then make realistic choices about the social gender issues that separate them from what they yearn for. This book gives women permission to break with protocol and step outside of the box in order to succeed at finding a worthwhile life mate.

This book is part of The Integrated Life series. THE CONCEPT: "In the pursuit of economic survival, bodily sustenance and social acceptance, people often (1) disregard their passion in order to focus on a practical career, (2) allow their diet to undermine their health, and (3) deny their sexual and gender wiring in order to conform to societal concepts of relationship. Therein lies the majority of unhappiness in our modern life." The solution is to live the integrated life! Take the Integrated Life online test at www.integratedlifetest.com and discover how integrated these areas of your life are! Then, read the book to learn what to do about it! **** THIS BOOK: What if you could actually reverse the deterioration and decline associated with accumulating more years on the planet? What if you could actually grow YOUNGER every day? Well, you can! Reversing aging is possible. Not just the "signs" of aging, but aging itself. Yes, it is possible to actually take the body back to a previous state of health. It is possible to slow the decline, undo specific damage and return to a previous state of health and vitality…to yesterday’s you! Why you need it If you fear getting old before your time. If you fear not having the energy to take care of yourself and your family and other obligations. If you fear not having the mental focus, physical stamina or youthful glow of earlier times, then you need this information to take control of your health and the direction of your life and become one of those people who others say never seem to age;
If you follow even a few of these suggestions, you can keep your skin and hair young eliminate allergies restore your energy improve your complexion remove harmful toxins from the body lose weight increase virility, and more Where it comes from This information is based on a set of truths that have been known for centuries. First among these truths is the fact that the body is coded to heal. Scientists tell us the body regenerates and rejuvenates itself. Cells die and are replaced. Organs replace themselves over the course of years. What’s missing in the equation is simple: our society and its practices simply don’t give the body the resources and rest it needs in order to function optimally. Our society moves us away from pristine conditions and environments that support the body’s healing code. Yesterday’s You shows you how to recreate those internal conditions and external environments in today’s society.

Unless you give your body the specific nutrients it requires and unless you create the environment and conditions that activate and support the body’s healing and rejuvenation code, you will age and experience the same deterioration everyone else you know is experiencing. Get The set of stable truths that inform the protocol A comprehensive list of key foods and supplements A step-by-step "Getting Started" guide An overview of what it will require and what to expect Detailed instructions for all the "secret" practices How to incorporate it into your daily life Client testimonials Even a few recipes!
plus:
informational charts, worksheets, plus a ton of resources (books, videos, websites) for more information, purchasing products and much, much more! If you’re thinking: "I know what I need to be doing…
I just need some strategies for sticking to it!"
This is a set of new habits, food substitutions, preparation tips, all based on a new understanding of your body and how it works. The reason many diets and other protocols don’t work is that they seek to maintain a paradigm of the body and a paradigm of health and healing that is outdated and simply wrong. I start with a whole new paradigm as the foundation and build a new set of habits from the ground up.

Nominated for a 2016 NAACP Image Award

The teen years are challenging ones in an individual’s development, especially for girls. The teen years are pivotal as those are the years when girls can either get tripped up—by making huge mistakes—or move up—by excelling academically. Black teen girls in particular often experience even greater challenges because of the negative messages, labels, and images perpetuated by media, music videos, and popular culture.

Rather than boost the confidence of black teen girls, these negative messages can adversely affect their self-esteem and their concept of self-worth. Low self-esteem can ultimately lead them to internalize these negative labels and make a series of bad choices. By embracing these labels, negative outcomes become a self-fulfilling prophecy for far too many black teen girls.

But black teen girls have the power to reject these negative labels and embrace positive ones. You Are Wonderfully Made: 12 Life-Changing Principles for Teen Girls to Embrace empowers black teen girls with the tools they need to successfully navigate their teen years and avoid the pitfalls that can derail their futures. The book’s title is based loosely on the biblical scripture in Psalm 139:14: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.’ However, the twelve universal principles in this book are not exclusive for those of the Christian faith nor are they only for black teenagers. They can be adopted by any teen girl, regardless of her family background, economic status, ethnicity, or educational achievement level. Each chapter includes a list of exercises and action steps teen girls can utilize to assist them with adopting these principles.

“When she was a child, my love carried a road-map in her hand the way other girls carried handkerchiefs. She always knew the way. Her feet were little wings. And her beautiful head was a compass.” After falling victim to the vicious Philly streets, Reed and RaKeem are victorious. Time has elapsed and the young couple is making waves in only a way that is represented by strength. RaKeem, the young boss, has implemented his name in the game, without touching even an ounce of crack rock. With his girl, Reed, by his side, the couple is on a hunt for money and power. Although the dominant duo is far beyond their years, they both suffer from the same crippling forces of any other partnership, born so prematurely. Deceit and guile linger in their space, impeding their glorious destiny. The urge of separation, lack of communication, and partial influence amongst others arises as both Reed and RaKeem tries desperately to get back to one another. With masked intentions, fleshly temptations threaten to dismantle the bond that is shared between the two, but neither Reed or RaKeem are willing to hand over the thrown.
