    in Books

    You can't choose who you fall in love with...All her life LaToya Morris wanted to get married, have lots of kids and take care of the household like her mother did. Raised in a Christian home in Texas she grew up in a different atmosphere, her father was a preacher and mother a high school teacher. When she moved to Charlotte, NC for college she never thought she'd fall in love with a hood guy like Montrell Johnson. He was everything her parent's warned her against growing up: long dreads, tattoos all over his body, and a rising coke boy in the streets of Charlotte. Yet Montrell opened LaToya's eyes to a different way of life, despite his lifestyle and their differences, and families trying to tear them apart they never separated. Now, five years later they got married and are expecting their first child, everything is going great until Montrell gets arrested and LaToya is alone and pregnant, nothing could prepare LaToya for the ride she is about to endure, Montrell hates he's put her in this situation because the streets have no conscience or love, and hope she's ready.

  • SWAG Presents: Cocaine Smoke and Mirrors with Sunny Giovanni

    in Books

    On this eposide of SWAG Radio, Yara Kaleemah will be chopping it up with Sunny Giovanni.. 
    In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni, or "Gio" as she likes to be called, was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University, you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book before hand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and trans rights, and says: "You can't help who you are, and you damn sure can't help who you love. You should be true to who are, rather than to conform and live the ultimate lie, and live miserable until the day you die." Credited from the poem she penned "Titanium", modeled after her novel.
    Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio, and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up. Even at a random moment. If it makes no sense, see how fast they forget about everything else and wonder what's wrong with you, but end up smiling in the process. It works every time."

  • Interview w/ 82 yr old Pilot, Author & Teacher Gordon Rose!

    in Books

    Gordon is an 82 year old pilot from Michigan. He recently wrote a great "pocket book" called "What's My Benefit". 
    Life is a game and if you’re open to new information you may find refreshing value in Gordon Rose’s pocket guide called "What's My Benefit".
    The question is, can you control your own ego and find the value in any interaction? With a few of Gordon’s principles to guide you, a little willingness and patience, you may find that you can. He makes it easy for you. In your car, in your bag or at your home, you can carry the knowledge he has gathered and carried his whole life, compressed and simplified for maximum readability. But don’t dismiss this as what you might consider a typical self help book. This is an honest and sincerely humorous guide. The underlying message is filled with both humility and humanity, and one that the author has been inspired to write.
    The world around us seems to forget the potential of any given moment and the infinite opportunities. Consider this guide for anyone who is curious to delve into the true potential and climate of any given environment .  This guide is a more moral, modern and much needed rewrite/answer to a Machiavellian approach. Not forgetting Emily Post’s famous writings on etiquette, this pocket guide suggests rules that can help move any generation forward at any pace they wish to select. The decision remains to be yours.
