    Let's Talk Too! Author Yani

    in Books

    I'm your host


    Author Sharnel


     Guest


    Author Yani,


    She wrote her first novel when she was fifteen years old while attending University City High-School. What started out as just a short story to help her cope with the accidental and devastating murder of a friend, turned into a full length, 893 handwritten paged novel after being encouraged to continue writing more by her peers. Years later, A Thug’s Redemption along with its two sequels, became Amazon Best Sellers and featured in Yo! Raps Magazine. Yani had previously been known for her writing through her edgy poetry, which granted her an invitation to the Tri-State’s number 1 Hip-Hop and R&B radio station, Power 99FM, to recite her popular poem “Why Tyrone Can’t Read” in 2001. Since then, Yani has attended open mic nights, reciting her poetry throughout Philadelphia. Yani has been featured on numerous blogs and has made guest appearances on various blog-talk radio shows. She was also a featured author at the 2013 National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas. Yani still resides in Philadelphia with her three children and is working on her sixth novel.

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Best selling author Vanessa Davis Griggs makes her first appearance on the Author Chat Show to discuss her new re-release, Redeeming Waters.


    About the book:


    Redeeming Waters is a story about a mega gospel recording artist named King d.Avid who meets Brianna. Their paths cross again years later and you see them both dealing with some things during that time. As with all of us, we make decisions not realizing how deep the consequences of those actions may take us. This story shows how one decision can begin to snowball into something that’s hard to stop as it gains an avalanche of momentum. People will also learn things when it comes to the biblical telling of David and Bathsheba. 


    About the author:


    An author and motivational speaker who adores the power of words both written and spoken, at the end of 1996 this former BellSouth employee left 18 years of service and stepped out on faith as she pursues her purpose and passion—writing and speaking. Vanessa Davis Griggs resides in Irondale, a community just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Among many recognitions and awards, she’s the 2014 AAMBC Christian Writer of the Year. Vanessa received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition March 2010 from Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. of Georgia. Her novel Forever Soul Ties was a 2012 RT Book Review nominee for Best Multicultural Fiction. The Other Side of Divine received RT Book Review’s highest recognition of 4.5 Stars and Top Pick! and was also an 2013 RT Book Review nominee for Best Multicultural Fiction.

    in Paranormal

    Friday, February 5th  10pm ET / 9pm CT / 7pm PT


    There are mysteries that are so eerie and strange that they boggle the mind for days on end. The case of Elisa Lam is one of them. In February 2013, this 21-year-old student from Vancouver, Canada, was found dead inside the Cecil Hotel’s rooftop water tank in Los Angeles.


    The L.A. County Department of Coroner ruled the death “accidental due to drowning” and said no traces of drugs or alcohol were found during the autopsy. However, there is much more to the story than what is implied by police reports.


    Join Luci and Anthony on the Anniversary of her death as they reveal some of the facts from the case, history of murder, suicide and paranormal activity at the hotel, and some interesting findings about Elisa and the hotel surroundings. It will be a night of mystery and suspense!

    Andrew Graham rejoins Sean Comer and Mark Radulich as they review Peter Jackson's second trip to Middle Earth, The Hobbit.  Since BTR cut off our show 2 weeks ago, we'll spend a few minutes concluding our discussion of Return of the King.  After that we'll dive right into all the pre-production issues that plagued the Hobbit Trilogy.  We'll talk about the special editions and debate whether Jackson should have tried to keep it to 2 movies


    The Hobbit is a film series consisting of three high fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson. They are based on the 1937 novel The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, with large portions of the trilogy inspired by the appendices to The Return of the King, which expand on the story told in The Hobbit, as well as new material and characters written especially for the films. The films are subtitled An Unexpected Journey (2012), The Desolation of Smaug (2013), and The Battle of the Five Armies (2014).
