    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.

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Lyric Benson Ferguson. She's stopping by the Author Chat show to 'chat' about her new book, French Kissing God: A Journey to Enlightenment.


    About the book:


    French Kissing God brings a message of peace, love and Divine-realization while awakening the hearts of anyone seeking a truly mystical existence. The book’s exuberant, pulsating, passionate and visceral verses are the hallmark of author Lyric Benson Fergusson, whose words let us join her on a journey to enlightenment—from the beginning days when she was seeking God to experiences of unimaginable Divine Union and bliss. This powerful collection successfully brings the concept of piety back “down to Earth” in the modern-day playground of spiritual awakening.


    French Kissing God: A Journey to Enlightenment has been endorsed by bestselling authors: Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Jeff Brown, Marci Shimoff, Barnet Bain, Dr. Norman Rosenthal and many others.


    About the author:


    Lyric first emerged from almost a decade of studying consciousness and enlightenment to create her debut album Lyric’s Love Light Revolution, co-produced by her father, actor/director Robby Benson, and her singer/songwriter mother, Karla DeVito. The album is a celebration of Lyric’s wildly eccentric journey into the throes of divine love. All of her lyrics were inspired by and taken directly from the poetry she composed over these very unconventional spiritual years.

    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.

    Author Suzanna Linton: Clara's Return

    in Books

    Suzanna Linton is an alumni of the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities (summer program), college grad with a degree in English, wife, animal lover, and author.  


    She began writing when as little girl. At first, it was poetry but that led to novels. Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern are what made her want to be an author. McCaffrey showed her that women don’t have to be shrinking violets to be in a novel or be a complete goody-goody to be the hero. She grew up in rural South Carolina and continues to live there, in slightly-less-rural Florence. Every now and again, her husband has to remind her they can’t afford more pets. She sobbed like a brokenhearted child when she killed her Betta fish by accident. She loves coffee.
