    Author Spotlight on Hope Exposed with Author Jay Doubleu

    in Books

    Author Jay Doubleu discovered her writing gift in her teen years.  Angrily, writing about her frustration about about life, confusion and her sister’s annoying obsession with vacuum lines in the carpet. As Jay Doubleu began to furiously pen stories about her frustration with her sister's obsession, she realized the stories began to take a life of their own.  The characters began to develop personality and the writing became therapeutic.  The writing became a way to express that which was not easy to speak or understand. 

    That's the key to Author Jay Doubleu and her writing, she has a unique calling to write things that people struggle with verbalizing, sharing or expressing to each other.  So, what was the writer in her supposed to do?  Suddenly it became clear, Author Jay was to be the hand that God could use to speak what He wants to say about every area of our lives, while testifying to others about her imperfect journey to understand Him, and her struggle with forgiveness towards God.  She had been so hurt. How would she trust God again? Her audience will undoubtedly learn from her journey, one that has led her to the door of her purpose: to love everyone, equip others and to inspire God's people by any writer's means necessary. But, it goes even deeper.

    Everything she writes speaks to her very authentic and sincere relationship with God. That relationship is responsible for every word she pens to be genuine, while shedding light on the sea floor of each listener’s heart, mind and spirit. That divine light will expose what attempts to steal one's vitality and hope.  In her upcoming book being released this year "HOPE Exposed”, it will reveal the essence of hope itself.

    Author Spotlight with Author of Reject High Brian L Thompson

    in Books

    On this Episode of The Beautiful Butterfly Show we Welcome Our first sciene fiction Author Brian L. Thompson as we discuss his book "Reject High" 

    MEET OUR GUEST AUTHOR BRIAN L. THOMPSON: With five novels in print, including his highly-successful science-fiction teen
    series, Reject High, Brian Thompson continues to shape his career as a storyteller who fuses high-concept plots with down-to-earth characters. As a child, Brian could always be found drawing superheroes or etching out action stories in a notebook. Leaning on his experience as a well-respected journalist and writer and with his love for science fiction classics, Brian formed Great Nation Publishing, LLC. – an independent publishing company aimed at promoting creative projects with integrity. Its published works include historical fiction novels The Lost Testament (2010), and The Revelation Gate (2011), with the latter landing on Amazon's Top 80 List for Historical Fiction-Africa. With those works under his belt, Brian turned to his first love of science fiction and released the dystopian/speculative fiction work, The Anarchists (2012) and introduced the Reject High series geared towards young adult readers. The Anarchists, Reject High (Book One of the Reject High Series) and Sophomore Freak (Book Two) have garnered a number of positive reviews and endorsements with Forgotten (2015) and Champion, Immortal (2016) on the horizon.    When he is not urging others to pursue their writing passions, Thompson chases his own: preparing for the spring 2015 release of Forgotten, the third installment in the Reject High series, being a full-time high school English/Language Arts teacher, and co-running the day-to-day operations of Great Nation Publishing. A proud graduate of both Morehouse College and Temple University, Thompson and his family live in East Metro Atlanta, Georgia.

    Join us for a lively discussion:

    My first guest will be the youngest black councilman to ever hold office in Michigan. 20-year old Councilman Jewell Jones of Inkster Michigan is my guest.

    We also talk Christmas. As the holidays approach, many are calling for a move to take the materialism out of Christmas by deciding to stay home on black Friday and throughout the holidays. Instead, keep our money in pocket; share a meal and reconcile with family. We will discuss the move to put Christ Jesus back in Christmas in 2015. 

    We also Continue our discussion in education with Jasn Smith of the Hattiesburg Public Schools District, as we explore the controversy over the district bidding process for consultants.

    We'll talk about that and more on Spotlight.
