    ENVISION THIS: You can promote literacy, character building, and your business all in one move by sponsoring "Books for Kids" right in your neighborhood.

    Our guest, Dapo Akers is author of Robin From the Hood. He is one of the authors who writes for Books for Kids, a free book giveaway program run by Performance Strategies Publishing. You can partner with them! Coleen Liebsch of PS Publishing is also with us.  She says, “Rather than "sponsoring" books in the traditional sense, our partners purchase a $4.50 advertisement in the form of a full-color sticker inside the front cover of a Books for Kids book.  The sticker will say "This Book Is A Gift From:" then prominently feature your company's logo and contact information.”

    Dapo, whom we first met through his community building Feel the Ville rap on You-Tube, writes for adolescents.   His Robin From the Hood series deals with the tragic and dehumanizing underworld tales of “hoods” ruled by drug lords and corruption. This Robin, like the familiar folk hero, has a philanthropic mission to rescue his community from doom.

    Other authors in the PS Publishing lineup write for kids of other age and interest levels. Coleen represents this ambitious project to get books that build character into the hands of kids and create a community bond with the local businesses that sponsor those books.

    Welcome to the Featured World of Ink Network here on BlogTalkRadio Wed. August 26, 2015. The
    World of Ink Network brings you shows each week on topics such as books, writing, author interviews, self-help and much more. Your hosts today are Virginia S Grenier and Marsha Cook.

    On today's show, Author Lynn Steward returns to chat about her Dana McGarry series. Lynn Steward spent many years in New York City’s fashion industry in marketing and merchandising, including the development of the first women’s department at a famous men’s clothing store. Through extensive research, and an intimate knowledge of the period, Steward created the characters and stories for a series of five authentic and heartwarming novels about New York in the seventies. A Very Good Life, Steward’s debut novel, was published in March 2014 and twice ranked #1 on Amazon.

    Our show will air live at 6 pm Eastern - 5 pm Central - 3 pm Pacific. As always you can listen to any of our shows on demand, at any time you'd like here on BlogTalkRadio, Facebook or iTunes.

    The series follows Dana McGarry's rise in the fashion industry from buyer at the legendary B. Altman dept. store to the youngest woman owner of a couture house on Seventh Avenus. It may be the dawn of the women's movement, but in the world of women's fashion, there's no sisterly-love.

    You can also follow us at our blog, Facebook and Twitter. The World Of Ink Network has endeavored to create radio shows geared toward excellence in the reading/publishing community.

    Life is Beautiful: How a Lost Girl Became a True, Confident Child of God~

      "Life is Beautiful: How a Lost Girl Became a True, Confident Child of God" takes you on a full journey of trauma, loss, and finally resilience. While on a mission’s trip in Guatemala, a small Cessna Caravan’s engine blows while carrying fourteen passengers. Unfortunately, the Cessna crashes in a remote village, leaving eleven of the fourteen passengers dead. One passenger, Sarah, shares her story in "Life is Beautiful", about the deaths of her father and brother; her mother’s extreme physical and emotional injuries, and Sarah’s self-discovery to accept this new life.

      "Life is Beautiful", however, is more than a story about an airplane crash. "Life is Beautiful" shares the personal struggles of Sarah’s father’s drug use, his recovery, and redemption to be a better person. He gives back by doing missions work in Africa, takes in Sarah’s aunt dying of uterine cancer, and eventually leads their family to the mountains of Guatemala. Sarah also discusses her struggles with alcohol use and depression; where she eventually hits rock bottom. It is not until she starts seeking God through prayer, books, and therapy, where she starts to turn her life around.

      "Life is Beautiful" is not only a unique story, but it shows the strength of God’s Will. When all hope is lost, she never gives up on God. This story is a true testimony of God’s love for His people, and when one seeks a spiritual journey and connection with God; He gives back in love, forgiveness, and happiness.

    Indie Books #106 (Samuel Marquis)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 

    Author Samuel Marquis joins me to talk the first two of seven books to be released in the next year: The Slush Pile Brigade & Blind Thrust.

    On his thirtieth birthday, Nick Lassiter has lost his girlfriend and his job, is wanted by the police, and has discovered that his unpublished thriller, Blind Thrust, has been stolen and turned into a blockbuster movie called Subterranean Storm. Even worse, the movie is based on a soon-to-be best-selling novel by Australian thriller writer Cameron Beckett, one of the world's biggest brand name authors. Rather than seek revenge through a financial settlement or public humiliation, Lassiter sets out for New York to obtain mea culpas from Beckett and his renowned literary agent, whom he is certain colluded with the Aussie in stealing his debut novel. Once in New York, Lassiter, and his three quirky fish-out-of-water friends who insist on accompanying him, instantly run afoul of the law and other powerful forces intent on thwarting them and their mission. As they encounter one thorny obstacle after another, the scope of their inquiries expands and they are soon in way over their heads, battling toe-to-toe not only against the mega-best-selling author and his agent, but a formidable army of antagonists, including the NYPD, Beckett's Big Five publishing house security squad, and the Russian mob. Collectively, these adversaries present Lassiter with the greatest--and deadliest--challenge of his life.
