    Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Da Ghetto Gospels II King Diamond

    in Books

    Author King Diamond is a man of many talents who was born and raised in the city of Jacksonville, Florida. Amongst those God given talents include author, poet, and a certified HVAC Technician to list a few. The second youngest of 11 children his life journey truly define the saying that "every rose has its thorns. Lured by the many temptations of street life in the ghetto he soon caught his first 11 year prison sentence at the age of 18 and would continue to enter this revolving door until the age of 38, never spending a total of more than 2 years amongst society. 5 times he would gamble with his freedom in his quest to become 'hood rich and each time the end result was another trip to prison..Yet in 2009 he vowed that he was sick and tired of being sick and tired and the miraculous transformation began, and since then he's become not only a true man in totality but also a literary force to be reckoned with. In 2012 he attended TWS Jacksonville in Florida and became a licensed HVAC Technician with a diploma in Electromechanical Technology. Yet it was in prison in the year 2000 while working as a GED English & Literature and the Arts teacher that a fellow inmate convinced him to give the novel writing field a try. Manuscript after manuscript that he sent out to various urban street literature companies were rejected and deemed unworthy, to the point where he threw in the towel and the novels that he'd penned by hand began to collect dust on the shelf. It wasn't until he met Author Tameka Jones in 2014 in a Facebook group that the doors of the literary world would be opened wide for him, and that the novels that were once deemed unworthy would now become 5 star page turners in the urban fiction genre. Through King Publishing Group his first book "Blood Ain't Always Thicka" was released in February 2015, instantly winning the hearts of so many with his blood raw style of story writing.

    Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Meet the Commodores Sunny Giovanni

    in Lifestyle

    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 beforehand. 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.

    The pen was handed down to her from an older sibling as a means to focus her negative energy and anger into something different but was used as a way to alter her own situations.
    As a preteen Gio witnessed how much her writing could touch someone when she left one of her prized spirals in a classroom without knowing. Two weeks after it went missing someone brought it back to her asking for more, letting the young author know that almost everyone she knew read the story, but without knowing it was her in the story she had written.
    Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and transgender 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 miserably 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.
