    Writing Warrior Radio Episode 3

    in Writing

    Allison’s passion for words began in early childhood, she had always been fond of reading about life, love, poetry and short stories. As she matured, she challenged herself to hone her craft, exploring various story lines and navigating into the tumultuous world of adult relationships. Nothing prepared her however for her venture into Urban Literature.Allison’s first experience with Urban Lit began when she, as an avid reader received a message from one who promoted for a brand new unknown publishing company and was seeking assistance in promoting novels. Allison jumped at the chance and was soon an official Street Team/Pep Squad member of the Cartel Publications. Allison’s first venture into self publication “Broken Promises Never Mend” became available in paperback in January 2010.  An amended version of which was released June 2010 in paperback, which features a new cover. It premiered on Amazon for Kindle, as of June 2010 as well. Allison learned various lessons while putting this novel together.


    Allison is currently focused on a collection of other works slated for release in 2016, under her  imprint “Full of Essence Publications”. The idea to reinvent herself came about with prayer and the desire to be so much more than she already established herself to be. In 2013, Allison Grace was signed to an independent publisher “Sevyn McCray Presents” spearheaded by Sevyn McCray and David Weaver of SBR Publications. Her novel under that imprint PrePaid Mistress debuted at number 5 on the Amazon Bestsellers list for African American women’s fiction. She followed up with the sequel Prepaid Mistress 2 and also revamped her ebook series Bitch Clique Reloaded into a full length action packed standalone. in 2015, Allison released an emotionally charged novel focusing on domestic violence and addiction entitled Blaque Widow.

    in Self Help

    If you believe that you have a book stuck inside of you, you may want to take a listen to the next interview with Beth Donnelly and Dagny Grant on I AM U Now Radio brought to you by the I AM Group University.  Today, they will have a conversation with Tom Bird, author of Write/Right From God…You, Words, Writing And Your Divine Purpose. 


    Tom has written 28 books, several of which have become best sellers.  His books have been featured in every major newspaper in the United States, as well as on major radio and television talk shows such as the Late Show with David Letterman.  


    True to form, Tom’s latest book Write/Right From God, which is already a #1 Amazon Best Seller, claims that the reason so many of us are drawn to write books is because in penning those books, we are given the opportunity to commune directly with God, who urgently desires to bridge the gap between the human side of us and the divine within us.

    Writing Warrior Radio Episode 1

    in Lifestyle

    Keith Kareem Williams is the author of 11 books & currently working on his 12th. He still resides in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York where he delicately balances his time between his responsibilities as a single father as well as the challenges of being a full-time author.


    “In interviews, one of the most difficult questions I’ve been asked is, ‘What genre are your novels?’ because honestly, I never write with any particular style in mind. I enjoy blending styles and mashing different genres together in interesting ways. Basically, I pen whatever is in my heart and soul. However, if I had to describe my style I would use musical terms and say that I write Urban, Hip-Hop, fiction with the rhythm of Reggae that crashed into Heavy Metal and then began to bleed Neo Soul.”


    One of the things I'm most proud of is how my children look at me with pride because I'm accomplishing my goals and doing the things I set out to do with my career. They recognize and respect my passion. I write constantly and I already have the titles & plots lined up for my next 69 novels. This is what I do and I'm just trying to let the rest of the world know this. My ambition is to become as legendary as some of the writers I admire. I believe that a GOOD writer pulls you into their story. A GREAT writer makes the world around you fall away as you read. The LEGENDARY writers tell stories that become a part of you and linger long after you've read the last line of the last chapter. It was once said that, the pen is mightier than the sword. I say to my fellow AUTHORS: Let's advance our craft until it's mightier than guns, grenades, bullets & nuclear bombs. If not, then put your pen down and fall back. Those of us who are serious about this will run you over as if we were riding in tanks." – Keith Kareem Williams

    Writing An Autobiography: Should You Name Real People In Your Book?

    in Women

    All of us are a living a story, a novel, a drama, an intriguing tale that others would sit and read about if it were written in a book. Some of us have actually chosen to write a book based on our lives, some are in the process of writing autobiographical "tell all"  books, while others have chosen to turn their lives into a fiction novel, loosely based on their experiences. When writing an autobiography, what are the rules when it comes to naming real people in your life? Do you change the names?  Do you say the name, particularly when it is a famous or already well known person? What about family members? What about when you are telling a shameful family secret, such as an act of rape or molestation by a parent or family elder, or an incestuous episode with a relative, or a secret pregnancy? What happens if the family gets angry at you after the book is published? Asadah, author of the book "Beating Black Kids" is today's guest, to tell us about the upcoming Soulful Chicago Book Fair this Spring and the Timuel D. Black Chicago History Essay Contest. We'll talk about the choices authors must make when choosing to put their lives on the pages of a book.
