How to Quench a Thirst Born in the Wilderness by Ophelia Brown (Review)

How to Quench a Thirst Born in the WildernessHow to Quench a Thirst Born in the Wilderness by Ophelia Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once I saw the title of the book, I was intrigued to read it to quench my curiosity. As soon as I opened the pages, I could feel the compassion that the author felt for young women who are in uncommitted and unhealthy relationships in the first section of the poetry book (Encounters). Ophelia Brown may be sharing her own past experiences of heartache, not receiving the love she longed for in her past relationships, and heartbroken overall. Many young girls can relate and have been either naive or vulnerable to the meaning of love. I see this book for 18+ mature young women.

This is one of the first poetry books where I was captivated and sympathized with every word that I read of a hurting woman especially seeking for love in all the wrong places. These poetic words sung deeply in my soul (mind and emotions); which made it harder to chose my favorite ones. Finally, I concluded that in the section entitled Celebrate Myself had motivating and encouraging poems to continue to celebrate your feminist side or uniqueness. There were life-altering and life-changing with affirmation poems in which I loved the most: Requiem (p. 148), Midnight Walk (p. 31), and Once Tangled Wings (p. 131). The most compassionate and sensual, somewhat erotic ones were found in Colorful Nights. Overall, the shorter poems touched my mind and heart the most that were enriched with passion, sweetness, and bit of bitterness from past hurts or emotional pains which humankind is able to get a grasp of their own existence. Lastly, some of the selected poems (to my likings) in the section called Creator and Created were geometrically, mathematically interweaves God with His creation so symmetrically how it all aligns to His magnificent being.

Thomas Jefferson Pimped by Mc Ill Lee Jest Review

Thomas Jefferson Pimped: Vodun Strikes BackThomas Jefferson Pimped: Vodun Strikes Back by Mc Ill Lee Jest
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Thomas Jefferson Pimped has three books in one which all refer to the curse of Ham. Book 1 has ghostly transitions taking place in the Alley, mystical place where superstition and ancestors connect to the young painter’s mind. Moreover, the Oracle allows him to see each person’s souls. Gamma Emma argues how Caucasians have replaced the Black Jesus who was crucified on the fake white copy one for their own selfish greed, where it justified their cruelty done to African slaves while explaining it to the young painter—main character of every book, Juda Stash. These slave owners trusted and used the Bible for their greedy ill-gotten gains, blasphemous accounts to enslave African men and women from their lands by justifying this as their inheritance. This is the first explanation I’ve ever read for the past accounts of our predecessors. Book 2 gives a broader visualization of what’s going on for the main character but as shown in the first book, overload of dialogue with historical, theological facts based on Egyptian, Hebraic, Judaism, and other religious beliefs. There are also mythologies to give the reader a spiritual awakening as well as political, which acclaims the Bible stole concepts from Black Egyptians spiritual texts. I wondered if there is a separation among the Egyptian race: White versus Black Egyptians. Book 3 focused on Juda leaving the Ville in St. Louis to attending St. Katharine Drexel College in New Orleans and then the Air Force while facing racial slurs and incidents that he had to undergo; including a connection to the traces of Ham’s curse that still ties into slavery in the 21st century. In this book was less dialogue with historical-theological concepts and was drawn out into narration of which also connected to the synopsis or blurb on the back of the book. Finally, the title about Thomas Jefferson pimped his own slave children to do his bidding and gain wealth on his plantation, as well as being part of the Declaration of Independence but later Andrew Jackson took on some of his concepts in his reign as a presidential candidate. Moreover, this book argues the Bible is the formula for sacred loathing and where Scribes like Ezra was the master magician of deception (including others) to condemn Blacks to a lifetime of manic depressions and walking death in relation to the unworthy sons of Ham, the Black race, and the cursed (p. 152).

The books were well-written, hardly any typographical issues in 421 pages, but strongly believe it needed developmental editing with transitions. As a writer/author, reader, and reviewer, I prefer to see the book split into two separate books instead of combination of three books in one. One book should have all the historical, theological, mythologies insight in an orderly manner for African history (or Africology classes in college), Egyptian mythology, and other religion courses or readers with another title, or can use this catchy title but with more correlation to Thomas Jefferson using slaves for his ill-gotten gains. The other book will only focus on the storyline with minimal mythologies and historical-theologian concepts but stick to the mystical and Vodun mysteries with the characters like Juda, Gamma Emma, etc. with the title (subtitle of book already): Vodun Strikes Back. Additionally, the author can focus on the evil spirits that feeds on Black blood, where the curse pays homage to the demon in the slave trade. Some good examples of past books I’ve reviewed are One Blood by Qwantu Amaru, Antebellum by R. Kayeen Thomas, Kindred by Octavia Butler, and Resurrection of Nat Turner by Sharon Ewell Foster. These books were able to show current day, or combination of history, slavery, and street literature without jamming too much narration or dialogue telling the reader of historical-theological concepts.

The sexual scenes introduced in the book doesn’t have much substance and at times wondered how it came about, which each characters has enormous private body parts which doesn’t seem rational to me. Yet, this is all taking place in the superego of Juda. There were passages I questioned if it was factual or fiction in relation to the Egyptian, Hebraic, Jewish, and Muslim-related content. However, it was captivating and intriguing of which I underlined and questioned as a whole. The author definitely challenged my intellect on historical versus theological events taking place throughout past and present. It also reminds the reader of political gain and power of White predecessors banking their wealth on the backs of slaves’ and why some West Africans were connected in the Slave Trade among the Spanish and English captors.

The author provided a complimentary copy for a book review.

Redeem Yourself by Jerome Livingston Jr. (Review)

Redeem Yourself to Thy Own Self be TrueRedeem Yourself to Thy Own Self be True by Jerome Livingston Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title of book: Redeem Yourself: To Thy Own Self be True
Author’s name: Jerome Livingston
Publisher: PJ Communication
Release date (or anticipated release): June 13, 2012
ISBN: 978-0-9849455-0-4
Specs: paperback, 201
Website (optional): thestrongwillsurvive.com
Category: Nonfiction
Review Summary:
Jerome Livingston Jr. introduces the reader to the social and economic issues such as President Obama inherited the fall of America and how educational institutions are also failing our children. Moreover, our current president is expected to deliver us from such a failed nation. Livingston tackles on economic alternatives and practical reasons to meet the destructive behaviors that led many to the new slavery—prisons in America with cheap labor to increase the economy; new plantation.

This book is powerful, whether it seems factual or opinionated, and voices his views on the prison system boldly and confidently without any restrictions.

Dream Moment(s): “…realize the power behind every single choice; you begin to think more long term about your decisions (p. 13).” There are valuable lessons given in order to change negative behaviors such as stop blaming people and believing someone views about you which can change one’s perception on life. We need to be prepared to face what we dish out based on our choices. He also shared his life turmoil briefly on drugs/alcohol addictions and working on getting his life back on track—no more excuses. He shares his faith in God that all things are possible with Him and truths on building character as well as learn from your mistakes to become a better person.

Nightmare(s): I would suggest a proofreader since there were typographical and minor grammatical issues. Sometimes the flow of the book tends to jump around but able to jump back to where I left off.

Dream 4 More: This is a self-help book with life examples with wealth of insight and reminders that will keep us encouraged, uplifting key points, and raw truths. “Use that same hustler’s spirit to elevate your game legitimately (p. 19).” Jerome Livingston Jr. has self-improving points on social issues, education, politics, poverty, employment, success, and domestic violence to name a few. He even touches on the cycle of abuse among Black families—breaking the generational curse cycles.

DDBS by Tremayne Moore REVIEW

Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid: Michael Anderson's Fight For LifeDeaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid: Michael Anderson's Fight For Life by Tremayne Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title of book: Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid (Michael Anderson’s Fight For Life)
Author’s name: Tremayne Moore
Publisher: Maynetre Manuscripts, LLC
Release date (or anticipated release): May 1, 2012
ISBN: 0-985-44634-X
ASIN (if applicable):
Ebook ISBN: 0-985-44635-8
Specs (optional, eg. 6x9 paperback, mass market, 240 pages): 6x9 Paperback, 112 Pages
Website (optional): www.maynetre.com
Category: Fiction based on a true story
Review Summary:
Tremayne Moore wrote a novel based on a true story. This is the first time I ever read a book that started at a funeral where Brother Freeman highlights the main points from the journal of Michael Anderson—the abuse head on for all to know and feel what this young man suffered and experienced. Overall, there were so many valuable lessons shared in this novel and highly recommended to young adults of both genders and adults who experienced any type of abuse.

Dream Moment(s): “…failed to understand was that she sinned and is forgiven by God (page 60).” Michelle was a pregnant teen, and needed wisdom and valuable lessons from the church women instead of the slander, gossip, and bad-mouthing this young female. Moreover, usually in the church, we say casually, “hate the SIN, not the sinner.” Some would use the word hate/love in the place of this phrase: “hate the sin but love the sinner.” How can we do this when we criticize and judge instead of encourage and edify? I loved this phrase mentioned in the book as a wake-up call hopefully for judgmental Christians.

Dream 4 More: Michael met two special ladies in his youth: Michelle and Janice. He liked them both but neither seemed to like him more than just a friend. Michelle could relate to his sexual abuse only because she was also fondled by her mother’s boyfriend; however, Janice was unable to relate to his sensitive side due to the abuse and even allowed others to make fun of him by sharing his past experiences. Therefore, we have to be careful who we share our secrets with, even with the people you care about.

Out of the Shadow of Poverty by Ruth Jenkins- Oliver and Lakeisha Oliver

Out of the Shadow of Poverty: Living the American Dream Through FaithOut of the Shadow of Poverty: Living the American Dream Through Faith by R. Jenkins-Oliver
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Title: Out of the Shadow of Poverty: Living the American Dream through Faith
Author: Ruth Jenkins-Oliver and Lakeisha Oliver
Publisher: Avid Readers Publishing Group
Release date (or anticipated release): 2/28/2012
ISBN: 978-1-61286-083-1
Specs: 230 paperback
Website (optional): http://hstrial-rjenkinsoliver.homeste...
Category: Memoir*

Review Summary:
Ruth Oliver with co-author, Lakeisha Oliver writes about Rudy, an African-American girl, living a poverty-stricken community in McIntosh County, Georgia during the 1950s. It also captures the historical Geechee and Gullah communities in South Georgia, from slavery times, where people believed in their roots and faith in God. Throughout all the hardships, living on a farm, and going through the motions, Rudy still keeps her faith and grew up in a loving family environment regardless of the challenges she had to face.

Dream Moment(s): I loved to see how family lived nearby on the several acres of land that was passed down a generation and always sharing their food. I would love to see families like this, not tit for tat, or only care about them and forget their families when one is in need. There was also a part in the story that discussed bullying and how Rudy and Addie later became friends because Rudy fought back. “Don’t ever close your hands too tight because if you do, nothing will come back to you” (page 105). I always heard a similar phrase, “Closed fists don’t get fed.”

Nightmare(s): There were a few minor grammatical and punctuation errors while reading the book but should not deter you from the actual story. The flow of the storyline was a little bothersome in the first chapter (Eulonia) because it was rather confusing at times when it jumps from scenes of the character’s life without a break to see the transition. Although there were two editors mentioned, a good developmental editor would have helped with the transitions and flow of the story itself and lastly a proofreader to catch these minor errors.

Dream 4 More: Since this story takes place in the 1950s and in the South, I was glad on some terms, the author gave clarification by defining the words and offered a glossary (but most of the Southern dialect, I was quite familiar with it). Ironically, I enjoyed learning about the natural herbs and remedies to cure or alleviate pain, rashes, and illnesses mentioned in the story. There were some moments of inspiration, historical memorable people, and tragic events during the 1960s.

Release date (or anticipated release): June 19, 2012, ebook is now on Amazon.com Kindle

ASIN (if applicable): B0087B5LBC
Specs: paperback, 240 pages, and available as eBook version
Website (optional): www.patriciabridewell.com
Category: Christian Suspense Fiction

Review Summary:
The prologue is explosive, where we read that Khadesia is marked as a "monster" or simply misunderstood. Was she guilty of a hideous, horrendous crime of murdering her ex-boyfriend? She was unable to convince the detectives, police officers, even her cell-mate; therefore, how will she prove her innocence to the judge while resting behind the prison bars. She fights to keep her sanity, put all the pieces together, and shares her past tragedy—the moment Laron was shot and laid in his pool of blood. Here, we have a woman who has been physically and verbally abused by a man who doesn't trust her, their relationship, and jealous lover who accuses her of cheating and watching her in the darkness. Later, Khadesia has a “Cinderella” lifestyle by marrying the man of her dreams—Malcolm Hill, assistant pastor of Solid Rock Ministries. Regardless of the rivalry between Malcolm and his elder brother, Corbin, in regards to passing the pastor’s baton to the next best man; debate between favored versus oldest. Then, Stacie, Corbin’s wife doesn’t want to be a stay-home mom and neither does Corbin want to step into ministerial leadership—both are pushing each other into roles they do not wish to partake in.

Dream Moment(s): So many woman have similar abusive relationships, and loved how the author(s) wrote the opening chapter with such conviction, emotion-rendered to get into the mindset/feelings of the female character, and brilliantly written to keep us on the edge of our seats with question marks that will hopefully have periods and exclamation points! Suspense and mystery is heightened just from the opening...

Dream 4 More: Mother Hill, first lady, believed in training a child the way they should go in which was her favorite quote/scripture too. However, she didn’t only speak about it or criticize how the young girls acted or dressed and decided to start “Classy Lady” classes for the young girls. We should not just “talk about it” but “do something about it”. These characters were linked so creatively and nearly attached to each one in a different perspective, well-written, and loved the story from start to finish. I hope these authors continue to write together and mesh beautiful, rich stories in the Christian Fiction genre.

Twisted Seduction by N'Tyse (Adrienna Reviews)

Twisted Seduction: A NovelTwisted Seduction: A Novel by N'tyse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While reading Twisted Seduction, I was waiting for the twists with a taste of seduction. N’Tyse does tip over the scale of the erotic-ness and seduction of luring married couples sleeping with the opposite sex. Married Denise Jackson sleeps with married Greg Adams, with the expectation of things going further but surprisingly, he lets her know clearly it is just an affair and nothing more. Denise, best friend, Nadine after three years of sexually admiring her husband, Jeff, finally gets him between those legs. Pregnancy happens unexpectedly, seeing other options outside of an abortion to adoption, but what do women expect who have sex without always staying protected. Denise plans all backfire—divorce, sexual affair goes no further than what meets between her thighs, lies comes to the light about her daughter, and best friend Nadine ends. While reading towards the end of the novel, not sure whether to smack Denise for her foolish mindset or laugh at her for her credulous behavior regardless of her intellectual mindset as a business woman.

As for Jeff Jackson, after a failed marriage and results of paternity test, he went haywire and so does his sexual appetite to the gentleman’s night club. What a place to drown his sorrows and meet his fleshly needs. I wait to see what comes of his life after divorce, and not being the father—shutting his dreams down the drain. Sadly, the part tore to my heart was when he had to downsize employees to prevent bankruptcy for the company he managed and firing special people in the department. I truly know the reality of being downsized and even unemployment for periods of time.

What does it take you to go through to wake up to reality? The ending of the novel, let’s see how some realities give us that “wake-up call” to see it all.

Category: Children Picture Book
Website (optional): http://hstrial-rjenkinsoliver.homeste...

Review Summary:
This is a tale about Sidney and her pet cat, Toby. Toby came from a litter of 5, but was overjoyed to be in the cuddly arms of its owner, Sidney. Toby shares his adventures outdoors, at the vet, and at home playing with his toys. Once Toby had his own screen room, he was meeting all types of animals at the screen door—new friends. Later, wondered what happened to his new friends around the way—animal control on patrol. As a cat owner, this story was enjoyable and relatable.

Dream Moment: The humorous part of the story is where Sidney tried to take Toby for a walk on a leash.

Dream 4 More: At the end of the children picture book is an unscramble game of words. Can you see (or figure out) the words? Then you take the picture words next to the actual picture of the animals as a learning/teaching tool for kids 4-9 years old. Lastly, draw your favorite pet/animal on the last page.

Party Time by Pat Tucker (Adrienna Reviews)

Party Girl: A NovelParty Girl: A Novel by Pat Tucker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Pat Tucker pens Party Girl, not only does the title set you up for the read but the cover as well. While reading on the job, some stared or wondered what the book was all about. Tucker had a great concept on “Texas Law of Parties” whereas Hope Jenay Donovan was sentenced to death for a murder she didn’t commit. Conversely, Adena wanted to see her “True Justice” for the brutal murder of her beloved husband and setup a committee of parents/mothers for the 5 years Hope was incarcerated. She became excited to see that after 5 years that Hope was ready to set a date for her execution but her family and friends wondered after this long period of time that Hope would go forth and expedite execution—guess she lost her fight. There were a pair of jail mates that kept her faith and gave her hope, then civil leader and Rev. Al Sharpton comes to see Hope and plead in her behalf of the ill-treatment for someone who is not guilty, based on a line of events to defend her case. This is not the first case; one similar to Hope's is the Todd Willingham’s case. After his death row was revealed of his innocence, to discover that he wasn’t guilty of the alleged crime. This gave Hope faith but she went back three steps and wants to get it over with!

Some readers may shake their head to see a loved mother and wife, who never pulled the trigger, just happened to hop in a ride of her homeboys due to her borrowed car breaking down and needed a ride. However, Q and Trey, who actually committed the crime but all were arrested for a brutal convenience store robbery. Side note: I wished to see more of this brutal crime, and what actually happened to Q too.

Brendon Donovan believed his wife innocence and fought for their love to be reunited but after all was said and done; he moves on and sleeps with someone close to her. On the other hand, her sister, Chastity is holding it down to take care of sister’s kids over these 5 years while her sister is behind bars but refuses to visit or respond to the numerous letters sent from Hope. She has an unstable relationship with a demanding boyfriend, Trey, and undernourished feelings for her brother-in-law, Brendon that should've never flourished in the first place. Trey accuses her of this fatal attraction and reminds her of what he had to give up being with her—making this unbalanced relationship work. My personal dilemma was how could Chastity date a married man and the same one who was responsible for the crime that her sister is behind bars? Moreover, I was glad to see Hope get over the “victim mentality” and others to encourage Hope to want to live once more, and seek justice beyond this stupid law. Fight for your rights.

Although this novel derives from the Texas Law of Parties, if a murder occurs during the process of a crime that all parties are eligible for the death penalty. Many would say “at the wrong place at the wrong time” and this is a debatable issue of capital punishment. Will Hope be a “dead woman walking”? Did anyone have substantial evidence to stick on Hope’s case? Did the police or detectives get involved in this case, or only base it on the law of parties to send an innocent women to the electric chair long as justice is served? There were some things unanswered, and oddly didn’t tie securely together for me in this read. Is there a sequel? I hope there is a sequel to resolve all the unsolved mysteries. On the other hand, the romantic connections/relations between the couples went limp for me. Yes, it was clear that so-and-so was dating or sleeping with so-and-so, but I longed for the soul ties.

Key quote in the entire novel was “I had hung my faith on the wrong things too many times (page 210).”

Her writing style was error-free, and an easy, smooth read. Tucker rails you in the opening chapter with your tongue out, clueless, until you get midway in the novel to start putting the pieces together of the puzzle. After chapter one, fast forwards to five years later, and then wait to see how it opens and unleashes the demons before our very eyes.

The Mind of a Poetic UnsubThe Mind of a Poetic Unsub by Greatest Poet Alive
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: The Mind of a Poetic Unsub
Author: G.P.A.
Publisher: AZ Publishing
Release date (or anticipated release): 2011
ISBN: 978-1-936037-39-1
Specs: soft cover, 115
Category: Poetry

Review Summary:
G.P.A. has written two previous poetry books that had rave reviews for this fairly new poetic voice on the scene and renowned for his lustful, sensual, and erotic poetry/prose for books like “The Book of 24 Orgasms” and “The Confessional Heart of a Man.” Surprisingly, this is the first time I got a chance to read this author’s creative work. As an author of poetry and other works, this ridiculously diverse poetic style where in this book he wanted to incorporate French/Latin/Italian formats of poetry such as cinquain, villanelle, sestina, and a short story. There are humorous, comical moments, tragedy moments, ah-moments, and even twisted-what-the-heck moments too while reading these poems/prose. This poetic vessel knows how to draw you in and anchor on your erotic soul to passionately and lustfully dive in for such a sensation that screams “encore” as you skip to the end section entitled The Land of the Multiples.

Dream Moment(s): The poem I Am a Good Man ended so dramatically true where his uniqueness dignified that he cannot be the celebrity-attention men who are noted for sexiness, or drive a luxury car, but to stick to God’s plan to what it takes to be a good man. There were a few others I enjoyed reading The Helicopter, Wait for Me (Please Don’t), and Beautiful Woman (sounds like me).

Nightmare(s): There were some minor punctuation issues but still readable material (e.g. pm should be p.m.).

Dream 4 More: This humble poet accepts his demise as a published author when submitting his book to review groups/clubs, where he shares that ‘honesty may be the best policy’ to those reviewers who just don’t like to read poetry. How well do we take criticism, rejection, or false pretenses—read Everyone Hates G.P.A. poem. If not already, he should consider selling versions on audio CD or audio book to really have people snapping, clapping and shouting, “Soar 4 your encore”!

Behind the Mist by M.J. Evans

Behind the Mist (The Mist Trilogy, # 1)Behind the Mist by M.J. Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: Behind the Mist
Author: M.J. Evans
Publisher: Langdon Street Press
Release date (or anticipated release): Jan. 3, 2011
ISBN: 978-0-9766168-3-2
Specs: soft cover, 5.5 x 8.5, 226 pages, mass market
Website (optional): www.behindthemist.com ;
Category: Young Adult/Fantasy/Adventure

Review Summary:

Nick met Jazz, his black stallion during vacation in Colorado, at twelve years old. There was an electrifying bond between the two immediately. Nick survived the lion attack by the grips of the horse’s teeth that flew the mountain lion at least seven feet away from the young lad. Five years later a major accident takes place, but Nick and his horse went into the midst to a magical kingdom known as “Celestria” which is a fantastical lifestyle with beautiful unicorns, fairies, and healing power beyond belief.

Dream Moment(s): In this mystical realm, experience the power to heal and hear animals speak as well as an adventure to enrapture on this reading journey of this novel. Nick’s power source was love and encouragement in which helped him refocus his strength and thoughts. This is a dream moment for young adults to see the power of love, encouragement, and refocus your thoughts to positivity. “We have no power if we have fear. Replace fear with love” (page 70).

Dream 4 More: The moral of the story is “freewill” and choose to be either good or evil, which path you choose isn’t always easy especially coming to the light (good). Nick had the power. You also have the power to choose your path on this life journey. What I loved most about this book: Nick was able to see dreams, create and speak things into existence, and a heart to love and help a young girl in need—to rescue her out of the darkness. Moreover, I am a dreamer, thinker, and doer—Nick exemplified all these things and hope it encourages young people to do the same in their lives. The readers for this book are 12 years old and up; however, the author’s writing style is precisely for older teens.

Growing pains: Kendra's diaries by K.P. Smith review

Title: Growing Pains: Kendra’s Diaries
Author: KP Smith
Publisher: Doin It Publishing
Release date (or anticipated release): 2011
ISBN: 9780615390307
Specs: paperback and ePub/mobi versions are available
Website (optional): www.kendrasdiaries.com or http://doinitpublishing.com/
Category: Young Adult (YA)

Review Summary:
Kendra, the oldest sister, has to share with her younger sister, Patrice, about her parents’ verbal attacks and daily scrabbles usually around managing their finances and providing for the family.

K.P. Smith wrote a cutesy, witty, and fun chick lit with some moral lessons and interweaves some faith-based concepts in this teen literature. She also briefly covered in the first chapter on ethnic issues especially in New Orleans that was cleverly done in a humorous way for teens (and adults) who reads their copy.

Dream Moment(s): As a teen girl, Kendra wondered when her countless prayers would be answered by a Mighty God and pondered on sayings that most believers said to her, “You have to wait on Him” and “He’s always on time.” Which she beg to differ, since on her watch seemed to be very late and not sure how long she had to wait for her prayers to be answered. Kendra later realized based on one’s life choices that there will be consequences but not to quit or be a quitter even through the most difficult times. As a reader and reviewer, I also liked how she put in the Creole lingo/dialect in the reading.

Dream 4 More: Kendra Foster may have undergone some of the same things that other teens may have gone through such as argumentative parents over the household expenses; self-esteem; and building their confidence and faith in accomplishing their dreams while in junior high (8th grade). Kendra tries out for a cheerleading team, after two years, she finally makes the team. She works on her confidence and trusts in her instincts that she can accomplish anything her heart desires; making her dreams a reality. This character is relatable and can help encourage and edify other teens going through similar issues at this prime time in their lives. Moreover, I would recommend this novel to pre-teens (tweens) from 11-12 years old to older teens.

Dream 4 More Reviews has received Growing Pains: Kendra’s Diaries by the author for a book review.

Love & Regrets by Sheryl Mallory-Johnson Review

Love & RegretsLove & Regrets by Sheryl Mallory-Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: Love & Regrets

Author: Sheryl Mallory-Johnson

Publisher: Wanasoma Books

Release date (or anticipated release): December 2011

ISBN: 978-0-9822085-2-6

Specs: Paperback, 302 pages

Category: Relationships/Contemporary

Review Summary:

Carmen Hill-Dougherty is seeking for change and when a male counterpart comes on the work scene, then her interests excelled as if she was on cloud nine but not normal for a married woman to be attracted to her co-worker. Kendall, senior sales manager, lacks both experience and education but made Carmen’s adrenaline flow and mental senses went downhill. She hired this Dominican sex bod, was it worth the fling to lose the wedding ring? She later suffers from a mental breakdown, panic attacks, and her emotional structure brings the reader in.

Tempest Perry thought her dreams were coming true once she met the rookie athlete Sterling Alexander later went professional NFL line-backer but not quite sure she got what her heart desired. She got critical to comforting feedback from her sisters and friend, Dana, after seeing his interview showcasing another woman as his Cinderella. She fights her thoughts and feelings to see if her fiancé truly loves her, or is she just another woman on the game field. Like most women, she reminiscences on her past high school insecurities and imperfections once she sees another beautiful woman on the scene that could steal her dream man from her future wedding plans.

Dana Dougherty, sister-in-law to Carmen and best friend to Tempest, seems to find love in Omar who definitely doesn’t feel the same about her. What does a rebound lover look like? When love has a new face, Matthew has the compatibility and stability but Dana discovers that both men are “momma boys.” Which man will she choose to share her life and happiness with?

All these ladies have one thing in common: failed relationships, where they were seeking for love without anything in return. These women choices make you question their actions and reactions especially when it comes to love, relationships with the opposite sex, and regrets that are hard to forget. Love & Regrets shares relationships where love is on the rocks, love on memory lane from dream to nightmare, and lover rebound just a play toy without any real commitment.

Dream Moment(s): Carmen has watched marriages fail from other family members, and so did hers but her grandparents marriage lasted 40 years. Her grandmother’s advice shook something inside of me, “Put more energy into staying married than you put into getting married, and don’t be a fool enough to think you’re the only woman in the running. There’s always someone waiting in the wings, ready to take your gold.” We cannot let someone win our race, and get in place, and trust our marriages will last with God in it!

Dream 4 More: Forgiveness is the key factor with a sincere heart as Tempest does with Sterling “she did it with her whole heart and soul (Matthew 6:14)” (page 296). Another important moral lesson exemplified in this reading was to “hold on to your dreams.” Sheryl Mallory-Johnson is a talented writer, gives balance of all the right elements to create the right formula for a splendid novel to read on relationships.

Dream 4 More Reviews has received Love & Regrets by the publicist for a book review.

Daniel Duval Pre-Interview on Soar 4 Your Encore (Adrienna Turner Show)

Daniel Duval latest book is Wounded by Leadership The book is about going from forgiveness to glory. How to overcome the wounds many have taken from authority church figures. His ministry is BRIDE Ministries.
The publisher is Creation House.

Adrienna Turner (from Adrienna Turner Show): "Tell us what are you soaring for?"
Daniel Duval: "My vision is to promote unity in the body of Christ worldwide and assist in the creation and development of sheep nations. This is what I am soaring for."
AT: "Share one of your dreams and how are you putting forth effort to make it a reality."
DD: "One of my dreams is to help thousands of people overcome the wounds that they have suffered from in the church. I have written Wounded by Leadership to achieve this dream, and with the right promotion, this book will allow me to achieve this goal. The healing that this book brings will allow for greater unity within the body of Christ, thereby fitting in with my overall vision."
AT: "Tell us 4 things that people would love to know about you (we don’t already know)."
DD: "I am half Puerto Rican and half Haitian. I don’t have a favorite color. I look particularly good in pink and even though I love football, I rarely watch it in favor of spending time with my wife."
AT: "Name your future plans and how you’re building on that dream."
DD: "My future plans are to continue to introduce healing and unity into the body of Christ. I plan to build upon the platform God has given me by continuing to write books and speak on the topics that he has called me to address. Once God grants me enough influence and resources, I plan to work towards the creation and development of sheep nations. I define sheep nations as entire geographies where the kingdom of God will reign in the hearts of men."
AT: "Who are you bringing on the dream journey with you, if any?"
DD: "I’m bringing my wife (haha!) and as many as God pulls alongside of me. I’m also bringing the Holy Spirit, because wherever I go, He is with me."
AT: "Who are you modeling after? Who inspires you?"
DD: "In my case, I am essentially setting out to do things that have never been done before. Once I get beyond the basics of writing books and speaking, many of the projects I want to undertake are going to have to be built from the ground up. I like to look at what Moses did. He led a nation out of captivity, receiving instructions on how to do it from God (from beginning to end). The forming documents of the nation (the Ten Commandments) were dictated to him, and he had no choice but to rely on the power of God in order to fulfill his mission. I see parallels between what God asked of him and what I feel God asking of me."
AT: As an author, please share in brief your writing process (e.g. time of hour you write, best time of the day or night, setbacks or disappointments, and obstacles to undergo as an author)."
DD: "I do most of my writing during the daytime. I used to be a night owl but now that I’ve been married for several years, I don’t do much work past 9 p.m. It helps that I don’t have children yet. I usually try to do my writing under the anointing. Sometimes I will write simply because I know I have to, but I don’t particularly like writing if I don’t feel the inspiration of the Spirit of God. When I face obstacles like writer’s block, I will either force myself to write anyway (if I need to) or just leave it alone and work on something else. I have found that if I have to write and it’s not coming fluidly, God will begin to help me only after I’ve resolved to write whether I feel like it or not."
AT: "As an author, what advice would you give to your readers and/or other authors?"
DD: "God may call us to do something, but just because we are obedient to do it doesn’t mean we are doing it right. Excellence is something that eludes Christians at times. God may call us to do something, and we do well if we are obedient, but we shouldn’t stop there. As the people of God, excellence should be our trademark. We should make everything that God calls us to create as excellent as possible, going beyond simple obedience. This is the difference between someone that God will use to shake a village and someone that God will use to shake a nation. If we refuse to allow God to make us world class, we will limit His capacity to use us for great things. My advice is to never settle."
AT: For ministries, what is your God-given vision? How to you hold on your vision and keep it alive for others to witness?"
DD: "My vision is the promote unity in the body of Christ worldwide and assist in the creation and development of sheep nations. This vision goes on everything I produce. I read it, speak it, and see it constantly, always keeping in before my face. My vision and I are inseparable."
AT: "For the individual: Are you living out your vision or dream?"
DD: "Yes."
AT: "Or the vision someone has planned for you, or expected you to do?"
AT: "Do you work hard to please others, or please yourself?"
DD: "I work hard to please God, which leads to self-fulfillment. When I do what God has called me to do well, others are pleased."
AT: "What does your future hold?"
DD: "Great things, my vision once fulfilled has the power to change the way the world works."
AT: "Are you carrying the vision, or did an experience awaken the dream inside of you, or someone else has birthed it into you?"
DD: "The vision was given to me through a long process initially involving dreams and visions but ultimately involving my ever deepening understanding of the mysteries of God’s Word and the subjects of eschatology and the kingdom of God."
AT: "What happens when you have roadblocks in front of your vision such as finances, strongholds, circumstances beyond your control, unemployment, homeless, etc.?"
DD: "I walk by faith and not by sight. I learned a while ago that my resources are not determined by what I tangibly have, and I do not live like they are."
AT: "Do you have a support group or someone you can turn to?"
DD: "Yes, I have a prayer team, a mentor, and close friends that know what I am setting out to do".

High Rollers, Players & Angels by Gregory A Johnson

High Rollers Players & AngelsHigh Rollers Players & Angels by Gregory A. Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: High Rollers, Players & Angels

Author: Gregory A. Johnson

Publisher: Getting the Work Done Publications

Release date (or anticipated release): October 2010

ISBN: 9780982966600

Specs: Paperback, 338 pages

Website (optional): www.highrollersplayersandangels.vpweb.co...

Category: Street/Urban

Review Summary:

No one seems to play the game fair and square. Parjoe calls the shots not only in a pool game but wants to start a major criminal enterprise with his crew. Griffith A. Jordan also known as Parjoe is the mastermind, college-bound with military experience brings on his men with muscle and bringing the heat: Blackman and Hot Rod, and his straight-up gangster, Wildman. In South Memphis, these men want to setup gambling houses, run whore houses, hustling drugs, and exporting hot cars to foreign countries. This operation is bigger than New Jack City, happening in a southern state like Memphis. Parjoe adds on a fifth man, Marcus Ducree who is a crooked banker to launder the dirty money and a sixth person, a woman, Laquette known to be the Queen B. Each guy starts with 50 grand on the table to start the business venture and network with other suppliers for the plan to surface. Parjoe has plans to not only do this locally but internationally.

Yet there are others lurking in the midst who do not want to see your come-up for various reasons and motives. This novel takes you for a run for your money with hot honeys.

Dream Moment(s): Through all the dirt and people getting hurt, there were some moral lessons taught in the novel such as greed even though your needs have been met but some ladies wanted more than what was offered on the table, never satisfied and willing to put their lives on the line for more; push someone only makes them push back; and lying, stealing, and cheating will eventually catch up to you. I enjoyed the girl talk between frenemies: Serena and Cutie Pie, was able to fess up and make things happen (page 240).

Nightmare(s): This is street literature to the fullest, just laced with profanity. However, the characters tone and vocalization fits this type of genre, especially guys from the streets in gangs, drug hustling, and illegal crimes.

Dream 4 More: High Rollers, Players & Angels is a fast-pace, gritty, and raw, even though there may be some similarities to other street lit books—it still stands in a place of its own and these characters/scenes are played in one’s mind like as if watching an urban movie. If you love Street Lit, this novel will surely entertain, give you the leverage you need, and see how it is done on multi-levels as the illegal enterprise unleashes its spew of greedy contenders.

Dream 4 More Reviews has received High Rollers, Players & Angels by the author for a book review.

K.P. Smith Pre-Interview: Soar 4 Your Encore! May 19, 2012 LIVE Interview

Interview by Adrienna Turner, Author of “The Day Begins with Christ”

Author K.P. Smith latest novel is "Growing Pains: Kendra’s Diaries." I would like to introduce you to Kendra Foster. She’s smack in the middle of growing up. Teenagers! She has problems at home and with her family. She thought making cheerleader would solve all of her problems, well maybe some of them, but it caused a major one she didn’t see coming. High school is quickly approaching and her dreams of attending The Academy seems more impossible with each passing day. Every time she thinks she has the answers; they change the question. But never count her out. Her story is one of determination, perseverance and strength. It is a coming of age story that will make you laugh, you might even cry; one thing for sure you will be inspired. Publisher: Doin It Publishing.

Adrienna Turner (from the Adrienna Turner Show): What are you soaring for?

K.P. Smith: Peace, happiness, health and everything life has to offer. Yes I have a bucket list and a never ending to-do-list. But I have learned those things are a just a blueprint. Each day we wake up is filled with new possibilities and adventures. Life is like a stream of water; we have to go with the flow. When I put my head on my pillow at the end of each day no matter what has transpired, I know I gave it my best and I look forward to doing it again!

AT: Share one of your dreams and how are you putting forth effort to make it a reality.

K.P. Smith: I always wanted to write a book so I did. While writing the book I decided to write a series. The series is titled "Growing Pains" and it is geared to the young adult audience. The first book: "Growing Pains: Kendra’s Diaries" has been out since June 2011. I am currently working on the second book tentatively titled "Growing Pains: New Beginnings." The series is designed to encourage, motivate and inspire the youth through the “maze” of growing up. I had a lot of help through this process but I did most of the work on my own. The process was and continues to be a lot of trial and error. I published my book through my own publishing company Doin It Publishing. But I incorporated to publish only my own books. Now the more I get out and talk about the book, I meet so many people saying they want to write a book or have started but don’t know what to do next. So, I decided to open my doors. Doin It Publishing is there to help. We welcome all authors but cater to new authors. We give them a helping hand and the guidance needed to make their own dreams come true.

AT: Tell us 4 things that people would love to know about you (we don’t already know).

K.P. Smith: 1) I am a mom of two sons. 2) I am an insurance adjuster by day. 3) I love sports, reading, and dancing. 4) I turned 40 last year and feel like I am coming into my own.

AT: Name your future plans and how you’re building on that dream.

K.P. Smith: Right now, I am focusing on building my publishing company, completing the Growing Pains Series and going around the country talking to the youth. I would also love to write for television and if the path opens up also for screenwriting for movies!

AT: Who are you bringing on the dream journey with you, if any?

K.P. Smith: My family and my entrusted friends that know me and support me.

AT: Who are you modeling after? Who inspires you?

 K.P. Smith: The list would be endless but if I have to choose; Oprah, Tyler Perry, Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs. I love innovators and people who are always thinking “ahead of the times.”

AT: For authors, what advice would you give to your readers and/or other authors?

K.P. Smith: For my readers life is not a sprint. It is a marathon. It is not the destination but the joy, happiness, and fulfillment is all in the journey. Always remember to stay positive, keep it moving and never give up!! For authors, there are two key points that I have learned along the way. First of all, even if you are writing the best book ever written, it will only become a best-seller if people are buying it. That is why when you decide to write a book, while you are writing it and every day thereafter; you have to focus on marketing! Marketing!! Which brings me to my second point, everyone has the “answer” on how to be a successful author. Although I believe it is very important to know as much as you can about the industry and trends. It is even more important to realize just because something works for someone else does not necessarily mean it will work for you. There is that blueprint thing again. Read and learn everything you can and then keep trying and trying until you find out what works best for you.

Astria Legends: Genesis by Amanda Reaves

Astria Legends GenesisAstria Legends Genesis by Amanda S. Reaves

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Title: Astria Legends: Genesis (Book 1)

Author: Amanda S. Reaves

Publisher: Infinity

Release date (or anticipated release): 8/13/2010

ISBN: 978-0-7414-6039-4

ASIN (if applicable):

Ebook ISBN:

Specs: 255 pages

Website (optional): astrialegends.com

Category: Fantasy YA

Review Summary:

The novel opens the reader into a mystical, fairytale like characters that all play a role in the magical land of Zanali, includes seven planets as a whole governed by the creator Exalted One who assigns Serendas to keep watch over the planets. Although this book is a mystical, fantasy related read for Young Adults, I quickly found myself captured into the characters in relation to biblical characters such as the Watchers in Genesis 6 in comparison to the Serendas. Zavis also resembled the fallen angels, who refused to follow the Exalted Ones orders and were separated from the Serendas (who initially kept watch of all seven planets until the Exalted One removed them from this assignment order). Serendas are broken into 4 groups: Creation, Vitalize, Flare, and Death. Spectrums were non-sociable, hermit, and loners to keep the peace within the magical lands. Astrians (Angels) were the first created creatures by the Exalted One. Astria Legends is where legends are born with an inspirational twist, and dreams explode in the Astria Galaxy.

Oddly, as the chapters revealed more about the plans of the other lands and its creation, especially reading about the colorful spectrums, reminded me of 80s cartoons: Rainbow Brite and Care Bears. There are 8 Spectrums who protect the colorful layers of the spectrum and also questioning their roles/abilities given by the Creator. Overall, there are numerous characters to gather in the reading, and see how the story unfolds dealing with a powerful force, Sin, head on. Sin comes in various forms but to witness it in its purest form was unheard of (page 46).

Overall the novel spun into a whirlwind of beings of both good and evil, unleashing these spirits that spurted from their inner thoughts or feelings such a envy, guilt, and pride to name a few, and colorful characters that makes the reader’s mind burst into a mystical imagination.

Dream Moment(s): “decisions have lasting effects” (page 20). I was captured by the mythological stem of the storyline where Ambrose goes to speak with the Sire, and to find the 6-6-6 beast that will break the planet wide open with chaos, destruction, and death whereas many will follow this mythological beast. Would this young Ambrose, a Zavi militant warrior, be able to find this myth while Sire steps into his position with the Council? Another thing that gathered my undivided attention in the book, each time a character or pivotal being has a negative emotion or discord, it counteracts and forms into a new being and spits the words out of its mouth. This also changes the atmosphere of the Spectrums, colors grow dim. Just like when we let Sin in our lives, our passion and love grows dim. I loved most of the quotes starting each chapter with the artwork below. “It’s not always what you see that will hurt you the most. It is what you fail to see. And that doesn’t mean with your eyes” (page 126).

Nightmare(s): In the early chapter, I found the dialogue of the characters to be monotone, stoic, and hard to distinguish at times where I had to re-read briefly. Descriptive in narration in the first chapter but some of the writings kept me reading and to see what will transcend. (I ran across a few minor typographical errors and wrong word usage but was able to figure it out and continue to read).

Dream 4 More (Keep us Dreaming or Begging for more): In the early chapter, I’m hoping to see what takes place after reading about Serenda to follow in accordance to the Book of Essentia not to create life to make the Book of Mire a reality. Amanda S. Reaves interweaves fantasy and characters from biblical figures, lovely artwork (like graphic novels where she displayed her artwork per chapter), and would encourage the author to consider incorporating a graphic novel. Reaves has also ventured with action-like figurines featured on Astria Legends LIKE Facebook page, a website to showcase these characters including profiles, and possibly starting an animated series virtually. This makes the reader dream for more and more to look forward to with these mystical characters. Moreover, I cannot wait to see book 2 in the series (Exodus).

Dream 4 More Reviews has received Astria Legends: Genesis by the author for a book review.
