Title: “Nobody’s Mulligan”

Author: Brian Holt

Genres: Christian literature

Description: You are cordially invited to stroll the streets of a modern-day “Mayberry” that has lost its way, unaware of its role in a global apocalyptic future. Each step away from the faith was the equivalent of a blind sprint towards disaster, and for the people of Grace’s Parrish this resulted in being designated as the point Satan chose to breach and ignite an inextinguishable hell on earth! With death and time confiscated, the tormented citizens surrendered the one they treated as an outcast to relieve their anguish. Those who believe their life includes more than their fair share of transgressors will easily identify with protagonist Margaret Sullivan. This modern-day Joan of Arc epitomizes fighting empty-handed is not synonymous with being unarmed, and when the smoke clears, the price is heavy.Continue reading

Inside the Literary Mind of... LaMont Anthony Wright, author of "The Art of Saying No"

 

Joey Pinkney: In your coming-of-age autobiography The Art of Saying No: the memoir of a naive poet, you are very careful to tell the truth about your vulnerability as a child and how that vulnerability was replaced with a hardened mindset. Loving yourself means giving yourself room to be vulnerable, but it also means being hardened enough to protect your vulnerability from parasitic distractions. Why was writing about this balance, in the context of your own life, important? And how will your readers most benefit from this aspect of your memoir – the balance between being vulnerable and hardened?

LaMont Anthony Wright: First off, that’s a great question. I have a theory, LOL… I was very curious coming up – as most kids are. Maybe more so, because I am a so-called “creative”. Unfortunately, there weren’t many mentors around when I was coming up. My youth was in the 70’s and 80’s. So between the Vietnam War and Ronald Reagan’s “War on Drugs,” a lot of men who may have been leaders in the community were either dead or in jail.Continue reading

Title: “Behind The Seen: Angels, Demons, and the Battle for the Human Soul”

Author: Frederick K. Price Jr

Genres: adult christian education, christian, nonfiction

Description: Behind The Seen: Angels, Demons, and the Battle for the Human Soul is a bold, provocative peek behind the spiritual veil! Taking a user-friendly yet thoroughly-researched approach, Frederick K. Price, Jr. offers a startling glimpse of the invisible world, where the battle rages between Heaven and Earth.

Drawing directly from Scripture, Price dares to challenge age-old theories, dispel widely-held assumptions, and address longstanding theological debates in tackling some of life’s hardest, most perplexing questions . . . questions that are more relevant today than ever.

From tattoos to t-shirt art, films to fitness centers, and the cars we drive to the music we blast inside them — we are daily bombarded by signs, images, ideas and activities that have a spiritual significance we may know nothing about. Behind The Seen is not about forbidding or denying, but about informing and enlightening. It’s about giving a stronger foundation on which to stand when making godly choices in a broken world.

Joey Pinkney: How does practicing the haiku poetry form shape your thought processes and the way you move through your literary world?

Cendrine Marrouat: There are only two poetry forms that I write now: the Haiku and the Sixku, my invention. The Haiku has been part of my life for years. Not only has it forced me to be very concise, but it has also taught me to be a more impactful artist. I see haiku everywhere I go.Continue reading
