Ancient Deities and their Place in Modern Society

January 11, 2011

Written by Alberta Parish

Many cultures have worshipped the sun, moon, stars, and specific Zodiac signs, because believe it or not, the ancients were very knowledgeable in the field of astronomy and astrology.

My novel also touches base on a topic that is not really talked about in the African American household or community. Mental Illness is a serious disease that is shunned fearing the stigma it brings. Most people who are affected by it is ashamed to seek out…

Are You in Competition with other Authors?

I had a fellow Author come by my table at an Authors showcase recently; he said I came by to check out the competition.

 

I was dumb founded by this because I was sure our books were probably not about the same topic, and even if they were our perspectives would surely be different!

 

I do not compete with other Authors at all. I write books solely to help and entertain people, not for the money and definitely not for the competition. I am curious what other…

The One Thing Successful People Never Do! Posted by Arie Love Hinnant

Success comes in all shapes and colours. You can be successful in your job and career but you can equally be successful in your marriage, at sports or a hobby. Whatever success you are after there is one thing all radically successful people have in common: Their ferocious drive and hunger for success makes them never give up.

Successful people (or the people talking or writing about them) often paint a picture of the perfect ascent to success. In fact, some of the most successful…

An Accompanying Poem for my Favorite Painting by S. Ross Browne

It took me a year to finally catch up with the artist that created 'The Huntress''. A year and a half ago there was no facebook page or fancy website. I tried in vain to contact galleries that listed him, with no response. Now, the multi-talented S. Ross Browne is becoming well known for this and many other offerings.…
