Shades of Romance Magazine Interview with Brenda Farrar Ejemai

SORMAG – Shades of Romance Magazine

Interview with Brenda Farrar Ejemai

June 3





THE FAMILY IN THE CAR, A Revelation, which the author describes as “on-time”, time-lines the journey of a struggle. It shows how members of a family who were all their lives sheltered, as well as privileged, now were without. “The trauma was so unbelievable, I felt that period in my life was a dream and not actually lived,” Ejemai said. Although it was written in 2004, the author felt led to… Continue

Protect Your Work - Quick Reference Guide

I did a lot of research before publishing my first book. Being new and having no experience, I wanted to protect my work, my mind, get to the right people and publisher - all on a limited budget. How I did it is in my new eBook - "Tell Your Story...Better Yet, Get It Published" - a quick reference guide for aspiring authors. Everything I found useful is in print with clear explanations and links that take you right to the source...from protecting your work to getting book reviews. a great…

THAT ONE THING WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT

Frustrated and feel like you’re beating on a dead horse. Got a new book on the market and feel it’s going nowhere. Need a new view, a different prospective. Tired of bragging and telling your friends about the new book you have coming out, but still on the shelf? Tell you what. Not a dime, just a little of your time. Focus, concentrate, and be a sponge. The key to knowledge cleanse the heartbeat of a writer’s soul, this that is our existence, each word that comes to light.

Writing is not… Continue

CHAINED TO MADNESS

Chained to madness, ugly naked soul

Purity painted black, blood chilling cold

I don't care what's going on, but this shit is getting old

Every time I turn around, someone is in my face

Telling me how bad I am, that I'm a big disgrace

You chain me to misery, pretending I'm not there

Then you come to me mad, & say that I don't care

You laugh at me, you walk away, saying I'm a fool

You push me to the very edge, then you say I'm cruel

You contradict,… Continue

SISTER CRIED

Sister cried, when daddy died

Even though, he never stood with pride

The adverse streets, he would greet

The violent beat, which swallows the weak



The cops would knock, knock at the door

Looking for momma, who was a whore

Who ran the streets, flesh peddling freak

No one will weep, when she's 6 ft. deep



Sister cried, when brother died

Found in the street, discarded meat

Shot in the back, while buying crack

Another statistic, of a… Continue

THE LAND OF DISGRACE

Inside a world of pain, the core of poverty

A chain of events, the world refuses to see



There are children dying, abused & misused

Slain in the streets, killers on the news



A child is born a junkie, grows up to be a whore

The neighbor is a thug, or a pusher next door



Momma is a barfly, roaming self-pity streets

Her children at home starving, not enough to eat



The landscape is a picture, not for a magazine

If you see it in a… Continue

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
