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…

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.

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, 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

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
