    Today, you can enjoy excerpts from both of them.

    SCHOOLING HIS SON. #NEWRELEASE
    “What the hell were you thinking son?” Kent asked.
    “Dad, I wasn’t jumping Jamal in. We had all watched the HBO special, Gang banging in Little Rock and we were acting it out. That bandana is mama’s, she wraps her hair with them. Dad I’m fascinated by gang culture but I’m no thug and I’m not stupid. Mr. Harrison is black but he hates black kids, especially boys. He’s not just tough. He especially hates ‘privileged little niggers’...
    Cina sat up and Kent’s eyes narrowed.
    “Say what?” Kent asked.
    “Yes dad, he calls me and a few of my friends that. To him we are privileged little niggers and he didn’t even ask us anything. He called the police. It wasn’t what he said. I swear.” Kente said, trying to keep his voice from shaking. He had been terrified in the police car and the juvenile facility. All the anger drained from Kent at his son’s words. He knew when Kente was lying and he wasn’t on this.
    “Son, go upstairs. I’ll be up there soon. Kent glanced at Cina and noting her stony face, he said, “We will be up there later. Son, we love you.”
    Kente nodded and raced upstairs. Kent sat down next to Cina but her arms were still crossed and he knew she would smack him too. A small thrill ran through him at how worked up Cina could get.
    “Kent Markham, that’s my son and if the school calls again with that kind of message, I’ll probably go out there. I didn’t think to call you.”
    “I know baby. I might have overreacted.”
    “Might have?! You stormed in there and didn’t acknowledge me; right after that man treated me like a baby mama.” She filled her husband in on Harrison’s words.
    “We need to talk to him tomorrow. I’m going to homeschool Kent this summer and next year. I do the insurance stuff and can do that from home. We can also afford to hire someone.”
    “Homeschool? What do you know about that, Kent, and why you? I’m the one who taught school.”

    Available for preorder: Charlotte Returns
    Charlotte!" Whipping around at the sound of a familiar booming voice, Charlotte was stunned to see a big guy in a wheelchair approaching her. His face was vaguely familiar. The man had nice dark skin, a full face, greying hair and piercing eyes.

    "Charlotte, it's Mark, Mark Steele."

    A range of emotions flickered across Charlotte's face. Mark had been her first love out of college but he wanted marriage and kids and she wanted to act and travel the world. Now twenty years later she was back and sleeping in her childhood bedroom; broke and disillusioned and Marvin had no legs. Her mouth opened in an O. Mark grinned and she saw remnants of the younger man. The huge white toothed grin gave it away.

    "It's okay. I lost my legs ten years ago in an accident but life is good. How are you, you look great."

    Reaching up to brush back her flyaway hair Charlotte knew that at forty two she did look great but that and the twelve dollars in her purse would get her dinner. She was tall, very fit and shapely and her sienna colored skin shone with health but it was all a facade. She had given acting her all, forgoing everything else and her break never came.

    Several months earlier rather than end up homeless she returned home. Her mom had been quite gracious in words and actions but Charlotte knew she was disappointed. They had given her an Ivy League education and she had nothing to show for it but busted dreams.

    "Thanks Mark." Charlotte finally said.

    "Do you have time for lunch? I would love to catch up" There was something almost eager in Mark’s words. Charlotte had no plans. She had just gotten hired by Kelly services as a substitute teacher for fifteen dollars an hour, so why not.

    "Sure..." she said and watched Mark point his wheelchair towards Tapas in the Park, an overpriced bistro with excellent tapas. Tapas she couldn't afford.

    Once they were seated and placed their orders, Mark stared at her as if she were a mirage and would disappear if he blinked.

    "I can't believe it's you. Whenever I saw your mom she would say you were in New York or Paris or somewhere but not much else. How is the acting going?"

    "It isn't. It never really did. I worked here and there but mostly I auditioned and moved around. I got tired and came home. That's the whole story. I'm living with mom and going to sub as a teacher." More than sounding bitter she sounded tired. Her eyes met his almost defiantly.

    "I loved you so much. You were everything to me. I got married but when I lost my legs we broke up. I got a huge settlement because my car was hit by an internationally known company truck. My ex took her portion and left. It's good though. I live well and do some volunteerism. I have several acres outside the city, just me and a few horses." Charlotte's eyes lit up at the mention of horses as Mark knew they would. Charlotte loved horses and riding.

    "That's nice."

    "I have a chestnut Arabian. I named her Char. She's a beauty." Mark said, watching Charlotte.

    Her face transformed at the thought of riding an Arabian. Horses were her second love after acting. "You should come see her. There are six others but she's the prize."

    "Maybe I will. Thanks for lunch but I really need to run. My money has run out on the parking meter. It was great seeing you Mark."

    "Saturday, I'm coming to get you Saturday." Mark said, eagerly.

    "Okay..." Charlotte said, gathering what was left of her food and heading out. Something bloomed in her chest.

    Mark smiled as he wheeled to his specially designed car. He owed Charlotte's mom for telling him exactly where she would be and what time.

    Hello, and as usual, thank you all for returning to In the Chair. Today I want to introduce you to an awesome author, Adrienne Thompson. Take a peek at her work, pop on her site, follow her social networks, and grab a few novels. I promise, you'll love the love she shares. 

    Married at sixteen, a mother twice by seventeen, and thrice a mother and divorced by twenty-four, Adrienne Thompson is no stranger to adversity. Not your typical teenage mother, she went on to complete her college degree and to earn her nursing license. She attributes God's faithfulness as the catalyst for her success in life. Now, having raised three children as a divorced mother, she is sharing a long hidden talent and passion with the world. Using the lessons that life has so expertly taught her as a guideline (betrayal, abusive relationships, self-esteem issues, witnessing the deteriorating effects of drug abuse), she has created stories that will both entertain and inspire the reader.
    Adrienne currently resides in Arkansas in her newly empty nest. Formerly an RN, she now writes and publishes her stories full time. She is also a motivational speaker.

    Looking for a little grown folks’ romance? Be sure to check out the Latter Rain series.
    Real women. Real life. Real LOVE.

    Welcome back everyone to In the Chair. If you're a writer and anything like me, you have a bit of fear of marketing and promotion. Well, today you're in for a treat. LaShaunda Hoffman is here to share her knowledge and get us on the road to success.
    If you have already been following the tour, you have your note supplies at hand and you're ready to jump right in. Okay, take your seats, here's LaShaunda now...
    Thanks for following the Don’t ROCK Fear Blog Tour.
    Welcome to day six of the tour. I would like to thank Ey for letting me share with you today.

    Today’s Promotion Fear - Not Being Able To Keep Up With Promotion
    Yesterday on the tour I talked about finding a balance when it comes to your promotion.  I will be the first to admit with my first book, I overwhelmed myself with my promotion.  It was my first time promoting my own book and I wanted to be everywhere and I didn’t think about balance.  
    I can tell you from experience I do not recommend it. When you overwhelm yourself you end up not promoting at all because you are burned out.  That was me at the end of 2015 worn out.
    These are the lessons I learned and will share with you.


    1. Schedule your promotion.  When you schedule your promotion you have time to do other things like write, spend time with your family or have fun.
    2. Promotion doesn’t take a lot of time – I recommend 15 minutes for promotion engagement.  You’ve already scheduled your promotion, so pop on the platforms for 15 minutes and answer questions or make comments.
    3. Work on 1-3 projects each month. – Don’t try to do a million things each month. You won’t have time and you will burn yourself out.
    4. Have fun – If you are promoting and it’s not fun.  You won’t do it.  Pick the things that you like and do that.
    5. Don’t continue doing the same thing and getting the same results – check your numbers.  If your sales are adding up like you want.  It might be time to change up your promotion.
    6. Don’t promote somewhere just because everyone else is – If your audience isn’t on the platform everyone is on, don’t waste your time.  You want to be where your audience is.
    Now you don’t have to ROCK this fear anymore.  If you follow these suggestions and create a promotion/writing balance you will keep up with your promotion.

    I would like to invite you to register for the Don’t ROCK Fear – Promotion Mindset 7 Day challenge and kick fear in the butt.
    This challenge is for writers, business owners and anyone who is dealing with fear.  Don’t let fear ROCK You. http://bit.ly/PM7Challenge

    You are also welcome to join the See Ya On The Promotion Training Group, where we teach you how to be a social butterfly.

    LaShaunda C. Hoffman took her love for books and turned it into an award winning online magazine, Shades of Romance Magazine.  Her mission in life is to introduce as many books as she can to readers. She’s happily married mother of three who believes in dreams and working hard to achieve them.  She has a promotion strategy program – Virtual Tea With LaShaunda where writers and business owners learn how to create promotion strategies for their online promotions.
    In 2015 she published her first book, Building Online Relationships – One Reader At A Time. A book to help writers stay consistent with their promotion by building relationships with their readers.

    Tell us who your famous family member is?
    Valerie Jones is my mother. She was a member of The Jones Girls.
    17 April 1956- December 2, 2001). Valorie , born April  was the youngest sister of The Jones Girls (Shirley, Brenda). The Jones Girls were hits in the discos that were all the rage in the late '70s and are best known for their hit songs " You Gonna' Make Me Love Somebody Else" and "Nights Over Egypt.". As much as she loved performing, off stage, she was a perpetual student who loved to learn, studying everything from foreign languages to law and politics.But her best role wasn't sister, singer or student. It was mother, and she would pour her love and attention on her son, Phelton. All her skills came together in one perfect role. Her love escalated with him. The songs she wrote to soothe him, were sweeter than any song she ever sang. And the perpetual student became a teacher, helping Phelton to discover and hone his musical talents. It's no mistaking that her legacy lives on in him. 
    The Jones Girls had originally been trained to sing in churches under guidance from their mother, a professional gospel singer named Mary Frazier Jones, who apparently was one of the first artists in the gospel genre to be recorded by RCA. Associates of the mother have recalled the girls being put to use as harmony singers when they were quite little, and being very good at it. The group not only recorded four albums on its own for the Philadelphia International label but also provided background vocals for many Motown artists.Manager Dick Scott developed an interest in the sisters after they switched over to secular music, and the trio began performing as an opener for Detroit stars such as the Four Tops. Diana Ross eventually provided larger exposure for the group by giving the sisters a featured portion within her own stage show. Between the late '70s and early '80s the group scored its string of hits before finally fizzling out into a combination of early retirement and solo careers. In the late '90s a resurgence of interest in the Philly soul sound was the motivation for getting the Jones Girls back in action.

    Valerie Jones died in Detroit on December 2, 2001, at the age of 45.

    Hello, thank you all for returning to The Hotseat Underground where LaSuria Kandi Allman interviews Detroit Songstress Lady A. 
    Lady AT, tell us a little about yourself.

    My name is Aiesha Taylor, I am an R&B/hip-hop artist from Detroit's Northend. I have always loved music. In school I played clarinet, flute, and the drums. My grandparents used to play Earth, Wind, and Fire in their den every weekend and our family would sing and dance. My mom used to play Anita Baker until we knew all the words. As a child I wrote poetry as a hobby. "It's how I expressed myself." Eventually I turned the poetry into songs.
    When I was younger I tried to take music serious but I shortly after found out I was pregnant with my oldest son Traveon. Therefore I dedicated myself to my child. Now he's grown I figured why not try again?

     My childhood friend Hoghead G-note asked me to be on his song "Real Love" that's on spotify and iTunes right now so of course I said yes. Shortly after I became Hoghead Entertainments First Lady. From there I featured on Untamed Payne's song 313 Detroit with other various Detroit artist.

     I just released my new single "The Prize". It's a song dedicated to uplifting women who gave up on all men because of one man that did them wrong. It gives them hope again. I am also working on my first album entitled "Forgiven Pain". Not sure when I will drop it but for now I am pushing my single, which I have copies of for sale.

    Thanks for joining LaSuria Kandi Allman as she welcomes HipHop Artist, Ozzie Brasco to the Hotseat Underground.
    Ozzie Brasco began rapping at the age of 12. As he grew older, he continued with music and felt successful in 2004 when "Breathe Easy", a song with his former crew Ablaze, landed on the desk of Sony.
      Legal issues prevented Ozzie from taking advantage of his opportug gx, xnity back then, but when he came home, he hit the pavement full throttle! With a name change from Odin Skillz to Ozzie Brasco (given to him inx the penitentiary), and a crew name change from Ablaze to Major Issue, the three brothers dropped No Sacrifice, No Victory in 2010, which garnered attention from power house crew Young Money/Cash Money.


     
      Times change, and people grow apart, so as the crew split up to explore other ventures in life, Ozzie stayed doing what he loved, music!!! In 2011, he and a group of friends formed M.A.D.E. or Money All Day Everyday.
      Commonxvly referred to as M.A.D.E. Gang, Ozzie jumped in the captains chair and released his first solo mixtape, The Day The Earth Stood Still, in 2013. Since then, Ozzie and the team have been consistently doing shows and working on new music. With his album, Rise To Power, set to drop July 4th, and The Contender slated to drop later this year, we're looking forward to many big things from Ozzie Brasco and M.A.D.E. #YouKnowDaSetName

    Heeey, the Hotseat Underground with LaSuria Kandi Allman has brought comedy in the house with comedian, Detroit Red. Come in and get a few laughs.
    Hilarious, "Outrageously funny," "Comedic genius," are words that describe Red's comedy.

    Hilarious because sometimes his jokes have a tendency to fly over your head but when you catch them, you can't stop laughing. Outrageously funny because of his dynamic, sixth sense, ad lib abilities and his comedic genius are clearly reflected by his lightening quick wit. Red's humor has the ability to touch the hearts of people from all walks of life; young and old. Although he will make you laugh till it hurts, you will also get the message in his jokes.

    Red started his comedy career in a Detroit based comedy club (CoCo's House of Comedy) in October of 1998. Since his first performance on stage Red has matured into one of the most realistic comedians in the circuit today. Taking his outlook and spin on real life and putting it to jokes, Red will have you doubled over in your seat with laughter. Like all of us, Red (husband and father), has had obstacles to overcome in comedy as well as in "everyday" life but he has found a way to take obstacles and turn them into milestones His enthusiasm and positivity is not only reflected on stage but exudes into every aspect of his life.

    There's not a person Red encounters that is not touched by his positive and humorous outlook on life. If you are in a bad mood Red has a way of always getting that giggle out of you, sometimes before you even realize it your mood is uplifted instantly. Like they say laughter is medicine for the soul. So, Red is not just a comedian he is a doctor for the soul, a comediologist,

    ---if you will. Red is one chosen to bring a smile to your face. So why not enjoy one of God's greatest gifts (laughter) and book Red for your next event. Red is capable of hosting, featuring and headlining comedy shows. He performs clean, as well as, adult comedy and will travel if accommodations are provided. Keeping true to his motto, "No show to big or small" Red knows how to deliver that knock out comedy punch to any type of crowd leaving them wanting more...

     With October being a time for recognizing domestic abuse, I wanted to highlight a scene with Tone'ya from the Women on the Hill. In it, she reveals how easy it is to step back into a dangerous routine. All wrapped in love.

    PART FOUR

    Release


    "Phyl, can I talk to you?" Tone'ya entered the kitchen where I was preparing dinner and climbed onto one of the stools at the bar.
    "Yeah,"
    I put the knife I was using to cut the vegetables on the chopping block and turned to face her. Wiping my hands on a dishtowel, I noticed the nervous way she clasped and unclasped her fingers. 
    “Looks serious, Tone’ya what's the matter?" I pointed at her twitching hands. “You didn't kill anyone, right?" Pulling a stool towards me, I sat opposite Tone’ya, smiled encouragingly and waited patiently.
    "No," She laughed. “You’re so stupid.”
    "Well, then what's the problem?"
    "You know when I was telling you all about how I’ve been feeling about John, my fantasies and such?" She paused, got up from her stool and paced the kitchen.
    "Yes, I remember. Sit down. I am not in the mood to watch you trek back and forth.”
    "Okay. You may think me stupid, but I wasn't just supposing.”
    "I didn't think you were. I've just been wondering when you would say something else about it. You've been walking around looking miserable. That little supposing thing came right out of the blue, so I just figured…"

    "Well, you figured right.” She interrupted. “John and I have been seeing each other again for the past month or so. I guess I was feeling envious of the relationship that you have with Philip and Jenny with Compton, that I felt I just had to give him another chance. Stupid I know. I was just lonely. I guess I was beginning to feel worthless. I have been so frustrated lately. My life has been changing so much and none of it has been for the better. I'm supposed to be taking care of my children and here I am living off you. I'm supposed to be the woman and I am really the child. If it wasn't for you, I would be homeless now. What good am I?"

    "Tone'ya, I can't believe that you have been thinking like that. You should have said something. Have I done anything to make you believe that you're a problem, something to make you believe that you would be better off by putting yourself in a potential war zone? Have I?"

    "No. That's not what I'm saying. It's…it's just me. I've just been wishing that my life were a little more traditional. I have always wanted a husband and children. I guess I have always wanted John. He's all I've ever known. I don't know how I'll make it without him. He has taken anger management classes and even found a new job. I thought things were going to be different. I thought we were going to get back together. The thing is he doesn't want me to take the job. He stupidly assumed that I would sit at home, watch the kids and I guess, just wait to take orders from him. The other night, when I told John that I would be moving out of town, he flipped. It was awful. I was so afraid, stupid me. There I was alone with him and he looked as angry as hell….”

    *****

    "Tone'ya," John flicked on the motel's television and stared blankly at the screen. “I think you need to rethink your plans. You must really be crazy, out of your damned mind if you think I am going to let you just take my girls out of town, just like that.” He turned and snapped his fingers, the ends of his nails brushing the tip of her nose as he performed the act.
    Taking a step backward, Tone'ya anxiously turned and fidgeted with the edge of the comforter that covered the queen sized bed. Trying not to send a nervous glance into his direction, she sidled to its other side and walked into the wash area. With the tips of her fingers, she raised the towel and put it to the side before washing her hands. As the warm water slide over her fingers, Tone'ya watched John's reflection in the mirror. He paced the ratty little room like a chained animal, ever so often popping the bones in his neck as he leaned his head from one side to the other. His lips were moving, but she could hear no words. She was afraid.
    Whatever had incited her to meet him and sneak off to the seedy, smelly motel was gone now. He hadn’t changed. She took note of the way he flexed his shoulder muscles and hoped that he couldn't see her tensing. She was afraid. Things were still the same. His anger was apparently still simmering at the surface.
    "Turn off the water Tone'ya. You have no reason to be afraid. I'm not about to jump on you.”
    Immediately doing as ordered, Tone'ya reached for the nearest dry towel and wrung her hands nervously in its folds.
    "Uhm, you seem kind of antsy.” She strangled the words through the fear that was growing as a lump in her throat.
    "I am just a little ticked off, but I can handle it. Come over here and sit down.” John pointed to the edge of the bed and sat on a spot near the area he assigned to her. "Come on, Tone'ya. He patted the edge of the bed gently. “I promise I won't do anything to you.”
    "All right.”
    Tone'ya tried to smile as she walked towards him. She felt as if it was painted on and she had no control of how it looked. The smile almost slipped, when he put his arms around her shoulders once she was seated. The fingers of his right hand rested on her breast and he nonchalantly drew small circles around its nipple. Making it harden in anticipation. When he gave a deep sigh, she felt the rise and fall of his chest throughout her body and the fear that had her sitting stiffly began to fade away to be replaced by sexual tension.
    Taking a deep breath, she closed her eyes and rested her head on his shoulder. I must be crazy, she thought. How can I be here, knowing how this man used to treat me? What was I thinking? Maybe he has changed or maybe I'm just wishing for something that will never be. When he put her hand on his lap, she trembled with remembrance of the time they had just spent together.
    "John, I…"
    "What?"
    Interrupting her small protest, John laid back and pulled her with him. Rolling over her so that her hands were imprisoned under his chest, he looked down into her face. He watched her reaction through half closed lids, staring into her eyes for a few seconds, before slowly switching his gaze to her lips. Eternity seemed to slip by before he touched her lips with his. His kissed her slowly and thoroughly. His hands roamed her body and played freely with her breast while his body mimicked the actions of his tongue.
    "Do you really want to leave this?" Putting a hand on each of her shoulders and applying his superior strength he pulled her further on to the bed and yanked her blouse and bra from under her; a shock to her because she had never noticed that he had unfastened them.
    "I don't know," Tone'ya answered in confusion, “I…" she involuntarily sucked in her breath at the ecstasy of his teeth nipping at her breast. For the next few minutes, she fought with herself in total confusion and excitement. She wanted to be there and she didn't. One minute she was pushing him away and the next she was pulling him back.
    "John, stop.”
    "Why?"
    He pulled her further up on the bed and held her arms above her head. Looking down at her, John seemed to be giving her a minute to consider her choices. With his hands and mouth off her body, she was able to study him closely. With the anticipation of passion receding, she was able to get her emotions under control. Taking a deep breath, she looked into his face. Forgetting what she was about to say when she saw the way that he was staring at the rise and fall of her chest.
    "John, John," She repeated when he didn't look at her the first time. “Come on. It's late. I have got to go.” She bucked her body and pulled at her arms.
    "That's not a way to get me to let you go.” He laughed. “Actions like that cause other reactions.”
    "It's not what I intended.”
    "You sure?"
    "Yes. Come on. It's already late.” She looked into his eyes and away quickly.
    "All right, all right. Hold on a second.”
    Thinking that he was about to let her go, Tone'ya gave a sigh of relief. Only to find herself recaptured in a duel of passion. This time the combat being fought through its entire sequence.
    "Damn, John. Now I'm really late.” Tone'ya rushed into her clothes. Sitting down in a chair to pull the strings of her shoes tighter, she cursed herself for being so easy.
    "How in the world are you going to leave this, Tone'ya?" John sat up in the bed and pulled the blankets across his waist.
    "I'm going to jump in my car and drive off. The same way that I got here.”
    "I'm not talking about tonight. I'm talking about that stupid idea you have about leaving town.”
    Ignoring his question, Tone'ya dug her car keys out of her purse and let them hang loosely between her fingers.
    "Are you going to stay here the rest of the night?"
    “Maybe and maybe not. Are you going through with your plans to leave town?" He asked again.
    "John," Tone'ya rubbed her right hand across her eyes and down her face. She looked at him steadily. “I really have no choice. When I made the decision, you were nowhere around. You weren't showing any signs that you cared about the girls, let alone me. I had to do what I thought was right. I can’t continue living off Phyl. It’s time I started taking care of my own life. I’ve made a commitment. I can't just back out, now.”
    "You could if you wanted to.” He flexed his shoulders and popped the bones in his neck again, one side and then the other.
    "I can't.” Tone'ya raised her voice in exasperation.
    A mistake on her part, John jumped from the bed and clutched her two hands in his one. Jerking her towards him, their bodies collided. Looking up quickly, Tone'ya's anxious glance sparred with the anger in his.
    "Are you sure?" He stated each word slowly.
    "Pretty sure. Damn it, John.” She swallowed nervously. “If I could change things, I would. It's a good paying job. I should think that you would want me to make money. There are things that the girls need that I'm just unable to give them.”
    "Are you sure?" He questioned her again.
    Taking in account the way John was breathing quietly, Tone'ya believed that he had control of himself and answered slowly.

    "John if I could change everything, I would. Why don't you think about moving over with us?"

    "Right. I just got this job, Tone'ya.” He let her hands go and moved to crawl back under the comforter. “I can't just up and leave.”

    "Are you sure?"
    John smiled at the way she threw his question back at him and shook his head in the positive while lighting a cigarette from the package on the nightstand.

    "Pretty damned sure. Go ahead and go home, Tone'ya. I guess I will stay here the rest of the night. I may as well. I already paid for the room.”

    "All right.” She opened the door and stepped out, turning back just before closing it. “I'll call you tomorrow.”

    "Fine.”

    He waved his hand in dismissal and she closed the door.

    "And now," Tone'ya finished her narrative. “I don't know what to do. I have been worrying about this for the past few days.”
    Tone'ya picked up the dishtowel I had put down earlier and pretended to find its daisy pattern interesting. She looked like a little girl waiting to be scolded and so I reached out to her. Leaving my stool, I put my arms around her shoulders, offered her comfort, and advice.
    "Tone'ya, what is the real reason that you got back involved with John? You knew all of the reasons to back off and yet you didn't. Think about it. The first thing that comes into your mind is probably the basis of it all.”
    "Sex.”Tone'ya answered without wasting any time on contemplation. “That's the first thing that came to my mind, and the second and the third. John was as good at that as he was at losing his temper. I just figure better him than a stranger.”

    "Tone'ya," I clicked my tongue in disbelief and annoyance. “You know and I know that you would not put yourself back into a potentially abusive situation just to have sex. You may talk it with the rest of the girls, but I live with you. I know you differently. There is more to the situation than that.”

    "You're right. I feel that deep down I must love him. I have to. He stays on my mind, even though I know he is the worst choice in the world. I know I'm not so shallow that I would sleep with someone just for the sake of sex. I keep telling myself that I am as stupid as hell, but my heart will not listen. When I think of him, I forget all of the lies, all of the pain. The only thing I can remember is how it used to be. Our life was good then. We talked a lot, laughed a lot, and had lots of sex. It was more than that, though.”
    Tone'ya stood and as she did so my arm fell from her shoulders and I went to sit back on my stool. "Can you understand what I am saying, Phyl? Do you think I am stupid?"

    "No, I don't think you’re stupid. I know what you're going through. I used to wish every night that Rosie's dad would come back. He ran out on me when I was expecting his child and yet I wanted him. I missed him. He could have stayed away for centuries and the day he would have walked back in the door would have been like heaven to me. I wanted him that bad. It took a while to get over, almost until I met Philip, but that was me. I had to replace him in my heart before I was released from those feelings. It's not the same with you.”

    "No, it’s not. Am I a fool? I don't want to replace him. I just…I don't think I want to be with him forever, but I don't want to lose him. Hell, yes I'm stupid.” Tone'ya suddenly turned and faced me as if she d had a revelation.

    "Phyl," She sat down on the stool she had vacated. “It's not love that has me running to him. Oh, my God.” She slapped herself on the forehead with the palm of her hand. “It's the same feelings I had just before I threw him out of the house. Oh, my God. As I think about it, I remember how I would do anything for him in that last year. I was so consumed with a hypnotic fear back then that I thought whatever he said was the bomb. I would do, say, and feel whatever I thought he wanted. Nothing was from inside of me. I would be whatever he wanted as long as he would touch me with love. I would rather him touch me sexually than in the anger he usually showed. Oh, my God.” She stood and paced the room.
    "I can see it clearly, now. All of the conversations I have been having on the phone with John lately were just a form of bait, a habit, and a way for him to get to play with my mind. I should never have started talking to him again. I began to tell him anything I thought he wanted and he played me right along. Before I knew it, I was smack dab in the middle of a queen sized bed in a third rate motel. He knows the exact words and phrases that will get me in my zombie phase. Damn.”
    Tone'ya screeched and stopped in the middle of her pacing. Her hand covered her mouth as if she were in shock.

    "What?" The stricken look on her face was so comical that it almost made me want to laugh. "Tone'ya it's not the end of the world. We all do stupid things. This is no big deal, just sex. Don't do it with him again. Everything is an experience to learn from. You can forgive yourself.”

    "Damn, girl," She dragged herself back to the stool and sat down. Letting her head hit the bar s surface with a resounding bang, she shook it in the negative.

    "What, Tone'ya?" I reached over and patted her on the shoulder. "You may as well tell me. What could be worse than going back to the ex-lover that almost beat the life out of you?"
    I tried to joke. She raised her head and looked at me briefly before answering. No smile was on her face.

    "Going back to the ex-lover that almost beat the life out of you and having sex with him, without using protection.” She let her head fall back to the cabinet top, banging it over and over.

    "Tone'ya.” I tried to swallow my exasperation, placing my hand on her head to stop her from banging it. “I know you didn't…"

    "Yes, I did. Oh, my God I had forgotten that. How could I have been so stupid? I wouldn't be surprised if he had planned that to happen.”

    "Tone'ya now, let's be fair. You're my friend and I love you dearly, but you were there. You could have said something. You could have said, no.”

    "I tell you, I feel it in my soul.” She raised her head and looked at me in earnest. “He planned that last episode. The first time, before I told him about the move, we did use protection. But, the second time…I was dressed, ready to leave and he had me so afraid that he was about to go left, I didn't protest too much. I wasn't thinking clearly. I just wanted to get out the way I had gone in. I'm not saying he raped me, nothing like that. Things just got out of hand. I was just so confused that before I knew it, I was undressed and it was too late. I'll tell you one thing, if my girls ever come to me with the same kind of problem, I promise not to judge them. This is such a mess. I could kill myself.”

    "The Women of the Hill" by Ey Wade on Ganxy
  • Oct 19, 16
    Heeey, glad to see everyone returning to the site. I'm excited to continue sharing my blog with LaSuria Kandi Allman and join her as she interviews music producer, and musician, Antun Foster.


    Antun Foster is a native of Detroit, MI. and has been ministering in music since the age of 15. As a self-taught musician, he has astounded legends with his melodic skill and creativity. 
    Soon after being discovered by Elbertina “Twinkie” Clark, Foster toured with the famous Clark Sisters, traveling the USA and foreign countries as one of the music directors in their band.

    Since his humble beginning, Antun Foster made his mark as a premiere organist by touring with such legends as the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, the Clark Sisters, the Winans, Donnie McClurkin, and Vickie Winans. Former music director for Karen Clark-Sheard, Antun is currently working on several projects writing, producing and arranging music for many artists.





      Foster’s reputation exceeds the concert arena. His most recent “Shake Yourself Loose” remained #1 for eight weeks on the Billboard Charts and earned him a stellar nomination for “Song Writer of the Year” and two BMI awards for
    “Song Writer of the Year” and “Publisher of the Year”. 
    Foster produced the CD projects “All About Love” featuring Orlando Wright and “Fire” featuring the Greater Ebenezer Full Gospel Baptist Church, which also climbed the charts and remained #1 for six weeks. He has published numerous songs, including: “I’m Hooked”, “Work It Out” and “Shake
    Yourself Loose” (Vicki Winans); “Power” (Michigan State Mass); “I Am The One” (Ron

    Winans Family and Friends IV); “Walking In My Season” (Ron Winans V); “He is Lord”

Chise, tell us a little about yourself.

     Hi, My Name is Ashaun Mason, but on stage from show to show, I'm known as CHISE (3269). I am a upcoming HipHop artist that just so happens to dip and dab in R&B.
     I was born July 12, 1988in Detroit, Mi. While growing up on the Eastside of Detroit, Even at a young age I always found comfort in doing Music. When pertaining to my family, I come from a very heavy musical background. My first introduction to music came through being active in church.

    While striving to do R&B it was through my brother at the age of 12, I develop a taste for HipHop. While converting over it was then, When me and my best friend (Terse) as well as other friends formed a Hip-hop group called the "D-Boyz". It would be years later due to the popularity of the name, We decided to change the name of the group to "3269" which to this day I am still a active member of. By the age of 18, I was attending college in Los Angeles, Ca. Where I majored in Media production at AIU(Buckhead). While grinding heavy I was able to network with many artists, producers, and other associates.
     I lived in L.A for year and a half then moved to Atlanta where I continued my education at AIU.
    While steady grinding doing music after two years in Atlanta, I returned home to Detroit. Right now I am currently promoting my first solo mixtape called "Something Special".. I have made and release 4 music video's off my mixtape. First video is "Pray For Me", Second video is "FEEL GOOD MUZIC" feat Terse dude (3269), Third video is "Forever" feat Rack Reg & Stef, and the fourth video is "The Women You Are". All my Music Video's can be found on "Youtube" with the search of: 3269 Chise. Recently,  I have been bless to be to be a contestant of 3 "ShowStoppers" Showcases which was sponsored by: WORLDWIDECORE RADIO.

     In two of those showcases I placed "2nd" and in one showcase I placed "1st". By doing this, I am the only artist in History to be the holder of 3 "SHOWSTOPPERS" trophies. I was also a participant of the 1st annual "DETROIT UP NEXT" SHOWCASE, which was sponsored by "CSE MUSICGROUP". In this showcase I placed "2nd" as well. This year I have also been selected to grace the cover of " Urban DJ MAGAZINE" Freshman Class of 2016 ISSUE, that will be coming out late October 2016. As a upcoming artist from Detroit, I look forward to becoming a artist the people can love to grow with. My dream is to truly bring Something Special to the culture of Hip-hop and also to many generation to come.

    Biography. “Monte grew up on 7 mile on Detroit’s west side. Even at a young age Monte always had a larger
     than life aura about him. At college, a classmate introduced Monte to the business of music and 
    the possibility of becoming a professional recording artist.

     Monte had rapped in high school but never thought about doing it for a living. 
    Always poetic in speech, Monte quickly found out this was his true calling, an ambassador of music,
     specifically in hip hop and it's culture and art. 
    True hip hop illustrates a combination of pain, angst, sorrow and an urban depiction of hard

    ships that anyone can relate to. It also includes upbeat feel-good songs and somber ballads.
     Because of his naturally outgoing personality, along with his range of emotions and charisma.
     Monte is able to reach a wide range of audiences. 
    His focus is building what truly matters People plus Music.”

As a precaution, she is often times accompanied by an escort to ensure that whomever she spends her time with does not take advantage of her femininity.

     Erin’s experience as an actress ranges from playing the background as an extra for Stomp the Yard 2 in 2009, feature roles on the big screen in 2011 release “The Citizen” and “SextMessaging” in 2012. 

    Needless to say she has owned the runway walking in everything from local events and small celebrations, to huge fashion shows like, PeaceLoveSpandex that attract designers and patrons from all over the world to Detroit.

    Most recently Erin has graced the Cover of BX25 and Feature in GEI magazine’s 2014 Swimsuit and Lingerie edition and has also been cast in Eloise which will be released next year. Erin welcomes her fans to follow her on all social media outlets using her fan page on Facebook

    Welcome back. Take a seat and enjoy an interview between LaSuria Kandi Allman and Hip Hop artist UnKut Cain.

    Unkut Cain is an upcoming Hip Hop/ Rap Artist, currently under Unkut World Publishing. Born and raised in the mean streets of Detroit, Michigan; at a time when crack reared it’s ugly face into the society in which he was to grow up into Adulthood. He has gone through everything, from being abandoned at a young age by a mother that didn’t want him; to being shot, and selling drugs just to survive.
    Now, he is dealing with the stress of trying to be a father to his children, something he never had; and trying to balance his music career at the same time. He has often been compared to the late great 2Pac Shakur, Ja Rule and DMX, due to his raspy voice, grittiness and delivery. He has appeared in numerous showcases, open mics, National tours, and various other venues. He is definitely a FORCE to be reckoned within this music industry. So if you want to know an Entertainer that is as true to his craft as you are to yourself, then stop by and check him out… He will be releasing his EP "Street Orphan" produced by KIDD the Producer(B.G.’s Heart of the Streets, Living Legend, Life after Cash Money) sometime early 2017. So be on the lookout for it. He has features from Charles “GATOR” Moore (Straight Fucking-Baby boy Sndtrk), Revelation T. Johnson (Makaveli Music Group/Island Def Jam), Robert “Magnum” Curry(Day 26) and many more...

    She's baaaaack!!! I know it's been a while but Lasuria Kandi Allman is back and the interviews are rolling in for a new edition of The Hotseat- THE UNDERGROUND. The first guest in the Hotseat Underground  is Michael "Black Rain" Flowers

    Michael Flowers also known as Rain, was born on May 19th, 1982. He grew up on the west side of Detroit raised by both parents. During his childhood he was exposed to different genres of music from artists such as The Funkadelic's, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and NWA. He gives credit to his father and uncle for that exposure, it caused him to fall in love with music but he ultimately fell in love with the creativity and the lyrical word play of hip-hop.


    His early experimentation with music bought him to a place of uncertainty, he couldn't decide which avenue he wanted to take and took a sabbatical from music. In 1996, at Redford High School, he found himself running the hallways with the wrong crowd. This behavior later led to him hustling, chasing girls and being unfocused in life. One day in the lunch room, the intriguing sound of a cipher going on caught his attention. It was at that moment his love for hip-hop was rekindled. Despite his love for the music, it still took a backseat to the hustle.

     In 2005, the street life almost got the best of him as his vehicle was shot at numerous times with his cousin being shot however he was unharmed by the grace of God. It was then he realized hustling was no longer for him and he wanted more. He wanted to live freely and make his love for music known to the world. In 2006, he started the journey to reconcile his life. He acquired a position that gave him the time to be more focused on fufilling his dreams.


    The birth of "The Bad Guys"... a group that included him, Killa Kev, General Beans, and Philly Fresh worked diligently to record 'Bad News The Mix Tape'. The mixtape was independently sold around the city with hopes of building an audience and eventually being the next big thing. Shortly after 'Bad News' hit the streets the group was dismantled but Rain decided to continue on with his journey to become a star!!! With the advice of Killa Kev, he decided to become a writer. In a matter of months he wrote 18 songs which he's currently in the studio recording new songs weekly. He has toured in different states, currently has songs in rotation, radio interview and recently released his first mixtape Rain Organics... and is currently working on material for the upcoming cd.. Fresh off the Runway!.

    Welcome everyone to In the Chair- the character interview edition. Anabelle Lee here from the highly controversial novel Ribbons & Belle. My author Ey Wade has given me the honor of interviewing Deborah, one of the cast members from One Sunday at a Time.

    Sit back and let's see whats going on.
    Tell me about your book. 
    In this soap opera in print, the main character, Deborah, asks herself, “What does crazy look like?” Let Deborah tell it, it's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live.
     But working full-time, being a full-time mother, full-time wife and a full-time Sunday only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her. With all the scheming and shenanigans Deborah orchestrated to get this lifestyle, she might have to come up with a whole set of new ones to maintain it.
    Lynox is Deborah's husband who she thanks God for putting back into her life after a game of cat and mouse that defies the laws of romance. He feels that all Deborah needs is to let her hair down, maybe make some new friends and live a little. When Deborah agrees and then suspects Lynox of having an affair with the woman that he suggested she form a friendship with, will he live to regret his own advice? 


    What do you like about your situation in your book? I like the fact that I’m transparent. I show the emotions that some women who are overwhelmed in life hide under a mask each and every day. I don’t necessarily take off the mask, but readers are privy to what’s under it. I ask that question that so many women ask themselves: “Am I crazy?” I portray the struggle and sometimes shame of seeking help. I answer the questions of whether a Christian needs more than God and prayer when their mind isn’t right. It’s hard being real and raw, but I know I’m going to save someone’s life in the process.


    What do you dislike about your situation in your book? I dislike the fact that I didn’t take off that fricken mask I’ve been hiding behind. I knew I was in mental pain, yet I did not continue seeking help from the resources that had been made available to me. I dislike that I gave up on God and His resources and looked to man.

    I can understand that, I had a few issues in my story that made me question things. If you had a chance to rewrite your ‘story’, what would you change? 
    I would change the fact that those around me didn’t yoke me up by the collar and tell me like it is. I believe that we can keep it real with one another and be diplomatic at the same time. Keeping it real doesn’t necessarily mean hurting someone’s feelings. It’s all in the delivery. We have to be one another’s keeper. Notice how some of the tragedy that has struck America, right down to acts of terrorism, could maybe have been avoided if someone had spoken up about some of the things they saw in a person…some of their behaviors and characteristics.

    What would you keep? I would keep the fact that my husband had a true, praying friend. This friend didn’t have the label of a Christian, but he was full of wisdom and belief. There are two types of friends. There is that one friend that if you say you are going to go drive off of a bridge, she’s getting in the passenger side and riding with you. Then there is that friend who says, “Hold up. That might not be such a good idea.” Both types play a role in our lives, but that friend with wisdom is priceless.

    Do you have a family? If so, tell me about your family life? I have a family. I have a loving and drop dead handsome husband. I have a son from a previous relationship and a son with my husband. As much as I love them all, I still did things to hurt them. I hurt them because I was too proud to get the help I needed to get my life under control. Because of that, I risk losing my family.

    What do you wish people will learn/ enjoy about your story? Even though romance is the number one selling genre, just the opposite is reflected in my story. My story is about pain. Pain is one thing that connects us all; everyone has experienced it at one point or another in life. My prayer is that from my story others will learn how to cope with pain, get delivered from pain, and most importantly, walk in that deliverance
    .
    What do you really think about your author? She was interviewed here, earlier and had great things to say about you. My author is me, and I’m so proud of her for being transparent to the world.

    Welcome everyone to In the Chair- the character interview edition. Anabelle Lee here from the highly controversial novel Ribbons & Belle. My author Ey Wade has given me the honor of interviewing Deborah, one of the cast members from One Sunday at a Time.

    Sit back and let's see whats going on.
    Tell me about your book. 
    In this soap opera in print, the main character, Deborah, asks herself, “What does crazy look like?” Let Deborah tell it, it's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live.
     But working full-time, being a full-time mother, full-time wife and a full-time Sunday only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her. With all the scheming and shenanigans Deborah orchestrated to get this lifestyle, she might have to come up with a whole set of new ones to maintain it.
    Lynox is Deborah's husband who she thanks God for putting back into her life after a game of cat and mouse that defies the laws of romance. He feels that all Deborah needs is to let her hair down, maybe make some new friends and live a little. When Deborah agrees and then suspects Lynox of having an affair with the woman that he suggested she form a friendship with, will he live to regret his own advice? 


    What do you like about your situation in your book? I like the fact that I’m transparent. I show the emotions that some women who are overwhelmed in life hide under a mask each and every day. I don’t necessarily take off the mask, but readers are privy to what’s under it. I ask that question that so many women ask themselves: “Am I crazy?” I portray the struggle and sometimes shame of seeking help. I answer the questions of whether a Christian needs more than God and prayer when their mind isn’t right. It’s hard being real and raw, but I know I’m going to save someone’s life in the process.


    What do you dislike about your situation in your book? I dislike the fact that I didn’t take off that fricken mask I’ve been hiding behind. I knew I was in mental pain, yet I did not continue seeking help from the resources that had been made available to me. I dislike that I gave up on God and His resources and looked to man.

    I can understand that, I had a few issues in my story that made me question things. If you had a chance to rewrite your ‘story’, what would you change? 
    I would change the fact that those around me didn’t yoke me up by the collar and tell me like it is. I believe that we can keep it real with one another and be diplomatic at the same time. Keeping it real doesn’t necessarily mean hurting someone’s feelings. It’s all in the delivery. We have to be one another’s keeper. Notice how some of the tragedy that has struck America, right down to acts of terrorism, could maybe have been avoided if someone had spoken up about some of the things they saw in a person…some of their behaviors and characteristics.

    What would you keep? I would keep the fact that my husband had a true, praying friend. This friend didn’t have the label of a Christian, but he was full of wisdom and belief. There are two types of friends. There is that one friend that if you say you are going to go drive off of a bridge, she’s getting in the passenger side and riding with you. Then there is that friend who says, “Hold up. That might not be such a good idea.” Both types play a role in our lives, but that friend with wisdom is priceless.

    Do you have a family? If so, tell me about your family life? I have a family. I have a loving and drop dead handsome husband. I have a son from a previous relationship and a son with my husband. As much as I love them all, I still did things to hurt them. I hurt them because I was too proud to get the help I needed to get my life under control. Because of that, I risk losing my family.

    What do you wish people will learn/ enjoy about your story? Even though romance is the number one selling genre, just the opposite is reflected in my story. My story is about pain. Pain is one thing that connects us all; everyone has experienced it at one point or another in life. My prayer is that from my story others will learn how to cope with pain, get delivered from pain, and most importantly, walk in that deliverance
    .
    What do you really think about your author? She was interviewed here, earlier and had great things to say about you. My author is me, and I’m so proud of her for being transparent to the world. I don’t feel she’s hiding behind my character to tell her own story. Instead, the same way God used her, she used me. It’s an honor and feels good to be a willing vessel.
