Momma set me on the jukebox. So begins the personal story of Denise (Sweetie) Wooten, set between a post-civil rights era New York City and a growing, but stale rural Alabama. We are thrust in the midst of a family longing for normalcy, but instead struggling with illness and all that comes with it; denial, anger and misunderstanding and love. As cultures clash, we see the family through a child s eyes and walk with her as she makes sense of war fought far away, but with effects close to home, and a tragedy that changes her life forever. More truth than not, Momma: Gone is a story of survival, where all the lessons are taught by the child who must eventually lead them through and a classic American story of overcoming life s misfortunes to find the bloom on the other side. -Shortlisted for a Doctorow Award in Innovative Fiction

PROJECT AMERICA: Memoirs of Faith and Hope to Win the Future, is one of the most impactful and relevant literary works of our time. The author, Dr. Marshall E. Hatch, sheds light on the timeless maxim that "each generation must chart its own course." In looking back to Dr. King's global vision, he conscientiously looks forward to summon the probing question "Where do we go from here?" Project America offers a nostalgic yet visionary memoir that weaves together scenes from the author's personal journey with historical analysis and commentaries to address contemporary public policy issues. In his expansive, thoughtful, and powerful treatise, Dr. Hatch presents us with the challenge to move forward, beyond the sins of America's shameful history of slavery to a "symphony" for winning the future. In this literary treasure-trove, Hatch's four symphonic movements unfold as the pathway to fulfilling the American promise, including a massive investment in education, adapting to the changing complexion of world power, embracing environmental stewardship, and renewing our faith to reengage the social covenant with the American people. Through Project America, we reflect upon Chicago's and the nation's past. While learning from Hatch's insights, we are encouraged to draw from the wellsprings of our faiths and to act purposefully together to achieve "a brand new world." Project America is truly within our grasp; therefore, let us heed Dr. Hatch's clarion call to make a brighter future start happening now.

With Love Continue my journey again with me soon my friends. I am so grateful that God has chosen me to tell them. I do have a voice, a voice that no one can take away from me. Oh how I love Jesus. What he has done with my life is so amazing and he will, help you. He is real, make no mistake about it. Seek him, seek his face with diligence in your heart, he answers us my friends.. I realized Christ was always my friend but I let the worlds issues get in the way and I, pushed him aside. But once I surrendered my everything to him I have learned to watch for him, watch for him like never before. Finding Christ is the best joy I've ever experienced in my life so I'm telling you, pray my friends, pray that he'll come for you and soon you too will rest in HIS peace and if you are in it, stay and wait on him. Wait on him to continue putting your life in order because if it weren't for him, we wouldn't be here. (Thanks for that Daddy.) Isaiah: 41 v 13

In her witty, southern-fried suspense novels, Sarah Shankman delivers nonstop action with a hilarious bite. Now she sends her acclaimed, irreverent heroine -- New Orleans writer Samantha Adams -- to a southwestern New Age hot spot, to unearth a secret past that was supposed to be six feet under. My dearest Sugar. I must see you. It's urgent. I need your help. The letter that arrived from Sam's mother was postmarked Santa Fe, penned in her mother's handwriting, and disclosed details only Johanna Adams could know. There was just one catch: Johanna Adams had been dead for thirty-four years. The mind-blowing missive could have been an entry from Sam's latest book of bizarre anecdotes, American Weird -- or an elaborate hoax. Either way, it instantly rekindled Sam's impossible wish that her mother hadn't really died in a plane crash when Sam was a child. Fueled by her journalistic instincts -- and a daughter's need for closure -- Sam touches down among Santa Fe's tourists and crystal gazers, jewelry shops and fast-food stands. But only when she summons the courage to knock on the door of Room 409 at the La Fonda Hotel does her surreal, mother-seeking adventure take off with no turning back.

“Damn, it’s been a long time coming. But it’s finally here,” Pokey said to no one in particular, as the day arrived for him to be released from the prison that held him hostage against his own will for the last eighteen months, day by day, as he walked out the open gates. He was blinded by the bright sun. Reaching up to cover his eyes, he heard a horn blowing. Looking around for the sound of the horn, he spotted his mother’s beat-up Honda. As he watched his mother get out of the car and slowly walk toward him, Pokey had one thing in mind. “Man, I gotta make sum Major Doe,” he was thinking, as his mother reached out and gave him a hug. “Thanks, Mom. Glad I didn’t have to ride that stank-ass bus all the way home,” he told his mother, who just smiled as she turned around and made her way back to the car, with Pokey on her heels. “I don’t know what you coming on this side for,” his mother said, pushing him over to the driver’s side. “You driving,” she said. “I gotta get some beauty sleep,” she said, sliding in the car. On the ride home, it was quiet, with Pokey in his own thoughts. As he was listening to his mother snore lightly, he promised, “Momma, I’mma make shit happen.” Being in prison, Pokey learned a lot, but he also learned that if you want something bad enough, you gotta go get it. With that in mind and the words Old School used to tell him all the time. “Young blood, you gotta be ruthless in the game of life. Sometimes you will be forced to bite the hands that feed you, so always keep in mind game ain’t based on sympathy. If a motherfucker wanna get in your way, don’t hesitate to roll over them, and leave them where they lay.” As he was in deep thought, his mother brought him back to the here and now. “So, boy, now that you free, what you gonna do to stay free?” his mother asked, turning in her seat to face him. “Whatever I gotta do,” Pokey said, keeping it real. “So you gonna get a job?” his mother asked. “Never, Mom. You know me. I ain’t working no nine-to-five for no minimum wage so that working shit is dead,” he said. While driving, as he looked out the corner of his eye, he saw his mother shake her head, as she closed her eyes and stopped talking. But he went back to thinking. “Damn shit crazy, when ya own momma trying to keep you down, she on some ‘get a job’ shit, but I’mma live and die in the streets.” As he pulled up in the projects, where they stayed, he noticed nothing has changed, but changes were about to take place, if he had something to do with it. “My thing is, to be paid and get my game sharper than a motherfucking razor blade.” As he pulled up and parked, he said, “Ma, we here.” Waking up, all his mother did was look at him, then exit the car. As Pokey watched his mother enter the house, he said, “This the shit I’m talking about, a nigga been gone eighteen months, leave with nothing and come home with nothing, so it’s time I make something.” Looking around, shaking his head at all the dirty buildings that held this project together, his last thought was, “Now I gotta get some soldiers on my team and make this picture come to life,” as he looked around one more time before walking into the house. He mumbled, “GABOS, this time around, that’s how it’s gonna be. Niggaz showed no love, they receive none.” With that being said, he walked into the house ready to take a nice long shower before he could formulate his next move, not forgetting his next move better be his best move ’cause GABOS.
