The Authors Show, Online Radio Outlet, Announces Six Guests Have Been Selected To Travel To China

The Authors Show helps “Give Voice to Women through the Arts” by facilitating the selection of six of its show guests to travel to China under a grant from the U. S. State Department.

When the U.S. State Department issued a grant titled "Give Voice to Women through the Arts” as part of its cultural exchange program, Danielle Hampson, Executive Producer of The Authors Show, who volunteers her time and resources to help the mission of World Academy for the Future of Women (WAFW) around the globe wasted no time, and turned to her extensive pool of authors to help WAFW find writers and illustrators qualified to teach a module in China. 

Following interviews and training at the WAFW headquarters in Phoenix, AZ, the following women were selected to travel for five weeks as facilitators for WAFW in China between September 2017 and June 2018:

Leslie Karen Hammond (CT), Norma Thompson Hollis (CA), Jacqui Letran (NC), Cindy Lewis (FL), Mildred D. Muhammad (MD), Shanalee Sharboneau (TX).

“Art is the expression of imagination that conveys beauty and emotions, and artists express themselves in different ways," Hampson stated. "Like the painter who paints and the musician who performs music, writers write and illustrators draw  to express their creativity. They are all artists thus it made sense to me to include them in this program, and knowing the quality of the thousands of authors The Authors Show has processed in over a decade,  I knew we would find among them candidates who would fit the criteria set forth by WAFW.”

Since 2009 WAFW has been sending volunteer facilitators to Sias Int’l University in Henan province, China, to teach modules that are part of an extensive advanced global leadership program for young university women that address the UN Development Goals in emerging nations.  WAFW’s  “voice” can be heard online at WorldAcademyRadio.com, a podcast created and hosted by Ms. Hampson to give Academy students, alumni and facilitators a platform to share their experience with WAFW, and the life changing outcome these modules create for participating students.

Author Skye Gordon Announces Release of New Novel, 'The Comeuppance'

The new book details the fictional story of an abused and scarred young girl's path to forgiveness

Author Skye Gordon has announced the release of a new novel, 'The Comeuppance'. As one of the authors of great literary erotic fiction, Skye Gordon produces works of wildly entertaining fiction that are engrossing, captivating and tantalizing. In a comparable genre of '50 Shades of Gray', her books are earthy and passionate, but unlike many books in the genre, Gordon addresses a number of serious social issues within a broader context of literary erotica.

Her command of the English language and deft storytelling combine to produce not just a book, but an experience. Her characters are flawed, but delightfully and fully human. Deficiency transforms into strength of character – imperfection leads to redemption and finally to forgiveness and acceptance.

40 year old Sheila is the central character of the book. Beneath her cool exterior lies a little girl trapped inside a nightmare.

A woman scorned... except, in this case, it is not a woman. It is a little girl trapped in a world she cannot understand. She cannot adjust and so she acts out the forces of what she perceives is evil...leading her to develop behaviors in order to survive. As she matures, fortuitous events cross her path, including finding a job with Michael, a clever businessman with a dangerous company.

Being a high-end prostitute, escort, madame and a dominatrix in an S&M environment meets her addiction needs – but business and her past don't mix. Revenge may be the only way to kill the ghosts of her haunted past. What if she kills the boy that started it all? Will killing him succeed in erasing her sordid past? And what if she finds out there is no revenge, but find a circuitous path of forgiveness and redemption instead?

"I wrote this book to highlight the plight of many young and innocent children in this country and any other country in the world," Gordon stated. "How they can be and are indeed exploited in many ways – physically, mentally and sexually is illustrated in this story. I have seen this firsthand happen to a young neighbor completely unable to defend herself. It can serve to alert the proper authorities – be it the parents, the relatives and neighbors. There are signs and symptoms that can be gleaned from the child's behavior that might indicate some of these abuses being perpetuated. In the case of Sheila, she had no defense mechanisms except for a distanced mother who could only commiserate with her living conditions. Through her own efforts and fortuitous circumstances, she went on with life and found a way of mending her broken life."

Reviews have praised 'The Comeuppance'. One said, "The book has a strong narrative, seasoned by delicious erotic flavorings, joined in a most satisfying mix." Another stated, "The core strength is in the narrative and it is a good one."

Skye Gordon is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at lou21qp@yahoo.com. Readers can also visit her Facebook page. "The Comeuppance" is available at Amazon. More information, including a sample and a blog, is available at Gordon's website at http://www.authorskyegordon.com.

About Skye Gordon:

Skye Gordon resides in New York City. A former academic, she has written and published non-fiction articles in technical magazines. She now devotes herself to writing full time and volunteering. She prides herself to being a good listener and an observer of human behavior and life where she gets her passion for writing. She has jointly published a book of poetry “Hidden in the Light” with the Hamilton Poets of New York.

Angel Catches Boy Who Falls 7 Stories - True Says Donna Louis, Author Of 'Miracles of Direction'

Louis' book, ‘Miracles of Direction’, is an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. Louis has made the book available to Christian charities as a fundraising tool.

A recent story on CBS News titled "An angel caught him: Boy survives 7 story fall" related a story about a child who fell 7 stories and walked away. The 5-year boy was leaning on a screen at a condo in Quincy, Massachusetts and fell. The fall was broken by a tree. According to the website, one neighbor said, "It is really like a miracle, I think his guardian angel was definitely there." Several other witnesses used the word 'miracle' when describing the event.

But is that a miracle? Donna Louis, author of 'Miracles of Direction, Miracles of Conquest, Miracles of Provision and Miracles of Purpose' believes it is. She knows that miracles are not just found in the Bible. Modern day miracles occur all over the world, every day.

Louis' book explores biblical miracles that took place while Jesus was here on earth. She then references with miracles that take place on a daily basis in the modern world. She separates these miracles into four categories and presents insightful example of each type, taken directly from the Bible. She knows that miracles happen every day, even today, and offers readers a message of hope and faith.

"There is a song," Louis stated, "titled 'Jesus loves the little children all the children of the world.' In the bible it says, 'And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. Mark 10:13-16'. 'Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward'. Psalm 127:3. This young boy has a purpose in life and a mission to fulfill for God, hence the miracle!"

Louis knows her subject well, as she has personally experienced three miracles. As the result of those life-altering experiences, she began an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. In her book, she attempts to expand upon and explain both the purpose and the direction of those miracles.

Donna was chosen as a winner in the 2015 and the 2016 '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' awards contest. She was recently nominated in the 2017 Top Female Author Awards Program. ‘Miracles' has also received rave reviews from readers. One review called it "amazing, uplifting and inspirational". Another stated, "I was profoundly impressed by the writing."

Donna is now making her book available to organizations to be used as a fundraising tool. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the e-books may be donated to those organizations that qualify. Churches and other charitable organizations whose mission is to uplift and inspire are welcome to contact Donna using the information below to discuss the details of the program.

More information is available at her website. ‘Miracles of Direction’ is available at online retail book outlets. More information is available at her website at http://www.miraclebook.net.

About Donna Louis:

Donna Louis is happily married to her husband of 30 years Patrick Louis and currently resides in Florida. She lives to accomplish the task that God created her for and on a daily basis to follow Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
