Join us TODAY (Sun 1st Dec) for the Launch of my latest Self-help book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’! Did you get your FREE ticket? Come to The Mella Center, 73 Oxford Street in the heart of the West End between 4-8pm where we will be discussing the topics raised in the book!
Do you think the effects of slavery and Colonialism are still affecting our relationships today? Are the subliminal messages in films and the media causing the Black Man and Woman to choose ‘other’ than each other? How can we heal ourselves and best prepare to meet our match? Come and join in the discussion based on the book!
If you missed the free download of the e-book last weekend, you can still download it from Amazon for only £1.92! LOOK INSIDE to Preview it then ‘Buy with 1-Click’!
(If you are outside the UK, download the e-book from www.amazon.com)
Here’s some feedback I’ve received so far:
“Sis the book is interesting; I like/love de part about bad mining ur partner to ur sistrens; that’s so not healthy for u or de progression of ur relationship!! Mmmm albeit, I know I’m guilty of such a ting!!! I liked de table you put in ur book 3 months 6 months STAGES!!! But I must share I laughed as ideally that would make more sense than not!? But then reality is something else!! As for meeting someone (A BROTHER) whose read ur book at ur Book Launch I definitely LOL!!! Stay blessed Cezanne” ~ Ashanti (by text)
Greetings Poetess, I just want to tell you that I am truly grateful for the opportunity to download your new book. It is a blessing in my life, and I am really enjoying reading it. I too am on a journey of SELF discovery and development, and it could not have come at a better time. The book is confirming things I already knew, and revealing hidden truths I had forgotten, or had simply chosen to ignore about myself. I am 50 years old, and I have just recently discovered my worth, and embraced the fact that I am worthy because of the awesome possibilities for greatness that lie within me. I am a writer and a poet, but I had not written anything until last year after I met a male friend (who had his own agenda and I am no longer with). I readily identify with much of what you have written in your books, and poems. Thank you for being who you WILL be, and sharing your gift with us. I hope one day to come to London and come to one of your events. Until then, peace and blessings” ~ Marian (via FB)

FUNDRAISING FOR WRITER’S RETREAT
I will be doing a Raffle to give away some framed prints of my artwork, and an Auction to sell off three of my original paintings to raise funds for my 3-Month Writer’s Retreat to Ghana, where I’ll be doing research for the sequel to ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’
If you have read ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ you will know that the ROOT CAUSE of our relationship issues are buried in our PAST. My aim is to discover how our relationships were BEFORE slavery and Colonialism, so that we can begin to rebuild our families, relationships and community. No doubt this will be a deeply spiritual experience for me, and I’m sure it will come out in my writing!
The three paintings I will be auctioning are: ‘Self Love’ (used to illustrate the cover design of my CD ‘Seeds of Love’ and its Book of Lyrics), ‘Black Orchid’ (used to illustrate Year Six of ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!) and ‘Love Bump’ (used to illustrate the front cover of ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’) For full details go here – paintings will go to the highest bidder! Payment can be made straight away using the Paypal ‘donation’ button on my website, so you can take home one of my originals!
Alternatively, you can make a Donation to my Pot of Dreams, which accepts £2 coins, £1 coins and paper money! I’m aiming to raise at least £3,000 as I will be travelling around Ghana, seeking ‘that which we have forgotten’.
If you are unable to attend the Launch but would like to make a Donation to my 3 Month Writer’s Retreat, please do so at: http://www.singlespiritualandsexual.com/Book_Signing_Events.html – I am fertile soil, all who plant a seed in my life WILL receive a bountiful harvest!
See you on Sunday!
