‘Rise of the Phoenix’ poetry CD Coming Soon!

Full Book Cover Rise of the Pho copy

This is the cover design for the Book of Lyrics to my latest CD ‘Rise of the Phoenix’ (I designed it my Self!), what do you think?  The CD is due out at the end of this month; I just sent off for a draft copy of the Book of Lyrics to see how it looks in print – can’t wait!!! You can listen to some of the poems on my Soundcloud:

Some of these poems were never going to be released (like ‘BEWARE THE VAMPIRE!’) because I’m now ‘in the light’, but after listening to them again, they all have a message in them!

I’m still working on the final poem: ‘Black…Scorpio…Woman!’

It’s the hardest poem I’ve ever had to write! I started doing the research for it 3 years ago; it’s all based on Astrology, Numerology and Cosmology!  By the time I get the print version of the book (I left a space where the poem should go), I’m aiming to have the poem finished.  Then all I have to do is record it, so I’m well on track to having the CD out by the end of this month!

You can pre-order your signed copy of the CD with its Book of Lyrics for only £9.99 from

Stay blissed!

February Events I’m Taking Part In!

First of all, I’d just like to say a big “Thanks!” to those of you who downloaded, read and left your Customer Reviews on Amazon for Year One of my Self-help novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’.   Actually, I can count on one hand how many of the 409 who downloaded last weekend have left reviews!  However I am still hopeful as I know that some of you would have downloaded it to read at a later date, but please remember to go back and leave your comments before the next free download!

If you missed it, you can still read Year One FREE on Scribd here:

If you like what you’ve read so far, you don’t have to wait to find out what happens in the next 10 Years of Suzanne’s quest for ‘the Truth’, order the paperback!  It’s only £9.99 (+ £3.99 p&p) from Lulu:

Starting this week, I will be answering any questions you may have relating to each ‘Year’ on my Facebook Page so if you haven’t already ‘LIKED’ it, please do so now:  This week we’re discussing Year One: the ‘Truth’ – post any questions relating to the topics raised in each chapter and I’ll answer them there!

Book Launch Review

It may be a week later, but since pushing my Self to complete my novel in two years (instead of three) and then organising the Book Launch, I really needed to switch off for a week!  So I’m just getting around to writing a review:

Naming Ceremony

I was glad I decided to postpone my (re)Naming Ceremony as most people arrived for the Book Launch!  I hadn’t anticipated the amount of work that was involved in organising the Book Launch and the Naming Ceremony, and I wasn’t able to give the Naming Ceremony the attention it deserved, so I’ve postponed it until June 2013.  In my mind, I see it on the scale of a wedding, so I’ll be doing plenty of work between now and then to promote the importance of us (descendants of the enslaved) changing our names back to an African name.

Book Launch

Although the venue was full, I noticed that a lot of my personal friends didn’t attend. I now put this down to me not inviting them personally, as I only sent out a generic email. In future, I know to invite personal friends personally!

Fellow poet Errol McGlashan (who also helped me edit the book) done a short drama sketch based on the church scene he co-wrote in Year One of the novel, where the Pastor is admonishing the young women in the church for wearing ‘unholy undergarments’ to God’s holy house!  We will definitely be developing this sketch for future events!


After, I introduced the audience to my inner child by performing ‘My Artist Child’ Parts One and Two, then read an extract from Year Two which lead straight into my poem ‘The Preparation’ which features in that extract, alongside acoustic guitarist Theo Calliste and El Crisis.

Theo and El Crisis

After a Q & A session, I signed books during the break and all 25 were gone in no time!

Cezanne signing4

I had tried to encourage people to buy their books online and bring it with them to the launch to receive a FREE ‘Seeds of Love’ CD but it didn’t quite work out that way!

I happily took another 14 orders though! (My eldest son Zaviere helped)


I have fellow author Kwame McPherson  to thank for taking me to the Millionaire Authors Bootcamp in June, which spurred me on to get my novel finished!  I started publishing it on Amazon Kindle first, then when the whole book was completed I Self-published the paperback version with  Kwame also took me to Raymond Allen’s Authors Bootcamp this weekend (7-9th Dec) where I learnt how to BRAND my Self – I am now the AUTHORity on how to be HAPPILY Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual! (If you’re not happily single, you won’t be happily married/in a relationship either!)


It was also good to see fellow author Von Mozar (second from right) after all this time!  Debrose (Natural November, far right) also came to get her complimentary book and CD for helping promote the book to her networks. (she also bought one of the ‘Lover’s Attraction’ spiritual oils mentioned in my novel that I sell)


After talking about the faculty of the Creative Imagination, I read some more extracts from the novel and performed another two poems that feature in the story, and are on its complimentary CD ‘Seeds of Love’‘Love Attraction’, and ‘R U The One?’

El Crisis (host) performed two of his spiritually moving poem/chanting


I thanked my three sons Zaviere, Sanchez and Azagba for putting up with me for the last three years while I pursue my passions – I think they were proud of me though!

We had a great time, and I received some really good feedback, here’s one of them:

“What a fantastic Event, the launch of Cezanne Poetess’s New Book
‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual. wonderfull energy, beautifull people. I always think of what i am missing when i attend these events. There is an energy that you dont feel in your everyday existance. 9-5 really kill the creative spirit, too busy chasing paper no time to stop and feel. Anyway thanks Cezanne for the previledge to attend your event. Congratualtions” (taken off my page on FB)
