“The Escort: Walking to Eternity With My Brother” by Terry L. Mills & Antonia Mills Deals Honestly With Family Bereavement.
Walking to Eternity With My Brother gets to the heart of family conflict, compassion, and forgiveness during the final episode of a man’s life. It is also about taking care of the “business” beyond the grief.
Terry L. Mills says that no one can ever be adequately prepared to receive a phone call saying a loved one is dying a slow but inevitable death. When his call came, it was from a doctor in New York City saying that his only sibling, Elliott, had been diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer, with a prognosis of three to six months to live.
That unexpected phone call began a series of emotional responses that would become the walk to eternity with his older brother, and led to the managing of his affairs.
“In the end, my brother died sooner than expected,” He added, “The Escort is a true account of the process of engagement and interactions with family, friends, physicians, social workers, and others to help my brother prepare for his inevitable More >

Inspirational Christian Memoir, “Recovery, Healing, and Restoration Through Isaiah 54” Is Written by the Academic Edith A. Chillo.
History Professor Edith A. Chillo shares her personal story in Recovery, Healing, and Restoration Through Isaiah 54.
She says: “God begins to heal me from pain and wounds I did not know I carried, and which over three decades and across three continents continuously held me in bondage. This past emanated from a breakup with a star soccer player in one of Kenya’s national soccer clubs. He was open to polygamy to be with me. As a Christian, I was not; we broke up. By that time, I had a daughter with him.” Her daughter grew up knowing only the first name of the biological father “and that he abandoned us.” The author never spoke about him, but also unknowingly never healed from the breakup.
“Three decades later, I received a visitation from God. Through the Holy Spirit talking to me as a person right next to me, Christ recovers this past I long buried, reveals to me how wounds from the breakup, unknown to me, tossed me from one complex relationship to another. Christ More >
Food for Thought: Chef’s Memoir Tells an Inspiring Story in “Food, Sex, Wine and Cigars: A Memoir” by Lisa Stalvey.
“This is my account of being a woman in a male-dominated industry, complete with a complicated relationship with food and a man, resulting in a long self-destructive streak. I have been cooking for 38 years professionally, including an apprenticeship in 1980 with Wolfgang Puck, ultimately becoming his head chef at Spago, Sunset.”
Lisa Stalvey has quite a story to tell. At age 24, she was pretty, thin, engaged to be married, and working as a line cook at Ma Maison among Hollywood’s elite. But it all came to a screeching halt in 1980, when she severed three fingers on her right hand in an industrial Cuisinart at work. But another traumatic event happened three months prior, which was the real reason behind her anorexia. Lisa discovered this from her writing, causing her to finally mourn. “As I was being rushed to the hospital staring at three of my severed fingers floating in ice water, I couldn’t believe what just happened.”
She tells how she survived the most difficult period of her life: suffering from More >
“Transmigration” by Jesse Cougot is a book of Love Poems: Falling in Love Has Never Been So Unforgettable.
Transmigration is the second book by poet Jesse Cougot.
The photography by Mitchell Alexander in Transmigration propels the author’s poems to new levels, and shows why this is no ordinary poetry collection.
The book is essentially a love story, proving that love is a balance of trust, compromise, friction, and breaths of fresh air. Love takes wing, even as it also brings lovers back down to Earth.
The author’s first book of poetry, Rudimentary, is the extreme opposite of this book and is very dark.
Transmigration’s poetry represents the balance of bright lights being emitted from an evolved soul. Its lightness takes readers on an unforgettable spiritual journey.
“We are pleased to announce the release of this insightful poetry collection that offers a counterbalance to the author’s last work,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.

Short Stories Are a Literary ‘Homage’ From a World Traveler in “Homage” by Terence Roberts.
Terence Roberts’ debut short story collection Homage is a must-read. The author grew up during the exciting 1950/60 decades of cosmopolitan modern culture in British Guiana’s capital of Georgetown.
This collection of 10 unique stories enriches the literary genre by focusing on memory; the relationship of the writer’s moment of writing and the events communicated; the conception and misconceptions possible between persons of different ancestry, race, nationality, city, lifestyle, profession and gender; the effect of changing trends in the arts on the lifestyles of societies, cities, and generations; and the personal and specific influence of films, art, music, and literature on the diverse characters within the stories. The tales travel from Toronto, New York, Caracas, and Georgetown, to Guyana’s border regions, where bold young women and men encounter each other in sensual and intelligent experiences.
Apart from their suggestive autobiographical and fictional data, some of these startling and often hilarious stories are exercises in the possibilities of contemporary fiction. This all adds up to make Homage an exciting read in both content and style.
“This stunning literary collection presents a fascinating read and we are thrilled More >
