Join us with guests Stephanie Nasou, Michael Goodwin and Abigail Manning.
“She Rises” by Steph Nasou
These pieces are a direct reflection of going through the motions of the human condition. Learning about life and that death is a part of life. Going through hell just to find the light again. It is a compilation of healing, of life’s ruptures and repairs. Throughout the years I have taken great solace in writing and photography. I have compiled this book of both in hopes to spread light on self-love, acceptance, relationships, abuse and continuing to rise up through it all. I hope to help people who feel like they are not good enough; to see their unique light and strength through even the darkest of times.
“Vice Versa” by Michael Goodwin
Imagine if the 2020 presidential election were the mirror image of 2016, as the Biden campaign is accused of receiving aid from the People’s Republic of China. In this alternative universe, the media is mostly pro-Trump and the FBI rife with MAGA supporters. Gary Wang, a low-level Biden staffer, somehow becomes the center of the maelstrom and is pursued by the media, politicians, and the FBI. Vice Versa is a satirical take on the comedy and tragedy of current American media and politics.
“Poisoned Heart” by Abigail Manning
Princess Arabella is truly the fairest in all the land, and she knows it. With her pretty face, elaborate ball gowns, and glorious castle, she truly lives the perfect royal life. That is, until she is forced out of her home by a mysterious assassin.
With only the clothes on her back and the tiara on her head, Arabella flees from her castle in the dead of winter. As a last resort for shelter, Arabella takes up work in a laundry mill with seven other women. The once adored princess is now subjected to sleeping in piles of dirty laundry, but at least she is hidden. Well, she hopes so…
In the midst of her deadly game of hide-and-seek, she discovers that her kingdom is endangered by her absence. With the help of a dashing captain, a quirky noble, and her seven new companions, she must protect both her life and her kingdom. Will Arabella learn what true beauty is as she navigates her new life as a nameless commoner? While evil builds and secrets unfold, there may be more than her heart that’s poisoned.
