ONE BLOOD. THREE GENERATIONS OF WOMEN, LEGACY, AND SURVIVAL. Join New York Times bestselling author Denene Millner as she explores the lives of three generations of women tied together by love, hope, dreams, ambition...and family secrets in this epic novel. Meet Grace: raised by her beloved grandmother in tension-filled, post-segregation Virginia, Grace is barely a teenager when she loses her grandmother. Shellshocked, she is shipped up North to live with her formidably ambitious Aunt Hattie. Feeling like a fish out of water in the high society world filled with fancy teas and coveted debutante balls, Grace’s only place of comfort is with the smart, handsome son of one of the society’s grand dames. Meet Delores: intelligent and fierce, Delores a.k.a. Lolo has never had it easy. Once she makes it north, she puts aside her dream of being a model to do what she has to do to survive as a woman with little money and no mooring: get married and have a family of her own. When secrets start to spill out and she and her family slowly begin to unravel, Lolo is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her dream intact. Meet Rae: when Lolo’s headstrong daughter, Rae discovers that she is adopted, it’s just one secret among others that her family is keeping. When Rae finds out that she’s about to become a mother herself, she knows that there is an important reckoning that must be faced about herself and her two mothers.

The Idea behind Fillmyeyes with Poetry is to allow our listeners a chance to call in and chat with us a while or read a write or two or even just tell us a joke... light hearted, fun opportunity to enjoy one another...It's about strengthening our poetic community...Making Friends one poem at a time... Late Night... Another late night and my thoughts wander... drawing from my memories, strong emotions, needing to be expressed. My pen almost burning in my hand as I hold it firmly, trying to begin. My thoughts jumbled together, the only common thread is the emotion. Suddenly, my pen glides on paper, sentences appear, first one then another. Verse after verse, each yearning to be heard and understood. Seeking refuge in the quiet of the late night. These confessions calm my soul. Jean The Curtain Opens ... The Stage is lit...C'mon ... Step Up... Grab Up The Mic and Say Something!!

The topic of gun violence in the United States is a highly-charged and emotional issue. As part of an effort to discuss the issue, an eclectic group of award-winning authors come together to craft American Roulette, a novel that brings eight people to a mall food court, on a day they think will be like any other. The collaborative efforts of these writers takes a different tack to examine the tension, dread and action of a novel with the real-life question for all readers: could this happen to me or someone I love?
Two Sunbury Press authors involved in the project join Sunbury Press founder and publisher Lawrence Knorr on this podcast to talk about the subject of gun violence, what brought them all together, and what they hope to accomplish with a book that garnered rave reviews from the outset. Sherry Knowlton is no stranger to the BookSpeak Network, as host of the Milford House mystery podcast, and the author of several mystery works, including the Alexa Williams series. Pat LaMarche is an author, political activist, historian and homeless shelter director. They are joined by Matthew Best, Robert Bradshaw, Andy Carey, James Dodds, Cheryl Dunn Bychek, Phyllis Orenyo, J.M. West and Cheryl Woodruff Brooks.
All proceeds from this book will go to gun violence prevention, by way of the non-profit Charles Bruce Foundation.

Indianapolis, IN – Eve Carson is the author of the book Simple, Safe & Secret: The 1981 Murder of Joan L. Webster. Eve seeks to keep alive the memory of her sister-in-law, Joan Webster, a Harvard Student, who perished in November of 1981, under very suspicious circumstances. Despite being a cold case and meeting resistance at every turn, Eve continues to seek justice for Joan.
“I began researching this case back in 2006, because the former prosecutor announced that he was writing a book about this case.” mentions Eve. “Having understood the case from the beginning, I understood that what he wrote was similar to the story that was promoted through the media. However, it did not match up with documents that I recovered.”
“The case is forty-two years old, and no one has been tried or charged with the crime,” explains Eve. “The state of Massachusetts alleged that Leonard Paradiso picked up Joan at Logan Airport, took her to a boat, murdered her, and then dumped her in Boston Harbor. Her body was missing until 1990, when her remains were discovered in a wooded area in Hamilton, Massachusetts – and NOT in Boston Harbor.”
Eve’s passion for this case manifested itself into a book that she authored – Simple, Safe & Secret: The 1981 Murder of Joan L. Webster. This book offers a more detailed account of the events, evidence, and people surrounding Joan Webster. She has dedicated the book in memory of Joan.
