Author Daivd Kayles Willimas

Author Bio –   David Kayles Williams is a 26 year old male and a native from Queens, New York. He initially got his start in writing by blogging. It was a way for him to express his feelings without feeling pressured by anyone. He currently is in school for Public Relations and marketing at ashford university. As he started blogging, a friend of his recommended that he write a book about how he views and observes things in the world. Initially he was reluctant about it because he wasn’t sure how people would react to his new found idea. Surprisingly, his blogs did very well and received many views. People were extremely supportive of his idea to write a book and the more he thought about it, the more he felt he should write one. He is still very much shocked by the level of support he has received. He has told people countless times that he expected a negative response. His reason for writing a book is to inspire others and show them that they can be anything they want, as long as they are willing to put the work in. In his spare time, He works with individuals who have disabilities. In the past, he was an intern at the National Broadcasting Channel  (NBC), where he handled important packages and mail for various clients. He has said that that was one of his proudest moments since there were only a  handful of people that worked there. His goal once he becomes successful as an author is to donate money to charity in honor of his grandmother.

Is there nothing this author can write that is wrong? No i dont think so. I have enjoyed all i have read so far and this was not a let down by a long shot. I love this kind of book. It gives you hope that love can cross all borders of time. No matter the plane: death, confusion, doubt, love still lingers. He thought she was gone, everyone thought she was was gone, after all she drowned. 2 went out to sea and only 1 returned. But what was it he was feeling as of late, and who was this mystery woman that washed up on the beach with no memory that reminded him of his long lost beloved? Was he simply making more of simple coincidences, in his agony and pain of missing her, or was there truly more to it? Well you'll have to read the book to find out the answer. But know that it is a book you will NOT want to put down once you begin reading...

As a mother, daughter, sister, businesswoman and now wife, I have held many roles. I have never really been comfortable in the Lead position though. Rather I've preferred to stay a few rows back and follow. But, what God has for you will continue to burn in you until you alllow it to be birthed, or you return to your Father with his gifts unused.
This book confirmed for me many things I was taught and heard along my way of becoming comfortable in front of the group. Leaders dont make followers, they make other leaders, is one thing i was always taught. The teachings in this book helped me to understand my own gifts. Lead, as Christ leads us.
It took me a while to get around to reading this book, but life has a way of getting in the way of what you are meant to do. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to be a Leader, and lead with Christian principals as their guideline.

For the Love of the Hustle, exposes in a very real way the reality of what too many youths growing up and ending up on the streets have to deal with on a regular basis. A harsh reality that some have been lucky enough to avoid. The streets can be hard for a young child, esp a young girl, and this book exposes that harshness, the sexual encounters and lengths others go to to try and take advantage of the situation. It in the midst of all that is going on is a great read and you'll get a real look at what and how the lead character gets through all they endure. You'll feel for them, cry with them and wish you could take them into your arms, some you'll want to hunt down, the work of a great writer. Well done Shautna'e, I cant wait to read part 2.

INTERVIEW: 

What made you start a writing career? For most authors', they might say that, for them, it began with a love for reading books. For me, it is more the creative aspect of writing.

Sweet Read of the WEEK:  I WIN YOU LOSE by Rocky Rose and L. Marie,
If you can handle real, in depth, graphic stories about domestic violence, then you will be able to read this novel. It is several short stories that all deal with the reality of Domestic Violence an all its ugliness.
The stories while graphic in nature, tell the stories exactly as they happen. Violence in any form isn't pretty and there is no way to really sugar coat it and tell the story in a believable way.
Each story in I WIN, YOU LOSE, ends with each abused character becoming victorious and getting their lives together. The only thing i can say i wish was done differently, was I wish the authors had spent more time on the I WIN part of the stories. There was lots about how they were abused and i wish they had equally shared how the characters were able to get themselves out of those situations and change their lives for the better.
But, this is still a novel of short stories worth your time and support.

I can't wait to read the next in this series.

Check out the SweetReadoftheWeek ....Ju Ephraime, A Wonderful Piece of Dark Mahogany
"This novella had many great points to it. I was short and engaging... I read it in one day. There was a slight erotic undertone to it, yet it stayed welled written within the story plot. I thought Edwin would make a return, it would have been a great plot twist but he didn't. Having said that, the story progressed nicely and wrapped up in a happy ending. Mel and Craig made for a nice couple with a few realistic relationship problems, though they had an intense sexual attraction to one another from the beginning. Craig seemed genuinely concerned for Mel and though his past wouldn't let him go and threatened, with some assistance to steal away his joy, he managed to fight for his love.

My main complaint if i had to make one would be that there was lots of narrative, I wish there was more dialogue. There were a lot of parts were i found myself reading what happened by the narrator telling me what took place and I wished the author had let me experience it through the characters dialogue instead of simply telling me what happened, especially when it came to the epilogue.

Yet, i don't think the story fell short by any means and i still enjoyed it."
