Read an Excerpt

The book includes the most raved about short story, "You Ever Seen A Grown Man Cry" {I wake every day to the shine of the sun and the tunes birds sing. But I can't seem to get excited about a day that I know ain't got nothing in store for me. Today someone is going to hit the lottery and tomorrow someone is going to fall in love. Anything good happening to me on any day is unheard of.} and the appetizing treat to the mind, "Sweet Potato Pie".

    Beautiful, Bold Truth!

    Raw, Real and explicitly written, Joylynn's book is sheer 'flo-etry', written with potent words creatively reading as poetry in rhymne. These 7 short stories seize the true spirit of unbrashed knowledge and potent wisdom, creatively woven into the written words. No stone was left unturned... no secrets remained... and every pain/shame is revealed. Joylynn has written this book with the grace of a peacock, carefully and skillfully portraying the stories of human life. It's a mixed human gumbo evolving their mixture of emotions: violence, turmoil, desparation, humiliation, disappointments, betrayal, love, obsessions, sacrifices, frustrations, failures, tragedies, pain and pride. The book exemplifies the 'daily struggles' encountered by ordinary folk who travel along the bumpy road of life. As I read this book, I felt as though I was intruding on the privacy of the characters as they dodged through their inflictions and conflicts. The stories contained predicaments that was heart crushing and pained as acid on the nerves. Two of my favorites (if I had to choose) were 'Eyes Like Mine' & 'Ever Seen A Grown Man Cry'. This book is immeasurable on the exposure of emotions and a zealous work from the author/artist. Goodpeoples ARC BOOK CLUB Inc. Star Rating:*****5 (...and then some!)
