Nah'Sun's Year in Review

What’s woody, grasshoppers?

I apologize for not posting anything new recently. A brotha was hella busy wrapping up Thick 2. My 2nd novel is hitting the press just in time for its January 21st release date

You can pre-order your copy of Thick 2 for ONLY $9.99 @

Aight, let’s get it poppin’


I went back home for a month to celebrate my born day and relax for a moment. Then again, I really didn’t relax considering I spent most of my time finishing up on Thick 2. There’s nothing like deep dish pizza from Giordano’s. Speaking of Chicago, it’s a shame that my beloved hometown reached the 500th murder mark for 2012. Let’s get it together, people.

My favorite vacation spot. The first time I went to South Beach was during Memorial Day Weekend for Black Beach Weekend aka Freaknik. I decided to go when the streets were calmer and peaceful the next go ‘round…LOL


What happens on the party bus, stays on the party bus

My first time poppin’ bottles at a club. Couples lounge in Brooklyn to be exact. Poppin' bottles isn't my style. All I need is one glass of get right and I’m good. I celebrated the completion of Thick 2 with Breuklyn and the good folks at Foundation International Sound.

My second time partying in Connecticut was fun. I didn’t participate in the lap dancing contest. Not my thing. Nevertheless, I did enjoy dancing and meeting people that night with the Bad Big Girls Club

I partied a couple times with Babs Social Club. They throw parties that cater to plus size women and the men who love them. The co-founder Gayle aka Ms Power Bosom (shown here) suggested I should throw a book signing with them. That’s whassup. Now we gotta come up with a date and rock & roll

Team Gator is another organization that offered me to throw a signing with their group. Much love…BUYAKA BUYAKA…their mansion and day parties were off the chain. Now we’ll see how wild things are gonna get in ‘13

The interview was a lil bit unorganized. I still did my thing, though. The hustler in me STILL got some sales and my point across in the TNT radio interview at In the Mixx Studios in Yonkers, NY

It’s a shame that the founder of Curves decided to not throw parties anymore. Curves were building their audience, and hey, I appreciate an intimate size crowd. DJ Larry Love (shown here) got tired of throwing parties and stepped out the ring. Pour out a lil liquor for the Curves organization and their supporters

What happens in Jamaica, stays in Jamaica

Aaaaaah yes. My first appearance on a reality show. It was fun. Check out the video below and skip to the 15-minute mark of the show to see me at work. Funny shit, cuz.

Aight, ya'll...see you in '13...(No Bad Luck)

Book Industry Fuckery

What's woody, kinfolk???

Last June my publicist had sent this lady an email about me possibly appearing on her blog talk radio show...a fellow author who does business with this lady had referred us to her

So we hit up the lady on the email, and she suggested we ship her a copy of Thick When the Chances are Slim...and we did...we got no answer...we hit her up weeks later, and come to find out the address she'd given us was invalid

Shorty then gave us a new shipping address...told her to hit us up when she got the book...and to her credit, she did

60 days was the waiting period until she'd get back to us

Time flew like crack...June ended...July cruised...August sped on...September rocketed into October...and now we're in November

STILL no answer

And you know what...I actually wasn't too bothered about her not getting back to us after 60 days until I checked out a Facebook status giving this lady praises about the work she'd done in the industry

So I had to speak up

Say "hello" to a prime EXAMPLE of the fuckery I sometimes go through in the book game by clicking the link below

Then you'll wonder why I go ape shit about industry nonsense

I don't give a fuck anymore...I'm finna put any and everyone on blast when they continue to do dumb shit after a private understanding is violated...skrait up

Team Gator All-Black Party RECAP!!!

What’s woody, kinfolk?


I broke my damn cane on the way to the club…what a way to kick off my night…I haven’t hit the clubs since Labor Day weekend to finish up on Thick 2…my night already faced a rocky start

Cheapness doesn’t pay off…I bought that cane during my travels for 40 bucks…should’ve bought the joint for 60…that cane was more stable with a loop handle

They lucky my cane broke…straight up...I was gonna floss my ass off with it…LOL

Team Gator Co-CEO Peoples celebrated his born day @ Club Pranna in downtown Manhattan last Friday…the PACKED jumpoff was an all-black affair…real grown and sexy…you know I had to switch it up a bit by throwing the candy red in the mix

The lovely Shy and Nah'Sun the Great

One love to Shy for coppin’ her copy of Thick When the Chances are Slim at the club…she stopped me squeezing through the crowded ass dance floor that felt like I stood in a can of sardines and asked, “Are you Nah’Sun?”

I was flattered about her steppin’ to me considering we never met

We only know each other through Facebook

Shy is sexy as hell…THICK, too… Shy is what I call “slim-thick”...slim at the legs and waist with a bubble in the back that pokes out like bumpers

But on the real…I stay away from holla’rin’ @ supporters…mixing business and pleasure is like rum and milk

The messed up part is that I left my books in one of those free magazine bins on the street…anyone could’ve opened the bin and took a copy, but I seriously doubted that anyone in the thick of Manhattan would’ve opened the magazine bin to take a book

I asked the bouncer if I can go out the club to get my books and run back in to give Shy a copy of Thick for her to purchase

Homie said, “You gotta gimme a tip.”

And you know what, I wasn’t mad at his hustle…I would’ve done the same thing

…so I gave dude 5 bucks

Then the bartenders wanted a 2 dollar tip for using the pen they gave me to autograph the copy

…I didn’t give ‘em shit

Kool DJ Red Alert and yours truly

Speaking of meeting people…

I wanna give a shout out to all the ladies at the club tellin’ me, “I remember you on the trip to Atlantic City.”

Team Gator threw a day party @ 40/40 Club in Atlantic City last August…you know I did my thing…the shorties remembered my steez when I rocked the red fedora back then as well

As you can see, I’m a celebrity…I’m just not famous

*pimp giggle*

Real men rock red Stacy Adams socks

My night wrapped up on a positive note…I hooked up with a few familiar heads and made new connects…I linked up with this brotha and his homeboy outside Pranna before walking in…they knew the bouncers

Make a short story shorter, we skipped the line because of that connect

The funny part of the whole night happened at the end…an argument popped off between a guy and his homeboy’s girl…make another short story shorter, ol’ girl felt that dude violated at an all-white party awhile ago…dude copped pleas and apologized to his homie and his girl

A misunderstanding that could've been squashed in a matter of minutes lasted for 15 minutes…

…and I got most of it on my camera phone


I give the Team Gator all-black jumpoff an A minus

The minus comes from the bartender fuckin’ up my Long Island Iced Tea…homie made it too bitter…you NEVER mess with a Black man’s drink and expect to get away with it

I had fun overall…shout out to DJ Mike did his thing by making me forget why I stopped clubbin’ for a minute…a lot of DJs nowadays act too pussy to play different shit by going the safe routeMike Neeze mixed it up by playing new joints along with the forgotten oldies but goodies

I can’t wait until the March 72-hours of no sleep ski-trip Team Gator is hosting…not only I’m finna party my ass off, but also sell copies of both Thick books since they let me hold down a table

Nuff respect

Aight ya’ll…I’m out

Phil Jackson is Jesus

Kobe politickin with coach Phil Jackson
What’s woody, kinfolk?

Well oh well…the good ol Los Angeles Lakers done pushed the panic button by hiring Mike D'Antoni to run the ship after firing Mike Brown

I’m so glad the Lakers signed D’Antoni instead of suckin’ Phil Jackson’s dick six ways to Sunday…they acted like he's the only coach that’s capable of winning…snatching 11 championships is an amazing feat, but shit, other coaches are capable of winning the ‘ship as well

Quick comments before I jet outta here…

I never thought Mike Brown was good enough to coach the Lakers in the first place…he only won games with Cleveland because of LeBron,…he’s too one dimensional as a defensive minded coach

Coach Mike Brown
On the flip side, he didn’t have enough time to mesh the team together from the lockout shortened season to now…who uses his Princeton style offense anyway...LOL...but hey, LA is neck to neck with the Boston Celtics as the greatest brand in the NBA…you either win NOW or go home

Some circles might use the race card to point out the Lakers itchy triggers to fire Brown, but the truth is that Kobe has 3 good years left, Steve Nash is old, and Dwight Howard is a free agent after this year

They panicked and needed to do SOMETHING to salvage the season after losing the first 4 games…shit, Coach Brown is gettin' 14 million without having to coach for the Lakers anyway…if that’s racism, then I don’t wanna be Pro-Black…ha ha!...real talk

Mike Brown reminds me of Mr. Ed…always cheesin' and shit even when he’s not…but that’s neither here or there

I think D’Antoni is a good fit for the Lakers…Kobe reportedly idolizes D’Antoni from his playing days in Italy, and Nash is a run-and-gun type of player that’s familiar with D’Antoni’s offense…it’s perfect for pick-and-roll schemes whether it’s Nash/Pau Gasol or Nash/Dwight Howard

The Zen Master’s infamous Triangle Offense wouldn’t fit this roster…(the Zen Master is Phil’s nickname for you non-sports heads)…the system worked well in Chicago and LA because it freed up the point guards that were spot up shooters (BJ Armstrong, John Paxson, Steve Kerr, Derek Fisher) as well as dumping the ball to their front court whether it was Scottie Pippen, Shaq, Robert Horry, Horace Grant, Bill Cartwright or Luc Longley

Scottie Pippen soaring over the wack ass Indiana Pacers
The Triangle isn’t for the run-and-gun type of point guard like Nash…it’s a slower paced style of offense that focuses on movement and passing until someone gets open…the Triangle would’ve benefitted Gasol and Howard while canceling out Nash’s ability to run the floor like he’d done in Phoenix

Gary Payton clashed with Jackson after signing with the Lakers from Seattle in '03 because GP is not the spot up shooter type of point guard…he needs the ball in his hands to direct the offense…the Triangle takes away selfish basketball until Kobe decides to take over the game like number 23 had done before him…LOL

A system won’t run like an oily wheel without the players to complement that style

Miami, OKC and San Antonio were the best teams last season because they played the game in a faster place…Jim Buss, Lakers owner, dreams of re-living the Showtime Laker era of the 80s…what better way to flip dreams into reality by hiring a coach whose style mirrors the days of Magic, Kareem, and Worthy

So Laker fans…don’t get your panties in a bunch…D’Antoni is a better coach for this roster than Jackson…I don’t think PJ wanted to coach anyway…he just wanted more power within the organization according to the Laker side of the argument

And with that said, D’antoni BETTER win with this squad or forever find his name in the land of “he can’t win as a coach” where it’s hard for anyone to come back from

Aight ya’ll…I’m out

She Wasn't Sayin' That Last Night

Up early this morning thinking...

Every man needs rules and discipline to keep order in his life

I make GRIND RULES for myself...if I see a couple walking when I'm promoting or selling books, I'll give bookmarks or make a sale pitch to the GUY, even though the woman is most likely to buy the book or thoroughly check out the bookmark

No jealousy + No insecurity = No problems

Tyler Perry Movies are the Devil

What’s woody, grasshoppers???

Today marks the day when millions of Americans are hitting the polls to cast their vote for either President Obama or Mitt Romney

The only thoughts I have is that the public should exercise their right to vote, but SHOULD NOT place all responsibilities on the shoulders of the President present and future...they ain't mommy and daddy

The real change comes from the face you see when you look in the mirror everyday whether ugly or beautiful

Now, look

I’m not gonna trash Tyler Perry…in all fairness, I’ve never seen any of his movies or stage plays to come up with a valid opinion…I don’t think his movies are my cup of henny

I may be wrong, but hey, I’m not in the mood to consistently watch a man play the role of a woman…Madea movies remind me of those old minstrel shows that got mad love in the chit’lin circuit back in the day…that’s why I struggle with popping in a Madea DVD or any of his other joints that have nothing to do with gangster granny

Now that I think about it, 98 percent of the movies that are out nowadays don’t grab my attention…so it's not just TP movies...I’m more of a documentary kinda guy

Who knows, I might have a change of heart one day...a lady friend is begging me to watch a Madea joint with her to show me the "inspiration" and "messages" in his movies

In defense of Tyler Perry, I’m using this time to holla at the complainers…you know, the people who claim they hate reality shows, but watch it anyway, or the type who shit on Tyler Perry movies without supporting anything else

Yes, those types of people

Speaking of reality shows…

I’m not knocking anybody who watches them, and I don’t think people who enjoy them as well as TP movies are less intelligent

Heck, I enjoy gangster flicks like Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, New Jack City, Menace II Society, blahzay blahzay

I just think it’s funny that the same people looking down on reality shows are DEDICATED to watching every episode to the point of giving play-by-play analysis on their Facebook timelines on some Madden shit (the main reason why I know about the content of shows like Love and Hip-Hop)

It’s like talking shit about porn stars but masturbating to their videos

They say reality shows are guilty pleasures...but guilty pleasures are taken by small dosages…otherwise, it’s not a guilty pleasure anymore

Back to the subject…

There’s room for Tyler Perry movies…he found his market and he's rightfully capitalizing off it...a good stage play is recession proof…stage plays racked up a grip of money during the Great Depression of the 1930s

If you’re not the type to watch a Tyler Perry movie, support joints like The Great Debaters or historical documentaries like Hidden Colors instead of complaining


Don’t be like that person who says “music today sucks” but don’t take the time to support your favorite artists by downloading their music for free

Just like the polls, a dollar is a vote…remember that

I’m out

Black and Ugly


What woody, folks???

I thought about posting something about Tyler Perry, but I’ll blog about him either tomorrow or Monday

For now, I copied and pasted a short, but deep observation between Black men and Black women in America from a Facebook buddy of mine...hit me up on Facebook @

Read EVERYTHING because this shit hits home...once again, I didn't write this joint, but I thought it was "deep"

Black Men & Black Women:

Early Human Life

Men had more than one wife and carried order, woman obeyed and never challenged authority.


Slavery Era

Men were forced into oppression and even under a hawk's eye showed power that even the opposition couldn't deny nor understand, so the Black man was made subject as an example of what that power can do when challenged by an upper hand. It placed fear into the minds of the woman and the soul of the unborn fetuses

Mid-Slavery Era

Harriet Tubman, a GREAT WOMAN who followed the failed but triumphant attempt of a great Man known as Nat Turner. She understood that her strengths can be accommodated by that example of a Strong she led, not astray!

Late 1800s-Early 1950s

Black Families were now together holding up, making a strategy together surviving as a unit. The mother played her part and the Father (though black balled then) still carried the torch. No sassing, no disruptions, ORDER!

Mid 1950s-Mid 60s

Brothers standing together

Sisters supporting a movement understanding that the poison that condemns the Brothers also takes affect on them…the back bone is in use now. (Still Order)

Late 1960s-1973

Radicals making a choice to be heard, and now bringing the Women into the forefront …giving them a voice, as that voice is as powerful as the hands of a giant and is as sharp as a razor blade. She was the support and the other half keeping it bonded…he was the mind, she was the body, and together they were Soul. (Order)

Drug and High Poverty climax era (mid 70s-early 90s)

This was the re-up of the Willie Lynch Theory, his theory was to eliminate the power (unity) of the Black nation by destroying the man and rebuilding the Female.

Reverse the roles of the household by taking what little they have and only allowing it back by sacrificing the father, thus how project life and welfare really took like fish to water. In that era there were 8 times the amount of fatherless children and non-wedded black women in America. Drugs took the place of their sanity and what grew from that was a new species of uncontrolled mishaps we all know as criminals now....

…Syrup and Crack Babies

This was where they figure…destroy them from the inside out. Turn the women against the men, the child against the mom, and the elder is irrelevant now which equals out to the amount of liquor stores, churches, and casket homes being built in our community, not to mention the amount of new White police no older than your son giving order to you now. Is this not sickening to you? (No Order by nature)

Modern Day Era

Women have been so used to the hand outs given to them as a gift and a curse, bottom line before I continue…

Black Women and Asian Men are the leading faces in the lonely yet successful category. First they take the trust and faith you had in your Kings in exchange for chicken scratch that you owned all along. They then materialize you with false and temporary happiness only to put you in a box away from you true self and being.

They fucked your minds up so badly that you either go in search of comfort from another woman or they mentally pump testosterone in you until you believe you're Men so much until you become a laughing stock behind closed doors.

They Destroyed the Man, only to entrap the Woman and control the Child.

This is still slavery!

Promote yourselves righteously, Queens…and that of the ignorance coming from a lost brother will change the flick of his tongues from stupidity to wisdom. Just think about it, they love it when we as brothers downgrade you, (every white man wants a black woman as his fantasy anyway) they love it when we act ignorant and expose each other (makes for great television)…

…but when we uplift each other and stand together, it’s looked at as Fiction (they categorized the Cosby's fictional family life in TV Guide in the 80s…look it up)…the realistic yet stereotypical Good Times sitcom was looked at as genius!! This is puzzling, and even in that James was under pressure, but he had order…when he finally got his just do to get his family out the gutter THEY KILLED HIM OFF THE SHOW!!

This separation was planned, and now with this stupid ass fashion of today, we are surely doomed, ladies and gentlemen. They separate us through education, fashion, employment and even now in some parts DEMOGRAPHIC!

They have it now to where if a brother even speaks to a sister she may get the nerve to not acknowledge it, but if it’s her turn speaking to him it’s a smile and nod. This is proof that the system of separation has formed and accomplished itself by using the one true thing that’s sacred to all men as a culprit…

The Infamous Bus Driver Uppercut

What's woody, grasshoppers???

I know everybody and their mamas peeped the killer uppercut from the fist of Zeus straight outta C-Town...shouts out to Bone Thugs...ha ha!

Bone Thugs are famous rappers from Cleveland for the Hip-Hop challenged folk out 'chea

You know what...

I thought about playing devil's advocate, but since Shidea Lane (she put herself on blast) displayed a lack of responsibility on a couple of Facebook posts, I said "fuck it" and rolled with the punches

You see...

I don't condone servin the honey dips an Ike Turner special...unless my life is in danger, I'll shake the shit outta a broad if she comes out swingin'...especially when I know she can get her ass lit up by yours truly

The problem is that scandalous broads like the one in the clip always think it's okay to do shit like this; disrespectin' men and hittin' them 'cuz they know a man can't hit back or shouldn't ever hit a woman

As a woman, you can't pop off on some gangster shit like another man would, and then wanna fall back on the fact that you're a female when your ass get lit up

Nevermind spittin' on a man like this young lady of the highest forms of disrespect

I'm not gon' lie...that Jim Crow uppercut was casket clean

Axel from Streets of Rage don't have shit on him (shouts out to all my video game heads)

I don't think he should've gotten fired...Suspended? Yes


The girl hit him FIRST, not only that, but WHILE he was driving; endangering the other passengers

Young folks nowadays don't have respect for themselves and others...she got what she deserved...point blank

As a 25 year old, she's old enough to know when to get off the bus or walk away!

It's a bully move on the passenger's part because they know the driver can't defend him or herself without reprecussions from the job

Bus drivers go thru hell, kid

I remember waiting for the N6 in Hempstead, Long Island, and this lady started hitting her crutches on the bus driver because he wouldn't open the back door once they got to the terminal (which isn't allowed)

In front of her daughters!

As far as the chick in the vid, clearly she was in the wrong and showed her ass

It's purely self-defense. If she can't defend herself against someone bigger and/or stronger than her, then she needs to shut up with the ignorance and be more respectful

She wanted to be a man and got treated like one...dude knocked the femininity back in her...she's one of those types that'll say "I fight like a nigga, and I'll fight a nigga"

That's what happens.

A bystanders screamed "she's a female" after the uppercut, but why didn't they asses tell ol girl to calm down before the throw down?

Oh, I forgot, they were busy laughing and filming the rachet...LOL

People said the driver should've called the cops

She was too wild to be was gonna turn physical regardless

She should've taken a seat instead of trying to act hoodrat with it after not paying her fare


Aight ya'll...I'm out

Be safe out on deez skreets


Nah'Sun the Great


The media are some slick mofos by cuttin' the clip and starting it just before the uppercut to paint the picture of a mad bus driver

Speed Dating with Curvy Girls

I caught the short end of the stick...

...yep, they caught The Great One slippin'

Date Curves held a speed dating event this past Summer for the taping of the Curvy Girls reality show now airing on the NuVo TV and Hulu websites...the women outnumbered the men (as normal) at the event, and 3 of the 4 stars of the show attended...I saw some cuties at the event but didn't take any of them serious

Curvy Girls is pretty much the full figured version of Sex in the City that follows the lives of Denise, Rosie, Lornalitz and Ivory on their wild quest for fashion model stardom

What I DID know was that the camera crew taped the speed dating event for a reality show held @ The West 3rd Common in lower Manhattan NYC scheduled for a Fall release

What I DIDN'T know was that the show was gonna portray the guys @ the event as losers who weren't worth Lornalitz's and Ivory's time on some "lookin' for love in the wrong place" type shit

In all fairness, I trashed Lornalitz (she bored me) and Ivory (for BitchAssNess) when the camera crew interviewed me after my speed dating rounds with them...what's strange is that they picked me to post-interview about what I thought of the girls out of all the guys there...funny shit 

I thought Ivory and Lornalitz had IQs of cucumbers

What's fucked up is that the show edited out my roasting of them in the post-interview...Hahahahaha

Instead the producers, directors or whoever was in charge of the episode made it seem like the guys at the speed dating joint were flunkies and poo-butts (old school term for loser)

And you know what...

I took it like a sport

All in all, I had fun...would I do it again???


You only live once...and the "let's make these guys turn out to be losers" editing of the episode is funny to me and taught me a valuable lesson:

Never allow anyone control your image and how you're portrayed

Shit...I'm a good lookin' loser...the brother rockin' the grey suit with the matching hat is yours truly...Ivory and Lornalitz should've been lucky to inhale the same molecules I'm breathing

I'll fuck the dog shit outta Rosie and Denise, tho...they can get this work...real talk

I didn't see Rosie that night and Denise wasn't there

By the way...

...I wasn't serious in the segment with Ivory (I said my name was Ebony for cryin' out loud)...hell, I wasn't serious the whole's a reality show...I was just foolin' around on some goof ball shit

It is what it is

*makes animal noises*

Go straight to the 15-minute mark of the show if you don't feel like watching the entire episode

Aight ya'll...I'm out

Shout out to the makers of Curvy Girls and everybody involved in the project for showcasing plus size/full figured women in a beautiful light...much love

Kill the Heckler

Heckler - Someone who baits, provokes, or hounds

I have an interesting story to tell...

On a flight this past Saturday to Chicago to celebrate my born day (b-day was yesterday and I'm STILL accepting gifts)...I ran across a heckler on the plane

I won't use the word "hater" because for one, that term is too strong for the situation...and two, "hater" is overused like a hooker from Hunts Point

As the grinder I am, I passed out bookmarks to a few folks on the plane, even this cute ass stewardess, I mean flight attendant, rockin a short, honey blond hair style

This crazy lady sitting a row ahead of me to my right asked me some ridiculous questions in the middle of my discussing THICK to a lady sitting ahead of her

Crazy Lady: Something's funny going on. Are you sure this is a book?

Me: Yes, I wrote it

Crazy Lady: Did you write this book?

Me: Yep

Crazy Lady: Let me see some ID. Your name's not Nah'Sun

She really took it there

I pulled out my book and showed it to the lady in front of her, the lady who originally asked me about the bookmark that led us to discuss THICK

Crazy Lady continued with the heckling...

Crazy Lady: What do you mean by 'only a dog wants a bone'?

Me: Real men want women with some cushion for the pushin

Crazy Lady: I don't know...I'm just asking...something's funny about this...I don't think you wrote the book

Me (jokingly): You don't think a Black man can write a book because society says so?

Yeah, I took it there even though I probably shouldn't...but hey, I threw a jab at the Italian lookin' lady...she was clearly missing a few sandwiches at the picnic

Crazy Lady: I guess you're good considering you got a book out

Me  (Thinking to myself): There's a lot of people who don't deserve the author title, DUMBASS

I wasn't in the mood to fuel the fire of debate...I kept that thought in the dungeons of the mind

What's funny is that Crazy Lady thought I was using the bookmark to holla at the lady sitting ahead of her...I'm glad the lady shut that theory down by mentioning I'd given the bookmark to a few heads on the flight

The flight landing sucked...damn near snapped my neck...and I trooped through Midway with my carry-on luggage

I stopped to check my messages after leaving the security check-point exit, and this dude stepped to me...he asked about the book...dude was on the flight and heard the spat between Crazy Lady and I

I gave Seth (the guy's name) a bookmark and told him to hit me up...we shook hands and went our way

Moral of the story is...

Fuck what people might say or think of you...always carry yourself with dignity and your head high because you never know who's listening...don't take hecklers personal...some people hate their lives and project their frustration on you

I knew Crazy Lady wasn't right based on her erratic drunk-stroll through the terminal after she got off the plane...LOL

And with that said, I'm out like shout

The Art of Stick Ups Without a Gun


Looks like someone picked an apple from the cherry tree

To make a long story short, word on da street is that several authors that attended the Word on Da Street book fair hosted by Lisa Tyrrell Perry-Amos are fuming over what occurred last weekend

Authors are screaming foul about her allegedly jerking them outta bread

According to those who attended, Lisa was supposed to secure the Underground Atlanta for the book fair…the Underground claimed that Lisa never picked up the paperwork to secure the event…Lisa claimed she’d sent the paperwork to the Underground, and they didn’t make good on the contract by not delivering tables on the day of the event

Confusion is spreading like wildfire about what happened and what didn’t

You had a buncha authors fending for themselves in Atlanta after spending bread and traveling cross country to get their grind on

Now I’m reading on Facebook about threats of lawsuits and authors pressing to get their money back (Gotta love cyber drama)

Whether true or false...

The situation that occurred in Atlanta this past Saturday should teach aspiring and current authors as well as promoters a lesson of doing research before spending your hard earned dollars on events

The game can be ugly at times

I'm not taking sides because the outcome is still up in the air…I’m just gonna put things in perspective by criticizing the event ITSELF…NOT the person behind it

I knew from the RIP that the event was gonna have problems, and my point of view has nothing to do with Lisa’s character

1) There were TOO MANY authors on the same bill

You can't hustle on the same block and expect to make at least half of what you put in

I'll NEVER do book signings with a grip of authors on the same bill when the event is relatively unknown locally


2) The event was too new with someone who's not originally from there running the show

It takes a hot minute for a new venture to jump off...The Great Pyramids of Kemet (Egypt) weren't built in a day

A wise man once told me to "do the knowledge," which means stepping back and observing before saying or making a move

I don't know what exactly went wrong, but the best thing that the authors involved can do is charge that lesson to the game and move on after letting off steam

And for promoters to make sure their business is trump tight with a PLAN B when the milk goes sour

Don't worry about losing money...things happen for a reason...everyone gets fucked over at one point

The test is HOW you bounce back from a fuck over with or without vaseline

Aight, ya’ll

I’m out
