This is the latest music video for the book I am writing, “Inside The Forbidden Outside”. The description at YouTube for this video explains in more detail what this video is about. I am writing a soundtrack for the book with a piece of improvised piano for each chapter that has the same title. I am also making music videos as another way to promote what I am doing while I am doing it. They will be uploaded to You Tube as they are finished. There is another one there – “Waiting too Long”. Another one will be posted a week from Saturday. If you like what I have begun, please subscribe and share. We all know that it is the stats that brings other people in to see what we are doing. The hardest stat is #1.
This has been a major labor of love. I am on the second draft of the book. I had no idea what I was doing having no experience writing a book. Writing blog posts is not the same. I have had to go back to the drawing board over and over, and take online classes. Gradually, I am getting better.
The reason this is so important to me is because it is a true story, taken from letters between me and a prison inmate over 12 years. He is the father of one of my grandsons. He has 5 years to go, so it is s story still in the making. I started writing it because I knew, when he was released in 2023 he would be encountering an unfriendly world. He would not have the life experiences needed to navigate life as an uneducated black man with no job experience or tech experience of any kind. There was no “windows” in his life before. I am determined this book will open doors for him to be able to use his story and make money to survive. Without your support it can’t be possible. Only the power of sharing can make it possible. Below I have listed various sites were you can find him and my music.
