Hopeful Me

By

Marc Brooks

My eyes are wide open and filled with the light

This new day begins, and the sun is mightily bright

Hope fills my mind and spills over from my heart

Hope spawned of love is both the end and the start

Upon my hopeful spirit there shall never be a night


The Bigger Picture 

By

Raea Miller

Momma, why are there people in the street?

Momma, why do they look angry?

Momma, why do these people show defeat?

Momma, could that happen to me?

Momma said that black people are not treated fair.

So why is it that everyone is now starting to care?

MANA Celebrates National Poetry Month!

April is National Poetry Month, the largest literary celebration in the world. Established in 1996 by the American Academy of American Poets (AAAP), the annual celebration brings public awareness to the art of poetry.

The Academy was inspired by the successful celebrations of Black History Month in February and Women's History Month in March.

The goal of National Poetry Month is to:

• highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing  
  achievement of American poets;
• encouraging the reading of poetry;
• help teachers in bringing poetry into their classroom;
• encourage increased publication and distribution 
  of poetry books; and 
• encourage support for poets and poetry.

MarketingNewAuthors.com (MANA) supports the efforts of the AAAP. We help poets and writers of prose self-publish and market their works. In celebration of National Poetry Month, we will introduce you to poetry written by MANA authors.

If you love poetry, then we hope you enjoy the poetry excerpts we provide this month on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and blog posts will give you some enjoyment as we face this global challenge together.

The poems we have selected to feature are from the books below. To preview the books and to find out more information, click on the title of the book which will take you to the book's webpage: 

A Message From MANA and RDP

Robbie Dean Press
Many parts of America are reopening after a three-month lockdown due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, we are still facing challenging times across our nation and around the world because the virus has not been eradicated. 

People are still contracting the disease, while others are recovering from the virus. Thousands of families are still grieving over the unexpected loss of their loved ones due to the coronavirus.  
MarketingNewAuthors.com

MarketingNewAuthors.com (MANA) and its parent company, Robbie Dean Press, extend heartfelt condolences to those who have suffered a loss, and good wishes for a speedy recovery to those diagnosed with COVID-19. 

Many people are reconnecting with family and friends after a forced separation to prevent exposure to the virus. Hopefully, the separation has taught us how to better appreciate the people in our lives. 

Without a doubt, COVID-19 has left us overwhelmed and feeling afraid, frustrated, and confused. One way to process our feelings is writing, which can be therapeutic. Writing down our feelings, thoughts, and emotions, either through journaling or free writing, can be powerful. It can also help others who are having the same type of experience that you are either experiencing or have found the strength to overcome. 

If you have expertise in a certain area, consider writing a self-help book. If you want to inspire others, consider inspirational writing. 

MANA continues to support its authors and others interested in exploring the world of self-publishing and traditional publishing. If you started writing a book during your forced time indoors, we encourage you to finish. If you haven't started writing your book, there's no better time like the present. It's never too late to start writing your book. 

If you need help getting started in achieving your dream of becoming an author or writing another book, do not hesitate to contact MANA.

Stay alert, take precautions, but go the distance with your writing!

New Book Release: "Nick Christopher: Time Traveler"

Nick Christopher: Time Traveler
What does a young scientist do when his mother dies, leaving him alone, devastated and wondering about this responsibility as an only child? 

For Dr. Nick Christopher, the answer is easy.

He must go back in time to save her, and, in the process, uncover the questions he has always had about the sudden, and rather mysterious, death of his father, a broken Vietnam War veteran whose life’s dreams have been shattered. 

With help from his life-long friend, Paul Roberts, a renowned scientist, Nick travels back in time to the years before his birth, so he can talk to his mother and change her future. 
He (Nick's father) had died suddenly before Nick was born, but the trauma of his death had done little to cool his mother's feelings and sometimes bitter resentment about him as a husband.
But just as Nick discovers a way to go back in time, so do forces who have their own dark agenda for changing the past to fit their image of the future. So, what happens when Nick runs into these mysterious, unidentified agents? 

Nick Christopher: Time Traveler is the first fiction novel by Dr. Gregory Shafer, an English professor whose nonfiction textbooks include Process & Voice in the Writing Workshop, and Propaganda—American Style: A Textbook for Critical Thinkers (Click on the titles to read our blog posts each book).
