Top 5 Christmas Gifts…For Every Ye...

We rack our brains every year on what we will get those we love and care about. Sometimes it’s to our budget’s detriment, and even worse, every once and a while the gift we spent our hard earned money on isn’t even appreciated. Here are the top 5 gifts for every Christmas season that you can rest assured won’t be taken for granted-ever. 1. Give a gift that is needed. You know the people that you are giving gifts to.

Teen Pregnancy: Options and Costs

Teen Pregnancy: Options and Costs

I never watch the Lifetime channel. The movies are typically over dramatized to me but this one stood out for several reasons. I needed a break from marketing Legs Closed, my new book for young girls with conversations and provoking questions about their value and why they want to have sex at this age. Barnes and Noble in Tampa just agreed to bring my book into the stores and not just sell it online. A celebratory hour was deserved. So as I flipped through the channels The Pregnancy Pact caught my eye. The guide told me that a reporter returned to investigate a dramatic...

Why Doesn’t It Matter That Cardi B Didn’t Get A Louboutin Endorsement?

Why Doesn’t It Matter That Cardi B...

‘I make money moves,’ Cardi says in her song Bodak Yellow. Welp, not everyone agrees that this song made all of the money moves that it could have. Social media, as it does, began criticizing the artist, Cardi B, for not securing an endorsement from Christian Louboutin before giving them so much love in her song. Here are a few things about this. Many artists shot out brands that they love simply because they love them. We walk around talking about our favorites and they don’t pay us a penny. When was the last time that Jordan, MAC, Pepsi, iPhone, Benz or any of them sent...

Why The Best Writers Don’t Get Published Without An Editor

Why The Best Writers Don’t Get Pub...

I have been ghostwriting and editing for other writers for years. I love it. There is no other way to express how I feel about it. Sharing in the development and production of someone’s story is like nothing else I have experienced. But, that’s the writer in me-the editor. One of the things that make it so spectacular is bringing out the very best in what was already amazing. I say this all of the time and I will continue saying it in every piece that I write on editing. As the author, you are far too close and invested in the piece to be the only one working on it. YOU...

An editor, what’s that?

An editor, what’s that?

Hey hey! It’s Amani. The Ghostwriter. The Freelance Editor. I love for my writers to be well-equipped when publishing their babies. But better than equipped, I want them to be wise. I harp on the importance of getting their manuscripts professionally edited. So, let’s discuss the types of editors for when the time is right. Knowing what you need will help save resources and time. Writing and publishing can be expensive and timely. No need to add to that.

Men: How To Cope Without Being In The Home

Men: How To Cope Without Being In The Ho...

I knew this guy once. Sensitive thing he was. Some people can’t take life head on. He cried-a lot. One of these times was about his children, one boy one girl. He was especially emotion regarding his baby girl, and that seems natural. He and the mother weren’t together and as she was a typical bitter baby momma as any when a man moves on. She talked terribly about him to them. He was so scared that they would think he didn’t want or love them. Having grown up with my father out of the house, I decided to share some essential fundamentals to help him cope...

Pill Cosby: A Good Drink In Bad Taste

Pill Cosby: A Good Drink In Bad Taste

It is not unusual, especially in this capitalistic society, for businesses and individuals to capitalize on events or situations for their own benefits or gain. However, if not done properly, things often backfire. This is the case with D.C.’s bar, Diet Starts Monday. In 2014, allegations of sexual assault resurfaced for Bill Cosby and became a hot topic of discussion. The man whose T.V. family many of us grew up watching and idolizing in some form or fashion. An African-American dad with a successful marriage and traditional, wholesome family. A man with great standing...
