JUNE 2007

**MARC'S WEEKLY MUSE** - June 29th, 2007
A highly requested poetic medium of uplift...to brighten your day!!!

*Last night...all poets rocked out at Sugarhill in Atlanta for V103's Live Poetic Moments broadcast with Joyce Littel. The venue stacked-pack...even though it rained!

*Last weekend was completely outrageous as many poets/spoken word artists swarmed the City of Atlanta for Written Images Annual Poetry Festival...If you were at Luv Mecca or The Apache Cafe, you may have seen HBO DEF POETS: Tommy Bottoms, Queen Sheba, Will Da Real One, Georgia Me, Black Ice, Abyss, Red Storm and a host of other talented poets and spoken word artists. The stage was on fire as the mics were blazin'!
Question: Marc where (online) can I find Rock and Fire?
Answer: marclacy.com, amazon.com, cuschity.com, blackbooksplus.com, mosaicbooks.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
*Next week, I will have a list of bookstores around the nation where the book is available.
Don't forget to place those Rock and Fire reviews on amazon. 5-Stars thus far!

Like Radio Raheem my dream is to have peace and love implanted within my flow to encourage you to do the right thing... So that when you put my voice on blast The 20 D batteries for which you ask get drained as soon as the sound begins to rain from the threeways... No how No way will I just stand as a child in Darfur cried without my voice being amplified... You wanna know the truth... We've got to save the youth...

Beyonce sang and swayed as Stevie, Chaka, and Erykah payed homage to Ms. Ross, Gerald Levert was remembered as a strong wind beneath a lot of wings... I just hope and pray that as celebs sing Children will know what it means to work hard for what blings... Moreover...put value in "values" per the simple things life brings...

Prone are they to make you turn your head and marvel at the melody bred from the chimin' of the ringer... Singers croon as we swoon into a trance while freezing in our stance not really believing that this is a cell phone sounding off loud and clear like this... All you have to do is send a text and next time someone calls you from afar... You can party like rockstar before you pick up...

There is an apparent rush to plan a celebration on this date... Don't know if it has to do with luck or fate as the triple seven resonates like Popeye's Chicken on a plate... "We can't wait!" Screamed the bride and groom to be... Hopefully they will put more into the marriage than the wedding which has been planned beautifully...

You can catch them on late night cable TV... They sell anything from knife sets, recipies, to workout techniques... Ahhhh...you best believe that the thrust is always the mighty dollar regardless of the smiles and beautiful words exuded that makes you want to holler... Bottom line, Everyone is entitled to gain from basic economics... But if you consume more than you produce... It is not ironic that a true profit will never come to you... If more people learn to create, market, and mass produce The garden will certainly yield some solid sweet fruit...

Derek Press announces the release of a new Children's Book

(Chattanooga, TN, 2007 Derek Press, a subsidiary of Pathway Press, announces the release of a new children's book entitled THE ISLAND OF ABANDONED DREAMS, by Nneka A. Gunn. This book contains the legendary tale of a young boy who must choose between deserting his dream forever or venturing on a dangerous journey to rescue his destiny.

Do you ever wonder where abandoned dreams go? Well, when you cease to believe, your dreams cease to exist. In THE ISLAND OF ABANDONED DREAMS, Gunn addresses the need for young children to continually strive to achieve their dreams and aspirations. In today's world, children encounter many hurdles that may threaten their dreams such as bullies, sex, drugs, poverty, and lack of support from parents. But if they persevere, Gunn believes, they can and will accomplish their goals.

THE ISLAND OF ABANDONED DREAMS is the incredible legend of Elijah, a courageous boy who undertakes a feat no other human has survived rescuing his dream from the shadowy and forlorn island where forgotten dreams go. Set in a village in Manakara, the orphaned Elijah is raised by his wise grandmother, Mahlii. One day, Elijah returns home, discouraged from his dream of becoming a famous soccer player by school bullies. Mahlii recounts the story of the Island of Abandoned Dreams and prepares him for a mission he will never forget. The reader will share the adventure as Elijah makes the trek to save his dream from the four-armed monster that guards every crystallized dream.

Illustrated by Riccardo Williams, this vivid storybook sparks the child's imagination with a message they can fully comprehend and enjoy. While THE ISLAND OF ABANDONED DREAMS imparts wisdom and guidance to today's youth, this is no dull preachy read. This amazing story is chock-full of all the elements kids love: mythical monsters, magical tools, perilous excursions, and a helpful animal friend. THE ISLAND OF ABANDONED DREAMS is a must for children and readers of all ages as a tool of encouragement to withstand the trials that come before success. This moving tale of triumph is sure to entertain and inspire children and adults for generations to come.
