  27. Sylvia,
    I would like to ask of you… if you would post two of my books on your site. I think that your site is all that and then some. I have written two Urban fiction Novels and I am struggling to get my Novels out into the world for everyone to enjoy. As much as I enjoyed creating and featuring these two books, the works were done for everyone’s reading and mind enhancements which were very important to me as I worked very hard. I have a very deep and strong passion as an a Author and yearn to continue following my dreams as another creative writer. Sylivia, hopefully you can lend a helping hand in these hard and surviving times. My latest Book is called I’m Coming For Yah! And it is all action, drama with a twist of firery intellengence throughout it’s contents of the whole book. My first Book is called A Sin At Birth. This book is an all in one with it’s Urban fiction relations to how it is in today’s world with the effects of our urban everyday living. These are Two Hit Tales that were made to be really enjoyed and they can be viewed at my Author’s Websites At: or
    God Bless and Thanks for listening Sylvia!

  31. Reviews for Backstop: A Baseball Love Story in Nine Innings, by Michigan author J. Conrad Guest:

    “… by the time you get to the last ‘inning’ of this
    ‘game,’ you’ll be rooting for Backstop to succeed both on and off the field. He’s not perfect, for sure, but he’s a good guy at heart, and a great baseball player! And like me, you’ll be glad you read this book, whether you’re a sports fan or not.”

    —Terri Kirby Erickson, author of Telling Tales of Dusk

    “In Backstop, J. Conrad Guest offers an entertaining and instructive journey into both major league baseball and major league matters of the heart.”

    —Jeff Vande Zande, author of Landscape with Fragmented Figures

    “Baseball, like love, is a game of errors and regrets. Pop-outs, ground-outs, strike-outs. A bad swing, a bad throw, a bad hop. But what captivates us most is the possibility of the next at-bat, of the chance for a rally, of an unlikely clutch play that suddenly changes the stakes. This is where J. Conrad Guest meets us in Backstop: in this beautiful, hopeful place closest to our hearts, where we play for the love of the game, and we love with everything we have.”

    ─Rachael Perry, author of How to Fly

  32. Hi,

    I just joined the Michigan Literary Network and can’t believe I hadn’t joined earlier. It looks like a great place to be to meet and network with other folks in the literary community.

    I just self-published my first fiction book, a short story collection, called The Fear Within. It’s available at amazon. Do I need to be a member of the MLN for some time before I can have it added to the site?

    I look forward to networking with others here and possibly attending some of the events coming up. Just a note, I’m a tad on the shy side so aggressively promoting my book will be a huge step for me. :-)
