I Am The Black Nazai

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

I wrote the Black Nazai as a fantasy poem about a black man who is trying to hold on to his self control as he faces the cumulative effects of perhaps a lifetime of being misunderstood. There is no victory for him other than standing up for his children's future.

The American Journey Of Mel And Corny

By Conlan  (booksie.com)

Melissa is a free-spirited, 19 year old woman who feels oppressed in the old east. She finds freedom in traveling, and learns much along the way. The setting alternates between the 1880's and 1910-20's in terms of mannerisms and the K.K.K., so please do not be perturbed by the inconsistencies.
