P.I.P.E. Juice: Peoples Intimate Pleasures Exposed by Mikey Brownstone

download (2)Strangers collide in Mikey Brownstone’s tantalizing new novel, P.I.P.E. Juice. Full of shocking sexual behavior, unconventional lifestyles, and painful self-discovery, this welcome addition to the world of erotic fiction pushes the boundaries of sexual norms as it explores exactly what can happen when honesty comes from within. Ten strangers converge at a sex addiction group therapy session in New York City. Led by the world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. Jay, who is no stranger to temptations of the flesh, these meetings are supposed to dig into the deepest and most intimate parts of the attendees’ lives. Some are there by choice, while others have been forced by the powers that be. Regardless of the reasons, these addicts will be forced to confront their darkest secrets and most shameful fears while struggling to get to the bottom of their destructive behaviors. All walks of life are represented in the captivating P.I.P.E. Juice, from a star lawyer with an addiction to escorts, a mischievous middle-aged Italian housewife whose Jewish husband loves to watch, a promising virgin ball player, and a naive Christian girl led into prostitution by a trusted church official, to an overweight single mom desperately searching for more than just a hookup, a bipolar/bisexual woman from Harlem who is willing to try anything once if the price is right, a proud Italian construction worker from Staten Island who can’t get enough of African-American women, and a single father living in the Bronx who became ensnared in a torturous game of truth or dare. Each sexually charged tale helps reveal the source of their addictions, leading every single one down a road of truth and healing. The issues explored within the pages of P.I.P.E. Juice prompt deep discussions about the very nature of sex and the role that it plays within our society today. It is ultimately a book that shows how those coming from different beliefs, moral systems, and views on sex can find redemption if they are honest with themselves.Group Therapy will never be the same again!

DJ Gatsby Book Club Spotlights: Novelist Blacc Topp “Corporate Amerikkka”

Novelist Blacc Topp is one of the most talented authors writing books today. He does not consider himself to be a writer and he prefers to be called a “Novelist” because he writes Novels. He has a catalog of books that i highly recommended to any and all who enjoy intellectually intriguing & entertaining “Novels”. Jeff DJ Gatsby” Wilson

Black Topp was born to a father that was a gangster turned preacher and a mother that was a singer, artist, and scholar. He was born into a family of preachers, pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers, dope-fiens, and squares. BlaccTopp was raised on the streets of South Dallas, Texas. After the death of his father, feeling as though he had nowhere to turn he turned to the gang. The neighborhood gang, Dixon Circle 357um Gangsta Crips is where he would learn to become ruthless and unfeeling. Although he was deep in the gang and game he continued his studies for fear that his mother would make him move to Florida.

By the age nineteen he had been shot three times and was on his way to the Texas Department of Corrections with a forty-year prison sentence for distribution of narcotics. While inside he lost his youngest sister to the violence of drugs in 1996. After serving seven years he was granted parole (mainly due to his mother’s efforts). He used the education that he obtained inside to land a job at a top engineering firm in Texas. He used his love of word play to push himself to local fame on the hip-hop scene in Texas and Florida but, he would lose his mother to cancer in 2006, only to lose his oldest sister to cancer in 2008 and he knew something had to change. He began to chronicle his life, his mishaps and his capers which gave birth to The Hustle Chronicles, his debut novel and soundtrack of the same name. He is a father to three young children and husband to a beautiful and supportive wife. They reside in the state of Florida.

From Gutter To Glory by Dr Kerlene Richardson

This autobiographical book is the story of the author’s experience as a young immigrant from Jamaica. The author details her journey of homelessness after being kicked out of her mother’s house. Her journey as a homeless teen on the streets of Brooklyn began after being raped, resulting in a pregnancy that she did not abort. The author chronicles her experience of living on the ‘A’ line subway, in an abandoned building, and begging for quarters on the streets of Brooklyn to feed her daughter. The author provokes readers’ thoughts as she takes readers through various emotions with details of her life as a victim of rape, a teen mother, a hustler, and an abused spouse; eventually turning to God where she sought refuge. She could have let her disastrous journey dictate her future. Instead, she persevered earning a doctorate in health administration and becoming a professor who motivates her students with her story. The intent of the book is to shed light on issues people are ashamed to confront. Each chapter takes readers through the pain felt, but conquered. The author’s captivating story is a vivid reminder of the power of God. Despite the turmoil in your life, failures and deceptions, you too, can move from your current situatedness, going From Gutter To Glory!
