Sex & Surrender: An Addicts Journey by A.D. Burks

Dear Book Club Coordinator,

SEXWith a writing style similar to E. Lynn Harris and James Baldwin, A.D. Burks is also African American and gay. Known for their unique passions and causes, as well as their stories, A.D. follows in their giant footsteps with a different mission. So many people have asked A.D. whether his story is true, embellished or fabricated. “It’s all true,” he says. “All the pain, all the acting out, and all the recovery are mine.” By openly sharing his life, your book club’s members will be captivated by the book, spend hours discussing his message, and may personally benefit from what they learn.

10460447_896873063662805_5226095322603972962_nA.D. says, “What you don’t address, you can’t change!” He brings a message that is both inspirational and necessary for our communities’ health. Sex addiction is like other addictions—a disease of the mind, body and spirit. It ruins not only the lives of the addicts, but also the lives of those with whom they have relationships. And most importantly, sex addiction can promote AIDS through frequent and unprotected sex.

In Sex and Surrender: An Addict’s Journey, A.D. offers an unflinching, yet vulnerable story of his recovery from sex addiction. His message is one of hope for those who are walking or have walked in his shoes.

Thank you for considering Sex and Surrender: An Addict’s Journey as a new selection for your group.

995254_754197294597050_458350606_nA.D. states: “My purpose and mission is to share my story, provide hope and help others who have been affected by addiction, either directly or indirectly. From my experiences and God’s grace, I have created a four-step process which can be utilized to break the addictive cycle.”

“Fiction versus Non-Fiction” Do Your Readers Know The Difference ?

Fiction v. Nonfiction

WBMG LOGO

The distinction between fiction and nonfiction has been blurred in recent years. Novelists (writers of fiction) have based stories on real life events and characters (nonfiction), and historians (writers of nonfiction) have incorporated imagined dialogue (fiction) to suggest the thoughts of historical figures.

Texts are commonly classified as fiction or nonfiction. The distinction addresses whether a text discusses the world of the imagination (fiction) or the real world (nonfiction).

Fiction: poems, stories, plays, novels
Nonfiction: newspaper stories, editorials, personal accounts, journal articles, textbooks, legal documents

Fiction is commonly divided into three areas according to the general appearance of the text: stories and novels: prose–that is, the usual paragraph structure–forming chapters

Poetry: lines of varying length, forming stanzas

Plays: spoken lines and stage directions, arranged in scenes and acts
Other than for documentaries, movies are fiction because they present a “made up” story. Movie reviews, on the other hand, are nonfiction, because they discuss something real—namely movies.

Note that newspaper articles are nonfiction—even when fabricated. The test is not whether the assertions are true. Nonfiction can make false assertions, and often does. The question is whether the assertions claim to describe reality, no matter how speculative the discussion may be. Claims of alien abduction are classified as nonfiction, while “what if” scenarios of history are, by their very nature, fiction.

This autobiographical book is the story of the author’s tumultuous marriage to her husband and how she reconnected with God through this stormy period in her life. Her book is to bestow a message of hope to readers that God is present in all situations of life, even the stormy ones, and that you can overcome your circumstances only with God’s love and support. For a life story that is marked with several unsettling forms of abuse, the author makes sure to chronicle how God made Himself visible and ushered change into her life. There is a healthy balance of details about her abusive past and about her change in spiritual perspective towards her past. Readers will attest to feeling similar emotions that the author expresses and will be encouraged to follow the same path towards forgiveness as well. The author provides an understandable flow of thought from chapter to chapter in the book, concluding the purpose of previous chapter at its end before starting the next purpose in the next chapter. Readers will not be confused at all by the content’s flow and will appreciate the added attention to detail the author gives in her book. The book is a moving tribute to how God can turn even the most disastrous situations into declarations of faith and trust in Him. The author uses her story to bring God’s presence to the attention of others, which will reassure readers that there is a plan and hope-filled purpose even in destitute situations in their lives.

January 11, 2014
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.
10511129_10204564295694246_2374713043322307101_nAll 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!
