Book Writing Adventures

Me on the Tom Joyner Morning Show! Plus…

So I’m gonna need all of you all go get some holy water and sprinkle it in my general direction (I live in California), because tomorrow morning (5:15 AM PST/ 8:15 AM EST) I’m going on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to talk about SWIRLING. But…in addition to doing the interview, I’m sharing something HUGE with all of you before I tell the whole world.

We are to enter an agreement with State Street Pictures to package SWIRLING for presentation to major studios for a major motion picture.

No; I’m not kidding. They’ll handle getting the writers for the script, the casting, etc., and wrap it up in a pretty bow to present to BIG WIG STUDIOS in hopes they’ll buy it. (Again, holy water in my general direction, people).

And State Street isn’t Your Mom’s Garage Productions, either. They’re responsible for bringing the following movies to you:

Soul Food

Men of Honor

Barber Shop 1 & 2

Beauty Shop

Roll Bounce

Nothing Like the Holidays



Janice and I absolutely love the team and vision George Tillman Jr. and creative exec, Stacy Glassgold, have for SWIRLING–they read the book, loved the concept and want to see that it’s a success. And don’t expect SWIRLING to be a movie with walking and talking stereotypes, because Janice and I will be executive producing it. 😉

I can’t even tell you how FRICKIN’ EXCITED!!! I am right now. Janice is excited too, but she’s more cool and calm about these things than I am.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you guys first, because you all are like family, and I couldn’t have done it without you.
