Detroit Writers Collaborate to Give Hope

The most valuable gift in your Christmas stocking this year could very well be a book. Five writers from two generation will unveil “The Soul of a Winner,” an anthology about overcoming insurmountable challenges to achieve success.

If you listen to the local and even national news, you will likely hear stories of Detroit’s doom and gloom, however one group of writers know that behind the rough exterior of “The D,” heroes are being born. For the past several months, these writers have been coming together to discuss ways they could use their expertise and accomplishments to impact lives and what they came up with is nothing short of a modern literary masterpiece.

As they shared their stories of jumping the hurdles of teen pregnancy, poverty, mental illness, homelessness and severe health challenges to not only survive, but to thrive in life and in business, it was evident that their experiences would prove to be a resource that could change lives. Just in time for Christmas, this book for short stories and success-isms is complete and ready to be ingested like a warm elixir, bringing healing to the soul.

Authors Versandra Kennebrew, Tammy L. Turner, Javay Johnson, Hugh Johnson and Chris Lee invite you to celebrate the launch of something big. “The Soul of a Winner” is not just a book but a movement that they believe will inspire people from all walks of life to stay in the race until they win. In this book, they each reveal very intimate details about their path to success because so many people hide the truth about their journey for fear of ridicule and judgment. They want their readers to know that no matter how things look on their way to the top, they have the soul of a winner and they can persevere.

Impact Writers presents, “The Soul of a Winner: Five True Stories of Success,” Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 4p at The Westin Southfield Detroit located at 1500 Town Center Southfield, MI 48075.
