Chapter One

Luke and Yura: The Alaska Territory, 1925

 

My father deserted my mother and me when I was thirteen years

old. He had become famous that winter on the Great Race of Mercy, one

of the Athabascan mushers who brought diphtheria serum to Nome

and saved ten thousand lives. He’d done the impossible, a blind run in

the howling darkness, crossing the open ice of the Norton Sound, the

temperature falling to sixty below, the sun a distant dream. He was our

hero, our North Star.

 

And then he was gone.

 

He left us, of course, for a woman. A blizzard had hit him at

Unalakleet, a storm so powerful that it travelled four thousand miles,

till at last it reached New York and froze the Hudson River. The woman

lived in just that far-away land, on the wild island of Manhattan, and

her name was Kathleen Byrne. The Hearst papers had been giving the

Great Race front-page headlines; Kathleen was a reporter, lean and

hungry, she’d go to the ends of the earth for a good story, and one day

she got her chance.

 

No one in my hometown of Nenana had seen anything like her,

a slender redhead with emerald eyes, smoking Lucky Strikes and

exhaling expertly through her nostrils, this coolly confident young

woman with fiery hair.

 

She wanted details that would bring the story to life, so Father

brought her to our home to show off his sled dogs. At least, the ones

who’d survived, for three he had raised since they were pups had died

on the trail. Somewhere in the madness of that journey he’d forgotten

to cover their groins with rabbit skins, and they’d perished of frostbite

in the unfathomable cold.

 

I gaped at her stupidly.

 

“Excuse my son,” said my mother. “He has no manners.”

#VIRTUALBOOKTOUR Bre's Heavenly Adventures with Jesus #NEWBOOKALERT #CHILDRENBOOKS #GIVEAWAY @wnlbooktours

 



Write Now Literary is pleased to be organizing a two-week book tour and Amazon gift card giveaway for Bre's Heavenly Adventures with Jesus by Breanna Brown. The book tour will run Jan 11-22, 2021.

ASIN: B08R6M41Q1
Genre: Christian Children's Book







Bre Brown currently serves as the Youth Minister of Watchman Ministries, alongside her Husband Eric Smith, located in Fredericksburg, VA. She’s been regarded, as the "prophetic voice for the next generation." She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Louisville and currently possesses her qualified mental health professional registration in the state of Virginia. She is currently pursuing her graduate certificate in non-profit studies. She is the CEO and founder of Child Enrichment Solutions LLC. Which is a full-service coaching and consulting firm that helps youth to identify negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that inhibit them from achieving personal achievement utilize constructive coping strategies to lead happy, empowered, and successful lives.

 



Bre gets angry when her father breaks his promise and refuses to play with her. But Bre's mom tells her that she another father named Jesus-and he is the best father ever. He is always there, always ready to listen, and he will never stop loving her-even when she has made a mistake! So Bre goes to heaven to meet him...and this book will tell you what happened there!




"As the tears began streaming down her face. Her mama stopped to ask, "will you be ok?" Why doesn't he love me? Bre asked. He always does this! Do you think he's mad?"




How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I was able to tap back into my thoughts, feelings, and emotions as I once felt as a child and I was able to get back into the shoes of my 7-year-old self. Once I was able to take myself back to that place with the help of the holy spirit it was like the pages just began to write themselves.

 

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading your book?

What I want my adult readers to learn/discover is that it never too early to begin to have critical conversations with children. Children are always watching and modeling what we do as adults. So, it is very critical that we as adults set the examples for who we want our children to become because how we choose to interact with them early on will determine how they choose to interact with the world once they are adults. I also want my young readers to know that what happened to them does not define who they are but it’s what they decide to do with themselves after the moment passes that determines who they will become.

 

What inspired you to write this book? 

Definitely the leading of the holy spirit and wanting to bring healing to the younger generation and their families. When I was writing this book, I found that I was able to pour a lot of myself into the main character and was able to tap back into stories of trauma that I endured as a child such as not feeling loved by own my father. Although, years later we have reconciled our relationship the years of trauma that I endured behind it left me with a lot of deep wounds and scars that I am just now working on getting healed through the help of trauma therapy. If I can help any family or child not have to go the same route that I did that’s my goal.

 

What’s next for you?

Currently, I am launching my own Coaching and Consulting firm Called Child Enrichment Solutions LLC. I help youth identify negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions that inhibit them from personal achievement utilize constructive coping strategies that will  lead to  happy, empowered, and successful lives. Secondly, I am working on getting my second book ready to be published sometime around easter. Lastly, I am working on getting a few speaking engagements lined up to help motivate and encourage the youth.

 

In five words describe your book.

Jesus, Faith, Family, Unconditional Love, and Joy.

3 things you never leave home without?

Any advice to give to aspiring writers? 

My biggest piece of advice would be to just begin writing. I know I’ve always wanted to write books for years but, would always get stuck in my head on what and how I should write. I know during the writing process google was my best friend. I also joined a lot of fb writing and author groups; this has helped me to see what type of publications others are putting out there. Once you have written your book, I suggest allowing friends and family to read it, especially if you have teacher friend’s they can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to editing. Then after they look at it go to Fiverr.com and hire a professional editor to overlook your book and provide you with suggestions. From there, you can look up a graphic design artist that will help design book covers as well as format your book. When it comes to self-publishing look to do so on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble. However, if you want  to go the more traditional publishing route, I definitely say do research on the company that matches your values, standards of quality, and know how much you are willing to invest.

Freedom Speakz, born Freedom Jah’an Archie, is the petite but larger than life, multi-talented artist and Atlanta, Georgia native. She is a seventh grader currently attending Coretta Scott King Young Women’s leadership Academy.

 

As her name suggests, Freedom Speakz is a free-spirited young lady, who never misses an opportunity to fascinate audiences both big and small.  Freedom's love for the arts parallels her love of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). At just twelve years old, she is young yet fierce and confident.

 

Chizelle' T. Archie, is a native of Mobile, Alabama. She bursts on the literary scene in 2010 when she penned her debut novel, "The Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Diamond, in which the sequel shortly followed. “His Grace, His Blood, His Mercy! ”Chizelle’ is a mother to the joy of her life Freedom Jah’an A.K.A.

While riding in her super powered yet magical Freedom Cycle, Freedom Speakz, her friends, and yes you too, will help each other complete the wonderful activities that spell all things Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math!

 

 


 

The Little Girl in The Pink Dress

 

Freedom Speakz and her friends have a fun filled day in the park, as she recounts the story of how her infamous “Generations” speech came to be. In this true tale, she relives the moments from where it all began. As a tribute to Mrs. Coretta Scott King it was on that day she stood, and proclaimed FREEDOM for all to see. No one could have ever imagined that the voice of this little girl in a pink dress would forever change the world! 







 

How did you come up with ideas for the books? 


Freedom Speakz- “Coming up with ideas was the easy part. Most of it was all true. In “The Little Girl in the Pink Dress” where I gave my “Generations” speech this past January at the Commemorative Day for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the details surrounding that day and how it all started was the entire idea of the book. That day I met so many special and important people in history.”

Chizellé T. Archie- As she mentioned to get the idea was really the fun part. It made it seem so much netter that we were telling a story that actually happened. When I was asked could she recite the speech by her principals in which it would call for me to write it, I never thought in a million years that after that day we would be here! The day was one I myself will never forget, and when she came to me and said she wanted to put that day down in print, I could only say yes. 

In five words describe your book


Freedom Speakz-“STEAM Adventures with Freedom Speakz and Friends” Active, Educational, Fun, Versatile, Cultural

 

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading your books?


Freedom Speakz- I hope the readers, the children will realize they can be whatever they choose to be. They can do anything! I hope they will read the stories and learn who Mrs. Coretta Scott King was, and what part she played in history. I want them to learn that she was a great lady, and she contributed a lot to our history. 

Chizellé T. Archie-I am hoping that children all over the world will discover their dreams! I am hoping they will learn that they too can become a great part of history. Even that I they choose, they too can write their own stories. 

 

Why do you write? Is it something you’ve always done, or always wanted to do? Or is it something that you recently started?


Freedom Speakz-“I write because I want all children to know that they too can do it. They do not have to allow anyone to make them feel their gift is not valuable. God gave all of us a special gift and talents. I want them to never let anyone tell them they cannot! This is my first time ever writing. I wanted to do what my mother had done, follow in here footsteps. 

Chizellé- “I write because it is therapy for me. It allows me to go places that no one else can. I love telling stories. I love putting my thoughts down, having someone read it as if they are actually apart of the story. Making it as real as it can be.”


Excluding your own, name 3 books you would recommend to your friends and why?


Freedom Speakz- “Before She was Harriett” I would recommend this book because it tells the story of Araminta Tubman, and who she was before she became our fearless leader Harriet Tubman. 

“Betty Before X” I would recommend this book because you learn so much about the woman that was married to Malcolm X. You learn about her life, her family, and her story. 

“11 Before 12” This is a great book that teaches you lessons of going into middle school. It gives pointers on what to do, what not to do. Advice on boys and girls heading to teenage life. It has helped me a lot. 

 

Just for Fun

3 things you never leave home without

Freedom Speakz- Books, Business cards, and my cell phone!
