Please read about her upcoming book on her blog intense sensations. My current book is called Like. After I wrote the title poem, I thought, why not put together a mini collection of poems that explored the themes of like, love, and hate? I wanted to turn these emotions into something concrete. In my poetry, the characters vary from poem to poem.
Poems about life, a dress, a god, and a smell. I have published Like. The Indie Author community is very supportive. In turn, I support it and participate in mutual efforts to promote other indie authors.
I support non-indie authors, too! The time it takes for me to write a first draft of a poem varies. Usually, I try to write a first draft either in one sitting or over a period of days so that I tap into the initial emotional state I was in when I began writing it.
The first drafts of the other poems in the volume took several days. But then again, I try to add a unique touch to everything I produce. With Like. Also, I created the cover myself.
They inspired me to take chances with my poetry. My goal is to continue to self-publish my work. So for the next Next Big Thing, look for other mini poetry collections from me in the future. This is a small volume of poetry you can read in one sitting yet still enjoy on repeat readings. There are lots of sights, sounds, and smells to draw the reader in.
The feelings and situations described are relatable. Other fab authors who might like to tell the world about about their next big thing This is always the hardest part for me , particularly because I know a whole lot of authors. Please visit their sites. It was slow getting off the ground, but they struck gold with "Lady Marmalade" and its "voulez-vous couchez avec moi" chorus. Then, after a couple more top-notch albums, they split up to do solo projects.
Hendryx and LaBelle have released a steady stream of albums, the best of which are excellent; Dash has kept a lower profile apart from the disco hit "Sinner Man" and a tour with Keith Richards and the X-Pensive Winos. Since LaBelle's not a songwriter, she mostly sounds like whoever's producing her; Hendryx writes most of her own material, but she works so hard to keep up with trends that her output is even more variable than Patti's.
Personally I don't put LaBelle in the top rank of singers with Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin , but she's a strong, idiosyncratic interpreter whether she's belting or whispering, and Hendryx is an insightful writer with a broad emotional range.
I was lucky enough to see Labelle's reunion tour in early ; unluckily for you, I reviewed the show. Patti LaBelle's own site has a lot of good information mixed in with fluff like ads for her perfume. Birdsong left, Backing musicians varied, but pianist Bud Ellison was involved in much of the 70s recording.
Hendryx and Dash stay in the background, the band plays simple Muscle Shoals-influenced arrangements, and the disc sounds surprisingly like an Aretha Franklin knockoff. Though Hendryx is already the most prolific, each of the singers gets at least one co-write, the only time this would happen in the group's history. Produced by Kit Lambert and Vicki Wickham.
DBW Moon Shadow There are still a couple of covers here, but they come off way better: " Won't Get Fooled Again " is unimaginative but brief, and the title track by Cat Stevens is transformed into a lengthy, simmering funk jam with bizarre, spacey meditations from Patti. DBW Pressure Cookin' At this point, Labelle sound like they clearly understand their niche: fastpaced funk-rock and overwrought ballads.
The title track gets things off to a furious start, leading up to the album's masterpiece, a medley of the light, lazy "Something In The Air" with Gil Scot-Heron's proto-rap "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," searingly rendered by all three singers. Everything else was written by Hendryx, except for Stevie Wonder 's so-so love song "Open Up Your Heart," which receives a fine full-voiced treatment from the vocalists.
The record sort of runs out of steam near the end, thanks to some generic pop tunes "Mr. The rest of the record isn't so good, though: Hendryx contributes two fine tunes with clever lyrics "Somebody Somewhere," "Are You Lonely?
DBW Phoenix This is about as underrated as the previous album is overrated: this time Hendryx wrote a pile of entertaining spacey lyrics and set them to slow, mutating funk. But there's a lot of good original material too: the singles were the discofied "Joy To Have Your Love" co-written by Parker and the slow ballad "You Are My Friend," both heavily laden with strings.

Nona Hendryx would adopt the LaBelle backing band and re-emerge with her own rock-based act in She had some success with the initial version of "Winning," later a hit for Santana , but failed to have a big solo breakthrough.LABELLE Nightbirds / Phoenix / Chameleon ( issue UK track 3-on-2 CD album set comprising the 'Nightbirds', 'Phoenix' & 'Chameleon' albums from the mids, and features the classic smash hit single, 'Lady Marmalade'.
