February Podcasts Offer Opportunity for Self-Reflection and Soul Searching

Writers in the Sky February Podcasts to Feature Tools to Put Your Soul on the Page and Three Works of Fiction that Challenge Our Spiritual and Cultural Beliefs

Nashville, TN, January 29, 2010 – The Writers in the Sky podcast enters this traditional month of love by presenting interviews that focus on the beauty that exists within our own souls as well as in the connection we find with spirits beyond our world. February starts with a book that teaches its readers how to develop the creativity and wisdom offered by our souls through writing. The month continues with a novel that addresses the difficult issues of cultural identity and stereotypes through the emotional story of one family. The following week brings an emotionally raw look at one woman’s re-evaluation of the strengths of her spiritual beliefs. The month comes to a close with a work of fiction that reveals the very real impact of charismatic personalities on our lives.

On February 5, Janet Conner will be sharing her book, Writing Down Your Soul, when podcast host Yvonne Perry interviews her about the mysterious process of tapping into the higher wisdom of your soul through writing. This is more than journaling. It's not automatic writing; it's something totally different. Learn how to find out what your soul and divine guidance is trying to share with you. Janet will share how to write from theta brain waves that support creativity rather than beta waves associated with stress (where many people live their daily lives).

Yvonne Perry will interview Maxine Thompson on February 12 about her new novel Hostage of Lies, which is published by Urban Soul. The story is a vivid portrait of Reverend Godbolt's family and his forebears. The family's secrets set the stage for a profound and provocative debate about black identity and destiny in America's past and present. The novel deals with the issue of adoption which often runs counter to African American culture due to the history of children being sold away from their mothers.

The podcast series continues on February 19 when Sarah Moore welcomes author Wilson Awasu as he discusses his new book Kim’s Confessions. In this novel, the title character approaches her church and her faith with a sense of entitlement. She presents a long family history and active involvement in her congregation as her defenses for not questioning the strength of her relationship with God. However, her entire belief system is changed when she reluctantly attends a seminar called “Radical Growth.”

On February 26, Barbara Fifield will be joining the podcast for an interview about Lucifer Rising. This new release tells the story of a female reporter who profiles a local religious cult leader and ends up being drawn into a relationship with him. Even when she learns of his history of violence and adultery, she cannot seem to escape. Lucifer Rising combines aspects of a thriller, romance, and exploration of the paranormal. During the interview, Ms. Fifield will share how her previous profession contributed to the writing of her new book, why she wanted to tackle the controversial issue of cults, and what she has planned next for her readers.

“I am so excited to have a month of interviews in which we can focus on issues of spirituality and the power of examining the potential within our own souls,” shares Yvonne Perry, owner of Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services, which produces the podcast. “I hope that our listeners find something during our February interviews that will stay with them long after the month is over.”
