The Return of Author G D Grace’s Blog Talk Radio Show “A Touch of Grace” Summer of 2012

The Return of Author G D Grace’s Blog Talk Radio Show “A Touch of GraceSummer of 2012.  Much has transpired in my life since the last show on September 2, 2011.  Currently, I am deep off into finishing up my sixth literary project entitled, “Daddy”.  This particular book has required more focus and determination than the first five because it was necessary for me to return to the demands of a nine to five, but where there is a will there is a way.

In the Spring of 2011 I led a gypsy-like existence, living from place to place, and commuting almost two-hours one way sometimes, but in that time I wrote the short story, “July’s Independence”, that was featured in the 2011 July edition of Tiffany Lewis’ “Thematic” Magazine.

By the time Fall of 2011 arrived I was blessed with a new gig that offered me an opportunity that I would have been a fool to turn down.  Needless to say one thing remained constant throughout the days and nights — my writing.  In addition to “Daddy,” I started working on the novels, “Red,” “ICON,”, & “Rise”, and even piddled around with a fourth installment of my well received series, “Ripped & Ready”.  Desire is one thing and reality is another.  In order to keep a roof over my head there has to be income, so writing and employment are a mainstay in my life currently.

I could go into detail about my decision to put “A Touch of Grace” in an indefinite state of hiatus, but a true professional keeps those private tales to himself — at least for now.  So, that said, I had to draw a circle in the sand and communicate my plans for the show.  Yes, “A Touch of Grace,” will return.  I have several new ideas for it, and they involve seeking the help from a couple of trusted peers to help run the show.  This expansion idea from the normal format has been on my mind for quite some time.  The benefits of a partnership far outweigh those of an independent operation to me, so those individuals will be receiving proposal letters from me.

There are also a couple of authors that I owe interviews to and they will be amongst the first to be interviewed, and in addition to the literary arena, I will continue my exploration beyond the parameters of word into the music world. The lovely, Mary Edwards, was my first musical guest ever, and she currently has a new CD being released, so I’ll be bringing her back to “A Touch of Grace,” but there are several others that I’ve been networking with over the past year who I will be bringing on.

This time around, “A Touch of Grace,” will be bigger and better.  Life really does get better when you participate in it.

In the meantime, keep writing, singing, and following your passion, because life is really too short not to,

All the best,

Author & Blog Talk Radio Producer, G D Grace

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
