Excerpt from “Daddy” the forthcoming novel by five-time self-published Author G D Grace (spring 2013)

IMG_1023[1]Jackson Young pauses, carefully choosing his words as he speaks at the funeral of his deceased estranged wife.

“Did I love Natalie? Yes, with ever fiber that runs throughout my body; however, loving someone means nothing if those feelings are not mutual.”

He pauses again, struggling to maintain his composure as he stood in a dignified manner, gripping the upper-ledge of the center podium.

Scanning the room, he focused on familiar faces seated in various locations throughout the crowded church. He smiles wickedly, as if preparing to tell a dirty joke.

Then, he spoke.

“She loved money. Money was her God… I hope she can spend it in hell!” He sneered, as he shot a pained glance at the coffin.

The entire sanctuary gasped in unison. Without a second thought to respect, he ended his moment with an out of place truth he could not take back.

“Dad, how dare you disrespect my mother at her own funeral!” Harlem cried out in anger.

“Fuck that slut!” He uttered, tossing a gold dollar piece in the direction of the coffin.

“Here’s one for the road,” he growled, as he exited up the center isle in haste.

All hell broke loose.

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…
