Darnell Streat – Emperor’s Cut Cigars www.emperors-cut.com/

Nicky and I had a great discussion with Darnell about his new endeavors.  Darnell has cultivated a unique brand of cigars, that will be for sale in July.  A lot of thought and energy has been put into creating a unique cigar for those who enjoy a smooth, sensual taste that will relax you and take you away from all your problems.   Indulging in this cigar is like indulging in the rarest diamonds, it is game changing and a stand-alone brand.  Darnell’s product is so enticing, it made Nicky and I want to try it when they go on sale; and neither one of us are smokers.  Books, Wine and Emperor’s Cut Cigar – now doesn’t that sound heavenly.  Listen to the entire interview via the link below.

Dwayne Jones – Digital Graphic Artist https://www.facebook.com/dwayne.b.jones

We were happy to welcome Dwayne back to the show to discuss his first art exhibition in New York on July 22nd.  Dwayne is a very talented artist and deserves this opportunity to display his talent.  We encourage all to visit Dwayne’s Facebook page and purchase his stimulating pieces of work.   Nicky & I will try our best to make it to the exhibition and go live so all my Prosers can experience this upcoming fabulous display of art.

The Journey to Mara Prose – A Memoir told via Poetry!

My poetry memoir has somehow beat the Davenports onto Amazon. The eBook and Paperback are available right now and if you have Amazon Kindle Unlimited, it is completely FREE!

I initially paid a consultant to format the Journey to Mara Prose for Amazon, but it was nowhere near my standards. So the perfectionist in me stayed up all Saturday night completely reformatting the entire book from scratch. I added new poetry and even revised some of my existing poetry to include a fresh take on my most popular poems.

I am very proud of this work and it allows my Prosers into the most vulnerable and raw side of my personality; a part of me I generally do not allow anyone into. Please purchase your copy and support this second endeavor of mine.

As for Book 1 of the Davenports, Amazon is predicting it should be ready around June 21st. In the meantime, Nicky W. is looking for a new LOCAL printer since we had a very bad experience with the New York-based one.

Enjoy Mara Prose Monday and thank you for all the love, support and most of all your continued patience with the trials and tribulations of the Davenports! I promise it will be well worth the wait!!

Dwayne Jones – Digital Artist
www.spoylerz.com

Dwayne is a rare combination of discipline, dedication, and self-education in regards to his artistry.  He began his career as a fun past time, practiced in stolen moments of free time from his growing personal training business.   With more and more demands for his digital artwork, Dwayne knew he had another business in the making.  He finds inspiration in his everyday life and spends countless hours perfecting his craft.  His art is unique and he enjoys delaying the gratification of each piece by waiting a few days after a project is completed before releasing it to the public.  The pieces that do make it to the public eye are ones Dwayne wholeheartedly believes in and only ones that prove eye-catching.  This method obviously works since it was one of his designs that initially caught the Art eye of Mara Prose in a Facebook group.

If you have any interest in purchasing his stellar work, please visit his website to submit your request.  Thank you, Dwayne, for being a part of Prosey’s Corner!  We love your talent!

Lane Lovegrove

IMDb: Actor Lane Lovegrove

Actor Lane Lovegrove is a jack of many trades – but his biggest passion in life is being a father.  This is probably why he gravitates more towards the “Dad” roles and has been able to make a successful acting career.  Residing near Charlotte, North Carolina, Lane began to pursue acting in his mid-thirties.  Once he decided to treat it more as a business opportunity, he began to book several commercials, movies, and tv shows.

Lane has been fortunate enough to work with Channing Tatum, with the cast of Homeland and on the hit tv series Banshee.  When he has spare time, he enjoys mentoring other actors and encouraging them to pursue their goals in the industry.  In the very near future, he plans to start his own blog specifically for fathers.

With an indie film and a new episode on Investigation Discovery, called Silencer, Lane continues to pave his own way towards success.  We enjoyed having Lane on Prosey’s Corner and we cannot wait to have him back on the show very soon.

Until next time,

Mara Prose

Wakanda Forever!

*Keeping this brief until the movie has been out a little longer.*

I was fortunate to be able to see the “Black Panther” movie the very first opening night.  This movie is so captivating from beginning to end.  It is so much more than simply a superhero movie, it delivers so many messages, ideals and traditions.  It is not only shattering movie records, it is shattering negative stereotypes.  I will not go into a lot of detail about the movie’s premise because I feel everyone needs to see the movie for themselves and form their own opinion.  However, I will discuss the messages I derived from the movie.

First, let me state how proud this movie has made me.  It was refreshing to see our black community depicted in such an elegant and regal manner.  The movie managed to entertain while educating without preaching; and that is a rare achievement.  The overall message to me is about Unity – unity in our community , unity between our black men and women and unity among different races.

There was honestly so much I wanted to say but with the movie being so newly released, I did not know how to say it all without giving spoilers (enough reviews have already done that).  So let me just pay homage by sending a clear message to Hollywood – “All you have to do is look at the opening weekend numbers, and you will clearly see we are starved for my diversity in our movies.”

I will follow up with an additional blog to really dive into this movie after a couple of weeks have passed.
