"Angel came down from heaven yesterday 
She stayed just long enough to rescue me And she told me a story yesterday 
About the sweet love between The moon and the deep blue sea"

We are stoked...to let you in on a family secret: the publishing launch of a novel, authored by Royal's Mother, entitled "The Window Man" - under the banner of Proud Son Publishing headed by Royal's brother Alton - is underway and available on Amazon in Paperback and Kindle formats! Next stop - NetFlix!? With your support, it's possible. Launched today, February 8, 2021...the fourth anniversary of our beloved Mother's passing. 

Alton's in-depth research of situations and circumstances revealed in the book, coupled with his genealogy tracing abilities and immense will power compelled him to pull off the publishing of this dynamic American story. The events of her story take place in California's Los Angeles/Hollywood, Santa Barbara and San Francisco areas with Beaumont, Texas represented in dramatic fashion as well. 

Below is Alton's description of the effort: 

"I am happy to announce the launch of a book, written by our late mother, about the first seventeen years of her life. It is primarily a memoir, with just a bit of fiction to augment her youthful recollections. Her story is a thrilling, powerful, poignant, yet love-filled story, told with a good measure of humor that will arrest your senses and obtain your attention from start to finish. I assure you that the ending will surely surprise the most avid reader." ~ Alton Edwards, Proud Son Publishing

On the night of her passing, February 8, 2017, we were headed south for a gig at Kulaks in North Hollywood - an Indie Collaborative Pre-Grammy event. Royal had received word of her death from his son Kareem while en route to the airport in San Francisco. We decided to go through with the performance on the 10th and showcase her favorite of Royal's poems called "If In Life" *** 

You can make a huge difference with your review of the first chapter...or the entire 300 page novel! All we ask is you visit the website, download the first chapter or click on the Amazon link to peruse with a look inside or to purchase the novel outright. It's a captivating read!
