Writing Again!

Posted on 1 March, 2015 at 23:41 Comments comments (77)

Life has presented me with new insights and new inspiration. I'm happy to inform you that I'm working on the next motivational book, so stay tuned and keep those comments coming. Since my last blog, I got married, I've been writing articles, promoting concerts & events, managing the radio station (WHOV), doing play by play announcing for the HU basketball team and setting up motivational events for the rest of this year. Creative inspiration comes and it goes. For me it's kind like a happy puppy. When you play with it it loves you, and gives love back in double measure. When you don't it's sad and just sits there waiting for your attention. Catch it when it comes. It's waiting for you to come home. It's a wonderful thing. Keep checking back!

Still Traveling & Now On The Speaking Circuit

Posted on 18 October, 2013 at 14:38 Comments comments (112)
Family, It's been a while since I've had a chance to write something here.  I promise to do better. Between running 88.1 WHOV as Station Manager, doing radio broadcast color commentary for Hampton University Football Games ( and soon Basketball), teaching students and exploring other avenues of marketing for "Wisdom From The Jazzman", I haven't had a lot of free time. Today, right now, I do. LOL
Ive got a number of book signings coming up between now and December The first being Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina on October 26th, Richmond (Chesterfield), Virginia  on November 9th and Savannah, Georgia on November 23rd. I hope you spread the word to friend and family in those cities so I can meet them and autograph a copy of the book. It WILL change your life. If you need a motivational speaker for your next event, show, conference or program let me know.  My profile will soon be up on the Morgan James Speakers Bureau website as a new speaker now taking bookings. I'll post the link once I'm done.
In addition to all of that, I'm casually working the sequel to "Wisdom From The Jazzman" as the vibe comes. So for those of you who have asked, there will be a Part 2 (smile). I also did something I've been talking about for years. In case you didn't know I'm also a songwriter and musician. It's been years since I've played my main instrument so I figure I'd go out and buy a new Trumpet after 20 years without one.  Now I'm getting my chops back in shape so I'll be able to sit in on some jam sessions locally. It will be a great stres reliever for me. Everyone should have one.  A stress reliever that is. :)
Other than that, life is just plain good. There are no good days and bad days in my life. Just good days. Thats how I choose to look at it these days. Every day is a good day if you are here to see it. Until next time, stay prayed up and  Follow Me on Twitter @jaylang1.

A New Frontier

Writing a book has been an experience. This journey is a joyous whole new world, a lot of work and a new beginning. Sometimes the journey is tough and new frontiers yet exciting are challenging. But I am determined to see that those who need wisdom and guidance get to read what has been given to me for you. "Wisdom From The Jazzman" is now available everywhere via all platforms. I'm working on the audio book and a video that explains in even more detail what this journey is all about. See you soon at a bookstore near you.  Until the next rendezvous. Roses On Your Pillow.

January Is Finally Here!

Posted on 10 January, 2013 at 7:21 Comments comments (125)
Well Family,
Outside of fighting this terrible flu bug and streph throat for the past few days, so far this has been a focused entrance into the new year for me thus far. Don;'t worry, I'm feeling better than a few days ago. (smile) This flu bug is fierce! After months of anticipation, January 2013 is finally here and "Wisdom From The Jazzman" books are being placed daily in booksellers all over the world and is available on Kindle and Nook as we speak. If your local book store doesn't have it, have them contact Koehler Publishing or Morgan James Publishing to get some in stock. As for those of you who've ordered presale copies with the FREE CD, I'm sending out another batch. You should get yours next week!
If once you get into the read, it moves you or if you would like to comment let me know. If  you would like me to use your quote on my websites and Facebook pages I will. All the support you  give this project is highly appreciate. Book signings? Well we're in the process of setting some up now. If you know of  a place in your city perfect for a reading/signing, please contact me and let me know so my publicity & marketing team can make it happen.
Hello New York City! Listen out for a live interview on WBAI in the very near future on Professor Earl Cal dwell's "Caldwell Chronicles". Stay Tuned! We've Only Just Begun And The Best Is Yet To Come! Happy New Year!

The 1st Books Have Arrived

Posted on 18 November, 2012 at 16:19 Comments comments (138)
Well family it won't be long now before the autographed pre-sale copies are mailed to those of you who ordered them. This week I got a few books for review before ordering the bulk copies for distribution to those of you who supported me with pre-orders. They will soon be on their way to you along with the free Smooth Jazz CD gift for your patience.
Now I've got to get the free Smooth Jazz CD's made, mailing labels, order packaging and more books for delivery to you. As promised it won't be long. We're right on schedule for the public launch January 2013. Thank You Jesus! Thank You All for Your Prayers And Encouragement! 

Books Will Be On The Way Soon From The Printer!

Posted on 30 October, 2012 at 18:02 Comments comments (79)
    I just got the word yesterday as the wind slammed against my house from my publisher John Koehler that my initial offering of "Wisdom From The Jazzman" books will be ready for shipment to me in 10 to 15 days.
    To those of you who were faithful supporters and bought pre-sale copies w/the FREE "Smooth Jazz" CD offer, it won't be long now before you see both in the mail. When you receive your copies I welcome your comments both here and on Facebook! Ya know, it still hasn't hit me yet. Once I have a copy in my hands I guess it will become reality to me.
    The 1st phase of the journey is about to end and the 2nd phase is about to begin! On top of all that I weathered the storm effects of Hurrican Sandy without a scratch. Thank You Jesus!

Patience Has Become My Friend- It Won't Be Long

Posted on 24 October, 2012 at 6:31 Comments comments (104)
Patience has truly become a vurtue these days. If you log on to my Facebook page weekly, you will see all the updates on the pre-sale copy release progress. It has been delayed a bit longer than I expected because we all (the publishers, editors, proof readers, publicist, etc) wanted it to be just right and a true reflection of how I wanted it to be received. Thus taking another extremely close review of the final layout.
Once its out there it's out there and I can't take it back, thus the close attention to detail before release which I am thankful for. Thanks for hanging in there with me on this project. Once I have the exact date that I'll have the pre-sale copies I will post it here on my web page and Facebook. It won't be long now. All of that it done now and it's now on its way to the printer.
