What is the mission you set out to accomplish with your voice in this book?
My purpose statement is, “Happiness through creating things that help people.” I hope this book will continue to inspire great poetic and musical works. I also hope for the Book of Rhymes to be a gateway book that encourages young brothers to read.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything about your latest work?
I would’ve better documented the process and created a playbook that makes it easier for other self-published authors to bring their books to life.

What advice would you give other writers?
Finish. Done is better than perfect. Even bestsellers have errors. You can always fix errors in new editions.
