An ongoing student of life, I believe that the pen is a powerful tool that can be used to touch people’s lives all over the world. I enjoy writing about the human spirit and all its raw, yet beautiful intricacies and how it relates to others during this journey called life. Having studied human behavior for many years, I enjoy writing about humanity’s ability to connect with God and his fellow man during life’s triumphs and tragedies. Oh yeah, and I love writing, painting, traveling, learning new things, counseling and encouraging people, as well as creating new majestic experiences with my handsome husband.

IndieWritersReview Welcomes The Big Wide Calm by Rich Marcello (Video Reader Review) Maverick Promotions

Guys I’m very excited that today IndieWritersReview is hosting The Big Wide Calm by Author Rich Marcello!

On Tour November 17th-21st

Author Rich Marcello 


a fun plus 101

If Rich Marcello could choose only one creative mentor, he’d give the role to Jonathan Richmond and the Modern Lovers. This is not only because he currently resides in New England, where Jonathan started, but because of his life as a contemporary fiction author, poet and songwriter, whose literary inspiration often stems from songs he’s written. Rich grew up in New Jersey surrounded by song and word.

For a while it seemed right to travel the musician’s path, especially during his stint in his college folk group, at The University of Notre Dame, where he wrote and recorded his first original songs. But, as is true for many musicians, graduation led him down a different road, one on which he found his love for high technology. There, he enjoyed a successful career as a technology executive, managing several multi-billion dollar businesses for Fortune 500 companies.

During his time in technology he never stopped creating art, and eventually his love for song and the written word grew to the point where he walked away from his first career to pursue poetry, song, and fiction with the same enthusiasm and discipline he demonstrated in business. In The Color Of Home, his literary voice melds all three together with honest generative dialogue, poetic sensory detail, and “unforgettable characters who seem to know the complete song catalog of Lennon or Cohen.”

He’s currently working on his third novel, The Beauty of the Fall.

Paige is a rock star. The world just doesn’t know it yet. She’s got the charisma, the drive, and, of course, the mega-musical skills. All she needs is to make her debut album, one that will change the world, inspire revolutions–and make her galactically famous along the way.

When John Bustin, a former semi-famous singer/songwriter offers to record Paige’s album for free, it feels like destiny, like the next step on her way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Guitar in hand, Paige sets off to John’s recording compound, ready to unfold her future.

But the ever-elusive John, with his mysterious history, and Paige, a big dreamer but naive about her footing in life, clash as much as they coalesce. Before they can change the world through Paige’s music, the improbable duo must learn to work together.

A coming of age story and retrospective, The Big Wide Calm focuses on human nature and the complexities of love through the eyes of young and old on the journey of creating the perfect album.

IndieWritersReview’s Music Monday Spotlight! Music and Record Producer ManKNEE (14th IMA’s Awards)

Happy Monday all, today I have another great spotlight for you! Take a look at Discover Artist for the 14th IMAs: ManKNEE! Listen to


a fun plus 101

Music & Record Producer for Recording Artists, TV and Film


Discover Artists That Joined The 14th IMAs: manKNEE



Artist Name: manKNEE (pronounced Manny) Home Base: Orlando, FL Genres: Singer/Songwriter, Pop Categories Entered: Adult Contemporary, Pop, Contemporary Christian Title of Work Submitted: Before The Curtain Falls Label: Self-Released Producer: Brian Steckler and myself What’s the story behind your artist name?: The artist name is a play-on-words taken from my first name, Manny.

Describe your sound: An eclectic fusion of singer/songwriter and pop influences. My style is non-conforming, unique, lyric driven with smooth and unpretentious vocals.

What’s your favorite press quote about your music?: Every so often, an artist comes along with a style so discernibly different, we are forced to reevaluate established musical boundaries.

The song or songs that changed your life and why: “You Found Me” by The Fray. When I first started writing songs, I always attempted to capture the raw emotion that is the hallmark of ‘You Found Me’. It resonates with me because if we are all honest, life is friggin hard most if not all the time. Rare is the song that can capture everything we all want to say but don’t know how. Often times, as artists, we tend to shy away from the difficult topics and instead revert to writing catchy hooks.  I believe the world is full of people who are looking for songs they can claim as their personal anthem. That’s my modus operandi. To write songs that serve as a parachute for the soul. Describe the first time you walked onstage: I won’t lie. I think I needed to change my boxers if you know what I mean. At the same time, I finally felt like I found my way back ‘home’. My pilgrimage had ended and begun all at the same time. The prodigal son returning to his roots.

Why did you submit to this year’s Independent Music Awards?: Although I’m not arrogant enough to  believe my songs will bring about world peace, I do believe I have something to say and share with the masses. I’ve always felt that if I don’t share what’s inside, I will burst at the seams. I’m submitting to this year’s IMA’s because it provides independent artists the best possible vehicle and platform to get the message out. If you win and/or get nominated, how will you use your IMA honor to further your career?: There is much prestige with getting nominated and/or winning. I would leverage the full weight of my nomination/award to promote the IMA brand on my social media accounts, artist website, live events, touring and interviews. I would use it as a springboard to launch my second album release and demonstrate the effectiveness of aligning with IMA as an independent artist.

Who is your musical hero & what would you like to learn from them?: Honestly, my heroes are all the independent artists who continue to pursue their dream for the love of their craft and not the promise of a contract. These individuals have taught me that this journey will never end in disappointment because at the end of the day, we will always have our music. Anything else that happens is icing on the cake. (Don’t’ get me wrong, I like icing very much!) Where can fans follow you/purchase your music?: My music can be downloaded from all major digital outlets including iTunes and Amazon. Physical purchases are available on Amazon as well.  Fans can visit my website and find links to all of my social media sites. – See more at:
