BOOK REVIEW 

THE WINNING NUMBERS, A NOVEL

KRIS J. ROBERTS (AUTHOR)

"Roberts debuts with an interracial love story that follows the adventurous life of an aspiring model-turned-wife and mother of twins. Torey Jackson is a tall, beautiful Black girl growing up in an impoverished urban neighborhood in Seattle with her loving, dedicated single mother, Carol. She dreams of becoming a famous model and fashion designer, but she first must get through the realistically portrayed mean-girl melodrama of high school with her best friend, Shorty, and her White star-quarterback boyfriend, Noah Kirkland, who captures her heart despite their personal and familial differences. While Torey comes from a poor childhood of struggle and dysfunction, Noah is the son of a billionaire aeronautics entrepreneur. The love-struck Torey and Noah quickly marry and raise their family in a big house in Seattle. But complications ensue in the form of Noah's marital indiscretions and corporate machinations along with a football tragedy involving a son. The author inexplicably saves a life-altering Deus ex machina for the final pages, which snaps the story to a sudden close and sets the scene for further adventures. Roberts invests the story with good pacing and crisp characterizations as he creatively and entertainingly deals with the challenges of interracial relationships and wealth disparities in a marriage. The chapter headings incorporate the author's illustrations, which add a unique zest and color to each section. Despite the far-too-hasty conclusion of the book, Roberts' enthusiasm is obvious, and the opening pages hook readers, who will be eager to discover what will become of Torey and Noah and whether their love can last. What resonates most over the course of the book is its focus on realizing dreams and making the most (and the best) of any situation."

The world’s only anonymous singer-songwriter, Peter Lake, emerges out of the woods with his EP ‘GREEN’ dedicated to the epic love affair between Blue...

Says Peter Lake: "I will be known as the greatest songwriter of all time. Get on board early! If you're going to climb a mountain, why not Everest?"

The self-proclaimed "Ghost of New York" strikes again with three hit songs that make up his first release of 2023. Peter Lake, the world's only anonymous singer-songwriter, emerged on the scene in the last 24 months with a series of songs that have garnered over 23 million streams on Spotify and 19 million streams on YouTube. Once again, Lake has used his music to create powerful messages to help listeners all around the world find comfort and seek optimism. In his lead single "Sweet Sour Minds" Lake tapped into to his growing fan base and promised to write the song about whatever they decide. The process, which Lake documented on his YouTube channel, led to his writing of "Sweet Sour Minds." Lake reveals the idea that 'We can give anything power by loving it, and if that thing turns on us, it can destroy our spirit. But in the end, after it all settles down, we remain optimistic, somehow it's fine."

The song Crowds is an ode to Lake's favorite collaborator, Charley Drayton, whose unequaled drum beats make the song at once a vehicle for Lake's sometimes mysterious lyrics, as well as a fast-paced anthem that protests against the unfair use of power. Lake comments that "Charley's drums sound different. There is a magic there. I'm so glad he's finished touring with Bob Dylan. I need Charley back."

Perhaps the most unusual element of Lake's latest EP is the song "Comfort's Cross" which seems to contradict Lake's genre of electro pop. In this recent release, Comforts Cross reminds the listener of Lake's premise that music no longer has any genres. The song, a classic ballad that Lake originally wrote as a poem in response to the loss of a loved one and the grieving thereafter, is a naked and visceral emotional response that is led by his voice, and is supported by minimal background music.

Artist Biography:

Peter Lake is a Canadian born, New York City based singer-songwriter who revels in anonymity. In an age where privacy is rare, Peter is convinced that his ability to create music is protected by his anonymity, and by working with unconventional partners in an attempt to avoid the constraints of traditional record deals, which often consider recorded music as a means to promote tours. Peter is the first of a kind: an artist who will only do live concerts via a web-based platform, thereby freeing him to focus exclusively on writing and recording new, original music that crosses all genres. In the process, Peter has assembled one of the largest singer-songwriter catalogues in the industry. His musical influences include Neil Young, Max Martin, David Bowie, Motown, and Drake. It's no surprise that his songs are hard to place, often flying between (and combining) House beats, crunchy guitar riffs and "traditional chants and natural sounds." Lake considers his work as that of starting an avalanche: you don't know which snowflake starts the avalanche, "my job is to make it snow." Through his consistent work over the next decade Lake plans to gradually displace Max Martin as the greatest songwriter who has ever lived.
