KL, your book "From Gigolo to Jesus" is an awesome book that shows your transition from boy to man. This book not only represents you, but other young men who shared similiar characteristics growing up and have now realized the errors of their ways. Your confessions and honesty had me reading page after page and feeling proud of your full 360 degree turnaround into the educated black male professional that you are now. Every adolescent black male in any community should be armed with this book. Well done classmate, well done.

Less than 2 years ago, I was in a dormant place creatively. I was a poet eager to share my words with the world; but due to previous nightmares with other publishers and hearing similar stories told by other hopeful authors; I was hesitant.
Then God placed Bravin Publishing directly in my path. After getting to know me and taking the time to listen to me, Bravin Publishing accepted my manuscript and in 2011 I became a published author.Impressions of A Poet, Footnotes of my Journey is my first book of poetry and I am humbled by the way Bravin has treated me as an author, client and poet. I am so impressed with the service, love and professionalism that it is easy for me to refer other writers to Bravin.
Such referrals led to me becoming a 2 time published author in less than 1 year. It is an honor to be a part of the anthology WORDPLAY, OUR WORDS ARE OUR CANVAS published by Bravin Publishing. I am in the company of some of the most profound poets of today. I've shared stages with ALL of them and knew a compilation of our talents could only result in what is a phenomenal menu of food for thought. Bravin's special touch makes it DELECTABLE!
To Tiffany and K.L Belvin, thank you for all that you do. You apply a certain kind of passion to your service and that makes you stand out in the publishing world. I am blessed to be a part of the Bravin family.

This was my first experience being a published author, and I must say that Bravin Publishing has made it a wonderful experience. I've been told I have a lot to say and Bravin has given me and members of my team an outlet to say. They have supported their authors and push books. I am a proud member of the Bravin family.

I just want to show love and support for the brother who has shown his love and support for the poets and publishing of "Word Play." The collection of works are as vibrant and varying as the poets included all brought to you by K.L. Bravin. Thank you for your effort and dedication to our project and look forward to continue working with you on this and more in the future.

It's been a long time coming, the journey is not over; we've still got a lot of work to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has been a roller coaster, not like a Kingda Kong but more like a backstage pass to an experience that only poets experience. Wordplay is the equivalent of what a musician's album is, but with more stanzas. KL has provided artists in this book collective their own seperate lane to further initiate their presence and be heard in many different circles on many different levels, touching lives with each poem at a time. The company in a lot of ways has really changed my thinking on business and being business minded. Being conscious of what information I put out on facebook, my dialouge amongst people for the first time that potentially may want to do business with me and how I carry myself especially when people are watching me and I am unaware of it. Overall, I've grown in plenty ways and appreciate Bravin Publishing for guiding me as a young author and the youngest of the wordplay anthology.

My Brother Belvin-there are not enough words to express my gratitude for your profound message to the Black History program yesterday@Rochale Village. The profound message still reigns because it was sanction by God. In everything we do we must allow God be the head leader. The song says where He leads me I will follow. Thank you for coming again and may God continue to reign on you and (Tiffany(you were miss xoxo) with an abundance in everything. Much love....

Honestly said, I don't think you can do anything to fend off the attacks. I don't think you got attacked because of something you did, but because lots of people admire you and your work. That's apparently enough for some people to hate you. Only by unpassionating your readers, can you hope to actually stop the haters. I hope you will reject that option.

From Gigolo to Jesus is a great testimony of God's amazing love and His abundant blessings, not to mention His forgiveness of our sins. It shows that even when we think of ourselves as unworthy of His love, He still knows our purpose. And if we're open to change and submit to God's will, He will use us as vessels. Tiff & KL are also phenomenal proof that the black family can survive; that marriage is not just a status but an evolving job; that if God is not intricately involved, there are so many things prepared to destroy it. I read the book TWICE and my eyes have been opened to mistakes I've made in past relationships, it helped me to identify some of my weaknesses I had not seen as such. So thank you KL for being honest and open and using your life as a testimony about God's work! May you both be forever blessed!

FIRST WE MUST GIVE HONOR TO GOD, FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS COME FORTH. IT IS TRULY A BLESSING THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER BLINDED KEITH. YOU ARE A FINE EXAMPLE OF TRANSITION AND YOUR PURPOSE, YOUNG MAN, IS TO SPREAD THE WORD. I AM SO HONORED TO HAVE BEEN A PIECE IN YOUR PUZZLE, TO HAVE KNOWN YOU FOR THE MAN YOU WERE AND THE MAN YOU ARE TODAY. I REMEMBER WHEN WE FIRST MET, I SAID TO MY SISTER "HE REALLY THINKS HE GOT GAME, BUT I WONDER DOES HE KNOW WHO MANUFACTURED THE GAME HE IS PLAYING?" BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO SEE YOUR GAME THEN, I DECIDED TO CHANGE THE WAY THE GAME WILL BE PLAYED AND SHOWED YOU HOW TO BE A FRIEND INSTEAD OF A LOVER. I MUST SAY, YOU PLAYED ALONG VERY WELL. OUR RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPED INTO THE PERFECT BIG BROTHER, LITTLE SISTER RELATIONSHIP AND I CHERISH IT TO THIS DAY. THIS BOOK IS SPECIAL. IT IS SO POWERFUL THAT IS MUST BE A TOOL TO BE USED AND SHARED AMONGST OUR YOUTH OF TOMORROW AND FOR THE MANY LOST ONES OF TODAY. IT WILL GIVE THEM A SIMPLE UNDERSTANDING OF SOME OF LIFE'S TOUGHEST BATTLES THEY MAY HAVE TO FIGHT AND ONE OF THOSE BATTLES WILL BE THE BATTLE THEY WILL HAVE WITH THEIR SELVES. READING THIS BOOK HAS REFRESHED MY FAITH IN THE MEN OF TODAY. IT MAKES ME FEEL THAT THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR TRANSITION FOR THEM. KEITH, KEEP WRITING, KEEP TALKING, AND KEEP PRAYING FOR A CHANGE BECAUSE OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS ARE DEPENDING ON YOU AND YOUR WORD. I LOVE YOU AND YOU WILL FOREVER REMAIN IN PRAYER....
TO MRS. BELVIN: YOU ARE THE KIND OF WOMAN THAT IS HIDDEN IN MANY WOMEN. IT TAKES A WOMAN OF VALOR TO DELIVER A MAN FROM SATAN'S GRASP. I LOVE YOU FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE. I LOVE YOU FOR BEING MY SISTER IN CHRIST AND I THANK YOU FOR NOT GIVING UP ON KEITH WHEN YOU COULD HAVE, AND PROBABLY WANTED TO. WHEN I LOOK AT YOU I SEE ME...I SEE A WOMAN WITH A DRIVEN PURPOSE TO MAKE RIGHT, SO MANY WRONGS. PLEASE CONTINUE TO ALLOW YOUR LIGHT TO SHINE AS BRIGHTLY AS IT DOES. BLESSINGS TO YOU BOTH!
TO THE READERS: IF YOU DON'T PURCHASE THIS BOOK, AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TEACHINGS IN IT, YOU TRULY ARE MISSING OUT ON CLEAR, SIMPLE UNDERSTANDING. LIFE IS NOT MEANT TO BE LIVED SO HARD AND KL BELVIN HAS LAID IT OUT IN ITS MOST SIMPLEST OF TERMS, HOW TRANSITION CAN HAPPEN FOR ANYONE.

You want a Real, Open, Straight to the Point no Chaser Book to Read??? Then You Definately Need to Check out From Gigolo to Jesus By Author KL Belvin...The Title alone spoke volumes to me personally...But when I had the book in my hand, and began reading..I could NOT put it down..Literally, every chance I got I had to keep reading. While reading some of the things he shared actually brought tears to my eyes, as well made my jaw drop. In this Book KL Truly shows you the life he Lived, and the impact that it had on alot of people that were in his life. After reading I had to personally Call him..I thanked him for being so OPEN about Everything that he went through. Its not always easy for people to share every aspect of what their life was like..some have a tendency to want to paint the picture in a better light. But in this book KL shared the good, the bad, the ugly and the REAL ugly..This book is guaranteed to help others, even if you necessarily have not been through some of the same issues, it will OPEN your Eyes and MIND to make CHANGES in your LIFE...So do yourself a Favor and Invest in this book, and tell your friends and loved ones about it as well!!!

Your candid, and honest telling of your story is not only a tool of deliverance for men who read this book, but for the women have shared lives with men such as yourself. I finished the book with hope and faith that people can in fact, really be changed by God's love and power, and that there is nothing we have to hold on to or hide when we give our whole selves to Hi. God Bless you.
