Nationwide ( — In a historic feat, 12 women of color are now published authors after completing T.A.L.K. Publishing’s signature program, MyAuthorLab. The 90-day program serves as a creative incubator for individuals who aspire to share their story – raw yet refined.

In an industry where less than 25% of book publishers are people of color, 12 women are blazing an unprecedented trail with their newly published books: 

* Xanadua Agnew, “Oceans of Emotions: Freeing My Inner Voice”

* Maria Fonseca, “ALONE but not Alone: Discovering God’s Light in Dark Places”

* Sheila Gray, “A Quiet Storm: Wounded I Was. Healed I Am”

* Dionne Grayson, “The Making: Trust God to Be the Chairman of Your Boardroom”

* Mary Jackson, “Life is Full of If’s: 101 Things to Consider”

* Clarity Jones, “Diary of a M.A.D. Fat Woman”

* Laneice McGee, “7 Day Journey to Discovering Your Purpose: God’s Vision, My Hands. Partnership with the Divine”

* Emerald Mills, “Rejection Uprooted: 5 Practical Principles for Overcoming Rejection”

* Tina Payne, “Untethered: Personal Journey to Freedom”

* Toni Pharm, “#L.I.F.E.: Living Intentionally Fearless Every Day”

* Yolanda Radford-Sartin, “Persevere & Pursue: Do What is in Your Heart to Do”

* Kimberly Turner, “The Struggle is Over: Transforming and Renewing Your Mind to Live Life Abundantly”

“I created MyAuthorLab as a platform to encourage people to share their respective journeys through a message of healing, hope, and survival,” says JoLanda Rogers, founder & president of T.A.L.K. Publishing. “In a safe and guided environment, we provide mentorship, coaching, prayer, and community to ensure aspiring and experienced writers become published authors in 90 days.”

MyAuthorLab is designed to push beyond the limits of traditional publishing and allow the author to take ownership of their success; every author owns their copyright and receives 100 percent royalties from sales. 

The signature program guides women through a comprehensive strategy assessment to determine readership, or what we refer to as your “perfect reader.” Whether you’re an avid reader or simply in need of inspiration, these books are intentionally created with everyone in mind.

“I am so amazed by the dedication displayed by every woman who embarked on this journey with us and I am excited for the world to receive their labor of love and truth,” Rogers said.
