Hi there readers and fellow authors. I am Willie Tee and I send out newsletters from time to time to keep you informed of the progress I am making in the promotion of my book, The Winds of Destiny, 2nd Edition. I will mention in my newsletter book festivals, speaking engagements and book signings that I attended or will attend in the future. I also inform readers of other fellow authors that I have met and the titles of their books. Importantly, I want to encourage others to become authors, a dream come true, and to provide them guidance on how to become skillful authors.

Subject: Upcoming Events
Well, as always, I am running like a man on fire but in a prosperous way. I find the energy and motivation to do what must be done. Below is my schedule of upcoimg events:
Saturday 12 February 2005 Book Signings
1:00 PM to 5 PM B Dalton Bookstore
Chesterfield Towne Center
6:00 PM to 9 PM Walden Booskstore
Regency Shopping Center
The following are dates or schedules of my special events. I have a B.S. in Criminal Justice and know the concepts of Community Policing, but I feel that acts of community and domestic violence need to be attacked at their roots. There needs to be a movement initiated where victims of violence, neglect and abuse like myself attend and speak at rallies, programs, and workshops that are designed to the community conscience. People need to be reminded of how violence creates burdens and repercussions not only for the victims and offenders but also for their relatives and friends. I thank Minister Patricia Jones-Turner of the Chesterfield County Domestic Violence Unit for hosting the following luncheons and workshops. I agree with Minister Jones-Turner that time is running out and now is the time to encourage people who have strayed from Christian principles and morals to refrain from acts of violence. With the involvement of churches, parents, siblings, friends, and survivors of violent acts, we can initiate a grass roots movement to take the streets back and reduce the violence in our society. We can not depend solely on the police to prevent and reduce the violence. We need to encourage others to begin at home with the positive nuturing of their children and with married couples learning how to respect each other.
Last weekend, I met a Bishop amd a director of a youth detention center. I agreed to speak at detention centers and before church congregations about community and domestic violence. I also promised a soldier that I would attend workshops on a military base(s) to discuss domestic violence. I could discourage some people from participating in violent acts and save myself or someone else from being mugged or robbed during the future. It is not a far fetched concept because wrong doers during the past have been converted to good doers, after others touched their hearts in a positive way. Pass on this newsletter to others and lets touch other's hearts in a positive way. Wishing you all many blessings.

Author to Attend Ministry Workshops (Domestic Violence & Spiritual Warfare)
A Family’s Secret
Midlothian, Virginia – February 7, 2005 – Willie Tee, the author of The Winds of Destiny, will attend a ministry discussion, entitled “Family Secret”. The discussion will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2005 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Short Pump Community Center 11800 W. Broad Street, Richmond,Virginia 23233 (under the food court/look for blue parking lot). There will be a lunch break and the author will attend the afternoon discussion entitled “Spiritual Conflict Begins In the Mind — It’s A Matter of Perception!” from 12:00 p.m. –2:00 p.m. These discussions are free.
The author will discuss his book. It is a true story or memoir about Tee living in rural North Carolina and a tragedy that occurred on his maternal grandparent’s farm during nineteen fifty seven. The tragedy was caused by domestic related violence. The incident would be kept as a secret until Tee, his siblings, and cousins become teenagers. Tee’s book depicts that he is a survivor of the tragedy, which caused a rift between his mother and father’s families. The secret or tragedy brought revenge, an unstable home environment, repercussions, and other burdens to Tee’s family. Tee will explain how he managed family burdens through spiritual healing and enlightenment. Tee will participate in discussions during the afternoon workshop, titled, “Spiritual Conflict Begins In the Mind — It’s All A Matter of Perception!” He will discuss how beliefs in witchcraft and the spiritual world during the nineteen fifties to present influenced his life and the lives of others, despite their Christian beliefs.
Tee’s book encourages others to refrain from behavior and habits that will create domestic and community violence. Tee has given speeches at the James House (Women Shelter) and at a Chapter of the Full Gospel Businessmen Association, International. He has participated in fundraisers for Feed the Children and The Women Breast Cancer Society. Review Willie’s book at www.authorsden.com/willietee.
