Love Won't Let Me Be Silent
*Nominated for Several National Literary Awards*
Terry Angel Mason, the African-American author who is rapidly becoming internationally acclaimed, is highly regarded for his ability to overcome adversity. Many would go so far as to say Mason is a Maverick of an angel since his life reads like an excerpt from Tony Kushner's Angels in America. He has a momentous quest, having overcome two life threatening-illnesses. Mason’s thought-provoking articles, life-changing stories, and sensual romantic poetry about the Black gay experience touches and inspires millions of lives worldwide as is evidenced by the numerous distributors who carry his much sought-after literary masterpiece, LOVE WON’T LET ME BE SILENT.
Mason’s new book is proving to be tremendously appealing to men and women of all ages and ethnicities in every country at a record pace, garnering international attention, recognition, and media acclaim; defying geographical boundaries, overcoming language barriers (appealing to more than just the gay community), and crossing over into the broader heterosexual community in ways that few authors have been able to do -- and is particularly popular with women!
Love Won't Let Me Be Silent is a collection of writings, short stories, and poems that falls into several categories, including gay and lesbian fiction and non-fiction, African American fiction and non-fiction, and urban fiction.
Perhaps one of the reasons that Mason is experiencing tremendous success is because of his unique creative way of crafting poetic stories that show readers a more positive perspective of same-gender-loving people. Additionally, many credit Mason with opening up a whole new dialogue about sexuality and same-gender-loving relationships within the Black community, specifically within the Black Church. Gay activists and Civil Rights leaders often applaud his seemingly unending humanitarian efforts and ferocious courage, believing that perhaps one day his efforts will lead to the demise of the much despised “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in many religious circles; enhance understanding of the LGBT community, and/or at the least, soften the hearts of family members and clergy who may be opposed to a gay lifestyle.
America has barely smoothed its feathers -- ruffled badly last year by the California Supreme Court's initial decision to lift the ban on gay marriage, followed by a divisive election that reversed the decision and placed the matter again before the California Supreme Court for repeal. These chilling events led to an epiphany that compelled him to write Love Won't Let Me Be Silent. These electrifying writings are destined to make him one of the foremost voices of the African-American gay experience. We have no doubt that the artistry and enduring vision that Mason demonstrates in this inspiring book will cause a revolutionary awakening in America and the world and continue to influence our culture, reshape our thinking, and touch our hearts and lives for decades.

A note from the author:
This book is perfect for that mother or father who has a gay son, daughter, or relative and does not know how to embrace a person living a lifestyle that they were told will definitely damn him or her to an eternity without the Creator, and they need answers. Since thousands of people worldwide must face the fact each day that they are attracted to someone of the same gender, it is often difficult for them to find inner peace and resolution to the pain and conflicts raging in the depths of their souls. This book provides those answers and much more! The insight contained within these pages already has a proven reputation of saving the lives of thousands of teens who are in the throes of life and ready to end it all.
For those who have made it successfully through this perilous process and have accepted who they are but still wrestle with the question of why they are not able to find that perfect fulfilling love relationship that they have dreamed of all their lives, this book will show them how to do it and how to maintain it once they find it — something the whole world wants to know!
Another pressing matter that our country faces today is whether or not gay rights is in fact a Civil Rights issue, and if Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have supported gay rights. This revolutionary book proves that injustice, prejudice, and any form of discrimination is something that not only was inconsistent with King's vision and beliefs but is also something that he was adamantly opposed to.
Now I invite you to discover the life-changing principles drawn forth from my life experiences and Divine inspiration contained within the pages of this book; but hold on to your seat because the contents will not only thrill and enlighten you but bless you beyond measure!
