Spot Rushing with
Brandon McCalla

by Kaven L. Brown
July 2007

Wait a minute now, before you set out on your next book signing, double check to make sure you've got all the necessary accessories: pens, entourage, bottled water and a point man on the lookout for your favorite neighborhood writer/author Brandon McCalla. Then triple check, making sure your book covers are of a first-rate design and have topnotch concepts. This past weekend Brandon McCalla was on yet another book cover warpath, Spot Rushing! We all know what a Spot Rusher is, don't we? Those that run up in spots and rob others of their goods. The same as running up on a book vendor…

Standing next to a local book vendor on 34th street in Manhattan, New York; passersby and fans alike stood in shock with amazement and laughter. As they watched Brandon break down each and every book in arms length. Reaching and picking up books, flipping through pages, reading and quoting content. Evaluating book covers and jackets of all sorts, dissecting and scanning with a fine-tooth comb. Those that were not fortunate enough to have the better designs got wasted; straight up and down, with not an ounce of remorse.

The Urban Book Source was of course in attendance and captured every moment of it. In a brief statement, Director of Film and Video production at UBS, Ian Miller, said, "Much of the footage will have to be heavily edited and/or censored. We have a tremendous Internet following through our website and don't want to offend any of our authors or readers." In another statement, a reader stated, "To be honest, Brandon is just hitting it right on the nose. I mean some of these book covers are really horrible. Just look at them."Brandon McCalla

In other business, Brandon McCalla is the author of Diamond Drought and Diamond Dynasty of the Diamond series, published by Writer and Poets—the same writer who introduced you to his Literary Hood Blog Column, that generated over 2,000 viewers daily, before it was discontinued—has his latest installment, a highly anticipated and long over due novella entitled Spot Rushers. Which is filled with drama and thrills. The novella chronicles the Fatal Four—four females who seduce and shamelessly rob drug dealers. When a robbery goes wrong, one of the four is murdered; their lives are drastically changed. Three of the remaining women are obligated to other ways of living. Brandon says, "I never write the same book twice." He's always looking to generate something refreshing and innovative. "I'm a writer not an author. A writer is a privilege, an author is a pretty little title that is given to you."

Spot Rushers will be available in bookstores nation wide, published by Augustus Publishing, Inc.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href=""> ;Seo Plugin</a>

I'm not interested in<a href=""> fooabtll</a> No biggy. I liked his method and technique, some really nice shots later on in the film as well, although early on the view switched a little too much for my taste. Another thing I noticed and liked a lot was the fact that she was actually into it, not just outputting some fake ass moans.. That sort of thing is really agitating. Just sucks this guy isn't a little younger, youth is wasted on the young as they say.. lol

Cool site goodluck To all you htears who think this video is lame fuck you. This is what sex ought to be perverse, erotic, and very very expressive. You think this stuff aint real? think again assholes. If i dig a guy enough, (and btw, this guy is hot. i like the super ripped, no fat clean body and his cock size is just perfect!) then i ll do whatever it takes to cum and cum hard. i d lick his thigh, with taunt muscles and suck on his toes, if he keeps em clean and clipped, maybe even finger his butt. and i absolutely love the spit exchange. i love guys who are confident enough to try snowballing. and guess what, most of the times its very masculine men, confident in their sexuality who are willing to try new shit and that is why they get laid more than some of you homophobic cunts. peace.

His own covers are horrible so how can he talk about someone else's. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

It amazes me how he neglects to speak of his own book covers. Spot Rushers cover is the best one actually. The Diamond Series covers leave much to be desired. Oh, I mean the two books that have the word "diamond" in the title...he never released the rest of the series...
