Elijah's First Book - Ambition In The Face Of Darkness

Put Action to Aspiration!

I wanted to write a book. So I did... and I wrote it in 30(ish) days!

My book is called, "Ambition In The Face Of Darkness - What it's like being young, black, and poor in America"

This is a deep dive into my background and mindset as I try to determine what has lead me here today. I wrote this book as a way of documenting my current thoughts and feelings during one of the hardest parts of my life so far (as of August 2017).

I am not very happy, financially stable, skilled, or influential at this time. But I will be. So if you're at all interested in what it's like living in poverty, what it's like being black, or even the mindset of a 'millennial'.. than perhaps this is for you.

If you're wondering about people who dream huge dreams, this is Definitely for you!

Eventually, I'll have an 'official' version out in print, probably for the 3rd edition that you can order off of Amazon or whatever. Until then, feel free to pick this up for ANY price (including free).

Right now, I consider this the extremely rough, mostly unedited, and super rare First and Second Edition copies. This is the 'manuscript' people will only talk about in legends years from now.


My brother did the art. It's pretty dope innit? Check him out here: https://www.instagram.com/eclipse_claude/


For those that know me; yes, I will be detailing how and why I plan to invent hovercars, supercities, starships, frontier the next internet, and at least a dozen more epic ideas! But I also will finally be sharing my inner thoughts and feelings that I almost never share. Stories about my anger at the world, my depression, being homeless... I'm telling it all!


Thank you so very much for even coming here, and especially for buying my book before it's even out. I am so very excited to tell my story and hopefully inspire more ambitious people to keep going and never stop trying to do the 'impossible!'

Remember: The Universe/Fortune/God begins to work for you only when you begin to work for yourself.
