Recording Artist Manafest Debuts as Author

There are some books that might never land on my home bookshelves that nonetheless deserve to be on our store bookshelves. One of those is Fighter by Christian music artist Manafest. Three reasons to carry this book: (1) Supporting Canadian talent, (b) touches on topics of interest to music buyers, (c) would resonate with a demographic out stores desperately want.

Ellen Graf-Martin sent me this publisher summary of the book:

Manafest Fighter Chris GreenwoodEarlier this fall, rock vocalist and three-time JUNO nominee, Chris “Manafest” Greenwood released his first book and personal story, Fighter: Five Keys to Conquering Fear and Reaching Your Dreams. Named after his highest-charted song, Fighter, this book is the story of how Chris conquered his fears and found success in five stages, which he calls the anatomy of a fighter—Courage, Perseverance, Mindset, Discipline and Willpower- the five resources all readers can draw on in order to reach their dreams, no matter what they are.

The book was supported by loyal fans through a fully-funded Pledge Music campaign. As a part of this campaign, Chris is giving back and donating five per cent of the pledges to World Vision.

Chris knows what it’s like to be a fighter.

“Whether it’s family, personal, or professional, it’s been a fight,” shared Greenwood, “I’ve had the willingness to bear pain to get through all this and I’m winning now. Fighter was made to keep bringing a light to people; keep fighting.”

After losing his father to suicide at age five, fear and insecurity took hold of him and Chris found himself with nothing to cling to but a single mom and a childhood dream of moving to California to become a professional skateboarder. Shortly after deciding to pursue a career in professional skateboarding, an injury took his dream away and showed him that God had other plans for his life. At age 18, Chris fell in love with hip-hop music, took a leap of faith and quit his corporate job to join the ranks of Toronto’s underground hip-hop scene, choosing the name “Manafest” as a reflection of his goal to manifest his dreams.

After years of fighting for success in one of the toughest industries in the world, he found himself living in his dream—a three-time JUNO award nominee, three-time Dove award nominee, Top ten Billboard charted rock artist, living in southern California, selling hundreds of thousands of records worldwide.

Fighter is available in Canada from David C. Cook, and in the U.S. from Ingram/Spring Arbor and Send-the-Light. Hardcover. ISBN 9780989160308 $19.99 US.
