The Imprint: In The Situation Room with Michelle Cuttino and Elissa Gabrielle

Here’s the situation… After ten years of growing her writing, broadcasting, and Peace In The Storm Publishing empire, Elissa Gabrielle launched three new imprints as well as several other entertainment ventures on July 1.

The three imprints are After the Storm Publishing, LLC, a faith-based division which will be headed by publisher Sharel E. Gordon-Love; Jessica A. Robinson Presents, a contemporary drama division headed by the singer, songwriter and author Jessica A. Robinson; and Imani Faith Publishing, an imprint headed by Cheryl Lacey Donovan that will boast inspirational titles featuring “life-changing testimonies of triumph over adversity.”

Born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, Sharel E. Gordon-Love started writing at the age of six, winning immediate recognition for her essays and short stories. Her first nonfiction work, “Is There Hope for the Black Male?” was published by Black Child Magazine in 1994. Certified in Microcomputer Technology and Business Administration, Ms. Gordon-Love graduated from Berkeley College of Business in 1993. She is currently a student at Kaplan University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. A licensed evangelist in the Church of God in Christ, Sharel and her family attend New Reid Temple C.O.G.I.C. in East Orange, New Jersey. There she serves on the Administrative staff, Youth Department, and Women’s Department ministries.


“After the Storm, the place that we would all rather find ourselves, only comes when we have been through a storm. Here you will find stories that will inspire, uplift, and encourage through the literary work by new and established authors. Our stor tellers share their life’s journey or depiction of life through fiction. Storm clouds may rise, the billows may roll, and the tempest may feel like more than you can handle until you, ‘Go through to get through…the storm.’”

– Sharel E. Grodon-Love

Robinson likes to create stories and situations that readers can relate to. Since the publication of her debut novel, Robinson has won several literary awards and has been featured on Black Expressions’ Top 100 Bestseller List.
