Firebrand Publishing Announces the Release of “From Inmate to Purpose” By Akila Gilyard

Atlanta, Georgia – Turning life lessons into meaningful purpose, “From Inmate to Purpose” follows the journey of Akila Gilyard and how she navigated her life growing up in a restrictive church setting, to being incarcerated and forced to take on the role of mother and protector all at such a young age.

Pouring her heart into pages that can serve others with lessons and guidance, Akila has overcome unimaginable challenges that have shaped her to be the successful life coach she is today. The book features a compelling story that can provide someone with the perspective they need when they just don’t feel like enough. Gilyard understands those feelings all too well with her own personal setbacks and challenges.

Without letting her past solely define her future, her book tells a powerful, honest, and inspiring true story of a woman’s journey of pain to prosperity. From being a teen mother to being released from prison and having to make significant sacrifices to live a life of purpose, Akila presents groundbreaking truth of what can happen when you set your sights on internal change for your future. By taking control of her narrative, she leads the way in introducing to the world who she is, who she was, and who she is not. Pushing for those to explore their own inspiration and driving forces, Akila has written this book not only as a self-healing process but also to show others the triumph that awaits when they overcome the obstacles that tried to shut them down. She writes, “By silencing the noise that often plagues our minds, we are capable of creating so much more than we ever thought was possible.”

In collaboration with her personal brand, Akila Gee, she, along with special guest, actor Tyler Lepley will be hosting a book launch event Saturday, May 29th in Atlanta, Georgia. For tickets to the event, visit Eventbrite and for more information on Akila Gee, her book and upcoming events, visit
