Starting Your Own Publishing Company

The best thing that any author (especially if you've written several books like me) can do is to establish his or her own publishing company (whether self-publishing or traditional publishing). That way, you'll be in total control of your creativity and earnings. Of course, you'll make far more money as a publisher and author.

The Different Faces Of An Abuser by Alberta Parish



Perpetuators of abuse often never change even as they grow older. Someone who was verbally abusive twenty years ago is still verbally abusive today.

"God is a loving God, a forgiving God. He hears my cries." Shantel looked Ken in the eye. Her crying had caused her nostrils to practically close.



"Yeah, sure He does," he said,… Continue

He reached into his pants pocket and pulled out her car keys, then angrily threw them at her. She bent down and picked them up. She ordered him to his feet. Again, he didn't move. "If you don't get your azz up right now, I promise you, I'm gon' crack that head!" Her fury was apparent.
