My Courage to Tell

My Courage to Tell
My Courage to Tell is the story of one woman’s struggle to overcome a childhood of abuse at the hands of her cruel, bullying brother. Memories of this abuse remain deeply buried until an Aunt dies in Manhattan, leaving an estate Laura Corbeth must settle with her estranged brother. As she tries to administer the estate, Laura is plagued by symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Suppressed memories start to rise to the surface.

Laura begins to remember, and to face, a childhood of psychological and physical abuse. No cuts. No bruises. No scratches. Her brother was sly, constraining her to spit in her face, lick her or perform tickle torture. He took pleasure in dominating her and playing on her fears – relishing his control over his younger sibling. His lies and manipulations terrified her. Witnessing his torture of animals, left no doubt in Laura’s mind that her tormentor would follow through on his threat that he would kill her if she told.

And, where were her parents? Rather than investigating Laura’s deteriorating situation, they believed their son’s continuous lies as he denied his abuse of Laura. When they did catch glimpses of their son’s cruelty, they put it down to sibling rivalry.

Travel with Laura as she uncovers her past, finds the help and courage to face that past and ultimately confronts her abuser and her family. $0.99 on Kindle.

True Course: Lessons From a Life Aloft

True Course: Lessons From a Life Aloft

From award-winning, best-selling author Brigid Johnson comes the tale of how one woman’s life in the sky forged an unforgettable destiny. Raised in a small factory town in the 1960s, when aviation was predominantly a male profession, with parents who didn’t support her ambitions, Brigid nevertheless learned to fly. Hers was a busy life of setting limits and learning philosophies of growth and risk well beyond her years, even as she juggled two jobs, college, and a rescue Siberian husky whose wandering spirit put her own to shame. From first solo to an airline career, and finally a decision to hang up her wings for another profession when her elderly father needed her care, Brigid captures with understanding, humor, and grace the moments that change the path of our lives. With lyrical expression of her love for flight, she writes old and new stories of family, adventure, and the thrill of taking to the sky. True Course is more than a memoir or a story of the lure of aviation—it’s a story of learning to let the spirit soar and unfurling the wings of personal freedom, an inspiration to adventurers everywhere. $0.99 on Kindle.

About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me

About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me

Having lived with his grandparents and uncles will delve his inborn wisdom and the sense of humanity’s protection in priority. In this title “About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me: Worthy Advice for Future Generations” the author unrolls his literary style as deep, derider and sober. He practices somehow the accuracy of words that he calls mathematics of words.

Narcisse Nguema observed the man’s and the woman’s misbehaviors and started to heed his grandmother’s anecdotal concerns and alerts: The Black societies need to target their requirements for a stronger community. Black people need to change to recover their authenticity and better build wealth and their lives at first. The refusal of corruption of minds from white and yellow people along with the appetite for the easiness, regarding women and young people, is the second frame of this project.

After having committed “Proven Mother’s Heart” in French, written as He was 22 years-old, Narcisse Nguema found lots to say about women. But He couldn’t add independent and free thoughts in that first complete novel written in scenography, and still unshared to the public. He figures out that black folks are in severe harmful danger of all aspects. To fix that state of things, the black woman’s standards of education and behavior must be reset to re-empower the black communities, wherever they are — according to the ancestry insight and to the natural growth of the society, they live at. $5.99 on Kindle.

The Path of Leashed Resistance: The Buddy System

The Path of Leashed Resistance: The Buddy System
This book is a hilarious and heartwarming look into the life of a remarkable family that fell into canine rescue completely by accident, but now lives to protect and care for their dogs absolutely on purpose. An awe-inspiring read for anyone who loves dogs!

When Robert and Beth Hading-Yostlot rescued Buddy Lee, they had no idea what they had started. How one dog would spark such compassion in them for abused and abandoned animals. But that spark turned into a blazing fire that burned brighter and hotter than they could have ever imagined.

Fueled by destroyed furniture, food follies, bizarre accidents, and near death experiences, the fire spread to every corner of their lives.

They experienced both the pleasure of seeing damaged dogs be healed by the courage of a loving family and the love of other amazing dogs, as well as the hardships of having to make such great sacrifices to give them what they needed to grow in strength and joy. They also experienced the triumph of watching a dog’s spirit be lit up by life, along with agony when it was extinguished by death.

Beth Hading-Yostlot gives us a glimpse into their adventures, their pragmatic existence, and explains why forty-plus dogs later, they’re still living a life devoted to canine rescue and what it means to live by the Buddy System. The only thing she can’t predict, is who’s going to need their help next. $0.99 on Kindle.
