Book Reviews

The Importance of a Review

As a READER, I myself never left a REVIEW.  Now, as an AUTHOR, I understand the importance and VALUE of the review system.  Sometimes people look at your reviews and when they see that there are only a FEW they think that your book must not be very GOOD or that no one is BUYING it.  That is NOT always the case.  Most people do not a LEAVE review.  I read somewhere that you are LUCKY if 1 out of every 100 readers will leave a review.  Well, to get to my POINT, if you have read any of my BOOKS I would so, so, so, much APPRECIATE a review!  My books have been SELLING, and if you have read my books you know where I coming from, and what I have been THROUGH. I am not a college GRADUATE with a degree la-de-da galore.  I am an EX-JUNKIE just trying to tell my STORY about overcoming ADDICTION and ADVERSITY.  I want to show the WORLD that anything is possible.  I was a hardcore DOPE-FIEND for most of my life and I want to help INSPIRE others to CHANGE.  I want to EDUCATE the family members and friends of an ADDICT.  I want to show EVERYONE that it is not as easy as "JUST SAYING NO!"  I want to share my STORY in order to help others AVOID the pain and loss that I have endured.  I am trying to make up for LOST time now, and sometimes I get so EXHAUSTED.  I have FAITH in the LORD above.  I give EVERYTHING up to Him. I am accepting his GUIDANCE although sometimes things do not ROLL as smoothly as I would like them to.  I have to honestly say that ANYTHING that could possibly happen to me NOW, would be BETTER than what I have been through in the PAST.  I want to HELP you understand the ADDICT a bit more so YOU will have an IDEA on how to HELP them.  In return, I ASK for your help.  PLEASE leave a REVIEW.  YOU just do not know how much IT will be appreciated. I am an INDIE author with all ODDS against me, but SURPRISINGLY my NUMBERS are getting closer to the TOP! I am learning as I go, and I PROMISE you that BOOK 6 will be THE ONE TO READ!  I read article after article and take class after class to better meyself and gain more knowledge in the writing process. I have also been STUDYING up on audio recording and PLAN on recording the LAST book of the SWEET MELISSA MEMOIR SERIES myself! I may NARRATE the others as well, as I BELIEVE the TONATION will be AUTHENTIC! As always,  Love, Peace, and Happiness to all!

Time for Me

I have been working far too many hours each day.  I don’t want to fall off track or get even further behind schedule, but every once in a while I feel like I need to take some “ME TIME” and walk away from my office and studio.  It’s funny and I feel almost hypocritical because I tell myself that stepping away from work for a while will be good for me, but I really enjoy my work.  There really isn’t anything else that I would rather be doing. Whenever I try to mix it up and do something so-called nonproductive, I am just not satisfied and I head right back to work. So, I guess after all these years of trying to figure out who I am and what I want to do with my life, I have finally found that my greatest passion is in writing and playing music, exactly what I do for a living!

The American Opioid Epidemic and Mental Illness

Someone Like Me-Is there a connection between addiction and mental illness? I say there is! Some people say that addiction is a choice, but I know for a fact that it’s not. Mental illness plays a big part in a persons decision making process and lifestyle choices. I am now in the middle of writing my 7th book and I will explain in detail how my chemically imbalanced mind thinks and reacts.  Well, at least how mine did before treatment
anyway! Sure, I am no pro and I am not a doctor, but I have a genuine real life experience and a story to tell. I hope that you will open your mind to the possibility, or shall I say the reality, that addiction is indeed a disease and not a choice.
