Book Update:  I have changed courses in regards to my book. Yes, I was offered a publishing contract. After careful consideration, I have chosen to decline the offer. Maybe it was foolish of me given the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to Self-Publishing. It just didn’t seem like the publisher took my story as serious as it calls for. This isn’t your typical urban fiction. It speaks a very necessary message during these tough times. Not to mention the enormous courage and strength coming from a disabled person.  I prayed on it and feel as though if it is meant to be, it will be. Now yes I did put the 1st part of the book out myself and received a few amazing reviews. Soooo I added more content and this re-release is gonna be awesome. So yea that’s the update. I will continue to keep you guys poted on the progress.  Here is a brief description along with the Synopsis and the revised cover.  Let me know what you all think. I appreciate any and all feedback.  Much thanks!!
