This is Olivia Gatwood’s New American Best Friend meets Silver RavenWolf’s To Stir a Magick Cauldron, casting and conjuring female empowerment with the talons of... more

by Catherine PoseyLife is full of challenges, troubles, heartaches, and fears—but there is no reason for us to endure bearing these burdens on our own. Not only did Jesus Christ die for our sins—so we may have everlasting life with Him—but He desires that we follow Him, so that we can hear His voice. When life gets hard, we have a Shepherd, our Saviour Jesus Christ, who gives us comfort. When we don't know which direction to turn, He guides us down the right path. When we feel weak and overwhelmed, He strengthens... more

by Melodie YvonneNot a lot of people know that I ran away from home at 16. And I never went back. Some days I don’t know how I’ve made it this far... and then I remember maybe I haven’t made it. It’s been a very long life, and I’ve lived through and done some rough things that I’d never wish on anyone. I’m lucky the people I hurt have been able to forgive me, and that through it all I’m not dead. This is a project that looks back on the time I spent living on the streets from town to town and place to place as w... more

by Elie AzarThis book is for all the people who found themselves unable to share their emotional burdens with the people they care about. To the people that weren’t able to give justice to their feelings, and to the fire running through their veins. To the ones that got so insecure, that the words of those around them became the bricks of the walls they built around themselves. I hope my book will make anyone who reads it feel less alone, less isolated and okay that they are unable to set free the chaos goi... more

Always take the hand and walk to the Light.
by Dominique Webb MALiterary flare passions from the roots of rejuvenation with regeneration as side, which, rather than being supernaturally constituted, shows semantic drift towards a somatic of colloquial derivations. For that brush of jacket collars in the side street you thigh on waste whilst twisting to the pub, for the old bars of money that cool your hips for auditory sprinkles songs drumming the tune of your cognitive motor to transmute chemistry up from your cells. In the dialects and runs from payment ro... more
