PTSD To Freedom - Mental & Spiritual Healing: No More War Within by Linda Diane Wattley

Contributors: William Sumner (Author), Anastasia Young (Editor), Cyrus Webb (Foreword), Martha Cleves (Preface)

When you experience traumatic experiences that alters your emotional and psychological foundation, you begin to experience a very personal and fragile meltdown. While all of this is happening, your body diligently works to save your life. You survived the initial shock, now the aftermath, yes that personal and dreadful aftermath. Now what? "PTSD to Freedom - No More War Within", will tell you to pick up your bed and walk because you are the captain of your ship. Authors Linda Diane Wattley and William Sumner are veterans of the United States Army. They teamed up together to write this extraordinary and unique book because they both have a heart for people suffering with PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It was obvious to them that if the male and female perspectives and resources were joined together that it would have a profound impact on the world. What they offer is powerful because the truths automatically empower the readers. No doubt, the truth will set you free! Keep in mind, PTSD is no respecter of persons; you, me, a child, soldier, parent, friend, spouse, lover, doctor, judge, police officer, neighbor, and even a minster can be suffering with PTSD. The good news is that it does not have to be a life-sentence. "PTSD to Freedom - No More War Within" is about having complete control of your outcome and allowing your greatest self to shine.  

Cold Coffee Review: We owe a debt of gratitude to our United States men and women who serve or have served in our armed forces. This book's contributing authors all served in the United States Army. I am sure that you are familiar with the term PTSD and perhaps it has wreaked havoc on your life or the life of your family member, friend or acquaintance. Are you familiar with the term PTSG or NLP? I encourage you to read this book and glean the information that will help you on your journey out of PTSD and give you tools to help others along their journey. Author Linda Diane Wattley dedicates this book to those of us who face PTSD and fight against the daily war within. Whether your PTSD comes from a traumatic childhood experience, military service, domestic violence, crime or accident inflicted trauma; Author Linda Diane Wattley writes, speaks and interviews from a heart of knowledge and compassion. Linda reaches out and interviews other PTSD victims from her radio podcast show. She gives daily inspiration on her website titled The Truth Will Set You Free. I, Theodocia McLean, endorse this book PTSD To Freedom (No More War Within) by Linda Diane Wattley as a tool in your mental health toolbox to help you recognize and overcome the icy grip of PTSD. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on May 14, 2018.

What makes you proud to be a writer from Akron Ohio? I am writing from Akron, Ohio. What makes me proud to be a writer is the fact I never gave up even though I learned by trial and error to finally self-publish my own book and it comes out amazing! And, my writing is well received by readers and makes a difference in the lives of others.  

What or who inspired you to become a writer? I love writing because the experience is awesome taking the unseen and bringing it into the seen. It's not anything like it.  

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Definitely! After years of sexual, mental and physical abuse, I found a voice in writing. And, I learned I was not the only one. But I learned, everybody cannot interpret the feelings and twisting thoughts that result after abuse. I can do it so naturally which makes me so grateful for such a priceless gift.  

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process? My writing process opened many doors to embrace and be embraced by others.  

What has been the most rewarding experience in your publishing journey? Publishing my first self-published book and confident that it is a blessing for others.  

Do you come up with your title(s) before or after you write the manuscript? I have had titles before, doing and after completion depending on how it all comes together in meaning.  

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? I had a difficult time narrowing down a genre because I feel the book is so universal but to say it is a self-help, self-growth, spiritual and psychological general.  

What would one positive piece of advice you give to other authors? Know that whatever is within you to express in words, do it knowing others are waiting to read them.  

Who is your favorite author and why? Maya Angelou because she was so honest.

Tales From The Riverside – by Larry Landgraf

Tales from the Riverside tells true and unique stories about one man’s struggle with alligators, snakes, killer bees, and hordes of nasty critters on a daily basis in his swamp. Experience the danger without the need for professional medical services. Life in a swamp is not for everyone.

Cold Coffee Review: Tales from the Riverside, is a refreshing group of stories that you will relate to if you are not a born and raised a city dweller. If you are a city dweller, you will enjoy the stories, because Author Larry Landgraf writes with candor and humor as he shares his life on the Guadalupe River in Texas.

The author states it best “I’m a swamp dweller”. The book is divided up by thirty-five personal stories with actual photos which illustrate points of interest. Here are a few of his interesting titles: City Gals and Fishing, Catching Moccasins, You Are What You Eat, War in the Swamp, Our Wild Sex Life, Who’s to Blame...Our Dying Estuary, and The Day My World Blew Up in My Face, Literally to name a few.

I love the author’s statement, “There are dozens of ways to die in a swamp. There are just as many ways to die, if not more, in the city.” He goes on the say, “In my opinion, the most dangerous animal on this planet is man. I’ll take my chances with the alligators, bees, snakes, and all the other creatures that live in my swamp.”

As for Larry, he is more comfortable in the swamp where he and his girlfriend can have a garden and fry fresh catfish, not to mention battling with what will walk, fly, crawl, and slitter out of the swamp. Larry and Ellen (city gal) enjoy their beautiful, peaceful and even dangerous environment. He and his partner respect the power of nature, even when they had to endure the wrath of Hurricane Harvey.

Larry shares intimate personal life stories with words that will draw you into the swamp with him. You will feel compassion for Ellen (city woman), living life in a swamp. He even shares some of his mother’s recipes, which look downright yummy.

I, Theodocia Mclean, endorse Tales from the Riverside by Larry Landgraf as a great way to see how Larry lives his life and what he chooses to share with us readers. I purchased this book from Kindle and enjoyed it so much, I turned around and purchased a print paperback copy from Amazon to give to my husband as a Father’s Day gift.

Hawk McCoy: The Penthiads - by Mary T Kincaid

Hawk McCoy: The Penthiads - by Mary T Kincaid

Hawk McCoy is a fifth-grade boy looking for a mystery in his hometown of Izlet Bay, Georgia. He has his Fingerprints for All Occasions Guide, and his Super Sleuth 100 to work with. Where will he find his mystery? He and his best friend, Sandy Sue South walk dogs, garden, wash doors, and they do find mysterious sisters living in their town

Genre: Children's eBooks, Mysteries & Detectives, Fantasy & Supernatural, Science Fiction, Fantasy & Scary Stories, Fantasy & Magic

Cold Coffee Review: Hawk McCoy is a boy with an imagination. For all us adults who grew up exploring our neighborhood, solving mysteries with our neighborhood side-kicks, it is time to share stories like this with our children, grandchildren and great children in the hopes they too will leave the comfort of their game console and explore the world around them.

I wonder how many fifth graders today are using their imaginations to explore the world around them like Hawk McCoy and his best friend Sandy Sue.

The book is divided up into dated events like: MORNING: 6/4/2013, 9:00AM WASHINGTON, DC- GOVERNMENT OFFICE OF PROTECTION.

Mary T. Kincaid has written four middle grade books and has contributed to at least three anthologies.

I, Theodocia McLean, endorse Hawk McCoy: The Penthiads by Mary T Kincaid as the author reminds me of the endearing Aunt who lets you explore her basement, attic, yard, and neighborhood with gadgets made from items found around her home. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was posted on May 3, 2018.
