There are two different types of education.

It’s said there are two different types of education: One is knowledge of the world around you, society, and how the world actually works and the second one is that which one learned in a classroom but a wise person knows when to apply which.

Billy Graham passed away today.

I am sure by now, you all heard have about Billy Graham. He passed away today after a long illness. His crusades started in 1947 at the time when America was still deeply segregated. Graham’s first integrated crusade was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1953. After the ropes cordoning off the black section of the auditorium were removed, Graham told the ushers who threatened to put them back up, “Either these ropes stay down or you can go on and have the revival without me.” From then on, Graham permanently adopted the policy of holding only integrated revivals. Many may not know this but to have held an openly integrated crusade in those days, back in 1953 was a very dangerous thing to do. That move should have cost him his life.

On Suffering:

“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.”

“Mountaintops are for views and inspiration, but fruit is grown in the valleys.”

“When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God.”

“Someone asked me recently if I didn’t think God was unfair, allowing me to have Parkinson’s and other medical problems when I have tried to serve him faithfully. I replied that I did not see it that way at all. Suffering is part of the human condition, and it comes to us all. The key is how we react to it, either turning away from God in anger and bitterness or growing closer to him in trust and confidence.”

“Believers, look up – take courage. The angels are nearer than you think.”

“Quit beating yourself up. We all live under grace and do the best we can.” ~ Billy Graham.


 

billy-graham-quote

Billy Graham, spoke to over 2 million people on his 1956 UK ‘crusade’, including a young monarch named Elizabeth II. Graham’s London crusade was considered a triumph beyond all expectation. The 11,000-seat Harringay Arena in north London was packed every night; 120,000 turned up to his finale at Wembley Stadium.

Over the following three decades, Graham returned to the UK seven times, each time preaching to capacity audiences.

Yes, I have read many things about him and his associations with many different political figures from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. He’s an excellent example of we are all flawed and under Grace we all do the best we can.

Diversity Sells-‘Black Panther’ scores highest Monday ever with $40.2M

This is why every time I speak to an audience I advise diversity of characters. I can not stress enough to widen the diversity of your characters to capture a broader audience.

The block bursting movies “Black Panther’ scores highest Monday ever with $40.2M just prove my theory to be true. Monday is not a good day for going to the movies. And neither is February a good month for movie going.

2467, Brunswick, GA. (Tidwell County). 1-day Jacob BuFaye looked in horror as his daughter Ana BuFaye (3) had ran a pitchfork into her foot.
It must have been laying around while he, Jr. BuFaye (son/brother) & the other workers were tending to the farm chores.
Off to the hospital they went.

ER Dr. Lehrman, nurses/staff, police & a social worker all greeted them.
Fantasia “Fannie” BuFaye (wife/mom, literature teacher, nee Preston) got full instructions how to tend to the injury.
Sheriff Greg Lent was dealing with Clint Tidwell who wanted the Preston Farm Eminent Domain because of several yrs. of unpaid property taxes.
There was quite a historical side to this property.
2469, Ana Bufaye (5) seems to be scared of a lot of things.
Helena Bufaye (13) her sister who sleeps in the same room makes nighttime feel a little safer.
Outside their window is an evil looking man who stares up at Helena.
2471, Who is & what happed to Cooter?
Helena Bufaye (15) had won the $500 pies, cakes & cobblers contest.
Mr. Lamont Burke (Barbecue Pitt owner) also won $500 for his BBQ entry.
Sheriff Greg Lent & Deputy Sheriff Kate Langston were on the scene as PPL were being rushed to the hospital because of food poisoning salmonosas food poisoning.
Ana (7), & Jack BuFaye (son/brother) were still alive.
Chymes (daughter) did not make it.

Who would survive & who will perish?

Warning: This book is for adults only & contains profanity. It may be offensive to some readers.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written paranormal book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great paranormal movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Review of King Eochaidh the Horse Warrior.

I appreciate all reviews of all my books regardless of who wrote them or where they were left because people do not have to take the time out of their busy day to write one.

King E. Book Review

Tony Parsons

Aug 28, 2017Tony Parsonsrated it it was amazing
887 A.D. Romans no longer occupied Britannia.
King Eochaidh (Horse Warrior) had returned when he heard Alfred the Great (King of Wessex) had torched his prize castle.
Teàrlach (m) & Ceallach (m) were glad he was back.
Queen Alyth (Erin Alyth McDaniels, daughter, Ireland, Norshire), informed King Eochaidh that her father Erin McDaniels had been killed at the Battle of Dublin.
Later, what was Queen Alyth up to?
The bloody & gory battles for survival continued.
Teàrlach, Ceallach & Queen Alyth were always at odds with each other.

Queen Alyth & King Alfred (Saxon) were hosting a fabulous banquet for King Eochaidh & Queen Ealhswith.

There were a few parts that didn’t make any sense what so ever.

I really enjoy reading these types of King/Queen books, but the ones I have read have a detailed description of who’s/who.

Warning: This book is for adults only & contains violent or graphic adult content or profanity &/or mild sexually explicit scenarios. It may be offensive to some readers.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written medieval tale (historical fiction) book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great medieval tale movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Sick House-a novel.

Sick House eBook cover

Sick House

This story is a part of the Chronicles of Ana but in many ways it is a standalone. This is a poster not the bookcover. I don’t think a cover has been made yet for this book by it being a year or two in the publishing line up. The link above will take you to the preview of the book. 

Preface

Sick House

Sick House

By A. White

Home is the safe place but what if is not? What if your home is infected with unseen elements that can not only make you sick but kill you.

(No, I am not talking mold and mildew. LOL)

Know that you are a great writer.

Some may say this sound pompous, arrogant and pretentious but actually it is not. It is not arrogant to know your worth. Because it is going to take this attitude to make it as a writer.

A few weeks ago at a book signing event I met an elderly man who swears he had seen this before (everyone thinking they can write because they can string two sentences together) and only the true authors are going to be left standing. He said he doesn’t read books unless a big publishing company is behind them.

Then I guess he has never read some of the most remarkable work known. Castle Rock was not a big publishing house when they took on Stephen King. But he’s the most highly paid author in the world today.

I ignored him for I didn’t drive through snow to get there to listen to him.  Yes, there are trolls offline too.

He said years ago it was vanity publishing companies milling out books by the thousands and most aspiring authors fell to the wayside never to be heard from again. The writers gave up and went back to their day jobs. Was he giving me a hint? I don’t know but I’m sure he was but I have many years of writing under my belt. Many years he knows nothing about.

These are the kind of things you will hear. Develop a tough skin and keep on doing what you do. Being a writer doesn’t mean being perfect. You are going to write great stories and not so great ones but keep on writing.

This is the greatest fear most who want to write let hold them back. It’s like anything else you want to do…if you await others’ approval, you’ll never accomplish anything.
