The Good & The Bad 2 Coming in 2016 / Sounds of Sing Sing #OnSaleNow / The Good & the Bad #OnSaleNow by George “Naim” Cash from (DJ Gatsby Presents & WBMG Publishing)
*All of these titles are books relating to stories that will hopefully make you think twice before doing and saying some of the things that we do when our emotions take control.
The Imperfect Parent Collection: A Short Story Collection Kindle Edition
All of these titles are books relating to stories that will hopefully make you think about how we constantly push ourselves to be the best parent that we can be. Some of us try so hard to emulate our own parents and then others try just as hard to give our children the life that we never had. No one knows which way works best or if it works at all, in view of the fact that every child is different, just as every day is. With that in mind, we have to treat each day as a new one and simply try to be best that we can be and know that we will never be perfect, but we owe it to our children to keep striving for it!
In this collection, there are plenty of parents that are doing what they think is best and making tons of mistakes while doing it. These stories are meant to reiterate the fact that we have all at some point felt like a bad parent. The key is through it all- the schools, the bullies and the bad relationships, we must remember that our children love us unconditionally and that little people have big eyes and ears. The world can be a terrible place, but as long as we stay strong in the eyes of our children, they will always have faith that “all storms blow over”. No matter how bad you think life is for you, with prayer and faith, someone before you got through much worse!
The Marriage Mayhem Collection: A Short Story Kindle Edition
The Realm of Regret Collection: A Short Story Kindle Edition
All of these titles are books relating to stories that will hopefully make you think twice before doing and saying some of the things that we do when our emotions take control. It is more often than less that when we become hurt or angry, we do and say things that we regret and after doing them, we can’t take them back. Once it is put out there, “I’m sorry” won’t always fix it. It is true that the power of life and death lies in the power of the tongue. Having said that, this collection, shows you how other people’s responses have landed them in the realm of regret which can change their lives forever.
The best way to avoid having a negative life altering event is to learn from other people’s mistakes and breathe before we allow our tongues and actions to take control. That is the reason which I would like to share with you these stories of regret…
Enjoy this collection which includes:
• Fight Like a Man
• Friends First
