Introducing James C. Rollins, author of Emancipation Proclamation: The True Black History

“It is my hope that every author would have the same amazing experience that I had with the guidance I received through my Publishing Consultant. I have published three books before this experience, never having the same wonderfully efficient publishing. Thank you.”

James C. Rollins is a retired D.C. Government civil servant. He is a resident of Prince Georges County, Md. the father of four kids and the grandfather of four super special kids, and great grandfather of two baby boys and a baby girl. He probably was one of the first single parent dads of the 1970s. He attended Antioch University. Rollins served in the US Air Force from 1961 (beginning construction of the Berlin Wall, The Cuban Missile Crisis, also known as the October Crisis of 1962, and the Viet Nam war) to 1965. The Author’s history is significant because he was born in 1942, 15 city blocks from the nation’s capital, in a house that had no indoor plumbing (it had an outhouse) nor electricity, and it was heated by a wood stove in the dining room. He was born mid-day, at home, by the mid-wife who was also his grandmother- not in the local hospital (that was 4 blocks away), because it only accepted black patients in emergency.

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION THE TRUE BLACK HISTORY. The journey from the valley of darkness by African slaves in 1619, to the mountain top in 2008 with the election of African American Barak Obama, President of the United States. African Americans searching for the African roots of their culture should begin by understanding that only about five percent of between 11 and 12 million enslaved Africans were brought to North America or the United States. By 1619 the first African indentured servants arrived in the American colonies. The indentured servant was not a slave; they were under contract to provide service, over some time, after which they were set free. “What an interesting book! This book is well written while covering such a wide variety of topics that each entry is interesting and enlightening. There was an excellent job of covering a large period before the EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION and after many in a clear and concise manner. It definitely gives the readers some food for thought, and they’ll still be thinking about this book and its revelations long after they’ve read the last page.” Author of the controversial book The Curse of Willie Lynch: How social engineering in the year 1712 continues to affect African Americans today.

Introducing Geoffrey Bott, author of Uphill: An Inspirational Story of Suffering, Greed, Carnage, Immense Courage and Gut-determination

“This whole experience has been brilliant. I have never written a book so didn’t know what to expect. Uphill is incredibly emotional. The stories are real and I have been torn to pieces. Writing it, editing it and editing again for printing was hard work. We got there. I am just in awe, honestly. Speechless…. Thank you. It has been a privilege. I have written the first chapter of my next book, a fictional thriller. Fantastic. I am shocked and humbled.”

Book description…

A story that is touching every reader’s heart…. from the man who lived it. Born in England to a middle class family, Geoffrey Bott excelled at school in most sports. A tenacious and unbridled drive to succeed that he didn’t know would be required in order to survive later in life. Armed with a degree in engineering from the University of Sheffield, Geoffrey moved to California to reap his American Dream. Uphill is incredibly emotional, vivid and detailed about the rise and fall of a gifted and talented engineer. An innocuous knee injury playing rugby for his city would develop into a grim prognosis a few decades later. A month after rejecting a second groundbreaking knee rebuild procedure, his wife files for divorce and the life he had attained started to unravel. The book takes the reader to a bar in soviet Russia, a brothel in Venezuela, a nightclub in Hong Kong, to Taipei, Tokyo, Vancouver Island, a casino in Las Vegas. It graphically describes thirteen left knee surgeries, screaming pain, addictions to mind-altering opioids, a precedent-setting divorce, a court file sealed from public records, a forest fire that destroyed his new neighbourhood, a night in jail, world’s first scientific discoveries and cycling heroics deemed impossible that left the renowned medical profession speechless. This is a captivating page-turner that has it all and encapsulates the very essence of human suffering, courage, hope and determination. An inspirational, entertaining and riveting story that will leave the reader stunned and emotionally drained.

Book description…

Christmas Eve 1944 The Greatest Day in the History of Aerial Warfare. The events of World War II have been studied, analyzed and documented extensively. Yet, one of the greatest feats of aerial bombing warfare has been all but ignored. In Hitler’s Last Christmas, we revisit the Second World War and specifically Sunday, December 24, 1944-when the 8th Air Force launched the largest air armada in the history of warfare. It was a desperate effort by the Allies to support the troops hopelessly hunkered down in the frigid weather of the Battle of the Bulge. The eventual success of those beleaguered troops was to some great measure due to the success of that Christmas Eve air mission. The details of the 8th Air Force mission #760 were mis-filed shortly after the war and the magnitude of that day in December 1944 overlooked-until now. Hitler’s Last Christmas shares the accounts of the event both from the Air Force Archives and the memories of those brave flyers who participated in it.

AMERICA NEEDS YOU. Less than half the voting age population voted in the 2018 election. The most common reason given for low voter turn out has been a belief by many Americans that the elections are not fair and honest, and most likely riddled with fraud and corruption. The Presidential 2020 election, however, appears to be shaping up as a referendum on the direction of this country. Voters who identify with Republicans and conservatives are looking for some way to participate in the election process more than voting on November 3, 2020. They want to do more than send relentless mail in cash to various professional campaign fundraising organizations. They are really looking for a “how to” book that allows them to be proactive. We believe “Red Wave Taskforce 2020: Handbook for a Grassroots Movement of Proactive Voters” is just such a book. This handbook is meant to help empower the American voters to take back the electoral process. It helps in allowing the American people to decide what direction they wish for their country through a fair and open election November 3, 2020.

Book description…

The Best and Worst of Human Nature. A police officer involved in a controversial event is reassigned to a quiet district to avoid attention, but he encounters a ghost who leads him on a high-speed chase. A newspaper article leads a Marine down a complex path of memory toward a deserter who saved his life. A man desperate to prove the existence of God goes searching for a ghost…and finds something he couldn’t imagine. A boy on the brink of adolescence is attracted to an eccentric neighbor and struggles to make sense of a scene he accidentally sees. In these stories and more, author Ed Moroney illuminates the shadows of the soul and channels the brilliant light that shines from the human heart. From lonely policemen to brutal men in battle, from the poignant immediacy of small-town life to the insignificance of one person in a crowd, from transcendence to degradation, these beautifully observed tales teach, inspire, surprise, and entertain.
