#BlackWriters Write Some Stuff

Lord knows I respect and love Whoopi Goldberg's talent and hustle. She is the reason I'm still watching The View on ABC, to support her efforts.

Tarran Emotionally Wounded Spiritually Strong

First, I am blessed that goodreads affords us the opportunity to be friends. Therefore, I wanted to invite you as a fan and request your support for my book.

Many are being healed from the pages of this book. I thank God that I did not allow my fears to hinder my progress to get this book out. Transparency is the antidote that has touched several. My journey is to help others through the healing process--an intrepid life's journey.

Please help me get this book out to others by recommending it and spreading the word.

Please subscribe to my webpage www.tcarterministries.com

Thank you for all of your support
