I’m proud to work with Dawn James as senior editor for her company, Publish and Promote. Recently, I edited her new website at dawnjames.ca and I’m almost finished editing her autobiography, Unveiled: Autobiography of an Awakened One which I can tell you is riveting! The book will be released on March 20, 2021 and you can sign up for the virtual book launch party on her new website.
This month we’re also working together on an anthology of stories by 21 women, curated by Daisy Wright. It's so empowering to be a part of getting those stories out to the world! Most of us have a unique and interesting story to tell so if you have always wanted to write yours and need help getting started, reach out to Dawn at email@example.com.
She told me not to tell anyone.
Brenda Montgomery was born with a gift that she didn’t quite know how to cope with. Her mother told her to hide it and growing up she was made to feel that it was forbidden. But how was she supposed to pretend it didn’t exist? It was a huge part of her life and affected not only her but also close friends, family and even people she didn’t know! As she grew older, some came to call her a psychic and others called her a seer who lives in two worlds, the world of the living and the spirit world. In many cultures, her abilities are highly treasured, and she is looked upon as a guide.
Through her lens, you will learn how a young girl was guided by physical and angelic beings to expand her abilities and help others. In these pages, you will find childhood stories that are introspective, comical, frightening, inspiring, thought-provoking and loving. Brenda reminds us what it is to be innocent yet wise and encourages us to move forward in a world of uncertainty with courage.
The Forbidden Gift reminds us that being different really is a good thing and those who don't understand can learn from Brenda’s stories and experiences. She hopes that by telling her story, she will help others to be more open-minded and accepting of those who are different. This is part one of a two-part volume about Brenda’s life and living with a Forbidden Gift.
