There is an EXCELLENT ARTICLE AT THE END about VC ANDREWS! Does that name ring a bell? Flowers in the Attic + about 70+ MORE books! VC Andrews, despite her death, continues to write on! Read more below, and make SURE to click on the LINK to read an entire article about VC Andrews and Andrew Neiderman, the Ghostwriter, literally, for VC Andrews! She lives on in HIS writing! I LOVE it!

I promised this author, Corey Snow, I would review his book, The Life Coach. This book is NOT about a 'life coach', in the sense of the term of being a self-help guru, but it is a STORY he has written, which sounds really good to me! His website is at And here is the cover of his book! Reach him on Goodreads HERE!


I want to bring to your attention a NEW TV REALITY SHOW! 

This TV show schedule was just changed and is now on the SAME channel, TLC - The Learning Channel, on TUESDAY'S AT 10:00pm - so mark your calendars!! 

This is a "REAL" TV Reality showing a story that NEEDS TO BE TOLD! It teaches POLYGAMY - WHICH TURNS MEN INTO GODS - according to their religious beliefs! When in reality it makes 2 things - AN ABUSER AND A VICTIM, per Flora Jessop AND COMMON SENSE!
This show truly focuses on SAVING PEOPLE'S LIVES from the FLDS church, the "FUNDAMENTALIST LATTER DAY SAINTS CHURCH", NOT the LDS - Latter Day Saints.
Does the name "Warren Jeffs" mean anything to you? IT SHOULD! He is in prison for RAPING 2 young girls, and when I say young, I mean 12 and 13! Oh, there were MORE, but they could only catch him on these two due to court and legal process.

Would YOU want YOUR husband to be considered a GOD to take on MORE WIVES than just you? Of course not! THESE WOMEN HAVE NO CHOICE!
This compound STILL EXISTS TO THIS DAY! It continues on in Colorado City, Arizona on the border of Utah. The way this city is located, it keeps ANY local police and courts (and most of the people working in these positions happen to be IN THE CULT!) away and NOT able to help these people! This article HERE is an excellent article how Warren Jeffs STILL RUNS THE POLYGAMIST CULT from his JAIL CELL!
I've been watching the reality show, #ESCAPING THE PROPHET, and it goes without saying there are two people who help others STILL STUCK IN THIS CULT!
Meet "Flora Jessop @FloraJessop and Brandon Jeffs @BrandonJeffs who TIRELESSLY WORK to help these people get OUT if they would like to. These two people are SAINTS! They help ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET OUT - OUT! THIS STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD! They need to take safety precaution for themselves so THEY don't get hurt!
What happens? The women are literally hunted down to keep them from escaping so they can become MORE WIVES TO MORE MEN, YES, MEANING POLYGAMY! They are expected to have one baby per year, be submissive to their husbands, and so much more! Flora and Brandon also help the boys who are sexually abused and often kicked OUT of this cult, (the more men the less wives for them!) or who are STUCK in this cult as well, ENTIRE FAMILIES!
I believe this show is AMAZING! Anything YOU CAN DO TO HELP THEM WOULD BE SO APPRECIATED! THERE ARE ONLY 4 MORE SHOWS LEFT! The first 2 CAN be found on Amazon for $2 each show. Check it out! Or, go to TLC - ESCAPING THE PROPHET


Click on that LINK and it will take you TO THE CHARITY where you will find all kinds of information! PLEASE READ ABOUT IT! Just because Warren Jeffs is in jail - he is STILL RUNNING THIS CULT AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE STILL BELIEVING HIM! Warren Jeffs is NO PROPHET - he is a SICK man! Now his brother is the prophet - what am "I" saying? THERE IS NO PROPHET!!! Yet the power remains in Warren Jeff's brother's hands now.
Think this sounds crazy? THAT'S BECAUSE IT "IS" CRAZY! These people are brainwashed from infancy!

MORE attention needs to be given to this charity and MORE HELP IS NEEDED TO SAVE THESE PEOPLE STUCK IN THIS CULT! The sad thing is most of these people stuck in this cult don't even realize it IS A CULT!

Flora Jessop and Brandon Jeffs both were brought up and lived their lives IN THIS CULT until they realized at YOUNG AGES this was NOT THE WAY TO LIVE! Hundreds of siblings, 30+ mothers, and on and on and on. You can read more at their website, and learn more by watching the TV Reality show!

You know how some things just touch your heart? Well this one surely has touched mine! These two people have touched my heart for what they do and what they stand for!
These two people impress me beyond belief in what they do to help the people still stuck in this cult! Flora has written a book which can be found at Amazon. It is: Church of Lies by Flora Jessop.

It also looks like her sister, Carolyn, or maybe a former sister wife, or a cousin, (who knows because there are SO MANY people with the same last names - I hate to say that, but it's true. No one knows except them. I wish I would have had the time prior to publishing this post to find out just how this relation is - when I do I will TWEET IT) has also written a few books, Escape by Carolyn Jessop and Triumph: Life After the Cult--A Survivor's Lessons by Carolyn Jessop.
Not ONLY do we have people stuck in this cult, but because of the POLYGAMY, BIRTH DEFECTS ARE STARTING TO HAPPEN, and more information will be found at the website.
This is not some 'small' little problem, it is HUGE! I just want to bring it to your attention because I feel IT NEEDS TO BE.

PLEASE VISIT immediately to learn more!

  • TAKEDOWN TWENTY, by Janet Evanovich (Bantam)

  • FOREVER WITH YOU, by Laurelin Paige (Laurelin Paige)

  • FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC, by V.C. Andrews (Pocket Books) (Did any of you catch this movie on Lifetime? I caught it twice. This is the 3rd remake of this movie. I thought it was much better than the first two. It caught more of the tone of the book than the last two movies did! However, NOTHING can compare to reading THIS book! It was shocking to me, surprising, and very, very good! This was when it was the original V C Andrews. She passed away while she was writing her 2nd series of books, and it was her ghostwriter who picked up writing the rest of her 70+ books!

  • Those of you who did happen to love this movie will be surprised to learn that Lifetime IS making the sequel of "Petals on the Wind"! We have MORE to look forward to! I remember buying Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind when they first came out in the summer of 1980! I bought them to take and read while on vacation when we went up north. I foolishly thought two books would keep me busy my entire vacation! Not with these books! I STILL remember EVERY detail from those books to today! Some HOW MANY YEARS LATER?! 

  • I live in Michigan, so going Up North meant going to the Upper Peninsula! We drove all the way across it (to the right) and took a car fairy to a little island called Drummond Island. The problem was I read the first book in the car before we even got to the UP! I could NOT STOP READING IT! I ravenously read it! The second day we were there I read Petals on the Wind, and was without anything left to read the entire WEEK of vacation! I reread Flowers in the Attic AND Petals on the Wind! I remember going store to store, any and every store looking at the books, looking for MORE of her books! I was HOOKED on this author's writing! Bummer part was none of her next books were out YET! These Young Adult books with VERY adult themes to them were QUITE the RAGE! No one could wait for the next book in the series! Hope that gives you a little insight! For MORE information about this author and these books, CLICK HERE to read MORE! AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE! You will LOVE what you read! I sure did! I ended up reading the entire series, and now, there are MORE! LOVE it! This writer's (ghostwriter after her death) still continues on to today! Amazing! I keep reading!)
