When seventeen year old Paige Daniels can no longer ignore the pangs of hunger, a dumpster is often her only source of nourishment. Paige has never had the opportunity to be a typical teenager. From the time she was thirteen, life has been lived on the streets. She steals what she needs to survive, but never without a silent apology and a promise to pay for whatever she took when she has the chance.
Paige finds herself with a new partner, twenty year old Noah, and her life changes in more ways than she ever thought possible. After waking up to the first snow fall of the year, Paige and Noah attempt to steal a blanket but end up taking more than they ever had before.
Will Paige and Noah just give up what they have come to know? Or will they do anything to keep the life they have begun to live?

The mass consciousness is at a point where it knows there has to a better way. People may not know what it is but they are beginning to open up to the possibility they can learn what this better way is. Being in the Realm of the Secrets that Ms. Doolin relates, is being where you want to be by knowing you are already there but just temporarily forgot until someone who loves you, shows you the way. There are numerous authors helping our brothers and sisters get clear with their intention, and helping them to get clear with changing their thoughts and changing their perception about themselves and their lives. Once our community of family gets it, families will no longer choose to be or live in a fear. Kids will be happier, kinder, more loving because parents will learn how to support self-esteem in their children, confidence building by positive words, actions and deeds. It only takes one person at a time to get it and share it with others, through love.
Secrets that seem to be secrets to the public are revealed in Daya Devi-Doolin's book for the well being of everyone, so they won't give up and loose sight of their dreams, desires, purpose and goals. Author Daya Devi-Doolin is encouraging her readers to keep on and to not give up before they take their next step forward that may very well be the last necessary one through the doorway of IT for them.
The formulae shared in her book are basic Universal laws but not generally taught or known. Mrs. Doolin shares these with the intent to propel people to the fulfillment of their dreams quickly, easily and basically effortlessly with faith and how to direct their feelings to the fulfillment of their dreams.
This book highlights some of the experiences in her life, to show the reader how life can be enhanced as well by getting to the bottom of how the Laws of the Universe works.
There are many paths one can take in life but eventually, they will only lead you to the place, The Only Way Out Is In: The Secrets of the 14 Realms to Love, Happiness and Success
, mentions, where you will find peace, happiness, abundance and love.
This book presents the principles that are universal and cannot be claimed by anyone person as theirs. But you can claim the qualities for yourself and become these qualities totally and completely. This book helps the seeker to transform her life today. It shows and guides the reader how the Law of Being, sometimes called the Law of Attraction has worked in my life and how she can have it work more consciously for herself too. It gives directions on how to Be in the various realms and qualities of substance, thereby changing one’s life by changing their perception of whom and where they think they are.
This book works on its own merit of vibration with intention of vibrating at the needed frequency of assisting one in going within and living his or her Truth.

of The RAWSISTAZ(tm) ReviewersCustomer Testimonials "Dear Daya,
I wanted to take the time to tell you my story. As I said in my brief message the other morning, once I started reading "The Only Way Out is IN", I couldn't put it down. Amazingly each time I pick it up and read something just at random I seem to magically find more there. Now I understand more about how Spirit moves you.
About three weeks after my surgery I developed hives. I increased my antihistamines since I seemed to have these allergic reactions up to four or five long periods a year now. They didn't go away. I manipulated my diet etc and went crazy trying to figure out what it was. I was referred by my Doctor to an Allergist who then matter of factly told me it wasn't allergies. I was stunned. We tested for autoimmune diseases and sent blood samples for allergies just to make sure we weren't missing anything and all the while increased and added meds until we had to resort to adding steroids which made me miserable to say the least. I tried reducing the meds after the course of steroids only to be frustrated once again by hives. I felt like a zombie and a crazy woman since there was no clear diagnosis and not intention by my Doctors to pursue it further other than to offer more meds and the next step was immunosuppressants. Which I knew I could NOT possibly take and work in an ER. I finally sat down and gathered my thoughts and made a decision. Nothing in western medicine had really worked and I didn't feel comfortable taking that many meds for such a prolonged period. I racked my brains for a solution and instead found one in my heart and soul. I decided to stop the meds, use energy and vibrational healing such as Reiki and sound healing (binaural beats and tuning forks) as well as get back to my roots so to speak and asked Holy Spirit to move through me and take this on. I found I couldn't control it. The more I tried the worse it was for me. About this time was when I picked up your book, "The Only Way OUt is IN", and it affirmed for me that I had made the right decision. It also helped me make a life decision: I had planned to certify as a Professional Organizer. I remembered through my soul searching that I always said that if I could do anything, I would take those women that are in bad points in their lives and help them "get" a better life. Through you I found, "A Course in Miracles" and it felt right to me. I also found coursework that I can complete mostly at home for Ministerial Training and Counseling. When I decide to take on a new project I usually feel jittery and "stressed". This feels right and it's a calm peace that had come over me. I noticed that you are involved in Unity Church and for whatever reason I searched for Unity Church in Billings. The first program series I clicked on is a series of talks about the similarities between Dalai Lama and the founder of this Unity Church. Perhaps its an olive branch...
By the way, I haven't had any hives from the moment I picked up your book and no one in western medicine can explain it. :-)
Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences, your insight, faith, and spirit. It made the difference in a life.
With compassion always,

Every morning I am reading this book I am truly inspired by it. I have read many inspirational books and I have to put this one at the top of my list. Recently I have been operated on for breast cancer and although I have been healed from the cancer I have a lot of anger I have had to deal with believing the cause was from the wrong doing of others to me, but because of your book I am learning to have a whole new perception of my life and how I deal with others. I am truly grateful Daya for your sharing and giving to the world a wonderful insight of how to love and healing of ourselves. I will be reading your book many times over.

DWED Interviews Rebecca D. Myers the author of “My Journey to Heaven and Back” a non-fiction/Spiritual novel about her near death experience and how she overcame the obstacles surrounding it. About the Author
Rebecca was born in New York, New York in 1956, but raised in New Orleans, LA. Rebecca loves that New Orleans Creole cooking and the great po-boys sandwiches. In 1985 she moved to Milton FL in 1985 with the love of her life and her two children.
Rebecca attended college in 1996 and received her Associate of Science Degree and Registered Nursing, which was a life long dream. She is now retired and writing her second book.
Rebecca wrote My Journey to Heaven and Back because of her near death experience. It is her hope that someone will be blessed and will discover that death is just a transition and nothing to fear. She was writing a book on her abuse when her near death experience happened and felt compelled to write My Journey to Heaven and Back first and put the abuse story on hold.
Rebecca has a finally found true love with her husband of 28 years and is blessed with a great marriage. My Journey to Heaven and Back “My Journey to Heaven and Back” is about a near death experience and a very inspiring love story. Rebecca’s encounter with death started because of surgery. All seemed fine and going as planned, but on the second day Rebecca suddenly stopped breathing. Her husband at her bedside immediately went for help. Staff arrived and “a code” was started. While staff was trying to revive Rebecca with medical interventions, her husband, Gene, was outside in another area pleading and praying for God’s divine intervention.
Gene’s pleas and prayers did not go unnoticed. His love reached into eternity and Rebecca heard his pleas. Would she decide to return to the love of her life or stay in a peaceful love filled atmosphere she recognized as “Heaven”? Not an easy decision.
Rebecca takes the reader on a journey of her life in which there were other times she eluded death. Her book was written to inspire those who are afraid to die. Death is a reality that everyone will face. How we face it is up to us. It is her hope and desire that no one will fear death after reading her descriptive and inspiring story of her near death experience. DWED: Tell us a little about yourself: Rebecca:
I'm Rebecca D. Myers, Milton, FL. Mother of 2, married 28 years this March. I love to cook, sew and write. I am a new grandmother to a beautiful five month old little boy. He just melts my heart. I love cooking New Orleans Creole food and am thankful for my heritage from New Orleans. I really love Mardi gras and miss it. I am strong in my faith and love to read the bible and encourage people. I'm a retired R.N. and miss working as a nurse. DWED: What inspired you to write? Rebecca:
I wanted to help and encourage someone. I believed I had a story to tell and maybe could help someone lose their fear of dying. I have to admit, I was afraid to die, but since my journey I have no fear of death whatsoever. I wanted others to know they do not need to fear death. DWED: How did “My journey to Heaven and Back” come about? Rebecca:
Well, actually I was writing a book about my abuse when I experienced my near death experience and felt compelled to write about the experience first.DWED: Is there, would you say a specific influence in your life that inspired you to publish this book? Rebecca:
Yes. I was definitely influenced by the experience of seeing and being in heaven. The sights, singing and feelings were unbelievable. I tried my very best to describe it. But, honestly no matter how hard I tried, I'm afraid I still did not do justice to the experience. Just to feel God's presence is definitely un-describable. I wish everyone would experience what I did. My life will never be the same. DWED: Are you on a book tour or using any promotional devices to help push “My Journey to Heaven and Back”? Rebecca:
No, I am not on book tour. To be honest I am brand new to publishing and have not had time to explore all the opportunities that are available. I am learning everyday new things.DWED: Was it hard to put your experiences on paper? Also, was it hard finding the nerve to publish? Rebecca:
It was not hard for me to put my experiences on paper at all. However, getting them in correct order, correct wording and punctuation is a completely different story. I read the book so many times before publishing I just about know it my heart. Publishing took me in another direction. I had to learn the ins and outs of publishing. There is a lot to discover when taking on publishing responsibilities. Luckily, the internet is full of information and advice which is very helpful.
Of course formatting e-books was brand new to me and pushing the enter button for the first time made me very nervous when placing it on the very first site. DWED: Has the book had any positive feedback? Negative? Rebecca:
I have had nothing but positive feedback thus far. It warms my heart that complete strangers would be so kind. It definitely has been a humbling experience.DWED: Do you have any hobbies? Rebecca:
Yes, I do. I love to sew and make crafts, cook and write. However, because of illness I do not do much cooking or crafts. I used to do a lot, but my body has slowed me down.DWED: How are you doing now? Rebecca:
Since I wrote My Journey to Heaven and Back I have been extremely busy trying to promote it. Promotion takes up so much time. I do know that word of mouth is the very best type of promotion. I've been told my many that a writer does not become famous usually until they die. Well, done that. So...DWED: What are your current Projects? Rebecca:
As of now, I am finishing my book about my physical, emotional, mental, and sexual abuse as a child and an adult. I want abused victims to know they can survive. There is hope for them. They are of value. There is help out there for them. They are not alone. DWED: Is there anything you would like to say to your audience? Rebecca:
I would like to say thank you to those that have purchased My Journey to Heaven and Back and for their encouragement. Also, if someone is afraid of dying they need to buy the book. I believe they would find an answer to some of their questions. Be prepared the book takes you on a short journey of my life which is an insight to my next book about the abuse.
I would also like to ask the audience to please place your review of any book you read on Amazon. Reviews are so important to authors rather positive or negative. A positive review puts a smile on my face and in my heart.
Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of this. I thank you for your valuable time and energy you devote to interviewing authors. It takes a very special person to be dedicated to promoting others.

A mother’s love vs. A daughter’s revenge.
Charlene Shaw has gone through hell. She was raped and left for dead, yet she continued on her quest for fame. She’s a beautiful, desired actress who has found her Mr. Wright. According to the magazine headlines, her life is perfect. There’s just one thing her heart cries for…her daughter, Raven. This might be her hardest challenge yet–building the mother-daughter bond she’s prayed so hard for.
Raven Shaw has been abandoned by love. Her mom preferred Hollywood and her childhood best-friend, now ex-lover, disappeared when she became pregnant. Now, she’s adjusted to a “new” kind of love…motherhood. She’s determined that her daughter will have everything she didn’t. The only thing she wants for herself is revenge, even if it means disconnecting from a small piece of her heart that still cares. Raven’s acts of rage slither into her mindset, overpowering her in the form of nightmares and delusions of skeletons long dead.
After Raven’s scandalous ways, can Charlene mend Raven’s heart or will she be pulled down into the abyss? And then, there’s always the option, Charlene can get a little scandalous too…
Book to be Released 3/1/13 Can you stand the wait?

Shaw Family Saga Presents its first book in series
What inspired you to write “ Dapper Carter’s 8 rules of dating ”?
What inspired me to write the book? Its loosely based on actual events that may or may not have occurred...vague enough for you? lol When i went through my own divorce ten years i was forced to start dating again and dating in NYC is an animal of a different color. Women were able to smell my desperation and i was easily taken advantage of in certain situations so i developed "rules" to date by. Funny enough, i wrote it as a movie script first, my financing fell through, so i decided to release it as a romance novel instead. A lot of people seemed to think it was a self help book but as like i advertise "This ain't no self help book!" Although its rooted in reality i prefer fiction so that i have carte blanche to embellish.
Who designed the cover?
I designed the cover actually.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
the message is that if you're looking for love your chances of finding it are slim. However if you do you, love yourself, and give whatever it is your longing for first, it will come back to you. If you want love you have to give love. If you want attention, you have to give attention...if you seek affection you have to give affection.
What books have most influenced your life most?
Interestingly enough i've always been into the classics. Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, Oedipus Rex, the Outsiders. Im also into self help: Dr. Wayne Dyer, Joel Osteen, Les Brown to name a few.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
the writer i consider a mentor is my cousin Monique Gilmore-Scott. She has published several books through Arabesque and self published as well. She has always pushed me to continue writing even when i ran from my gift. I also have another cousin, Vernon Wardrick, who is self published so im fortunate to come from a creative family that inspires me.
What book are you reading now?
. I am currently reading Black Passenger Yellow Cabs by Stefhen F.D.Bryan
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I have just finished the sequel to 8 Rules of Dating which is Dapper Carter's My Life is a Movie. The tag is that in 8 Rules he was looking for love--this time he's looking for a good time! It is ri-diculous! This time Dapper is armed with a new self confidence that wasn't apparent in 8 Rules of Dating. I have also just began the third book in the Dapper Carter series Kennedy Carter's 8 Rules of Dating...what if Dapper Left Her First? This will be from his ex-wife Kennedy's perspective and she will incorporate the same rules. Lots of people felt like my rules were a bit chauvenistic so i want to show how they work for everyone, including women. After that will be Who Is Dapper Carter? which will show Dapper and Kennedy's relationship before they divorced and finally give insight into why Dapper does the things that he does. Then Dapper's Daughter followed by Dapper Carter Wuz Here which chronicles Caesar and his relationship as kiutds growing up in Newark. Im also working on an urban graphic novel Legend of D'Angelo Death and a murder mystery called La-La-Land. I have a terrible tension span and only sleep about 5 hours a night so i can work on multiple projects at once believe it or not
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
What i find challenging in my writing is that i am a visual person and a screenwriter/director first. I have penned over 12 feature length scripts. The challenge is that a picture is worth a thousand words and i pine over how to be more descriptive in my writing. Not to mention believe it or not i am kind of a prude so the sex scenes are stressful and do not come easy for me. (i'm sure you don't believe me. lol)
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Iceberg Slim is my fav author and what strikes me is his grittiness and honesty. I am a city boy having grown up outside of Newark,NJ and having lived in Brooklyn and Los Angeles as well so i identify and can clearly see the landscapes he illustrates clearly and viscerally.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
I believe every person on this planet has a novel inside of them but not everyone has the discipline to sit down and write it. Pick a time of day to write (for me its between 4am and 10am) and leave something in the tank for the next day so you can look forward to writing instead of dreading the grind. Also, self publish if you can. The powers that be will criticize, dissect, and red-pen your manuscript to death. If you self pub you can say anything you want. You have to trust yourself that you know your story better than the publishing houses.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
what i would like to say to my readers is that i try to write as honest as possible and i give you the good and the bad. I call it "relentless honesty" and my mantra is that when you're real you're never wrong! Keep it 100 at all times and although some my not like you or the message you have no choice but to respect my honesty and point of view.
