Book Spotlight: Accepted Secured Significant by Kemley Whiteside

Image
This text is a spiritual and inspirational journey for those drawn away from their purpose by the circumstances of their lives. This book is dedicated to those told they would never amount to anything.
It is for those told they would be just like their mother or father, that they are idiots, mistakes, and failures. It is for the pushed aside and ignored. It is for those under shadow, and for those abused from childhood. It is for the molested, and the ones told that no one loves them and no one ever would. It is for the misled and mistreated. It is for the suicidal. It is for the victims of domestic violence and abusive relationships. It is for those in spiritual bondage, and those who don’t believe in themselves. It is for those suffering from cancer or other diseases. It is for the motherless, fatherless, jobless, and homeless. It is for the depressive and anxious, the lonely and isolated. This book is for the hopeless.
To my brothers and sisters who need a way out: This book was writ…

Interview with Linda K. Sienkiewicz

Image
1. In your story, the main character Angelica Schirrick goes on a journey of self-discovery after her family suffers a devastating blow. Have you been on a similar journey in your own life?

Our family suffered a tragic loss when my eldest son took his own life in 2011, but I don’t know if there’s ever an end to such a journey. You have to find your way every single day. Living with loss becomes part of who you are. Like Angelica, I understand there are no guarantees in life, and I now have more empathy for anyone who’s suffered any kind of tragedy or loss. Life itself is a constantly evolving journey of self-discovery

2. Angelica speaks to an old love interest, Joe, about her life. Why not have her tell her story outright? Why tell it to Joe and not to the reader?

In the Context of Love is an intimate love story, and my hope is to create an equally intimate experience for the reader. If Angelica were to tell her story to the reader, the way most stories are written, she would be tellin…
