    Collisions: My Story

    by Susan Pritchard

    As military brats, we believed life on the post was how everyone lived. We lived in authoritarian atmospheres where we were expected to be adaptable, resilient, and cooperative. Growing up in a military family would turn out to be a very rewarding experience. Although, at times it was stressful and complicated with the many moves, the temporary friends, and being forced into different cultures every few years, we still found our way through the trials and became grateful for our upbringing. From the camaraderie in our communities to the secrets kept in our houses, we would be bound together by the lessons we learned and the skills we acquired. Our experiences as children would collide with the world outside of the military’s borders.

    Doug Jenkinson

    Meet Doug Jenkinson, author of Magnolia in Ilium. Doug is a published author and loves everything fantasy, mystery, and fun! His latest tale involves twelve-year-old Magnolia Bannister who lives a carefree life aboard her parent's magical steamboat, a vessel that travels half-in, and half-out of, the domain of men and women.


    But all that is about to change when her parents hand her an emerald-green envelope with spidery golden writing on it. It's an announcement from Gryndells, a prestigious school for magician children in Ilium, telling her that she has been enrolled in school there.

    Magnolia sends sparks flying, but when she meets a three-hundred-year old magician who gives her a special ring and tells her that "things won't go so well" in Ilium if she doesn't accept it, Magnolia's curiosity takes hold and she has a change of heart.

    A BOOK WRITTEN BY A POLICE OFFICER, FOR A FELLOW LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.

    Each year, hundreds of current, former, and retiring law enforcement officers, attempt the transition to private or non-sworn investigator employment. Although the officer may have excelled in his or her former career, starting one's business is challenging. More challenging, is having to function in the private sector without the same resources and authority law enforcement traditionally has — the National Crime and Information Center, the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS), the ability to arrest for impeding an investigation, the cooperation that is generally received when one is a sworn officer, a helicopter, a team of undercover investigators, and a dispatcher.

    Anthony (Tony) Fonte is a New Beginnings coach, an author, a speaker, and most importantly, a dad. Inspired by the tragic loss of his wife in 2011 and the many life experiences he has walked through, Tony began a journey of intense personal growth and vulnerability where he learned tools to help him create a new beginning for him and his daughter.

Now, he teaches these same tools to help others achieve their new beginning and transform their lives and their relationships. You can feel, see, and hear the passion when Tony talks about these trials and the triumphs. The systems and tools Tony uses in his one-on-one sessions, his small groups, or his large groups from the stage help others achieve results extraordinarily fast. He believes that life is a journey, not a sprint, and hopes that New Beginnings will help you find the life that YOU were created to live.

    Shaun E. Sundahl

    Author and Private Investigator

    In the 2014 edition of my book, The California Legal Investigator, many of my colleagues have said great things about my book's content, but criticized the grammar, syntax, punctuation, and the clarity. So, in late 2017, I hired Jessica Beeson from Beeson Editing to do a final edit on my manuscript to fix those problems.

    Those who know me, know that I don't "sugar coat" reviews and this review is no exception. Jessica's pricing was a little higher than other freelance editors who worked on my book, but her prices were lower than brick and mortar copyediting companies. The saying of "you get what you pay for" holds true and Jessica's work was exceptional.

    Overall, I saw value in Jessica's work and I would recommend her service to anyone who appreciates the work of a professional editor.

    As of October 30, 2017, my book hit #1 on Amazon's Kindle Legal Section. Sometimes throughout the day it will shift to #2 or #4, but that's not too bad considering there are over tens of thousands of books on Kindle. Again, thank you to Jessica and her company for making this happen!!
