My name is Heather Heaton, and I am a new Alabama author. Please consider helping me introduce my story, a series of ebooks entitled “Her Letters from Prison”, to your friends.
My new ebook series ("Her Letters from Prison") is an inspirational resource for reading pleasure, review, contemplation, and discussion. My own testimony is: "God changed my life in prison!"
"Her Letters from Prison" (Parts 1 & 2) will validate your inquisitive thoughts and doubts about what goes on in women’s prisons (It is what it is!); and it can justify the efforts spent toward women’s prison ministries. These two ebooks can be a motivational (tell-it-like-it-is) resource for drug rehab/prevention and reentry programs, especially when combined with "Her Letters from Prison – Part 4: Recycled – Second Time Around".
"Her Letters from Prison" is a non-fiction, inspirational, romance ebook series; with the original letters (with prison art) included as images for authenticity. My story describes how female offenders are perceived and handled (often abused) in the criminal justice system. The story continues (Part 4) to describe my first two years of re-entry back into the real world and how she ended a destructive narcissistic-codependent relationship.
"Her Letters from Prison: Women-in-Prison" (Part 3) contains two PowerPoint presentations prepared for the University of Alabama/Women's Studies "Women in Prison" conference. Both presentations are based on Parts 1 & 2 of my story; and they are entitled "Women-in-Prison (Almost Invisible)" and "Women-in-Prison (Facts/Myths)". Also, my personal testimony is included in the Part 3 publication.
You can go to http://www.heather-heaton.com, and click on a direct link to my Amazon.com and/or Smashwords "book pages" for “Her Letters from Prison”. Alternatively, you can visit my “author pages”:
My ebooks are also available in paperback format. The paperback book ("Her Letters from Prison") may be obtained by contacting me through my website "contact" form. The paperback book contains Part 1, 2, and 3 ebooks. "Her Letters from Prison - Part 4" will be published as its own paperback book soon.
Also, I have a new ebook series entitled "Women-in-Prison Short Stories" available now on Amazon.com and Smashwords. This series is intended to help troubled teens understand the real, true prison environment in terms of the personalities, crimes, and relationships inmates must deal with on a daily basis. The message is, "You don't want to go to prison!" These true short stories describe the relationships between individual inmates with severe crime(s) and other inmates who must react to and deal with those who committed severe and often violent crimes. The short stories are being published now as individual ebooks; but eventually, they will be grouped together and published as a single composite ebook and perhaps a paperback.
You are invited to an online screening of the novel "Soul Baby" by author, writer and producer Joseph H. James, Jr. In the multimedia section, you will be able to listen to the free audio of the prologue, view the sultry music video of one of the theme songs sung by Broadway star ( original Rent cast) Byron Utley featuring top model and actress Brigid Turner and view the soulful book trailer. Soul Baby is available in paperback and all the major eBooks formats. Please check out the beautiful website at:

Thanks! I joined. I like the bookshelf. I need to explore your work. I didn't realize you were a writer. Duh....feel like a doofus! My husband got my Kindle for me last August when I had to quit working and was at home all the time. That's when I discovered the world of Christian fiction. My mom had been giving me her books which were mostly the Amish romances. Those were okay, but I like mystery and suspense better. Anyway -- all of that to say that I'm not familiar with all of you authors out there in the genre yet. I look forward to reading you.
Have a blessed day,
Thanks so much for accepting my friend request. Great to be sharing books with you. Not sure of your favorite genre might be, but if you like a good mystery, my book Forbidden Steps has been getting raves on Amazon.com as well as 5 stars across the board. So if murder mysteries intrigue you, please feel free to check it out.
Again, good to be your friend and please keep in touch, Ed
The world is not as just, not as loving, not as whole as we know it can and should be. But the coming of CHRIST and his presence among us—as one of us—give us reason to live in hope: that light will shatter the darkness, that we can be liberated from our fears and prejudices, that we are never alone or abandoned. God sent JESUS not just to save us, God came down so He could forever be with us *You are a friend of God ~ Merry Christmas*
Lord take this cup away from me....
"I can't son, it belongs to you"
But Lord this cup is too much for me to bear!
"You can handle it, Jesus drank from the cup"
But Lord I aint Jesus!
"But He lives in YOU!"
But Lord I am weak!
"His strength works best when you’re weak"
But Lord have you seen what's in my cup?
"Yeah I know I put it in there!"
But Lord there is sickness in my cup!
"And I called you to heal"
But Lord there is confusion in my cup!
"And I called you to teach"
But Lord there is pain in my cup!
"And I called you spread my Word"
But Lord why do I have to drink THIS cup?
”Because I want you to act like my Son!”
Last question Lord....Does everyone have to drink this cup?
"Everyone has to taste their reality"
