Sound the Alarm!
Finally, there is a comprehensive book on sexual sin with real solutions.


In Secret Sex Wars: A Battle Cry For Purity, author Robert S. Scott, teams up with seven others to tackle and dispel societal myths and to proclaim the truth as presented in the Bible concerning sexual sin.

The targeted audience for this practical guide is African American Christian males, struggling with sexual perversions such as, fornication, pornography, homosexuality, and adultery. However, the
Biblical principles outlined are not limited to ethnicity, but to all who believe in the delivering power of Jesus Christ.

Where other books conclude with identifying the immorality plaguing our communities, Secret Sex Wars: A Battle Cry For Purity, takes the reader by the hand and walks him through the battlefield and into his deliverance.

This book is a must read for every Christian male!

Sexual Abuse: Gag Order Has Been Lifted

Sexual Abuse, The Gag Order Has Been Lifted

Detroit, MI – In her bold new book The Enemy Between My Legs author, Stephanie L. Jones, tackles the tough subject of child sexual abuse. In what Disilgold Magazine and The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers calls, “A well written revelation and a must read for every man and woman,” readers are uninhibitedly allowed into the heart and soul of a sexual abuse survivor. Jones shares how over seven years of child molestation, which began at age five, haunted her and continuously resurfaced in her teenage and adult life in the forms of promiscuity, substance abuse and difficulties in maintaining interpersonal relationships.

“It’s very difficult to tell a young person not to have sex once they’ve been sexually abused. No one could tell me not to. My first sexual experience was at age five. I had been touched, kissed, and fondled so much as a child that by age of 13, I didn’t want it to stop,” says Jones. 

Jones is not alone. Shockingly, one in three females and one in five males are sexually abused. According to the organizations Darkness to Light and, the effects of sexual abuse extend far beyond the years in which it actually takes place and ends. What’s even more shocking is that studies also reveal that 90% of sexual abuse cases occur at the hands of a family member, close family friend, or trusted leader.

• 66% of teen pregnancies and abortions are preceded by sexual assault.
• 96% of prostitutes were sexual abuse victims.
• 75% of rapists were sexual abuse victims.
• 60% of children who experience abuse and neglect are more likely to be arrested.
• Sexual abuse victims often suffer self-esteem, health, financial and weight problems.
“Sexual abuse is a taboo subject. No one wants to talk about it,” says Jones. “When it is discussed people tend to reference internet predators, neighborhood pedophiles and strangers lurking in the park. But most sexual abuse takes place right in our homes between fathers, daughters, mothers, siblings, uncles, aunts, and other family members. We need to address what’s happening in our very own families!”

At times the book was somewhat painful to write because of the memories she had to summons up, but it was something she felt compelled to do. With this book Jones turned the negative experiences of her childhood into a manual of self defense for parents and other caretakers seeking to protect their children. It will assist adults who were victims of sexual abuse in understanding how those experiences might be affecting their lives today, as well as serve as a self-help guide for those seeking freedom from the bondage of their past.    

Stephanie L. Jones is a highly sought-after speaker for schools, churches, and organizations. Having suffered over years of sexual abuse, she knows the effects that it can have on a victim’s life.  Contact 877.832.6575,, or visit

‘Hope’, ‘change’ have impact beyond presidential stump speeches
Author gives strategies for Americans to deal with their own personal woes

SHREVEPORT, LA – “Hope” and “change” dominate the campaign trail these days, as candidates debate whether the words are about substance or just show, but these are actually two important words that are essential for this country’s growth as well as the growth of individuals and families, said author Monica Carter Tagore.

 “‘Hope’ and ‘change’ may be bandied about quite a bit thanks to this campaign season, but these words are actually key to any progress we are to make – whether on a national or global level, or on an individual level,” said Tagore, newspaper columnist and author of Zoom Power: Your Key to Hitting Your Personal, Business and Financial Targets. “And right now, a lot of people desperately need hope, if their lives are to see any real change.”
 Tagore points to a worsening of family finances, rising foreclosure rate and a high divorce rate as social elements that can be affected to some degree by hope. “If more people had hope, we’d not be in the state we are.”

Many people give up on their circumstances because they see no possibility they can become better. Hope, though, Tagore said, inspires people to find ways to change their own circumstances, rather than wait for others to do it.

“Many of these people suffer more than necessary because they truly do not have any hope that things will get better. But when we can help them see the possibilities of change, then we can inspire them to make strides to create those changes. Those strides can include seeking better jobs, completing their education, launching businesses – anything to change the status quo.”

  Presidential candidate Barack Obama has given new prominence to the words “hope” and “change,” and has inspired millions of people across the country to participate in the political process, some for the first time. “Obama has touched on something that is essential to the progress of the human condition, and that is ‘hope.'”

 Many skeptics discount the importance of hope, or decry its efficacy beyond a first blush of optimism, but Tagore said those who discount hope miss the point. “Hope isn’t about an unreasoned, naïve guess that things could somehow be different,” she said. “Instead, hope is about seeing the possibility of an opportunity – and then moving to take the opportunity.”

 It is the taking of the opportunity that creates the change, Tagore said. “Hope is our first glimpse that things can be different. Change is the manifestation of our belief. What happens between hope and change is our action, and that is essential.”

 Tagore helps people turn hopes into goals and goals into plans, in her book, Zoom Power: Your Key to Hitting Your Personal, Business and Financial Targets. She said it’s not that most people do not want a better life; it’s that they do not know how to create that better life.

 Hope is the number one ingredient to success – no matter how large or small the task. It also is the start of changing the lives of millions of Americans. “From first helping people to see hope in their situations, we can then help people educate themselves about the means they can take to make the changes they dream of making.”
 Tagore gives five ways individuals can take hope beyond rhetoric to make it a part of real change in their lives:

1. Examine the benefit of making the change you now see possible.
2.  Seek information to help you move toward realizing the hope-inspired goal.
3. Seek allies who can help you accomplish your goal.
4. Work on your own deficiencies – things you see as weaknesses — that stand between you and your goal.
5. Put into place a plan to use the information, allies and resources to create the change you seek.

By the time she was 22, Ayo Montgomery had been an expatriate, a wife, a mother and a widow. Twenty years later, she’s finally at a place of peace in her life. Her son is away at school in Florida. Her soap and body products business is flourishing. She doesn’t know what she’s missing until Bilal Abdul Salaam walks into her life.

Do you yearn for peace? Hope and reality for peace can be attained through your faith. If you desire to have peace, prepare yourself for a journey that shows the Holy Spirit directing the author of Finding Peace Through Faith – A Personal Experience, in the midst of daunting challenges.

Through the power of the supernatural, peace prevailed, which inspired and motivated Daphne Clarke to communicate that, indeed, God is a Master of the impossible.

You can discover that peace is possible even though contrary forces battle to prove otherwise; you can see that the teachings of Christ have great impact on manifesting His promises.

Brace yourself for the ride-it is one of faith and you too can receive peace, even when the woes of this world whistles whirlwinds on your horizon. Daphne Clarke is committed to exhorting, encouraging and motivating individuals to achieve their God-given destiny. She is the author of The Triumph of Louise Laurel & Successful Parenting/Nurturing: By the Hand of God.
