Hi James! It was a pleasure speaking with you the other day about your book projects. As I told you on the phone, I found your story to be a fascinating one of perseverance and overcoming obstacles to accomplish your dreams. Your book holds the reader's attention and the story compels one to keep on reading - which is exactly what an author wants to accomplish!Hi James!

As a professional editor and proofreader, I have worked on thousands of pages of manuscripts at various levels of writers' abilities. I've been doing this full-time, since 2009. Each book gives me joy to work on, taking it from a manuscript to an actual sellable book.

When James Welcome came to me with his manuscript of "Boy to Man," never having written a word professionally before this, I was intrigued by the subject, and then I saw his raw writing talent. It comes through in every page of this book. He depicts his childhood living conditions with such stark clarity that you feel that you are with him, the whole time. Whether he is taking a shower with a PVC pipe as a showerhead or standing on his grandmother's rotted bathroom floor, so he could see the ground underneath, you are there. As he grows up and starts dealing drugs as a child, you want to grab him from the pages and rescue him from his life.

Incredibly engrossing story of a young man's life in a Florida "hood" and how he came out of it, this is a not-to-be missed story, and I look forward to working with him on his following stories. I whole-heartedly recommend it.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Rothenberger

Product Description

I’m a married father of 9, 6 girls 3 boys. From Ocala, Fl, raised in Ocklawaha, Fl. My book is about me coming up in a less fortune place. It’s basically about the different things I went through as I grew up. How my mom and grandma struggled to keep food, clothes and a roof over me and my sister’s head. How we lived in an old wooden house my granddad built that was about to fall apart. With no hot water, and a Pvc pipe for a shower head. You could see through the floor between the toilet and the bath tub from the water leaking. Sitting on the toilet was like a roller coaster ride, hoping you don’t fall through. But, hey, grandma and ma pulled through they did the best they could. We never went hungry or did without. I was young and wanting to help. So, what to do, I thought, all that’s around me is drug dealers, nobody going to school. They are thinking school’s just another way of slavery. Just a way to teach me away to work for another man, build his dream. So, 9 times out of 10 if you are around something long enough, eventually you’re going to want to try it. I watched these people make quick easy money. My family needed it, so I went in and since my dad is already in it, just being on the other side made it easier. So, I started making money and taking care of my family. A typical kid with a hard head, I was. I summed it up, if I told you everything I would have never finished this book. But my going to prison changed my outlook on my life, made me want to do more in life. I hope you guys enjoy my story and share it with family and friends.
