Summary

Motherhood is an impossible balancing act between love and fear. 
Giving Birth to Motherhood will heal your birth story through writing. A mixture of essays and writing prompts break the process down into baby steps and address concerns from different perspectives. This all culminates in catharsis: finding relief from strong emotions. You will create a birth story you can be proud of, or one that you can burn in a fire and never think of again. The point is, it will be out of your head and down on paper where you can begin to move on. 
Your motherhood journey deserves a good foundation. Let’s start the healing you need to build upon. 
  
Amie McCracken edits and typesets books for self-published authors. Four months after her son was born, she sat down with a journal and wrote her birth story, discovering more through that process than she could have ever imagined. She felt compelled to bring that same healing to other mothers through a book like this.

    I went home and took a long hot bath and prepared myself for her. I wanted my body to be perfect when I undressed this evening. It was as if I was preparing myself for a sacrifice to a goddess. And in a way, I was. 
     
    When I had determined that I was more than presentable to her, I left my home, got into my car and proceeded on my way over to her house. I was a few minutes early. I looked at my watch and it was 6:57 p.m.  
     
    I had noticed when I drove up that all the curtains were closed and all the lights were off. It appeared to me that no one was home. After parking my car in her driveway, I got out and walked towards her door. I noticed a paper taped to the door and as I got closer, I noticed large bold letters that read, “COME IN. THE DOOR IS OPEN.” 
     
    I checked my watch. It was now 6:59. I waited until it was exactly 7:00 and then I opened the door nervously and walked inside. It was completely dark inside. After walking inside more, I noticed a glow from a room near the hallway.

What we do in the evening can affect our night’s sleep, disturbing our sleep patterns and dreams. Last in the Evening is Osho talking on a variety of subjects specially selected for the evening. It gives you a different option for ending your day, a taste of meditation that can carry you through the night.Simply find time in the evening to sit quietly, be with yourself, and read the suggested passage. The extracts here, and in the companion volume First in the Morning, are taken from intimate one-on-one talks with Osho, and he suggested this compilation of his insights on a variety of subjects that include the nature of bliss, joy, and meditation.Whether you are familiar with meditation or a newcomer to the inner world, these two invaluable books, separately or together, can make a real difference to how you approach each day, and your life.

    Dunwoody Hall, first mentioned in Chas Scott's ‘Jenny and John Series’ of books, is owned by Mdme. Chastain.  The book details her early life, growing up in London’s East End, living in poverty and squalor in an uncaring world and trying desperately to scrape by and make a life for herself.
    
    She develops an astute notion of the ways of men from an early age as she learns to fight off the unwelcome attentions of her mother’s boyfriends.  She goes to work in an East End brothel where she meets a girl who will become her lifelong friend and who introduces her to the sensuous, addictive, art of BDSM and FemDom.
    
    She meets Frank, her soul mate, and together they build a business empire of brothels and dungeons throughout London and the south east.  Then tragedy strikes and Elizabeth is lost for a while.  Dunwoody Hall becomes her means to start again.
    
    Staffed by sissy maids, Mdme. Chastain turns the old Hall into the ‘must goto’ Spa Resort for dominant ladies where their sissies are put to work to serve.

    Bronze Winner for the 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards in the category of Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans Non-Fiction
    
    Foregrounding the voices of transgender and non-binary people, this honest and insightful book is a compilation of the voices of those who have decided to undergo transition - both male-to-female and female-to-male. Drawing on over one hundred interviews with individuals, the book details the diverse experiences and challenges faced by those who transition, exploring a range of topics such as hormone treatments; reassignment surgeries; coming out; sex and sexuality; physical, emotional and mental health; transphobia; discrimination; and hate crime, as well as highlighting the lives of non-binary individuals and those who cross-dress to form a wider understanding of the varied ways in which people experience gender.
    
    This powerful book is an ideal introduction to those keen to understand more about contemporary trans issues as well as those questioning their own gender identity.
