Staying Alive: A Woman’s Essential Guide to Living Safely

Posted on


Sadly, 1 in 3 Women Will Be a Victim.
Vow to not be a victim then act to make it so.

Where are you right now—at work, home, shopping center, coffee shop, nightclub, restaurant, on a trip, in a hotel, in an elevator, headed to your hotel room, walking a street, jogging, in your bedroom, sitting alone in your car, at a stop sign or traffic light, underground parking garage or placing groceries in your car?

It’s a long question but just go with it.
Do you feel safe? Are you truly safe? 
Be honest. It’s a long question but just go with it.
Do you feel safe? Are you truly safe? Be honest.

Unfortunately, statistics on violence against women are more and more alarming, despite efforts to reduce the numbers. If you are a woman 21 or older, chances are nearly 1 in 3 you will experience a random or domestic, violent attack in our lifetime. Many women are at unusually high risk of serious injury or murder. In many cases, the victim knows her attacker. This is why this invaluable eBook is essential to being Alert, Aware, and Armed with information that just may save your life.

You have seen the headlines:

You have watched the TV news footage of a woman violently attacked while jogging, walking in a parking garage, leaving a mall, while on vacation or while sleeping in her own bed. You have seen these horrific stories, shook your head in disgust and vowed to be more cautious. Then…what?

Perhaps you’ve munched on snacks, while watching ‘Law & Order’’— stories ripped from the headlines, and felt completely safe. Later, you returned to “business as usual.” And so it goes until, may God forbid, the victim is you or someone you know.

As we repeatedly point out in “Staying Alive: A Woman’s Essential Guide To Living Safely,’” you are your first line of defense. We pull no punches in giving women the facts, the tools, and the means to protect and defend themselves.

Our goal is to enlighten and empower. We dedicate this work to all potential victims of violence, but especially women. This book is not intended to frighten you unless fear is what it takes to encourage you to protect yourself.

Let’s face it: whether we are or are not individually targeted for victimization, predators often perceive that we are.

Thieves, victimizers, and predators go to work everyday; they do not discriminate by age, race or religion; they do not respect walls or fences, and they do not care whether you are male or female. However, rightfully or wrongly, women are more often preferred targets. I know this, personally. Understand one thing: your job is to return home safely every night. Period!

Do not be misled by the stereotypical image of what a criminal or potential predator looks like. An attacker/predator may look as harmless as your neighbor, banker, minister, deliveryman, mechanic, plumber, Congressman or even your doctor. Professional predators may disarm with a smile or even a kind gesture. Remember serial killer, Theodore Bundy had the charm, good looks, demeanor, and appearance that fooled many women victims.

Staying Alive: A Woman’s Essential Guide To Living Safely focuses on helping you protect yourself in public and in private venues. You must always be AWARE.

AmazonList Launches Free “Books to Film” Service For Authors

Posted on

Is Your Book Ready For Film?
Before you go broke listing your books on sites that flood Facebook with alluring ads to authors, but never to producers, keep reading.

You’ve seen blockbuster movies adapted from books: Gone With The Wind, Harry Potter, Roots, and countless more. 

We know there are great stories out there waiting to be found. As the film industry has grown, so has the search for captivating, original stories, which is why we began myBooksToFilm. We want to help you – the author and storyteller – get their words seen and read. We are authors, too. There are many vultures out their preying on authors.

And is Free

Don’t go broke showcasing your books/screenplays.

There are services out there whose goal appears to simply get authors to pay to showcase, and do little to attract producers and directors to your books/screenplays. Don’t go broke showcasing your books/screenplays.

MBTF is Free. Our platform, brought to you by AmazonList Author Network, is designed to empower authors worldwide who desire to have their literary efforts be shared with film-lovers everywhere.

Whether you’re published or self-published, represented by an agency, an agent, or yourself, we’ve created an equal opportunity for all.

It is important to note that, because these things are subjective, we believe it is the reader – the producer/director/studio who must be the final arbiter of what suits their needs. What we think does not matter. To make this point clear, I only have to mention one book in particular: Harry Potter. Harry Potter was rejected by hundreds of publishers and finally accepted by Scholastic.

So, here is what we will do at

• Provide a structured format for you to follow
• Provide examples, based up actual books by actual authors – including a Pulitzer-nominated author.
• Provide space for you to present your work.
• Your Listings Never Expire, unlike at Taleflick
• We Promote our site to film producers, agents and studios, without conditions that they include us in some back-end-profit scheme.
• And you get all this by being a member of AmazonList Author Network  – a bold new social network for authors dedicated to promoting authors and their works 24/7/365. There you blog, upload your images, start discussions, publish articles, and much more.

MyBooksToFilm is a superhighway creating a pathway between authors, producers, production companies, and studios.

We Help You Bring Your Stories to Life. Before you pay $90-$499 per year/ per book,
