The Creativity Is In eEdgeMedia LLC's Product(s): Over the course of 19 years, I've created a small book press i.e. publishing company on a shoestring budget, where my characters are truly diverse, reflecting more the world we live in, rather than some sheltered author's internal mindscape. The writing, of course, is excellent and truly imaginative, with timeless, authentic stories, memorable personages and yet, socially relevant issues and plotting in each juicy, enjoyable read. Nothing is prosaic, or predictable. What my publishing company needs is greater visibility.You see, the stories we read, the narratives we enjoy paying attention to, becomes reality... It's time we "saw" things from the perspective of people who do not necessarily always look exactly like we do, may not come from our backgrounds -- but nonetheless, in getting into their heads, we normalize them--like us, they're regular PEOPLE. And no, the Indian woman with a sari does not always speak in Punjab, nor does the white female speak in sentences that sound like they end in a question? --nor does the black guy always speak "ghetto"... When regressive, stereotypical images are removed from literature, we are truly able to see each others' souls and appreciate the unique gifts that we each bring to the table. The timing could not be more crucial. Right now, we're all either floating this boat, or sinking this ship. Together. -- Author: Valda DeDieu. Profile at amazon.com/author/valda ...

REVIEWS: 

"I couldn't put your book down, purchased all of them at once-Uncover What's Hidden, The Gold Standard, all the bundles. It was so profound, so deep, I felt like I could see it, feel it. I hated when it ended. I was outraged over the child abuse and cheering for the heroine, and so very happy for everyone in the end. By the way, Theresa rocks, (though I have been unable to finish her story yet." (UNEDITED) shay777  DECEMBER 17, 2010 04:38 PM                  --AND--

..."I have started reading Bloodpact and wow that is a tough opening chapter. Heartbreaking! I also see what you mean about "sensual". The scene of Cliff and Laird in the Caribbean creates quite a visual in the reader's brain. I look forward to seeing how Laird and Cliff deal with their situation, and what becomes of Father Minkelbrink." SEAN, INKWATER PRESS.

Dear Valda
I am writing to let you know what a deep impression your book, Long Past Dead had on me. The idea that trafficked children can be being abused as we go on with our every day lives left me feeling sick to the core. As I walked home I thought (unlikely as it is) that, just possibly one of the apartments which I passed could be harbouring  cruelty of which I was unaware. I've provided a review (probably not very well written) of your book in my blog which can be found at www.kevinmorris101.wordpress.com.I am blind and read your book using the text to speech facility on my Kindle. I was very pleased that you have not disabled this facility as, unfortunately some authors/publishers ask Amazon to remove text to speech which means that blind and dyslexic people can not access such titles. I hope you will continue to make sure that all of your titles can be read using text to speech on the Kindle.Kind regards,Kevin" (UNEDITED)
