Pearly Gates Publishing, LLC (PGP) is a Christian book publisher based out of Houston, Texas. The vision of PGP sprang to life in early January 2015 after God gave Angela Edwards (CEO) the mission to bring to the world authors whose desires encompass keeping their God-given inspiration in their literary works. Founded in February 2015, the business has continued to blossom into a sought-after publishing house for both current and up-and-coming Christian authors worldwide. PGP’s youngest authors are ages eight and ten, and the oldest is 72.
Pearly Gates Publishing, LLC is a low-cost publishing option for those individuals seeking to spread their messages of empowerment, inspiration, and education. Since its inception, PGP has produced numerous Amazon Best Sellers – with two making the coveted number one spot. A variety of topics from PGP’s authors include (but are not limited to): Faith, Bullying, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Autism, and Domestic Violence.
The Battle-Scar Free Movement – an all-out effort to ERADICATE domestic violence – is a product of Angela’s past victimization. What started as a call to abuse survivors to co-author a book entitled “God Says I Am Battle-Scar Free: Testimonies of Abuse Survivors”, it has since grown into a movement of individuals who are lovingly known as Trumpeters for Change. Change begins with one: One thought – One person – One action. Change begins with YOU!
When did you first start writing?
Many of my fondest memories of writing actually date back to grammar school. It seems I have always had a love for writing, as I often won awards for my creative writing stories from that era and continue to do so until this very day.
What's the story behind your latest book or series of books?
The Battle-Scar Free series is a project that is purpose-filled. As a domestic violence survivor, I have a passion to help other victims through the healing process. A significant part of that process is being able to "talk" about the experience without being overly-attached to the emotions associated with the abuse. It has often been said, "There is POWER in your words". Enter the Battle-Scar Free series! The co-authors who transparently share their stories - in all of their rawness - realize there is healing for both them AND the readers, as they become empowered through the testimonies of survival. No two stories are alike, yet there IS one commonality: We WERE victims, but now we ARE survivors!
Over 60 stories by survivors of domestic violence and abuse are shared between all four books. No two stories are alike—yet each is shared with the prayer that the reader is encouraged to stand and say "NO MORE!" to abuse!
In this fifth installment of the Battle-Scar Free series, 15 individuals—women and men—pour words of encouragement into the lives of the readers. Their transparent testimonies are captivating, with each word purposefully penned to speak to the hearts, minds, and souls of others who are victims or survivors of abuse in any form.
