A Year Filled with Blessings!

Who would have thought that 2018 would bring about such wonderful growth for Higher Ground Books & Media!  At the beginning of the year, I had a couple of goals for our little publishing company.  One, I wanted to sign two new authors.  Two, I wanted to publish at least five new titles.  These were fairly conservative goals and I wasn't sure we would be able to accomplish either of them.  Things were slow at the beginning of the year.  Lots of starts and stops.  A few sour grapes along the way.  Some unfortunate incidents with less than reputable individuals who were not dealing above board.  And a few months of weary soul-searching about whether or not it even made sense to keep going.  And then, suddenly...a breakthrough.

I prayed and prayed for God to help me figure out the direction I needed to take.  And He delivered the most awesome message to me.  He said, "Trust Me."  And in the midst of conflict and disappointment, I handed it all over to Him once again and…

New from Charlotte Hopkins!

Books from Higher Ground is happy to announce the release of Everything You Wanted to Know About the Heroes in Blue by Charlotte Hopkins. 

The wall between society and those with the potential to cause harm is made up of the men and women in blue. Lining the pages of this book is a tribute to their endless hours, hidden pain, and tears shed in silence. They protect a community that curses them one day and then thanks them the next. This selfless act is done daily by heroes who never ask for or expect a "thank you." They just want to protect and serve the innocent. They long to do their part in keeping society safe for the rest of us. The media often showcases them in a negative and violent manner.

I would like to know....Where is the media when these officers are looking in the tear-filled eyes of abused children or consoling a struggling couple about to break down emotionally? Where is the media when the officers have fallen and their lives succumb to injuries from people w…
