God inspired me to write this book to show people the miracles He is able to perform in our lives, by doing what we thought was impossible and bless you at the same time. So I pray that this book will be an encouragement and blessing to someone’s life who feel like they’re failures. In life can’t be put back together, or someone who believe their current situation can’t be turned around. I give all the glory to God because I couldn’t do it without Him.

“A must have for any film nut.”—Details Peter Bogdanovich, award-winning director, screenwriter, actor and critic, interviews 16 legendary directors over a 15-year period. Their richly illuminating conversations combine to make this a riveting chronicle of Hollywood and picture making. Join him in conversations with: Robert Aldrich • George Cukor • Allan Dwan • Howard Hanks • Alfred Hitchcock • Chuck Jones • Fritz Lang • Joseph H. Lewis • Sidney Lumet • Leo McCarey • Otto Preminger • Don Siegel • Josef von Sternberg • Frank Tashlin • Edgar G. Ulmer • Raoul Walsh NOTE: This edition does not include photographs. Praise for Who the Devil Made It “Illuminating . . . These were (and sometimes are: a few yet breathe) men rooted in history as much as in Hollywood. Their collected memories make the past look fearfully rich beside a present that is poverty-stricken in everything except money.”—The New Yorker “Bogdanovich is one of America’s finest writers on the cinema. . . . Thank goodness [his] Who the Devil Made It has come along to remind us that films and writing about film were, at one time, focused on the work and not strictly on the bottom line.”—The Boston Globe “A treasure trove on the craft of directing.”—Newsday “Monumental . . . The directors’ reminiscences about technique, working methods, sources of ideas, and relationships with actors and studios are thoroughly entertaining.”—Publishers Weekly “A fine achievement that helps illuminate the art and craft of some remarkable directors . . . There are plenty of revealing anecdotes.”—Kirkus Reviews

If you've ever experienced stage fright, this is a "must read" dissertation on the subject of controlling one's emotions during concert performances. You will find methods in this book, circumventing this debilitating problem, enabling you to find the confidence necessary to be able to give competent and enjoyable piano recitals in public. You will also discover why this method, which was so effective during the days of the great composers and performers of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, was so adamantly recommended to colleagues and their own piano students. In fact, some of these great composers went so far as to be very critical of performers avoiding the old fashioned method of performance for the more theatrical musical presentation introduced by Franz Liszt. Whatever the case is, keep in mind that "Stage fright can be hazardous to one's ability to perform in public". This book should give you an optional method to get the job done, so to speak, and make public performance a joy, rather than a terrifying experience you may never want to repeat during your life time.

I Made It This Far is about a woman who went through so much disrespect, abuse, and hard times in her life. Angelique E. Constance wanted to share her own horrors and the triumphs, as there are a lot of other women who are going through it or have encountered the same childhood experience as she has. I wanted to share that even though it took me a while to empower myself to the point that I could finally take control of my life, once I did, it was the best feeling ever. My story will show people how they can get out of that vicious cycle and make themselves feel valued, not only by themselves but by the people that we value. We may feel that there are no way out of those life experiences. If I can grow spiritually and heal within, you too can do the same. You will find the person who you want to be. You can have the life you have always wanted for yourself. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. We just need to take that first step and be accountable to ourselves. It can be disheartening at times, but with faith, hard work, self-reflection, and the belief that you can heal within, everything is possible. You need to decide to let go and let God take care of you, while you take the necessary steps for the betterment of the life you so richly deserve. Believe within always.
