The saga continues … Bitter Root II is a Christian novel that exposes the real-life episodes of the characters, away from the church. Rachel Spearman was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, inherited from her father who became wealthy from his winery. Rachel found solace in her prearranged fortune and allowed her wealth to insulate her from the realities and struggles of others around her. She used her fortune to walk over others on the way to the top! But Rachel was using her wealth and success to mask abandonment, the trauma of rape, and demons of the past that still haunted her; that would wreak havoc in her life and those around her. She was weaving an indescribable web of lies, deception, selfishness, and abuse that hoarded bitterness.
Her attitude and demeanor seemed to plunge down a slippery slope, only to hit rock bottom! It caused undue turmoil in a once blissful marriage, family, and business! Greed and bitterness were at the root of her demise! Where will it end? Will she fall off the earth or will she bounce back, better than before? Rachel Spearman’s legacy that she inherited from her father, Antonio, was wealth. But will her legacy turn into bitterness because of greed fueled by the trauma of her past?

JJ Planter became the AKA for Jarvis Jimmy as a Church Planter. The background of JJ Planter's writing skills comes from approximately 40 years of public speaking and formal writing. His experience begins with writing sermons, articles, how-to booklets, instructional manuals, and writing for different genres from play productions to developing readings about organizing and strategizing for reaching out into the community.
In 2004 while serving as a Mission Developer (Church Planter), JJ Planter was struck with the idea of creating a different pulpit platform for getting the "Word" out there. While serving as a professor at Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC, in 2012, JJ Planter was enlightened on the lack of grammatical knowledge and writing skills of adult students and discovered a significant literacy problem within the urban culture. From that moment on, his conviction and drive were to put together the framework for JJ Planter Books Editing & Self Publishing and developing his "Writing with Flair" Grid Program-a writing industry/grammatical guide. JJ Planter Books launched in September of 2014 with the self-publishing of the founders' first book, "Season of Discontent" (A Visionaries True Confession).
JJ Planter Books is located in Charlotte, NC, and around the country through its online connection is a small editing/self-publishing service that offers budding/experienced authors a personal touch. Unlike the assembly line traditional/vanity publishers that see projects like numbers; JJ Planter Books personalizes service to the unique needs and vision of the author. The Editor-in-Chief says, "We are true self-publishers, which means you own the book and the process of producing your book. It's like you have edited, designed, and published your book because you have a 'say so' through the entire process from the beginning to the end of setting your price, commission for distributors and retailers. But we do all the complicated work of managing digital files and electronic processing."
As a BBB A+ accredited business, we provide high-quality work from our interfacing, interacting, interchanging editing process.
