One Woman's Journey From Prison to Purpose
When you lose everything that you once held dear and hit rock bottom, climbing your way back to the top can seem daunting and impossible. For Jessica Roberts, her strong determination, work ethic and belief in God propelled her past her circumstances.

A promising life was brought to a screeching halt and reduced to a ten-year federal prison sentence.
Thankfully, after unimaginable judicial system torture and lies, Jessica Roberts was actually sentenced to 27 months.
An Author's Interview
Jessica Nicole Robert's (JNR) first book signing to showcase her book was a phenomenal success. We followed her through completion of her manuscript to publication of her book. Along the way, we noticed she was diligently working alongside of us on the launching of her book/brand.
When she sent us pictures from the event, it sparked a conversation that we want to share with the author's supporters and future writers. This journey was one that exemplifies Jessica's drive and determination for excellence.
We're so proud of you!

Butterfly Typeface Publishing (BTP)
BTP: How did it feel autographing books?
JNR: Signing books was a surreal experience. I was proud, yet humbled over how my friends, family, and supporters deemed my signature essential!
Being An Author
BTP: Did you ever dream you'd be published?
JNR: Never in a million years did I dream I'd be a published author! I'm still in disbelief that I wrote Triumphant (with ease) in only five months!
BTP: What was the best thing about meeting your supporters?
JNR: The best part about meeting supporters was how they received me and my story. It felt like I was giving them something they needed.
Dreams & Goals
BTP: You have an amazing work ethic. Have your sacrifices paid off?
JNR: Indeed they have! Everything I sacrificed, I poured into Triumphant, and the proof is in how well the book has been received.
BTP: What is your vision for the future of Triumphant!?
JNR: My vision for Triumphant is that it sells worldwide and ultimately makes it onto the big screen (a movie)!
Birthdays & Books
BTP: Triumphant was released on your birthday. What significance did that have for you?
JNR: The day was EPIC! It was simultaneously a birthday to remember and the beginning of my legacy!
How Did You Make It?
Many people who read my story ask me,
"How did you make it through that?"
Some say, "I don't know if I could have made it through the challenges you endured."
Honestly, I don't think I was strong enough initially.
However, the things I went through, the people I met, and the many times I had to humble myself, served to strengthen and mold me into the woman I am today.
By God’s grace and a morally sound upbringing, my experience made me better, not bitter. So, my answer to the question of how I made it through is this:
God had mercy!
My family was there!
I put in work!
I followed God's plan!

Now that I've gone through the fire, I realize I owe it to those behind me to offer what I've learned. The gifts I've been given are not for me to keep, but to pass on to others. The vehicles I choose are writing, speaking in person, and hosting a podcast.
