Creative & Gifted Writer

Jill-Capri Simms - Author & Owner of Plumb Line Consulting, LLC

"Author Charles R. Butts, Jr.'s time has come! He is a wonderfully creative and gifted writer with the ability to captivate his readers.  His inaugural literary work, "For Only A Season", demonstrates Charles' skill as a fiction writer and storyteller by smoothly drawing the reader in with essential details and imagery. "Running in Plain Sight & Other Stories" is his sophomore work and displays his knack for quickly engaging and intriguing the reader.  Charles undoubtedly leaves his readers wanting more of his literary talent.

 

It has also been my pleasure and the audiences' delight having Charles as a platform presenter at our 2016 and 2017 Authors' Showcase conferences.

 

I look forward to collaborating with him on more literary activities and events."

 

Great Stories!!

Kenya - Soul Sistahs Book Club

Running In Plain Sight & Other Short Stories

"Wow! This was an awesome group of short stories! Four stories, four men in different stages of life, trying to deal with circumstances and situations to the best of their ability. These stories were well written and included very interesting characters. This was a very quick read and a great way to kick off my 2018 year of reading. Kudos to the author!"

Great Southern African American Story!

For Only A Season

"For Only a Season brings back many memories of growing up in the South. The main character returns home to assume the leadership of his family. The authentic African American South is woven throughout the story. Life`s greatest mysteries are masterfully treated by the author. Family and romantic love are blended well in the story. The author has created a classic about family, love and going home."

The Floods Were Examples Of Love & Joy

John H. Alexander

For Only A Season

 

"2016 was a year where many of my friends were going through a lot of difficult issues--marital problems, blended family troubles, financial struggles and other trials were some of the troubling issues that these families were facing.

After tons of prayers and compassion, I was introduced to Charles Butts's refreshing novel, "For Only A Season". This book invited me into the lives of the Flood family. As I read this book on my lunch break at work, I began to slow down and read a chapter everyday. I wanted to savor every delightful moment that portrayed what I feel God intended for generations for all Christian families. The Floods were examples of love, joy, peace, and strength. There was respect and loyalty to the men and there was love and reverence to the women.

The Floods were owners of a funeral home. As a funeral director, I was also impressed with Mr. Butts's knowledge of the funeral industry and how honorable he portrayed the business in his book. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You Mr. Butts for helping me peek into your world and to end 2016 on a good note!  I believe there's a hope and with God there is an answer to making our families better. This is a MUST read!"
