I'm enjoying a quiet afternoon on my patio contemplating the final chapters for The Porcupine Man. The narrative is written but the psychological summary is still bouncing around in my head. I hope to have the manuscript off to the publisher by the end of February. I'm excited to get some feedback from you about the relevance of the book's content to your experience after publication.  

For now, what do you think about my cover? Does it get your attention? Would it stand out on a bookstore shelf?
Do you like the choice of fonts, colors, graphics and title?

More insights occur as I complete the final sections of I'LL TAKE THOSE BOYS FROM YOU.  

I'm reaching a point of understanding about how we got here which helps me resolve the confusion of feelings I was having about my sons. It doesn't bring them back, but it helps me to understand why they've done the things they have done. 

Write your story! It's therapy. Don't allow all those pieces to bang around in your head. Write your story from the beginning. Include details and focus on the emotional meaning of each event to each of you and make sense of what's happened to you.

It's time to communicate!

I'LL TAKE THOSE BOYS FROM YOU IS finally with an editor. I'm planning to publish it shortly after Christmas. 

If you are like me, Christmas is one of the hardest days of the year. I'm always so relieved when it's 5 PM on the 25th of December. 

I loved celebrating Christmas every year until I realized my sons were gone for good. I had some difficult years between then and now, but I have gained some insights through rewriting this book. These insights have given me as much peace as it's possible to have while my sons are still estranged. I'll share more about that in future posts.

If you have comments or question, fire away. Let's talk.

I'm finishing the final chapters on my second novel, THE PORCUPINE MAN. It's the story of parental alienation written from the first-person perspective of the alienator. My goal is to help readers understand how a narcissist is created, how they view the world, and how they justify doing the things most of us can't believe a parent could do to their own child. This inability to believe a parent could act so selfishly toward their own child is what keeps us vulnerable to their manipulations and puts our innocent children in their control. What do you think? Let's talk.
