We've All Been There: Tales of Tenacity Released

In 2014, I had a mental breakdown about the time that would have been my twenty-fifth anniversary.  I realized I had given half my life at the time to the same man and became overwhelmed with this thought.  I wrote a story about how I managed to make it through that many years married to a manic-depressive.  At first I only thought I wrote the story for myself but then I shared it with a few friends who believed the story would touch many lives who had been in a similar situation.  I had submitted it to one anthology but didn't make it in that one so submitted to another anthology and it was accepted.  Today, the release of We've All Been There: Tales of Tenacity has come to fruition. 

All the proceeds from the sales of this book are going to Project Semicolon which is a group that encourages those with mental illnesses to reach out and get help, no matter what form it comes in but not to feel like you are in this alone.  The stories in the book are by no means exclusive of situations that we have faced but are out there to also encourage others to know that they are not alone and they can make it through anything life has thrown their way.

If you would like to order a print copy from me, it will be a couple of weeks before I have copies to sell and I will sign my story for you.  Please feel free and email me at and reserve your copy.  If you would like to order directly from Amazon, please go here for the print book and here for the ebook.  Remember you are supporting a good cause as all the proceeds will go to Project Semicolon.  Thanks for all your support, not only for me but those who need some inspiration and encouragement out there.  E :)
