This subject brings up memories. about
8 yrs ago I was searching for books on my sons mental disablities. Wanting to hear from a parents point of view. Couldn't find any. Emailed a few publishers with my need on this subject. The responses came flying back to me. I was being offered publishing preference if I wrote a book. I remember this as if it were yesterday. No this is not a fantasy but real life.
I started writing the book got the outline done. Emailed it in and was accepted. I got through the first three chapters emailed it in. (its the steps they require) Then my world fell apart. My mother died suddenly one night. CHF took her just hours affter we all finished watching PING and disney movie. We lived in a HUGE house, the attic was remodeled into a 1 bedroom apartment with an outside staircase to their door. She died in our house at 2:30 am with my daugher watching out the window at the age of 8. It tore the family to shredds.
My book went into dust at that point.
The book covered everything from my life in a dysfunctional family, incest, fostercare abuse, marriage domestic violence, and then to deal with my sons rage disorders. If I wrote one now it would include my Chronic Pain issues.
Every now and then I think I will finish this book even though all the information is on a floppy disk..lol But between work, pain and still my son I have no time to even breath.
Chutz thank you for posting this topic I had all but forgot about
my publishing dreams.
I had always loved to write and read. I had a natural talent in highschool and college for putting words together and telling a story. I set the grading curve on many essays..
