Breaking Free is now released!
It is released on the Amazon sites in paperback and kindle format. As most of my readers are in the U.S. and Canada I have included the links to the respective Amazon sites but Breaking Free can be found on other Amazon sites as well.
Johnny Cardinal grows up detesting white people. They condemn him because of his skin color. He succumbs to the circumstances he has no control over and becomes what they thought he was. His only regret – the disappointment in his mother’s eyes and missing his siblings’ lives.
Eric Thompson grows up affluent but desires the love his parents fail to give him. He makes mistakes trying to get it and entraps himself with his mistakes. His lackluster marriage is on the brink of death and it’s all his fault.
Their lives entwine when one man’s survival becomes another man’s charity case. But who is the one needing the charity?
Here is an excerpt from the book. Breaking Free Excerpt
I also plan to do a Goodreads giveaway soon and will keep you posted on that.
I would greatly appreciate your support. Go out and buy my novel!
In my last post, I talked about my last couple of weeks and how many things I’ve had going on. These past few weeks have also been a little crazy as far as my writing goes.
I have been getting a lot of attention (at least from my standpoint) about my book and the fact I wrote a book. Someone I know had come into the library about a month ago and talked about the book I wrote. Prior to this, I hadn’t told the people I work with about my book. Since the head librarian found out about my book, I finally got the courage to “donate” my book to the local library.
The library bought a second copy of my book this past week to set up a “display”.
This past week, the reeve (similar to a mayor) of our Rural Municipality (similar to a county in the States) came to the library and my boss mentioned to him about me writing a book. He was very excited about it and talked about it to one of his staff. Later in the week, he came in again and took some photos of me with my book. The next day, the staff he talked to about the book, phoned me at work and I participated in my first interview.
That was yesterday. Today, they posted the article. Read the Article Here.
It feels a little weird to be getting so much attention. I’m not sure if I like it yet but I know I might get used to it. I’ve never been one to like being in the spotlight so when I don’t know what to do with the attention. Maybe I’ll get used to it, although I don’t think I will ever get completely used to it.
Buenas tardes! Good afternoon! I hope this post finds everyone having a fine day. I have some exciting news or at least for me it’s exciting. I have a few books in the works.
I am currently working on a new novel which I am super excited about. I’ve been excited about it since I thought of the idea for this novel towards the end of last summer. However, it has been slow going in writing it because when I got the idea for the novel it was close to the end of summer and I went away back to college in the fall and didn’t really have time to write a whole lot aside from assignments. I am still excited about it even almost a year has past since the idea bloomed. It is my major project right now and I will continue working on it this summer but I have no time table as to when it will be done. I hope to update you on my progress in the coming months.
In the meantime, I am also working on putting out a revised edition of a book I wrote a few years ago about suicide and depression. I am hoping to have the book published by the end of the summer so you can hold me to it. I will also update you on the progress of this 2nd edition as well.
Another idea I’ve had but this one may take a while as well is publishing a short story/poetry anthology. This one is more just an idea for now but I plan to possibly put it into motion sometime in the coming years. For those who don’t know what an anthology is, it is a collection of various works, in this case short stories, poetry or both, in one book.
I also have plenty of other ideas of books I want to write but those will take a little longer as I don’t want to develop too many ideas at one time. I need to space myself out a little so I don’t get overwhelmed and end up writing none of them or losing the excitement I have for them.
That’s a little update from my writing desk to wherever this post finds you.
Today my book Love Unrealized is published. You can now buy it from Amazon as well as their kindle site. The links to Love Unrealized are as follows:

Unfortunately, it cannot be found on Amazon.ca which is the Canadian amazon which is where I’m from.
This is my first book that has been published and I’m excited about it, yet I know that it won’t necessarily be successful. I really wish it would be successful but I know that I have to keep the mindset of humility and know that not everyone will love my book but I hope that there will be some who do.
The book is special to me aside from it being my first published book. The inspiration for the story was my own life. It is more symbolic of my life than being factual. The main character though, does struggle with some of the same things that I struggle with. A lot of the symbolism in the book, may not be obvious and I may be the only one who gets all the symbolism behind everything unless I explain it but that is okay. I hope this story inspires people and may help people who have low self-esteem who will be able to feel along with Alexa, the main character.
