Today is a day I will remember forever. It’s Release Day for “Beyond Recovery”

Today is a day I will remember forever; 11-11-16. After 2 1/2 years writing, editing, agonizing, fighting off self-doubt and insecurity, and then asking for advice from my author wife, and other key friends, I have finally come to the finish line…Today marks the is the official publish date of my very first book, Beyond Recovery a Journey of Grace, Love and Forgiveness.

The outpouring of support from family and close friends has been tremendous. Many have already pre-ordered their copies-Thank you!

Despite all good intentions,  as the release date approached, I’ve had to distance myself from a sea of inner and public negativity, doubt and insecurity,  as powers of the universe  seemed to throw me curve balls as I neared the completion. Despite theses challenges,  I have  managed to lean on a solid group of friends to help get me back to center. In a nut shell, I found the grace, love and forgiveness that are a common thread in the tapestry of tales and experiences included in Beyond Recovery. I  was, once again, reminded that life is a dress rehearsal and about progress, not perfection.

There is so much in this book. It’s not just a memoir about a recovered alcoholic, its about things I have learned the hard way; life lessons if you will. My hope is that through some of the stories I share, may in some way, offer a modicum of hope for you or someone you love.

Writing a book about my sordid drunken past and my journey through recovery and then sharing it with the world is something that, as my good friend JB, said, “is a little ballsy.”

I agree. But I wouldn’t be here if not for courage. It took courage to be willing to say I had  problem with alcohol in the first place. It took even more courage to ask for help.

One thing I have learned over the years is that the sweetness of life happens when we take a chance on our selves and face our inner demons and move forward anyway.

I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please leave a review on Amazon.

Today is a day to be grateful, thank you!

Here is where you can get it for now.
