First Book (about Coming Out in the South) gets published on Tuesday! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ

Surfโ€™s up, shirtโ€™s off! I submitted my first book to Amazon, last night, and it will be published on Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™ƒ. It took a tumultuous, exhilarating, soul-defining  year-and-a-half to write, โ€œBreak the Violent Fetters: Life Beyond the Closet and the Pulpit.โ€ But it has taken a lifetime of experiences,  of identities, ideas, self-doubt, coming out, and finally self-acceptance that have shaped my journey.

Puerto Escondido, Mรจxico- December 14, 2018

Whatever happens next, whether itโ€™s a flop or a success, whether it helps anyone or is trashbinned into the literary abyss- I have grown, stressed, cried more, laughed more, trusted the Universe more, and found my authentic self within these penstrokes and revisiting the difficult years which honed me.

I hope the words, poems, photographs, in this narrative bring you clarity, hope, and confidence to pursue your truest life. And if none of that happens, I can rest knowing my story will live on forever, or as long as the world keeps spinning. There is always more to come. There is always another way. Thatโ€™s all that I, that we can ever really hope for.
