Dear Friends, Drodzy Przyjaciele, Cari Amici,

Please share my Joy that now the first two books in my series  This White House (Book One) and Going Sane (Book Two) are available in printed format, as well as ebooks!  By the end of the month I will have A Spectacular Dawn (Book Three) in a printed edition as well. This has been a long process and one that has had to happen one small step at a time, mostly because of the fact that each step of this process cost money and I do not have a very substantial income and so I have been doing this bit by bit as I could afford it.  Getting these books into printed format has been a big project.  The books each have 30-60 images of my paintings in them, and so they are fairly large books.  I had them done in 8.5 x 11 so that the paintings would have suitable sizes, since they are a very key part of the communication.

I decided to put in this post the Note From The Author that I have in each of the three books, to give you a better idea of them !

*******************************************************

This is that Note:

I wrote a series of books to share with you my personal story of intense suffering during childhood and how I embarked upon an epic healing journey. This journey included an unexpected method of communicating and healing from the inexpressible by drawing and painting with an enlightened witness as my guide.

There are many themes in the areas of wounding and healing from sexual abuse, incest and torture, and for my books, I have chosen themes that were most prominent in my journey. I created over 325 paintings and drawings during several years of my therapy and have arranged selections of them by themes for chapters. I tried to choose paintings in each topic that I felt would communicate best what I am trying to share.

These themes and paintings are divided into three books, each sharing the subtitle: Recovery From Incest Through Painting My Story:

It is my sincere hope that you will find something in these volumes that will assist you in perceiving, understanding, expressing, and healing from spoken or unspoken sorrows or wounds you may carry in your own hearts.
