Though I am already an established author, I feel as though Facing Hate is my first book. It is in review now and should be online soon on Amazon, so for now I’m pondering how this book is unique.
First, this book does not share its byline. I’m the sole author. This is different than some of the books my wife and I wrote together. Truth be told, she was the inspiration for Love in the House and Love Another Child, but I was their writer.
Second, this book is truly a “memoir.” If you have been following the development of Facing Hate for a while, you know that I changed the subtitle to “Memoir of a Social Smear.” I liked the simplicity and raw truth of the subtitle. It’s a painful, necessary story.
Third, this book reaches beyond my comfortable, familiar audience. I have written toward two audiences: the speech and debate community and the young parenting community. Facing Hate blends the two, but much value can be drawn from the story without ever being a competitor or a parent.
In a way I feel this book is bringing me on an adventure that I haven’t foreseen. Stay tuned for the exciting developments in the coming days!
