Book Description: The funniest, most popular kid in school, Charles Aubrey Rogers, suffered from depression, addiction, and died by suicide. Diary of a Broken Mind focuses on the relatable story of what lead to Charles’ suicide at age twenty and answers the “why” behind his addiction and this cause of death, revealed through a mother’s story and years of his published and unpublished song lyrics. The last several chapters focus on hope and healing and how the author found her purpose and forgave herself.
So here’s the rough timeline for the book release:
Aug. 24: Book announcement online, along with official release date
Sept. 3: Cover reveal and press releases, making requests for fall signings, media, etc.
Sept. 9: Will have early book copies for media review
Sept. 16-ish: Should have advance copies. (A member of the tribe who has signed up to be on the mailing list will win one.)
Launch Party Date/Time? To be announced once we have confirmation. Probably at Fountain Book Store.
In the mean time, I will be reaching out to some of you for help with the launch.
