#brokenmind

The stars of the emotionally naked tribe. I’ve asked that when people get the book that they post a photo of themselves with the book with the hashtag #brokenmind.

I don’t have a high-priced publicity team. But I have you guys! Thank you so much.

October is National Bullying Prevention month

Most have been bullied in their lifetime at some point including me. And while it is a practice that has existed since there were parents and children, it’s never been as 24/7 as it is these days with social media and texting when humiliation can spread like wildfire on a hot summer day in California.

I was always thankful that Charles was rarely bullied and from early on he understood that bullies had some underlying reason for their actions. I remember his being bullied on the bus at the age of 6 by a much older child which was killing … Read more...

Thank you for one of the ‘strongest launches ever’

Pictures from the launch

Fountain Book store might be local but they do launches for celebrities. It goes to show you what a group of passionate and determined people can do and I’m so grateful. I asked for help and you guys delivered. And because of all of you, it was one of the strongest pre-sale and launches events.

It just hit me today. I wrote a book after my son died. I actually did it. Wrote it, got it published. None of that was easy.

Book’s Introduction

It’s out! So how can you help? First, please share this post. Launch is tonight!

I have had initial feedback from advance readers and so far so good. A good launch is important and that has to do with sales so here are some … Read more...

‘Diary of a Broken Mind’ is not for the newly bereaved

Diary of a broken mind Charles Aubrey Rogers

Few authors un-sell their book. However, I just want to be sensitive to those who might not be in the place to read it yet. A number of people have asked. And while there may be newly bereaved who need it and can read it, it could be triggering for some. This book is is memoir, not a grief book. So it’s not for everyone at any time. If you are currently not feeling very stable, for example, you’d may make the choice to wait.

For a preview to help you decide, the introduction is here.

It is for those … Read more...
