New Release: Under the Bed Across the World

Under the Bed Across the World-v4 (1)

I’m SUPER excited to announce the release of Under the Bed Across the World by Rose Candis! Rose was a BLAST to work with! Even though this was a tough book to work on (content-wise and emotionally), we shared plenty of laughs. I also learned a lot from this wonderful lady.

If you or anyone you know is looking for a book about recovery from abuse or addiction, or just how to deal with the different parts of yourself, Rose has some good info in her guest post below.

Blurb:

Under the Bed Across the World, Rose’s poignant account of her journey from incest and addiction into recovery, is both tragic and humorous. Her account of how her sexually abusive Jewish father divided her loyalty between him, her mother, and herself provides a microcosm for how sexual abuse and addiction destroy the human family. By confronting her past, Rose sheds her loyalty to her abusive relatives and creates her own unique family unit through international adoption. The memoir raises the question: Can contentment be found after departure from the quagmire of toxicity?
