Red Hen Press, a nonprofit literary press in California, is publishing When Rain Hurts, which will be released in trade paperback in September 2013.
In the published book, a narrative chapter will be preceded by a journal entry and photograph. I have many, many more journal entries than chapters so I’ve picked the ones that I think offer the most complete story.
The personal stories, support, information, and compassion you’ve shown as I struggle to become a better parent and more effective voice for FASD never ceases to amaze or humble.
If you’re new to the blog – welcome. To read the book’s beginning chapters, please scroll to the bottom of this screen, hit “next page” on the lower left corner, and then scroll again to your screen’s bottom. That’s where you’ll find a brief Introduction & Prologue, then Chapter 1, etc. Read “up” for each subsequent chapter. They’re a little like diamonds in the rough – they’ve been edited and polished significantly since posting, but you’ll get the gist. Older 2010 journal entries are filed under “Pages” on the right hand column.
