First, I must say that I totally "dig" the title. I had no idea, that I was so uncomfortable in my own skin. I drank for oblivion and pretty much found it, losing all sense of self in the process..."Nice to Meet Me" in my survivor opinion is a totally awesome title...

Now I must say that I found this book, highly triggering. Ironically not because of anything that was said. (truthfully, I believe you took every attempt to write this book in a non triggering fashion). I just found it so highly personable, I couldn't help but find myself delving into the comparison/contrasting of my own story.

That being said, none of this really matters as I am far enough into my recovery, where I am into the desensitization of triggers, when stuff like that shows up on my radar.

I must confess that I am just a little bit jealous as I have often fantasized about writng my own book.

To sum it all up, "it was just what I needed" and "I thoroughly enjoyed this book."


Best of You (Foo Fighters)

Island - thank you for your feedback. My greatest fear in writing the book was that someone may be triggered unnecessarily - but after careful thought, I felt the content was overall very positive and helpful, so I pushed on. I hope you keep considering writing your book - the greatest hurdle is committing to it and staying on track (at least that was mine!) My best to you. Chris

Thanks for the bump Pero. I would not have seen it otherwise. This book is now at the top of my reading list.

The book is called Nice To Meet Me. If you want to check it out, please go to [page is no longer available]

Hi everyone. Pero, Jay and Puffer, thanks for keeping the thread going!

Wanted to update everyone on the best links for the book, since I pulled the original website down as I prepare to launch a new site.

You can get it from Amazon here (in Paperback and for Kindle):
http://www.amazon.com/Nice-To-Meet-Chris...nice+to+meet+me

And here, for all other eReaders:
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/115150

Also, 1in6.org was kind enough to offer the book to those who don't have the means to pay for it through their lending library. http://1in6.org/men/books-films/mens-stories-memoirs/

Thanks for the feedback and so glad that people are finding the book helpful.

Chris

Chris,

I purchased your book last night on my NOOK and I only have 40 pages left to read.
I really wish I had found this book sooner, you nail every emotion I have ever felt and validated (as so many here on MS have) my emotional state. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for publishing your journal. For someone like myself that is not in therapy it has shed light on what expectations I should have in a "T" when I get one.

I admire your courage, and for sharing your incredible journey.
All the best to you and your family.

-Jay-

So, I wrote another book.

This one's different. It's fiction. A story about a man who returns from service in Afghanistan and finds himself in a situation where he suspects a boy is being abused. It's the first book in a series, and the entire goal of the series will be to share a lot of the ways pedophiles work, the problems that children have in combating predators, and the laws that make it difficult to bring these abusers to justice.

I wrote the book to a much broader audience, not survivors specifically. I want to get a larger audience to better understand how far-reaching abuse is and the impacts it has on so many of our young people (who then become adults).

I did my best to eliminate any specific abuse situations, but there may be some triggering content as I detail the way the pedophile works.

It may not be for everyone, but it may be a great read for some of you. Just thought I'd share.

If you're interested it's only $0.99 on all e-readers. It's called "Saving Chase" and can be found on any platform. My website for the book (and my first book, Nice To Meet Me) is www.ckcarlton.com

My best to everyone!

Chris
