Larry, I'm just looking for you guys to look at the sneak peek and the cover, I'm really just a bit scared and looking to you guys for support.

John,

I think I commented elsewhere about the cover, which is already an incredible statement! I also like the preview.

Much love,
Larry

Thanks Larry, it's my bad for being so anxious. I only posted about it for help because I knew you guys could help me come out of it and you have. I am going to let this book go, if it helps others great, if people like it great, if they don't I can't help it, I just wrote the truth about my life and struggles and triumph. My T said the anxiety is what any author would face, not a new thing. I am going to be okay and I am going to stop worrying about it.

I have to say you guys are the greatest, you make my day better every day.

Thanks for the help,

John,

It's not bad at all. In fact it's very moving to observe your reactions. You have put a lot of heart and soul into your book, so of course you are nervous about how it will be received.

Much love,
Larry

Just when I thought it could not get any better and Larry writes,

"It's not bad at all. In fact it's very moving to observe your reactions."

Larry, thanks, I mean it.

Figured out what has been bothering me, I am sorry I was down but I have a hormonal problem. My Testosterone levels are low and I have to manage them with medication, steroids. When the levels reach bottom I lose my confidence and damn near lose the will to get up in the morning. It is hard to manage it and the mood fluctuates right with my hormones. I just feel bad for venting on all of you with this post when it was a hormonal problem. Does anyone else have hormonal issues. I had a vasectomy after my third child and I have had problems since then. I have used before this when they were low but I could come off of them without any problems now I am stuck with the medication, Dr. prescribed and monitored steroid injections.

Again sorry for the low, fearful post's and the anxiety ridden conversation on my part. Thanks for being there for me, you guys are great as usual.

Have you tried Androgel? It is a gel you put on and the testosterone is absorbed transdermally. I have used it for about 9 months and I could not believe the mood difference it made!

John,

if the publisher has not already done it, send copies to leading newspapers for review.
The Guardian in the UK, and the independent do book reviews, that is what gets them selling.

It is a niche market for this type of book, and because it is not fiction, then it will sell all the more,

ste

BTW The cover is great!

John,

We all have issues and you have yours. Just post as you are, and that will do nicely. ;\)

Ste has a valuable point. Has your publisher sent out review copies to any of the main review media for such a book?

Much love,
Larry

I just talked to a friend and they suggested the patch, I got the gel first and the physician suggested that I use the injection. I may go back to the gel or the patch, the injection lifts me up high then bottoms out.

Thanks for all the advise, I will find out what they are doing at the publishing company. I have emailed Bill Orielly, and a few abuse sites and all of them have requested the book for review, except Bill, I just sent that email a few days ago. I think the newspapers route is a great idea and again thanks for the advise. Man I feel much better and apologize for the anxiety ridden post. I feel a bit stupid for all of that, it is a crazy thing "confidence" and hormones sure do mess with it.
