Reconstructed - A Survivor's Memoir

Have you ever seen your life flash before your eyes? Follow one man’s journey of positivity and resilience as he reconstructs his life after a near-fatal accident!

Atta Ahmad was determined to make his dreams come true. So unwavering, in fact, that he was willing to forgo sleep just to reach his goals.

Eventually, it caught up to him on September 5, 2015.

That fateful day, an exhilarating road trip from Boston to Michigan turned into a fight for his life when his exhaustion drove him to fall asleep at the wheel.

It all happened in an instant.

One minute, he was blasting music with the windows down, while drinking water and enjoying snacks. The next, he was flying through his truck’s windshield and catapulted into a ditch.

A promising and ambitious young man was reduced to a mangled, bloody heap of flesh and bone on the ground. Any other person would have given up and let go. But not Ahmad.

Ahmad is a survivor and “Reconstructed: A Survivor’s Memoir” is his story of determination, grit, and triumph… despite the odds stacked against him.

“Don’t let anyone put you in a box and tell you ‘this is how it should be.’ Go get your second wind and keep running toward that finish line.” — Atta Ahmad $2.99 on Kindle.

Dear Dana: That time I went crazy and wrote all 580 of my Facebook friends a handwritten letter

Dear Dana: That time I went crazy and wrote all 580 of my Facebook friends a handwritten letter
When Amy Daughters reconnected with her old pal Dana on Facebook, she had no idea how it would change her life. Though the two women hadn’t had any contact in thirty years, it didn’t take them long to catch up—and when Amy learned that Dana’s son Parker was doing a second stint at St. Jude battling cancer, she was suddenly inspired to begin writing the pair weekly letters.

When Parker died, Amy—not knowing what else to do—continued to write Dana. Eventually, Dana wrote back, and the two became pen pals, sharing things through the mail that they had never shared before. The richness of the experience left Amy wondering something: If my life could be so changed by someone I considered “just a Facebook friend,” what would happen if I wrote all my Facebook friends a letter?

A whopping 580 handwritten letters later Amy’s life, and most of all her heart, would never, ever, be the same again. As it turned out, there were actual individuals living very real lives behind each social media profile, and she was beautifully connected to each of those extraordinary, flawed people for a specific reason. They loved her, and she loved them. And nothing—not politics, beliefs, or lifestyle—could separate them. $0.99 on Kindle.

YOU CAN’T COMPLETE ME: But I Can! A Self-Love Story

YOU CAN’T COMPLETE ME: But I Can! A Self-Love Story
Licensed counselor by day and recovering codependent by night…This candid memoir offers a rare insight into the messy, imperfect journey of healing oneself to find true love.

For their seventh wedding anniversary, Hayley Kaplan bought her husband a customized back scratcher as a joke. The inscription read, “For that seven-year itch.” Except she was the one who began an unexpected and torturous affair later that year.

Torn between a marriage to a good man and someone whom she considered to be her “soul mate,” her strong attachment to two very different men led Kaplan to seek professional help. In the therapist’s office, she came to the startling realization that she was trying to fill an emotional void that seemingly had no bottom. It was only by looking inward for love that she could truly find her happily ever after.

With deep honesty and sensitivity, Kaplan examines love addiction and codependency from an insider’s perspective. Her memoir is aimed at helping others navigate their own path of healing and recovery to develop self-love and self-assurance.

Hayley Kaplan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who draws on her unique personal and professional wisdom in her work with individuals, couples, and families. $0.99 on Kindle

Beyond the Song

 Beyond the Song

Beyond the Song is an autobiographical novel based on the author’s coming of age in the ‘sixties and early ‘seventies. A singer-songwriter like her alter-ego Carol Marks, Carol Selick begins each chapter with lyrics she wrote and still performs today. Taken together, the songs introduce the themes of her story and trace the development of her character as she rebels against her strict suburban upbringing to join the counter-culture in hopes of fulfilling her dream of making it in the music business.

The narrator relates her tale in a warm, vulnerable, and irrepressibly zany voice as Carol goes to school in Washington DC, drops out to take a pilgrimage to Berkeley, and eventually winds up living in New York in pursuit of making it in the music business. Torn between romance and career, she continually wavers.

Her quest for freedom lands her in a series of dangerous situations and narrow escapes: she hitchhikes in California at the time of the Manson murders, attends anti-war demonstrations that turn violent, and is nearly arrested when her boyfriend is nabbed in a drug raid.

Along the way, the narrator also meets two important guides who help her sort her priorities, take herself seriously, and develop her considerable talents: Rose, a pioneering black woman songwriter based on hall-of-famer Rose Marie McCoy, Carol’s real-life mentor; and Bruce Pasternak, a fictionalized psychoanalyst who helps her establish the self-assurance to stand on her own two feet at a time when female singer-songwriters had few role models. All inform the heroine’s lyrics and narrative voice as she gradually learns to believe in herself, discipline her talent, and turn her heartbreak into song. $2.99 on Kindle.
