Free On Amazon This Weekend: 4/30–5/1
This is not much of a blog, I just wanted everyone to know that my book, Prison Diary(a): A San Quentin Comedy, Kinda is free to download on Amazon.
Here is the Amazon address http://geni.us/32qF
This originally started out as a way to share my San Quentin experience with my wife (after I got home). It was too traumatic and depressing to describe it in letters while I was going through it. With no phone access, all we had were pencils and paper. I didn’t want to scare her, let her know I was completely overwhelmed and barely keeping it together. Instead, I channeled everything in to my “dairy.” What I started noticing is I was finding a lot of things funny. There was humor in the experience if you looked hard enough. The jokes actually made the situations easier to deal with. I found comedy to be a defense mechanism.
That defense mechanism allowed me to write a book that completely goes against the grain of a typical book about the prison experience. Is it dark too? Absolutely, but it had to be, it’s prison. Prison sucks.
Everything in here is 100% true.
It is raw.
It is dirty.
It is real.
The last part of the book is designed to help those who are struggling with themselves. How often do we find the biggest obstacle to success is staring at us in the mirror? I go through my strategies that helped me overcome the greatest mistake of my life. Maybe the greatest mistake of anyone’s life that I know. So I know they work, and I am living proof of their power.
I want my experiences, and my perspective to help those out there that are struggling with themselves. You don’t have to have gotten in to trouble to gain from this book. You could be on the verge. There could be hints of it. It is never too early or too late to start getting better, being better.
Who are you supposed to be? What were you born to be? What greatness are you holding back? It’s time to find out.
I hope you enjoy the book.
Please leave comments on Amazon. I can’t wait to hear your reaction.
Have a great weekend everyone!
