Ok, I've been on lock-down for the last several weekends and would like to celebrate the fact that the recovery book is almost done!
I had hoped to release this book by the end of December. However, I was able to get a whole week off from work at the end of this month and would like to use the time to round out the book and get it just the way I want it before I submit it to my e-publisher on 1/3/11.
Once I submit it to Network Media, it's just a matter of weeks until the e-book will be available for download on our new site.
As you know, the recovery book consists of 6 Steps to Surviving a Toxic Relationship. The website here at www.vainencounters.com will remain the forum to discuss the first three steps:
1 - Understand It
2 - No Contact
3 - Get It Out
The new website at www.allaboutrecoverynetwork.com will become the forum to discuss the remaining steps:
4 - Wake Up
5 - Get Real
6 - Heal
Both forums will be equally important depending on what stage of recovery you are in. Members should feel free to share, post and get advice from both forums. No one will be limited to participating in just one forum. However, we do imagine the newcomers will spend more time relating to one another on this forum while the veterans will spend more time relating to one another on the new forum. We hope veterans will continue to come to this board to offer advice to newcomers because helping others is a big part of the healing process and we need everyone's involvement to build real awareness.
I'm really looking forward to finally bringing you a book with actionable steps to help you move on and re-create your life. I know it has taken me over a year to research and develop and I appreciate your patience. You have all been my inspiration in writing this book. I hope you know that without your support, this book would never have been written.
I know I don't post on this site as often as I'd like, but please know I'm always looking and reading. Every time I do so, it inspires me that much more to keep working on the book. Thank you for motivating me every day.
I truly believe that together we can help each other recover and move on from these toxic relationships. This website has always been the first phase of my recovery program....
To Understand It, Go No Contact and Get It Out
With the new book and website, we finally bring you the second phase of our recovery program:
Get Real, Wake Up and Heal!!!
Thanks again for your patience and support. We can't wait to start working the full recovery program with you in the new year ahead!
Lots of Love,
