Hello,

I have just published a biography (my first book) on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) called "The Redeemable Curse" available on createspace.com, amazon.com and kindle ebook. If you read the book, please do not forget to provide an online review. Thanks.

This true story presents the most challenging period in the lives of a young married couple caught unawares into the diabolic clutches of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). It is a true account of their day-to-day indefatigable struggles, unflinching hopes, heartrending disappointments, personal guilt-ridden failures and jubilant triumphs in dealing with one of the most debilitating disorders in modern times.

The central figures of the story are Daniel, born and brought up in the USA, and Sonia, an Indian who immigrated to the USA in the mid-nineties. Daniel lived most of his life suffering from BPD until correctly diagnosed in 2008. Starting June of that year, he underwent Dialectical Behavior Therapy for almost two years. Even though a short eight months of therapy revealed remarkable progress in his attitude, habits and behavior, long lasting benefits arose as treatment continued over an extended period. Two years of regular and intense therapy provided him deep insights into the other side of his personality that almost destroyed his life and marriage on many occasions. The book hopes to bring awareness to the impacted population and help them recognize symptoms of the illness in very early stages; accept its truly gruesome nature without any fear, shame or stigma; and find courage and strength to seek much needed medical help. The book also strives to inspire individuals suffering from BPD in recognizing that just as much as it was the job of Dr. Summers to “rid” Daniel of the monster created by the disorder, taking personal ownership and accountability was just as critical in his treatment and recovery.

University of Washington psychologist Marsha Linehan, one of the world's leading experts on BPD, describes Borderline individuals as “the psychological equivalent of third-degree-burn patients who have no emotional skin and even the slightest touch or movement can bring them immense suffering”. As many as 75% of these individuals hurt themselves, and approximately 10% commit suicide. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, BPD is an often misunderstood, serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image and behavior. It is a disorder of emotional dysregulation. This instability often disrupts family and work, long-term planning and the individual’s sense of self-identity. While less well known than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), BPD is just as common. The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry conducted a study in 2008 of nearly 35,000 adults and found that 5.9% or 18 million Americans fit BPD diagnosis.

Sincerely,

Please check out my new novel: [b]I can hear them singing now.[/b]

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007REEQ5M

Written by a former war correspondent and international photojournalist.

Set in the 1980s at the height of political unrest in South Africa's black townships, this is the riveting story of a policeman, caught between two worlds and forced to make a terrible choice that could have catastrophic consequences.
It is a universal story of a man and his family's desperate struggles when they must face a crisis and from which there appears no escape.
You will not be able to put this book down and will not soon forget it!

Thanks for this opportunity.

With kind regards

Hilton

I've got four of them out right now.

One is a science fiction novel: "Geo-213: The Lost Expedition"

One is a horror novella: "Evil Creeps In: A Tale of Exorcism"

Two are horror anthologies: "Gruesome Triad: Three Stories of the Macabre" and "Grim Quatrain: Four Tales of Terror."

Here is my author page: http://www.amazon.com/Thomas-Taylor/e/B005LLGQU6/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1

I'm hoping to have two more anthologies out this year, one horror, and one Geo-213 related.

Happy writing.

Hi there,

I have just published my debut novel, Casa Trippi, on Amazon Kindle.

Description

In the summer of '99, Jamie Barrat's world gets turned upside down.

When he discovers that his life in Primrose Hill is based on lies, he takes drastic action and pays a heavy price. But ultimately it frees him, and Jamie begins his adventure. Swept along on the tide of life, he finds himself spending the summer on the party island of Ibiza.

But the mystical Isla Blanca has a lot more to offer Jamie than just parties, and he quickly adapts to the simple and rustic life of El hombre de la montaña – The man of the mountain.

We follow his trials, his tribulations, his friendships and his loves, until his transformation is complete.

Casa Trippi; does it actually exist, or is it just a state of mind?

For some reason the US site shows "Pricing information not available." even though the price is listed in search results. I'm going to contact Amazon about that now.
