Wednesday’s THE Day…

eddies book banner available now
12:00 AM, Wednesday June 1st is the OFFICIAL Launch!  But… KEEP READING!
As in all of life situations, the factors may be a little different.  Our understandings may be a little different.  Our response and the response of those who love us may be a little different but… When all is said and done… MY story is YOUR story.
As reader, G. Holmes points out:  “These delicate father son issues, so implicitly captured in his writings, are relevant to a broad spectrum of societal issues beyond the “no son of mine” father of a gay man experience. In fact, the book gets to the real substance of human conflict which is our inability to accept and appreciate difference. The key word here is appreciation. The book offers an opportunity to consider acceptance in a way that extends grace, honor, support and recognition.  When we are ungrateful, we are critical, blaming, and we use forms of rejection.  Eddies’ experience of coming to the acceptance of his son provides hope for healing; a more practical response to conflict that allows dignity, respect and honor which overcomes criticism, blame, bigotry, and ultimately rejection.”
My memoir, Voice for the Silent Fathers was written for you!

Wednesday is the OFFICIAL launch and is available in paperback and on all of your favorite reading platforms.

If enough people get a copy TODAY, there is a great chance of getting the book onto the best seller list, helping to spread its message of acceptance, healing, understanding and unconditional love.

6 days to go! It’s finally happening!

6 days to go!  It’s finally happening?  I need your help!

With just a few days from the release of “Voice For The Silent Fathers”, I’ve been contemplating how the entire process of it’s production has been such a blessing.

After deciding to actually express my true feelings by writing about being the father of a gay son over 6 years ago, I knew I already came a long way with acceptance and growth. I still remember when the words “My son is gay.” were too embarrassing for me to admit to some of my closest friends, who knew, but just wasn’t something to be spoken out loud.

Now I’m days from not only announcing I have a gay son to the world, but doing it with a picture of myself on the cover.
I remember when Mimi and I were working on the cover design, coming across difficulties due to me being locked up.  It wasn’t like the prison would allow me to leave for a photo shoot, and at one point we contemplated having someone else on the cover to represent me.  I quickly terminated that idea because the last thing I wanted was for anybody to think I was ashamed to put my face with the message.
After realizing that I’m the first father to write about this topic from this angle, I’m extremely happy I stuck with that decision, knowing that the most powerful way to teach is to lead by example. I stand proud of my son and of myself for who I am today. I made plenty of mistakes as a parent and with my life…  I accept that, but I’ve learned from the mistakes and errors of my ways, living each day to be a better me.
The message in “Voice For The Silent Fathers” is so important that at times I get frustrated with myself because I’m currently unable to physically promote with book tours and speaking engagements.  My sister and publisher have had to come up with creative ways to market my book to make sure it gets in the hands of those who need it most.

I’ve already received a lot of support which I’m thankful for, but I humbly ask everyone to spread the word to anyone touched by this issue… which is everyone.  This message doesn’t necessarily have to be for your child. A family member, friend, or co-worker of the LGBTQ community would appreciate and find great comfort in acknowledging your supporting their freedom to live who they truly are. What better way to show your support then by giving a copy of “Voice For the Silent Fathers” as a gift! 🙂

Seriously, since my thick headed, know it all, street gangster macho man mentality can change… believe me, so can any one else.

I really look forward to your feed back and of course we’re waiting on a call from Ellen!! 🙂
