My New Kindle Book!!

Here is why I haven't been posting recently: I just completed the Kindle Book I promised, and it's now up on Amazon:

Raccoons Respect My Piss But Watch Out For Skunks: My Funny Life on a Planet Not of My Choosing That I Now - Sort of, Maybe, Well Okay - Call Home

Here is the product description from the site:

When you’re both depressed and crazy, life has a way of becoming hilarious. In his new book, highly regarded mental health author and advocate John McManamy displays his wickedly dark and equally exuberant funny side.


RACCOONS RESPECT MY PISS BUT WATCH OUT FOR SKUNKS recounts the author’s comically absurd misadventures in dealing with life on a planet seemingly built for other people. Childhood, relationships, nature’s furry psychopaths, falling in love, neurons, God, UFOs, Hannibal’s elephants - it’s all there. Each chapter tells a story, the stories bind into a narrative. The narrative builds into profound realizations.


And you are laughing all the way.


John McManamy’s deep humanity and ability to connect to others is unmistakable. RACCOONS is a timeless story, one to which we can all relate, of one individual’s long and painful and ultimately heartening journey to find home.


Whether contending with mental illness or contending with normal, RACCOONS validates your worth as a human being, a band of light, a soul with neurons. Let the healing begin.


PRICE: $4.99 (Cheap)




The book is available on Kindle or any device or computer that has a Kindle App. These include your desktop or laptop, iPAD, and smart phone. To download your FREE Kindle App, go to this page on Amazon.

Finally!!! I downloaded it right away to my kindle, blogged about it (http://maevetour.blogspot.com/), and posted to both my own and my service dog's Facebook and Google+ pages. Congratulations!

Now I have to discipline myself not to stay up all night finding out if it meets my prediction of a cross between Frank McCourt and David Foster Wallace.
