"That addiction wheel still goes round and round, decade after decade, ad nauseum...at times very reminiscent of the works of The Beats but embodied into a new generation's kinder and gentler Holden Caulfield. Great Kamikazi writing." - W. Lawendowski
"Each chapter told a different story with regard to what point the character was in his life. It told of his rises and falls... but throughout all of this the character was able to provide his own analytical insight and grow from these occurrences. There is also love on a deep level that when something goes wrong, you almost ache inside because of the connection the character describes. The book is very deep and a must read..." - H. Poole
"Not only do you get to delve into another personality, but you also get a glimpse at another life from a different perspective not many of us know."
"A magic carpet ride that ascends to the sky just to let you come crashing down."
"He shares his life and feelings in a way that makes you feel like you know him... It is well written in a way that draws you in and lets you feel his pain."

For a long time, almost immediately after publication of My Mind's Abyss, I suppressed this book, limiting all eBook and paperback copies available for it. I did this out of fear, out of shame, maybe for being a writer, maybe for what I've written. I spent almost two years battling with this book, whether to leave it buried or to resurrect it. I lost great amounts of sleep, had panic attacks, felt more lost and more hopeless all because of having written this book. I no longer felt some sense of pride about it, instead it became my scarlet letter.
I wrote My Mind's Abyss while I was in a different place in my life, battling with severe depression, substance abuse withdrawal, and delirium tremens, mixed with what remained of a broken life. Getting clean and sober wasn't exactly the reality I was looking for nor hoping to find. See, the original plan was to commit suicide after writing this book. I was losing it. I couldn't sleep. I felt schizophrenic. I figured that if I killed myself after rushing to publish the book, then by my act of suicide not only would I get peace, but the world would have no choice but to hear what I had to say. I also thought that by doing so I could guarantee some wealth for my family. Maybe it's all just narcissism and vanity.
