After six months of starting the self publishing process, I pushed the button to accept my cover and manuscript for publication.
The Total Deconstruction of Chloe Wilson is a straight-forward memoir about my teen pregnancy. The book is a great resource for teen girls, counselors, and parents of teen girls. I wrote this book to help teenage girls who suffer with low self-esteem to choose their youth and learn to be happy with who they are. I needed a boyfriend to feel good about myself. That mindset led to my eventual deconstruction and teen pregnancy. Topics addressed in the book include self-esteem, date rape, suicide, and teen pregnancy. Statistics and consequences of teen pregnancy are provided with a clear view of the risks involved for the mother and child.
I would encourage all teen girls, especially those at-risk, to read this book.
“My legs traded off, jiggling to my high level of anxiety.
I shifted in my chair–comfort eluded me.
On one side, the school nurse.
on the other sat Sarah. She looked eerily calm.
The attending nurse walked into the waiting room with the results tucked in her hand. I jumped out of my seat. Only a few feet away stood this woman in a smiley-face smock and she was holding my future…
‘I have good news,’ she said, ‘and bad news.’ She looked at my friend. ‘Sarah, you are not pregnant.’ Then, turning to me, she delivered the verdict without leniency.
‘Chloe, you definitely are.'” Excerpt from The Total Deconstruction of Chloe Wilson

One thought on “I Am A Published Author!”
I am so hooked! Congratulations on your book launch. The young women and girls who read this as well as the adults that pass it on to them will connect and hopefully gain from this powerful story. Your desire to share this story and to help make the world a better place for young women is inspiring. If we could just be ourselves and love ourselves from the get go as young women, the world would be an even more amazing place. Thank you for what you do.
