THIS IS A STORY ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG... I HAVEN'T ALWAYS FOLLOWED A PATH OF VIRTUE BUT IT'S A PATH THAT I CHERISH. SOMETIMES HUMOROUS, SOMETIMES RIDICULOUS, AND SOMETIMES HEARTBREAKING, IT'S A STORY THAT DEFINES US IN ARE GREATEST AND WORST MOMENTS. I SHARE MY MOST PERSONAL STORIES IN HOW I BECAME THE PERSON I AM TODAY... EVEN IF IT MEANS OPENING A CLOSET FULL OF SKELETONS...

Oooooh this is a bit of a shocker but I guess that was the reaction you were after. Not all your chapters seem top be in the same font some its a bit hard on the eye on the computer. In a waysome of it reminds me of a record brought out by Peter Cook and Dudley more it was called Derek and Clive live and quite shocking at the time but hysterically funny. Best of luck I'm there is a market for this but not sure what genre it sits under

Mmm not sure to entital a chapter about Wanking the best idea it will offend a lot but then i suppose they wouldnt read it in the first place. I found the first few chapters amusing ( not chapter 4) and chapter 10 the clown I thought was very good. You have used some good ideas and shared your perceptions. Not a book I could settle into and read the lot but perhaps thats just my age.
Good luck

I had to check out your book when I saw the word "pickle" because one of my books here has that word in it as well -A Fine Pickle - and so glad I stopped by - this is absolutely entertaining so far. Funny and intelligent and real. Easy to put this on my shelf because Id buy it!

Author provides insight and humor incredibly easy, through somewhat common and uncommon events that pulled me instantly into the work. Looking forward to see how he evolves as a writer, since this first work shows promise!

This book is great! The author pulls you right into each story and perspective allowing you to see the world through his eyes. A great book to consider for use in a college writing class for discussion and examples. Keep up the great work!

Chad - The Pickle Perspective has a great title and preamble and I like your quirky writing so am backing you right now. My book Freckles the Fawn welcomes your attention if you can find the time. Welcome to authonomy - best wishes Valerie (Balepy)

Your openning paragraphs are quite unique, I never would have thought about starting a book with vomiting, and you sucked me right in. Your story is well written, highly insightfull and I do like your anecdotes. This is a most interesting read. I have given you a high star rating. Space should open up on my shelf in the next couple of weeks or so and I will back your book then.

Cheers,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS BLUEBOY... I WILL BE TAKING A LOOK AT YOUR BOOK IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...

interesting title, subject matter, and voice. but you beat your metaphors to death in a way that becomes exasperating for the thoughtful reader. work on your intuition for when to move on with your narrative elements and imagery. please read my book when you have time and let me know hat you think. feedback is welcome and appreciated.

FANTASTIC!!!! THANK YOU LISA!!!!

Hello Chad,
Interesting book. You appear to be a very deep thinkier. Backed. Lisa

THANK YOU FOR THE KIND WORDS FARROLD! I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT!

I like the conversational tone, autobiographical intimacy and warm humour you achieve here - this allows you to disclose important issues of your everyday life in a way that is entertaining and meaningful in nice balance. It's a good read. Please give it a quick edit for typos and spelling - e.g., 'quite' versus 'quiet'; 'as' instead of 'has'.

A warm welcome to authonomy.

You are totally fantastic, Chad! :) How can I ever thank you enough for backing my memoirs book? :)
God bless you. :) Love, Susie :) p.s. I just looked to see if I had ****** 'd your book & I had :) - could you please ****** mine, too? :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart, because ****** 'ing & backing is what moves our books closer to the editor's desk & I'm 14 from the top, but need to be in the top 5 to be chosen at the end of November. :)

Dear Chad, I love chapter 11 where Army Boi is so lovable & kind & fun :) - wish that out of my 6 abusive husbands, at least one of them would have been like that :) - what a dreamboat :) & what a dream!! :) Your ALL CAPS pitch made for a delightfully easy read & prepared me for "struggle to be me" & chapter 1 with the pickles & orange juice, I am glad has never happened to me. :) Your putting me right there with you as you told your story & made it come to life. :) I have read, commented on, & put your book on my watchlist to back when space opens on my bookshelf. :) I have also ****** 'd your book :) - could you please ****** & back my memoirs book? :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :) Love, Susie :)

There is no better way to learn than listening the experiences and outcomes of others.
Perfect intro, just "ARE, should be OUR"..... I ave backed and look forward to continuing the read.
