Hi all, I'm new to the forum. Looks like a great group and I look forward to "meeting" you all! After living the past few decades in a real-life movie of the week—with one truly unbelievable adversity after another—and after much prodding from friends and family (especially my therapist!) I've finally decided to attempt penning my memoir. My biggest obstacle is there are things that I've had to shield my 15 year old son from that would be very traumatic for him to learn about at this stage. In addition, I would be including details about my in-laws and my husband that would be quite embarrassing and humiliating if real names and places were used. I'm not in a financial position to afford a ghostwriter, and I could obviously use a pen name, but then how would I ever be able to promote and market the book myself? Would love to hear any suggestions you all might have. Thanks so much!
