As the material on this blog has grown, I’ve started giving attention to something I’ve been idly considering for quite some time. I’m now writing a book on the topic of therapy abuse. I think it’s an important and difficult topic, and one that isn’t written about enough.
It won’t be simply a rehash of what’s on the blog. After all, why would anybody buy something you can just read on the Internet for free? At the moment I’ve completed two (very rough) chapter drafts. One on the Derek Gale case and one on gay-to-straight “conversion therapy”. At some point I hope to have a free sample chapter available online.
I won’t be approaching any publishers for the time being. Instead my initial step will be to self-publish it as an ebook. Yeah, yeah, vanity publishing and all that, but this is a rather niche area and I’m not convinced publishers would be all that interested.
I’d tell you all the title of the book, but I haven’t thought of one yet. Watch this space for (hopefully) more updates as the book progresses.
