Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments I have written a memoir about someone who has overcome great obstacles. It is about Denise who became a pastor and it's called Dancing On My One Ugly Toe Around The Rim Of Hell. I am trying to get it out there. What memoirs have you read? Any that would be similar to mine? Lisa

I have never read anything specifically having to do with a pastor, but I enjoy reading about people who "become something great" out of a time of great adversity. You are welcome to look at my site and read my reviews of all the books I have read. I am constantly looking for new memoirs. I like to read ones that are about "everyday people", not famous people. Your title sounds like one that will peak people's curiosity. Is it already out? I will read it and let you know what I think! What is your full name?? so I can find it. I will try to post some info on the memoirs I have read. Thanks for joining my group!

Hi Kendra, Thanks for your support. No, my book isn't out yet. I'm trying to network on line to generate interest in it. If I can get it published, I'll tell you. In the meantime, I will invite you to be my Goodreads friend so that you will have a link to my blog which I am going to get up and running in a few weeks. Lisa

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments I have finally gotten my blog up and running after many technical difficulties. (I am a social worker and thus, technically challenged.) Anyway, the site is http://Storiesofhealingrecoveryandcou.... The second entry was posted today.

Jeff Long | 1 comments Hi, Lisa--I had a problem reading your blog. I hope they are resolved soon, so that I can get into it. By the way, you may find more titles for your list in my book Remembered Childhoods: A Guide to Autobiography and Memoirs of Childhood and Youth. It has a subject index, so you can look up titles of memoirs according to types of disease, forms of abuse, etc.--Jeff Long

Let me know if you're able to access it. I had some trouble at the beginning but other people have accessed it since I fixed a couple of glitches. Peace, Lisa

Sharon (fiona64) Hello to the group! This is my first posting. I have published a memoir, Les Pensees Dangereuses, that talks about recovery from depression and a number of related issues. I have another one in edits, You Had to Be There: Three Years of Mayhem and Bad Decisions in the Portland Music Scene, that will be published this fall.

Thanks so much for starting this group; I am fascinated by memoirs (currently reading Brave Girl Eating: A Family's Struggle with Anorexia) and look forward to adding some of your books to my list.

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments Hi Sharon, Welcome to the group. I have written a memoir called Dancing On My One Ugly Toe Around The Rim of Hell. It is the story of Denise's stuggle to recover from a stroke,14 seizures, and 9 days in a coma that she had when she gave birth to her 7th child. He also had a stroke in the birth process. I met them when I was providing social services to them. The book is about their recovery, how we got to know each other, and she asked me to write the book about recovering from childhood trauma of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I hope to get it out as an e-book in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out my blog at http://Storiesofhealingrecoveryandcou...

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments Thanks. Your book also sounds interesting. What is the URL for your blog?

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments Hi Nanette, Ithought my blog link was working. It is http://Storiesofhealingrecoveryandcou... let me know if this works. BTW, I had someone put some disgusting pornography on my blog in the comments, I found out how to delete it, but it freaked me out.

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments I tried it also before. It works on other links but not this one. However, for a second, I saw my title flash and then it said "please" after it. Maybe someone is sabotaging it. I hope not because I don't know how to fix it.

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments I'd love to be a "follower" of your blog. I looked at the site and liked it very much but unlike other blogs, I couldn't find the place on yours to sign up to be a follower. How do I do it? Thank you for being a follower of my blog.

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments Okay. I'll look at your website and try again. By the way, have you been able to find out how to get any tech support from blogspot?

Lisa (lisarosenbergsachs) | 20 comments I just signed up to be a follower on your blog. I think your problem is that you have to scroll so far down that most of us miss it.
