In Transformed, Parenting Your Non-Conforming Child with Pride, Wendy Jones uses personal stories and clinical data to show you how to support your gender-diverse children, while taking care of yourself along the way.


“With love, compassion, support, and encouragement Wendy Jones candidly shares her experience as a mom of transgender youth. As an LCSW who counsels LGBTQ families, she offers a unique perspective that provides expertise and wisdom experienced by few. Additionally, Wendy weaves in first-person stories from other families which ultimately provides a pathway in a relatable and sensitive manner.”

-Jeanette Jennings, mother of Jazz Jennings and LGBTQIA+ rights advocate and spokesperson

 

As a gender therapist and mom to a transgender child, Wendy felt there was a strong need in the world to support parents of trans kids. She knew that her own journey was challenging at first, and finding support wasn't always an easy thing. As she's been working with transgender people and their parents over the past five years, she's come to find that the parents are oftentimes scared and feel alone in the process of accepting their child's gender identity.

 


About the Author

As a gender therapist and mom to a transgender child, I felt there was a strong need in the world to support parents of trans kids.

I know that my own journey was challenging at first, and finding support wasn't always an easy thing. As I've been working with transgender people and their parents over the past five years, I've come to find that the parents are oftentimes scared and feel alone in the process of accepting their child's gender identity.

Due to the time constraints of therapy, I wanted to find a way to reach more parents with my own hard-earned strength and wisdom. Writing seemed to be just the right medium to accomplish this goal. Books were one of the main ways that our family got the necessary knowledge to start our gender journey eight years ago. However, there aren't many books out there that offer both lived/personal and clinical experiences.

I hope that my book can reach parents around the world that are in need of education, support, and encouragement. My overreaching goal is to help trans kids by helping their parents and to be a strong positive force in today's gender revolution.

Tour Kick Off: The Abdication by Justin Newland #blogtour #nowontour #crime #suspense #thriller #giveaway #rabtbooktours #MatadorBooks @RABTBookTours @Matador

The town of Unity sits perched on the edge of a yawning ravine where, long ago, a charisma of angels provided spiritual succour to a fledgeling human race. Then mankind was granted the gift of free will and had to find its own way, albeit with the guidance of the angels. The people’s first conscious act was to make an exodus from Unity – they built a rope bridge across the ravine and founded the town of Topeth. For a time, the union between the people of Topeth and the angels of Unity was one of mutual benefit. After that early spring advance, there had been a torrid decline in which mankind’s development resembled a crumpled, fading autumnal leaf.

Following the promptings of an inner voice, Tula, a young woman from the city, trudges into Topeth. Her quest is to abide with the angels and thereby discover the right and proper exercise of free will. To do that, she has to cross the bridge – and overcome her vertigo.

Topeth is in upheaval; the townsfolk blame the death of a child on dust from the nearby copper mines. The priests have convinced them that a horde of devils have thrown the angels out of Unity and now occupy the bridge, possessing anyone who trespasses on it. Then there’s the heinous Temple of Moloch!

The Abdication is the story of Tula’s endeavour to step upon the path of a destiny far greater than she could ever have imagined.

"Great action, well-told, and authentic with all the nuances and spirit of small town Texas. Don't miss it." -Lone Star Literary Life Reviews


In this enigmatic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut novel The Cuts that Cure, Arthur Herbert returns to the Texas-Mexico border with this chilling mystery set amidst a small town’s bloody loss of innocence.

Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider. He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin air amid signs of foul play.

Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy. He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a suspect.


Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking conclusion.

 


About the Author

Arthur Herbert was born and raised in small town Texas. He worked on offshore oil rigs, as a bartender, a landscaper at a trailer park, and as a social worker before going to medical school. For the last eighteen years, he’s worked as a trauma and burn surgeon, operating on all ages of injured patients. He continues to run a thriving practice in New Orleans where he lives with his wife Amy and their dogs.
