No Working Title – a Life in Progress is a collection of poetry, writings, stories and art that deal with the not regularly discussed topic of the effects of sexual abuse and pornography on boys as they grow into men.
It is my story.
It is personal, subjective, raw and I hope an honest account. It is autobiographical in nature with the element of poetic license that all writers take – namely our view of the world and events…is just that, our view.
The aim of this work is not to bring accusation or even seek justice for what was done to me, but rather to start a conversation. To help equip people with a vocabulary they might not have, allow them to experience an emotion they might never have felt and to feel an acceptance that they have probably been looking for for a very long time. This is an adult book that deals with adult concepts in adult language.
Friend, you are not alone.
All profits from the sale of the actual book go to the Give Them A Voice Foundation.
This book deals with topics that are considered of a mature nature in a very real and honest way. It uses language and images that most adults would not find suitable for children.
“#dealwithit is a book for anyone who has lost it all. If you have been shot at, faced with sudden loss, blown up, screwed over (or in my case, screwed), this book is for you. I like to think of it as duct tape for the soul.” —Dr. John A. King
#dealwithit is the honest, raw, not-safe-for-work account of Dr. John A. King trying to piece his life back together, move forward and thrive after the spontaneous recall of over a decade of childhood sexual abuse by his parents and their friends. This recall event, or John-A-Geddon, was followed by the immediate onset of Complex Post Traumatic Stress, which led to the loss of his marriage, career and health.
This book shares John’s gritty process of rebuilding his life. On his journey, you’ll find practical tools, unlikely mentors and his trademark Aussie sarcasm. #dealwithit is the perfect book for anyone who is getting up to go again, or is in the middle of the fight and just needs to hear, “You can make it.”
