It’s Been a Long Life….

Published August 24, 2021 by Nan Mykel

….and I’m here to tell you that I hope to share something important from my life and experience in a once a week posting of  the 26 chapters plus Author’s Note, Preface, and Introduction from FALLOUT–A SURVIVOR TALKS TO INCEST OFFENDERS.  I’ll cut my bait and accept my losses if no one cares to read them, but having written a good book without any attempt to sell, I thought I’d give my effort one last try to better the continuing harmful, denied, whispered  underground behavior that —  acknowledged or not — can skew  the success of  family, their members, and even reach into the  future of their descendents without their conscious acknowledgement.  Each single once a week post will be accompanied by the Pixabay photo above.  I’m going to try and unpublish all other mention of the book from the site.  (May take a little time and effort).   Since today is Wednesday and I’m posting, I’ll aim for regular postings every Wednesdy.  And to double check that I can accomplish this, I’ll start with the list of Contents  today:
