“Chaos” by K.C. has been released worldwide. This 130-page memoir tells the author’s harrowing journey from a life of abuse, violence, trauma, unresolved mental health issues, incarceration, and troubled relationships to reaching a place of healing, self-forgiveness, and spiritual strength. Divided into two main sections, the book covers K.C.’s experiences from childhood through to adulthood, and the essential lessons he’s learned from deep reflection and commitment to faith.
In I: In The Shadows, the author shares stories of his youth in the inner city, struggles with family members, and the behaviors that led him down a dark and painful path. In II: Road to Recovery, K.C. shows he began to heal, contending with institutions, damaged relationships, and past regrets while learning to love himself.
This memoir is a raw and honest story of redemption, with plenty of pitfalls and setbacks along the way. K.C. doesn’t hold back in descriptions of his past, or the thought patterns that drove his view of the world. This aptly titled book doesn’t shy away from describing chaotic moments in the author’s life, but ultimately becomes a hopeful message of redemption and growth.
By acknowledging the mental health issues that plagued him for much of his life, addressing the trauma of his upbringing, and connecting with The Most High, K.C. changed the trajectory of his life, and has compiled his life story in an effort to inspire people struggling with their own inner and outer turmoil.
Through this inspiring, thought-provoking writing, readers from all backgrounds will find reasons to overcome their obstacles, embrace self-acceptance and forgiveness, and ultimately reframe trauma and struggle as a path toward positive change. K.C. sees his background as an essential part of his story, recognizing that his struggles made him the person he is today, and led to this opportunity to help others heal and grow. He often tells people, “Trauma can either be used to destroy you or as a tool for success.”
The story is both heartbreaking and uplifting, serving as a warning against the perils of undiagnosed mental illness and cultures of violence, as well as a manual for finding self-acceptance and spiritual wisdom.
Chaos (ISBN: 9781960142580) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The paperback retails for $12.99 and the ebook retails for $2.99. Wholesale orders are available through Ingram. Review copies and interviews are available upon request.
From the back cover:
The purpose of my book is to touch the hearts of many and put the reader on an emotional roller coaster. As the writer, I aim to get you thinking about the past, present, and future situations we all may encounter. I am also challenging the reader to become more of a free thinker because things are not always what they seem. I want each reader to feel hurt and find empathy, all while dealing with their struggles so they can find the courage, strength, and healing they may be longing for. My goal of inspiring others to look at their own circumstances and realize with time, patience, and self-love, that anything is possible. I am praying that the reader will see the passion, love, and honesty from the pages they read. My prayers are that this book helps someone, and gives the reader an understanding while asking themselves important questions. I want the people who read my book to understand this is not from a clinical point of view. This book is from a person willing to share a story. My story. On the struggles, some of us are faced with on the daily.
About the author:
Hello, My name is K.C., I am a first-time book writer sharing my story about my struggles and battles in life and with mental health. My book has allowed me to be open and honest about my home life and struggles with mental challenges. How I found redemption, love, and fulfillment through the Most High who gave me a strong wife and family to walk with on my journey. My prayer is this book will help someone with mental challenges to understand that yes, this may be an illness, but it does not define who you are as a person. In my heart, there is a light that wants to help others succeed and have a purpose in life. The Most High gave me this opportunity by inspiring me and giving me the gift of writing. Thank You.
