Eight years ago, I started a journey to understand and come to terms with the bullying that happened to me as a youth. I created a website to tell my stories (bullyinglte.wordpress.com) and to try to help those of us that suffer with the long-term consequences that bullying has on us.

During the course of my journey, I discovered that I never came to terms with what had happened to me as a youth and the C-PTSD  that I suffered with for years that formed me and the decisions that I made.

Based on what I have learned and my continual drive to share and help others recover from the bullying or abuse they had as children, I have decided to write a book called "A Ladder In The Dark - My Journey from bullying  to self-acceptance".

I have also started a new company "Bullying Recovery, LLC" that will help raise funds to help others recover from C-PTSD and the long-terrm effects of Bullying. In order to publish the book and help fund the travel and marketing to promote the book to people and start-up costs of the company called Bullying Recovery LLC, I am asking for any help you can afford to support this effort. I truly believe this book will help people currently suffering with the long-term effects that bullying has and my company needs Angel Investors.

I am looking for you, my friends, family, and your friends as Angel Investors in this dream, who also wish to contribute to the journey and success of both the book and the company. So far, I have spent as much money as I can afford to start up the company and work on the book.

As you probably already know, the digital age has made it harder to get published, but easier to self-publish. I would like to self-publish and market the book, once completed through this fund and have based the requested funds from sites that describe the cost such as this PBS site ( http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2013/05/the-real-costs-of-self-publishing-book/). Thank you in advance for any help you can offer as I hope to complete the book and move toward taking this new company to market.

Thank you in advance any contribution to help me see my vision through and help the many people who suffer from C-PTSD and trauma from bullying.

Hello:
Hopefully, by now, you have received and I hope have read the book. If you haven't placed a review of the book "A Ladder In The Dark", I humbly ask if you would. My best marketing is the reviews on Amazon and however your felt, an honest review would be wonderful. Thank you so much for helping me realize this goal and all your support.

All my best,
Alan Eisenberg

Thank you to all of you that supported me as I wrote the book. It is now at the final proofing check and should be in wide release on June 29th.

Without your help, I would not have been able to afford to get my first version out and for that I am grateful. For those that gave $50 or more, a signed copy of the book will be on it's way as soon as I get them in. For all others, the book will be available through Amazon, Smashwords, and all other retail outlets. I will announce the release as soon as it is available. Again thank you.
