This book almost came into existence under a few other names. Just when I thought I had the name ready, the title of the book chose me. For some reason, I kept hearing what sounded like, ‘Truth be in bondage’. I agreed, ‘sure do’. Growing up with parents originating from the south, it sounded quite alright to me. However, I knew good and well that was so far off and grammatically incorrect. But I just kept hearing it.


I gave in and decided to make Truth be in bondage a chapter, even before I knew exactly what would go in this chapter. These words kept ringing. I knew that it had a greater purpose. Is a chapter even sufficient enough to express these words? Once I broke down the meaning, it basically described the reason overall for the book itself.


Finally the words ‘be’ and ‘in’ came to fuse together to become ‘being’. It made sense and rang together better. That is how I came to title the book ‘Truth Being Bondage’. This was it! I had my final title! Funny enough, the title still may be slightly grammatically incorrect. This quirk creates a curious tone. A person would want to learn more in my opinion.

We are still on schedule.

After receiving the physical proof copy there is a glaring correction needed for the back cover color font. Should you purchase early you may receive this rare copy. Currently, the passage on the back of the book is printed in my favorite color which is indigo. It shows up fine electronically but hardly readable in certain places without good lighting on the physical copy.


The front cover font shows very well. I made a correction to add that color to the back cover for a complete look.


Here is the Truth Being Bondage: A Memoir, back cover passage:

I could not give you what you wanted. I was not completely whole at the time. The issue was far bigger than you and I.

Imagine constantly tripping over a foundation crack that existed as long as you have been alive. After all, it is your foundation. Truth Being Bondage is a memoir based on the uncovering of a repressed memory and how it impacted life from childhood to adulthood. Let’s explore family dynamics between mother, father and everyone in between. Sometimes it is the adults who want to play make believe.

What can come of dredging up our past? Hopefully, a gem of information. It only takes one event to throw everything off course. There was trauma and a brokenness that went unaddressed, ignored and contained as if it did not exist. It had no time or place to heal.

In life, you can be considered difficult when you ask too many questions. Down this path, I explore my thoughts and actions at the time. Let’s go there and shine a light on the dark areas where our sensibilities may lack.
