Finding Redemption: How a Lost Manuscript Became an Inspiration and an Award-Winning Book

After forty-five years, Ian Prattis rediscovered a manuscript he thought was long lost—he couldn’t even believe that he wrote it himself years ago.

Redemption was written back in 1975 when Ian was struggling with a failing marriage and an unstable career as a professor. Looking back, he couldn’t believe that he wrote those words in such a melancholic state. The rediscovery of his written work made him realize that many people also suffer from depression like he did and could also overcome that depression in time—like he also did.

In this month’s Author Spotlight edition, Ian talks about how a troubled time in life could turn into something positive and inspirational.

Give them the digital means through the Share-Your-Book service, an interactive widget that shows your book cover, an excerpt of your story, purchasing information, and more. It lets your readers share your book through social media, social bookmarks, or e-mail. They can even just copy the link to the widget and paste it wherever they like or embed it on their own website or blog.
