“I always thought twenty-five was the year I’d finally be grown up, the year the world would finally start taking me seriously, the year I would finally know what I wanted. And yet…”

The Year I Turned 25 catalogues the ups and downs of a TV reporter in her mid-twenties, who takes on the added challenge of training an adorable, but misbehaving puppy. Sometimes melancholic and other times hilarious, this brave and thought-provoking memoir approaches dating, sexual assault and mental health in a personal, but relatable way. This book is for every woman who ever asked herself if something was wrong with her and for every dog lover who discovered true love in a puppy.

“This project isn’t about – and was never about – figuring out who I am. It’s about figuring out how to figure out who I am.”

Memoir – Barefoot on Broken Glass

“Some moments are like dandelions; we see the beauty and possibility in the yellow flower springing up from the ground, but by the time we decide what to do with it, the dandelion has become white fluff carried away on the breeze. The moment, our chance, is gone. Other moments have a sneaky way of stretching into forever.”

Barefoot on Broken Glass is the story of a young girl named Monterey, afraid to blink. Each time her eyes close, they open into a new vignette of chaos, tragedy, and deaths of the young. Waking one morning to find her sister lying dead a few feet away sent Monterey running haphazardly through the years, trying to distance herself from fear and guilt while searching for a way to reclaim a faith that would sustain her, searching for a way to finally stop crying.

Memoir/Women’s Non-Fiction – It’ll Feel Better when it Quits Hurting

Readers are saying great things about this book:

“A Rare Gem” – Top 1000 Reviewer on Amazon
“A Must-Read. Should be Mandatory for All Participants in Foster Care & Faculties in the Educational System. Laughs & Tears.” – Top 1000 Reviewer on Amazon
“Foster Care: What is it, really?”
“A Fabulous Inspiration”
“I was shaking my head & chuckling as I finished every chapter.”
“Funny, emotional”

Many years ago my friends and I would sit around and play what we called “Jerry Springer: the Home Game”. The object of the game was to see how many upcoming shows we qualified for, with the story to support our claim, and whoever had the most at the end of the program won. I was the reigning champion. This book started off as just a lighthearted collection of anecdotes, stories shared with friends over the years to both the horror and delight of my audience. But as I began to write I realized that the humor of my life comes not from the light moments, but the dark, and without those moments being included much of the humor would be lost without that context. This book is a bit darker than I initially intended, but I hope that while reading this I can make you smile, even on occasion laugh out loud at the ridiculousness of the situations I have found myself in over the years, and that you, like me, can find the humor in all the dark places. I do not believe I have any wisdom to share in this telling, nor is it even an inspirational tale of achievement by overcoming adversity, it is simply my life that I have survived. For better or worse, this is the mostly true, fairly accurate, and almost completely factual account of my life. Some liberties have been taken to protect the somewhat innocent and a few small embellishments were made for the sake of a good story.

Autopathography – Giving It Raw: Nearly 30 Years With AIDS

Giving It RawGiving It Raw: Nearly 30 Years With AIDS
By Francisco Ibanez-Carrasco
Publisher: Transgress Press
Published: January 2015
ISBN: 978-1502470003
ASIN: B00SWDVEJI
Genre: Autopathography, Memoir, AIDS
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quanitities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), Kindle

So much about Giving It Raw: Nearly 30 Years with HIV is raw — the sex, the emotions, the loss — that there are moments you want to move away from the unflinching honesty, close the book, not so you can avoid his frank and deliciously graphic recollections of sexual encounters over the last several decades as a gay positive man, but so you too don’t find yourself remembering the same visceral loss and haunting loneliness, the moment in time where despair and shame and hedonism were the only antidotes to the bodies piling up around us. Shedding that shame, in part becoming the man he is through BDSM, fetishes, and rough trade, is what Ibáñez-Carrasco writes of so eloquently (the title being a clear nod to this past and present), but this is not a book about sex, not a work of erotica. It’s a tragicomic confessional, a history lesson, and an intellectual treatise on sex, love, family, and a virus that’s killing fewer but still too many.
