While my publisher, Tate Publishing, has closed its doors, a person can still order a copy of A Tear-Stained Letter on Amazon. I ordered a copy and it only took a few days to arrive. 


The publisher of my book, Tate Publishing, is going out of business and A Tear-Stained Letter, like many others, will soon be out of print.

ʺWhen two Memphis police detectives knocked on Vern Beachy's door on a Friday night in June of 2006, Vern didn't know what the detectives had to say, but he knew it wasn't good news. In fact, it was about the worst message one can hear. Vern's wife, Melinda, was dead, and it was believed she had committed suicide.ʺ



"Beachy’s narrative offers a vocabulary and several ways to deal with the chaotic feelings that are unmoored when a person kills themselves, leaving others behind in the emotional wake. And because of this, A Tear-Stained Letter may be especially helpful as a reassurance and affirmation for those still participating in this thing called “life.”

Here's the deal; I asked Julie to view my latest YouTube video to see if she thought I crossed the line (as far as "taste" is concerned) She said "if you feel the need to ask, then you probably did." But, she laughed, so I posted it. LOL.

The title of this YouTube video is called "Mea culpa." It will make sense after you watch it.
