Sherry Glaser Reads/Signs 'The First Practical Handbook for Crazy People (Making the Most of Mental Illness)' at Gallery Bookshop, 9/23
by BWW News Desk - Sep 6, 2016

'The First Practical Handbook for Crazy People' empowers by removing the stigma of 'crazy,' and replacing it with the hope that we can move through healing and serenity, no matter whose genes we inherited.' - Midwest Book Review On Friday, Sept. 23 at 6:30 p.m., the Gallery Bookshop in Mendocino, Calif. will host author and award-winning performance artist Sherry Glaser's book launch of 'The First Practical Handbook for Crazy People (Making the Most of Mental Illness),' which was co-written with her late mother, Shelly Glaser. Sherry will be on hand to read and sign the book; and discuss related topics, including her mother's determination to transcend her severe mental illness diagnosis; the impact of parental mental illness on children who may fear inheriting 'craziness;' and what it's like to co-write a book with a parent who is deceased. Mother's Milk Publications released the book in paperback on Sept. 6. The handbook came out in Kindle e-book format last month, and garnered stellar reader reviews. Radio journalist Christina Aanestad called it 'a unique testament to the human spirit and a touching memoir to Sherry's late mother, who lived a full life with a mental illness, gaining a law degree, managing a company, and raising a family-all while going crazy.' 'Years after my mother died, I came across this manuscript she'd written entitled 'The First Practical Handbook for Crazy People,' said Sherry Glaser in a phone interview with journalist Marlan Warren. 'I was struck by how honest she was in sharing her own journey and her down-to-earth tips for others who may also be struggling.' In 2015, Sherry decided to pick up where her mother left off-polishing Shelly Glaser's manuscript, while adding her own harrowing 'herstory.' In the book's section, 'Sherry: The Sequel,' Sherry recounts her rollercoaster life which has run the gamut from celebrated performance artist (her award-winning Off-Broadway show 'Family Secrets' still holds the title of 'The Longest Running One-Woman Show in Off-Broadway History') to the mysterious disappearance of her husband to pot advocacy (and SWAT arrest) to lesbian marriage and divorce. Like her mother, Sherry shares the tools she uses to keep straitjackets at bay. 'We're breaking new ground here,' said Sherry Glaser. 'This is the first mother-daughter mental health recovery handbook.' Clinical psychologist Lauren J. Oliver commented in an Amazon review: 'It is inspiring to experience a clear-voiced woman who is committed to self-healing and being well, and who uses many practical and valuable tools to do so.' The book also features Shelly Glaser's 'Companion Questionnaire,' which serves as an interactive workbook to help readers 'avoid making uninformed choices.' Sherry Glaser created 'The First Practical Blog for Crazy People' and on Aug. 22, posted: 'We don't know what's next, but if we know where we're coming from, and that there are practical tools ready and available, we can learn to crawl and walk and run and eventually...fly.'

Young Adult Novel WEARILAND is Released
by BWW News Desk - Apr 19, 2016

Merge Publishing is announcing 'Weariland,' a new novel by Mary Shotwell. The 55,000 word novel introduces readers to Weariland, which used to be called Wonderland. The land is now dark, prevalent with evil, magic, and Family Secrets that cannot stay hidden for long. 'Weariland stands alone with series potential,' Mary Shotwell says. The novel, dark at times, brings together a crime, coming of age story, and an adventure. 'Readers unfamiliar with Alice in Wonderland can still fully enjoy the book.' The novel follows Lason, a teen who travels to England for her grandmother's funeral. Her grandmother's murder is shrouded with mystery, and while she and her mother try to cope, a stranger from Weariland, a dreary world once known as Wonderland, petitions Lason's help in finding a secret family heirloom. Lason is swept in an adventure through Weariland's unpredictable realm, encountering colorful characters and discovering her family's elusive history. About the Author: Mary Shotwell grew up in northeast Ohio, so it was only natural for her to pursue a degree in marine biology. After studying dolphin behavior and estimating great white shark populations, she earned her Ph.D. in Biostatistics in Charleston, South Carolina. It was there, during the arduous dissertation process, where she had the idea to write a book. With Alice and the crazy characters from Wonderland staring her down from her bedroom poster, Mary envisioned what that fantasy realm would look like in current day. Creative writing served as a natural escape from technical writing, wedding planning, pregnancy, and job hunting. Mary is excited to debut Weariland (Merge Publishing, Spring 2016), a novel introducing Lason Davies, a teenager who learns about her family's past in a world once called Wonderland. She currently resides in Tennessee with her husband and three children. Available in ebook and softcover. Published by Merge, distributed by Ingram. Author is available for media interviews and questions. Please contact Merge Publishing to arrange a time. ISBN: 978-0-9904432-6-1 Print ISBN: 978-0-9904432-7-8 Digital (more...)
