I wish I could say the path to publishing Life After Lust is painless. The truth is this has not been an easy journey.
At times I question whether or not I will make my publishing date. Life is really busy with my clinical and teaching work, on top of maintaining my family life. And yet, I keep inching forward. With the right help, I know I’ll make it.
I believe Life After Lust will be ready on Valentine’s Day but I could use some help. These next 2 weeks are going to be CRAZY busy finalizing this book. What would really help me is having an engaged Launch Team. The Launch Team is a group of people who will help me get my book out. This may include sharing posts, helping with projects, or writing reviews. If you are open to joining my Launch Team and helping this mission move forward, click here to join the Facebook group. I would really appreciate your help and will reward you in any way I can think of.
Before I go back to work, I’ll share a few of my most recent endorsements:
“Life After Lust is a ready reference guide for sex addicts in any stage of recovery and the therapists who work with them. Throughout his remarkable book, Forest provides a solid recovery path; a path that leads to connection with God, self, and others. I have treated sex addicts and their families for the past 29 years and I look forward to using this book with my clients. I will recommend Life After Lust to addicts, clergy, and therapists.” -Todd Olson, LCSW, Co-Founder of LifeSTAR
“Benedict offers a concrete, no-nonsense approach to overcoming sexually compulsive behaviors through looking in, looking out, and looking up for strength, support, and success in self-mastery, addiction recovery, and change. Anyone caught up in the snare of sexual addiction will benefit from using the tools within these pages.”-Debra W. Greeff, LCSW, SATP, LifeStar Boise, Idaho
“Life After Lust is a thorough and thoughtful guide to recovery from sex addiction. In it, Benedict provides a step-by-step roadmap for the journey from addiction to freedom.” Douglas Weiss, Ph.D., President of the American Assoc. for Sex Addiction Therapy
“Forest Benedict’s Life After Lust is a personalized and important contribution to the field of sexual health. He shares his personal story of recovery from porn addiction in a way that both educates and motivates the reader.”–Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, Intimacy Disorder Specialist, Author of Out of the Doghouse: A Step-by-Step Relationship-Saving Guide for Men Caught Cheating
“I met Forest when I was active in my addiction. He came alongside me, loved me, and led me into recovery. Forest’s heart for others is in this book. Life After Lust is a conduit for soul connection; a would-be syllabus for doctoral studies in personal recovery. With Forest’s guidance, I am gratefully experiencing life after lust. I know this book will help others down this same path to healing.” -Anonymous Recovering Sex Addict, Former Pastor, M. Div
As you can see, Life After Lust is a great resource for sex addicts and therapists. I hope you’ll consider joining this purposeful project.
