PRLog - June 25, 2012 - New Bern, NC – Bullying, prejudice, and profiling vie for top headlines in the United States, but a recently published book offers a story of reconciliation and repair from both sides of these issues. Penned with healing in mind, New Bern, North Carolina, author Kenneth L. Capps offers new but classic coping mechanisms to disarm bullies and heal decades of damage.
Forgiving Waters, a riveting read set in rural Texas, explores the relationships of two young men finding their way in an adult world and of seasoned fellow cowboys with their preconceived social standards and coping mechanisms. The everyday speech and a common sense approach to life become brilliant revelations to entertain and stimulate readers.
Now is the time for this book, as media reports on bullying at all levels of society: children against children; parents against coaches; children against school bus monitors; and many other confrontations that could be avoided. The book embodies the reality that harsh words, bullying, prejudice, and anger have negative consequences for the recipient as well as the one delivering the abuse. This book is now available in both hardcover and paperback through BQB’s online store, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and your favorite bookstore. The ebook version is also available on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, and Kobo.
Author Kenneth L. Capps will be doing his first book signing during the New Bern Artwalk at Port City Java, 323 Middle Street, New Bern, NC, on July 13 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Email Julie@bqbpublishing.com to schedule an interview.
About Author Kenneth L. Capps
From growing up in Texas to his entrepreneurial endeavors in North Carolina, to entering writing contests for validation, Capps is a down-to-earth, regular kind of guy who made a dream real. He is well spoken and engaging.
Capps was born in Houston, joined the US Marine Corps in 1979 for 13 years, started a tree removal company, and has pulled himself through the mire of some tough relationships. His stories are raw and brutal. He describes his foray into the writing world with gusto, sincerity, and raw emotion:
All my days and all my experiences, combined with my failures and triumphs, have led me to the pen. I started writing out of anger and found it to be wonderful therapy. I am not as polished as most writers, my edges are jagged, and my voice is harsh at times. I write the stories that explode from my endless imagination. I become lost in the pages as the pen frantically drags my hand across them.
In 2009, Ken won honorable mention in nonfiction in the New Bern Literary Symposium in North Carolina. In 2010, he placed second in fiction in the same contest. Ken’s writing career started at 50 years of age in what he considers to be the best years of his life. The only reason he entered the contests was to prove that he possessed the talent to write and verify what his friends were telling him.
