I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, if not sorry.

I have been working on a serise of essays about my life as a child, father, criminal, human. I'd love to get some feedback.

http://joshstallings.net/noir-a-memoir-stories.html

I am 50, and I am sitting in the day room of a mental hospital. The world around me is muted colors. Scuffed white floors and walls. Pale green scrubs. Brown skin, light skin, crazy is democratic. Men, women, in between, crazy takes no sides in the gender war. Crazy takes casualties. Crazy takes prisoners. The day room is full. Crazy is the woman rocking back and forth wrapped in her Snoopy blanket, her once blonde hair matted thick as any dread. Crazy rails. Crazy cries softly. Crazy is my son. His eyes come briefly into focus. He looks around at the damaged inhabitants of the day room and then at me. His eyes ask, how did I get here? And I wish I knew. So I start to write. I think I am writing about my son. I know it is about much more.....

Welcome to KindleBoards, Josh, and congratulations on your essays!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
