Hey guys! It’s me, Ariel — the publisher of Offbeat Home & Life.
You might know that I wrote a book called Offbeat Bride about nontraditional weddings.
Well, my new book, From Sh!tshow To Afterglow is a little different… it’s the ultimate offbeat breakup book.
It’s about how to rebound after loss, grief, and the other cruel crises life throws your way — it’s sorta the anti-self-help book.
From Sh!tshow To Afterglow: the offbeat breakup book
Sometimes your foundation crumbles. Sometimes you realize there wasn’t a foundation to begin with.
Maybe your relationship ended in a breakup (or offbeat divorce), or you lost your job, or a loved one died. Whatever crisis showed up to screw with you, it brought everything else crashing down, and suddenly life became confusing, disorienting, out of control.
A total shitshow.
You. Need. Help.
Therein lies the problem: Traditional self-help guides just aren’t for you. You’re an individualist, an iconoclast, a follow-your-own-drumbeat kind of person. The typical sunshine-and-rainbows, “live your best life!” books in the “personal growth” aisle aren’t going to speak to your worldview–you need an embrace-your-weirdness vision for growth and rebuilding.
Enter Ariel Meadow Stallings, who has experienced a few life catastrophes of her own and emerged from them with newfound clarity and strength. In From Shitshow to Afterglow, she offers a lifeline of support and outside-the-box thinking for times of crisis and confusion, sharing plenty of tactical tips for getting your shit together.
Along the way, Ariel never lets readers forget that sometimes a life has to be taken apart before it can be put back together better than ever.
Without sugar-coating how deeply it sucks to have your world shattered, From Shitshow to Afterglow gives readers a reassuring plan to for putting the pieces back together and emerging stronger than ever.
