T.M. Raskinabout this book: My book is a memoir about survival. Most people would consider it fiction; unfortunately, it's not fiction "Pink Tootsie" is a raw, detailed account of my first 21 years. In that time I faced many hardships, more than most. I believe that nearly everyone could benefit from reading my book in one way or another. My aim is to answer the questions, offer explanations and shed light on the disease of addiction, domestic violence, self harm and rape.
The title "Pink Tootsie" seems arbitrary but it's meaning is explained in the book. It was a name of endearment my mother called me when I was a child. I struggled with the cover a bit and am in the process of changing it to something more provocative.
I began writing this book twelve years ago as a method to purge myself of the experiences in my life, However, at that time, I was completely unaware of how much work needed to be done. After sending out what seemed like 1 million request for publishing I was left feeling defeated and frustrated. Finally, picking it back up I was published in July 2015 and am in the process of publishing a second edition.
Writing this book was an extremely painful, arduous, painstaking task but, something inside me said I needed to do it. Do it to help someone else, do it to shed some light, do it to help somebody else know they're not alone.
This is not an easy read. This book is not for the faint hearted, very graphic and may be difficult for some readers. It is for 18 years and over.
