Franklin wrote the foreword for this new e-book by Louisa Leontiades, and Eve was the substantive editor. Plus, it contains dozens of original illustrations by Tikva Wolf, creator of Kimchi Cuddles! (Go team!) It's a wonderful little book, and you can pre-order it now in advance of its release on May 1. Here's what Franklin had to say about it in the foreword:

"The ways we respond to heartbreak, and the people we allow ourselves to become in the aftermath, are what really speak to the truth of our selves. We learn wisdom from the times we fall. Polyamory, for better or for worse, gives us more opportunities to fall.

"Read this book. When you’re done, read it again. The wisdom in it is hard-won. Learn from Louisa’s experience. No matter who you are, no matter how you love, there is something here that can make your life better."

Franklin's memoir, The Game Changer, is up for pre-order on Amazon! On the More Than Two blog, Franklin writes about why he wrote it, and why it's the hardest thing he's ever written.
Finally, after incredible struggle, the manuscript for my memoir The Game Changer is finished and in copyediting. You can preorder it now on Amazon. Writing this book has been one of the most difficult things I've ever done. I've been thinking of it as The Big Book of Franklin Gets It Wrong, because it tells the story of the most awful things I have ever done, the greatest mistakes I've ever made, and the various ways I've hurt people close to...

Check out our slides from this morning's presentation at Poly Living 2015 on abuse in polyamorous relationships.
It's uncomfortable to talk about abuse in polyamory. Social acceptance of our relationship choices rests on the premise that our relationships are healthy, and on separating ourselves from the coercive and hierarchical practices of religious polygamists. And yet not only does abuse occur in polyamorous relationships just as it does in monogamous ones, some polyamorous relationships may in fact be uniquely vulnerable to abuse--because certain poly...

How can the poly community avoid taking the path of the BDSM community? Creating safe spaces is just the start.

We're so grateful that more people are starting to talk about this important problem. Thanks to Cunning Minx and Poly Weekly for this great episode on dealing with abuse in poly communities. Everyone needs to listen to this - please listen and share widely.
