The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself by Nicholas Tanek Blog Tour coming soon…..

Book Description:

Okay, so no one actually kills themselves in this book.

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself pulls you into the early 90’s New York City rave scene, in all its chaotic, psychedelic glory. The narrator grabs you by your wrist and drags you behind two teenage lovers from New Jersey as they tumble through a whirlwind of reckless hedonism that eventually spirals into a dark, devastating world of drug addiction and heartbreak. As a teenager, Lynn cried, “No one is ever going to write something for me.”

Nearly two decades later, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Nicholas did just that. The gesture came too late for our unlikely heroine, but his heart was in the right place. A broken heart… but a true love. Reunited after years apart, Lynn and Nicholas embraced their love and sexuality, and embraced each other, despite troubled pasts, despite illness, despite all of their imperfections and mistakes. They shared the kind of honest and shameless connection that few have had the honor of knowing, and most would never understand.

“We’re not hurting anyone. We’re just living life without caring what anyone thinks about us.”

“It’s the coolest way to kill ourselves,” Lynn said.

So turn the page, and pull the trigger.

 

I think that you will find my book very interesting. It is a very unconventional romance. The love of my life died at the age of 37. She passed away a little before Hurricane Sandy. With a generator to keep my laptop working, I wrote a book for the woman who thought no one would ever write something for her.

Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.

Be the change you want to see

When was the last time you examined your own values? When faced with scenarios you hear on the news or media how do you react and how does this affect the people around you? Are their values and reactions the same as yours? If not, does this create tension among you?

In my line of work, we’ve been examining the culture of our workplace. What makes a positive working environment and why? It boils down to one thing, relationships.

What I’m learning is that you have to start by examining yourself. What do you believe and why? How do you live this in your daily interactions? When we start to know ourselves, we can start to improve ourselves. If we’re so focused on looking out and judging others, making assumptions and criticizing, we fall into a trap of problems.

Start by examining yourself. Why do you struggle with another person? Why do you have a problem with this person’s values or behavior? What do you need to know or do so that you can build effective relationships with this person?  Start with understanding yourself so that you can understand the people around you.

I believe that if we want a change in the world around us we need to be the change we want to see. Everyone starts with good intentions. I am confident that at heart, we believe we’re doing the right thing. If we start believing this, then we need to start showing it. Attitude is everything.

I want my children to grow up believing not that the world owes them something, but that they have the ability to give back. To be empathetic, kind and loving are values I want to impart to them. I can’t do this by telling them, I have to do it by showing them.

Know what you value and examine if you actually show these values in all you do. If you don’t then it’s simply a value you aspire to do, it’s not intrinsic. Consider how you use these values to build relationships with others. Keep working on yourself so that you can be a better person to those around you. Reflect in what you do and consider how this impacts on relationships.
