Neither a salacious tell-all book nor a venomous bashing of the participants, Delicious Rejection shares the depths of emotions that James Robert Russell experienced in his relationships with the women in his life, both past and present. This autobiographical collection of stories and poems follows his amazing emotional ride on love’s roller coaster. He recounts the details of those relationships—some happy and some that still occasionally haunt him. He dreamed enough to suffer through the pain of disappointment, rejection, and betrayal, while also living every moment to the fullest; recognizing and appreciating the smallest details helped him soar to the heights of passion, love, and excitement.
As a parent, husband, professional, and member of his community, everything that he has done, written, or accomplished has been about what he was, not who he is personally. Delicious Rejection represents the mark Mr. Russell intends to leave on this world—an indelible mark about who he is and how he feels. These poems, stories, and expressions of his journey come straight from the heart, where the words originated.
