Upcoming Giveaway and Anthology Featuring Stepkids

One in three Americans live in a stepfamily, and more than half of Americans will live in a stepfamily at some point in their lives, according to the Stepfamily Foundation. Much has been written about the stereotypes and sometime realities of stepparent struggles and the “wicked stepmother,” but an integral part of all these changing families hasn’t been truly addressed, until this anthology: The stepkids themselves.

Hey, Who's in my House Stepkids Speak Out

Trish Eklund has an essay, Happy Endings, in the anthology, Hey, Who’s In My House? Stepkids Speak Out by Erin Mantz. The first book telling the story of blended family life from the perspective of the stepkids. Trish revisits the rocky relationship with her own stepmom, one of the main reasons she is so determined to co-parent with her children’s stepmom, and her own idea of a happy ending. The book is available on Amazon for Kindle now! To preorder the print copy: Barnes & Noble.

Keep watching Family Fusion Community for an upcoming giveaway; including a copy of Hey, Who’s In My House, and a copy of Blended: Writers on the Stepfamily Experience by Samantha Waltz, and a framed photograph from Trish’s other featured site, Abandoned, Forgotten, & Decayed.


One thought on “Upcoming Giveaway and Anthology Featuring Stepkids

  1. This is so great! I just love seeing more books come out discussing the challenges of the blended family. I’ve already pre-ordered the book! Right now I’m working on my stepdad book, interviewing stepdads on their experiences. My stepmom book comes out early next year, and then I plan to write the same type of book for people who were or are step kids. So, I love that such a similar book is now available! We need all the support and encouragement we can get! 🙂
