GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In what some are calling an invisible epidemic, secrets are slipping out of their hiding places in record numbers, ruining reputations and wrecking relationships. These frightening failures and foibles tend to break loose in break rooms, chat rooms, bedrooms or wherever people get careless.
Skeletons don't just come out for Halloween. Secrets are always trying to escape their closets and haunt human happiness. Most are minor offenses or quirky habits, but a few are scandalous horrors. Many of these shocking and silly secrets are exposed and examined in The Skeleton Code: An Satirical Guide to Secret Keeping, published by Morgan James and scheduled for release to major booksellers by November 1, 2016.
Authors Alla Campanella and Ken Massey have extensive experience with secrets—their own and other's. Ken has been a counselor and minister for 35 years. They know firsthand, and from others, the pain and predicaments skeletons create, and wrote The Skeleton Code to help people discover the freedom of a secret-free life.
The Skeleton Code is a satirical and humorous exposé about the ways ordinary people try to keep secrets, create attractive personas, and manage their duplicitous lives. The authors chose satire as a literary device because most people don't want to deal with their dark side--at least not directly. So the book divulges other people's secrets and the clumsy or ingenious methods used to guard or bury them. In the process, the book becomes a mirror for readers, helping them confront their own skeletons.
It is well established that secrets are toxic to lives and relationships. According to Salon.com, "several studies in the past three decades have found that people who keep secrets are more likely to have psychological problems and physical pain, both of which are relieved once the secret is disclosed."
The Skeleton Code addresses the reasons most people keep secrets and identifies the types of secrets that are most ruinous to personal and relational health. It also offers a pathway to freedom from skeletons that chronically diminish well-being. The book concludes with a spiritual challenge that is trans-religious.
