“First Mistake,” An Amazon Best-Selling Book is Free For One More Day (07/20/2018)

Pasadena, CA – WEBWIRE

Best Seller Publishing announces the release of D.J. Chang’s new book, First Mistake: Facing Death, Finding Life.” It will be available for free download in the Amazon Kindle Store for one more day on July 20th.

“First Mistake” is both a love story about defying the odds (even certain death) and a spiritual memoir about the search for identity, partnership, and the meaning of life. After the trauma at age 9 of witnessing and feeling partially responsible for the death of her caregiver, Ah Kung, he becomes the author’s life’s spirit guide. For 40 years, he has been with her on her journey to make sense of the world around her -- from South African Apartheid to the AIDS epidemic to the fight for marriage equality -- and with her as she grew in love, faith, and purpose. “First Mistake” is a memoir that should speak to anyone who, like the author, is still on a quest for the meaning of life.

“First Mistake” by D.J. Chang will be free and available for download on Amazon for 1 more day (07/20/2018) at:

“First Mistake” has a 4.7-star rating on Here’s what some people are saying:

“‘First Mistake’ is a terrific book because, while it’s a memoir of one woman’s life, its messages resonated in a universal way. Ms. Chang has a deeply spiritual quality and when you follow her journey of life’s experiences you also follow her spiritual evolution. She seems to always be searching for meaning and for ways to find the best in people. Her descriptions of everyone from family to friends to lovers are generous and reflective of what’s good in them. I was touched by how she has a sense of responsibility toward people, even people whom others might dismiss. For instance, Ms. Chang comes from a privileged family from China and like most families in China from this class, they had servants. One man is so loyal to them that he comes with them to America. He takes care of the children and loves them as they are his own family. Ms. Chang feels his love and to this day one senses that she wishes she could’ve done more to show her appreciation. There is a heartbreaking account of her teasing her caretaker, as children are won’t to do, and thinking that he was playing around one day when he fell down and wouldn’t move. She soon enough discovers that he had died. This experience stays with her to adulthood and there’s a sense of guilt, but not just guilt (as guilt is a useless emotion), but a kind of commitment to be good to other people. From her accounts of her life, it seems like she really is. In fact, the overall message was so positive that I put down this book feeling really good about life. I highly recommend it.” – Maggi Laureys

“A well-written and intriguing story that pulls you in very quickly - though the philosophical questions raise may make you want to stop and re-read or contemplate what you’ve just read, the style and content make it hard to put down.” – Jeffery Harris
