San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

"’Gravel Soldiers’ by Terry Iwanski is a bold, frank, explicit, yet poignant memoir of one man’s struggle to embrace the sadness of his turbulent past filled with parental neglect, spousal abuse, and personal loneliness. It is also a profound memoir of a man finding, at long last, the soulmate and genuine ‘true love’ of his life." - Jeffrey T. Babcock, Amazon Review.

Self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet will soon display Terry Iwanski’s gripping memoir “Gravel Soldiers” at the 38th Annual Printers Row Lit Fest. The book fair will occur on September 9-10, 2023, at Printers Row Park, South Loop, Chicago, Illinois.

Within the pages of “Gravel Soldiers,” the reader is invited to witness a life unfiltered, to walk hand in hand with the author as he navigates the shadows of his youth, threading his way through the streets of St. Paul, Nebraska. The echoes of history reverberate through his footsteps, propelling him forward even as he peers into the abandoned remnants of a forgotten town, questing for meaning amid the ruins.

This is not just a memoir but a vivid coming-of-age odyssey that brims with the relentless energy of youth. Terry’s journey spans the spectrum of human experience, from the intoxicating allure of fast cars and reckless behavior to the entangled complexities of relationships fraught with pain and betrayal. The story takes daring detours, leading readers through biker escapades across the Midwest and delving into encounters with the law.

At its core, “Gravel Soldiers” is a tale of finding love – not just any love, but the genuine, soul-deep kind that lights up life’s darkest corners. Terry’s journey leads him to the shores of redemption, where he discovers the power to heal and transform.
