It’s time. Let’s write your book.

  
Publishing Consultant, Dr. Leon R. Koziol, offering professional assistance 

In his 2008 book “A Promise to Ourselves,” actor Alec Baldwin relates his journey through fatherhood and divorce. It became a best seller, and he was ultimately vindicated when his daughter, the subject of parental alienation, became a notable presence in the wedding party of his next marriage. 

I attended Alec Baldwin’s public interview and book signing at a theatre in Manhattan that year. And as we all know, Alec’s later career flourished better than ever despite revelations of a number of suicide attempts in his book. 

As he depicted it, they arose from all the judgment-laced publicity surrounding a frustrated voice mail he left to his daughter. It had been leaked as a custody tactic during his highly contentious divorce with Kim Bassinger.

Because the victim was so close and personal with the divorce litigation, he secured the assistance of a professional to help write his story. The name Mark Tabb is disclosed on the front cover. 

You may have a long held passion for writing your own book, perhaps a court ordeal, an autobiography or documentary to influence public opinion. If so, I can help you bring it to fruition with a highly diverse and relevant background.

We all hear about those wanting to write a book about a life experience. Sadly only a small fraction actually take that all-important step to get started and then stay committed to publication. It’s a complex process requiring professional guidance.

Having published three books in my time using extensive experience as a trial attorney, I recently became a publishing consultant to victims of court abuse. One book, tentatively entitled “No Remedy at Law: A Mother’s Fight and Flight From a Corrupt Divorce System,” is nearing completion. 

This latest book is a highly intriguing story which would have gone to the author’s grave had she not retained me to get the project going. Make no mistake, it’s no easy undertaking. It required months of documentary review, electronic exchanges and even flights to a mutual destination to make it an ideal product. 

Yours may not be so involved, but rest assured there are numerous publishing companies which fail to provide that critical personal commitment. Do it right or not at all, as I learned when my first publisher employed second rate editors outsourced as far away as India to result in a disastrous experience. 

I ultimately sued the publisher successfully and it went out of business shortly after worldwide publicity over the lawsuit which included a London newspaper. If you would like to discuss the possibilities, contact me at leonkoziol@parentingrightsinstitute.com or  (315) 796-4000. 

There is an advance payment requirement and contract dependent on the complexity of your book project. I would like to hear your story and will provide every serious inquirer with a free copy of my 2014 novel manuscript entitled Voyage to Armageddon. 

Hard copy and e-book versions are available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Lulu Bookstores on-line. Don’t let your story pass you by. If not for your family or society, do it for yourself. Get started today or share this with someone you know having such aspirations.  Let me help your dreams come true.
Best regards,

After all the hectic activities in Charleston, Dr. Koziol is focused on book projects for court victims including his own to be published later this year.

We received a wonderful outpouring of support for my recent unexpected trip to Charleston regarding the Walter Scott murder. It was a travesty with a natural draw upon my combined background as a civil rights attorney and parental advocate. Callers included a woman lawyer in New York, an aggrieved father in Florida and a shared parenting activist in Texas. We thank every one of you along with the media agents joining our growing list of followers with each new event.

The lawyer was uniquely encouraging because she spent an entire day reading our website here at Leon Koziol.com. She did so to support her long held view that the bench and bar will take out the most conscientious of their members, if necessary, to preserve a “status quo” as she described it. Needless to say it was one of many lively conversations this past week as I continued my mission for justice in America’s divorce and family courts.

The killing of a loving father by a cop to enforce a non-criminal support warrant raises the discussion of court abuses to unprecedented levels. But there are many more ordeals out there which must be exposed to the world if we are ever going to win this war of accountability regarding our children. Yours may be one of them.

Many victims of court abuse replied to last week’s post regarding my offer to provide professional assistance to those wishing to publish a book. In that post, I described pitfalls that can be encountered as an experienced author especially when dealing with “turn ’em and burn ’em ” publishers. I cited a successful lawsuit I brought against one such publisher which went out of business shortly after we settled with its insurance company. You need proper guidance to avoid becoming mired in such costly complications.

A number of contracts has now resulted and I therefore took time aside after the Charleston trip to prepare or edit manuscripts. At Wrightsville Beach, I took advantage of off-season rates and an inspiring environment to do my work. There may be no consultant anywhere with the kind of passion, writing and litigation experience to give you that edge needed to attract a reputable publisher. I call it a Partnership for Justice.” Call me for a free consultation to arrange a fee to suit your needs.

Does Your Court Ordeal Warrant A Book Publication?

In a Self-Regulated System, Abused Litigants Find Recourse in Books.

So you came into court thinking that your complaints would be properly heard, your case would receive fair treatment and justice might be served. Instead you left terribly confused, utterly disillusioned or irrevocably injured. This was anything but what you expected from your third branch of government.

Maybe you resorted to costly appeals and government agencies for an alternate remedy. You learned too late that the misconduct could easily be overlooked in a self-regulated environment. They’re all profiting from your misfortunes and would rather keep the disputes going to exploit this gold mine they call divorce and family court. Welcome to the justice system you never read about in civics class.

The worst thing about all this is that they made you feel responsible in the end. It’s your fault that a court system structured to inflame needless conflict has left you alienated from your offspring or courting bankruptcy. So what can be done? You know you can’t just let them get away with this. Your posterity is hanging in the balance, the way you want your loved ones thinking of you in generations to come.

Well if you’re an American with an ingrained character for holding your public servants accountable, you take action. Countless victims talk about writing a book to expose the injustices, yet that never seems to happen. Think about it, when was the last time you heard of one that truly tackled the issues? You may even have the ideal story. But a book project is a profound undertaking. It requires much more than professional guidance, it calls for a partnership committed to justice.

That’s where we come in. As a result of  our current series about court abuses entitled King’s Chronicles, victims from around the country have consulted with us to do book projects. We’ve already looked at offers from a mother in Michigan, a surgeon in New York and a professor in California. They involve good citizens wrongfully denied their dignity and basic rights.

Here at Leon Koziol.com, we’ve been at this for many years, sponsoring conventions, litigation and reform initiatives. Our current chronicles provide some illustration of how well your story could look with royalties to recoup court losses. But the road to publishing is paved with pitfalls and scam artists. If you’re going to expose injustices to the world, you need to do it right or not at all.

We should know. Dr. Koziol was forced to bring litigation against one publisher due to grammar defects, fraudulent commitments and outsourced incompetency. The federal lawsuit received international publicity as far away as London, England resulting in a substantial recovery and the company being dissolved shortly afterward. We can provide the legal proof and news references. You don’t have the time or money to become mired in such trial and errors.

With the unique background offered by Dr. Koziol, his 23 years as a  litigator in federal and state courts, and an uncanny ability to review court transcripts and legal documents, we can turn complex experiences into a story which gives you the vindication you deserve. Moreover, as a published novelist, Dr. Koziol can tailor your story to give it broad public appeal. Any other lawyer with genuine time must be careful to avoid professional retributions, something which Leon has already proven he can withstand.

For this sort of venture, a court victim is likely to face scrutiny from judges and lawyers. Indeed this is why you rarely come cross a real life John Grisham type book. To be efficient and effective, you need a manuscript that is properly authored, well researched,  free of spelling and grammar errors, and one that can survive the review of editors and legal staff of any reputable publisher. Revisions and supplements are routine in an age when nooks and e-books are replacing the old world book stores in the literary market.

Let’s face it, you may have no other recourse. Dr. Koziol gave testimony in Manhattan before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption for this very reason, asking the state to disband New York’s Judicial Conduct Commission due to its political and window dressing existence. Valid complaints were being disregarded, giving the impression that all was well with our court system. We the people knew better and many judges were later convicted by federal authorities, but what good did that do us?

If you have a book in mind, contact us. It may be the best move you will ever make. Call our office at (315) 380-3420 or Dr. Koziol direct at (315) 796-4000 for a free consultation. E-mail: leonkoziol@gmail.com.
