We did it. We got my new book, STUCK…how to mend and move on from broken relationships, out before Christmas!
I’m pretty excited about this book. The early reviews are great! As I was writing the book I felt like people were going to get some very practical help by reading it. The first reviews seem to prove that’s true. There’s nothing more rewarding than to hear that back from people. It makes all those late nights of writing and rewriting worth it.
One reviewer wrote: STUCK… can be summed up in one word–brilliant…I have read books on anger and forgiveness written by famous theologians and pastors of mega churches, and though they have been helpful in their own right, this particular one hit home for me like no other has. read full review
No One Likes Getting STUCK
I think we all know what it’s like to be stuck in a broken relationship. It can be with anyone: your spouse, your child, a co-worker, a friend, or your parents. It’s frustrating. You feel boxed in with no way out. Nothing changes. No matter what you do things just seem to get worse. Ugh. You either walk away or resign yourself to a terminally bad relationship. Neither option is good.
If you are STUCK in a relationship or if you know someone who is, I hope you will consider getting this book. It’s not a magic pill. Any broken relationship takes work. But STUCK is a guidebook to show you the way through the chaos.

Would You Tell Others About STUCK?
I’d love it if you’d be willing to forward this post on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks!
Regular readers know that I’m two weeks out from releasing my new book: STUCK…how to mend and move on from broken relationships.
Here’s a time limited offer for a free book. I need ten people to review STUCK and post a review on amazon.com BEFORE the book goes on sale on December 18. If you agree to do that, I’ll send you a free pdf copy of the book AND send you the Kindle version for free once the review is posted.
Here’s a description from the back cover:
We’ve all been stuck:
- stuck in traffic,
- stuck in the mud,
- stuck in the middle…
But getting stuck in a broken relationship is one of the worst places to be stuck. It leaves you hurt and confused: not knowing what to do next.
If that’s where you find yourself today, then STUCK may be the very thing to help you get unstuck. F. Remy Diederich provides his readers with practical, spiritual insight into the problem of relational breakdowns. He offers helpful analysis of the role of anger in your conflict and then carefully suggests approaches, often step-by-step, to help you navigate the process of restoring broken relationships.
F. Remy Diederich’s writing is rich in biblical thought and counsel but not simplistic in its application or blind to the realities of human weakness. Issues of anger, grief, boundaries, and forgiveness are carefully looked at from a spiritual perspective. While encouraging reconciliation the author is also aware that reconciliation is not always possible and offers alternatives. Because of STUCK’s helpful “how-to” nature you will want to highlight key thoughts and return to them again and again.
If you are “stuck” in a broken relationship, do yourself a favor and read this book. It could be just the thing you need to help you get unstuck and move on with your life.

I’m excited to offer my new sampler of my upcoming book STUCK…how to mend and move on from broken relationships. I’ll tell you how to get it in a minute.
STUCK…how to mend and move on from broken relationships
I made the mistake of thinking that I could easily turn a curriculum of mine on forgiveness into a book. Well…I could have but then I came up with the idea of using being “stuck” as a metaphor for how it feels to be in a broken relationship. So I rewrote the entire book with that theme it mind.
Plus I added a number of real life stories. STUCK is a hands on guide to help you understand what causes relationships to break down and then how to get them moving again. It’s also very realistic. There are times when relationships can’t be restored. I address that as well with practical steps.
It’s a spiritual book. I just don’t see how people can navigate broken relationships without the wisdom and strength of God. So I don’t shy away from quoting the Bible and talking about how God can help you through your mess. But I always write with the non-believer in mind. So even if you don’t buy the God “thing” or the Bible, the principles make sense and offer solid wisdom.
The book is due to release the week before Christmas. At the back of the sampler I give a special offer:
If you are one of the first 50 people to read and review the book (on amazon.com and your blog or Facebook) I’ll give you the links to my four-hour seminar/audio book that is the basis for the book STUCK.
More details are at the back of the sampler. If possible, we’ll make the book available for sale early to these 50 people so the reviews will be ready on amazon.com on Day One.
To get the STUCK Sampler do the following:
- If you have not yet subscribed to this blog, subscribe AND share this post with your Facebook, Twitter, etc friends by clicking below. I’ll send you a pdf file of the sampler.
- If you are already a subscriber, leave a comment below about why you’d like to read the book AND share this post with your Facebook, Twitter, etc. friends by clicking below.
I’m looking forward to dialoguing with everyone about the book. Broken relationships often consume us. Wouldn’t it be great if we could work on them together?
