The Hardcover version retails at $28.95, and the E-Book sells for $9.99. However, to celebrate the publication tomorrow, the E-Book will be sold at only $1.99 (and on some days as low as 99 cents!) now through May 2nd ONLY. You can’t beat those rock-bottom prices! In turn, you can buy the Hardcover version for $25 at my author’s website at www.KerryAshton.com.
Also, and this is very exciting news, my book opened yesterday at #1 on the Amazon list of Bestsellers for Gay Studies. I was and remain thrilled!
The book has received unanimous critical acclaim thus far in all of its Editorial Reviews. Clarion Books, for example, praised it as “A triumphant memoir!” Blueink Reviews hailed it as “A powerful and detailed memoir” while exclaiming, “Ashton is a passionate, unfailingly candid narrator. Using vivid detail, he crafts absorbing scenes… giving us a compelling look at being gay in a community that seed this as a source of shame—a record of one man’s hurt and healing, while those with similar stories have yet to speak of their pain.” The Online Book Club Reviews said, “Ashton exposes the innermost parts of his psyche. A touching story with a strong senses of authenticity. An immersive experience!” And Kirkus Reviews, the foremost authority in the publishing industry, gave the memoir a rave review, calling it “A riveting story, alternating between the troubled child he was, and the proud, openly gay man that he became. A moving coming-out story!”
And now today, a rave review came out on the prominent Book Lover's Blog, RED HEADED BOOK LOVER. I’m enclosing it below in its entirety below.
Meanwhile, I have to thank all of you out there who are supporting me by buying the book and spreading the word of mouth. It means the world to me.
The publication of my memoir marks the culmination of so many years of work, not only in writing and rewriting, but in finding a publisher, promoting it, etc.
I hope you and yours will all buy the book!
Sending all of you love and hugs, and again thank you so much for your support!

Saint Unshamed is a poignant, moving and inspirational memoir that will take readers on a thought-provoking journey while entertaining them at the same time. Saint Unshamed is written by author Kerry Ashton, and Kerry throughout Saint Unshamed will take his readers on the journey of his life from past to present. The journey the reader will encounter is at times heartbreaking because of what Kerry went through and the many events that significantly impacted his life. However, it is also an uplifting book in which Kerry will make you smile thanks to his positive outlook and inspiring passages. If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you have read before and a memoir that is the perfect combination of inspiration, fact, and poignancy, then Saint Unshamed is the book for you and should not be missed.
Saint Unshamed is written by the incredible Kerry Ashton and in his book he shares his story and the many pivotal moments in it. The reader will follow him from his four years at BYU and all that he experienced, including abuse, love, harassment and much more. The reader will also learn of Kerry’s conversion therapy which was three years long and all while he does this he shares poignant and emotive memories of growing up in Idaho and this book lovers is the premise of the excellent Saint Unshamed!
Saint Unshamed is a poignant, moving, and compelling piece of nonfiction that will help, inspire and captivate its readers from the very start until the very end. Saint Unshamed is an influential, powerful book because it deals with the topic of abuse as well as conversion therapy. I believe that Saint Unshamed will be the perfect read for those that have experienced some kind of abuse or feel alone because Kerry, although brutally honest about how he felt, still manages to inspire and inject positivity into the story. However, those that have not experienced anything Kerry has will equally be able to enjoy the book and take away something from it thanks to the author’s wisdom and bright outlook on life.
Saint Unshamed is an exceptional book not only for the author’s candor but also the information he has so expertly laced throughout the book. The information will help readers better understand conversion therapy and so much more and I believe that is really important because sadly these topics are not commonly discussed but they need to be so that no person ever feels alone.
Kerry Ashton is a remarkable person for two reasons; the first is because he is honest and brave to write his story and the second is because he is an exceptionally talented author. His impeccable writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. He is a pure literary talent, and so I applaud him for being so brilliant!
Overall Saint Unshamedis an insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topics explored and coming out the other side, then this book is for you and so Saint Unshamedgets five stars from me! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you won’t regret it! There is also a promotion on the book currently so be sure to check it out!
