Dear Supporters of Generation Ex,'s been nine months since Generation Ex released and almost every day I'm hearing from readers who have shared their stories. I am honored by your trust. THANK YOU!

I'll give a better update on my year in the near future. In the meantime, check the message board for almost-daily postings from me about the book, marriage, divorce, and life in general.

The big news today is that I'll be back in my home state of Minnesota March 3-13 for a mini book tour with my friends at Northwestern Bookstores. See below for the schedule of my appearances. Directions to individual stores can be found on the store website,

It's been quite a while since I've lived in MN, but I still have a lot of roots there, including:
* proud graduate of Big Lake Class of 1990
* Mom teaches in Elk River
* Dad and stepmom live in Buffalo
* My stepdad is a teacher in Anoka
* My siblings are all in MN
* My best friend lives in Brooklyn Center.

I hope to see you there! Please be sure to tell your Minnesota friends and family about my visit.
I'd love to meet new readers as well as see some old familiar faces! I'm working on a special surprise presentation at one of the signings (maybe two), but you'll have to stop by to see what I do! 

Again, thanks for supporting the ministry of Generation Ex.



Jen Abbas ... book signing
One of the hardest truths about divorce is that every split—no matter when it occurs—will have lifelong effects on the children caught in the crossfire. While most people acknowledge our pain during our parents’ parting, few of us realize that our most significant insecurities, questions, and doubts may not show up for years, when we seek our own intimate relationships as adults. Through research, interviews, and personal stories, Generation Ex will help you understand the effect of your parents’ divorce on your identity, faith, and relationships, and will give you the tools you need to create a dramatically different legacy.

Jen Abbas is an adult child of divorce who has dedicated herself to discovering how children of divorce can change the patterns of their past.

Jen will be signing copies of her book, Generation Ex at…
