Armin Lear Releases a Therapist’s Own Story and the Audiobook of a Classic

A THOUSAND PAPER CUTS: A THERAPIST, HER NARCISSIST, HIS TRAP by Heather Boorman-Morris, MSW, LCSW, is Armin Lear Press’s latest self-help book. It is being released concurrently with the audiobook of Cynthia Zayn’s NARCISSISTIC LOVERS (Second Edition).

In introducing her personal story, Heather invites readers to imagine being in an abusive marriage for two decades—and not even knowing it. As a bright and confident therapist, successful businesswoman, author, and international speaker, Heather Boorman-Morris was the antithesis of the stereotypical abused woman. Yet, she was the woman who stayed in an abusive marriage without knowing why or how.

A THOUSAND PAPER CUTS brings readers inside the mind, heart, and experiences of a victim of covert narcissistic abuse. With raw vulnerability, Heather shares her story, from love bombing to devaluing to freedom, highlighting the destructiveness an abuser can have without ever raising a fist.

In A THOUSAND PAPER CUTS, as well as the audiobook of Cynthia Zayn’s NARCISSISTIC LOVERS, you can hear the cognitive dissonance and confusion a narcissist’s target experiences. Learn the subtle strategies and patterns covert abusers use. Challenge society’s inaccurate conceptions of who gets abused and what abusers look like.

Both titles give voice for all those who can’t speak, shining light into the dark corners of their lives to let them know they are not alone. Through a combination of real-life experiences and professional expertise, the authors raise awareness of the abuse cycle and covert psychological manipulation. They join other advocates to shift society’s narrative away from victim-blaming and toward holding abusers accountable. Most importantly, they bring hope and shows that freedom is possible.

Both books are available worldwide in English, with the audiobook of NARCISSISTIC LOVERS distributed across more than 50 channels worldwide, including Apple Books, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Kobo, Scribd, Storytel, and Bibliotheca.
