Open Contract Challenge's 2021 Grand Prize Winner's Public Book Released

February 8, 2022, Apple Valley, CA – After great anticipation, Dark Myth Publications (a division of The JayZoMon Dark Myth Company, LLC.) is proud to announce the public release of their newest project this year by the 2021 Open Contract Challenge Grand Prize winner, author, Peggy Gerber, and her winning manuscript titled Stumbling in CrazyTown.

Welcome to CrazyTown! Open the pages of this brutally honest poetry chapbook and stumble along with Peggy Gerber as she takes readers on an emotional journey through mental illness and back again.

Experience what it feels like to have fallen into a hole so deep you think you'll never come out, but then you emerge stronger and wiser. Examines what happens as people habitually compare themselves to others but then learn to love themselves for who they are. Encounter that tyrant, Dr. Google, a harbinger of health anxiety for millions around the world, but then banish him away. To return to your physical and mental equilibrium.


Explore how to reframe a catastrophic event and transform it into something manageable. But most importantly, learn how to speak openly about your feelings and not be ashamed.
Help and hope are running themes throughout Stumbling in CrazyTown, as you navigate the peaks and valleys of living with depression and anxiety. The time has come to banish the stigma against mental illness.

"Discussing mental health should be as normal as discussing the weather, yet we stigmatize it and those in pain suffer in silence. This book gives you an intimate look into the mind of someone struggling, doing the work, and triumphing, in a way, to see another day," said Stephanie J. Bardy, Editor in Chief of Dark Myth Publications.

Stumbling in CrazyTown. 76 pages. ISBN: 978-1-7372-9477-1 $6.99 plus shipping and handling and is available online at,, and wherever books are sold.
