Marti MacGibbon’s riveting true story of escape from human traffickers, finding true love, and conquering addiction climbed to #22 of the Amazon top 100 Bestselling books, and to #1 on Amazon Kindle’s list of Biographies and Memoirs, and held the #1 position in Memoirs of Women on Kindle for over a week!

Never Give in to Fear: Laughing All the Way Up from Rock Bottom, the enhanced edition of this darkly funny, dramatic memoir, describes an emerging standup comic’s drug-fueled descent into the underworld, escape from human traffickers, homelessness, and ultimate redemption. With brutal honesty, humor, and clarity, the author vividly describes her experiences as she rides her downward spiral: a near-miss with a notorious serial killer, a series of tragically hilarious misadventures in the California drug world, and a terrifying account of imprisonment at the hands of Japanese organized crime, to name a few. This revised and re-edited version contains three additional chapters that introduce readers to quirky characters, insights into standup comedy, resilience and recovery, and deliver an inspiring message about healing, hope, and courage to change.


Never Give in to Fear is a fine pick for both memoir and humor collections.”
Midwest Book Review

“Her raw, honest, casual, funny voice permeates every page…A dark yet inspiring look at conquering addiction and regaining hope.”
