Welcome to my website!  Thank you for taking the time to visit!


My name is Cynthia Bailey-Rug, and I am an author.  I write from a Christian perspective, and cover topics such as Christian living, animals, self-help, overcoming narcissistic abuse, narcissism and a little fiction.  I especially enjoy writing non-fiction books designed to help Christians who are currently suffering through or have survived narcissistic abuse.  It seems only right to me to use my own painful and difficult life experiences to help others. 

My books can be seen on my Books for Sale page.  Books for sale are available in either paper or in ebook format, many in both formats.

If you prefer not to order books online, I am willing to accept a payment via PayPal, Zelle or money order.  I will email the ebooks you want or mail the print books via media mail (cheaper) or Priority mail (faster), whichever your preference.  I can autograph your print book too if you like, just ask.  Simply email me at CynthiaBaileyRug@aol.com

Currently, my print publisher says that they expect delays in printing and shipping books due to some supply chain issues.  They estimate it’ll take about three weeks for customers to receive ordered books.  If you prefer to get your order quicker, email me  and I can help.  I have copies that I can ship immediately.

Do not forget to check out my site for The Butterfly Project.  I created The Butterfly Project as a way to encourage survivors of narcissistic abuse as well as to help raise awareness of this terrible problem.

***What’s New***


I have decided to get into the podcast market.  I prefer making them to YouTube videos, so I probably mostly will abandon videos.  I will leave my YouTube channel up so anyone who wants to access the videos I have made can do so.  I also may make the occasional video to share, I’m not sure yet.  However, my focus will be much less on videos and more on podcasts.  Check out my podcasts here:  www.anchor.fm/CynthiaBaileyRug  I also have made available the notes that I used in my videos and podcasts.  They are available atthis link

Most of my focus in writing is on Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and it can be very draining sometimes.  I thought it’d be smart to find more time to devote to lighter things in my life that I enjoy.  A part of that is creating craft patterns.  Since many who read my work also spend a lot of time focused on narcissism and recovering from narcissistic abuse, I’m sharing my patterns on this site.  They can be found here: Craft Patterns. 

Along those lines, I also have decided to write on enjoying life sometimes instead of focusing only on all things Narcissistic Personality Disorder.  You can expect to see blog posts on the topic and hopefully some books in the future as well.

I also decided to focus on writing mini books that focus on one topic at a time.  These mini books will be easier to read since they provide less information than a regular sized book, and the reader can purchase books only on the topics that interest them.  Naturally, they are much cheaper than regular sized books.  They’re also easier for me to write, which is important for my mental health.  Currently they are in ebook format only and available at this link: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/CynthiaBaileyRug
