Royal Della Jane’s Journey of Life Uncensored
By: Della Jane Buckley
About the Book
In Royal Della Jane’s Journey of Life Uncensored, author Della Jane Buckley brings a much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories, profanity, and ruthless humor. This manifestation is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us, so that we can start to lead more contented, grounded lives.
When she first wrote the book in February 24, 2010, Della Jane had all her real experiences included but the publisher wanted them removed because they were a Christian publisher. She had included profanity and very unpleasant vulvar experiences. Over the past ten years, her friends taunted her about not telling the full story of her life’s experiences. So, after many years of debate and agony, she came to the reality of what the hell, just tell the unadulterated truth. Della Jane’s mother would always say, “Bitch, just tell the truth.” So, in the author’s own words: “Here’s the real deal. I know this is going to be a shocker to the entire community and particularly the church community, but I want to put this out there. This version might help save a life.”

From past experiences with poverty, isolation and loneliness, Della Jane learned to take advantage of different circumstances to rise from the ashes like a phoenix with renewed determination to walk out her preordained destiny. As the seventh child out of fifteen children, Della Jane came into her unique personality early on, which became the driving force for many of the decisions made as a teen and young adult.
