First things first, I have a publisher!! They're called PubKick and are just starting up, but their methods of publishing intrigue me -to say the least!
What does this mean to you?
It means I'm going to be really busy over the next couple of months while I finish writing my book, and will only be able to write bi-weekly, or monthly blogs. So, I've started a page called "Guest Posts,” and on that page I will share other people's stories; stories that have affected me profoundly.
My first guest post is written by Josey Quinn and it’s an excerpt from her book “If I Really Wanted to Die: A Little Book of FAQs About Surviving Chronic Suicidality.”
I chose Josey’s story because other than her mental illness being different from mine, her reality and her words are the same ...and as I sat reading Josey’s story - tears streaming down my face I came to the realization that I'm not alone; and neither are you.
Just one thing before you head over to “Guest Posts,” Josey’s excerpt may be a trigger for some people so please proceed with caution. Her excerpt was incredibly profound and helpful for me and I’m hoping it’s going to be the same for you.
Stay safe and stay strong. Thanks for following.
