2624 people downloaded my book in my 5 day free giveaway for my mental health Anti Stigma campaign! WOW! I am so impressed, that is more than double the amount downloaded in my first campaign five months ago!
I am so grateful to all of you for downloading it, tweeting it and telling others’ about it. I hope that you will read it and understand the message I have tried to portray in writing my story about my family, mental illness, my life, adventures and stigma. I have one review on Amazon saying that it is a self indulgent story, but this is a story of my life and I cannot change what is true when it is about me! I have only written it as it happened and do not feel sorry for myself or blame anyone for my own actions. However, apart from that one, everyone else seems to ‘get’ the reason for my writing and appreciates why I have written it – to help others.
Enjoy and learn not just from mine but from all those wonderful memoirs out there that tell us of their true events, feelings and outcomes. We are all individuals and all have a story to tell, it’s just telling it that’s the hardest part. Fiction also plays a massive part in telling us of the unusual, horrible, wonderful, inspirational and possible things that go on in the world.
So, happy reading – ‘Escape into the world of books in 2013’ is my second message!
Not just for mine, but all we self published (Indie) authors rely on ourselves to promote our stories and reviews really do help, so if you do read books, please take a few moments to write a line or two in a review on Amazon, Goodreads or any other site you can – ‘Every little helps – it really does!’
