Publication Day will soon be here. We had a small mechanical delay due to the artwork on my book cover (my fault for wanting to insert too much info on the back cover). The file, by the way, is too big for reproduction at this blog. What you see in the upper left corner of the blog is a close similarity to the fonts on the actual book cover.
Blurbs (in this case, praise from mental and medical health professionals) appear on the back cover with a quick synopsis of the book.
My graphics team is chugging out "On Sale Here" banners for stores that will carry It's MY Crisis! as well as the Licenses to Cry (they make great bookmarks!), my business cards and magnets.
The colorful assemblage will travel the world within my Media Kits for book reviewers, to buyers of my book, and to book shops.
If you want to receive my publicity materials via E-mail, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll take a bit of time to download on your PC.
See you in bookstores soon! Yojeved
Save your sanity, time & money!
You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.
You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?
A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.
I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.
I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.
Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.
