Who would have thought, 4 years ago, when diagnosed with dementia, that those words would have been typed from my fingertips….?
It’s amazing what opportunities can come your way even after the most darkest moment.
It’s a land so vast that the ripple effect may not happen as it happened here in our tiny country, Penguin random house has given me that opportunity to find out. Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice kindly reviewed my book there….
The cover maybe different, but the words inside are still the same apart from a handful of word changes for the good people who choose to read it will understand what I’m talking about…
The audiobook is my voice – another wonderful opportunity that came my way and for those over the Atlantic can be found here:
The name of stores selling my book, totally unfamiliar to me but apparently very well known over there – Barnes and Noble store, Books a Million as well as on line – all waiting for a new audience to read my book….
Today, I hope will be the beginning of making new playmates in these far off lands across the Atlantic. Let’s see if this vast nation embraces my book as many have so far, or whether it will disappear into its vastness…like a grain of sand found on a beach…
If it switches on a light for a few around the reality of dementia, just enabling the light to flicker for a few people will have made it all worth while.
So all you people over there, let me know through Twitter, my blog or a simple email, what you think of the world I reveal in my book.
Amazon US have already included it in their Best Books of the Month section under memoirs…..very humbling ……
I wonder if they’re ready for someone like me and my book, Somebody I Used to Know….?
