Let the countdown begin………..

Noooooo not for Christmas!, that countdown has already begun 🤣……instead the countdown to my book being released…..☺️

After last weeks epic recording sessions, everything is looking good. Bloomsbury have even made me a new banner for my social media…..😍

The team at Bloomsbury have been working their Christmas socks off, especially Jonny, who arranges all the interviews for me and Akua who sorts the marketing….

Akua has specifically asked if I could mention all these outlets where the book will be available and is available to pre order…..

Amazon

And finally Foyles

After having read it last week, I’m even more excited…..I can only remember two sections…….the really emotional bits…..the first being all about my friendship with Sylvia, from the day we met, to the day she died……that took me by total surprise during the recording as I’d forgotten we’d written about it, but it’s wonderfully moving. 

Then the only other bit I can remember is the Epilogue – forgotten all about writing that too! But that bit is wonderfully joyous…….. 

So what does my book tell you……well, never give up on yourself, because even out of something rubbish, opportunities can come your way…..

Not long now before you can read it yourself…….January 20th being D Day……..☺️

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
