I’m Writing a Book.

Hi humans!

Today I want to keep my post short but informative, and by the title I’m sure you’ve guessed what I’m about to announce: I’m writing my first book!

It will be an ebook, butย it is proving to be more work than I anticipated. I figured that since I can bust out articles and essays in no time at all that this would be a few week-long project…nope! Probably not. It’s hard to organize and put together a book.

The title of my book is “Anorexia Recovery: What to Actually Expect” and it is my take on a tough-love approach to recovery.

I needed someone to figuratively smack me in the face when I was extremely sick, and no one did. I read how to literally recover–eat this much, don’t do this, do that, blah blah blah. That’s not what this book is, because I know those with eating disorders logically know all of that information. While it is helpful to have that foundation, there is so much more than just eating.

This book is something I would have needed to read while I was in the very depths of my eating disorder, and I’m hoping that it can help people just like me, or even those that were not as far into an eating disorder as I was.

I cannot wait to finish this book and have it available to the public.

I’m wondering:

Would anyone be interested in a free copy of my book to review when it is done? I want to get the word out about it, and I hope that whomever chooses to do so would post it on various social networks and help me promote it. Again, I think this book is something that does not exist in the realm of recovery resources and I feel that it will be very beneficial and an effective approach.

Please let me know if anyone is interested. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sounds like a great idea A.M. Good luck with it. I’d be glad to be one of your reviewers if you’d like. However you should know that I’m not anorexic and not a woman.

  3. THIS IS SO EXCITING.
    I’m writing a book, too — it’s about my experiences in treatment — so I understand the struggle. I would be honored to offer any reviews and/or constructive criticism on your (presumably ingenious) compositions. And of course I would promote it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I think what you’re doing is a truly selfless thing, Annie. Taking the time and effort to write a book in the hopes that you can improve the lives of others, rather than just yourself, is such an insanely generous thing to do. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do (e.g. edit, spellcheck, provide an alternative perspective, etc.) to help you in this ambitious pursuit.
    Love ya, girly. Keep on being awesome.
