If you have bought my e-book, Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Life-Changing Disease, on Amazon, then you know that I am writing another book and thought it would be done by the end of the year. Well, it looks like that’s not going to happen.
I contacted an editor to get an idea of what is involved in the editing process. She advised me to continue writing because my story is too short for a traditional print book. In fact she said I needed to double the number of words. Therefore, I’ve added a couple more sections. There’s so much to remember — forty years of experiences. So I continue on, wracking my brain, putting down what I remember on paper.
The editor also told me I should add more “feelings” to my writing and not be so technical. Therefore, I’m rewriting some of the sections, adding some sensory details: the cold operating table, the sharp sting of the needle, and so on.
Diagnosed at Seventeen: My Struggles and Triumphs Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis will not be available before January 1, 2014
If you haven’t read my e-book you can go to Amazon and pick it up. It’s only $1.99 and about six pages long. It is a glimpse into what my life has been like since being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
