exciting stuff is happening and there’s only 7 days to go!
Sometime last year, I submitted a piece of work for a collaboration with Spoonie Survival Kits. I never expected my piece to be chosen as I expected there to be a lot of entries becuase the chronic illness community is such a large and diverse group of people, I was sure there would be someone better than myself.
BUT they chose mine! I’ve been over the moon and have tried to keep my trap shut about it until i knew for sure that things were rolling.
Pippa has done an excellent job of putting this amazing project together. It’s a collection of letters written by 16 young people all with chronic illness. The publisher Leesa Wallace has devoted much of her time and energy, along with her resources over at Wallace Publishing, turning this dream into reality.
Dear Chronic Illness will be available in both eBook and paperback format: the eBook is available to pre-order on Amazon now (affiliate link), and the paperback will be available to order on the same page from the 14th June.
All of the royalties from the book are to be donated to Spoonie Survival Kits.
The book contains letters addressed to long-term conditions ranging from POTS to endometriosis, from tumours to Severe M.E. The contributors include…
“real and down-to-earth reflections about life with a chronic illness– it’s lighthearted and often humorous, but it’s honest too.” -Pippa
Honestly, I couldn’t be more chuffed about this and I hope you join me in my excitement. Together, the 16 contributors along with Leesa & everyone helping to make this happen, have created an amazing thing that will shine a light on what it’s really like living with a chronic illness. I’m so proud of you all!
