If you appreciate my work with eating disorders, and would like to make me a gift, click below.
I will gladly use what you give me on something delightful. A nice cup of tea in town… Something that makes me smile. Something that funds more learning or helps me keep contributing my time to others. Thank you.
Aren’t book sales going to make you rich?
Very few writers get rich, and they tend to be chefs or celebrities… or celebrity chefs.
I’d need an awful lot of sales to pay back the time I spent writing and the editing and other costs. For three years, as I devoted time to this book, I allowed my income to drop to half its normal level. I stopped pension savings. The job of providing essentials fell to my husband. I was committed to this book and I turned down jobs and stopped promoting my freelance work. As a results my normal freelance work is still going very sloooooow.
I want to be clear: that’s a loss I have willingly taken on. I can’t think of a better way to live. I feel very blessed and very wealthy in regard to the things that actually matter.
