Reading and Research

I have been seriously re-thinking about my book Secret Anguish: Journey to Better Health. The book is almost complete. It is in it’s second draft, but I have been doing some research on two areas:

Insulin resistance and the insulin resistant diet

and

being a highly sensitive person.

 

The book covers other areas such as post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, grief, food allergies, environmental allergies, asthma, gluten intolerance, and I think a couple other things.

Now I have a lot of reading and research to do which means a lot of notes. I am not sure how I want to incorporate all of this into a book. It seems like a lot of information but I feel strongly my story needs to be told. If I can help one other person in this world besides myself from what I have been through and learned, then great! I can’t wait to help that person and encourage him or her.

So this is my task as of lately. I’ll get back to in a bit with all of the names of the books I am reading so you can read them for yourself if you’d like.

The Ultimate Decision

In this day in age when you have self publishing, print on demand publishing and traditional publishing on really has to decide which is best for them. For some it is self publishing and print on demand. I’ve done both. I have six books published on Kindle and through CreateSpace, problem is I don’t feel “published”. I don’t feel the great joy that comes with making it with a traditional publisher.

So I have made the great decision to pull two books, The History of Sackets Harbor, New York, and A Daughter’s Reflection, off the market to try and get them traditionally published. I know this will take longer and probably will go through several rejections. I’m no stranger to this process as I first tried this before any other type of publishing. I also have two other books not yet finished but working on: Secret Anguish: A Journey to Better Health, and The History of Watertown, New York, I would also like to publish traditionally.

Today begins the hunt for a literary agent. Time to grab some Teeccino and open the Writer’s Market. Wish me luck!

 

Have a great day everyone and God bless!
