I’m so excited to announce my book is now widely available across Australia, and the world, and published by ImagineWe Publishers.
The book is a collection of my most popular blog posts, with new content included as I share my memoirs.
It has been a lifelong dream to write a book and I feel incredibly blessed for the opportunity, the love, support and encouragement from so many people.
We released the book on the 20th May 2022, for World Autoimmune and Autoinflammatory Day. The perfect opportunity to raise awareness.
The book is currently available in soft copy and e-book.
The book can be purchased through my Publishers website and through Amazon, Booktopia, Book Depository, Angus and Robertson, Barnes and Noble, and the list continues to grow.
Here are the links, to some of the bookstores if you would, like to purchase the book:
While I am excited about my book being available globally, there is one bookstore that has a very special connection with my youth, my life and my late Dad. Having Koorong sell my book is a dream come true. Here’s the story explaining why I feel honoured and humbled to have their support:
Around the age of 17, I had the honour of meeting the founders of Koorong Bookstore, when they were guests in my family home for lunch. I remember being so excited to listen to Pastor Bootes vision of national expansion for Koorong, which back then was being transitioned from being run in their home garage, in the suburbs of Sydney Australia, to opening their first bookstore.
I have always loved books and at that age I would spend my weekends devouring as many novels and autobiographies as I could.
I immediately held a dream of one day being a published author and having my book sold through Koorong.
Well today, at 57 years of age and with a lot of faith and hope, that dream has just been realised. How amazing!
Koorong is now owned by Bible Society Australia, and has expanded nationally over 42 years, with 14 retail stores located across every state and territory except NT. They also deliver across the entire breadth of Australia via their online webstore. They have access to over 200,000 Christian titles both in print and print on demand.
To have my book accepted by them is such an honour.
I’m so excited that my book can be purchased throughout Australia through Koorong now, as postage is minimal and the service is excellent.
I love how in the midst of life’s challenges, (in my case severe disability and disease), dreams can still come true. 40 years later in my case.
For those of you who know your Bible stories, that’s actually very significant. Moses spent 40 years in the wilderness before reaching the “Promised Land”. So, I think I’m in pretty good company.
My Dad and I spent hours together in Koorong bookstores over the years so, with his passing 18 months ago, having my book in Koorong is pretty much as special as special can get!
Thank you so much everyone for all your support throughout my journey to become a published author.
Without your encouragement through comments and sharing my blog over the years, I wouldn’t have had the courage to write this book.
A Very Happy Author
