With 2020 just around the corner, I have been thinking about blog posts for next year.  One of my goals, besides keeping the Living Our Best Life weekly questions, is to review at least 6 books that are written by an author who is chronically ill.

Not only do I know what it is like to live with multiple chronic illnesses, I also know how much work goes into writing and self-publishing a book and the enormous amount of effort it takes to promote your publications.  So next year I would like to help out my  fellow spoonies and promote their work.

If you would like me to do a review of your book, that I will purchase, please leave me a message in the comment section.  The book does not have to be about  illness, but the author must live with at least one chronic ailment.

I look forward to reading your work!

  1. That’s cool Wendi! I think you have already read my book (One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life), but I would love to read a review by you. As you know, I have Celiac disease and I also suffer from Cachexia. I’m looking forward to reading the book you sent me!😊 God bless!

    • Thank you so much Ryan for leaving your book here again, as no I have not read it yet.
      Your book is packaged but not yet wrapped. I had a rough weekend and now we are in a snow storm. My plan is to send it out Wednesday, Lord willing. Thank you!

  2. Have you ever read Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand about Louis Zamperini, a track star in the US Olympics team who was in a Japanese POW camp in WWII? The author, Lauren Hillenbrand, has Chronic fatigue syndrome. She wrote Seabiscuit also, but I haven’t read that one.

    • I have not read either of those books – thank you for letting me know! I am hoping to help out fellow bloggers who also write so I am praying that they will see this blog and leave me a comment.
      Hope today is good for you Barbara! God bless you.


  3. I’m an inspiring author and I have a lot of beta or unfinished work. A few are published on Wattpad @DedaLive999. There are five short stories that I will compile into a series of short stories after rewrite. Thank you for the possible opportunity to be read. :3

      • I am so very sorry that you have been living with illnesses so long. I know what a toll that can take on your mind, body and soul. You will be number 6 of the books I review this year. I have done one review and have 5 more to go. Your will be last so it will be sometime towards the end of the year. I look forward to reading your work. Thanks again for contacting me.
