Too Good to Keep a Secret
Check out Tricia Duffy's Book cover contest…
Medical & Pharmaceutical
Author (I have written a book). Target audience is mainly women from 30 to 69. They suffer from an auto-immune condition called Fibromyalgia. This is a very painful and debilitating condition which is not well understood. I have recovered completely so this is my story from pain and depression to wellness and success.
What's your vision?
The book will be standard 6" by 9" sizeI plan to have both an eBook to go up on Amazon, and also about 300 hard copies so I need the back cover as well.I will be using CreateSpace to upload to Amazon.I can see the the initial entries sought to capture the pain and depression but now I have seen the first half a dozen entries I can see that my brief was not heading in the right direction.I want to inspire hope. My other book "Fast Train to Nowhere" is about Love and Light and Hope and a little humour. It is simple and practical and little mystical.In this book I want to show people the dichotomy of the situation, the problem and the solution. The problem is an illusion since they believe they can never be well. I don't have a picture to show you, I can only describe what I see in my head. I see someone (could be real, could be a shadow person) who is hanging onto the bars of the jail, in a longing and dejected attitude. Right next to them is an open door with light shining in with hope and a promise of good health and a wonderful life. All they have to do is walk through the open door. The reason they have not done so already is that they are trapped in an illusion - a belief system that they can only manage the pain, and survive the experience.The book is about HOPE, about LIGHT, about making the changes and re-claiming their life. It is about being well and happy again. I want the hope and positive aspect to be dominant. I want so show the problem and the solution.Please keep the author bio centred as I have it in the file. It is deliberately done that way, with no capital letters at the beginning of each line.I have just realised I need the ISBN up there as well. (Should be some sort of check list for new authors, there is so much to think about, Writing the book is the easy part!) I see someone in an imaginary cell. This prison cell is an illusion. They are depressed, in pain and begging for help. The Fibromyalgia sufferers imagines, or believes, or has been told that they will never be well. They come to believe that they can only “manage” the condition, or “survive”. However, the door of the cell is open, and, although they do not realise it, they could walk free any time. They are trapped by their belief system (that people with Fibromyalgia cannot ever get better) and by their fears. The book is called “Too Good to Keep a Secret”. The sub title is freedom from fibromyalgia author name Tricia Duffy
