First off, I want to thank everyone who was able to come out to my book signing. I was so honoured to see so many people there, many of whom I hadn’t seen in years! It was wonderful to catch up.
I have pulled names for the door prizes, and the lucky winners are:
Last week, I met with my marketing specialist, and he was amazed at how well the book is selling. He said the book is doing very well for a first-time self-published author. So, THANK YOU to everyone who has helped support the book through their purchase. When I started writing, my goal for this project was to just have a published copy of the book, something I could randomly hand out if someone had questions about CF or transplant. Never did I think it would turn into something this big.
So again, THANK YOU!!
Rating and Reviews
If you enjoyed the book and think other people could benefit from reading it, I’d like to invite you to leave a rating and review on my Goodreads page. Leaving a rating or review will help others find the book. As the book gets more reviews, the website algorithm will start recommending it to people looking at similar books and who enjoy reading medical memoirs.
If you purchased the book on Amazon, you could also leave a review there.
As an aside, the book has been selling so well on Amazon that they actually ordered and stocked several copies of it, and it is now available for 2-day prime delivery!!

Christmas & New Years Blog-idays
I will be taking a break from blogging for the rest of the year.
After my book signing, I realized that many people have questions about how my book came together, my writing process, and what it was like to work with a self-publishing company. Therefore, I think I might write a short blog series on my writing and self-publishing process in the new year.
I also hope to do some live events on social media and maybe some Q/A’s or zoom chats, so keep an ear out for that in January, especially if you have questions about the book, CF, or life after transplant.
I hope you all have a very wonderful Christmas; a time filled with much hope, love, joy, and peace.
