Progress of my book



After a number of weeeks of sharing my fundraiser campaign with no response, I became despondent. Not for long though. A comment I noticed on one of the online M.E. support groups inspired me to pick up my manuscript and re-read it with a view to what areas require further research and updating and any editing required. Simultaneously I had a question from someone as to what M.E. is. When I explained that M.E. stands for Myalgic Encaphalomyelitis she responded with:

"I have met many people that have been diagnosed with it and I can see it is very hard for them- also some people I know also have other illness in conjunction with it..." (J.B.)

So I set aside a bit of time and began to re-read my book / manuscript. I'm happy to state that I have read 25 pages thus far. I have a list of areas to research in order to update information. 

There is a lot of re-writing required but certain sections I quite enjoyed reading. I look forward to seeing the book come to print.  It's quite a lot of work to do, to begin with I have another more than 300 pages to read not to mention research,editing costs, printing costs and more. In order to complete this I will require some funding. Since any income over basics of rent etc goes on health care or having to rest, I have not managed to save enough to devote to this important project.

If you would like to contribute towards the costs to take the time to complete research to make sure the book is up-to-date, to edit it professionally and to self publish, please either be in touch or make a donation via my crowd fundraiser below.If you can share the campaign, that would be appreciated too.
