The New Edition of “Becoming One” is Almost Here! :)

 
 
Becoming One Sale! Ohh, the best laid plans and all that! Just a reminder that the new ebook edition of Becoming One is coming soon! :) My original October 15th pub date has been moved back just a few weeks due to conflicts in other people’s schedules. I’m now anticipating a November 10th publication date, and I can hardly wait!

The new Becoming One ebook and print editions will be published under my own imprint, Swan Pond Press, with a brand new cover, and updated to include the latest DSM-5 criteria. While the original 1997 edition’s text remains essentially the same, the new editions include a new Foreword from Howard Asher, Psy.D., and an Addendum 2014 which briefly describes how I got from 1997 to here, and what comes next: Becoming One Every Day, to be published in 2015!

My offer, as previously stated, still stands: I’ve reduced the price of the 1997 print edition on Amazon directly from me from $14.00 down to $7.95!
 
And I can make this even better!
 

  • When you buy from me on Amazon, I’ll contact you immediately to find out if you want the book signed and/or inscribed. Just let me know within the two day time frame allowed.
  • Plus, send me a copy of your Amazon invoice that shows you bought it from me with the code words: THIRD OF A LIFETIME either in the subject line or body of the email, and I will gift to you a copy of the Kindle ebook on Amazon when it is ready to go! Send your invoice to me at sarah.e.olson AT gmail DOT com .

 
I can’t wait to show off the new cover, and to get moving on the next book with “the rest of the story,” Becoming One Every Day!

New Edition of “Becoming One” is Coming! :)

 
 
Becoming One Sale! It’s been a long road! I’ve worked to create a Becoming One ebook, and a new print-on-demand paperback edition, for what seems like forever, with many detours, but it’s all coming to fruition now. Yeah!

The new Becoming One ebook and print editions will be published under my own imprint, Swan Pond Press, with a brand new cover, and updated to include the latest DSM-5 criteria. While the original 1997 edition’s text will remain essentially the same, the new editions will include a new Foreword from Howard Asher, Psy.D., and an Addendum 2014 which briefly describes how I got from 1997 to here, and what comes next: Becoming One Every Day, to be published in 2015!

Depending on the scheduling realities of both my cover and interior designers, I expect to launch the ebook by October 15th, or sooner.

But I need some help. I need to clear out my old edition’s inventory. (I’m the only source for new copies.) I’ve always sold Becoming One on Amazon directly from me for $14.00, but I’ve reduced the price now to $7.95!

And I can make this even better!

This is such an exciting time for me, after many years of struggle. Thank you for staying on this journey with me! There is so much more to come!

Well, July was a Hot Mess :)

 
 
Best Tweets 090712 Trying to find normalI really don’t do well in summer. The heat and humidity left me nauseated and migrainy for most of July, while at the same time trying to meet a self-imposed writing deadline, and keep the Dissociation Blog Showcase here updated. I had issues with WordPress that I’m hopeful are now resolved. Plus, summer always harbors unpleasant triggers from childhood for me.

All this to say, July really sucked, but I’m still here. :)

And I have some writing news coming shortly that is exciting to me, and I’m hoping you’ll be happy to hear it! Thank you for hanging in there with me!

Every Day Is Child Abuse Prevention Day

 
 

I purposely held off posting about National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, its annual proclaimed month. There are always a slew of posts, which is great for awareness, but I always wonder how effective this is for the rest of the year.

My most-repinned pin on Pinterest is a graphic which provides a basic list of signs and symptoms of child abuse and neglect. If you click on it below, it takes you to a much larger, and easier to read, version. Or, if the graphic is not showing via email, you can go straight to it here. It’s something everyone should keep in a handy reference file, because you never know when a child might desperately need help.

 




 

Below is a sampling of my Child Abuse Prevention board on Pinterest, which currently holds 74 pins. You can get there by clicking on the Pinterest button at the bottom of the graphic. [If the graphic is not displaying by email, you can visit my Child Abuse Prevention board here.]

Let’s never lose sight of the fact that every day is child abuse prevention day.

About That Self Care Thing…

 
 

I think about self care a lot, mostly in terms of how I’m not very good at it. I struggle with feeling that it’s bordering on self-indulgence when there are so many other things tugging at me. And time passes, leaving me wondering why I didn’t do some of the simplest, most obvious things for myself.

Below is a sampling of my Self Care board on Pinterest, which currently holds 137 pins. You can get there by clicking on the Pinterest button at the bottom of the graphic. [If the graphic is not displaying by email, you can visit my Self Care board here.] I visit regularly to remind myself to be gentle with and good to myself. I visit to confirm that caring for myself matters. And I visit to renew my pledge that I will fulfill this promise to myself.

Do you need reminding, too?
