I have had a diabolical week with massive mood crash, the most distressed I have been since 2017. Quit a job. In the process of moving after my parents disapproved of me publishing my book. Attacked by trolls. The first reviews are starting to come in for my debut novel, Pet Purpose: Your Unspoken Voice. Available as an e-book and print-on-demand (which was better quality than I expected).
I am on a low income and the only way people know about Pet Purpose is by connections. I appreciate all purchases, sharing and reviews. It is by connections - your purchases, your sharing, your reviews, that Snowball's voice will be unburied from hundreds of thousands of books on Amazon and shared all around the world.
Readers have informed me they are from at least 8 countries in the first month: New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, England, Northern Ireland, Malaysia and Norway. I only know this if readers let me know, as I can only see sales from various territories - US, Canada, UK, which isn't necessarily the country a reader is in.
Some readers have posted photos of their book on social media. Pet Purpose took me seven years to write with a 'disorganised' brain with bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Pet Purpose is starting to be noticed by clinicians too.
Help Snowball's voice snowball. So she is heard all around the world. From a self-published Kiwi author with big dreams. My amplifying Snowball's voice, you are amplifying the voice of the vulnerable.
