New Publication Date & Sharing My Story

Due to small editing tasks falling behind (which is not a rare occurrence in the publishing world), the release date of Running in Silence had to be pushed back a month to November 15, 2016.
While this wasn’t the most exciting news at first, it wasn’t necessarily bad, either. There are advantages for me, since November is a less hectic month (considering my cross country coaching season will have just finished), and it also gives me more time to apply everything I’ve learned about the book publishing and marketing world for the next two months (like squeezing in more YouTube videos [now that I’m getting the hang of it], hearing my voice on the radio [after stumbling over my words the first time I ever did it], and listening to more YouTube book publishing podcasts for my own education).

As for this past week, I’ve had presentations galore, and I’m anticipating a two-hour presentation (yes, you read that right) next week. (“So do you want me to speak for an hour of those two hours, or an hour and a half?” “No, the full two hours!” *shudders*).
My most recent presentation took place at PechaKucha Grand Rapids, an awesome global event where speakers get 20 images and 20 seconds per image to talk about their topic. My topic, of course, was my raw food diet story to share the misconceptions and stigma surrounding eating disorders:

It’s an exciting time. I’m getting the word out, growing as a person, and smiling as I drown in the chaos that is my busy life (kidding, but kind of not). I’m happy to be doing what I’m doing and continually thankful when I receive messages from people who have found me/my message/book after struggling in their own eating disorder or mental illness.
Keep on keeping on right along with me! See you on YouTube/Snapchat/radio/presentations/here. :)
