An Opportunity to Write Memoir

See below from LinkedIN; I am just posting and am not affiliated in anyway with this person, but she has a writing oppportunity, especially for anyone on LinkedIn:

Literary Arts Professional/Intuitive Counselor
I have a favor to ask of the group here. I really, really hope this is not against the rules. If it is, I will not complain if this post is removed. I am new here and want to be respectful.

I write about recovery from trauma, especially abuse experienced during childhood and multiple adult traumas. I write with the hope that it will make others who suffer feel not as alone; the hope that others will learn from my experience and spare themselves some of the grief, anguish and mistakes I have made, and help other survivors of trauma understand that the odd ways we may feel about certain people, places and things are often a result of our traumatic experiences.

I have written a memoir, my first, entitled THE JOURNEY. If is my favorite baby and the one I want to push and publish first of all of my 13 books (previously published by Lulu.com; will be republishing with ElleChor Publishing House this year).

Problem is, I have had varying responses to THE JOURNEY, and two concern me the most. Two of my very small number of readers have indicated that the book was "too depressing" to finish reading. One person stopped at three-quarters of the way through; another after 50 pages.

I, however, listening to my gut, strongly suspect that survivors and those who sympathize with their experience will "get" THE JOURNEY, and I would like to test that theory by offering the book to you for free in order to glean your responses.

Responses don't have to be published although you are more than welcome to leave them on my Amazon.com page as a review. No, this is not a sneaky way to ask for reviews. I am honestly trying to reach survivors and test my gut feeling that survivors as an audience will respond to this book.

Email me and I will send you a pdf of the entire book. For free; I am not kidding. My email address:


Thank you so much, and please let me know if this is against the rules. I am trying not to get in trouble!!!

Love and blessings,

Dr. Ni
