Hi everyone,

I myself do not hear voices, but my mum does and has done since she was a teenager, shes the best mum in the world even though i had had to be there for her alot when i was little, through the self harm and in and out of hospitals etc....

My mum wrote a book called unwillingly a witch (think it was how she started hearing voices) and to be honest im deffianlty not going to read it as its way to nitty gritty for me and would give me sleepless nights.

Am trying to promote her book (on amazon etc) but i dont know what type of people to promote it too? do you think that people who dont hear voices and suffer with mental health problems would give it a chance? i really dont know where to start with this. shes also bringing out two other books about her and her battle with hearing voices (which im in but with a name change) just wanted to know your thoughts on what i can do for her with this?

any suggestions would be amazing
thanks guys

If your mum can afford it, a professional reader is a good start. They would go over the book and give an appraisal and suggest which publishing houses to approach. Publishers demand an extremely high standard - many more books are written than are published which is why it's a good idea to have it read first.

The Artists and Writers Yearbook would be really helpful. You'll probably find it in the reference section at the library.

Do you mind me asking if a publishing house published the book or was it by self-publishing?

The publishing house should be promoting the book. It's part of the service. Your mum's agent should also be promoting it.
