  1. Hola Jen, sound like a great opportunity and wishing you luck with your book launch, I can’t wait to have a read!

    Would love to be part of the team, and I’ve been toying with a tweetchat idea or linky based on being creative and chronicly sick. It could be a great fit for your social media marketing strategy.

    As a fellow Spoonie I understand the problems faced daily when you’re a parent in pain or have chronic complications, (a bread and butter pudding once landed me in Middlesex University Hospital) 😖

    Like you I love to write and will be aiming to publish some of my own stuff shortly. It’s kids utter nonsense but keeps my mind positive on sofa days. I’m also looking at another couple or project, writing a small piece for a health and wellness author and few guest blogs.

    The last few month I’ve been a bit quiet with new content, health issues… sorry!. And my website needs updating but I’ve given you the link, so please have a noise and let me know what you think?

    It would be brilliant to bounce ideas around and network with like some minded people. Your awareness campaign is fab, (I’m from a sales background so appreciate a good pitch). I’m hoping you can squeeze me to the team but either way I’m wishing you wonderful things and great success. Being a parent with a chronic condition is a challenge so I’m sure your book will be well received!

    Sending virtual high-fives
