Black Friday Book Sale!

For the first time ever I am running a Black Friday sale on my book Alicia: My Battle with Wegener's Disease.

It normally retails for £4.99 in the UK and around $7.49 in the US, but from today until Tuesday 28th November 2017 I have slashed the price below half price to £1.99 in the UK and $2.99 in the US. 

You can buy the book for Kindle, via Amazon here:

Amazon UK

Amazon US

Make the most of this sale - I'm not sure if or when I'll ever have another!

If you know anyone with vasculitis or an auto-immune disease and they would like to read an amazing true life story please let them know about this offer.

"I was diagnosed with Wegener's around 6 weeks ago and whilst still being in 'rabbbit in headlights mode', was after a book to help me understand the condition better. Although mine has been focused on the kidney and lungs, the amount of detail has really helped me get a proper feel on what the disease is and what can happen. Really liked the format of scientifically describing symptoms and treatments in depth and then how these related to Alicia in particular. Found the book very difficult to put down and would recommend to anyone who suffers from Wegener's or to anyone with a relative/friend wishing to know more."  -  AJ Boyd


Thanks and an apology from Wegener's Disease

First the apology.

I haven't been blogging here anywhere near as much as I would like. In fact, this is my first blog since the end of March.

The main reason for this is that I work as a wedding photographer and we are now moving into wedding season. In the past 4 weeks I have photographed three weddings and an engagement shoot. If anyone is interested, you can take a look at my website here.  

And here is a photograph from a recent wedding.

Unfortunately I have been too busy to blog here and too busy to finish the edits on the print version of my book Alicia: My Battle with Wegener's Disease. I will be busy over the summer, but I hope to get back into the swing of things once the wedding season finishes around September. In the meantime I will check back in here as and when I can.

Despite my absence from posting, my Wegener's Disease Facebook page following has continued to grow as more and more people find out about it. It now has 218 likes as of writing this post. That level of support just amazes me and I am so grateful for everyone who has liked my page. I hope that the page and this website has helped some of those people in some small way.

Thank you!

Alicia: My Battle with Wegener's Disease is now available for the Nook

Over the past few weeks I have been hard at work converting my book, Alicia: My Battle with Wegener's Disease, into different digital formats. I first wrote the book for Kindle, and it has been available on Amazon since last May. In early February launched the iBooks version of the book for Apple devices. Now you can read the book on your Nook, through Barnes and Noble.
