I’m writing a book!

Love & Other Stuff - The Book - Diane LeeActually, I’m not so much writing a book, as collating and editing one.

Because, you see, the writing has already been written.

I am turning this blog – The Diane Lee Project – into a book, and the book is called Love & Other Stuff. I plan to have this book ready by Christmas February 2015, so it will, you know, make the perfect Christmas Valentine gift for the person who has everything!

The idea of “booking my blog” hatched from reading Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. If you don’t know about this book (or you do know about it, but haven’t read it), it is a compilation of the advice Cheryl gave as Dear Sugar, an online advice columnist for The Rumpus. The writing is beautiful, brave, raw, honest: a wonderful read.

So I thought: if Cheryl Strayed can compile a book from online advice, what’s stopping me compiling a book from this blog?

As it turns out, nothing. Other than time, and an inclination to do so.

So I’m doing it. And it will be done.

And I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

Update

Love & Other Stuff now has its very own Facebook Page! You can like it here (if you’re on your mobile device) or over on the right (if you are on a desktop/laptop).

I’m looking for reviewers!

Love & Other Stuff is scheduled to hit Amazon et al in February, but before it does, I’d love to give interested readers a preview copy to review. It will be yours to keep, FREE and will be my gift to you for taking the time to read my book and write a review.

If this sounds like something you’d like to do, please let me know.
