I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started this post, deleted it, re-started it, pondered over whether I should publish it or not, and then pondered some more about whether it’s appropriate for October and so on. In other words, I’ve over-thought it. A lot. Finally, I said to myself, just publish the darn post. Are you wondering why I struggled?
Well, I don’t want to be perceived as talking out of both sides of my mouth. I mean it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month after all. I’m trying to sell something. Am I being hypocritical? I don’t think so. I hope not anyway.
The way I figure it, it’s my way of pushing back against the October pink craziness. As you know, I do not embrace most of the Pinktober hoopla nonsense, and I’m pretty confident this comes across in my memoir.
And as I’ve mentioned, I still love October and I refuse to let Breast Cancer Awareness Month change this. This is one reason I chose the image I did for my book’s cover in the first place. The image has special meaning as explained at the back of my book, but it also helps me take back October.
Anyway…let’s get to the real reason for this post – a sale!
For the month of October, my memoir, Cancer Was Not a Gift & It Didn’t Make Me a Better Person: A memoir about cancer as I know it, is on sale!
If you purchase my memoir and plug in the code oct5off, you can get the pdf version for half price!
Again, to clarify, this code is for the pdf version only.
EDIT: The Amazon sale price has kicked in as well. My memoir is on sale there for the rest of October as well, so check out that option too.
So if you haven’t read my memoir yet, but want to, this might be a good time.
Together we can push back a bit on the pink nonsense and at the same time, reclaim a piece of October.
NOTE: 10% of all profits will be donated to METAvivor.
Do you think I’m being hypocritical?
How do you reclaim October?
