Is it just me, or are a lot of writers depressed?
Whether you're a professional author or not, it's possible that you've dealt with depression in your life. I've been chronically depressed since my late teens. It sucks, but there is hope.
That's why I decided to put together a simple and practical advice guide for writers with depression. I'm not a doctor, so don't take anything I've got to say as medical advice, but if you're having a rough time right now, maybe you'll pick up a copy. It's free at most vendors.
What if you're not a writer, but you are depressed?
Well, this book consists of 3 sections:
- things I do to lift my mood and improve my outlook
- things writers can do to keep business going even when you can't write
- author interviews
So the first section is pretty general and could be helpful to writers and readers alike.
If you need this book, I hope it's helpful to you.

As I mentioned, The Depression Handbook for Writers is free at most ebookstores, but it hasn't been price matched yet at Amazon. If anyone's got a few seconds to spare, you could scroll down to the section that says Product Details, click where is says "tell us about a lower price" and plug in the BarnesNoble link, or the Google Play one. I'd really appreciate it. I want everyone who needs this book to be able to get their hands on it, and I don't want price to be an obstacle.
I hope this post crosses your screen exactly when you need it, or when someone in your life does. More than that, I hope it helps.
All my love,
