INDIE AUTHOR PROMOTION - WISE BEFORE THEIR TIME:
One book I've recently read is Ann Richardson's 'Wise Before Their Time'. Ann has been writing for many years. She is fascinated by other people’s thoughts, experiences and emotions and loves to write books where they can express their views in their own words. She writes on different subjects that captures her interest for one reason or another. Her most recent book is about how it feels to be a grandmother (Celebrating Grandmothers).
Here is a link to my 5 star review:
They are young and they have a life-threatening disease…
The year is 1991. Diagnoses of HIV are rising and there is no cure in sight. Coming from all corners of the world, over forty young men and women talk about living with HIV and AIDS.
They must cope with the enormous stigma, blame and guilt associated with the disease. And there are challenges in telling their parents and partners, trying to keep healthy and looking for work – all while facing an inevitably shortened future.
Yet they remain committed to celebrating the joys of life as much as they can. The book is testimony to the resilience of the human spirit.
First published in 1992, this book tells their unique stories in their own words.
"This collection of true stories is as powerful as any great classic of fiction." Sir Ian McKellen
