It’s Eating Disorder Awareness Week (#EDAW2017, in case you want to spread the word) and this seems like as good a time as any to write my next post about Objects in Mirror coming home to me, because as some of you will know, the main character in Objects is anorexic.
Her anorexia has affected her past. It is a reality in her present. It will impact her future.
It has impacts for everybody around her, and everybody who loves her.
Because Objects is mine now – because it’s home now – I can give copies away whenever I like and, so, for #EDAW2017 I’d love to send a couple of copies to readers who email me
There are no rules for this giveaway – maybe you know about eating disorders. Maybe you have one, or love somebody who has one. Maybe you’d just like to learn more.
If you have a story you’d care to share with me privately, or to have me post for others to read, feel free to let me know.
The main thing I need is an email from you and your mailing address.
Let’s say, for now, I’ll send copies to readers who email me during Eating Disorder Awareness Week (ending February 7). If the demand gets out of hand (!) I reserve the right to throw up my hands and yell “Pause!” but I’m prepared to give away quite a few copies, as long as you’re prepared to be a little bit patient about me getting them in the mail (I promise I’ll do it as quickly as I can!).
The one thing I think it’s really important to know about eating disorders is this: it’s definitely #NotAChoice.
If you’d like to know more about what I think, then reading Objects in Mirror is a great place to start!
And if you’re looking for help, please reach out. NEDIC is a great place to start.
