My goal from the beginning was to write the book I wish I could have read when I was 20, in the throes of my deepest depression and convinced I was crazy, with the hope of finding a way to get my story into the hands of those who would benefit from it. The first drafts of the book that became Follow Me, Friend were scratched in an old notebook with that goal in mind. Get a book/Give a book is part of how we can reach this goal.
Get a book/give a book is a buying option where you can purchase a book for yourself (autographed and with a special thank you gift) and a second book (at a reduced cost), that will be donated in your name to an organization that helps survivors of sexual abuse, those who suffer with PTSD, those in the helping services (such as schools training future counselors, therapists, and social workers, etc.). and others who will be helped (or can help others) by reading this memoir.
If you would like to participate in the Get a book/Give a book program, click the "Buy Now" link below, shipping included in the price (please note: due to shipping costs, this option is only available in the USA). If you have a specific charity or organization you'd like your book to be donated to, please note that in the "message to seller" section of your payment page. Thank you so much for helping me help others!
