Progress on Life After Lithium

I am very pleased to say that Life After Lithium is almost finished, that is, the first draft of the book. I believe I have roughly 3,000 to 5,000 words remaining. The total word count is just where I want it to be. Since I first announced what the chapter titles were I have changed around a few chapters, moving them and re-titling. I added a number of new chapters.

I hadn’t realized I was this close to completion. Next week I will have longer blocks of free time to work on the book. I don’t believe I will finish next week because of pressing tasks I need to complete, including paying bills and calculating my taxes.

I hope my book pisses off a lot of people, especially those who are totally convinced that no patient can ever leave the System.  I hope to piss off anyone who believes in the validity of psych diagnoses. At the same time I hope to encourage anyone who wants to leave or is doubting the System. I hope the book paves the way for more survivors by showing an example of someone who succeeded.

Welcome back!

  1. Julie, you’re the psychopharmaceutical mafia’s worst nightmare! Can’t wait to see it! You’ll be selling it as an e-book, won’t you?

    1. Yes! Primarily as an ebook and I hope to sell it for a dollar a copy to be available to as many people as possibe! I have also had requests for the hard copy which will cost more. Not much more, I hope!
