I'm writing a book about what it's like to be diagnosed with breast cancer at 26 years old, when you're already living with depression.

Hello friends. So we are nine, yes NINE chapters down, with six left to write. I am beginning to feel very confident (kinda) that the book will go to the printers at the end of the summer and be ready for y'all to get your sweaty little paws on in the Autumn. When we get there, I'm going to need you all to be shouting from the rooftops about this little book so it can reach as many people as possible.

Until then, if you want to see a little preview of whats in store, you'll find one of the chapters on my blog this week, the first of which went live today. The second part will be shared on Thursday and the last part on Friday.**

I've recently seen some of the images Georgia Wilmot has illustrated to go inside the book and let me tell you, they're bloody beautiful. I'm so proud to have my work stand alongside Georgia's. She is phenomenally talented and I can't wait for you to see what she's rustled up.

I'm speaking at a number of events this summer. Catch me at Crossing the Tees in Darlington on Saturday 9th June (tickets here), Trew Fields on 7th and 8th July (tickets here), YALC on 28th July (tickets here) and at a London venue near you on a date TBC. 

**Please note I have a no refunds policy. If you don't like what you read, I can only apologise. But you won't be getting your money back. YOU KNEW WHAT YOU WERE LETTING YOURSELF IN FOR**
