Tomorrow is world book so what better way to celebrate the power of words, writing and reading to soothe the skin. Writing my poetry book, The Shape of Skin was a labour of great therapy and a growing love for my own skin.
If you love reading, check out this wonderful blog, reviewing three eczema books, Reading to soothe skin from the Eczema Clothing company. They’ve looked at books for ages, from kids to adults so there is something for everyone:
- The Itchy-saurus, by Rosie Wellesley (for the under 5s)
- The Shape of Skin, by Ruth Holroyd (poetry collection)
- Iron Skin, by Brendan John Lee – a memoir of skin healing and a very moving read
Where can I buy your books Ruth?
If you’re interested in buying a copy of my books; Anaphylaxis – The Essential guide and The Shape of skin, both are available on Amazon. Or contact me for your very own signed copy! You can find out more about both books here: My books!
Please pop me a review
If you have read either of my books please take a few moments to give it a review on either Goodreads or Amazon. It helps others find books that could help them live with allergies or eczema better and would really make my day. I know you are all ready busy so I really do appreciate every review.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support. Thanks for reading this blog and for buying my books and all the wonderful feedback.
Why haven’t you read my book yet?
I mean really, if you haven’t read it yet, you need to give it a try. I’m not very good and blowing my own trumpet but I am so proud of this poetry book (And my first book, Anaphylaxis) and still find it surreal that I’m an actual real life author with real life books on Amazon. It’s incredible as it was always a dream of mine since a child. It is not easy writing a book, but it’s been such a huge help for me, almost like free therapy, and I’ve grown so much as a person as a result.
Damn it, my books a pretty good if the incredible 5 star ratings and reviews are anything to go by.
Instead of urging you to leave a comment below, this blog I’m going to ask you to leave a review instead because this would help me so much! Happy reading my lovely followers. What are you reading this World Book Day? (Ok you can leave a comment too)
