Publishing book about bipolar and PTSD – nearly there. Pet Purpose. Own Voices.



My name is Xanthe Wyse. Diagnosed bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

My extremely challenging project has been writing and editing Pet Purpose, a pet-themed book about a character who shares my diagnoses.

Been doing the formatting for print and conversion into e-book myself. Lots of research. I decided along the way that I will write both the sequel, Soar Purpose (print and e-book formats) as well as write an e-book guide on how to write and format your own book, low cost.

I am very good at research and I have previously worked in a publishing company as well as previously been a teacher. So even though I forget things again, I may as well share for others also.

I hope to publish Pet Purpose this weekend. I have the print cover to finish, a description for Amazon to write (including HTML). Upload. Will get the proof copy which might take a few weeks to ship to me to check if colours acceptable in print cover. E-book should be available almost immediately, all going well.
