I was quite excited to have been included in the December edition of the Wellington Edge. This is a glossy, 80-page magazine that is delivered to every home in the town. I was also delighted that it only cost me a signed copy of Akea.
It is marvellous to receive such a glowing review and to feel that there are those who appreciate how much harder life can be for people with Aspergers (an autistic spectrum disorder).
I am fortunate to have a supportive family and particularly a mother with an eye for opportunities. After all, if we can get such a glowing review in a town magazine, why not contact the magazine for neighbouring Taunton as my book is on sale in their independent bookshop.
But why stop there? Why not contact the county magazine for parents and grandparents and see if they would be interested in my story or my book. It pays to plant as many seeds of thought as possible; as the saying goes – “From little acorns, great oaks grow.”
