Looking for Reviews for “Fluid of Life”

I announced earlier on this blog that I’m releasing my first non-fiction book, one under my given name: Diana Tibert. As launch day approaches, I’m hoping to have a few reviews ready to go either to be placed on Amazon when the book is launched or on its Goodreads page (which I have created yet, but will).

Fluid of Life is my experience with anemia. I never had a blood test until I was 29, yet I believe I was anemic since my mid-teens. Anemia is not life-threatening… unless it goes unmonitored and it lasts for decades. I didn’t know that until a friend ended up in hospital for treatment. Then I understood living with anemia wasn’t an option. I had to start living with the amount of blood my body needed to survive and thrive.

I’m looking for women age 25 and up. Why set the bar so young? I wish I had known this in my 20s, so I could have better monitored my blood and so I could have taken action sooner.

Why women? Because women have a unique relationship with blood. Our menstrual cycle draws blood from us monthly and if we don’t watch it, we could be down before we know it.

General Update and Book Reviews

To say the first 2 1/2 months of 2022 have been extremely busy is an understatement. It’s a good busy, so I can’t complain. While I organise my week and spend my Sunday listening to Kris Kristofferson and the wisdom on life he shares in his many songs, I’m looking at the book reviews I’ve started and created notes for.

I’ll start posting this week. I wrote a few movie reviews, too, so I might get them up. My intentions are good but when I get busy, I lose track of a lot.

In other news, Allan Hudson of The Miramichi Reader reviewed Natural Selection. The review was posted January 24th. It’s available here: Natural Selection by Diane McGyver.

Reviews Sought for “Good Mothers Don’t”

In a post earlier today, local author, Laura Best, requested those who have read her most recent book Good Mothers Don’t to kindly post a review. Reviews can be posted to the reader’s website, Amazon, Goodreads and/or Indigo.

As you know, reviews are important to authors. They help spread the word about their book and introduces them to new readers. The review doesn’t have to be long or elaborate. It could simply be choosing the rating (usually from 5 stars) and writing something. Anything.

  • “I didn’t think I’d like this book, but I loved it.”
  • “This book was weird from page one, but I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to the next book.”
  • “It must have taken forever to write this book. It was so long. It took me 3 months to read.”
  • “I didn’t know anything about goats until I read this book. Now I want one.”

You get the idea. Just write something. If you’ve read Good Mother’s Don’t or plan to read it, please, take a few minutes and leave a review.
