Pulled My Book from the Shelf

Pulled from Self-Publication. Kitt O'Malley Blogging for Bipolar Mental Health. Eliezer Tristan Publishing to the Rescue.
So, I pulled my book, Blogging for Bipolar Mental Health, from the market. Shortly after I self-published it, my father died unexpectedly. Didn’t do adequate marketing because I was and still am in mourning.
Hate the original title, which sounds like a self-help book and is way too dry. Yes, I have bipolar and I blog. But, my bipolar diagnosis is not all I write about and my diagnosis is not the only reason I write. I’m a writer. There, I said it. Rather, I wrote it.
The previously self-published book contained four years of blog posts, dating from September 2013 when I started writing this blog to its five-year anniversary September 2017. I debated adding more content to it, bringing it up to the present. But, I’m too overwhelmed right now to do so.
Freelance writer and editor Janet Coburn highly recommended book coach Aaron J Smith, author of Cultural Savage, and Eliezer Tristan Publishing.
After messaging my friend and fellow mental health advocate, Sarah Fader, I unpublished my book and contracted with Eliezer Tristan (Sarah is the founder and CEO).
Aaron will edit, proof, and design the book cover. The book’s title must change. Sarah Fader agreed that it was a terrible title because it doesn’t sound like me. Title must match my writing style.
Wish us luck.

  1. […] I’ve mentioned in my previous post, Eliezer Tristan Publishing is publishing my previously self-published collection of blog posts. […]

  2. Deal is 70/30 paid biannually. $500 cover art set-up fee.

  3. No need for an agent. They are a bunch of mental health advocates. Sarah Fader is the founder. Just submit to them. Tell them your Kitt’s friend.

  4. I’ve looked into them! I’m hoping to query Eliezer Tristan Publishing with my own memoir, but first I hope to secure an agent. If I can’t, then I’ll absolutely query the publishing company directly. Thanks for the recommendation!
