When I first shared my covers on Twitter, there seemed to be some confusion about “the brides different ability.” This discouraged me a bit about my communication skills. I think this is partially because I am keeping this project a little bit under wraps.
The Differently Abled Bride Guide is a wedding planner book for women with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Differently Abled is the PC term for those conditions, as either of those groups can define themselves as disabled, not disabled, or differently abled.
I am trying to create a one-stop wedding planning resource for women with conditions ranging from fibromyalgia to paraplegia and everything in between. This is why I have been conducting so much research. I want accurate and inoffensive information.
Yesterday, I had some discouragement. I was approached by a publisher who asked me for $20,000 dollars to publish my book.
I’ve never even spent that much on a car. That is a fancy car to me.
This came immediately after my favorite publisher rejected me. So far I have 12 rejections in a month.
I know what I am doing is risky and out of the ordinary. My friends were so encouraging. But I’ll stick to it.
Don’t give up y’all. Some day we’re all gonna change the world. We’re gonna help people.
