What’s Happening with Head-On, Stories of Alopecia?


December 11, 2017 – In early 2017, I did a write-up for Publishers Weekly and BookLife, publications that are specifically for libraries along with other authors and publishers. I was pleased to hear it was featured in their December 11th publication. 

April 12, 2017 – Mention and reference to Head-On, Stories of Alopecia in A Mighty Girl A Mighty Girl

Celebration Time!

A positive review from Publishers Weekly – Head-On, Stories of Alopecia had a 5% chance of being reviewed as a self-published book. After 12 weeks, the review was published on March 19, 2017. Thank you Publishers Weekly.
