Maria Jasmine Freeman
A pediatrician, mother, and university lecturer, who turned also an author by an act of menopause. An unearthly crucifying menopause, of daily seizures, gasping , and excruciating pains for more than 13 years, already! While I was taught about menopause, as a physician, I only learned it as a patient, the crucifying way-to me and my children
5 Sentences about the book:
Women at menopause are ill-understood, whereby their behavior is judged intentional or psychogenic, while organic changes lie behind it, from estrogen depletion. Men, one way or another concerned with a woman, should be enlightened about this stage, so they can support a woman they love, entrapped therein. Women should know the unthinkable they could encounter, so the insult of ignorance about it does not add to the injury of menopause. Mostly, knowing about the most extreme like in this story, women would be soothed that their symptoms are mild, in comparison.
The book was included in international exhibits, in 2015; London Book fair, Book Expo America, Beijing Book Fair, Frankfurt Book Fair, Guadalajara Book Fair.
How are you approaching the promotion of the book so far?
Through Twitter, Scriggler, Google plus display ad, and commenting on various sites.
Cover design and editing — who did you use and how was the experience?
I made my own cover design, as I thought I could best reflect my own story. No editor was used; I had my Oxford dictionary, and my self confidence, over my basic and AUB education.
I love paper backs, but ebooks could be less costly.
