The books received some good reviews; these included the TV presenter Philippa Forrester describing the migraine title as a ‘revelation – full of facts I didn’t know about migraine’ in the Daily Mail. The eczema title was also recommended by the same newspaper.
A few months later Summersdale commissioned a further 4 titles in the series – on IBS, hay fever, arthritis and anxiety. The IBS and hay fever titles came out on February 1st 2010 and the remaining 2 titles are due out on May 4th 2010.
These books are slightly longer than the first 4 in the series – between 35,000 and 44,000 words – and I have tried to make them even more comprehensive and useful for readers. Again I found The fastest way to write your book extremely helpful during the writing of these titles.
I really enjoyed writing the books and was again lucky enough to find medical experts willing to both review the content to ensure the information provided is both accurate and bang-up-to-date and to write a foreword.
