Personal Update

This is a personal message to the lovely people I feel honoured who are following my blog. Due to an increase in my PTSD symptoms, I’ve been unable to write new posts for Soul Destruction Diary, but hopefully that will change soon. I get ill like this with a major episode of either my bipolar or PTSD, or a mix of them both, about once a year. I always get better in the end, though sometimes it takes a couple of months or so.

The only way I’ve been feeling useful is by raising funds and awareness for Beyond the Streets, a charity that helps women exit prostitution. Some of you will already know that I have published on Amazon “In Her Own Words… Interview with a London Call Girl” from which all royalties are being donated to Beyond the Streets. It’s the transcription of a video interview I undertook with a London call girl for my research on prostitution in the late 1990s. She was a good friend and sadly, is no longer alive.

“In Her Own Words… Interview with a London Call Girl” is 77p to download from Amazon UK here and 99c to download from Amazon US here. It’s also available worldwide. It’s received a number of 5* reviews between the UK and US Amazon websites.

I’ve just made a trailer and thought I’d share it with you. If you’d like to share it on your blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or anywhere else, I’d be extremely grateful.

Thank you for bearing with me while I’ve been unwell.
