Hi there, and welcome back to the blog.
I apologise for not posting anything on the blog for the past ten days or so, but I promised that something special would be announced on the blog in the next post, and this is it.
However, before I get to that, I just want to thank you all for taking the time to read this post, and I hope you enjoy it. If you are a regular visitor to the blog, then welcome back; I always appreciate you returning to the site to read the topic of the week. If this is your first time visiting the blog, thank you for taking the time to visit us for a very special blog post. If you like it, I would encourage you to go back and read some of the usual blog posts I have written in the past; if you like those too, then hopefully, we’ll be seeing a lot more of you in the future.
Since I can remember – since childhood – it has always been a goal of mine to publish a book. I dreamed of what my front cover would look like with my name emblazoned on the front and dreamed of staring at it proudly as it sat on the shelf in my favourite bookshop, next to some of my favourite authors of all time.
While some of the visions I had throughout that time have had to change, the overall ambition of one day writing a book with a cover I was proud of and with my name on the front cover has remained a constant.
I am very proud, delighted and a little nervous to announce my first ebook…Wednesday’s Child.
Wednesday’s Child explores our relationship to disability, mental health, body image and more. The book tries to explain our identity and how it relates to mental health challenges and physical challenges, and how we may sometimes use these identities to overcome these physical and mental barriers.
Further in the book discusses topics around our gender relations and race relations and what, if anything, we have done in the past five years or so to tackle these challenges and how we may try to tackle these issues in the future, to cultivate a culture of true inclusivity.
The book describes in detail the challenges of growing up in Ireland with a disability with all the highs and lows that come with it—experiencing the fantastic highs of opportunities afforded to those with disabilities, to the social isolation and mental health difficulties that accompany growing up with a disability in rural Ireland.
This book is the definition of a dream come true. A lifelong goal that is finally coming to life. I hope that you will come with me on this journey and continue to make this a reality, and help me to do this for a long time to come.
Before concluding this special edition of the blog, I again want to thank you for taking the time to read this post. I hope you liked it. If you did and want to hear more from me and more from the forthcoming release of Wednesday’s Child, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the new TikTok page @MolloyWrites.
Until next time.
