ABC – Day 33 – What’s Next?

My next book

What is/will be the subject of your next book?

My next book has the working title of Cubing for CFS. It’s based on a true story.

My 11 year old son has myalgic encephalomyelitis, more commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). He was diagnosed on February this year. My 13 year old loves solving a Rubik’s cube and organised a fundraiser at his school to raise funds and awareness of CFS at his school. He raised over $200 for Emerge Australia.

Using this as my inspiration, Cubing for CFS tells the story of Tony, a student in Grade 6 at Green Oaks Primary School. His little brother, George, has just been diagnosed with CFS. For a long time, Tony thought his brother was faking being tired just to miss school, however once they have a diagnosis and he realises something is actually wrong, he wants to do something to help. He comes up with an idea to use his Rubik’s cube to do something to help.

The theme of this book is about empowering children to find ways they can do something for a cause they believe in.

I am aiming to launch my crowdfunding campaign in the next few days, and then launch the book early next year. To get involved in the campaign, watch this space, subscribe to my blog, join my Facebook page, or subscribe to my email list, and I’ll let you know when the campaign is live.

There is another book that is well on its way too that we also aim to launch next year.
