Seeking Book Reviewers & Blog Tour Hosts for Memoir

We Never Left You
By Beth and Rick Olsen
Genre: Memoir
Review copies available in mobi and PDF, 147 pages

After unspeakable tragedy, one couple must forge their own path to healing in the bittersweet true story, We Never Left You.

One moment, Beth and Rick Olsen were enjoying an ordinary life filled with all the joys and frustrations of raising their two children, Jessica and Joshua. The next moment, a drunk driver plowed through a red light at eighty miles per hour, hitting their van and changing everything.

The death of both their children launched Beth and Rick down a long and winding path toward simple survival—and eventual healing. As shock gave way to the cruel reality of their loss, they began receiving messages that proved the existence of life after death—a welcome sign that aided them in moving forward.

The Olsens soon attempted traditional healing methods but quickly found that counseling did nothing to help them get a grasp on their monumental loss. They then turned to nontraditional approaches—a decision that led them to Peru. It was there they finally began to undergo the immense physical, mental, and emotional changes that allowed them to understand everything—including the accident—happens for a reason.

Picture Epiphanies Whilst High Out of One’s Mind
By Hayoung Terra Yim
Genre: Narrative Non-Fiction, Personal Memoir and Humor
Review copies available in PDF, 178 pages

Available Dates: June 18-July 2, 2015

Book Description:

Epiphanies Whilst High Out of Ones Mind is a thought provoking and consciousness-raising essay series following a young woman's often-humorous and ever-poignant journey on the path to becoming a stoner.

Already heralded by critics as an “honest revelation of the soul,” Yim’s full-length nonfiction work entertains and educates – offering a decidedly unique narrative exploration of recreational marijuana use at the same time that paradigmatic law reform is changing the way the country legislates this still-controversial substance.

“I wanted to write a book that was accessible and fun to read, and – just as importantly – one that promoted responsible consumption,” explains Yim, a Third Wave feminist and dedicated advocate for drug policy reform. “I’ve learned so much about the substance over the years, both positive and negative, and hopefully readers will benefit from those lessons.

“Especially as we enter a new era of understanding, I believe it’s important to challenge lingering misconceptions about cannabis, as many are as unfair as they are inaccurate.”

Epiphanies Whilst High Out of Ones Mind is a must-read for nonfiction lovers, marijuana enthusiasts, or anyone interested in gaining a fuller appreciation of the opportunities and obstacles that lay ahead for the future of cannabis and its path toward social legitimacy.

As a graduate of University of Toronto with an Honours B.A. in Political Science and English, Yim is also a prolific blogger with a passionate and loyal following.

“I want to help shatter the stigma associated with marijuana, which dates back to the 1930’s,” explains Yim. “Epiphanies allows readers to learn while laughing and glimpsing the world from the perspective of an average user – breaking down stereotypes and exploring the beauty of the Cannabis plant and its many medicinal, sedative, and creative uses.”

Hi everyone. I am here to offer my book to anyone who would be interested in reading a travel memoir in exchange for an honest review. My girlfriend and I left England at the age of twenty to hitch around Europe- it was an amazing adventure. Please contact me, if you think the book is for you.
