Autobiography to be published this year

Hello everyone, my name is Lisa-Marie Kinsman and I am an epilepsy advocate/counselor to over 1,600 people worldwide online. It has taken me about 15 years, on and off, to finish writing my autobiography which is titled "Free at Last, My Lifetime Battle to Overcome Epilepsy" and I am so excited because after months and months of searching for a literary agent and a publisher I have finally found one. My story is quite different than most people who undergo temporal lobe surgery for their epilepsy nowadays, simply because when I underwent brain surgery over twelve years ago, it was mandatory for me to be fully awake for about 90-95% of my 15-1/2 hours of brain surgery. I host two of the few remaining epilepsy chat rooms online today on AOL and Yahoo! and have also done some public speaking on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation of Syracuse and Rochester, New York. If anyone is leary about undergoing brain surgery, please don't hesitate contacting me at LisaM11463@aol.com or JoanofArc1994@yahoo.com. I'm here to help ease your fears.

When will your book be in print? I would be interested in reading it when it comes out?

It should be out very soon. It is now in the cover department where they will be placing my photo on the back cover and including a small bio. I'm guessing around the first week in May. I will know for sure within the next couple of weeks.

The book is titled: "Free at Last, My Lifetime Battle to Overcome Epilepsy" by Lisa-Marie Kinsman and the ISBN # is going to be:
1-4241-6816-3
