“Dyane’s new book Birth of a New Brain: Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder is a phenomenal gift to the mental illness community, especially for postpartum sufferers. Harwood’s clever weave of gut-wrenching honesty entwined with intricate story-telling is rare in this under-profiled illness. Already a prized advocate for mental illness, Birth of a New Brain: Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder proves to be an important addition in the world, starting with postpartum sufferers. Her story will continue to impact countless people long after its publication and shed light on loved ones and the professionals who treat them. Dyane is a prolific, seasoned writer, probably the greatest contemporary I’ve read, and has already provided valuable insight in our shared field through the her blog, “Birth of a New Brain”, Huffington Post articles and other periodicals. Personally, I draw from her enthusiasm and challenge you to do the same. Buy this book and delve into Dyane’s incredible story, one which untangles this baffling and under-reported illness of postpartum bipolar disorder. Prepare to be moved. You won’t regret it.”

      • Thank YOU for your gracious words! 🙂 I’m so pleased that you like the font!!!
        I hope you’re having a blast at the Lit Festival. I wish I were there, especially if there’s a yummy Welsh cake to be had. (I’ll never let that one go, ha ha ha!)

  1. Reblogged this on Birth of a New Brain and commented:
    I want to thank my writing mentor Wendy K. Williamson for writing this wonderful review of my book! I only paid her five bucks to do it! 😉

    If it wasn’t for Wendy, I don’t know if my book would have been “born”! I’m forever grateful to this intrepid writer for her encouragement, humor and wisdom.

    Wendy’s belief that my writing was good enough to share with others truly kept me going. Be sure to check out her two books “I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar” (a superb memoir) and “Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival” (which I wish I had in 2007 when I was diagnosed!) and please follow her blog & Twitter too.

    Wendy has some amazing blog posts – one of my favorites is this one called “Go Ahead Writer” :

    Once again, Wendy, thank you. I’ll always be in your debt unless I win the California SuperLotto Plus jackpot – in that case, I’ll build a writer’s colony and name it the Wendy K. Williamson Center for the Literary Arts. It will have a cafe called “Diner Girl,” a bookstore heavily stocked with her books, and I’ll give you a million dollar stipend! How does that sound? (I wish I could do that!!)
