In Slightly Smaller Slices… by Louise Gornall #TalkFear #MentalHealthAwarness

Remember that #TalkFear series about Mental Health Awareness I told you about last month? Well, the posts have started coming out today and I couldn’t be prouder. Isn’t this first one fabulous? There’s going to be about four posts a week going into August. Mine’s scheduled for July 14th. Louise’s blog is the place you want to be this month, so if you haven’t started following her yet you should do that. I won’t be reblogging the whole series, so you definitely want to follow her as soon as possible. Another will be put up on bookishblurb tomorrow! And as always feel free to leave comments (on the original post ideally but I will respond if they’re here) and join in and use the #TalkFear hashtag on twitter if there’s anything you want to talk about. Contact Louise if you’d like to write a piece for the series. And lastly please help us spread the word!
