Exclusive Preview – Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Blurb

Hi everyone

I am still working on the final edit of my book and it is taking longer than I expected, but it will be worth the wait.

After a short break, I am working back in my day job again, and I start teaching Blogging as an aid to recovery on Monday 24th of February. I had planned to publish my book in February, depending on how long it took to edit it to a standard that I am happy with. Although I have people waiting to buy my book, I won’t compromise on quality, and I know they wouldn’t want me to. It looks likely I will publish it in March rather than February.

I now own the copyright of the book cover illustration and design, although credit still goes to my illustrator Victoria Warby for creating it. I think she has done a fantastic job.

Please note that the entire book cover is copyrighted and will be revealed in the future – For now, I can exclusively reveal the Book Blurb.

I would love to have your feedback on the blurb.

Always remember, your writing dreams can come true, if you work hard and believe in your abilities as a writer.

    1. Hi Madeline, that is such an honour. Thank you so much for the award and for saying that I write in an authentic voice. I always believe I write from my heart and I am glad it shows. I am thrilled and accept it with much pleasure. I will officially accept it in a blog post, although that is likely to be next month, as I am tied up with finishing my book editing and teaching the Blogging as an aid to recovery course, alongside my day job. Thank you once again.


    2. Hi Madeline, I am really thankful that you like my writing so much. I would love to include this comment on my Testimonials page if you were happy for me to. With a link to your blog, of course?


  1. I apologize for late reply. You are an incredible woman. I also read your post about the NHS. I understand, act like you do, is a remarkable work. I have not even finished writing a book, which I wrote about five years ago. Yes, I sincerely say, I am happy to be your friends and reading your posts. If it were, people act and think like you, I think the world would be better than today. Thank you for writing long comments. I feel amazing, hear from you, who are willing to devote time to the communities and friends. In fact, you are busy with book, and your job every day 🙂 I am sure, your life overflowing with blessings. :). Hilal Achmar


    1. Hi Hilal, apologies for my late reply to yours. Your words are truly beautiful and encouraging. I feel absolutely honoured that you feel the world would be a better place if people were to act and think like me. Those kind words have touched the inside of my heart and created a warm flowing glow. It is a pleasure to know you. Thank you my friend.


  2. Your book should be a big hit Sandra! I have been made redundant twice and have been unable to return to paid employment since the last time in 2011 as I have my daughter who has Asperger’s Syndrome to look after as she needs constant motivation. I now receive a carer’s allowance which is my only income but of course I have my husband’s income too. My writing and blogging is what keeps me going but I went through a really rough time after both redundancies for all the reasons you cite. I wish I had your book then.

    Funnily enough, I am going to be writing a post about redundancy and it’s effect on me at some point. I don’t think some of my friends really understand what a lonely place it can be sometimes. Several of them read my blog but never comment other than saying they enjoy reading it but I hardly see them anymore. I think they think I’m ok, soaring ahead with my writing dreams and living the life at home, doing what I want whenever I want but they don’t understand the reality of it all.

    Anyway, I wish you all the very best with your publication and look forward to hearing more as the time draws closer.

    1. Thanks Sherri. That is so awesome to hear. I wish I could quote that in my book. I am still doing the final edit of the book content at the moment and that would be a great addition to it. I am trying to catch up on blog comments and emails. I think you left a comment before that I have yet to reply to. Thanks so much for your kind words and supportxx


      1. Well I would be delighted to have you quote me in your book if there was time…but feel free if there is anything in my comment you would like to use.
        Don’t worry, I fully understand, just concentrate on your book right now and know we are all rooting for you. I need to get on with my writing too 🙂 xx


  3. Sounds great, as an unemployed chappie myself these days I will take a great interest in it. I am happy that you aren’t bowing to pressure and compromising on your work…it bodes well.


    1. Thanks Ste, I had no idea that you were unemployed. I hope you find the book useful. The book is unique because I have blended two genres together, an A-Z guide with a How-to book. It has been quite a challenge to merge the two together. I don’t know if you were aware that I have two websites that are free resources for people who are redundant or job seeking? http://www.beatredundancyblues.com and http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk The main difference is, the first site has links to job sites in other countries, and the latter site has a blog incorporated into it, with more useful information and help. In case you didn’t know, I also have another WordPress blog – http://www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com

      I don’t see a point in compromising on quality. I have been working on the book for some time and I still know that it is not quite right and there are some changes to be made. I don’t believe in doing anything half-heartedly. If I don’t produce work of a good standard, no one will want to buy any of my other books, so I will endeavour to make it the best it can be.


      1. I have been to both sites several times my friend, it is a recent thing my unemployedness and it is truly grim to be in such a situation but I will persevere, especially with your fine sites’ help.


  4. I like the blurb as it wants you to open the book and read about these topics. Well done Sandra, you are working really hard on this book. You are fantastic. It will be a great help to many! Glad you are back to work, it means you are better after the longer illness. Good to know, Take good care of yourself. Much love Ute


    1. Fantastic – Oh that made me so happy, thanks Ute for your kind words they mean so much. I am thrilled that the blurb makes you want to open the book because it means that it is doing the job it is supposed to. Apologies for not commenting much lately, I am working a lot on my book at the moment and trying not to get ill again. I am much better than I was, but still taking 2 or 3 tablets a day. Teaching again from tomorrow. Two of my piggies are off to the vets again tomorrow afternoon, as I think they may have mites and Cinnamon has to have a lump check.
