My name is Eric Devine and I have had type one for 18 years. I am also a teacher and author. My novel may be of interest for all of you because the protagonist acquires Type 1. This Side of Normal is marketed as Young Adult, but I have received much praise from adult audiences who have read the work. Therefore, if you are interested and want to read some excerpts, please stop my blog: ericdevine(dot)wordpress(dot)com. I also have some diabetes-related articles there. If you become interested in purchasing my book, it is available at longtalepress(dot)com and on Amazon. I hope this doesn't come across as hijacking on a message board. My book comes from the heart, and as you'll see puts to words the life we all lead. Thanks for your time.
Eric

I looked at your novel and was impressed with your writing style. I hope your book does well. Did you try and get a major publishing company to publish your book?

Richard,
Thanks for the support. I did try the major publishers via a literary agent, to no avail. I parted with that agent, stumbled upon Long Tale Press--the small publisher that published This Side of Normal, and then acquired another agent for a different work. The process is daunting, but worthwhile. Not too dissimilar to our daily management. Thanks, again, for your interest.

Eric

Hi there,

you got me curious, so I ordered your book today. I'm pretty confident that I will love it. I guess I will be your first Belgian reader. LOL. Good luck and keep on writing! I'll mention your book on my blog tonight.

Hi Eric,

it's my pleasure. I'm really looking forward to reading your story. I have had the chance to read Richard's (he's a member here) story and that was really moving. I'm sure yours will be too.
