Member News – Crowdfunding Concussion Is Brain Injury

Dear Tri Delta Sisters,

I’m really excited to announce that I’m crowdfunding an update to my 2012 book Concussion Is Brain Injury! I want to make it better for readers. I want to enrich and enhance it with ground-breaking new sections that challenge the status quo, sections on the raw reality of relationships, the truth about our emotions, my thoughts on CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), faith after injury, rehabilitating reading in the knowledge economy, and a promising new treatment that I kickstarted.

To that end, I need your help to fund the services I need to bring this book to readers. The funds raised through PubLaunch – a crowdfunding site designed specifically for authors and readers – will go towards professional editing, a new exciting cover design, better packaging, and a robust marketing campaign. In return for your generous support, I have set up some great rewards for you, including prints of my original photography, special edition hardcover copies, and copies of my previous books.

The target of $11,000 will cover all expenses. Won’t you join me in making this second edition happen? Please click the link to check out the campaign: http://www.publaunch.com/campaigns/concussion-brain-injury

If you have any questions about my book or PubLaunch, please ask in the comments section. I greatly appreciate your support, and I look forward to continuing to help, educate, and inspire my readers. Thank you!

“Even though I worked with children who had brain injuries I found myself failing to understand some of Shireen’s frustrations and struggles and that is why I jumped at the chance to read her book. The book is a must read for ANY PROFESSIONAL who works [with] adults or children with brain injuries. It gives you the prospective [sic] of how frustrating our system can be and the lack of hope most professionals give to people with brain injuries.” Nancy Howson on Facebook
