A few months ago, I mentioned that I was reading and providing feedback to an author for the novel she was writing. I am happy to announce that this novel "Hot Mess" by Anne Conley has been published!
I am so happy and honored to have had the pleasure to read the novel and provide feedback to Anne during her writing process. The story features a HIV+ main character, Rachel, and allows you to share in her journey as she steps back into the dating scene for the first time since her diagnosis.
I should have posted this quite a while back, please check out the book!
I am 27. White. A Female. And a former Peace Corps Volunteer. I am HIV Positive. This is my story of how a few months, a few people, and a few events in Zambia changed me and my life forever. This is the story of how I contracted HIV and brought my Peace Corps Journey to a crashing halt... and how I am working now to pick up and put back together the pieces of my life as a newly diagnosed person living with HIV. This was not the journey I had originally planned... my path has traumatically and dramatically changed... but it is the one I am on now. There is no going back. There is only forward. I welcome you to follow along with me as I attempt to explore this new life ahead of me, whether you are someone from the Peace Corps community, or someone living with HIV. I welcome your comments, questions, suggestions, and opinions. Let us go forward together.
