#14 "The Day I Didn't Kill Myself." New author DebS gets Caryl Westmore's input on her Memoir
Meet DebS, author of the upcoming Memoir "The Day I didn't Kill Myself."
After finishing writing her book she wondered - what next?
A member of the Writing the Book Inside You Facebook Group, Debs met with Caryl to get some input on her next best steps.
Listen to how she got clarity on her book title, sub-title and the opening paragraphs which Caryl advised should "hook the reader" from the get-go.
Debs says how she originally titled her book "How Words Can Change your Life" or "How words Can Heal your Life". The book she says is "essentially my memoir about how I became depressed following a divorce, and then having suicidal thoughts. And obviously, I didn't follow up on that otherwise, I wouldn't be here today."
It was initially all about the words, the words that jumped into her head, then it was about words that people had said to her.
"I thought the title seemed to make sense, celebrating that there is such a thing as life after divorce, there is such a thing as life after depression, there is such a thing as life after having suicidal thoughts," she says.
One day she heard the poem "The Morning after I Killed myself". It was written from the point of view of somebody wishing that they hadn't, but it was too late.
In this interview, she shares the story of how this led to her final title "The Day I didn't kill myself."
"But I didn't have a very good subtitle," she says.
That's where Caryl Westmore gave her key ideas which made her subtitle enticing for readers.
You will also hear how the opening of the book got a new hook.
Realizing she was near-suicidal 20 years ago sent Debs on a healing journey which she shares in this interview. It is also woven into the book (with many of the therapies that helped her including Emotional Freedom Techniques). She hopes that she can help others who are on the brink of despair and depression to realize there IS life after divorce and deep depression.
Debs also shares how much of her adult depression and feelings of being unloved originated in her early childhood when her Mum, suffering from post-natal depression and mental health issues left home with her brother - leaving her feeling unlovable and abandoned.
A key part of her healing journey was to rescue and re-parent her Younger Self and to talk over the past with her mother.
Writing is a cathartic journey says Debs who recommends it to anyone who is thinking of writing a transformational memoir.

Episode 11 - True Expat, Nick Westmore: Never too late to Write the Book Inside You
Today’s guest Nick Westmore proves age is no barrier when it comes to writing the book inside you. Nick Westmore is my husband and the author of three books which I happily helped him publish on Amazon in my role as the “Tapping Book Coach.” As someone who published his first book after he retired in his 70s, Nick proves that if he can do it, anyone can! He tells us how he’s always had a whimsical way of seeing the world and finding humour wherever he goes. He gives us some background into his career and travels as an engineer and how this led him to write the book True Expat: Tales of an Expatriate in the Oil and Gas Industry. Apart from sharing a number of light-hearted anecdotes from the book, he also sheds light on another book he wrote, Village Boy at Heart, and the book he is currently writing about life in South Africa during the pandemic. Hear about Nick’s writing process, the job of independent self-publishing and the importance of getting help with the editing, proofreading and design of your book, as well as other aspects. Like he did from Caryl. Tune in today for some inspiration from Nick as to why you too should write the book inside you.
