We All Dare to Dream: Stories of Heartache and Hope from Your Fertility Journeys

Since telling the story of her own fertility journey in Dare to Dream, Izzy Judd has been contacted by hundreds of women wanting to share their own experiences. Izzy's greatest wish is to get people talking about the issues surrounding fertility and for them to find comfort in the knowledge that they are not alone.

As Izzy herself says: 'Going through any kind of fertility-related struggle or the loss of a baby can be such a lonely and isolating time and I know it can really help to know that there are other couples out there sharing the same experiences and emotions as you are ... it is for this reason that I decided to put together a collection of your stories into this free ebook so that as many people as possible can share them and hopefully find comfort and support in reading about the experiences of others who are on their fertility journeys.'

#dearcancer: Things to help you through

When journalist and broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, she made the decision to share her experiences in a series of video diaries in an effort to help demystify cancer treatment. Overwhelmed by the response, Victoria set up a Facebook page inviting people to share their own stories, talk openly about cancer and support one another.

The result is this collection of writing from cancer patients and their loved ones. Whether you have recently been diagnosed with cancer, or a friend or relative has, everyone who has contributed to this ebook has been through the same journey, and hopes you will take strength from these 'things to help you through'.

From practical tips on managing your treatment and your everyday life with cancer, to advice on understanding and dealing with the emotional rollercoaster that begins with diagnosis, this free resource is packed with hard-won wisdom and insight, at once useful and poignant.

This exclusive collection is published ahead of Victoria Derbyshire's book, Dear Cancer, Love Victoria: A Mum's Diary of Hope.

Memories A La Carte: Essays on a Life

A DEBUT ESSAY COLLECTION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN THERE - Having fought the good fight of alcohol dependency, depression, divorce, failed opportunities, and financial insecurity but often with a laugh and a song, Kaye Curren came out standing on her feet just in time to write this book for you.

In this collection of humorous and heartfelt personal essays, Ms. Curren relates what it's been like to be a woman living, growing, and surviving in America of the last half century and beyond. In selected stories, she tells of childhood shenanigans, first love, a quest to be in show business, a failed first marriage, and a bout with wild parties and drinking.

Life gets so much better (not) as she moves to New York and takes on husband #2, his two daughters, and two bambinas of her own. After spending a time in a famous mental hospital, and shedding the drinking life, the husband walks out.

With no money, no skills, and twelve years as a stay-at-home-mom, Curren returns to college and takes on the horrors of substitute teaching and temp office work. When she's banned from both, she gets a "good" job at University of Michigan until triple the workload convinces her to retire with enough savings to live for ten years.

She then tangles with a single-mom empty nest, TSA, and nasty NYC taxi drivers in visits to her grown offspring and new grandkids.

From birth to death, life can be a bitch, but even the lowliest of women can survive.
