MindFood---check out this months edition. My story!

I had to do a bit of a double-take when I saw the latest edition of MiNDFOOD. I wasn't sure when it was coming out, so when my sister rang to say---'It's out,' I got quite a shock, especially when I saw the picture of 'me before.' Oh well, they say any publicity is good, so now I shall endure the giggles and take whatever leverage I can get from the article. You don't know what I am talking about? Well, about 6 months ago I sent an email to the medical institution that did the operation re my bariatric surgery. I offered to be 'used' as an example of how the procedure can be beneficial for some people. Well things went from there and before I knew it I was invited to submit an article and then it grew again so that MiNDFOOD became involved. There was a bit of 'backwards and forwards re what was going to be in article but eventually we settled on the right balance. That of course included a few pictures, some of me 'before the operation and some after shots.' The only high resolutions ones I could access were from my good friend Margaret, who had taken some pictures down at the beach near where I live. They were very 'revealing,' to say the least, but I thought--'what the hell. ' After all, the ones taken in the Rose Gardens in Parnell, showing the result of all the hard work--well they make up for it. MiNDFOOD also featured my book, Roskill, both in the magazine format and the online edition. I shall endure whatever comments come my way--all in the interest of getting Roskill 'out there.' What one does to achieve a goal! Thanks, MiNDFOOD. It was fun! Now go and buy this months edition and don't forget to check out my website to either buy the hard-copy of Roskill (You get a free download of the eBook version if you do that) or the EBook version. Now---what's me next trick or stunt. Maybe something involving aliens! www.authorneilcoleman.com
