Visit the Ebay website, my book is selling out to the point other countries are taking notice and selling my book for more money, than I get from my royalties on Amazon.com. Wow! Well time to meet M/R Johnson, the self-published author & social impact entrepreneur, who through allegiance to her self-published book has caused a transformation in the field of self-publishing.
Meet Memoirs Rhonda Johnson, born and raised in the Nation’s Capital Washington, DC, she is the author of the combined book and workbook Memoirs Of An Addict: Fact or Fiction, that address the stigma and shame of co-occurring disorders of addiction, mental health and suicidal ideation that society is too ashamed and reluctant to talk about. Motivated by her pain and triumphs living life with co-occurring disorders from suicide, depression and addictions, Author M/R Johnson and her self-published book offers insight from three dynamic perspectives with reference to her personal lived experiences, her education from the Washington, DC Department of Behavioral Health Training Institute for Co-Occurring Disorders Competence Course, along with the District of Columbia DBH–Office of Consumer and Family Affairs, Certified Peer Specialists Certification Program, as well as her professional work experience on an (ACT) Assertive Community Treatment Team for Catholic Charities, Anchor Behavioral Health of Washington, DC.
As a result of her courage and perseverance her self-published book Memoirs Of An Addict: Fact or Fiction has been exercised by:
The Washington, DC Department of Behavioral Health, OCFA Administration for continued education
The Solutions for Wellness Conference (DC) for a HIV/AIDS workshop
The Washington, DC Catholic Charities, Anchor Behavioral Health addiction training course as required reading
Barnes & Noble’s Catholic University and NBC 4 Healthy Book Festival 2016
Self-Publishing requires saying to yourself over and over again--All it takes is one person to read or hear about your work that can CHANGE your life forever.
M/R Johnson's motto is simple…Be careful who you judge, Do not neglect to show kindness to a stranger; for some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests; who may have come through trials and tribulations of addiction, depression and suicide who understands the cries, the pains and sorrows of others to become an advocate of change, in a position for such a time as this. My self-published book Memoirs Of An Addict: Fact or Fiction is worth more than money for the reason-- if I can help change just one person's life through education, encouragement and to empower them that there is hope--Never Give Up!
