To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) founderJamie Tworkowski has released an expanded edition of his debut book "IF YOU FEEL TOO MUCH" today, September 6th, 2016. It's no coincidence that the IF YOU FEEL TOO MUCH Expanded Edition is arriving during National Suicide Prevention Week, and just a few days before World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th). The New York Times called "IF YOU FEEL TOO MUCH" 'a testament to suicide prevention.' This new edition, published byTarcherPerigee, an imprint of Penguin Random House, includes a new author's note, as well as five new pieces Tworkowski wrote between 2015 and 2016. He originally released "IF YOU FEEL TOO MUCH," which debuted at #6 on the New York Times Best Seller List, on May 26th, 2015.
Tworkowski tells us, "This new material was written during a painful season, maybe the hardest of my life. The book's subtitle is 'Thoughts on Things Found and Lost and Hoped For' and the new writing really speaks to all of that. It's about finding something and losing it and not knowing how to let go. i'm nervous about sharing some things that are deeply personal, but the hope is that if someone else is hurting, this new edition might help them know they're not alone."
After an initial book tour that visited 20 cities across the U.S. & Canada, Jamie is hitting the road for more events in support of the new expanded edition. For a list of upcoming tour dates, please see below or visit: www.twloha.com/events.
