Have to get my indie memoir “The Death of Me” reviewed. Any interest?

“The Death of Me” is a memoir on childhood trauma involving bullying, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, LGBT issues, and alcoholism. It also chronicles the three years from age fifteen to eighteen I spent in psychiatric hospitals for my eating disorder. This book targets a mature audience only. Definitely has some erotic scenes involving men and women (not at the same time) and some violent revenge fantasies, though nothing acted on. The violence was turned inward on myself. I know its an intense book for sure and not for everyone.

It’s being released on ibooks October 24, 2014. It would be great to have it reviewed by then but its ok if its after that as I know its so short notice. Its a short book, 100 pages. I can send it PDF format or as a word document.

You can learn more about on my blog I have here or on my author website: shawnnaburtthedeathofmeinfoupdates.com.


To My Doctors poem

How I wish they could have understood me.

“To My Doctors”


Walls of cotton

The spiral downward

Worlds forgotten

And scream of night

Away from every inch of light

You beckon me with a call

Before I really start to fall.


Surely you must know by now

The what, the when, the why, the how

There’s many things in life to miss

 To never know a pain like this


The fire, the ice

Rabid violet and bluish nice

Surely you must understand

My bloody hot red demand

You’ve run the mile,

Or so I’m told

But what a pity,

To never know this thing you hold
