BiPoLaR Friend Series- Perspectives on Suicide, Relationships, Spirituality & Well Being


This Bipolar Series is a Family Event.
And Far More…

As you may know, Bipolar is also known as Manic Depression. If you have read my estrangement– or other books, you may be aware Bipolar DNA permeates my family of origin deeply. Our Father and maternal Grandmother were both Bipolar Type I. Therefore, their genetics granted all 6 of us siblings some version of this disorder. Consequently, our family legacy has been riddled with challenging, emotional roller coaster moments.

This disability has severely affected and infiltrated every aspect of our family life, and beyond. Consequently my Bipolar Friend series was born from true events. And, arrived in these books. Now help is offered to others. Gain understanding while learning to cope with the many faces of Bipolar. Push past perceptions. Educate yourself through awareness. Then turn tragedy in triumph. These guides will show you how.

Our Bipolar inheritance caused two of my siblings, an older and younger brother, to commit suicide. Even 30 years apart both events left devastating imprints upon our lives.  Fighting mental demons became too great of a challenge for my brothers to conquer in this physical life. And so our story is told in Bipolar Friend on SUICIDE. Our journey speaks to both sides. Those that do it. And those who are left behind. If you, your family members, or relations are at- or have crossed this bridge this guide is for YOU. This memoir is uniquely written. It addresses those who are contemplating suicide. And also supports grieving families, friends and relations left in the aftermath of this finality.

Bipolar Friend on Relationships is just that. The skewed perceptions that bipolar creates is often difficult to navigate. Get straight talk guidance on how to communicate with a person enveloped in moodswings. As well, this outspoken book shares common concerns that develop from dating situations. Personal experience on tough topics is candidly shared. Subjects include: How to approach the B subject when dating. When and how to introduct your endowment to a date. Discussions are also offered as to whether you would consider dating a person who has bipolar. In addition, strategies are given for navigating the stress of a divorce, that can trigger bipolar episodes. Advice and suggestions are offered for well being and healthy interpersonal relationships all around.

Bipolar Friend on Bipolar Brilliance is an uncommon book that celebrates the positive aspects of Bipolar. The creative energy that flows forth from the fringes of Bipolar has gifted the world amazing innovations. The Bipolar brain is indeed brilliant! Interesting topics include: Spirituality as connected to the divine, intuition, awakenings, and enlightenment. Bipolar’s altered states is openly discussed, questioned and explored. Lots of examples are given for broadening one’s perspective.

Mental Health Matters offers care taking tips and ideas. Guidance provides useful routines to maintain mental health. Stabilizing oneself while under the influence of moodswings, plus healing strategies are provided. This book is targeted to caregivers and family who aid others with mental challenges. Communication, assessment, monitoring and self preservation for well being are topics highlighted. This is a practical resource with many sensible suggestions.

Each book cover is linked so you can PREVIEW the books on their sales page. FYI! The best bargain is buying all 4 in the 4-Book Set $avings. And of course, All books can be purchased right here on this website!

Growing Niche Market = MORE Teacher CiViCs Lesson Plans!


Who Knew ETHICS Would be
MY Newest Niche Market!?

You never know what pops to the top as a strong seller. One of my short teacher lessons popped up to the #1 page rank in the ethics category at the site. And, yes! Definitely. I took notice. It takes a lot of sales at $3.+ to rise to a top seller in any category genre. So, decidedly it was time to add a few more CiViCS and ETHiCS lessons to my sales line up. (View Civics lessons HERE.)

Research the Potential for Your Market

The proper way to see if there is a market for a book- or lesson plan- on any subject – is BY RESEARCHING IT. I had always just let my ideas and passion for a subject steer the path for a new ebook. But no more. Especially when I see trends of a solo product selling strong month after month. This is one way to see what niche may be unfulfilled for lack of products in that category.

Write Your Passion? Or Aim for Sales

Doing a bit of searching inside ebook reseller sites will give you a good clue for sales rankings for particular ebook topics and genres. And, surprisingly it does not take that much time to do. Early on in this self publishing game I would scope out and see unfulfilled niches. I could have sold out and help fill those niches. But, that is not my style. I’m inspired to write what makes me tick. Then see what comes of it. Not the best approach if your aim is to make money. But it can pay off if you pay attention to your sales trends.

Target Your Market

With over 130 products in the ebook marketplace I am more discerning. Of where, and how, I want to spend my time. Do I go ahead and write a lesson plan blindly….just because I LOVE creating it? OR. Do I do my homework to see what the competition currently is? The evidence became clear.

Routinely Review Sale Stats!

Over the past 6 months I did a complete sales analysis. And, it was quite revealing. Now reviewing book sales is part of my routine tasks. Why? Because trends and logic makes it clear. That niche markets pay off. Sure, creating ebooks is fun. But there comes a point you need to buckle into the business side of the equation. Especially if you plan on doing this for the long haul. Even–and MOSTLY if this is your PASSION!

Better Late Than Never -FIRST EVER! Newsletter!

Greetings and Welcome to the Final Chapter of 2017!

At Last! Here are some pivotal points over the past year for my Pet Project. As a solo operator, creator, writer et all > I am finally glad to share progress in one of my rare newsletters! (Some things just have to take a second seat! But I will attempt to put out semi annual- if not quarterly updates to you in the future!)

  • In January of this year -2017, sadly I lost my beloved Toby dog who inspired my Pet Project mission. He left a big pawprint upon my life and he is dearly missed. To learn more about Toby’s significant contributions click HERE.
  • This year in the book building business brought on lots of activity. In-between adding new books, a much closer scrutiny of product sales occurred. This analysis was quite revealing! Consequently, many covers got updated to accurately reflect their content. As well, some content was edited. A writer-publisher’s work is never done!
  • In November I added another education vendor. Check out my new E-store at Teachers Notebook.
  • Pinterest got a lot more of my attention as well. From organizing and updating, to creating new boards. Check out MY BOARDS!  And feel free to send me a message to join one or two!
  • This month marks the SECOND ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY of Patty Ann’s Pet Project! I can’t even believe it myself! Where does time go? What was once an inkling of a dream, is now a full blown passion project. My book sales have supported some wonderful animal sanctuaries and rescue groups over the last two years. Check out my list of ongoing Donation Recipients.

I hope this season brings a rest filled closure to your 2017 as we prepare to embark on yet another new year!

My Best to Each One of YOU for 2018!

Patty Ann

Reflective Lessons – From Cover Duds to Dandy Sellers!

RE-Newed Cover & Title!

A case in point for the advice I gave out in the last book I rewrote – From Cover Duds to Dandy Sellers: Create SCREAMING eBook Covers that $ELL. (Pictured on left.)

Bipolar Friend on Suicide (Pictured on the right) > This cover was very similar to the original cover and the exact title for this book when created. When I added and edited to the content I also thought a new cover was warranted. The new cover did not sell. Well, guess what? I missed a beat! And, didn’t take my own advice!

I had not reviewed past sales figures on this particular book. When I did, 3! years later, I found the original cover and title SOLD! A LOT! OMG! What was I thinking? It pay$ to be attentive to sales figures on schedule! And, with this knowledge I invented a Bipolar Friend four book series!

Anyway. Lesson learned. With GREAT content and an updated new-old cover; this one should go on a rocket ride!

Yup~ It IS TRUE! Sells Books Now!

Ready Get Set & GO > Now Selling eBooks Right Here!


Months of revamping and the result? ALL eBooks can now be sold directly to YOU!

My decision to sell on this site came about for several reasons.

FIRST, why pay commissions to other sites when I do my own advertising?

  • Those commissions will now go towards MORE funding of Patty Ann’s Pet Project Donations.
  • Also, many eBooks are able to be discounted at a savings to you. And, ALL eBook Sets are bundled for $AVING$!

SECOND, this site is no longer at the mercy of other selling site algorithms. Algorithms dictate where, who, how many times my books are seen.  The outcome has a huge influence on sales.

LAST, I wanted to give readers the option of not having to remember their account logins.

NOTE! ALL  of eBooks are in PDF format. PDF allows for a well designed, customized eBook.
EPUB is also included for many eBooks. EPUB accommodates eBook reading, but is not highly formatted.
Most all eBooks (PDF only) will continue to be sold at my TeachersPayTeachers Store.
Offsite eBook stores sell EPUB or Mobi formats, as shown on the HOME page.

If you have questions or comments, or any issue with downloads, please EMAIL ME! Thank YOU & ENJOY!
