Crazy Hot Book Trailer
RRBC Self Help Genre

Imagine experiencing emotions that have you questioning your sanity. Your body gets overheated at the least bit of excitement and you scramble to find a fan or some air; or you find yourself in the throes of a panic attack and can’t understand how to shut it off; so you are filled with anxiety wondering when the next one is coming. What if every time you take a drug you experience side-affects that you are warned about on the label?
The title was conceived in my mind after I thought over all the situations I had found myself in, getting out of them, and the effect all of this had on my overall physical and mental well-being.

Judge’s Commentary*

I liked the way author Harris-Slaughter comes swiftly to the reason that brought her to write this book: to show how her health deteriorated as a young adult and onwards and what she did about it.
While Chapter 1 begins with sensible observations that can be found in any number of self-help healing books, several paragraphs in, the author explains her own early stress factors, starting with an unhealthy first marriage. This is a great hook. I cannot think of a more effective way of underlining how trauma can lead to illness. She demonstrates why every person is responsible for his or her own well-being. The nearest and dearest to us will not understand: the author’s mother did not understand. I like her observation about doctors at the end of the second chapter, for I have come to the same conclusion. I have to admit I loved this book precisely because it resonates so much with my life.

The author has charm to her approach. The reader may feel as if she is in the room, chatting, and full of interesting anecdotes.

Harris-Slaughter writes with a fresh and genuine voice. This is the kind of book that will be welcomed as a gift by anyone who has suffered with confusing symptoms over the years for which doctors have offered little help…
