Happy New Year news from Aimee Liu

December 30, 2007

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

I hope your holidays have been warm and relaxing, with plenty of good books to keep you company.

As we head into 2008, I wanted to send you a couple of updates. First, my book GAINING is now available in paperback, with an all-new reading group guide. Ask for it at your favorite bookstore, or order at Amazon.com.

Second, a reminder that the fabulous anthology, FOR KEEPS:Women Tell the Truth About their Bodies, Growing Older, and Acceptance, is also available. Edited by Victoria Zackheim, this gem of a collection includes powerful essays by Abby Frucht, Ellen Sussman, Elizabeth Rosner, Caroline Leavitt, Susan Ito, and many others, including me! Please do check it out.

Also, I recently became a founding author of a great new website for readers and writers: redroom.com, the "online home of the world's greatest writers." On redroom.com, you can view my author bio, published works, blog, book reviews, videos, and podcasts, as well as find out more about good causes I support. In fact, once the site has paid advertising, just viewing my page will send a portion of the proceeds to these causes.

Today, I'm asking you to go to the site, redroom.com, and become a member (it's free). Click "Join Now" on the homepage or "Join" in the upper right corner of the page. Then select your unique Red Room username. They encourage you to use your real first and last name; I've done so. Or, if you don't have time to join now, sign up for the Red Room email list. You can do this quickly at www.redroom.com/newsletter.

Once you've joined, please comment on my blog and media content, helping build a community around my work. If you have time, you can even write reader reviews of my books. Of course you can do this for other writers on the site as well, adding to the literary conversation at large. If you have any questions, contact the member services manager at support@redroom.com.

They're happy to help you as they helped me build my author page. You can be in on the ground floor of building this community. Feel free to forward this invitation to your friends, family, and colleagues, too. And if you are an author, once you've joined redroom.com (again, it's free), you can apply to create an author page like mine.

Thanks so much for your support.
Wishing you health, peace, and passion in 2008!

Work on Eating Disorders
While there are numerous memoirs available chronicling individual women’s struggles with anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders, this is the first book to bring together many people’s stories to create a complete and candid picture of the recovery process. Aimee Liu has skillfully brought together firsthand accounts of recovery to create a realistic roadmap for the journey. This book also includes informational sidebars, written by professionals in the field, on topics including treatment options, choosing the right therapist, the pros and cons of medication, how parents and spouses can help, and much more.
How do anorexia and bulimia impact life AFTER recovery? GAINING is one of the first books about eating disorders to connect the latest scientific insights to the personal truth of life before, during, and especially after anorexia and bulimia.
America's first memoir of anorexia, and one of the earliest books about eating disorders, originally published in 1979
