Kiama-based writer Amy Molloy will release her second book Peace, Instead of This chapter by chapter on Instagram from January 14.
“I wanted to share my experiences while I’m still experiencing them, which wouldn’t be possible with the typical printing process – it might be a year before my book was on shelves,” she said.
“I also wanted to chose a medium that was accessible to people like me – time poor, busy, women (and men!) who crave emotional support.”
At a future date, the chapters will also be posted on her website, with all content free to access. There will also be an audio version released as a podcast.
Molly’s previous best-selling effort The World Is A Nice Place was about coping mechanisms for overcoming the worst experiences of your life whilst still hoping for the best.
A self-confessed sensitive child, Amy Molloy has already gone through a lot.
She was born into a family with a history of mental illness, developed an eating disorder as a teenager, watched her father learn to walk again after he was paralysed from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and, at the age of 23, became a widow when her partner died of cancer three weeks after their wedding day.
