Colorado Springs, COLORADO– June 4, 2015
Alive Literary is thrilled to announce a new New York Times (NYT) Bestseller. If You Feel Too Much, Jamie Tworkowski’s debut book, hits the #6 spot on the forthcoming NYT Advice/How-to/Miscellaneous Bestseller list (publishing June 14, 2015) following its first week in print. If You Feel Too Much is a celebration of hope, wonder, and what it means to be human. From personal stories of struggling on days most people celebrate to offering words of strength and encouragement in moments of loss, the essays in this book invite readers to believe that it’s okay to admit to pain and it’s okay to ask for help.
In a May 26th interview in the Christian Review, Tworkowski said of the book, “Yeah, I kind of have realized this book is very much me handing someone my heart. It’s 200 pages of my heart.”
Tworkowski wrote a story in 2006 called “To Write Love on Her Arms” about helping a friend through her struggle with drug addiction, depression, and self-injury. That story went viral and prompted the founding of To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), Tworkowski’s non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury and suicide.
TWLOHA is an internationally-recognized leader in suicide prevention and a source of hope, encouragement, and resources for people. Tworkowski frequently speaks at universities, concerts and conferences. Earlier this year, To Write Love on Her Arms was made into a Sony Pictures film now available on DVD & Digital HD worldwide.
If You Feel Too Much is an important book from one of this generation’s most important voices.
