Bay Area Psychotherapist and Survivor of a Schizophrenia Diagnosis Launches Website to Sell Award-Winning Memoir and Training Services!
In launching online store, author Tim Dreby comes out of the closet to promote his writing platform. Selling books and services independently marks a new beginning for the middle-age debut writer who works to redefine the manner in which the public understands psychosis.
OAKLAND, Calif. (PRWEB) July 16, 2018
July 7, 2018, in the volatile market of indie books and treating psychosis, is there any such thing as a guidebook? Ever since canceling a book contract to maintain the integrity of his work, author Tim Dreby has struggled with a profound sense of invisibility.
Like many independent authors in this era, Tim took to marketing with little guidance, time or money when his memoir Fighting for Freedom in America was released. Busy finishing up a grant program that was constructed off his own theoretical training platform, he did not immediately rise in Amazon’s ranks.
In retrospect, Tim was still was ambivalent about having his private world public. Waiting for the awards and five star reviews to come back, Tim approached the issue of being an author in the iconoclastic tradition of authors/artists he most admires, J.D. Salinger and Charles Bukowski, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waites, and KRS-One, without doing research or conforming to social dictates.
He told an NPR journalist in a preliminary interview that he’d often heard things in local radio broadcasts about mental health that are offensive. Correspondence was cut off. Right before an interview with Malik Shakur of The Knowledge Show he signed into the page and viewed the image of a packaged condom that was ripped open. After a most interesting interaction, he was not invited back. On his interview with Will Hall on Madness Radio one listener commented, “For me this interview was one of the more ‘off beat’ ones I’ve heard thus far. Off beat in the sense of fascinating, informative, on the slightly bizarre side . . ., vulnerable, respectful, inclusive and ultimately oh so human.”
Tim’s former pen name still rests on his memoir, Clyde Dee. Clyde is Tim’s middle name and Dee is the first letter of his last name and the last name of his second favorite rapper all time.
Having found that his family members support him or take offense regardless of the use of a pseudonym Tim is now fully out on his website. Building a platform to promote his writing and sell his training and memoir has been a slow process and involved learning some new skills.Still, his marketing strategy has been his own spirit more than guidebooks.
The site is full of mental health essays, poetry, personal updates along with rough drafts and summations of his therapy platform he hopes to advance.
More than just a resource for suffers, family members and providers to use to excel, Tim hopes his site and work will help re-define the public’s view of what psychosis really is.

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could
point me in the direction of a good platform.
I use wordpress.org. Had to pay a designer to custom build the site.
I am no longer certain the place you are getting your info, but
great topic. I needs to spend a while finding out more or understanding more.
Thank you for magnificent information I used to be
looking for this info for my mission.
Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against
hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
hard on. Any tips?
I paid my host for security, I hope that’s enough!
