Amazon best-selling book, ‘Seen Too’, has raised over £500 in book royalties so far for Wrexham mental health and wellbeing charity Advance Brighter Futures.

The book was officially released on World Mental Health Day (10th October 2022) and topped no less than EIGHT categories in the Amazon charts. A book launch was held to celebrate at the Celtic Arms, Northop Country Park Golf Club and in attendance, along with the authors and their friends and family, were representatives Advance Brighter Futures, who will receive all the profits from the book sales.

In ‘Seen Too’, 15 inspiring women authors come together to tell their stories, giving hope and inspiration to others. Katherine Massey, 47, from Connah’s Quay, coordinated the project, following on from her successful release of her first book in the series ‘Seen: Female Entrepreneurs Share Their Story of How They Stepped into their Passion, Purpose and Power’.

Katherine, who has also written her own best-selling autobiography ‘Living with Dolls’, said: “I never set out for the visibility, but the impact and messages I received about my best-selling autobiography made me realise the power of sharing stories. I wanted to give other women a platform, and so many came forward to be included in my second book, ‘Seen: Female Entrepreneurs Share Their Story of How They Stepped into their Passion, Purpose and Power’. One year on, I was blown away by how many more women were prepared to sit in the light and be featured in ‘Seen Too’.”

Advance Brighter Futures’ Business Development Officer, Zoe Whitehead said: “Our vision is to ensure that no individual experiencing mental health problems feels like they are on their own. We remain a small local charity based in Wrexham; therefore, any donation means a lot to us. We are incredibly honoured to have been selected as the chosen charity for the royalties of ‘Seen Too’, and the money raised will go a long way to helping the people we support.”

Following on from the success of the book launch, one of the 15 authors, Teana Lynne, co-hosted a charity dinner where a further £820 was raised for Advance Brighter Futures.

Zoe, who attended the book launch and charity dinner, said: “Not only will the money raised go an incredibly long way to helping us support people with their mental health, but the exposure the charity has received by being featured in the book is priceless. It’s important to us that people know who we are and what we do. It means that more people will find out about the support we offer for those struggling with their mental health, and that means the world to us.”
