In honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, the author of a novel about schizophrenia has reduced the price of her e-book during the month of May.

Playing the Genetic Lottery, a novel by Terri Morgan, will be available on Amazon.com for $.99 for the entire month. The novel is a fictional memoir of a strong and resilient wife and mother who grew up with two parents who were living with schizophrenia. This touching, poignant and heartwarming novel dispels many of the misconceptions surrounding schizophrenia. The novel also touches on depression and bipolar disorder, as well as treatments for mental illness.

"Novel can help enlighten and educate people while entertaining them. One of my goals in writing Playing the Genetic Lottery-aside from creating a good read-was to educate people about schizophrenia and the impact it has on families," Morgan said. "My hopes are by raising awareness about mental illness I can raise compassion for people who are living with schizophrenia, and help reduce the stigmas associated with mental illness."

May has been observed as National Health Awareness Month in America since 1949. Mental health issues will affect one out of every four Americans in their lifetimes. Unfortunately, due to the stigma associated with mental illness, many people are too ashamed or embarrassed to seek help for themselves or their loved ones.

"Although Playing the Genetic Lottery is a novel, I worked hard to weave accurate information about the disease into the book," Morgan said. "I wanted to raise compassion, but not at the expense of individuals living with schizophrenia. So I was both relieved and honored when Ashley Smith, the founder of Embracing My Mind, wrote a wonderful review about my book. You can read her review at

Playing the Genetic Lottery will be available for 99 cents at http://www.amazon.com/Playing-the-Genetic-Lottery-ebook/dp/B0067NOY6U/ref=dp_kinw_strp_1 from May 1 to May 31, 2013.
