Former Slave Laker returning for book signing

Niki Lee has family in Slave Lake and lived in Slave Lake off and on since she was a teenager. Now she lives in Camrose, but will be back to do a book signing for her debut nonfiction book – Nobody Cares.

Lee says the genre of the book is hard to pin down, but it is “a motivational, self-help, kick in the butt, make some changes, that kind of thing.”

“I really just want to help people,” she adds. “I’ve gone through a lot of trauma.”

In the last while, Lee has worked hard on identifying and working through this trauma. Part of this has been a 14-week course focused on choices and anger management.

“I was pretty divinely guided to write it,” says Lee. “I started writing in August. I wrote the whole thing in one day.”
Lee then edited the book and sent it off to the publisher in October.

One of the signs that Lee felt guided her to write the book was finding a bookmark with a publishing company in an astrology book. She contacted the publisher, who connected her with Balboa Press.

According to the Balboa Press’s website, “Balboa Press is a self-publishing company specializing in self-help titles that inspire and enlighten readers.”

The book signing will be at Flowers Etc. in Slave Lake on February 25th from noon to 6 p.m. The deadline to guarantee a book has passed, but Lee plans to have some extra copies on hand for people to buy.
