Write a book?

I'm thinking of writing a book. I've been thinking of it for awhile, and it will be a long process. I've been blogging since the day I found out I was pregnant with David. I want to write the book with all my entries, and with additional thoughts and writings in between, as well as pictures.
I am thinking of doing this on my own, selling it only on my blog for just what it costs me to get it printed and mail out. Kinko's will print and bind anything, that's probably how I would do it.
Now I need to know, how many people think they would want to read my story from the very first day?
Are there any other baby loss mama's out there who would like to be included in the book? Would you like to write chapters to be included in the book?
Give me any ideas you have!
I think a book of stories of other women who have gone through loss would be a great idea to give to new mother's in our circle, a way for them to see there are other people who understand.

I think that you should do whatever helps your healing process. I've got a draft on my computer that I began after Nick and Sophie but it wasnt the right time and I wasnt ready. Perhaps one day. I write for profit periodically and I write for self often, but since the kids, my writing has been sparse. I know that I need to heal more before I can put words on paper in that way.

But if you feel called, you should try. I find it to be very cathartic and helpful.
