Strong opinions wanted
By Liam O'Dell • Issue #19 • View online
Hello interested individual,
It’s been a while. You may be wondering what this email is and how it managed to invade your email on a Monday morning, but you previously signed up to receive emails about the work being done on my first ever non-fiction book. 
Failing that, you subscribed to the previous All-Inclusive Newsletter, which is now been retired due to a combination of Revue only allowing one newsletter at a time and me running out of time to commit to a hobby which I was offering little reward.

Now I have a book to write and, eventually, sell. But more specifically, I am now in the process of reaching out to potential interviewees to chat about the themes of my book. I already have a good list of folks, but I’m wondering if you have a few other experts who I should definitely speak to.

So excited to announce I’m now part of the @JKPBooks family and writing my non-fiction debut.

Investigative, provocative and (hopefully) eye-opening, my book will ask how autism researchers lost the trust of our community, and how they can win it back.
The book will be touching upon:
  • Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
  • Eugenics
  • Meaningful engagement and consultation with autistic people
  • Andrew Wakefield and the MMR scare
  • Under-representation of autistic people who are ethnically diverse, LGBTQ+ (particularly trans/non-binary folk) and women in research - both as participants and researchers
  • Charities and their relationship with autism research
  • Ethical regulators of autism research and their role as watchdogs
  • The medical and social models of disability
  • Autistic autism researchers
  • Autistic people who have participated in autism research, particularly those which proclaim to look for the genetics or ‘origins’ of one’s autism
  • Spectrum 10K
  • The media’s role in reporting on research
If you have some strong opinions or insight on this, or know someone who might, then I’d love to hear from you. You should be able to respond to this email directly to get in touch, or you can email me at
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, and I hope to share another update on book progress in due course - accountability and all that.
Until next time,
Did you enjoy this issue?

I'm writing my first book, and I want you to follow my journey, but also motivate me to put words on a page.

Formerly 'The All-Inclusive Newsletter', this newsletter will share updates as I begin to compile my debut, but will also be a way for me to reach out with ways you can be involved, and support the work I'm doing.

Sign up to The Book Accountability Project for updates on my writing progress when I have them.
Hi, I'm Liam. I'm a Deaf and disabled journalist and campaigner who is now writing my first non-fiction book, and needs people to hold me accountable.
