History reloaded – Best of Lily Amis Blog 2015


In 2015 during the refugee crises in Europe I was very active on Twitter and published a lot about my own experience as a war refugee back in the 80es and my view about the refugee's misery of today, three decades later. Then in February 2017, I published all my posts from 2015 until 2016 in one book as "History reloaded, Shit happens...", which you can get in print and read as an ebook on Amazon!

Book description:

“HISTORY RELOADED” is a collection of post-series, by multi-genre author & blogger, Lily Amis. Lily started to blog in 2015 when the refugee crisis hit Europe. She was about to promote her memoir, “Destination: Freedom”, which is about her own experience as a child, war-refugee in the eighties. The collection of posts includes her thoughts and interviews during the refugee crisis, with British newspapers and female magazines such as The Mirror, Female First, and Frost Magazine. Lily’s views on all the mess that is ruling our selfish and superficial society of today are personal and honest. War history, discrimination, racism, the Calais jungle, The Paris attacks, the crises in Syria, Afghanistan, and Aleppo are all covered. The shock with Brexit, the American Presidential Election of 2016, and finally the new United States President are just a few of the topics that made shocking history!

Birdy & Fishy is out now!


“Birdy & Fishy” is an illustrated book, inspired by the memoir "Destination: Freedom”. It is a lovely and deep story, about the great power of hope. It is about, believing in miracles and the strength of friendship and loyalty

There are situations that seem desperate. Existences that go on in the greyness of a suffocating and repetitive everyday life. Every day the same scenario, the same boredom, the coldness of a house in which there is no love. The imagination that inhabits this curious and intelligent little fish’s head creates dreams of the outside world and eventual escape from the confining life in a fishbowl, trying to drown out the sameness of life. Everything seems condemned to an endless monotony... until the unthinkable happens. An incredible encounter that shakes the desperate little fish’s life and put wings to his dreams. A story full of fantasy that teaches us not to surrender to despair, even when we do not see a way out. A surprise ending that leaves us with a smile.

The symbolic meaning behind “Birdy & Fishy”

This deeply meaningful short, age- and timeless story inspired by the two memoirs Destination: Freedom and Definition of Freedom is a reflection of Lily’s Life in a foreign country.

Fishy’s desperate desire for freedom, a circle of loving friends and a caring family, the feeling of belonging somewhere and of being accepted and integrated is what many refugees/immigrants feel and struggle with. Some struggle, just for a while, but others for their entire lives. But, as they say, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and this story, with a happy ending, is a good lesson, to never give up on hope, faith, dreams, goals, wishes, and desires, despite the challenging obstacles, of destiny and our selfish, elbow-society!

Meanwhile, this lovely story is also available in German, Italian, and Spanish. You find all the links for the illustrated book in print and the ebook on my website www.LilyAmis.com

Read My Mind Spring issue 2017 is out now!

Read My Mind, What the magazine is about!

As much as we authors and bloggers love to talk about politics and other worldwide issues, we at “nasSima-design”, the publisher of “Read My Mind”, try not to publish anything about negative topics in our magazine. Unfortunately, politics and dirty money are ruling the world, and our lives are overshadowed by negativity, terror, and horrible news. We can’t change the world, but at least we can change your mind, for a while.

We are here to make you feel good about life and about our beautiful planet Earth. There is so much beauty in the world that we can see and be grateful for. So, be assured, our team will either entertain or educate you. We will either inspire or encourage you, with talented people in literature, entertainment, and true-life stories.

We offer several writing contests and give you the chance to be an active, creative, and productive reader of our magazine, with a prize of global marketing, highlighting you and your work!

The fact that we have bloggers from America, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and Europe including artists from several European countries is our sign of unity. None of us have ever met in person. At least not yet! But, we are in contact almost every day and despite the distance, different time zones and continents, age, mother language, level of education, lifestyle, and life stories, we the makers of this magazine and our guests symbolize love, friendship, tolerance, respect, support, and togetherness. The world has become smaller thanks to our passion for writing and living in a decade with all the possibilities of modern technology.

To be honest, it all happened so quickly and unexpectedly. I must admit I was sick and tired of Social Media activities and blogging. I had decided to cut myself off from the Internet completely and was about to focus solely on my book scripts in 2017 when an event on Facebook caught my attention. An American Author organized a Facebook Event, with the message “Our Books Are Not Free”. I just couldn’t resist being part of it and luckily got a free spot on the last day of the event, which took place between 11th and 15th February 2017, with over a hundred authors from all kinds of genres, from all over the world.

I was fascinated by the idea that we all were part of something so historical that I set up a Facebook group, “Authors Support Authors”. In a short matter of time, I learned so much, from so many different authors. One of the ladies, another American author, and publisher inspired me to publish my own magazine. And here we are… the rest, as they say, is history.
