I don’t know how much more emotion I can take, says Deborah James – as her book rockets to No1 on Amazon

DEBORAH James has been overwhelmed with emotion after her book rocketed to No1 on Amazon.

Just hours after the pre-release announcement was made, her legions of supporters had bumped the "labour of love" to the top of the charts.

She posted a story to Instagram with a screenshot of the Amazon Best Sellers.

Dame Debs said: "Not sure how much more emotional wow I can deal with tonight!

"Number 1 best seller in all books already. I want to tell each of you how wonderful you all are.

"Never forget that!"

Only Deborah could bring such joy in darkest of times, says pal as fund hits £6m

Mum Deborah, 40, who is on end-of-life care, revealed last night the publishing date has been brought forward because she’s got “a few things to share” before she dies.

The book, how to live when you could be dead, was originally due to be released next year – but will now be published on August 18.

Deborah shared her excitement on Instagram, but told fans she is “gutted” that she’ll likely miss seeing the book in shops.

Three pounds from each book will be donated to the Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK.

On the same day she revealed the heartbreaking news she was moving to palliative care at her mum and dads, she launched the Bowelbabe fund.

Deborah, who has continued to add to her army of supporters over the years, inspired donations of more than £6million in a week.

The mum-of-two was diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer just days before Christmas in 2016.

Last Monday, she shared a heartbreaking Instagram post saying she was now receiving end-of-life care at her parents’ home in Woking, Surrey, because the heroic efforts of her team of medics at The Royal Marsden Hospital in South West London were now fruitless.

She said her body “simply isn’t playing ball”, adding: “My body is so emaciated that I have no choice but to surrender to the inevitable.”

Deborah's main mission throughout her cancer journey has been to spread awareness that anyone can get the disease, and early diagnosis is key.

In a review of the book television presenter Davina McCall said: "Deborah's ability to find positivity in the darkest of places is an inspiration to us all."


Alongside the announcement, Deborah posted a photo of herself smiling and holding the book cover in her parent's garden.

Dame Debs told The Sun: "It’s been a labour of love! "And I think people will might find it surprising – it’s certainly not a follow on to book one.

"It’s all about mindset and how the learnings of a positive mindset might help you even in the darkest moments."

Just days ago Deborah was sat in the same garden with Prince William, as he officially made her a Dame.

The royal was thought to have cleared his diary and made the trip to the home in Woking, Surrey, especially to ensure she got the gong from him.

Deborah told how she had been blown away by the day, posing for a number of snaps with William and having a natter.
