Just over three months ago I woke up one morning with an idea. It was an idea for a book. I knew next to nothing about publishing or the book industry, I just knew that there was a book that needed to be written. It was one of those magical moments when you feel like everything in the universe is conspiring in your favor. Within a few weeks, I had a publisher, an outline and I was busy writing. Now just a few months later I am a published author and it feels like a dream!
Those same three months have also been some of the hardest I’ve ever had in Cancerland. My health was deteriorating rapidly and I needed radiation quickly in order to fight back tumors that were rapidly stealing my ability to breathe. Cancer has never made me sicker and some days I wondered what on earth I was doing trying to write a book, about hope, and courage, and resilience, nonetheless, as everything around me seemed to be falling apart.
But that’s life, isn’t it? Can’t take the good without the bad. Today I am celebrating, not just feeling a whole heck of a lot better after treatments, but also accomplishing a life-long dream, one I never thought I would see come true.
I would be so honored if you all would download my e-book today! It will be free on Amazon for the first five days. The higher up the charts we can get this book to rise the more people it will reach, so please download and share this link with your friends! And when you do read it, if you could post your honest review I would be incredibly grateful! Reviews are another way books can get more visibility.
Thank you to all of you who made this book a reality. It took hundreds of people (nearly 800 to be exact) to make this book happen. If you were one of my Kickstarter supporters, thank you. If you were one of my cheerleaders from the beginning, thank you. If you follow this blog and have been watching my journey, thank you. I am so grateful for all of you. I could not have done this without you. This book is for all of you!
P.S. If you want to see the live launch event happening today, July 7th, at 1 pm EST, you can do so by registering anytime before 1 pm via this link!
