Last post was a piecing together of various tidbits I added to the Final Draft of my book, “Inheritances: What we Gain when we Lose”.
This week, the manuscript will be placed in the hands of three who have offered to take up red-pencil duties, fight the battle against improper punctuation, grammar and those nasty little typos that seem far higher in number since my stroke.
I almost, but not quite, feel sorry for these three angels – they have their work cut out for them, as I tend to write just as if I’m chatting on the phone with a friend – – not always the best approach for flawless grammar.
Nevertheless, there is such a deep, feeling of contentment today – To have made this journey and now, to be nearly ready for my “baby” to be introduced to the world.
I’m almost there.
Inheritances is the a compilation of the words I needed when my life was turned upside down by loss after loss. When I lay awake at 3:00 a.m., wondering how this all could have happened and just what, was I going to do about it? Could do about it? Had the will and energy to do about it?
When the dark before the dawn blinded my eyes, stifled my soul and seemed bent on suffocating my spirit.
A tale of what can happen when you walk through your adjustment (grief) phase after losing – a musing of the gems gained along the way.
It contains every story I invented for myself on the days I wanted to lay down and give up. The ones that came true and the ones I still hope for.
A little messenger to whisper, “It’s okay – that’s normal – you will make it through if only you hang on.”
Last night, while re-acquainting myself with Amazon self-publishing accounts and how-to’s, I failed to find how to add a ‘coupon code’ for my new release.
Yes, it may be there, but after a long day and blurry eyes, I finally trundled off to bed, to solve the problem while I slept…
For you see, I do not wish for my WordPress Brethren to pay what the masses do – nope – I want a ‘special deal’ for here…
And so, after looking at a myriad of possibilities, I’m taking the quick and easy way out –
I’m offering my book here, as advanced copy form, for 41% off what it will be listed at Amazon, come June 1st. ($2.35 instead of $3.99)
The advanced copies will also be delivered prior to the debut date of Amazon publication.
Just so, if it becomes popular, you can say you got it a full week before everyone else did…Shallow I know, but all in good fun.
