Today is a great day, thanks to you, and Inkshares.
I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am without the experience I had working with Inkshares on Sunshine is Forever. I have had both negative and positive experiences with the company, but I know their editorial process really improved my writing and taught me a ton. I want to thank Inkshares and all of you for supporting me with this book. You helped elevate me to the next level.
I’ve been querying to get a writing agent for 7 years. Well, I can finally announce that I have officially accepted representation with Jennifer Soloway at Andrea Brown Lit. I am thrilled! Here’s to a long and prosperous writing career!
I appreciate all of you! Don’t forget to review Sunshine is Forever on AMAZON!

I hope that you all are doing well! I wanted to send you a very short, but really exciting update: this past week How to Get Run Over by a Truck was in the Top 20 best selling non-fiction books on Amazon last week! We made it to #17 - which is nothing short of incredible! Especially almost a year after the book was first published!!!
Thank you for believing that this book would be successful, even when no one in the publishing world did. You have put this book into the hands (and ears!) of so many people!!! You are an amazing, generous and kind person. Words can’t express how grateful I am for your support then, and now!
Good Morning Readers and Happy Tuesday,
This update has been in the works for a long time now, but the wait is over! Today is the day! I am pleased to announce that When I’m 64 has been scheduled for production and will be released on March 27th, 2018. There are many small deadlines that myself, along with the team at Inkshares will be targeting, so this date is subject to change but we will do everything in our power to have this book in your hands on or before that date.
Over the past 11 months, I have been working in the wings to ready the book for print. The developmental edit was hugely helpful and has resulted in a polished manuscript that is ready for the copyeditors to refine. The cover is a gorgeous visual representation of this story that means so much to me, and is ready to be tweaked to fit the final pour from production. And lastly, the photos that bring the story to life have been lovingly selected and are ready for inclusion within the manuscript.
There is a lot of work that will need to get done between today and the publication date, but I am eagerly looking forward to all of it. I will send along important updates as we get closer to the release, but in the interim please feel free to share the link with anyone you think is looking for a good read, has a book club or happens to run a library ;).
As always, thank you for your support!
I hope that you are doing well and that you’re having a wonderful Tuesday, and that your summer has been nothing short of glorious! I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you a few really exciting things about How to Get Run Over by a Truck! (I know, it’s the little book that just.wont.quit.)
Last week the team at Audible reached out to me to let me know that my the audiobook of How to Get Run Over by a Truck is going to go on sale today for the gloriously low price of $2.95! So, if you have ever wanted to hear what my sweet, sweet voice sounds like - this is your chance! This is a great gift to get for someone who is about to go on a long road trip, or someone who is ill and reading isn’t a tangible possibility because the pain from their illness is too distracting (I was in that camp, and I know I would have loved an audiobook!) or for the older people in your life (who don’t mind a couple of well placed curse words…) If you do get one, please let me know! I would LOVE to hear what you thought about it!
In some other amazing news, How to Get Run Over by a Truck was featured in 3 different news magazines this past week! Including, Shape Magazine, Reader’s Digest, and (most surprisingly!!) The Daily Mail in the UK! To see that almost a year after the book was published that there is still a such a huge interest in the story is SO incredibly moving!
I hope that when you see these articles you are reminded of what a huge gift that you gave to me and to these reader by being an early supporter of this work! The messages from perfect strangers about how much they needed this story of hope, amazingly, continue to roll in, and they have you to thank for that!
I am so grateful to you for believing in this story, for believing in me and for your support in bringing this story to thousands of people around the world!! You are amazing
