I Have a Book Deal!

Today I signed a contract with Turner Publishing's Trade Paper Press. My book will be part of their Good Things To Know series.

I couldn't be happier! I want to thank Todd Bottorff and everyone at Turner.

I'll be (very) busy meeting my deadline, so see you in June.

If you have anything to contribute, please send your remarks to me ASAP.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who has come here, posted, called, or emailed me offline. I appreciate it more than I can say. Your willingness to share these private and painful experiences with me is humbling. I will do my best to get it right so others can learn from it. Hopefully we can help make the path a little easier for them.


  1. Congratulations! Congratulations! A million times congratulations!!!!!

  2. Congratulations and thank you for adding my blog! It is my dream to be published and I know how hard it is so huge congrats!

    I don't know if you read my blog or not but grief is my expertise (unfortunately) after losing my mom, sister and daughter over 3 years to different deaths. It might be too late but if you want any questions answered on my experience I would be happy to help. Email me at if you want or need anymore input for your book! And, I hope you celebrate today! AWESOME! Diana Doyle x

  3. Thanks, Diana.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your losses. Three, so close together! Hard to imagine.

    I would like to get your thoughts on a few things. Thanks for the email. I'll send you a msg right now.
