My beautiful, talented and tragic grandmother Alice compelled me from her grave to write the story of her life. "All the love in the Land, Alice" is the result. Couched as historical fiction, told in her voice and those of her family and friends, the book is really a biography of a talented and driven woman who wove her own history in the early 20th century.
Hi, Joan. My mother-in-law made this book, So, What Is Love?, her primary focus after my father-in-law passed on. She wanted to tell other caregivers that they were not alone, that all caregivers share common problems. It is written in the first person, with a familiar style as though she's speaking to the reader across the kitchen table and a couple of cups of coffee.
She and I worked on structuring some of the text to provide some thoughts about how to handle different situations, while still maintain one's sanity. That's often extremely hard when your entire world seems to be heading south! We worked on it together toward the end of her life. Mom made me promise that if something happened to her before the book was finished that I would publish it for her. I have done so.
Welcome to the Book Marketing site. Your book sounds interesting, especially as my first book, which I published two years ago, was about the life of my mother, born 1914. I exchange book reviews with other authors to boost my listings. I'd be happy to exchange with you if you're interested.
