I want to share with you this BookPageXTRA ad for Grace: A Child’s Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery.
I am looking forward to sharing at an expressive writing class tomorrow afternoon for cancer survivors called Lifeline. Susan, the lovely woman who teaches this class, extended this invitation a couple of months ago. It seemed like it was so far off when she invited me, but lo and behold, time flies once again! This will be great fun to not only be with survivors (I call these folks “My People”,) but also to be able to share the process of writing and creating Grace.
I had asked Bryan at Greenleaf a few months ago if I could keep the first page proofs. For some reason, they had to keep them for awhile, but last week, I received them. I will love adding these to my collection of Grace: A Child’s Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery building blocks. I plan to bring my spiral notebooks with all of the scribbles that my mom deciphered and typed into book form. I plan on bringing the very first proof copy of my first edition of Grace. And then, I have to bring an ARC…. oh, and also I should bring the eight different cover designs Greenleaf designed for me to choose from.
I think I better get out a big box and start piling these things in it!
