A Snobby Girl’s Guide to Dealing with Cancer – Coming in September

ovariancancer

I’m in the process of editing, formatting and taking another client’s book through the independent publishing process. As you probably surmised by the title, A Snobby Girl’s Guide to Dealing with Cancer is a sobering memoir of one woman’s battle with ovarian cancer. Intended mainly as a guide for other women coping with the devastating consequences and side-effects of the fight against this menacing adversary, it’s a brutally honest take on a very difficult subject.

Author Maureen Bucci delves deeply into her own experiences not only with chemotherapy and radiation, but also the lesser-known facts of cancer treatment — from the loss of what you once perceived as “true” friendships, to the physical pain involved in hair loss. While she pulls no punches, Maureen also offers practical advice and inspiration for both patients and their devoted care-givers.

Since September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we’re releasing it in the next few weeks. The multi-talented Kia Heavey is in the process of designing Maureen’s logo and book cover, which will be incorporated into her Facebook Page, Twitter account and blog very soon.

Stay tuned for details!

Writestream Tuesday with Jake Danishevsky

Continuing my interviews with the authors of the CLFA, I’ll be chatting with Jake Danishevsky on Tuesday, February 18 at 1 p.m. Eastern about his book After Tastes and Tales from Russia: Forgive Me For Being Anti Social(ism).

A harrowing account of growing up under communism in the Ukraine, Jake’s book is a wake-up call for all Americans who value their freedom and liberty.

As Jake notes: “I am a Soviet born American Jew. I was born in and left Soviet Union, while it was and in some cases still is, oppressive and socialist nation. I love America and being an American. I could never understand, why would people willingly give up their freedom!!”

Jake and his wife.

Writestream Tuesday welcomes author Sarah A. Hoyt – UPDATED with Archive

Author Sarah A. Hoyt.

It’s an honor to welcome award-winning novelist, short story writer, blogger and fellow CLFA member Sarah A. Hoyt to Writestream Tuesday on February 4 at 1 p.m. Eastern. This incredibly talented and prolific author has produced eighteen novels, maintains a popular blog, and interacts actively with all CFLA members, always offering insightful commentary and analysis on a variety of issues. To quote her directly:

Hi there. I’m Sarah A. Hoyt. I am a novelist with (I think) eighteen novels out. There might be more, as I haven’t counted recently. I could tell you what genres I write in, but that is liable to change on very short notice. So far I haven’t written pure romance, hard sci fi or man’s adventure. However my unofficial motto is “no genre is safe from me.” To find out more about what I’ve done to various innocent tropes and subgenres, check out sarahahoyt.com I even have free samples of my books and a few free short stories. (Look under blue plate special!)

For more and links to buy my books, look under the “my books” tab, next to this one. All purchases appreciated, because unfortunately writers have to eat and keep a roof over their heads while writing.

Isn’t that the truth? 😉

SarahHoyt4

Sarah’s science fiction novels are published by Baen Books and her novellas and short stories by Goldport Press. I will do my best to help her keep a roof over her head and food on the table by encouraging my readers and listeners to tune in to our Writestream interview on Tuesday, February 4 at 1 p.m. Eastern. During the live broadcast we welcome your calls at 347-945-7246 and your participation in the live chat room. Incidentally, if you prefer to listen through your phone rather than online, you can dial that same number. Of course, if you’re already intrigued and/or inclined to purchase a book or two by Sarah A. Hoyt before next week’s interview, you can just click here.

For a taste of what’s to come, watch Sarah’s acceptance speech below.

See you then!

Writestream Tuesday welcomes author D.B. Corey on January 14 – UPDATED with Archive

Ready for some literary thrills? Join me for Writestream Tuesday on January 14 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I’ll welcome author D.B. Corey to the show to talk about his acclaimed debut novel, Chain of Evidence:

A serial killer stalks the streets of Baltimore, and Moby Truax is assigned the case of his career.

Problem is, his career is over.

The last thing an old detective wants is to chase a serial killer, especially one who disappears, and leaves the killing to a copycat.

Can Truax solve the case of two killers? Or will his young captain relieve him of duty, and perhaps his livelyhood as well.

Check out the book trailer:

I’ll also chat with D.B. about the writing and publishing process, the viability of social media in connecting with your audience, and his plans for future books. As always, we welcome your calls at (347) 945-7246 and your participation in the live chat. You can listen in by clicking on this link to the Writestream Tuesday episode with D.B. Corey or by phone at (347) 945-7246. We look forward to seeing you there!
