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!
