The Year of the Book

It’s been an amazing year.

112 backers. 443 books sold or donated. 1 book award. 12 events.

1 year ago was book launch day.  Thanks to 112 Kickstarter backers, my memoir was brought to life a year ago and since then, 443 books have been sold, donated or given to Kickstarter backers through my website, 6 amazing bookstores – Aaron’s Books in Lititz, PA, From My Shelf in Wellsboro, PA, Greetings & Readings in Hunt Valley, MD, Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg, PA Fact and Fiction Books in Missoula, MT and Sundial Books in Chincoteague Island, VA and through countless events including two Camp Widow events.

At the end of 2014, it was announced that the book won 1st Place Editor’s Choice at the North American Book Awards.

At the end of 2014, I also began hearing some reviews beyond friends and family. These were hard to read but it has stressed to me the importance of quality and patience.  I was so happy to hear from those of you who just plain loved the story I had to share.  Over the next 6 months, I plan to edit the book with feedback from readers and will release a 2nd edition of the e-book version based on this feedback.  All Kickstarter supporters will receive a free download of this 2nd edition.

Thank you for an amazing first year.
I look forward to many more ahead!
