The excitement and anticipation of holding the sweet, small baby, feeling those first kicks on the belly, and wanting the best for him or her all while fighting a war within that begets destruction. In this nonfiction collection of stories written by thirteen pregnant women with cancer, they face two divine milestones: life and death. Labeled a miracle and a vision of hope and endurance of humanity, their stories have been shared in numerous social media articles and viral photographs, ten different news reports on NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox news, the Today show, local magazines and news stations, a national ad campaign by the American Cancer Society, People magazine, Wall Street Journal, a New York Times article, an LBBC brochure, blogs, Amazon Bestseller awarded “Fighting For Our Lives; A memoir,” local newspapers, radio, and a Yahoo feature article. Each of their voices are unique and in each chapter we see a glimpse into their journey with cancer and motherhood. “Our Story: Cancer Moms and Chemo Babies” digs deep into their fears, their hopes, their wisdom, and their unconventional friendship through motherhood and cancer.Tags: Cancer story, cancer, cancer memoirs and biographies, inspirational women’s stories, motherhood memoirs, cancer survivor books, cancer survivor stories
Horse is going after the sexy FBI agent who put him away.HORSEHer dark work clothes couldn’t conceal the smoking hot curves she kept underneath. One look at Vesper Cross lit me up like a firecracker on the 4th of July. How was I to know she’d get me jailed for a double murder I didn’t commit?I knew she was the law. The massive gun under her leather jacket was a giveaway. That and the fact that no matter how hard she tried, she dressed like an undercover fed. However smart and sexy she was, that told me loud and clear to keep well away. But I never could do what I was told.One dynamite night led to a long stretch in jail.Now I’m out, and I’m coming to get her.VESPERHuge in every sense, he’s got muscles on his muscles, firecrackers in his eyes, and what uncoils in his pants qualifies as artillery.When he said he was in ‘enforcement,’ I asked him which branch. He said, “I do some work for a group you may know. They’re called the Mafia.”I’ll put him away if I have to, but the first thought those eyes and those muscles fired up in me is that I should investigate him. In depth and in exhaustive detail. In a hard and penetrating interview. In depth and in exhaustive detail. I had no idea what a punishing stretch it would be, but it was a proportional use of force, all in the line of duty. That’s what I told myself.Who’d have thought that one night with the man who made his living as muscle for the mob would have me deep in a lethal mess of crime and corruption. And that our lives would depend on each other, regardless of whatever we thought about it. Or whatever we felt.I couldn’t help what I felt, even if at odds it was with the job I had to do.The hunter is hunted.This fast, hot, sexy tale is packed with explosive thrills of every kind. It’s a full-length standalone novel with no cheating and an HEA that will surprise the pants off you.
LAUNCH BIG EVEN IF YOU’RE STARTING SMALLGuerrilla is a style of warfare intended to surprise and harass enemies. It can also mean using unconventional and usually inexpensive means to generate interest or raise concern among the public. That’s basically how I’ll use it: book marketing strategies from the trenches to help you win the publishing war. However, instead of “surprise and harass” I will focus on “surprise and delight.” First you need to show up and get in front of the right people. Then you need to surprise and delight them. You need to be remarkable enough to be noticed. This is actually, far easier than you’d think.TRAIN THE INTERNET TO SELL BOOKS FOR YOUThis is a crash course on some of the more creative book marketing strategies I’ve discovered in my first year of publishing fiction. It builds on a lot of the content marketing and platform building tactics I’ve used to build two six-figure businesses around my non-fiction books. People often say it’s harder to market fiction… I’ve found it to be easier, because there is so much less competition (there are tons of books, but very few authors are using the strategies I use to get visibility and reach new readers). FAST AND EFFECTIVE BOOK MARKETINGI wanted to provide simple, actionable, measurable steps to publishing a high quality book quickly, doing only as much marketing as is necessary to launch your book professionally, and keep it selling enough to support you while you write another. I can’t tell if it’s too simple or too advanced, let me know what you think.I only mention the things I actually use, that I know work, and ignore all the other things that don’t get results. We’ll discuss paid advertising, release strategies, pricing and pre-orders, book giveaways, how to target your audience, viral exposure and press coverage, marketing hacks, and how to reach your first $1000 on Kindle.***The pre-order version of this book shipped with the wrong file!
