Read Me a Caregiver Love Story

March 21, 2016

Tell me, overworked, stressed-out caregivers, would you like to listen to a caregiver love story with end of chapter helpful hints while you rest your eyes?  Listening to my book on-the-go, I’ve been told, would be perfect. So I am considering ACX the Audiobook Creation Exchange. They make it sound easy. What do you think?

The Wishing Shelf Book Awards gave “More Than I Could Ever Know: How I Survived Caregiving” four stars.  “Full of wisdom and practical help for the caregiver. A RED RIBBON WINNER and highly recommended” they said, this group of British readers.Red_Ribbon_-_123rf“A perfect book for anybody who is a caregiver. I liked the style very much and the message was powerful and thoughtful” commented a 34-year-old female reader.

“A short read but, nevertheless, very powerful stuff. I liked the carousel analogy and the key tips at the end. There’s a lot of wisdom in here and practical help for any caregiver. The One Widow Two Lists chapter was particularly well done,” said a female reader, aged 51.

Library Selfie

December 29, 2014

I returned a book at the library a few days ago and almost ran into a tripod at the front door. They have posted my Jan 14 book signing event. I hope it’s warmer than it is today on Jan 14 at 1 PM. It was 33 degrees last night here in the Valley of the Sun.

The Ups and Downs of Caregiving

The Ups and Downs of Caregiving

Caregiving is intimate . . . it made me fall in love with my husband all over again.

Rich on a good day

It was a hot summer day, but a good day for Rich. He was strong enough to accompany me to a dinner function. As you can see. I was thrilled.

Title Survey

June 16, 2014

I had a title for my caregiver book long before I finished writing it. It was a title I was in love with because it was the center of my relationship with Rich. It was down-to-earth, direct, but with a hint of humor. It came from his words to me at the end of Chapter 10– “Hold My Hand, But Don’t Rub It.”

My editor convinced me that the real “ah, ha” moment of my book happens later in Chapter 17 (Last Call). And that is the title that made it to the cover.

I wonder what readers think. Do you like the current title “More Thank I Could Ever Know” or do you think “Hold My Hand, But Don’t Rub It” better?
