Tomorrow, after 12:01am, several thousand people will wake up to find my latest novel, The Faded Photo, on their Kindle devices, just waiting to be read.
I hope it’s the latter.
The Faded Photo is my first women’s fiction novel and the subject matter is near and dear to my heart (pun not intended). You see, it’s about breast cancer. And while I pull on my own experience battling breast cancer, the book is not about me.
Or is it?
In hindsight, I have to reconsider that statement. You see, there are aspects of Frances Snyder in all of our lives. The story may not parallel my adventure, but there are emotions and feelings that certainly do. And I believe that will be true for all of you, too.
Regardless of whether or not you have personally experienced breast cancer, you certainly have experienced the strain of being a daughter, wife, and/or mother during trying times. There are certain expectations of us, roles that we have to play…or think we have to play. Quite often, we sacrifice so much of ourselves in order to support our families that we become lost along the way.
If you haven’t preordered The Faded Photo, I hope you consider doing so. It’s available in Kindle, Print, and Audio. And if you need a little more encouragement, I’ve attached the PROLOGUE with the actual faded photo that inspired this novel.
