Another free day was on the blog tour schedule for A Long and Winding Road, but you might want to make a quick visit to Broad Street Review to read a review written by Maria Corley. Tomorrow we’re scheduled for a spotlight by Chuck Allen.
Tuesday is the big day—the launch of both Anaiah Press and my memoir, A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos. Anaiah is hosting Twitter Chat #AnaiahLaunch from 12-1 pm (EDT) and a launch party on Facebook from 6-8 pm (EDT) featuring “meet and greet” sessions with Anaiah authors. I’ll be available to chat on Twitter, and my time slot for the Facebook party is from 6:45-7:00. Join us to chat, ask questions, or just to say hello.
There are more reviews, interviews, and guest posts scheduled for the two weeks following the launch. To see the complete itinerary, CLICK HERE.
Release Date: July 1, 2014
About the Book: Sometimes reality really bites. Alzheimer’s has wrapped Mom’s brain into knots, vascular dementia has attacked Dad, and, instead of carefree retirees, we have become caregivers. Regardless, dreams die hard, and we somehow stumbled into the purchase of a forty-foot motor home. That’s when all four of us set out on this seven-week trek across sixteen U.S. states. Now, Dad stopped-up the toilet again, Mom wet her last pair of clean jeans, and David just announced that he was hungry. My head is beginning to pound, and I know this isn’t going to be the easygoing retirement we’d imagined for ourselves.
Linda Brendle takes you on a roller-coaster ride of emotional and spiritual challenges that many families are facing right now. Co-dependency, mental breakdowns, and finding love after divorce are just a few of the issues weaved into this journey of caregiving. Whether you’re looking for an inspirational story to help teach you how to “let go and let God,” considering becoming the caregiver for one of your own parents, or are just looking for an entertaining travel book, this story is sure to strike a tender nerve.
