I have been working on a new book! It’s an anthology for people who have been affected by a rare form of cancer – anal cancer. I have a great group of writers who are putting together their experiences and thoughts and I am editing it and putting it all together. It will be professionally copy edited and I will be self-publishing through CreateSpace. It will be available on Amazon. We are planning for a paperback copy. An electronic version will be provided if there is a demand for that.
The target date for release is in Fall 2018. If you want to be advised when the book is available, please contact me and I will put you on my notice list!
The book is inclusive and diverse and will have stories written by men and women. Friends and family members of those affected also have some advice and experience to share. We have contributions by teachers, professors, nurses, social workers, technicians, clinicians, principals, counsellors, personal support workers, and so many more! It will be helpful to anyone who is affected with cancer, especially anal cancer. Professionals, family members, caregiver, patients and survivors will enjoy this book. It will include almost everything you need to get through!
