Joni Rodgers, a terrific novelist and memoir guru (Bald in the Land of Big Hair) may want to know she's co-authored a wonderful memoir by Nancy G. Brinker, founder of the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research and Susan's sister.
Right now the publisher is sponsoring a special campaign wherein if you pre-order the book, they will also send a signed, free copy to your sister (or anyone you designate) when the book is released. Cover price is $25, but I pre-ordered at Amazon for $14.
Joni is one of my amazing critique partners, for which I am eternally grateful. I can tell you without reservation that this will be one of the most moving, beautiful, and heartfelt books you have ever read. The early pages I saw knocked my socks off. Joni is a terrific writer, and Nancy Brinker is an amazing woman.
If you or someone you love has ever been affected by breast cancer, you need to read this book.
