Not everyone is born a natural caregiver.

One moment, digital journalist Joy Johnston is a cynical workaholic with an underwater mortgage. The next moment, she faces the responsibility of caring for her eccentric mother who’s battling colon cancer, just six months after her father’s death from Alzheimer’s. As an only child, she has no choice but to slap on the latex gloves, and get to know more about her mother — and herself — than she ever imagined possible.

The road from reluctance to resilience is bumpy and splattered with bodily fluids, but it also offers unforgettable lessons. Who knew you could learn how to change a colostomy bag on YouTube, or that hospice nurses like telling dirty jokes? Peppered with snarky humor, vivid observations, and poignant honesty, this essay collection will resonate with anyone drafted into a family health crisis.

Memoir – And Then I Am Gone

And Then I Am GoneAnd Then I Am Gone
A Walk with Thoreau
By Mathias B. Freese
Publisher: Wheatmark
Published: September 2017
ISBN: 978-1627875387
ASIN: B075V532GN
Genre: Memoir
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), kindle

And Then I Am Gone: A Walk with Thoreau tells the Story of a New York City man who becomes an Alabama man. Despite his radical migration to simpler living and a late-life marriage to a saint of sorts, his persistent pet anxieties and unanswerable questions follow him. Mathias Freese wants his retreat from the societal “it” to be a brave safari for the self rather than cowardly avoidance, so who better to guide him but Henry David Thoreau, the self-aware philosopher who retreated to Walden Pond “to live deliberately” and cease “the hurry and waste of life”? In this memoir, Freese wishes to share how and why he came to Harvest, Alabama (both literally and figuratively), to impart his existential impressions and concerns, and to leave his mark before he is gone.

By Daniel A. Smith

ASIN: B06XP2N459

A soulful mix of writing, geology, rock and roll, and lost ancient nations from the author of the award winning historical novel, Storykeeper.

“Orb Stones & Geoglyphs neatly juxtaposes the author’s personal and geologic discoveries while tracing the roots of stories that beg to be told. The result blends autobiography with science and insights into a writer’s evolution using a warm, inviting tone.” Donovan’s Literary Services – Midwest Book Review

Memoir – The Year I Turned 25

The Year I Turned 25The Year I Turned 25
By Raquel Fletcher
Publisher: FriesenPress
Published: January 2017
ISBN: 978-1525501173
ASIN: B01MUF1OW4
Genre: Memoir
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S. or Canada), kindle

“I always thought twenty-five was the year I’d finally be grown up, the year the world would finally start taking me seriously, the year I would finally know what I wanted. And yet…”

The Year I Turned 25 catalogues the ups and downs of a TV reporter in her mid-twenties, who takes on the added challenge of training an adorable, but misbehaving puppy. Sometimes melancholic and other times hilarious, this brave and thought-provoking memoir approaches dating, sexual assault and mental health in a personal, but relatable way. This book is for every woman who ever asked herself if something was wrong with her and for every dog lover who discovered true love in a puppy.

“This project isn’t about – and was never about – figuring out who I am. It’s about figuring out how to figure out who I am.”
