I joined the ebook revolution!!!

Guess what?  I just published my first eBook on Smashwords!  So excited.  The story is entitled “In Memory of Dad” and is geared towards upper elementary and middle school kids, ages 8-14.  The story is based on the real-life struggles I went through when my dad passed away.  I was only 12 when he died, but I remember it as clearly as yesterday.  I wanted to share the experience with other kids who may be dealing with loss in any form.

You can get the eBook on many different formats, such as Kindle, pdf, online reading and apps for various hand held devices.  The best part?  It’s only $.99 to download!  I really hope that you will check it out and share it with your kids.  Please feel free to tell anyone you know who might be interested in this book as well!  Word of mouth really is the best promotion, whether it be in person or on a social networking site!

Soon the eBook should be available on Amazon and other top online retailers, but now you can buy it here at Smashwords.  If you do read it, please leave a quick review on Smashwords to tell me (and everyone else) what you thought!

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you lost your father too at such a young age. I would be honored if you read my book, I think you will definitely be able to relate even being an adult now. I think we never forget the feelings and confusion that accompany such a loss, regardless of how old we are when it happens. If you do read it, please let me know what you think! Since the story itself is pretty short, I am thinking about adding an afterword where I talk a little bit more about my own experience losing my father.


  1. Very sorry to hear of your loss, Maranda, but know you are who you are now because of your past and you seem to be doing everything you love while making your father proud.

    He knows you miss him and loves that you’re taking your experience to help others.

    And welcome to the other side of publishing. Someday I’ll join you but I’m just not ready yet.
