About this project
Welcome to my Kickstarter campaign! My goal is to publish When You Lose Someone You Love, the book I wrote after my husband died unexpectedly three years ago. I want to publish this book as a way of reaching out to others going through the grieving process. I know first-hand how devastating it can be to lose someone you love. Connecting with those who were further along on their grief journey made a difference to me… it helps to know that you are not alone, that there will be days when you feel overwhelmed, nights when you can’t sleep, and times when waves of sadness wash over you unexpectedly.
At some point in our lives, most of us will experience the loss of someone we love and will have to deal with that loss in order to move on with our life’s journey. My hope is that When You Lose Someone You Love will help people do that. I've spent most of my career as an art director for companies in the greeting card, gift and craft industries. Over the past two decades I've written, designed, art directed and/or edited numerous books, including several best-sellers. Although this is a personal project, I have used my professional expertise to select pages from my grief journals that are 'universal truths'-- meaning they will resonate with others who had lost a loved one. Of all the products I've developed throughout my career, I believe this book is the most powerful. It's a gift of comfort for those grieving… offering hope without sugar-coating the challenges of losing a loved one.
I am asking for your help and support to make this book a reality! Please check out the cool Donor Rewards I have for you… and please share this with your friends!
Risks and challenges
There are not many risks to completing this project because most of the artwork for the book is done. If we surpass our goal, I'll be able to add a little color toward the back of the book where the text gets more hopeful.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
