SPOOKTACULAR BLOG HOP

SPOOKTACULAR BLOG HOP
 
Many thanks to Kathy at "I'M A READER, NOT A WRITER"; AND Rhiannon at "THE DIARY OF A BOOKWORM," for co-hosting this mega-hop.
If you're a new visitor, thanks for stopping by, and if you're a regular, I hope you'll like the news this week. I share insight into my new manuscript, The Rabbits of Alsace Farm, and news about a new blog I'll be launching soon.
 
Rabbits deals with two individuals caught up in one woman's slide into the rabbit hole of dementia. Tayte Donnelly and Noah Bradhurst believe they are irreparably broken, and for good reason. They've never had a successful relationship with anyone, incuding their parents. But when their lives connect with Agnes Devreaux Keller, they discover gifts they never knew they possessed, and if they can avoid repeating mistakes from their trouled pasts, they may be able to not only help Agnes, but save themselves as well.
 
This project is very personal to me. Visit my web site and read more bout the book and the web sit I'm setting up to help families dealing with this devastating disorder. 
 
And now, let me tell you about my prize--a $25.00 Amazon gift card, and here's how you win. You can enter multiple times, but each entry must be posted separately to be counted.

  6. Hi Laurie,
    Another great Hop. I was at your site and was reading about Rabbits at Alsace Farms.I look forward to reading it. I think it's wonderful that you are starting a new Blog to deal with this. Personal experience in dealings with any illness ca give much much relief in knowing others are dealing with it and what they share is and can be very comforting and knowledgeable. I finished Free Men And Dreamers. Can I just say it was an AMAZING journey to take through your books. Just an incredible series. Thank you .

  30. I visited your website. The Rabbits of Alsace Farm sounds wonderful! I can only imagine just how personal the story hits home. I've known many people with loved ones who have suffered from dementia and Alzheimer's.

    I also think that the blog you're starting, "The Rabbit Hole Journals" is a brilliant and touching endeavor. I sincerely hope that through your site, you are able to communicate and share experiences and advice with one another. It's always so nice to have a great support group :)

    Thank you for a fantastic giveaway, and for sharing your book and your ideas! It's people like yourself who make a difference! :)

  36. Hi Laurie, I don't know where my first comment went but I'll try again. :)
    I really can't wait to read The Rabbit at Alsace Farm. I know how much this means to you. Your new Blog is going to be wonderful because we all know there isn't anything more comforting then hearing how others are dealing with their situations and hearing you aren't alone and finding more info out.
    Now, I just wanted to slip in here that I finished Free Men and Dreamers series :(
    After my daughter picked me off the floor sobbing reading Book 3 lol . Laurie, what can I say , I'm in awe of your mind and how you pout this series together. I've always loved History and held the highest respect for our founders but this was an incredible series for me. Thank you so very much. :)

  43. I visited your website. Bless you on your journey. It is a hard one for me, as Alzheimer is hereditary in our family. We too missed the early signs in my Granny. Until one day my Uncle showed up and she was standing at the kitchen sink with a knife and had tried to kill herself. My sweet Granny who never raised her voice to anyone or said a curse word or did anything horrible changed overnight. She forgot peoples names, cursed out nurses, and was just no longer the same person.
    It is a sad, scary disease and I hope they find a cure, soon.
