With some help from a 'self-publishing' publishing house, my 'Bald Lady' book is now a reality!!!

 

WHEW!!!  Who would have thought?????

 

I just downloaded the Kindle verson....and am so excited!!!!

 

For those who do not know me...I'm one of the 'old folks'....double primary...breast and colorectal...

 

For those who DO remember me....*smile*....THANK you!!!....most of the stories in this book are about experiences I had during my active treatment, and times shared with all of you!!

 

BIG hugs, Kathi

The price was set by the publisher...so on Amazon and Barnes and Noble it's VERY expensive for a 58-page book...

So that is why I bought some and will 'sell' at my cost...

The cover is simple, but it has both a pink ribbon and a blue ribbon on it...

 

Can't forget all of my 'pinks', after all!!!

Congratulations Kathy.  I'm anxious to read your book and I will buy a copy.  I also belong to another support group, Taxotears, for those of us who remain bald after Taxotere.  A member just published a book about her experience with that permanent side effect.  That book is named "Naked in the Wind", by Shirley Ledlie if anyone is interested, available on Amazon as well. 

Proud to know folks who are actually published.

"It's hard to say 'No' to a bald lady".....small book, 58 pages....but because of my publisher, it is already on Amazon and Barnes and Noble...and even Kindle!

(although the prices were set from the publisher, and I think it's waaaay too high....so I am buying some at my cost, and offering them at my cost, plus shipping...)

 

Hugs, Kathi

Is the Title a Secret?  How can we read it if we don't know how to get it?
