Martin and I are meeting on it today. I am hoping to get the brunt of it together today for the proposal.
What I have come to realize is that within this blog there is probably 3 books alone! Let alone all the other stuff we still have to write!
I was telling Martin this morning that the first book is about Andrew and his journey here, through leukemia & the profound impact he had on people lives while here. That alone is a big ass book if I put in most of the hospital posts from here in the book. I don’t think we’ll be able to put in a lot of the posts since his ascension, that will have to be the 2nd book, unless I want the first one to be as big as War and Peace!
The 3rd book will about a mother’s journey through grief. Martin asked what about the father’s grief? I said, then get to writing it buddy! It’s my grief in the blog! :-)
So now I’m thinking we’ll have 2 book proposals right out of the gate! I think I will be ending the first book soon after his service or the memorial in Ireland, then put what I wrote on by his picture on his poster at his service “TO BE CONTINUED!” Then have the poem Jeremy wrote end the 1st book.
Second book will be ALL the signs and information he has been sharing with us. Maybe starting with the Christmas miracle he gave us.
Third book, our journey through grief & how to come out the other side of it. How to stay connected with your child when they cross.
Great thing is, is that all 3 of these books are pretty much written! We could have 3 books come out in a year without having to write anymore! Cool huh?
IT’S ALL GOOD!
