Expecting Sunshine: A Journey of Grief, Healing and Pregnancy After Loss, a memoir by Alexis Marie Chute

PRE-ORDER INFO:

The book is available on Amazon for pre-orders. Check it out now by clicking here. I’ve also heard that pre-ordered books are often shipped before the actual release date, so that’s just one more reason to order early.

I will also have a select number of books that I am selling directly from my website. You can click here to pre-order that way. Any books ordered through me will be signed by yours truly.

Once the book is officially released on April 18, 2017, it will be available for purchase through all major book stores.

 

BOOK TRAILERS:

As an author AND visual artist, I love every opportunity to combine these two worlds. Therefore, making book trailers for Expecting Sunshine was a no brainer. My wonderful friend Helen Massini did the voice overs for two of the trailers. Helen is such a pro and truly an up-and-coming actress and singer.

Helen and I had a blast hanging out while our daughters where at Brownies. It was amazing to see Helen bring my words to life, and with such wonderful musicality.

Now, the footage and audio is in the talented hands of Expecting Sunshine crew member, Tom Lim. Tom never fails to surprise me with his creativity. He’s an engineer by day, and a creative force by night.

It will still be a few weeks before the trailers are ready to share, but if you want to see them first, subscribe to receive this blog feed by email. Click here to subscribe. Subscribers will also stay up to date on all happenings with Expecting Sunshine, both the film and the documentary. This includes book launches, special offers, film premiers, and much more. I look forward to connecting with you!

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well I also believe it takes a group of people to create a movement. That is the goal with Expecting Sunshine. I hope this movement will lead our culture into a better understanding of death, how to talk about it, and how to accept its reality in a healthy and positive way in our lives. I also hope that this movement will move the hearts of readers and viewers.

 

As always, thank you so much for reading – and sharing – this blog post!

Sincerely,

Alexis Marie Chute

 

Last Chance to Include your Baby’s Name in the Film

Expecting Sunshine documentary still needs contributions to bring the film to life. We are still $4,860 short of our fundraising goal. This is where we need your help.

As the film is nearing completion in the editing stage, there are a few very special opportunities to get involved and support the project.

We have four contribution levels that will be closing soon. By November 30, 2016. These contribution levels all include personal or business names in the film credits. These credits will always be a part of the documentary, which will be shown all over the world.

This is your opportunity as a parent to remember your baby that died. Or to celebrate your child born after your loss. Your son or daughter’s name, or nickname, will be publicly acknowledged and celebrated. At the end of the day, this is what brings me the most joy with this film.

This is also an opportunity for businesses and professionals to join with the film in supporting those who grieve. Expecting Sunshine Documentary strives to bring attention to taboo topics, to remove the stigma around these types of losses and celebrate children! Children with us, and those that live on in our hearts.

 

PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING BEFORE NOVEMBER 30, 2016
