Hello! This is a long overdue update for both Expecting Sunshine memoir and documentary film! Better late than never and this update is a big one!


Expecting Sunshine: A Journey of Grief, Healing and Pregnancy After Loss

Expecting Sunshine will be released in 2 weeks! Pub-day, as my publisher calls it, is April 18, 2017! I am overjoyed that my story is getting out into the world – and that it is already touching the hearts of so many. I am getting news from readers that ordered Expecting Sunshine on Amazon that their books are already in the mail or have arrived at their homes! If you are a prime member on Amazon and want a book NOW, not two weeks from now, order and you’ll get it right away!

For even more motivation to pre-order Expecting Sunshine, do so BEFORE APRIL 18 to receive a very fun BONUS giveaway! Here is the info below. Please share it and help spread the word!

Special BONUS Giveaway for Pre-Orders! Limited-time bonus reading!

People ask me all the time:

– What was your husband’s experience of loss?

– What is the difference between male and female grief?

Well, in this bonus material, you will learn the answers to these questions – and more! You’ll get “in the head” of my hubby, Aaron Chute, and be able to compare, side by side, our opposing views on the same experience.

I re-wrote one chapter from my book from Aaron’s perspective; and the writing itself is an interesting story, which I share in the bonus.

In the bonus material, you will receive the chapter seen through my eyes AND the chapter re-imagined from the male perspective. But I didn’t just assume or make-up what Aaron was going through. We talked it out for three hours! He read the new chapter as I wrote it and has given his approval on this final version. This bonus chapter is right-on in terms of what he was thinking and feeling.

This is a fascinating look into male grief and the effect of loss on a marriage.

Anyone who wishes they could climb into their partner’s head, to figure out where he or she is coming from, will enjoy this behind-the-scenes speak peak.

This special only runs until April 18, 2017 when the book hits the shelves!

Don’t miss out on this exclusive bonus offer not found in the book or published anywhere else.

Expecting Sunshine: The Truth About Pregnancy After Loss

As much as I would love to have the film complete, great things take time. We made amazing progress on the film over the last year and it is so close to being finished! I get giggly just thinking about it. We are in the homestretch of editing and I’m exciting to post some editing-in-progress photos next week when I will be in the studio. Stay tuned for that and other little sneak peaks.

For now, I do have a passionate ask: we are still needing to reach our crowdfunding goal. We are shy $4000, which is the amount the editor needs to finish the project. I know everyone has already given so much, so I would ask: do you know anyone who would be interested in donating? It could be an individual or a business donation. Any little amount will make a big difference.

Here is our crowdfunding page with information about the film. Click here.

Thank you so much for helping spread the word and support this truly meaningful project! BIG GRATITUDE to you!
