Margaret Norton, When Ties Break (Book Giveaway Contest)
Today, I’m so excited to tell you about this book When Ties Break: A Memoir About How To Thrive After Loss by Margaret Norton. I’m so excited because this is a book that I helped Margaret edit from its first manuscript stages, and now it’s a reality. It’s official release date is August 3 from Tate Publishing, although you can already order it here from their website.
But there are even cooler things about this book besides the fact I saw it in its early stages! When I decided that not only would I talk about children’s and YA books and education issues on this blog, but also I wanted to share ways to help women and children around the world, I knew Margaret’s book would be a great addition to that goal. You can read Margaret’s book When Ties Break and really use it (the purpose of this blog, of course!). You can learn from her life story. You can see how someone actually took terrible situations and turned them into positives. You can see how someone made it through those tough life transitions, and you can do all this by reading her book! That is what is REALLY so cool about Margaret’s book.
*****What’s even better is that she has agreed to give away one PDF copy of her book to a lucky winner. To enter the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment or question for Margaret below. One person will be randomly chosen from these comments. Contest ends Friday, July 9 at noon CST.
So, what will you learn about in Margaret’s memoir? Well, here are just some of the issues that Margaret has faced and learned from in her life: sibling abuse, family estrangement, spousal abuse, abortion, divorce, death of loved ones, drug recovery, financial duress, illness, sexual exploration, and career change. If you are experiencing or struggling with any of these issues or know someone who is, Margaret’s memoir can serve as a guide through these difficult times. And she made it through with her faith. When Ties Break is a memoir that explores the universal themes of loss and recovery, and answers the question: “Why do bad things happen to good people?”
In the foreward, Janet Grace Riehl, author of The Sightlines collection, states: “Margaret turned the lessons gained during a tumultuous life into a source of wisdom for women struggling with past pain and future directions.” So, if you have a question for Margaret about any of the issues she faced, writing a memoir, or even about her life coaching business (Life Transitions), leave it in the comments, and you might just win a free copy of the book. We’ll also just take comments or even “PICK ME!”
(By the way, did you know you can read PDF copies on a Kindle? Just found that out–so maybe I’m behind the times!)
