I’m giving away 5 free ARCs of Amanda Adam’s fabulous book, Heart Warriors. Amanda’s book moved me to tears and screams of laughter many times during the editing process, and yet, the message is very clear: CHD kids are never “cured,” and their lives are roller coasters. Millions of kids are afflicted with congenital heart disease, yet I bet you’d freak to learn that less than 1% of money taken in my the American Heart Association goes to CHD research.
Amanda is fast-becoming a major voice within the CHD community, and it’s clear to see why when you read her book. She doesn’t take crap from anyone, she’s a natural organizer – one would see that from her book proposal and ARC list – and she’s extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of kids and families in crisis. In fact, her Field Guide at the end of the book is chock-filled with information that you can’t find under one roof.
To get a feel for Amanda, I urge you to read a blog post she wrote that pretty much explains Amanda, her talent, her passion, and her love all in a nutshell. If you know someone with CHD, this book is their very best friend. Holler, and I’ll happily send you an ARC.
Amanda’s book will be available in print and e-book format in April.
