Up from the Pavement
Triumph over Grief and Trauma through Medicine, Miracles, Love, Laughter, and Faith

I was stuck in a nursing home for 3 1/2 months in 2008 and I blogged my daily trials and tribulations in a frank, honest, and often, humorous manner, accumulating somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 daily followers.  If I heard it once, I heard it a dozen times, people said I needed to “make it into a book.”

Seventeen and a half months later, I am actually working on just that.  I still have my faithful cheerleader and writing coach, Diane Owens, and we are just about to the point of either submitting query letters or book proposals to publishers.  We are going to proceed with the expectation that we will find someone to publish the story and expect to have a book to sell by December 2011.

Be the first on your block to own a copy.  Place your pre-order now!  I don’t know how much it will eventually cost, if published, but I’m willing to offer all pre-orders the low, low price of $14.99.  Send a check to:

Marlo J. Archer

1237 W. Auburn Dr.

Tempe, AZ  85283

If I don’t find a publisher by 2012, I’ll self-publish and you’ll still get your copy.  If it turns out that the published price is lower than $14.99, I’ll send a refund check to the address that was on your payment check.

All pre-orders will be numbered and signed by the author.  Reserve your copy now!

    LOL! I don’t think I’ll make my mom mail a check, but an author friend of mine warned me not to give away copies to everyone or you don’t make any money on a book, so I think I will go ahead and accept payment. Plus, I can tell a potential publisher that I’ve already SOLD one copy!

    Brian & Kathy Sogard purchase the 2nd and 3rd copies of this yet unpublished, but 10x rejected, book. About 15 queries remain out in the Universe. If 15 more rejections come in, then I will re-vamp the query and proposal for a second wave of submissions.
