One Drop of Rain

My niece Molly was (somewhat belatedly) diagnosed with colon cancer on her 23rd birthday, two decades ago. What all she did next was... pretty McMasterish, really. She has finally put her story into print.

Kindle and print-on-demand editions available here.

I read this memoir in an earlier draft. As both a first publication and an indie publication, it needs all the signal boost it can get, so if you think well of it, by all means pass the link along. Molly does make cancer awareness rock.

Ta, Lois.

Cold Bayou scored a VERY nice review by the Historical Novel Society. https://historicalnovelsociety.org/…/cold-bayou-a-benjamin…/
And yes, the observation that it's maybe a tad too intricate - and the family relationships are a bit too tangled to easily follow - is entirely justified... though in fact a) I've never met anybody whose family connections WEREN'T intricately tangled and b) that's actually part of the point. That in Creole families, relationships WERE tangled, and familly get-togethers were complicated even when they DIDN'T involve murder and property-claims. But the fellow is in fact right, and I'll have to watch out for that in future work. (Too much Dickens...)
