Cancer Was Not a Gift & It Didn’t Make Me a Better Person – It’s Here!

Finally, it’s here! After talking about my book for, well, for five years, it’s finally finished and available for you to read! It’s sort of like talking about going on a diet and losing weight. After a while, people say, enough. They expect you to stop talking about it and produce some results. Same deal with writing a book. Eventually, you’re expected to stop talking about it and produce a book. And now I can finally say, I did it. (Maybe some day I can say the same about the weight thing too. I am still working on that).

Cancer Was Not A Gift by Nancy StordahlI’d be kidding myself, and you as well, if I said I didn’t care how many copies of my book sell. I do care. But on the other hand, my memoir is a story that needed telling, so regardless of what happens sales-wise, it’s very satisfying to share my “unsanitized” story about cancer as I know it.

Memoir is probably my favorite genre, or one of them anyway. I love reading stories about real people and real struggles.

One of my favorite memoirs is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. It’s wonderfully bizarre. Another favorite is The Mercy Papers:  A Memoir of Three Weeks, by Robin Romm. This one’s about a daughter whose mother dies from metastatic breast cancer. Very raw. Which is exactly why I love it. And a third favorite of mine is A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas. This one’s about grief and dogs. So poignant, one to tug at your heartstrings for sure. I highly recommend all three.

Back to mine…

You can purchase Cancer Was Not a Gift & It Didn’t Make Me a Better Person:  A memoir about cancer as I know it, here on my site in pdf format. You can also purchase a print copy on Amazon and it is now available on Amazon for Kindle as well.

For now I want to say…

Thank you, dear readers, for inspiring, encouraging and supporting me every day.

I couldn’t have done this without you! I hope you will help me spread the news by sharing this post wherever you can. Thank you in advance!

What’s your favorite memoir?

Have you read any of the three memoirs I mentioned?

Okay, I have to ask, do you have plans to read mine?

Rebecca, Thank you. I am so glad to hear you are working on a book too. It's a very interesting process in many ways and I wish you all the luck with it. Even more importantly, good luck with all the cancer stuff you are dealing with. It's a lot, but you're not alone.
