I am so thrilled with this cover, I know how important book covers are, before anyone reads a word they need to be drawn in with the images, reviews and the overall feel of the book, which is hard as most books some 80%, these days are sold as seen online.
Molly's hand drawn as continents of the world by a very talented young lady Meya Carlström who is 11 and lives in Sweden. She won hands down ! Our Bank Mollyday colouring in competition. She was up against fierce competition.
And I am lucky to recieve the finest reviews from my team.
It is going to print today.
My dream is now a reality.
For at least 25 years I have wanted to write a book. I had no idea my life would be the subject, for which over the years, I was still living it, trying to find conclusions to tricky situations, and my happy ending.
Six years ago, one year after we lost Molly, we applied for fostering. Part of the course was when the social worker asked, if we could write a few words about ourselves, this is the end product.
Life has such crazy twists and turns, as this book feels very much as if it is meant to be here, and birthed during this crazier year of 2020, which originally I thought would be a year of clear vision, but now our clear visions comes from a year of complete chaos, a breaking down of who we think we are, what we think we need.
To be able to see this first page in print, in a book, wow!
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. IT IS ALL PART OF YOUR LIFE'S PLAN.
THEY ARE THERE FOR A REASON.
Rocker Bye Baby from the onset is a unique and incredibly powerful book. Claire’s impassionate writing launches you into a stratosphere of emotion. Part autobiography, part esoteric, these two elements combine seamlessly to create something quite remarkable.
There has been a physical need to produce a book such as this, as the trauma of a full-term stillborn baby leaves you with such a void, but also with an intense need to form some logic and reasoning behind such a heart-breaking loss. This devastation has been the catalyst, the impetus, and the spark behind this memoir. Claire's life has been one of intense highs and lows. Her story carries us into the realms of big thinking, endless day-dreaming with some miracle-making on the side. Overall, it encourages you to never give up! On this journey, we confront the divine aspects of our very existence. One moment you will laugh aloud, the next openly weep.
A piece of writing which can create such an emotional juxtaposition is a rare and beautiful thing. Stark, absorbing, honest and immensely passionate. This book will leave you exhilarated, uplifted, and wanting more. A magnificent life-affirming debut.
WELCOME TO ALL THINGS ROCKER BYE BABY
This is a very exciting venture.
