The Silver Lining Giveaway

The Silver Lining Giveaway

Last week, I received an advanced copy of our book! The real thing. In hardback! My hands trembled and I burst into tears when I opened it. Finally, after a whole heckuvalot of blood, sweat and tears, I held our beloved project in our hands. It was one of the more exciting moments of my life and the ultimate Silver Lining.

March 18th is the official publication date, BUT Elizabeth Messina, my beautiful, talented co-author, and I are super excited to partner with Goodreads to give away a SIGNED advanced copy of The Silver Lining!

It’s super easy to enter. Just click on this link:

The winner will be announced on February 1st.

Also, here is a sneak peak of some of the interior shots:

    Congrats on a well written book. Looking forward to seeing you at the cancer wellness center in Northbrook, Illinois in April. I read your book and laughed and cried as I remembered my own journey.

    How exciting and a blessing to you and so many others. I won't try to win a copy because I've preordered for my friend. All the best and congratulations!

    How exciting… a dream becomes reality.
    Congratulations, Hollye!

    I have already pre-ordered my copy on Amazon and am looking forward to sharing "The Silver Lining" with my readers.

    Great books rarely need a sequel. Their fulfillment
    has a beginning, middle and an ending. The storied saga
    of every woman's ordeal has been touched on with The
    Silver Pen. No longer is one left alone to mull the fears associated with breast cancer. As someone who was close to it, myself, I know every case is subjectively different. Yet if Hollye and Ms. Messina have achieved
    anything, it is to offer hope in its most incisively
    profound context. With my first reading I can relive my
    own associations close to such a condition and know that,yes,there is a light at the end of tunnel. The Silver Pen will provide a beacon for such hope. Congratulations!

    Congratulations, Miss Hollye! Beautiful pictures accompanied by your always insightful, inspiring words, perfect combination, pre-ordered mine when I first read about it. I hope you sell a gazillion billion copies!

    Congratulations over and over. There is a certain delicacy and care you are bringing to the experience with your writing and these gorgeous photographs. I think it will bring a smile and comfort to women about to tackle cancer. (Even better than a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down) ~Catherine
