Sunday's Child - A book release

The last time I actually picked up a book physically is probably a year ago. It's mainly because carving out time to devote to reading is a luxury or nearly impossible. To sit still and actually hold a book for x-amount of time is still a dream in this life time. I read, but on the run, in between and whenever I can. That said, eBooks are most likely to be the reading choice for me.
Sunday's Child is written by one of my blogger friends, Anne Lyken-Garner, and guess what? It is available in electronic form, so you can read anytime you'd like, on the run and in between.

Congratulations Anne on your published work!
About The Book: Sunday's Child tells of the harrowing systematic abuse of a little girl by her grandmother, while giving the reader a glimpse of the political and cultural climate of 1980's Guyana.

In a desperate economic crisis, Guyana is forced to resort to food and energy rationing. Acclaimed author Anne Lyken-Garner's tale picks up on the humorous aspects that the young girl experiences while forced to spend hours in food lines, simultaneously unfolding the sadness and desperation that is her everyday life.

A soldier in Jonestown, where more than nine hundred people committed mass suicide, the young girl's uncle tells her of the dead bodies he's seen - but she doesn't mention the one that she herself has witnessed. When she loses the one person in her life who cares for her - and tries to save her - she knows in her heart that her life is about to end...

Sunday's Child will be released on March 22nd. Please go to the author page on release day to purchase this book:


ANNE LYKEN-GARNER is the author of Sunday's Child, a riveting true-life tale of overcoming the worst of systematic emotional and physical abuse. Anne can also be found on her How To Build Confidence blog. All her confidence-building articles here are gleaned from her life’s experiences, which have taught her that your past doesn’t’ have to shape who you are today.


Anne has also started an event on Facebook towards this release. You can join this event at the link below to ask her any questions about anything relating to Sunday’s Child or her publishing journey. Event: http://www.facebook.com/events/385124968204320/

    2. My husband didn't necessarily want a kindle, but I got him one for his birthday last year and he hasn't looked back since. He takes it on holidays, on the train to work, and reads it in bed.

      The charge lasts for months - yes months. And when we went to Paris in April we couldn't get the Internet on our laptops. The kindle saved the day because we got all our emails on it.

  3. I can't imagine finding time to read in the daytime anymore so only read after I'm in bed before I fall sleep, sometimes just half a page sometimes a couple chapters. My husband and I each have a table light so that our light won't bother the other if they fall asleep first. It feels almost like a secret life when I read :)

    1. I used to have a light that attaches to my laptop so that I can read on my laptop at night without having to turn on the light.

    2. I read at night too. Or if I'm filming and there's a spare moment or too. I have to make an effort to read. I don't want to wake up one day and think that I've let such an enjoyable and fulfilling experience fall out of my life. I know you'll find my book very inspiring.

    1. Dusting off a kindle already? I don't even own one, although I have an ipad, it's great for reading too.

    2. Thanks, Aligaga.

      You'll be totally inspired. Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.

  5. I actually miss the days where I could spend hours with my nose buried in a book. So I can totally relate to reading on the run. Sometimes I'll end up giving up precious sleep time by reading before bed - this book sounds like it'd be one of those I'd think to myself "One more chapter, then I'll go to sleep!" :)

    1. Those days I took for granted. I used to date someone that was single, and he couldn't understand why I don't devote time to reading...OMG! I hope he learned by now, you don't read when you have kids, really...

    2. Stacy, my 14 year old read my book over the period of a week. She spent a couple of hours a night reading. She was so engrossed and it was so beautiful to see that she was so touched. I know you'll find this book intriguing.

  8. Thank you Amanda. I have been at work all day and didn't see this post until now. I appreciate your support. The event is finished now, but readers can still find some information on my confidence blog. They can also read the first 3 chapters for free. I don't want to leave a link here in the comments, but can give it to you if you wish to add it to the bottom of the post.
    Thanks again, Amanda.
    best wishes

  9. I am so happy and proud of Anne for completing her book. I know it was both heart wrenching and rewarding.

    1. It was very rewarding, Judy. My husband has just finished reading it. I was nervous about him reading it because even though he knows about my past, he didn't know the details. He said it was very inspiring and can't wait to read the next part. I was also able to ask him if the way it was written - the story coming from a child - worked.
      Each day I'm reaching more and more people, and it's due to the help of people like you, Amanda and several others who've helped me get Sunday's Child out there, and read and/or reviewed it.

    Congratulations Anne!

  11. Thanks JS. If you can, and if at all possible, please leave me a review on the Amazon page of Sunday's Child when you're finished. I've been told that the more reviews a book gets, the more other people buy it.
    Thanks again.
