  1. Hi Susan, The Shadows in My Heart, my memoir, was published and released in September 2017. My story is timely with the current sexual abuse allegations. I am encouraged with the positive response received from the book.

    I started setting up a blog, but with writing and now the onset of marketing and promoting the book I feel as though I need instructions versus figuring it out on my own.

    What can you help me with?
