THREE YEARS SINCE PUBLICATION

Resurrection Lily was published three years ago today. It is a fantastic feeling to know that people are still discovering it, and it's resonating. Knowing there is a trickle-down effect and people recommend it to their friends brings me a lot of personal satisfaction. Positive feedback continues to fuel my BRCA/hereditary cancer advocacy efforts. Gratitude to all of you who helped make it happen. ~ Amy
