One month ago, Chelsea Hanson launched her new book The Sudden Loss Survival Guide: Seven Essential Practices for Healing Grief. Even though the global pandemic made it more challenging to celebrate and promote the book without face-to-face author events, the book is doing exceptionally well. There is a reason for that. It resonates with readers and with the circumstances we find ourselves in these days.
Through Hanson’s grief healing practices, this book delivers the essential answers and tools needed to survive, cope, and heal from the devastating impact of sudden loss. While you cannot control losing a loved one, you can consciously guide your own recovery and overcome the darkness and anxiety of grief.
“A reliable road map…” Mary Tousley, author of Finding Your Way through Grief
“Exactly what you need….” Allen Klein, author of Embracing Life after Loss
“Solace and hope…” Jan Warner, author of Grief Day by Day

Six or seven years ago my advice to aspiring authors of nonfiction books was to build an audience platform by blogging. An example of how critical blogging could be to securing a publishing contract can be found in the case of Ann Marie Ackermann, author of Death of an Assassin: The True Story of the German Murderer Who Died Defending Robert E.
