One of our dear ketubah artists Joanne Fink suddenly lost her husband three years ago. Through her struggle she kept journals and has compiled them into a novel.
Now, she has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $18,000 by October 31st, 2014, the end of this month. When You Lose Someone You Love, is an illustrated book of excerpts from the grief journals she kept after her husband died unexpectedly. Joanne explains what is driving her to publish her work, “I want to publish this book to reach out to others going through the grieving process because I know first-hand how devastating it can be to lose someone you love.”
She says she’s actually had offers from several publishers, but they all wanted to change the book, changes Joanne could not support. She says, “Since I feel those changes would weaken its ability to help people who are grieving, I’ve decided to self-publish instead and just launched my first Kickstarter!”
