My tribute to Carole Gill
Over the weekend, my fellow Creativia and ASMSG authors were shocked, and saddened, to hear of the unexpected death of Carole Gill’s husband, John. They had just left for a much anticipated vacation of relaxation in Spain. Thank goodness they had friends traveling with them to help her with this crisis. I can’t imagine dealing with the death of your loved one while in a foreign country.
The news hit me pretty hard, as it’s only been 21/2 year since I lost my Bob. I know what she’s going through, having your heart torn in half, realizing you are no longer a part of a whole. Other than losing a child, the death of your spouse is the hardest loss to overcome.
I met Carole while I was floundering around in the thick mire of self-publishing. Between Carole and Julie Northrup, they helped me find my way, and their words of encouragement have led me to where I am now. Without them, and Bob’s stories, I have no idea where I’d be now. Probably on a Funny Farm. So, thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart.
Carole indicated that she won’t be wiring anymore. I know right now she’s feeling this huge void that she has no idea how to fill, and the furthest thought from her mind is writing. It also doesn’t help that John was very supportive of her and her writing career. She’s a very talented writer, and I fervently hope that she finds her muse again. This post is my small way of showing my love and support for her through these dark days.
Listed below are links to her author interview and reviews of her books I’ve read. You can even wander over to Carole’s website to read free chapter excerpts. Please let her know how much you care by sharing my post or buying one of her books. Thank you.

MY BOOK REVIEWS:
Hmm. As I was going through my reviews, I see I missed the 2nd book. I bought it, but it got buried in my kindle.
I want to apologize to my followers for the overabundance of blog posts the last few days. I’m in the process of bringing all my old posts from Blogger to WordPress. I intended to bring them over slowly, but even our best laid plans go astray. Anyway, Carole, I’m so sorry for your loss and you have my deepest sympathy.
