I am trying to either get an agent or publisher to take on the Faces of Adoption/Loss/Infertility project. I’d like to package these essays into one book. It would be a wonderful way to educate the outside world, as well as friends and families, about how difficult the experiences we go through are.
But I need your help as I make my approaches.
There has been a great response so far to the “Faces of ALI” profile of Kir Piccini, parenting after infertility: some very moving comments, and some great traffic.
In terms of reaching the non-ALI audience, I’d like to take that to the next level. What seemed to work best for the last two profiles is for individuals to share the article on Facebook. To do this, scroll down to the bottom of Kir’s post to where there is a Share button: click on that button, then click on the Facebook button. This is, of course, if you are comfortable doing this.
Other ways to share Kir’s story: Instead of clicking on the Facebook button, share on Twitter, or pin it onto your Pinterest account.
Speaking of Pinterest, please feel free to add yourself to my “Faces of ALI” board. And of course feel free to “like” this board on Facebook and repin all the stories http://pinterest.com/2manyfish2fy/faces-of-adoption-loss-infertility/
Finally, thanks to fabulously talented Courtney from Bodega Bliss, we have a beautiful blog button that connects back to the series. And it’s so pretty! Please feel free to post in on your blog’s sidebar!
Here’s the code for the blog button:

Let me know if you are able to do any of the following things above, and I’ll love you forever. And you’ll be first in line for a free “Faces of ALI” book someday soon!
