The buzz about sue
Once I published my "paper baby," I realized that I had much more work to do to "deliver" Detours: Unexpected Journeys of Hope Conceived from Infertility to the public. Advertising and marketing the book became my full-time job. First, I became a professional member and partner with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association because this organization was my lifeline during my own struggle with infertility. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Detours will be donated to RESOLVE so that I can give back. Next, I had a huge book launch that coincided with the press releases I sent to all the radio stations and newspapers in my home state of Michigan. Within just 10 days of launching, Detours climbed to the #1 bestselling infertility book on AMAZON. In addition, Detours was released just a few weeks before National Infertility Awareness Week. Soon a number of the local radio stations wanted to interview me to discuss my mission of using Detours as a vehicle to provide support and offer hope and inspiration. In May, 2017, I went to my first Infertility Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. In June I had my first international interview with Natalie Silverman, founder of the Fertility Podcast, from Manchester, England. Word surely has gotten around about Detours in just a few short months since its release. Infertility affected me so profoundly, I am called to be a voice and create positive change for all who are affected by this devastating disease. If you would like me to be a guest speaker at your infertility group, your local women's group, or your book club, or if you would like to interview me for your local radio station or newspaper or podcast, please do not hesitate to contact me.
