    Red Dwyer - Author

    Red Dwyer’s Killing us Softly is a monumental book of heartfelt and practical advice for getting through and surviving the onslaught of cancer and death of a spouse.
    With the use of real time journal entries and blog posts, the author reaches out to readers in a unique way to guide them through all the emotions, responsibilities, and processes of being the caretaker of a marriage partner.
    Self-care and the care of the children are her primary focus, as she becomes the sole head of household and cup of love for her dying spouse and surviving family of nine children, three of whom are autistic.
    The book is supremely well-balanced in a way that has never been offered to the public before. The journal entries and blog posts draw us into her intimate life as she grieves privately yet exhibits her strength throughout and beyond the dying process. The focus is on helping the reader maneuver through the seemingly herculean feats of love and physical care which are assigned to the surviving spouse once the diagnosis of cancer is definite.
    From discussion on diagnosis and decisions to be made, through treatment and endgame, Red Dwyer holds our hand and shares with us her advice for not only surviving but also claiming our lives as we traverse this difficult and often hidden journey. She discusses the role of spirituality in the lives of the caretaking spouses, and the details of cancer treatment as a partner in the comfort of her loved one.
    Almost all of us are faced with treatment options at end of life, and many of us don’t face them until we are feeble and sick and not entirely in a place to make those decisions. While cancer has specific decisions to be made, Dwyer discusses the choices we all make when faced with extended treatment of a terminal illness or allowing nature to take its course.
    From diagnosis to hospice care, endgame and beyond, this author will be ultimately helpful to millions, who before this point have persevered and survived in silence.

Surprise Winners!

Two of this week’s winners had no idea he was entered! Who do you think won the copies of Mac Kinnon’s Breaux: An American Icon?

When the raffle went live, there was an error in it which prevented early comers from seeing the way to get 47 entries (most of which you can do everyday).  When I tromped over to RaffleCopter to fix it, I took the liberty of entering everyone who had already commented into the book giveaway…it was only fair.

The winners of the copies of Breaux: An American Icon are:




So, who do you think knew a chance was in the bag (having entered on more than one day) vs. those who had no idea they were entered to win?

There are no glitches this week. If you do not enter (Binky), you cannot possibly win!

What is up for grabs? Mantra for a Muse. The book which came into being directly in relation to the support of the M3 Readers. Enter for your chance at an autographed copy. If there are more than 200 entries, Bear will choose two numbers instead of one.

Click the cover of the book to be taken to the book giveaway. In just a few days, you could have 100 entries all by yourself!


Have you taken the new poll? I am going to be rearranging M3 soon. You get to help be part of the process. Did you enter to win the book?
