finding restoration in the brokenness

I've always had this vision of telling my story. Being able to make a difference in the world.

For a few years I thought my story would be of traveling solo, and my experiences as a soloventurer. How I would share about all the places I went while being stationed in Germany.

But as I continued to write for fun, I realized a more important story needing to be shared by me. A story of grief. Grief of a life I had planned to have. Grief of a healthy marriage. Grief of a literal life altogether. The toll addiction places on a family, and the closure that can come with time.

On July 10th, 2021 I’ll be pre-releasing the first chapter of a book I’ve been working on.

I share about my story. My own darkness within, but also that of my late husband.

My hope is that it leaves you with a new perspective on addiction and forgiveness. Maybe it’ll bring the push you needed to make a change in your own life, or showing more empathy towards those that surround you. I hope this book, a piece of my story, makes an impact in your life for the better.

UPDATE [Nov 19, 2021] The physical copy design is getting finalized with the print lab. All orders will be receiving email updates about the process. I appreciate your patience along this very first experience with self-publishing! Follow my social media @fromgrieftogold for the most recent updates!

A Series of Flashbacks:

Darkness Within

by Melissa Anne

I’ll be pre-releasing a chapter on July 10th, 2021.

That marks the three year deathversary.

Pre-orders begin Jul 10th.

If you’re able to support, I appreciate it immensely.
 
If you aren’t able, a quick re-share and a request for others to re-share would also be wonderful.
 

My goal is $3200 to help me pay for the ISBN, preorder of physical copies, paying for an editor, and help towards bills as I finish everything up.

For those able to donate $40 or more, I’ll send a physical copy with a personalized note once the books are printed as a huge thank you.

You can make the donation private, just add your email so I can reach out to get a good address to mail it to.

Your support means the world to me.

much love,

Melissa Anne
