Here’s a message from her family, posted on Susan’s Facebook page:

A note from Lisa, Two Roads Publisher

It was an absolute privilege to meet Susan and work with her on her amazing book. She was one of the most joyful and honest people I have ever met, with an enormous sense of fun and an utterly beautiful smile.

Susan was completely thrilled by what was happening with her book worldwide and so interested in

people and events around her. She took everything that life had to offer and made every second count – right to the end I’m sure.

Our thoughts go out to her wonderful husband and family at this time.

Hi Everyone!

A month has passed since our last Monday Blues Remedy and a lot has happened in the meantime: we celebrated our birthday (pictures attached!); we published some great books; and we received some very exciting updates on our forthcoming publications. So put your kettle on and forget about the biting cold outside (what happened to spring?!)…

BOOK NEWS!

Doodlemum – OUT NOW!

The lovely book from our favourite artist/writer/mum was published on February 28th. You might have seen the beautiful centre-spread Day in the Life of feature in Guardian Family, complete with Doodlemum’s pictures and an interview by Patrick Barkham; if not, don’t worry: you can still catch it online. Read the interview here and see the exclusive Guardian slideshow of original Doodlemum art here.

We ran a Doodlemum-centred Mother’s Day competition where we asked our readers to post their own doodles on our Facebook page and this is just one of the entries:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quite something uh? Fede contributed his own drawing which received some mixed in-house reviews:

 

 

 

 

 

Also, the Daily Mail run a beautiful feature with the catchy headline ‘Doodles with oodles of love’. A little preview:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a link to the online article on the Mail Online.

 

Until I Say Good-Bye (out on March 14th)

As publication date is getting near, Susan’s story is getting a lot of interest both here and on the other side of the Atlantic. Have a look at the Sunday Telegraph piece, complete with wonderful pictures:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even more pics on the Mail online page here.

Plus, a very rare and quite intense interview with Susan herself is up on NPR. Since ALS affects the muscles in the body, Susan’s ability to talk has quickly deteriorated in the past few month, which is why hearing her voice feels so special.

Finally, here’s Good Housekeeping’s take on Susan’s memoir:

You might worry that a memoir about living with a terminal disease could be too upsetting. Instead, in Susan Spencer Wendel’s hands it is both life-enhancing and inspiring. In UNTIL I SAY GOOD-BYE she chronicles her last year of adventures as she wrings every ounce of joy out of her remaining months.

As always do keep up to date with all things Susan on her Facebook page (over 3000 Likes now), and remember to grab a copy of the Guardian next Saturday and have a close look at the cover of the Family section…

 

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald (out April 11th)

Lots of updates on Therese’s Facebook page as publication gets near (only one month to go!). Gatsby mania is building fast: we have posted The Bookseller’s feature on all things Gatsby/Fitzgerald (complete with an interview to Lisa about Z) on our Facebook page; plus the April Vogue issue is just out, complete with an article on Zelda and an interview with Therese. Go grab your copy now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Export copies are in and our beautiful hardbacks are due this week: exciting!

 

The Still Point of the Turning World (out April 11th)

Emily’s son Ronan, who was suffering from Tay-Sachs, died recently – just before his third birthday. Emily talked about him and about her experience as a grieving mum in her emotional interview on the Today show last Friday. Take a look here.

The book is receiving great pre-publication reviews and is, quite literally, the talk of the town in the US, with an interview and excerpt running in the Huffington Post; a magnificent review in the Boston Globe and two more interviews with Bodega magazine and Bookslut blog.

To learn more about Tay-Sachs and to raise awareness please visit the American National Tay-Sachs and Allied Diseases Association at http://www.ntsad.org/

 

Eleven Days (out June 20th)

There’s no stopping Lea Carpenter’s book from becoming the literary debut of the year. We now have a quote from one of the Greats of American literature, Toni Morrison:

A compelling story made memorable by the strength of its elegant prose

And our lovely cover is going live this week:

A big thank you to all our followers and friends for the heart-warming birthday wishes!

We are proud to announce a new acquisition for our spring list, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE: My Year of Living With Joy by Susan Spencer-Wendel with Bret Witter.

Susan and her husband John during a 'mango party' at their Florida home

Diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in 2011, journalist and mother of three, Susan Spencer-Wendel was determined to make every day count with her friends and family. And, as a writer, her response is to write about it, with the support of Bret Witter, of DEWEY fame.

Described as THE LAST LECTURE for women, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE is both the story of Susan’s determination to make the most of these final days and a series of inspirational reflections. Her end-of-life bucket list has taken her, so far, to the Yukon to see the northern lights; Northern

California to see her birth mother; Budapest, where she and her husband spent the first two years of their marriage; Cyprus, to connect with her birth father’s family; and New York with her 14-year-old daughter to visit a bridal shop . . . for a future moment she can never share.

Lisa met Susan when she was in London, recently, and listened to Susan’s husband, John, reading out a moving extract from the book. Because of the progression of her illness, Susan’s now writing it all on her iPhone. But her skills as a writer are unimpaired, and her spirit, feisty humour and love of life shine through on every page.

This is a very special project – moving and inspirational – and we’re thrilled to be Susan’s publisher, along with seventeen other publishers around the world. Like THE LAST LECTURE and TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE is sure to touch people and remind them what matters in life, however long or short the time we have.

‘I’m glad people are moved. I’m happy {to} have stumbled, accidently, on something that crystallizes what it means to be a family, to grow up, to dream, to die, but more importantly to live fully and joyfully.’ Susan Spencer-Wendel
