Be on the lookout for Story Pie Press' next release, Samson's Tale...coming April 2011.  This book will make your heart leap and bounce and soar.

Here's what Alison Clarke, Founder of Flashes of Hope, had to say:  "Through the eyes of the loyal family dog, children will understand what it's like for kids to deal with cancer. Filled with warmth and compassion, the story is both informative and inspiring. This book is a treasure for children with cancer, their classmates, friends and family."

In case you're curious, Flashes of Hope is a nonprofit organization that "changes the way children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses see themselves through the gift of photography and raises money for pediatric cancer research."  Portions of the proceeds from Samson's Tale support Flashes of Hope in their efforts to bring comfort and joy to these amazing children.  Carla Mooney, the talented author of Samson's Tale, happens to be the Pittsburg Chapter Director.  Mooney is a prolific author who found inspiration for this story in her own son, a young hero who has endured leukemia.  

A book launch is being planned as we speak, and will likely take place in a couple of locations: Chicago, Pennsylvania, and possibly Washington, DC.  If you are in one of these areas, or plan to visit this spring, stay tuned as more information will be posted shortly.
