Today is the official publication day for Braving the Fire (although I got to sign a bunch last night at the Atlanta Press Club holiday authors party!). Turn to today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution for a Q&A with me about how to get started writing, tips for writing about tough times during the holidays, and yes, a snarky remark about one of my elementary school journals. Pick up your copy of today's paper, or look for the story online at ajc.com.

About Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief and Loss
Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief and Loss is the first book to provide a road map for the journey of writing honestly about grief and loss. Created specifically by and for the writer who has experienced illness, loss, or the death of a loved one, Braving the Fire takes the writersâ€™ perspective in exploring the challenges and rewards for the writer who has chosen, with courage and candor, to be the memory keeper. It will be useful to the memoirist just starting out, as well as those already in the throes of coming to terms with complicated emotions and the challenges of shaping a compelling, coherent true story.
Loosely organized around the familiar KÃ¼bler-Ross model of Five Stages of Grief, Braving the Fire uses these stages to help the reader and writer though the emotional and writing tasks before them, incorporating interviews and excerpts from other treasured writers whoâ€™ve done the same. Insightful contributions from some of the masters of the genre are skillfully bended with Handler's own approaches to facing grief a second time in order to write about it. Each section also includes advice and wisdom from doctors and therapists about the physical experience of grieving.
Handler is a compassionate guide who has braved the fire herself, and delivers practical and inspirational direction throughout.
