“The Cancer Couple” by Mike & Barb Hutmacher

 

The Cancer Couple looks like a great book.  What can you tell us about it?

The Book answers lots of questions such as:

What was it like for Mike to accidentally learn that he had Stage 4 Melanoma? Why did it take one year to confirm his suspicion that his cancer was considered terminal? What happened when Barb developed Stage 3 breast cancer while Mike was battling Melanoma?

What were the effects of radiation, medication, surgery, chemo and immunotherapy treatments on them? What were the effects on their relationship? How did they tell their children and friends that they had cancer? What did cancer treatment cost?

So many books about personal cancer experiences focus on the introspection of how life has changed for them. However, they tend to ignore the intimate details of the treatment process that caused those changes to body, mind, and spirit. From the punishment your body must endure to heal, to the intolerable doubts that can cloud your mind, this book provides a different perspective.

The book is a tribute to veterans of the war on cancer, whether they have won or lost their battles. It is also for the friends and family on the sidelines who provide support while appearing to be strong yet are deflated by the odds. It is for everyone to learn that you simply don’t want to be one of the millions each year who develop this ugly disease.

This is how we choose to share our journeys. It’s our hope that readers will find value in our stories. For those who are just beginning their journey, we wish them the absolute best!

That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us about it?

We didn’t want a cover that illustrated doom and gloom. Therefore, we chose a photo of ourselves taken on a day when we both felt pretty good even though we were at the height of our treatment regimes.

What inspired the idea for the book?

So many books about personal cancer experiences focus on the introspection of how life has changed for them after suffering with cancer. However, they tend to ignore the intimate details of the treatment process that caused those changes to body, mind, and spirit. From the punishment your body must endure to heal, to the intolerable doubts that can cloud your mind, this book provides a different perspective.

The unique part of this expose is that both my wife, Barb, and myself developed cancer simultaneously. She was diagnosed six months after I was diagnosed. I was already in the midst of my battle when she began her battle.

Here are examples of what we address in the Book:

What was it like for Mike to accidentally learn that he had Stage 4 Melanoma? Why did it take one year to confirm his suspicion that his cancer was considered terminal? What happened when Barb developed Stage 3 breast cancer while Mike was battling Melanoma?

What were the effects of radiation, medication, surgery, chemo and immunotherapy treatments on them? What were the effects on our relationship? How did they tell their children and friends that they had cancer? What did cancer treatment cost?

How did you come up with the title for the book?

Since we both had cancer simultaneously, the Book needed a title that differentiated the other books that address how a couple deals with the situation when only one spouse has cancer, not both.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Cancer Couple?

I thought it appropriate to describe some of the technical medical issues of Melanoma and Breast Cancer. It was difficult to decipher complicated details, e.g., types of breast cancer and Melanoma, hormones, risk factors, prevention methods and many others. There are innumerable medical sources of valuable information on these cancers. However, they don’t all agree. It took a great deal of time to make sure I reported these details accurately.

What do you like to do when not writing?

Barb and myself are both retired from health care occupations but we both work part-time. We are avid golfers. We enjoy getting out on the links as often as we can.

Where can readers find out more about your work?

The Book is available on Amazon as an ebook (https://www.amazon.com/Cancer-Couple-Simultaneous-Treatment-challenges-ebook/dp/B0B4PV1YVY/ref=sr_1_1?crid=ICSLMRYY8YUO&keywords=the+cancer+couple&qid=1674235492&sprefix=the+cancer+couple%2Caps%2C290&sr=8-1) and on Barnes & Noble as a paperback and ebook (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-cancer-couple-mike-barb-hutmacher/1142119830?ean=9781639447466).

What scene or section did you have the most fun writing?

The Section entitled "Your Pet”. I thought it appropriate to describe how Buster reacted to both of us being sick. He knew something was wrong. It was fun trying to “see” us through his eyes.

No Subscription Required (Author Interview)

 


https://amzn.to/3H7bDAS

Can you tell us a little about No Subscription Required?

Discover the secrets they don't want you to know in this exclusive guide! With content removed from YouTube, it will show you how to access free apps that stream nearly everything you could want to watch on a Fire TV or Android streaming device. Start watching all your favorite TV content within minutes and save hundreds of dollars annually! This book will teach you how to optimize your streaming device, install third-party apps, stay legal, protect your privacy and prevent buffering issues. All you need is a TV with an HDMI input, WiFi, and a streaming device to get started.

What motivated you to write the book?

I set out to improve upon my debut book, "The Firestick Phenomenon," with the goal of completing it by the end of the last year. With nearly a decade of experience assisting individuals in transitioning away from cable television and towards alternative streaming options, I wanted to share my knowledge and insights in order to help others save money and make informed decisions about their entertainment choices.

What type of reader did you write the book for?

The book is written for readers who are looking to cut their cable cord and transition to alternative streaming options. It is aimed at individuals who are interested in saving money on their entertainment expenses and want to learn more about the different streaming devices and services available to them. The book is likely to be of particular interest to individuals who are tech-savvy and looking to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in entertainment.

How long did it take you to write No Subscription Required?

Overall about two or three months.

How did you come up with the title for the book?

I wanted something unique and catchy but easily understood on the subject matter, and No Subscription Required sounded appropriate considering the book content. I think it clearly describes the central topic of cord-cutting and transitioning to alternative streaming options. The title also highlights the main benefit of this transition, which is saving money by eliminating the need for costly cable subscriptions.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing No Subscription Required?

One of the biggest challenges I faced was ensuring that the content was up-to-date and relevant to the fast-paced industry of media streaming apps and devices. The field is constantly evolving, with new services and devices being introduced regularly. This made it difficult to keep up with the latest developments and make sure that the information presented in the book was accurate and relevant. I had to keep rewriting and updating sections of the book to make sure that I was providing readers with the most current information. It was a challenge to ensure that the content was always current but it was important to me to provide readers with the most accurate and relevant information.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I enjoy learning about a variety of subjects to keep my mind active and stimulated when I'm not writing. This involves doing coursework online, reading books and articles, and watching a variety of YouTube videos. I occasionally like to sneak away to the golf course if my workload allows. I also prefer to wake up next to some palm trees with a margarita nearby when I do manage to sneak away for longer than a golf outing, which is even more rare.

Where can readers find out more about your work?

Readers can visit my author pages on Amazon (https://rebrand.ly/acamazonauthor)and Goodreads (https://rebrand.ly/acgoodreads), and I’m in the process of setting up some websites to make books and other offers visible on Google and to raise awareness.

Happiness 2.0 (Author Interview)

 


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G73V6BW

Happiness 2.0  looks like a great book.  What can you tell us about it?

Yes, Happiness 2.0 is a great book. I wrote it in an effort to give readers a sense of real joy about their life and purpose, after reading it. This book in plain easy to understand writings, covers the secrets of happiness and how to easily attain it using everything that you already have, and some new proven life tips that you’re going to learn in it.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

No. Happiness 2.0 was not written with plans to turn it into a series.

 

What scene or section did you have the most fun writing?

I think writing the whole book was real fun. I also particularly enjoyed the ‘10 tips to ensure family happiness and success’ section. This is a very interesting and sometimes challenging balancing act. I think the readers are going to benefit from these 10 tips.

 

What inspired the idea for the book?

Helping people attain true happiness in every aspect of their life inspired me to write Happiness 2.0.

 

How did you come up with the title for the book?

Since my goal is to help the reader attain Happiness at no cost, coupled with the fact that the book covers many aspects of life, from relationships, work, to finding & developing your purpose and passion, I decided to name this book ‘HAPPINESS 2.0’

 

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Happiness 2.0?

Yes. The research on Happiness. The more I learn about what most people struggle with in their lives while trying to attain true happiness, the deeper I dived into my research, and the longer it took for me to be able to properly educate my readers on my findings, in an easy to understand way, and also not make this book too long or difficult to understand and practice the awesome tips I’m sharing.

 

What do you like to do when not writing?

I’m also a music producer, mixing & mastering engineer. I like building websites using wordpress, and making IOS & Android apps for the sites when I think it can be more helpful to the site users. If you’re a music lover, you can find my musical works on your favorite streaming App under the name BEAT MANE. (Hip hop, pop, Afro sound)

Poems About Love (Author Interview)


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BQJ1M4ML/

Poems About Love looks like a great book. What can you tell us about it?

Thank you. The aim of the book is to address a variety of modern situations - some good, some challenging, some happy, some sad and how that intertwines with falling in love, being in love and the challenges of breaking up with a partner.

Any plans to turn it into a series?
I'm waiting to see the reaction to this first collection but if it proves to be popular then yes.

What poem or section did you have the most fun writing?
Actually I enjoyed writing all of the poems. They were written during 2022 and very much depended upon my mood on any given day. Being in a relationship I find some days are better than others (and I'm sure my partner will say the same!)

What inspired the idea for the book?
There seemed to be a gap in the market to be honest. Obviously there are many books of poetry but not too many that have a contemporary view on the highs and lows of being in love.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Poems About Love?
Finding inspiration can be challenging and committing to the work. But otherwise, I found it an enjoyable experience.

What do you like to do when not writing?
I love reading, writing, travelling, walking our dog, good food and wine, time with friends and family.

American Slave (Author Interview)

 

 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09TRDKF7L/

American Slave looks like a great book.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I do a lot of historical research on the Wild West and in doing so I run across many interesting documents and books. While doing some research I found some writings from two gentlemen in particular that were born into slavery in the south and grew up in horrible conditions and then having hope after the emancipation proclamation and the south losing the Civil War there would be huge changes… there were on some levels but major prejudices still help the African Community down. The two men wrote their memories as old men hoping that the future would continue to be brighter but knew the road was still long a head of their community.

 

Any plans to turn it into a series?

I have been contemplating it. As long as I can stick with the humanity side of it and does not just become about the industry it was. I want to try and connect the dots of how the past has affected the current African American generations.

 

How long did it take you to write American SlaveThe research is the longest part of a book like this but start to finish it was about four months.

 

What inspired you when writing American Slave?

I believe the stories of brutality are most likely passed down in depth in the African American community, but in other races I believe it is taught on a surface level, at least it was when I was taught in in school. It was taught like – “Oh the slaves had it bad, really bad” – maybe they talked about being whipped or hangings a little and that was it. When I read these men’s stories it was worse than I imagined. The daily fear and hopelessness along with ridicule and torture is just so hard to comprehend. I think this awful blotch in American history needs to be comprehended and remember so we can become more companionate and understanding to what was robbed from our fellow Americans because of their skin color and what this generation and next generations can do to help make up for that loss.

 

Can you tell us a little about the people that contributed to the book?

The two authors were men who were born into slavery and both their families were split apart when the masters sold off their family members. They went through beatings, whippings, and humiliation. These are not handed down stories from some by standard, these are stories from the actual people affected – the slaves themselves.

 

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing American Slave?

Yes, what to trim down and blending the two writers stories. I wanted to honor them so there is very minimal editing. I wanted to make sure it was them talking from the past and more important that we feel their heart and it moves us to do something positive in this generation.

 

What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

I love to be in nature. I go out all over the Southwest with my family and friends and find old Indian ruins, mines, battlefields, ghost towns and graveyards. Also, love to hike and rockhound.

 

Where can readers find out more about your work?

Currently I only sell on Amazon but will expand to more channels in 2023.
