And another new release . . . Mom Can't Live Alone Anymore

I've been very busy lately . . . writing my heart out.  This latest is timely, with so many women in the sandwich generation--taking care of their kids AND their elderly parents.  I hope it'll strike a chord with lots of readers who are going through--or have gone through--the same situation.

Here's a brief description:

Kathy Wilson was a loving daughter and wanted to do the right thing when it became apparent that her mother wasn’t able to take care of herself any more.  But getting her mom into assisted living became a nightmare--and that was just the beginning of her troubles.

I hope you'll give this story a try.

You can find it on:  Kindle  --  Nook  --  Smashwords

(Later it will be available on Sony eReader, Kobo, and Diesel.)

P.S.  There's already a five star review on Smashwords.  It says:

This is an excellent read, poignant and demonstrates a reality that we all may need to face at some point in our lives. Tonya Thomas delivers a true to life event. It sent me back in time to when my sister and I tried to convince our parents (into their 80's) to go into an assisted living facility. Instead they opted to stay in their home, which turned out to be a nightmare for all concerned. Eventually they both needed full time nursing home care and passed on within two months of each other's deaths.

This is a definite read for anyone having to deal with this type of situation re their elderly parents. Scary thing is I'm not there yet, but it won't be that long when I am.
