Our Next Book — A Memoir by Cinthia Ritchie

We’re proud to announce that the next book in our pipeline is a stunning, heartbreaking memoir by former journalist Cinthia Ritchie. On her blog, Cinthia recently described the fourteen-year journey her book has taken from its first words to a publication deal that fell through and then, finally, to our submission queue. Here’s an excerpt:


“Fifteen years ago, my sister died due to complications from an eating disorder. She was driving a taxi down in Florida at the time, and she was wearing a pink shirt, and the taxi passengers told us that she swerved over to the side of the road when the heart attack pains began. They said that she saved their lives.


At that point, she weighed about 100 pounds. Often she was thinner than that. Often her bones stuck out from her skin, her neck so thin it seemed impossible that it could support her head . . .


What do you do when your sister basically starves herself to death? How do you process it?


I felt as if I had no choice but to write about it . . . I bled words across the paper, I bled it all out, every single ugly and beautiful moment, and then weaved it all together until I had a story . . .


More years passed. The man who abused both my sister and me died, and slowly I repaired my relationship with my mother. I came to terms with everything that had happened . . .”¬†

We aim to share this necessary book with the world in November.
