Behind The Scenes2

I’m thrilled to have Elizabeth Hein with me today for this edition of Behind The Scenes. Her latest novel, How to Climb the Eiffel Tower, follows the journey of Lara as she goes through cancer treatment, and in the process, learns how to live.

1. Tell us a bit about your writing journey. How did you get started, and how did you get to where you are now?

Before I ever sat down at my keyboard to write, I was a reader. I was that little girl that always had a book in her hand. It wasn’t until I had lived a little that I considered sharing the stories in my head with the world. When I first sat down to write, I intended to put together a series of essays based on my experiences as a cancer patient. It was awful – dry, maudlin, a bit academic…

Radio Tour

It’s been an exciting few weeks since How To Climb The Eiffel Tower was released. I have been doing a radio tour talking to people about the book and cancer survivorship. If you are in the Colorado, Washington, New York, or Kentucky areas, tune in and listen to the conversations. Some of the radio stations I spoke to last week have archive feeds, which I have included.

Launch party and updates

We had a lovely time at the launch party for How To Climb The Eiffel Tower.

I was overjoyed that we had such a nice crowd for a short reading and question and answer period. After the months of  preparation, it was great to finally be able to talk with people about the book. The folks at our local Barnes & Noble were extremely gracious and even found more chairs when we ran out. Thanks, Val.

Book blurb:

Lara Blaine believes that she can hide from her past by clinging to a rigid routine of work and exercise. She endures her self-imposed isolation until a cancer diagnosis cracks her hard exterior. Lara’s journey through cancer treatment should be the worst year of her life. Instead, it is the year that she learns how to live. She befriends Jane, another cancer patient who teaches her how to be powerful even in the face of death. Accepting help from the people around her allows Lara to confront the past and discover that she is not alone in the world. With the support of her new friends, Lara gains the courage to love and embrace life. Like climbing the Eiffel Tower, the year Lara meets Jane is tough, painful, and totally worth it.
