My dear Cyber Family…

A dear friend of mine, Ani Manjikian, passed away on Sunday. I never met her face to face, but she was one of my best friends. We spoke every day. She knew my children. I know her dogs, her friends, her dreams, her stresses, and fears. Her passing has brought a few lessons to the light.

I was unable to get in touch with her family. I was completely and totally cut off from her life in Washington State.
I couldn’t get a hold of her books and WIP’s to protect them. Some families will just throw the books away. I was terrified Ani’s family was that family.
Ani’s sister took it upon herself to call all of Ani’s contacts. I happened to be one of them. But what if she hadn’t called? What if I hadn't exchanged phone numbers with Ani years ago?
Fortunately, Ani’s sister is as eager to preserve her work as I am. She doesn’t know how. I do. Imagine if she never called me.


I knew Ani had cancer. I knew the cancer had infected all of her major organs. My last conversation with Ani was wonderful. Ani was perky, spirited, hopeful, and determined to kick Cancer's ass again. She was so optimistic that I believed she would win this battle. It never occurred to me otherwise.

Monday, two days after Ani passed away, my husband had a severe car accident. He’s okay. The car isn’t. I sat in the hospital for eight hours yesterday thinking. Whether its cancer or sudden car accidents, we just don’t know when. Sometimes we’re lucky. Sometimes we’re not.

Please take a moment today, and leave a way for your family to contact your Cyber family. Leave directions as to what you want done with your books/writing/websites. I know families who just junked it.
Leave a way for your Cyber family to contact your real-world family.

Tim, Josh, Joe, Karina, Anita, Richard…Cinders, Matt, Adam, Kylie, Stani…and everyone else out there who I love and didn’t mention in this email, if you die tomorrow, I won’t know unless someone in your family is able and decides to reach out to me despite their grief and funeral arrangements. Think about what will happen to your books and your writing when you pass. Think about your websites, your blogs, everything.
Your Facebook page will always be there, no matter what. Facebook purposely leaves every Facebook page posted as a shrine online to every Facebook member. So you know.

Ani left no instruction because we didn’t think of it. It never occurred to us. In hindsight, I see the potentially devastating problem. I got lucky. Today, I am making preparations so, if something happens to me, you will all be contacted. I will also be seeking out “Name Holders:” People who will have contact to my family in case they don’t hear from me after a long stretch of time. Cindy, Adam, Tim, Joe…I’ll be reaching out to you. People who need to hear this news first hand.

In Ani’s name and memory, Brain to Books is launching a program we are calling, "Ani's Dream, that features the writings, websites, and books of Brain to Books members who have passed. We will market the books of those who are no longer with us and carry on the torch for Ani.

Also, we would like to help the family's of authors who need to reach out and contact the Cyber Family of a loved one about someone’s passing. I’d like to create a phone tree so families can call Brain to Books with the news, and we take care of the rest. Very little hurts more than having to say, "My sister/brother/mother father/daughter/son has passed" over and over and over.

Just to give you an idea how sticky this is, Ani lived in Washington state. Her sister lives in California. I am in New York and have friends in Greece, Japan, the UK, Alaska, North Carolina, Israel, Canada, and Australia just to name a few places.

We are offering this service free to our members. If this is something you are interested in, let us know. We’d like to see how many people are interested before diving into this.

In case I haven’t said it lately, I love you. You have all meant so very much to me although I’ve never hugged you, met you, or sat down with you face to face at a Starbucks.

For those who are new to Brain to Books, we have an open heart here and you’ll soon find a family among us.

May the kindest of words always find you.
Warm wishes, warm hearts.

The Letters is back in Part #3 "With You"! This stand alone #Macabre #romance picks up right where Part 2# left off.

"Death thrives on pain and grief. She needs it to survive. This is why she kills and so eagerly rips loved ones apart. She needs the grief to feed.

To live unloved while you watch me live and watch me love without you. This was her true price. But, unable to live without me, you loved me. And in my bed, your deal was broken. Death would never forgive.

This time there would be no goodbye. No letter. No warning. No 'the last time.' I woke to a life that would force me to relive my death each night. That would be the grief she eats."

And Death it calls as the stone crow breaks. Streaks of blood malform its face.
Death becomes its withered eyes and the shadows whisper, "Lies."

When young journalist William seeks out Elizabeth, an acclaimed author, in hopes to write her biography, the recluse grants him twenty-four hours to hear her story. What unfolds are a wide range of traumas that teeter on the edge of macabre and psychological thriller.

While toggling the lines of insanity, Elizabeth examines her neglect, rape, abuse, torture, and pedophilia-filled past. The more Elizabeth delves into her psyche, the more William witnesses the multiple mental conditions Elizabeth has developed to cope with a life without love, comfort, protection, trust, physical human contact, affection, therapy, or medication.
