I've learned a couple things through this search. First, unless I know the name of the independent bookstore in your area, it might not show on my Google search. And second, there are cafés and other places that might encourage book signings yet unless I know their exact name, it doesn't show either.
Instead of banging my head on the wall or giving up I had an idea. I know there are many of you following the blog from across New York State and beyond. The reason Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey is only available in print from on April third at the River's End Bookstore is because I want to meet as many of my readers as possible.
After April third though, I would love to deliver books to other bookstores so it can be available in your area too. In order to do this, I need to hear from you. If you have a church, library, bookstore, cafe', coffee house, book nook, art center, or other establishments that host book signings and author visits, will you share their information with me?
If you leave their name, address, phone, and email ~ I will mail contact them to see if there is a way we could set up a time for me to visit for a book signing or if they would be interested in carrying the books for sale. I may not be able to reach all your suggestions but I will do my best to. Thanks for helping me find you...
April is filling quickly but May and June is warm and full of sunshine so we can keep the momentum of Where's Heidi?'s release going.
In 1994, my only sister was abducted while working alone at a local convenience store. The book opens with an early morning phone call then details the emotions, grief, and confusion felt in those first moments while transitioning through the days, months, and years to follow.
A sibling's journey is different from that of a parent. Our role and feelings cannot compare yet they are just as important. Parents experience the greatest loss of their lives through the loss of their child. The emotional loss of the missing child’s siblings, has a similar and traumatic effect in their lives too.
I lost more than my sister on April 3, 1994 I lost my faith. Thanks to the bold faith of one child I have hope and a story to share. There is no one person or thing here on earth to replace Heidi or the friendship we had together yet after ten years of searching, I realized there is Someone who can, God.
“Mrs. Buske, you need Jesus.” Words that changed my life for the better.
My name is Lisa M. Buske and Heidi Allen is my sister. She remains missing but never forgotten. Our journeys after loss may vary yet the pain, grief, and need for hope are similar. This is my story of discovery, healing, and hope from the moment I learn of Heidi’s kidnapping until today.
Life after loss is a rollercoaster ride of memories and emotions.

When the Waves Subside ~ There is Hope
Inspired by memories of time spent with my parents and sister along the shores of Lake Ontario.
Beneath the smooth stones of Lake Ontario are hidden treasures of glass ~ once broken shards, now transformed into beautiful rocks to treasure. Just like that glass, the parents of a missing child are broken and beaten against the rocks.
