Book Cover Revealed!

Book cover revealed!
I’m so excited to show off the cover for “From Tears to Triumph, My Journey to The House of Hope.” The cover was designed by illustrator, Yoko Matsu, and the typography was created by Sam Duncan. I highly recommend both of these young ladies.

The back cover reads:

 During the summer of 1970, nineteen-year-old Linda stops on the way home from work to talk to a tall, handsome stranger on a San Francisco street corner. That chance meeting changes the course of her life. Linda’s compassionate, gripping, and soul-searching memoir tells the story of her remarkable journey from crushed dreams to the creation of a house of Hope.
Her desperate cry for help brings a spiritual awakening, a two-year life-molding adventure with the controversial Children of God commune, and her decision to escape.
By the age of twenty-two, disillusioned but not defeated, Linda follows a tug on her heart and a voice in her head and moves to Costa Rica, where with faith, defiance, and courage she advocates for runaways, street girls and underage prostitutes.  Read her story of tears turned to triumph.

From Tears to Triumph will be published (Lord willing and the creeks don’t rise) this summer, by Mariah Publishing.
     The book will be available:
From my website: www.lindabelloruiz.com,
At Mariah Publishing: www.mariahpublishing.com,
On Amazon and Barnes and Noble (including e-reading downloads)
Through emailing me: lmbelloruiz@yahoo.com
I will let you know when it’s ready . . . so excited!

    What do you think? Do you like it? Do you have questions? Those of you who have been following my writing journey know that it's been THREE YEARS since I set out to put my story on paper. I'm so glad to see the finish line straight ahead!
