Happy Easter & Book Birthday

Happy Easter! I hope that you are having a restful long weekend.

This time of year is special to me for another reason as well… Expecting Sunshine turns 2!

I’m a proud book mama to my book baby! Two years ago I published Expecting Sunshine: A Journey of Grief, Healing, and Pregnancy After Loss. It was a big heart-job to write, and an adventure to publish, but the book has made a big difference ever since. I am grateful!


Expecting Sunshine, First Edition


On May 21st the second edition of Expecting Sunshine will be released! Here’s what readers have in store:

What’s new in the Second Edition of Expecting Sunshine:

  • Bonus chapter co-written by the author, Alexis Marie Chute, and her husband, Aaron Chute, through his perspective. A truly valuable reflection on the difference between male and female grief, and how partners mourn and heal uniquely.
  • Group discussion questions. Perfect for support groups and book clubs.
  • Author Q&A about Alexis Marie Chute’s journey of loss, healing, writing Expecting Sunshine book, and producing Expecting Sunshine documentary film. This Q&A gives new insight into the behind-the-scenes.
  • 10 Pages of support resources!
  • And of course, the award-winning bestselling memoir by Alexis Marie Chute
