A Thousand Sleepless Nights, The Darlington Society

A Note From Mike Dellosso on The Darlington Society

From Mike Dellosso’s blog . . .

John Donne wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself.”

That’s true even of writers. I need help and support, wisdom, suggestions. I need prayer and encouragement and, occasionally, rebuking. I fully realize that if I’m going to succeed at this writing thing I’m not going to do it alone. The road is too rough and sometimes the walking too lonely.

That’s why I started The Darlington Society. The Society is a group of volunteers who agree to support me in my writing in a variety of ways. Those ways include promoting via social networks, book reviews, word-of-mouth marketing, but also encouragement and prayer and yes, even correction. I need that too.

In return, the members of the Society receive an advanced reader’s copy of my next novel (A Thousand Sleepless Nights under my pen name Michael King), special deals on my books, first dibs on upcoming news and events, and an insider’s look at the whole writing and publishing process.

Will you please consider joining the Society? I’m only taking 30 members this time around and TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO THROW YOUR HAT IN THE MIX. Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered. The Society members will be announced on Friday.

For all the information about the Society, go to the official Darlington Society page and read over it.

I look forward to getting to know some of you better!

  1. Yes, I know I already entered this on Monday, but just a comment. You would get an honest opinion from someone the age of your parents, and I would correct you. Although I am not one to go to church, being honest here, I do and do every day, talk to God and pray so I assume he is listening to me as well. Our family has gone through many adversities with our two sons, inc mental problems, crohns disease, depression, ocd, addiction to pain meds. So I am aware of what can and does go wrong in life. Pat

What readers are saying about A THOUSAND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS . . .

I have not been so deeply and utterly moved by a book in a very long time. A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a powerful and gripping novel that moved me greatly.
--Susan S.

A Thousand Sleeples Nights left me speechless as my heart and mind reconciled dealing with the trauma of cancer and a lifetime of regrets and finding God in the midst of it all. Sometimes a diagnosis of cancer can be God’s redemption.
--Jill J.

An emotionally steeped blessing of a story. One that pulled at my heart with one hand while holding a convicting mirror in the other.
--John U.

Great job. I hope and pray this book does for others what it did for me.
--Terri C.

I read A Thousand Sleepless Nights twice because it was that good. A very emotional story of a dysfunctional family, cancer, redemption and healing.
--Pat R.

I can really see how [this book] will be a blessing to many who have to face the devestation of cancer and loss.
--Tina H.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights will tug at your deepest emotions as it unfolds the evil of cancer and the power of relationships. The characters are endearing, real and relatable, as is the true battles they fight: illness, apathy, love, commitment and balancing life. King's novel strikes a vein, and sends hope to the heart of the matter--a fine read for anyone in need of healing.
--Donnalynn D.

This is a stirring novel that paints a great picture of cancer and its effects on not only those who have it, but their families and friends.
--Mark B.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights moved me so deeply I could not leave it alone until I’d read it completely. This bittersweet tale of illness--both physical and emotional--and the way lives are ultimately changed by its effects makes it a story for everyone, especially for those struggling to find forgiveness and healing.
--Claudette W.

A Thousand Sleepless Nights is a novel that touches you on a deep emotional level. It is a beautiful story about surviving, suffering, and what the true meaning of love is and how cancer, while devastating, can pull together a family torn apart by a past of neglect. A beautiful masterpiece!
--Joshua R.
