San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

“’Freda’s Flight’ is a tender, lovingly crafted book that handles the topic of death with care, fostering understanding and promoting healing. It encourages its readers to face their grief with bravery and the promise of brighter days ahead. It is a heartfelt, beautiful story that will be a valuable addition to any child’s library, providing comfort and hope during times of loss. I highly recommend it.” (CJ Williams)

This year’s Guadalajara International Book Fair is the largest and most anticipated book fair in the Americas. Here, publishers from around the world will be exhibiting thousands of books by new authors who are eager to share their first literary projects. Many of these authors come from a wide range of backgrounds, such as college librarian Gayla Cloud. She is the author of “Freda’s Flight,” a heartwarming children’s book that talks about loss and how kids can process grief.

The Guadalajara International Book Fair, also known as Feria Internacíonal del Libro de Guadalajara (FIL), is regarded as the largest book fair in the Americas and the most important cultural event in the Spanish-speaking world. The book fair has been offering many first-time authors an opportunity to showcase their projects to new readers.

Many of these authors come from various backgrounds, with their work serving as a way to share their personal experiences, ideas, and lessons.

Gayla Cloud is one of these writers. Earlier in June this year, she published “Freda’s Flight,” a very special children’s book on how to trek through grief with hope. One reviewer said of the book: “The portrayal of Megan’s journey through grief is realistic and relatable, yet it’s imbued with an optimism that gives readers of all ages a beacon of light to hold onto…” (CJ Williams, author of multiple books on Amazon).

The story itself is simple enough. It is about a girl named Megan who has just lost her cat, Freda. Naturally, she’s very upset and misses her furbaby. The good news is that her friends and family are still there to support her through her loss. With her friends, she imagines what her cat is doing on the other side and what heaven might be like. She realizes she will be with Freda again.

Cloud has confidence that the book will prompt positive discussions about how to handle loss and claim hope of a glorious afterlife and reunion with lost loved ones. She herself is no stranger to loss and neither is the book’s illustrator Juliet Frost. Cloud has experienced the loss of two of her own daughters (even prompting her to adopt). Meanwhile, Frost hails from war-ridden Ukraine and is just as eager to contribute so that readers can learn to survive grief.

Readers can check out Gayla Cloud’s “Freda’s Flight” at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2023 Guadalajara International Book Fair at booth #GG38 on November 25-29, 2023. The book fair will occur at the Expo Guadalajara, Av. Juárez No. 976, Colonia Centro, C.P. 44100, Guadalajara, Jalisco, México, and will run from November 25 to December 3, 2023. The book is available on Amazon.
