“PERFECTLY NEGATIVE: HOW I LEARNED TO EMBRACE LIFE’S LEMONS LESSONS is what is known as ‘unputdownable’ in the book publishing industry … It’s like sitting down with a best friend and catching up on the latest news—before one knows it two hours have passed and there’s still more to discuss.” ~ Judge, 24th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

Perfectly Negative
By Linda Carvelli


My first book, Perfectly Negative, is an inspirational story of love, loss, and resilience. 
Perfectly Negative opens with me focusing on the start of my first marriage until I receive the devastating news of my mother’s terminal illness.  The avalanche of tragedy that plagued me and my family for the next ten years is remarkable. What will inspire you is how I resolved the most painful decade of my life when I realized how each tragedy gave me more courage and strength to face the next one...and the next one...
Perfectly Negative introduces a cast of real, relatable characters who will have you crying, laughing, and ultimately rejoicing in my triumph and determination to make sense of the overwhelming heartbreak I endured. My insightful memoir reveals nuggets of wisdom to reassure you as you face your own life lemons/lessons.
