SEATTLE - Nov. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- AlyBlue Media announced today that "Grief Diaries: Shattered" is now available on Amazon and will soon be in more than 40,000 retail outlets around the world. The anthology is the 17th title in the popular Grief Diaries book series created by Lynda Cheldelin Fell, an award-winning author and board president of National Grief & Hope Coalition.

Authored by Cheldelin Fell along with Bill and Julie Downs, founders of AVIDD - Advocates for Victims of Impaired/Distracted Driving, the book features 25 powerful stories that expose the true aftermath of a crime that claims the lives of innocent people and catapults the devastated families into long legal journeys that rarely yield sufficient justice. Desiring to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, each writer shares the days leading up to — and the haunting life beyond — the tragic moment their lives were shattered by an impaired driver's choice to get behind the wheel.

"According to the CDC, an average of 28 people in the United States die every day in a crash involving an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 53 minutes that was fully preventable," said Cheldelin Fell. "The anthology reveals the candid truth about the journey each victim's family faces. It's my hope that these stories will bring greater awareness, help families have meaningful discussions around this important topic, and encourage those struggling with alcoholism and addiction to seek treatment and support before it's too late."

Since Cheldelin Fell published the first 8 books last December through AlyBlue Media, her own publishing company named after her late daughter, the Grief Diaries series has grown to nearly 500 writers in 11 countries in just 10 months.

The series tackle a wide spectrum of relevant topics including alcoholism, eating disorders, mental illness, endometriosis, rape, divorce, homelessness, bullying and more. The series has earned acclaim from some of the world's most notable experts, influencers and organizations, including Dr. Bernice A King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Candace Lightner, founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Cheldelin Fell donates a portion of retail profits from every book to nonprofit organizations. For more information about Grief Diaries and to purchase "Grief Diaries: Shattered," visit or For more about Lynda Cheldelin Fell, visit
