NEW READER

Barb_gc_bloss_crop

 

Love this picture of my new – and young – fan. As a former educator of VERY young children, I know how important it is to get them interested in books and reading early. With so much TV and internet access, even adults don’t read much anymore. Give me a good book – and a cutie pie like this – and I’m in heaven. Happy reading!

Writers have to write!

Going through the process of selling my first book has taught me a lot about writers. Mainly, writers don’t write for the money. I realized some of that earlier when I saw the percentage of sale price that goes to the author. But now watching people read my book and thinking of places I want BLOSSOM to go and be seen I’m asking “How do I get her into more people’s hands?” I see myself as the poor man standing on the corner with the sign “Need food”, but my sign says “I’m an author. Need to share my words. God Bless!”

Successful book launch

Much joy, fun, and inspiration at BLOSSOM’s BLOOMday and launch yesterday. She was literally BLOWN in with high winds, then rain, sunshine, even a few snowflakes, and then a rainbow that reflected off her pages for my guests to marvel at as I did a short reading. Today is a true spring day. All the “sound and fury” has passed, and life and nature have returned to normal. Just to verify all continues as it should, Mother Nature had 6 deer walk slowly through my backyard – the 1st image I saw as I opened my eyes. The Universe has an amazing and simple way of communicating that all is right with the world – if we stop to look around and notice.
