The Power of Three

You know how they say that good things come in threes, well it was certainly true for me last week. Three new books in as many days, three totally delightful books that I just have to tell you about. Am I lucky or what?

1.The first book came via Joss Burnel, a poet/blogger I met through WordPress a few years backDSC06655 when she showed up at a craft fair in the Annapolis Valley to meet me with a copy of her book of poetry, If God Was a Woman. I’m truly looking forward to reading this as I’m sure Joss (the Crowing Crone) has many insights to share. She has such a warm, friendly spirit I believe we could have talked all afternoon and not run out of words to say. What a thrill to meet a blogging buddy. I might be a little partial, as well, since Joss gave my book, Flying With a Broken Wing, a ringing endorsement in her review a few years back. You can check it out  HERE if you missed it. When I said she was a warm friendly spirit I certainly meant it!

2.From the Heart is an anthology that I’m a part of. It is the third anthology in the Inspiring Hope series. As with the other two books, Inspiring Hope: One story at a Time, and Fly Like an Eagle, the proceeds from this book will also go to charity. Profits from this latest book compiled by Gary Doi will go to the Cmolik Foundation. The foundation “supports post-secondary scholarships for high school graduates who are financially challenged and have demonstrated character, good work ethic and persistence in achieving their goals.” How about that! The books are available for order through Amazon just follow the link here I like knowing the profits will go to charity!

3. And last but not least, I was totally excited when an unexpected package from Diane Tibert came in the mail. The book is titled Throw Away Kitten and was penned by Candy McMudd. a.ka. Diane Tibert. As I told Diane over email, this book is my new favourite and not only because I’m mentioned on page 42 (yes, I’m totally serious. She mentioned me in the book. Cool or what!))  It’s a story for kids 6-11 and I can hardly wait to share this with Miss Charlotte. But I’ll keep the surprise of her nanny’s name being mentioned in the book until she finds it herself. I wonder what her reaction will be. You can order Diane’s book here. 

I hope you’ll check out some or all of these books. I tend to think they’re all pretty special, after all, they have the power of three behind them!

  1. Three new books is always good! I´m pleased to see we are in yet another anthology together. My copy is at my son´s place but he says it is very good. I´ll see it next time I´m in Alberta. Miss Charlotte will love Throw Away Kitten. Just wait till she sees your name in it!

    • I agree, Darlene. You can’t go wrong with book! From the heart is a very beautiful book, and yes, we just seem to keep bumping into each other in these anthologies.

  2. I was wondering where you’ve been – the wreath factory? Sounds like you had a great week, book-wise! December 5th will be here before we know it (think that’s the date?)

  3. All three of those books sound special and so significant to you in different ways. I enjoyed reading about each one.

  4. A great-sounding threesome! And how cool to have your name in one of them and a contribution in another. 🙂

    • Yes, it certainly was cool to see my name. Diane had told there was a surprise in the book, but didn’t tell me what it was. A bit strange to come across it, but a very good kind of strange. 😀

    • Those kind words came very easy, and I can’t begin to tell you how touched I was that you came all that way so we could meet. It was certainly a highlight for me! 😀 Enjoy your trip to Equator. I’ll be thinking of you this winter when we’re buried in snow. 😉

  6. Every time I read your name in my book, I giggled. Not because it was funny–though a goat running free in the house might be funny to look back on–but because I couldn’t wait to share it with readers. It was a giddy, excited giggle.

    I love spreading the news about local authors, particularly if I enjoyed their books, and I enjoyed both of yours.

    Thanks for sharing the news about my book.

    PS: The kitten on the cover was drawn in pastel by my daughter. I believe she created it when she was 14 years old.

    • I agree with you, Diane, about spreading the word about the works of other authors. And again, I thank you for telling others about my books. I wondered about the cover. I love it. Your daughter did a marvelous job. She must be so proud to have her art on the cover of her mama’s book! Great job!

      • I’m very proud to have the kitten art on my cover; when I asked my daughter, you know what a 14-year-old will say when she’s saving for a goat or pony: Do I get paid? lol
