Hi everyone! Happy New Year. ! It’s been a great but busy start to 2012. Here’s an update:
You’ve been ‘Liking,’ reviewing and reading my books Where the Butterflies Go and Leap on Lulu, Amazon, iBooks, and now on the Nook! Can I tell you how exciting it is to see you finding these books in all these places? The Nook! The Nook! A little time was all it took 😉
Please please please review and rate the books after you read them – even one line and those little yellow stars or thumbs-up helps other readers decide if they should even just download a sample. Every little click helps.
I now have sound files of my poetry readings easily accessible on a page via my Facebook page. Please Check it out!

And if you didn’t catch my video clip of my Oct. 1st bookstore reading, here it is again:
HOSANNA CHILDREN’S HOME
‘The Groovy Granny’ has made its way to rural Kenya to a children’s home for orphaned and needy children. I learned about the Canadian charity Hearts for Change through my writing for the Queen’s Alumni Review magazine. It didn’t take long into my conversation with VP Jenny Caldwell to realize I wanted to donate some of the proceeds from book sales of Leap and Where the Butterflies Go to this incredible organization. I also sent them the book so that they could read it to the children when they visited before Christmas. Jenny sent me some photos from their visit just last week. Those children’s wide smiles are enough to convince me I need to write another rhyming children’s book soon!
THE CANADIAN LEAGUE OF POETS SHOW
In mid-December I was invited to read with other members of The League of Canadian Poets at a special benefit performance and party all rolled into one. It was so much fun, and besides, hubby and I had a great excuse to go out on a date before the show. Mmm…Thai Food 🙂 It was wonderful to see old writer friends and meet new ones. I’m hoping to use the same venue -Casa Del Popolo cafe-bar and performance space on Blvd. St. Laurent – for my launch party for Carry On Dancing in mid-April 2012. Stay tuned!
THE COUNT DOWN
Carry On Dancing will be out in March 2012! Not long now. I’m excited. Are you excited? We should get excited. Get up and dance!
Or, maybe just tell someone 🙂 or Tweet about my upcoming book release. There are links at the bottom of the page for sharing information about my publisher and my book and its early reviews with others on Facebook, Twitter, Linked IN, and more. That’d be swell 😉 Thanks so much!
Finally, thanks for being a regular reader of this blog. There’s a lot of traffic out there. I appreciate you crossing through it all to visit me.
