ROFLMAO....

Nan, sweetheart and dear lady....

if anyone can take a moment
and stand it on its head?

It is YOU!

Truly, I do wish to thank everyone who has sent an email and ordered up a book....

but you know what has been the most fun of it all?

Sharing.  Getting past the shy, and sharing.
Speaking up...and sharing some more.  In this venue, I have pointed
a few folk towards some positive aspects, and am in the [gleeful!]
middle of editing a children's book for a neighbor [not the final edit,
mind you, but just the beginning...]

and isn't THIS what its all about?

Oh, Ron!  Thank you!  For opening so many doors...

for forgiving so many trespasses....

and for answering so many [maybe not so] silly questions.

Nan?

I've got a few people waiting to see what magic YOU will wrought, as well!

My friends....

what a crew!

Congratulations! I hope it's a best seller.

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Last week has been a rough road...
first the highs...and then the lows.

And life, runs on...

For those of you who still wish to place an order through me, see my gift from Nan who worked hard on getting up my own web page...

Thank you, Nan!  Until better paid...

I've been sending out autographed copies right and left...

it is definitely making for a healing process,
just like my adopted sister would have wanted...

And for those of you who have ordered?

Read on...

and let me know your thoughts.

Love to all...

I shall be sending a check in the next few days K, along with warm hugs for those 'lows.'   And for you, a special treat, if I may? The check will arrive tucked inside a custom photo card from my daughter's new photography collection.

Dear Kacy...I am keeping all of my notes and cards, letters and such...so you can be sure I will be adding yours and your daughter's to my collection!  It will become a treasure!

As you can see, Nan has worked on the beginning of my website [Bless Her!] and if PayPal works better for you, please feel free to use it!

Personal sales are doing well, thank you...and amid the lows, life will soon bring me up high again.  Winter does that, you know...but a few clouds and raindrops here and there cannot put out the sunshine in our lives...

Thank you...

Just a note...

This has been so much fun...

and orders have been coming in quite well, thank you!

I have heard from several people, half-way through the novel, that they hope to get the book for others in time for Christmas gifts.  No problem...IF you get your order in on time.

I am very aware of postal lines [trust me, I see them about every day now!] but we can do this...

so, follow the link provided on page 1 and see the beautiful work that Nan has accomplished, and get your order in on time for the loved ones in your life.

Do make sure that if you are ordering for more than yourself, that you let me know the names of your recipients.  Email me personally, and I will send your gift directly to your friend or family member.  All I will need is their address.

Two highlights of this week:  One was from a woman who needed to quote a line from one of the poems in the book.  For a very special, albeit sorrowful reason.  I was humbled to let her have "the lines", as she called them.

The highlight of the sorrowful occasion was that those lines brought some shine to the tears of the recipients.  That is what sharing is all about.

The other highlight of the week was that I've been asked more than once, now, if there would be a sequel to this book.  It was apparent they didn't read the book the whole way through.  [See the grin?] I just responded, "when you reach the end of the book, let me know if you still think there should be [a sequel]."

I will know soon enough if I need to scrap the 300 some pages that are waiting to find some progress.

Thank you all for letting me "bloom".  Being a first-timer with this kind of child...you are all being very kind, and extremely patient!  I will know in February if the publishing house will fully live up to its name.  It's hard, being an underdog in a dog-eat-cat world...but so far, being the guinea-pig in this venture?  I don't have gripe one.

And I thank, humbly, and with all sincerity, the people who shared with me the ins and outs and probable heart-ache of this venture.  I do appreciate your concerns, but so far....?

It's been a pleasant wonder.

HELLO DEAR KARILEA! YOUR FIRST SHIPMENT OVERSEAS ARRIVED SAFELY LAST FRIDAY  ... AND i am really EXCITED in telling you that I think, no I AM SURE that your first novel will be a bestseller! Motivations?

hmmmm ... it happens very rarely I must say, that I am pushed to read on, to turn the pages, to find hiding places where I can read in peace ... I actually neglected several of my week-end duties (working long hours throughout the week brings along quite some exigencies ...)! IT HAPPENED WITH YOUR BOOK ... I am more than halfway through and I LOVE IT!

The story is indeed very intriguing and totally after my heart! Whiskey and Geist are my friends by now and I look at my Zelda in a new way ..."could it be that she has some secrets for me?"...haha (My former cat KING MIZAR THE FIRST had some!).

The book is wonderfully written, dear Karilea. You have nothing to envy other writers of novels who have conquered the world with their books. And your name sounds fantastic too!

Of course I will be back to tell you my final impression. But you deserve my truest COMPLIMENTS for your achievement!

For now HUGS ... rushing home to see if I can go on reading for a while.

Margherita

I ordered your book from our local book seller and it's due in on Dec. 6th. I wish I had seen this link and could have ordered it from you and had it autographed. Oh well! I look forward to reading it.

Best of luck with sales.

Karilea,
It's worth coming back to PIP just to be a part of the warm embrace and heartfelt congratulations that has flowed from this poet community. I heard the news by word of mouth and cried real tears of joy at the news of your book. I have no doubt as to the quality of writing that I will enjoy.
You are the best.
Love and big hugs
Liz

Jo ~ from your lips, to Santa's ear!  I'm smiling...

Ruth...just follow the yellow brick road...and check your email...

MartyJo, I'm just glad it reached you, and that you are enjoying it...thank you!

Donna...just let me know when!

Margherita....you were indeed my very first International Shipment!  I'm so glad it arrived safe and is quite sound in your beautiful hands!  I about became combustible [you know how the sun shines brightly!] when I read your glowing review!  I am anxious to know how you feel about it after you have turned the last page!

Nan, as busy as you are...I'm surprised you're getting through that much!  I've had some wonderful comments on the home page!  I cannot thank you enough for all you've done!  

SEA...Ed....

who's grabbing whom?   ....

Keep me apprised...LOL....

Misty, I would have loved to have sent you a personally autographed copy...maybe?  If we are lucky?  I'll be in your area someday and can autograph your copy for you!  Let me know your thoughts on that, and the storyline itself...and thank you!

Elizabeth, if this is what it takes to bring you home to Passions, m'dear, please let me get busy on the sequel!

Thank you, everyone.  This has been one heck of an experience!

December 8 is coming up fast, and I have been preparing for the first "official" book signing.  We've already caught people off guard by having the signing at a very unconventional area...my chiropractor's office.

However, when one considers all they did to keep me in condition to stay at a computer for hours on end...it really makes sense.  Plus, their belief in my own dreams...well, that has a lot to do with it, as well. Even before the book was ever submitted...they said they would hold the first signing.  What is even better, is that as we throw ideas back and forth?  We keep coming up with ideas to expand one another's ideas...

And isn't that what it is all about?

As a good friend of mine said, recently...

"yup!"

God bless you all.  Thank you for your love, support...and...

Read On!

Congrats!

I feel so proud!

If I had the money readily available, I'd be buying myself a wonderous copy..until then, I will save up!

I must have it.


Congrats again.
