You are the first to see the cover of The Christmas Village!!


I'm so excited to show you the cover of The Christmas Village! It won't be long now until the book is a book and available for sale. I will keep you posted on that (of course :-)

The Christmas Village now has a Facebook page, and I would love it if you would visit sometime soon and "Like" it. And, if you would spread the word to your followers and ask them to "Like" it too, well, I will just kiss your pretty little bloggi feet! Or, at least I'll send you a Big Virtual Hug!

Here's the Facebook link: The Christmas Village Facebook Page

I'm very grateful for the wonderful bloggi friends I've made over this past year. It's remarkable how we manage to find each other out here in cyberspace, and make lasting and heartfelt connections.  We share not just our journeys as writers, artists and bloggers, but also as regular old people who are just trying to navigate through life with grace, compassion and humor. In yoga, we have the word "sanga," which means community. This is truly a bloggi sanga of generous souls who make me think and make me laugh. Thank you.

There will be a separate website for the book once it's available for sale, but this blog is something I do for me, not for the book, and I'll be keeping it.

Thank you again for all the kindness and support that comes my way here in bloggi land. XOXOXO

  1. I L.O.V.E. the artwork! It's a little folksy (which I also love) and touch of whimsy. Excellent!

  5. Thanks Paul! I wanted to capture the Christmas feeling of course, but also show there is an adventure afoot - I think we got it. I was lucky with the Createspace illustrator - he/she? got what I was going for right away. I have to ask for the name so that he/she can get credit!!
