"I have a dream to create an organization with a message of love that celebrates the magic of childhood."

Good news is I sold a copy of My Little Luminaire in April. Even better news, I gave the copy of My Little Luminaire away in May. I want to focus on that story. The giveaway copy recipient came by way of an impromptu nomination. We recently had our home’s interior painted, one of the painters and I struck up a conversation about the books. I’d asked him if he knew a child who is in need of a book? He responded with an enthusiastic “Yes”, followed by a description of a young neighbor girl who always had a smile on her face, but lived without toys and books due to meager means. We decided together that she needed a book. I sent the copy with him, allowing him the joy of giving her the book. He was unaware that she’d gotten word that he had something for her, and when he got home from work the next day she was waiting in his living room. She smiled with delight upon him giving her the book, and I was graced with photographic proof of the exchange. I hope that this moment sticks with both of them, and I hope that she treasures the book. I got the only thing I really care about, I got the smile, maybe I’m simple, but it’s my currency of choice.
In other news Empath to Self Love has progressed through layout, cover, and proof copy. It still needs some edits, pretty much just some layout things concerning font and indentation, but it’s close to completion. I’m excited about this book, because as my books go it’s the first that is written for the mainstream public. Although directed towards Empaths by definition, the realizations, tools, and practices within the pages are valuable to all individuals looking to make positive impact, within, throughout, and with their lives.
Stayed tuned, much love,
I'm writing for the love of writing and the joy it brings. I figure I can defeat illiteracy if I publish in a socially equitable way. To do this I give away one book, for every one purchased to an organization that supports at risk youth.
