Sowing — What Makes This Story Relevant

Hi all,

I want to share a story with you. It is one that I co-authored with Jessica Janna, renowned New York evangelist and song stylist. The name of her book is Sowing. It is the second install in her Relinquish and Reap Series, a collection of her memories.

Jessica, who is now seventy-something, recounts her years as an adolescent in the purse-sized book Sowing. She shares with readers some experiences of hers that became her secrets to carry… until now.

To read more about this remarkable woman of faith, take a peek at the review written by BellaOnline.com’s Christian Literature Editor, Lyn Sedmina.

It is my hope that after reading the review and the book, you will see what makes Jessica and her story — told in seven volumes — one for each decade of her life — relevant.

Book Giveaway and Radio Appearance

Hi there, 

I wanted to let you know about something I’m doing soon… 

I am going to appear on ‘A WOMAN’S SPIRIT’ — the radio show, click on ‘Listen Online, Live Streaming Radio.’  It is an empowering, enriching 1-hour program, for women. Men are welcome too. Briefly, let me describe the show. It is a laid back, quiet space, located smack dab in the middle of a week that sometimes consists of chaos. You get the picture…this show is something you need, an experience you can use to re-charge. I must tell you, the show’s host, Ms. Vanecia Wills-Leufroy has the most lovely cadence to her voice. I often listen to her while I write. Her rich deep vocal tones  remind me of cacao and cream, or of the jazz diva Sarah Vaughn’s extraordinary singing voice, and this host connects with her audience. She feels them, and they her! I like that. Check out the show and you just might agree. Oh, and trust me to liken anything — even a person’s voice — to food! 

However, to get back on track, on ‘A WOMAN’S SPIRIT’ we will host a two-book giveaway for my latest novel. 

A deliciously frustrating and exhilarating love story.

 

It is called Turnabout

For those of you who don’t know, Turnabout is a love story, but it is not just about the lovers. Their family, friends, and even those whom only a mama can love, are all entwined in this must-read. 

The date of my appearance is   

Wednesday, September 1, 2010  

2 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

The lovely thing about this show is you may listen from your laptop or computer! 

Click here to go to the Radio Show. 

Or you may tune in online:  www.radiosandysprings.com/showpages/womansspirit.php 

Don’t forget, it’s next week: Wednesday September 1, 2010 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

As I said, I will discuss my latest novel. I will also explain to listeners how I found ‘my voice’ — my reason for writing.  Then two lucky winners will win their own signed copy of my book! 

This particular episode of ‘A WOMAN’S SPIRIT’ is also slated to be re-broadcast, and will be available for you to listen to in the radio show’s archives.  www.radiosandysprings.com/showpages/womansspirit.php 

I want you to listen. I’d like that. I also want you to enter the contest — not because I’ll get anything out of it … but wouldn’t it be great if you won?! 

Don’t forget, join us for a bit of cacao, cream, and meaningful chit-chat. You’re gonna love it!
