A Reunion with Kindred Spirits

I went to the Breathe Writer’s Christian Writing Conference again last weekend. It warms my heart to think of it. It’s like going home. Reminds me of a reunion with “kindred spirits.” We understand each other. I talked with old and new friends. We learn, we grow, we stretch.

Lorilee's newest book

Lorilee’s newest book

Speaking of “kindred spirits”…I’m giving away a copy of a new book that my friend, Lorilee Craker wrote, called “Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter and Me-What My Favorite Book Taught Me about Grace, Belonging and the Orphan in Us All.” It’s a rich memoir which would touch the heart of almost anyone, especially if you liked the Anne of Green Gables books or movies, you’re interested in orphans or adopting in any way, or you’re just ready for a great memoir by a great author!

I will be giving away one copy of this book on Oct. 20. A couple things I ask. We’re on the honor system, I’m not going to keep track and hunt you down. But please do two of the following things for me and you will be in the running to receive the book:

  1. Become an email follower of my blog here. To subscribe, just look up in the top right hand corner. I’d love it if you’d leave a comment on any of my posts too! 🙂

2.  “Share” my blog on a social media site such as Twitter or your Facebook page.

3.  “Like” my Facebook author page, called, “Tablet of your Heart.” https://www.facebook.com/Tablet-of-your-Heart-536957072995593  “Like” the actual page, up at the TOP. I’d appreciate any like on a posting, but liking the actual page is very helpful:)

4.  Do a review on Goodreads for Lorilee Craker 536957072995593/ at https://www.goodreads.com/author/list/3378.Lorilee_Craker after you’ve read this book, or any of her many books. Of course we love “good” reviews, but be honest. If you’d like to order any books from Lorilee or learn more about her, here’s the link. http://www.amazon.com/Lorilee-Craker/e/B001JP7HQ0  She has given me advice and encouragement at several conferences and meetings and I appreciate her friendship.

Disclaimer here: I have not received any monetary or other perks for giving away Lorilee’s book. I bought the book and want to give it away so others can enjoy it.  I just happen to like her, and her premise on this story.

You wouldn’t believe how extremely encouraging it is for a writer to receive any of these kinds of things listed above. Our writing comes from our souls-it is our art, our prayer.

Authors try to network and help one another in many ways. It’s one way we worship-to build up friends and their work.

This offer is open until Tues. Oct. 20, at 9 p.m. Please let me know the two things you have done. Then a winner will be chosen at random. Contact me in some way so I can acquire your snail mail address and the book will be in the mail!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I haven’t been posting as often because life has been happening too fast, I’ve just finished a set of devotionals, and also am working on interviewing women, for a book about women who have lost their mothers….so you’ll see more about this soon. I am also determined to get more organized and post on the blog more regularly.

Blessings to you,

  1. It was a wonderful conference! Really enjoyed getting to know you better too. I think perhaps we are “kindred bloggers” in writing our family stories. I am definitely going to be reading that book at some point. I love Anne of Green Gables.

    • We sure had a lot of fun! We didn’t have much time together, but glad that I’m not the only one that mis-places keys and money and things…..Did you participate in the contest? I am really showing my non-techie difficulties! LOL Would love to spend some more time together soon!
