The following is my newsletter that went out today.
My friends (I do count you all as my friends), this will be my last author newsletter. I am being pushed in a new focus direction. But first I want to thank each of you for your support, kindness, and loyalty. I truly appreciate you.
I only have rights to a couple of my books, rights sufficient to donate. Some of you have already received my thanks in the form of donations of my books for your church congregations. I have felt a great deal of satisfaction in being able to share the messages in my books with you and your friends.
Over the past two years I have made offers at considerable discount for the two books I have the rights to. Now I would like to make a FREE offer for you, my friends.
I am a rather driven person. I try my best to follow what I feel Heavenly Father would like me to do. And right now I feel I should be working on my genealogy and spending more time with my family instead of spending my time writing books and marketing them. So I am offering to supply free of charge to any non-profit organization (churches do count) bulk copies of I Am Strong! I Am Smart! (a 2014 finalist for best children’s religious book in the USA).
Saturday our stake (a large congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) had a literacy day, preparing literacy packets for non-profit organizations like the Road Home. I was blessed to be a part of that by donating books to go in the packets. In December the Primary Children’s Hospital also asked for 100 copies of this book (as a donation from me). Wow that felt good, to know children would be getting the messages from that book. Some congregations have requested copies to give as gifts for Mother’s Day.
Your only expense would be picking up the books. I only require a letter on letterhead from the organization the books are donated to, stating the number of books received. I must turn this letter in to my accountant.
Since my last newsletter I have written a number of additional articles for “Meridian Magazine.” I will continue to write for them. Those articles keep my fingers in the writing arena, which I would miss if I quit writing altogether. If you have an interest in receiving links to those articles after this newsletter, let me know and I will be happy to forward those links each quarter.
Here are the links to those articles that have come out since my last newsletter. I hope you enjoy and benefit from them.
November Meridian Magazine article
December Meridian Magazine article
January Meridian Magazine article
February Meridian Magazine article
Also, here is the link for the October article. For some reason it is not coming up in Meridian’s search engine.
Some of you may recall from my last newsletter that Sheryl Johnson, author and owner of GrannyEnchanted.com invited me to guest blog on her website for a seven-day series regarding grandparenting. I really appreciate GrannyEnchanted.com. When I make my posters for Facebook or Pinterest, I turn first to the beautiful papers and elements I have received there.
At the time of my last newsletter most of those articles had not yet come out. You will find them at the following links:
Thank You Again
Thank you again for your support and for sharing my writing. My success has only come about because of you.
