SOCK WARS by Hannah Christensen

Today I want to dedicate my blog to a special child who has written a book for very special reasons.

Sock Wars is a children's picture book about playing and enjoying every moment in life. The book is dedicated to the memory of Hannah's brother, Jonah, who died suddenly three years ago at the age of six. The book also comes with a song.

All the proceeds go to The Vancouver Sun's "Raise-a-Reader" Program.

The author, Hannah Christensen is twelve years old. I was touched by the article I read about this book and her dedication. It is heart-warming and humbling to realize that one so young could think of such a wonderful way to honor the life and loss of her sibling. 

Bravo, Hannah!

If you would like more information or to order this book, here is the link.

To all the writers out there, keep on keeping on writing and have a great week.

Publishing Update for "Winter's Captive".

The journey continues. My books arrived and what a feeling. How can I express that feeling in words? Think of the most satisfying, exciting, surreal moment in your life and I guess that would explain it.

My release date has been pushed to November 2011, still out for Christmas. So keep it in mind for that special gift for stocking stuffers, or that special person you think would enjoy it. 

Another first, I had my first Press Release online, here's the link:

"Winter's Captive" is available at great discounted presale prices on various sites such as Chapters Indigo, Canadian Bookshelf, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. Follow the link below to my website for more details and links to these sites. And don't forget to enter Giveaways on the Goodreads link above. Five books will be given away to randomly picked winners.

At the moment, I am setting up a signing/reading event in my Village for next month. An exciting and daunting venture, it should be a lot of fun as well. My publisher is setting up more for me at book store chains. When I know my events schedule, I will post it here and on my website.

I want to feature as well, a fellow writer who has just released an ebook entitlted: "Agartha's Castaway". If you like young adult, fantasy, past worlds and prehistoric animals, author Chrissy Peebles has the book for you.   Here's the link to her blog:

Good luck Chrissy and welcome to the world of publishing.

That's it for now. Off to work on my sequel.

Keep on keeping on writing!
