Good morning friends,

Sorry it has been so long since I have been able to blog. Had a family funeral to attend over the last weekend and was out of state for a few day for that.

The big news is that I received my first shipment of "Sunrise, Day One!" on Tuesday and was sold out by Wednesday! Part of that was due to the wonderful book review written for me by Jan Toomer, a Twitter friend. She posted her article on for all to see. A better review I could not have asked for! Thanks so much, Jan, and I am so glad that you liked the book!

I can tell you all that it means so much to an author when people appreciate and enjoy your work. I know for me, "Sunrise, Day One!" is not just a book or a story. It is a part of me, of my experiences in life, and the very core of my beliefs, something that has come from my heart and soul.

"Sunrise, Day One!" is available on,, and of course, However, I have put in another order for a good supply of books so that I will have some on hand, if any of my Twitter friends or blog readers would like to order directly from me and save some "middle man" costs. Again, my email address is and I look forward to hearing from you.

Those of you who are new to reading my blog and would like to read excerpts from "Sunrise, Day One!" check out my earlier blogs from June 4th through July 25th. They will give you a good idea of the type and content of the book.

Happy reading, all!

Joy! Joy! "Sunrise, Day One!" is on, and! Finally! And today I got my first book order for 'The Catalpa Tree" bookstore in Grabill, IN. How great is that?
Now, for all of you who are my followers at Twitter, I want to make you a special offer. If you would like to buy the book directly from me at a special reduced Twitter-follower price, email me at the address on my last blog entry, and we will talk.
Have a great day!!
