Cover Reveal: New Gift Book for Children!

Autograph Book for Kids Coming in 2017:

Autograph books made their debut in Europe more than 500 years ago. They are prized by collectors, historians and genealogists. Children can practice this ancient tradition with Autographs: A Keepsake Album (Kids’ Edition).

quill_psf_vector-svgWhen so much interaction takes place via keyboard, mouse, touch pad, swipe screen, and digital “signatures,” children need more encouragement than ever to practice their penmanship, and autograph books can help. The seven historical signatures in the book can help stimulate interest in the past. There are creative coloring opportunities, too.

If you’re looking for an educational children’s gift book that has the potential to become a lifelong-prized possession, consider Autographs: A Keepsake Album (Kids’ Edition).

Watch for the Teen/Adult Editions, too! 🙂

Time for an Update.

Dear Friends,

It’s been a rough several months, what with beginning treatment for pernicious anemia; the slow, complicated recovery from two surgeries for cancer; and two invasive diagnostic procedures (I had to postpone two others, because I wasn’t up to handling any more).

I have a request. If Irish Firebrands has been on your TBR list, I’d greatly appreciate it if you’d pick up a paperback. Getting it direct from CreateSpace will cut out the greedy middleman Major Online Retailer, which likes to double-dip on its profits (because it already owns CS, and then it takes another huge cut when it sells a copy, on top of the share that CS takes when it gets a print order from said Retailer). Even a little bit bigger royalty will help a lot, because I’m disabled, living on a below-poverty-level pension, and some of the drugs I need are not covered by Medicare.

I’ll be starting the first round of chemotherapy on Tuesday, and that will last for 8 weeks. After a 3 to 4 week “rest” to let my blood recover, the second round will begin, lasting 12 weeks. If I feel up to it, I’ll be lurking, and I may leave brief comments at your blogs, but I don’t know how the drugs will affect my ability to write my own blog, so I’ve pre-scheduled some posts here, and book reviews at my Passions of Patriots blog. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Thank you for your encouragement and support.

Yours truly,

Christine
