It's a day of R A I N here in the sunshine state... while I've read that across the lands the cold has moved in in places, snow has fallen in some, winds are whipping around in KS, and blowing hard in CO... It just might be a great day to snuggle in, find a good movie or a good read while taking good care of YOU on a day like this day. Here the rain is beating in those downspouts like an old friend on a drum as the little 4 leggeds are nestling in like old man winter with their sleep on!
They are funny little ones, demanding that I get up with the light only then to stay awake long enough for me to get my coffee before finding their place to get sound asleep... as if saying, "oh ok she is awake, time for sleep." Jeepers is now walking on all 4 feet once again, his recovery seems almost complete... what a long month it has been for him. thank you all for the thoughts, the prayers and emails asking about him.
Down the Hallway the story of one woman's journey with Dissociative Identity Disorder is now available in 13 countries with Amazon~ I am tickled to pieces with that news. There is even a review now on Amazon Italy... I have great hopes that there will be great things in store for Down The Hallway as we move into months ahead, more have written with their thoughts after and during reading it. The reviews are all incredible to me, they are awesome.
Charmaine has received her copy as many had asked if I would be sending one to her.
Yes, I will be sure and let the world know her thoughts once I hear them myself; (good or bad)!
A friend has suggested a "tweetfest" on my fan page, that others with Twitter often send out "tweets" letting people know of the book, along with "tweeting" to @Oprah, @Ellen @DrPhil, @Whoopi @TomHanks @RitaWilson et all to let them know of their #nextgreatread.
I'm all for it, let's spread the word. I have always believed there is no better way to get the word out about something than the use of the "moccasin telegraph". to be even more modern in these days of "fast, quick and efficient", we now have a QR code! Just scan it, you will then be taken to the author page... yes you can even order author-graphed books from there.
How bout' that for modern and "with it"
Saturday shout out to Mr. John Kremer the guru of #BookMarketing who has wonderfully given me and the world such valuable ideas through the years. He is a lovely and at times quite funny man with more passion and interests than you can shake a stick at.
finally, for your Saturday moment of heart pounding... I have to share with you Whoopi, a trail blazer brought to tears.
We all have those times when we can only imagine making an imprint on the life of another, making a difference in some way.
There are times when we may be thanked for something, times when our heart gets touched in gratitude, or when we hope to inspire maybe. This clip made my heart explode. (I can and have been able to see Whoopi playing me in the Movie #DownTheHallway since the beginning of writing it)...
This is the interview with Whoopi and the courageous of one young man who stood UP breaking a promise to his wife to speak. Yes, my heart exploded.
May you have the most splendid moments today, designed and created by YOU. We each make our mark with each step we take, each word we speak, each breath we take. Thank you each of you.
Because of you, I continue to strive to be more.
Walk in beauty,
Down the Hallway
