I’m pleased to share with you the latest critique of my eBook,
‘Living A Miracle,
We All Do… Every Day’
“Few people have to endure
what the author of this book did.
After an accident,
she had to learn to go to the bathroom again, learn to walk.
Her challenges are the basis of an inspirational book that contains life lessons for all of us,
even those who don’t face what she faced.
The author doesn’t wallow in self-pity or use easy platitudes,
one of the great lines of the book is that she’s the ‘Rodney Dangerfield’ of spirituality.
Her sense of humor and the accessible language she lays it all out in,
makes a reader feel as though her lessons
ARE for each of us and puts it in plain terms.
The sub-title of the book, ‘We All Do’ should be a sign to anyone who picks it up
that there will be information to help lead the life
we are intended to live.
At some points, the book is almost free-form verse,
a poetic ode to the strength of people,
how we’re all different and
how we can all find ways to cope.”
– Judge, Writer’s Digest Self-Published e-Book

So I don’t do a lot of GiveAways….
BUT, a few weeks ago my son asked me if we could go to ‘Boloco’ and try a ‘Globally – Inspired’ Burrito. They just opened a location by our house, so I said, “Sure, why not?”
And it was a great experience!
I got a salad and my son got a burrito, because they offer their creations in a burrito, or a bowl (I LOVE THIS!) ….
A few days later, Boloco contacted me about trying their food, along with a leader in the tofu business, Nasoya, and would I like to do a GiveAway for my readers ????
…. KARMA ? ….
So I said, “YES!” Because you don’t mess with the Universe like that; plus I learned that Boloco is partnering with Nasoya to make some of their recipes in their restaurants and this creates healthy alternatives for the burrito chain (I LOVE THIS!).
I’m already a big tofu fan and I can honestly say that Nasoya tofu is in my refrigerator right now.
We’ve gone back since and my husband even likes Boloco and he’s generally not a fan of burritos and overly-filling food; BUT that is what is great about Boloco, in my opinion, you can get healthy choices at this burritos joint (I LOVE THIS!).
So try it out !!
They have numerous locations in New England and one in Bethesda and one in the District-
but don’t take my word for it-
ENTER THE GIVEAWAY FOR A $10 GIFTCARD AND A COUPON FOR FREE NASOYA TOFU!!

GOOD LUCK !!
I will choose the winner with RANDOM.ORG and then contact the winner this weekend! I will ask you for your address so Boloco can send you your giftcard… and free tofu coupon !!
I just had the pleasure of reading Measure of Love, by Melissa Ford.
This book is the sequel to Life from Scratch, and it’s the story of Rachel and Adam Goldman; they are getting married… again!
This is a great book about relationships, perspectives, trust and love.
The more you read of this book, the less you want to put it down.
Pick it up this summer-
I recently had the pleasure of reading When She Was Wicked !
This is a GREAT Debut Novel by Anne Barton.
It has everything… twists and turns, intrigue, money and most of all, LOVE.
And the pacing is terrific – it never stops !
I loved this book, and got to finish it on the beach,
so keep it in mind this summer-
pick it up now for a great beach read!
This week, another great book…
on a totally different topic-
It’s Stuart Horwitz’s –
Blueprint Your Bestseller !
This book is a great guide to writing a novel.
It’s in-depth yet simple to understand,
and helps a writer organize a novel well.
I bought it after I heard him speak at a Writer’s Digest Conference,
and I think it is a great investment for a writer.
I believe it is a fantastic tool for a new and/or
unpublished writer, especially.
It deals with organizing scenes and series,
and never uses the word plot!
And I love that it also reminds you
that your book can only
This week I’m look- ing at another book, this time it’s a non-fiction picture book!
This is a story about the true rescue of a whale and the unusual and beautiful display of animal behavior it delivered.
This book is written and illustrated by the best-selling children’s book author, Jennifer O’Connell, who is believe it or not, my neighbor!
This story really gave me goosebumps and the pictures show Jennifer’s amazing talent.
Please check out Jennifer’s Website to see a trailer for her book and check out her artwork and books!
Only as Good as Your Word
by Susan Shapiro has the sub-heading,
‘Writing Lessons From My Favorite Literary Gurus’
but it’s more like LIFE LESSONS.
Everyone can learn from Shapiro’s experiences and mentors and she shares these tales and thoughts and feelings with a generosity of spirit and an authentic voice.
In fact, you feel like you are sitting around sharing coffee with Shapiro while you read these pages.
Her stories are very New York, and very fun.
A couple of my favorite lines are,
“Remember, a plumber never gets plumber’s block.” and
“But surrounding yourself with ass-kissers could turn you into Michael Jackson.”
Words to write by, and words to live by.
This is a great read, and Shapiro has a such a style and voice,
this book would be fun to read on the couch or on the beach this summer….
It’s for writers, but it’s really for everybody.
It’s definitely worth your time!
