Hey Cheryl really enjoying your book Children of the Fog. You have an amazing imagination. As a non-fiction writer I admire that. And thank you for all the advice you have given me. Healthy Skin Secrets has sold almost 100 so far this month! Thanks heaps.
Hi! I’m from the Canada group, just popping by to let you know that we are trying to drum up interest in doing a group read. We have a thread started for anyone who is interested to let us know they are interested. Once we know there will be a few people, we’ll then decide on a book (Canadian author, of course!). Hope you decide to join us!
There is a road in the hearts of all of us, hidden and seldom traveled,
which leads to an unkown, secret place.
The old people came literally to love the soil,
and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of
being close to a mothering power.
Their teepees were built upon the earth
and their altars were made of earth.
The soul was soothing, strengthening, cleansing and healing.
That is why the old Indian still sits upon the earth instead of
propping himself up and away from its life giving forces.
For him, to sit or lie upon the ground is to be able to think more deeply
and to feel more keenly. He can see more clearly into the mysteries of
life and come closer in kinship to other lives about him.

I so appreciate you accepting my Shelfari friendship request. If you are interested, I would like to invite you to be among the first readers to review my new book "Moments of Forever: Discovering the True Power and Importance of Your Life" (a registered Shelfari title). It is a practical study in metaphysics that will help you find greater meaning in your life. It has been available for just a few weeks but it has already gained much acclaim within the large iUniverse publishing house—receiving the “Editor’s Choice” award and being honored as a “Rising Star” title. “Moments of Forever” is a book that will benefit and enrich the lives of people for many years to come. Please help me launch this very special book with your personal Shelfari review.
You're right, we do have a lot in common. I worked as a dancer and stand-in mostly while in Hollywood. My claim to fame would have to be my dance stint on Rags to Riches, which was a weekly musical show about 5 orphan girls adopted by a wealthy man. Sound familiar? It was compared a lot to Annie. :) I worked on Rags the entire last season before NBC canceled us. Oh, and I worked as a Disneyland performer for a while too, but that's a whole other story. :)
I've never been to Yuma. When we go to CA, we always to to LA, not San Diego, because we have family and friends there. So, how do your in-laws like it out there? That's too funny about your mother-in-law. Maybe you should hire her as your sales manager. :-D
Well, hubby's on his way home and he's bringing food. :) You and yours have a fantastic weekend!
Could you please tell me more about Whale Song? I've never read any of your books, but this sounds interesting. I wish I could buy a copy of this book but I'm on a limited income. Would there be a way that maybe you could send me a copy of it. If so my address is Judy Face, 68 Elm Street, Rensselaer, NY 12144. Please let me know. I would like to be your friend on Shelfari. Sincerely, Judy PS: Did you ever meet Lisa Scottoline? She is a good mystery writer also.
Cheryl, since coming back to the states I have much more access to a computer and just figured out that people can post notes. Read yours about coming to Vallarta and am so sad to have missed you! I hope you were able to see the whales. I am a former school teacher and aspiring to publish my first picture book soon. Next time you make it down to Mexico, please let me know and I will be sure to offer wonderful ideas--maybe we can even meet up. All the best to you, Cheryl. I will keep my eyes out for Whale Song.
I'm going into the eighth grade and find it very fun to write, but I don't think I'm very good. My older sister writes great and every time she has me read a paper of hers, I become angry. I wish I could write better and are looking for any help, do you have any tips?
