Chasing the silver linings in my clouds
3/5/2012 6:31:06 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

After a stressful year of car accidents and surgeries good news disperse the clouds.

January 2012 changed my moods for the better, after the four surgeries and three car incidents during the last eighteen months. With one leg firmly on the ground and the other racing with it to recuperate, Iím in a better mood to face the paper heap that has accumulated during my rehab. Only a fool would work so much for so little.  But I had good news to uplift my spirits.

 

1.       My book, The Immigrantsí Daughter, was included in the nominations for Dan Poynterís Global E-Book Awards. The final results will be available in August.  

 

2.    The Department of Education and Training from Queensland, Australia, requested permission to include, as from April 2012, the first two pages from the prologue of my book in their curriculum materials for Queensland teachers and students, on a password protected Department Website. The request has been granted.

 

3.    I learned that an excerpt from Chapter 18 of my book will be 

     published in ACT College Prep book now squatting on the

     publication queue.

 

I also had positive feedback from three mature women during the last quarter of 2012, this time from Australia and Canada. Their comments melted my heart. Books, particularly the digital ones, travel faster than we do. The joy of seeing them reach the intended primary audience, despite limited publicity, is unparalleled.

 

Well, every cloud has a silver lining and my clouds had certainly a few streaks of good luck as well. The sunny weather in California must have had something to do with the clear skies in my neck of the woods. I hope the rest of the year will be as promising.
