The "Whenever Newsletter" containing the wit and wisdom of LDS author Susan Law Corpany is put out several times a year, but not on any set schedule. You will find the stories behind the stories, excerpts from works in progress, humorous insights, ideas for how to avoid doing housework. In other words--whatever and whenever. (Just a touch of rebellion.) Subscription is free and free from the contraint of a publishing schedule, because after all, writers are under enough deadlines. Enjoy!
Newsletter Dated: 4/8/2009 11:10:03 AM
Subject: Catching Up on the Columns
I have been so busily engaged in breaking all my New Year's Resolutions that I have neglected to send out my updates for the last three months. Another reason is that I have had many new names to add and didn't want to send this out until they were all on it.
First off, I would like to say that if there is anyone who would prefer not to get these updates, please let me know and I will remove you (sob! sob!) from my mailing list. If you are getting duplicate copies, let me know that also. I am trying to clean up the list, and I don't want to be a source of unwanted e-mail to anyone.
Here are the links to my columns that ran since my last newsletter:
My latest is a fun read about giving and receiving compliments, called "Horace J., you made my day."
Before that, I waxed eloquent about giving and taking offense in "The Best Defense is Not Always a Good Offense."
This next one was inspired by a memory when I ran across a lady I know on Facebook who is my example of listening to the spirit.
This one contains a poem I wrote called "For the Ninety and Nine."
I wrote this one in response to our challenging economic times.
The first of the year always begs for a column about New Year's Resolutions.
Here is one about livestock management.
And here is my Christmas installment about not being greedy.
Those of you who have gotten this far in the e-mail I know are my true and loyal fans.
I am having a sale on my four novels, Brotherly Love, Unfinished Business, Push On and Are We There Yet? One book for $10, two for $18, three for $24 and four for $30. Postage is $2 per book. (Mother's Day is coming.) I am trying to cover the cost of two almost back-to-back writing-related trips to Utah. (And they say the hyphen is dead.) They are good books. Really, they are. I'm not just saying that because I wrote them. They're funny, too, often in spite of the subject matter. They make you laugh and cry, a complete emotional workout without leaving the comfort of your Barcalounger.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order any. If you would like to use a credit card, you can call me at 808 936-9181 and I'll take that information for you over the phone or you can email me with a number to call.
If you forward this e-mail to ten friends, preferably LDS ones who might be interested in my writing, it will earn you one free book, postage paid. Forward me the forward showing to whom it went with your mailing address attached. I will contact the people you forwarded it to to ask if they would like to receive my newsletter. No one's name will be added if they do not request it.
For those of you who have been growing old waiting for Heaven Help Us!, it has finally been delivered to what I hope will be my new publisher. I'll keep you posted.
I hope spring has sprung for those of you who do not enjoy year-round summer like I do here in Hawaii.
