** The Thin Threads Books Are Here! **

Yesterday evening that Big Brown Truck drove down my street and I mentally told it to stop at my house....and guess what? It did! UPS delivered my box of books from Kiwi Publishing! I felt like a kid at Christmas time, waiting for and then receiving that most anticipated gift.



I'll sign the books that have been ordered from me and get them mailed as soon as I can. This is the list of names I have, and if I've forgotten anyone PLEASE let me know! Lynn O. Teri S. Kathy M. Sioux R. and OJ G-C. (I feel as if I AM forgetting someone. I should've written all the names on ONE piece of paper!)

Kiwi Publishing is also offering a *special* on the Thin Threads site. Buy at least one book and receive a 10% discount, plus FREE shipping. Those books would ship directly from their warehouse, so I wouldn't be able to sign them. Their offer is good through 12/31/2010.

So, here are the two possibilities:

Order from me, pay full price of $17.95, receive free shipping, and I will autograph and donate $5.00 per book to my local Habitat for Humanity office.

*Order from Thin Threads* pay $16.15, receive free shipping, and I will still donate $5.00 per book. IF YOU DO ORDER DIRECTLY FROM THIN THREADS, CONTACT ME FIRST, SO I CAN GIVE YOU THE DISCOUNT CODE.

After meeting Tara and becoming involved in Habitat for Humanity, I can't tell you how much it means to me to be able to help, even in a small way. There are wonderful stories in this anthology and would truly make a very thoughtful gift during the holidays. And with Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I think all of us who are using a computer and blogging, have a decent place to live.

“The goal of this organization is to make sure that all families have a good place to live. To accomplish that ambitious goal, decent and good housing must become the hearts’ desire of committed and generous people. Substandard housing must become socially, religiously, morally and politically unacceptable.” — The late Millard Fuller, Habitat for Humanity Founder

  1. Congratulations! Perhaps I have that power as well? Do you think if I "will" the editors, they will send me an acceptance letter?

    How can I get a book? Can I send you a check? If you're paying the shipping, I'd rather get it from Thin Threads. Email me and let me know...

    Have a great day with The Ronald tomorrow.

  2. Hi Becky,

    How exciting! I will order right from you ... I want your autograph. I will send the check out on Friday. Sioux has a point on the shipping costs, but I think if you send it book rate, and the books are paperback and light, I don't think that should break you. You are so sweet to include the postage in the deal though.

    Once again, I am so proud of you and how often you are getting published.

    Have a great day tomorrow, Beautiful Blogger.

    Kathy

  7. Congratulations, Becky. Doesn't it feel sooooooo good when a book comes out with your name on it? And especially one for such a good cause! One more thing to be thankful about, right?

  8. That's what I get for jumping in without looking more closely. Oh, well, sorry about that. Doesn't matter anyway. The point of the book is not that you're getting the praise...just that its helping others!
