Winner of A Cluttered Life and a Shout Out for Toilet Paper

Thanks to Pesi Dinnerstain for being my guest blogger on Monday as part of the WOW! Author's Tour.

Pesi, your post about your thoughts on "Trying to Find that Small, Still Voice" was inspiring!

Also, thanks to everyone who left a question or a comment for Pesi and once again to Pesi for her response to comments.

The winner of the PDF file of Pesi's wonderful book A Cluttered Life: Searching for God, Serenity, and My Missing Keys is:

TAMMY

Congratulations! I will get that to you this week.

For everyone else, you can find out how to buy Pesi's book on the A Cluttered Life website.

Next, I would like to welcome my newest follwer:

Rebeca Ruiz (aka Rebeca Wise)

Rebeca is an amazing writer and a sweet young lady who loves to read. Oh, and she has two adorable Dobermans. A regular at our Coffee and Critique group, her critiques are thoughtful and generous. She also is the new Vice President of Saturday Writers.

Rebeca also has a new blog with an intriguing title "The Toilet Paper Chronicles" with a blog address of tpchronicles.

If you're wondering why the unusual title, it's because Rebeca is a woman on a mission. She is using her blog to draw attention to Chron's Disease, which she was diagnosed with at the age of 12, and which is a disease that affects more than a million people in the United States. I think it's a wonderful use of a blog--increasing the awareness and enhancing the understanding of this disease. On her blog she will also post about books and writing.

If you get a chance, drop on over and visit Rebeca's blog and sign up to become a follower, but don't forget to bring your own paper.

  1. Oh, I will check this out! Hubby has Crohn's and the family has dealt with it for 35 years. It invades every morsel of life for the bearer and those around him. For years, we had no name for it and very little info...now the disease comes to the front for attention. Tooo many folks are coming up with this aliment of unknown source...

  2. Donna, I can't thank you enough for all of the kinds words and for putting my blog out there for all to see! Slowly but surely I'll get my name out there. And it doesn't help to have good friends who know a lot of people!

    Bookie - I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. Crohn's is such a hard disease to diagnose that people will easily go years without knowing what they have. Please feel free to join my blog and vent about anything and the same goes for your husband. I wish you both good health.

  10. Thanks for the tip - I'll go visit Rebecca. I had a friend who had Crone's - it was very debilitating for her.
