Have you ever thought of writing? A book, an article perhaps… Something that would make a difference. Something that might inspire, challenge, bring encouragement or hope?
I started writing stories as a child, and trained as a technical writer in my twenties – but it has taken me a long, long time to actually submit anything for publication.
And now, this! The very first article I submitted was accepted! It will be published as part of a wonderful inspirational anthology called A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider: Words to Stimulate the Mind and Delight the Spirit, available May 2011.
Don’t miss it!
Each of the 37 contributors is Canadian, and each article has a truly Canadian ring to it. Some made me laugh; several moved me to tears. I loved them all!
“So… how do I get a copy?”
What is particularly exciting is that World Vision (the charity well-known for its emergency relief work and child sponsorships) will receive 30,000 free copies, for distribution at their Girls Night Out and Couples Night Out events throughout Canada! Why not check their websites to see if the tours are coming to your neighbourhood?
In any case, if possible, please support your local Christian bookstore by asking them about A Second Cup… and reserving your copy there. If this is not practical, you can pre-order the book online, for example on any of the Amazon websites, including Europe and the UK. Simply go to your local Amazon website and search for “hot apple cider book”. If you buy a copy of the book this way, please remember to write a (nice) review afterwards…
Special note! The book will come with a free Discussion Guide, easy to print directly from the Hot Apple Cider website – as is already the case with the other anthology by the same editors. This is ideal for group studies or discussions. If you think your small group would be interested in using the book in this way, contact the publisher – there are discounts for bulk book orders!
