Wifey and the Warchildren

Oh yes, that's right. I had forgotten that I was sort of about books and stuff. So, here's some news...

Judith Blimey O'Reilly has a new book out. Not only that but she has a very sleek promo video to go with it. It tickled my fancy and I thought you might like to see it, but the wotsit won't go in the thingiebob and make YouTube come to me (don't call me technotwit) so here's a straight link -

Wife in the North

Hah, good, eh? Now buy it.

Oh yes, and this one arrived....


I'm about halfway through this wonderful book (and yes, I did read my own, page 112 - cringe) and can honestly say that none have disappointed and quite a few have made me go 'wow'. Peacharse and co have good taste and this is a discerning collection of short, and really short, stories from all over the world.

Under the premise of 'Whatever you've been through, you're not the only one' - this book is helping to raise funds for Warchild.
  • 66% of people who die in conflict are children
  • 1.5 million children have died in wars in the last decade alone
  • 4 million children have been disabled by war
  • 10 million children have been traumatised by war
We can help in small ways and your coffee breaks will be brighter - so BUY A BOOK

Go HERE to purchase

Might I promote my own? It's been an Electronic book for several years and can be purchased at Barnes and Noble or maybe Amazon.com.

Shards: A women's anthology.

:)

You can download it for about $5.00 and proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Fund.

Not a penny for moi...but who cares when it comes to a worthy fund!

Congrats on getting into this one. A worthy cause indeed.

But I'm confused by the term 'coffee break'. Does that refer to the brief minutes in the day when you stop drinking coffee and start working?

Isn't that video a corker! Good on Judith!

And good on Peacharse for the Warchild book - fair play!

Promote away, Roberta. Perhaps if governments would stop feeding wars then we could all look to supporting our health services - in the meantime....


Debi - coffee break refers to all those times when work just won't do.

Yay, Babs, all credit to Peachy and co, no mean feat putting a book together, especially one that is filled with a hundred or so bloggers all jostling for position!
