My book is now available for sale in my createspace eStore! You may use the link on my sidebar, or simply click this link to order:
Because of Katie

If you would like to buy the book on Amazon, it is available there now via this link. It will also be available in Kindle format soon!

If you would like to buy the book from your local bookseller (such as Poulsbo's own Liberty Bay Books),
it may take a few weeks for the title to become available there.

I'm thrilled that Liberty Bay Books will host a book-signing on Friday, March 2nd at 6:30 P.M. at The Loft Restaurant in Poulsbo, Washington. I will give a brief talk, answer questions and sign books afterward.
If you would like to come early and eat dinner at The Loft, they feature a happy hour and wonderful menu. The book talk and book-signing event will have a no-host bar.
Books will be available for purchase at the event, and afterward at Liberty Bay Books.
Please spread the word, and join us!

Can you hear me screaming and jumping up and down for joy?

Oh, how utterly fantastic and exciting! I'm going to head over there now and get me a copy -- and tomorrow I'll link to you on my Friday Surf Report (my best of the web and other reading). I'm so proud of you, Karen. It's just amazing and terrific.

Wish I could pop some champagne in your honor right now - but it is only 7:30am. ;)
Look forward to celebrating with you in person soon!

Congratulations Karen! What a great accomplishment that will bless many.

Karen said...

A-MA-ZING!!! You did it! I am so proud of you for taking this on, (the most tender subject ever) then working on it for over a year (or so), and then actually finishing it, then publishing it, and now a book-signing party! It's a reality now, in black and white on real paper. I so wish I could be there. I would be SO celebrating you and toasting your courage and stamina and faith. Bravo, my friend. What a great moment this is.
I cannot wait to get my copy in the mail and start reading.
All my love on this great occasion.

I left a comment a few days ago, and not sure where it went to here in cyber space, but thought I would try again, letting you know that I will certainly buy, what is sure to be, a beautiful testament,to a beautiful life. Overflowing is lessons of unwavering love, courage, grace and profound faith.

I just ordered your book from Amazon after reading Elizabeth's glowing review. I follow her blog religiously and have been anticipating her thoughts on your book. I can't wait to read it and I hope it accomplishes all you hope for.

I read your profile on Amazon and was pleasantly surprised to discover that we live near each other. It is always nice to hear about published writers living in this area. Gives me hope.

I'm tickled pink through and through. Congratulations! You are courageous and inspiring. I read Elizabeth's review, and am even more eager to read your tome than I already had been. I wish I lived close enough to go to your book signing. Alas, I will just order through the mail. Karen B.
