The book that took 21 44 days to create, publish and put on-line for sale... thanks for your help (and special thanks to Tamara and Erin at TLC Graphics for this book's cover and beautiful interior).
I am on my way to Marseilles this morning. French Word-A-Day will return on Wednesday.
Before I leave, I wanted to ask you a big favor, or un grand service...
Would you please order a copy of my book Blossoming in Provence? At $14 it makes an economical and educational gift for yourself or for another!
Packed with vocabulary and insights on French life, this "memoirette" is now available at Amazon.com. Please click here to order a copy or two! (Check out Amazon's free shipping offer, when you order two copies.)
Mille mercis for all of your support and encouragement and for your help in getting the word out about this "little book that could". It may not yet have made it to the top of the hill, but the climb, in itself, is exhilarating.
P.S.: My book is illustrated with over 30 black-and-white photos, including the one below. For those who asked for color (it would have driven up your purchase cost to more than twice the price), I hope you will agree that images chosen for this book were made for black-n-white!
"This is at once a Francophile's indulgence, a travelogue, a photo-journal, an occasional diary and a learn-French blog. It is also the 'happily ever after' of a love story and who can resist that?" —Sushil Dawka
Thank you for ordering a copy of Blossoming in Provence here--and for helping spread the word about it by forwarding this email (or post) via Facebook or Twitter. I am very grateful your help!
