New Beads, Tucson & Studio's next Get Together...


Hello all, hope your year is off to a good start...our life is good, I made some beads, Grace and I are going to Tucson & at our next get together at the studio we will be making beads for Beads of Courage...all of these things are great & I will give you more information on all of it later in this post...However...

The big news this week at our house is that my brilliant husband has published his first book, Jerusalem Syndrome on Amazon.com for kindle readers, pc readers & apple readers...which can be downloaded from Amazon... this is so exciting, Martin wrote this books years ago, when I met him he had just finished it...he shopped it out to a couple of print publishers late Aug 2001, after the tragedy happened on Sept. 11, 2001, one of the more famous publishers send him a hand written note explaining "that although the idea was awesome & original, the post 9/11/01 environment was not the best time for this book, as the story starts with a riot on Christmas eve in Jerusalem...The story is a Sci Fi / Horror Novel that happens in our time, so they call this kind of book Future Science...I am giving away a download of this book to the first person who makes a comment on this post...Shameless plug I know, but he is the love of my life & the book is a great read.

Speaking of being published, one of my Flower Implosion beads made it in to the Flow Magazine's current issue of Women In Glass...

Congratulations on the book! What a great accomplishment. :D
I hope you have a great time in Tucson. I've always wanted to go to the AZ show, but have always been busy with work schedules. I've heard that it is amazing!
Sorry to hear about your ceiling! It sounds as if no one was hurt, so that's a blessing!
Take care,
Gail

Congratulations to your husband.

Jelveh, I like your thankful attitude even when things go wrong-like a water leak and a collapsed ceiling.

Hello dear Jelveh,
Congratulations to you, the veteran publisher, and to Martin. I will spread the word to my Kindle reader friends. Have been so busy with the new baby, haven't done a lot of work lately but plan to start back up when our weather breaks, we've had so much snow and ice this winter and we still have a month to go. Our little man is so precious Jelveh, my daughter had a very hard time going back to work. He's starting to recognize people, talk baby talk, and giggle. He's our gift that we intend to cherish every day. I wish I was close enough to take your classes, those close enough are so fortunate. Love the new beads.......the fuschia,turq, and caramel set is sooo cool!
peace, take care
