Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Chicken Soup for the Soul…Christmas for the Spirit

Coming This Saturday, December 11th: “Chicken Soup for the Soul, Canned Soup for the Body!!!”

Linda O’Connell, Becky Povich, Teresa Sanders and I will be signing books this Saturday from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Main Street Books for the second year in a row. Last year was such a good time. Be sure to bring a canned good to donate to the local food pantry! A publisher accidentally sent me an extra carton of books that I was told I could keep, so I will also be giving away free books (as long as they last) with a purchase.

It’s worth a trip just to see Main Street St. Charles (Missouri) this time of year. Come out and get into the spirit of Christmas…and of Chicken Soup for the Soul!

  1. Tammy---I wish I could drop by, but I will be at a Purina event for Love a Golden Rescue all day.

    Have a lot of fun. Maybe someday I will get something published, and can join you...

  2. I wish I had known (not that I would drive in snow) I have friends that live the in O'Fallen. Good luck with the canned food drive. I sure would like a free book... :)

    Wanted to answer your comment. There are few characters on my blog. Ms. Twister is my house/room mate. If you go under the category friends, find a post called "Support An Artist," it is about her mowing the grass.

    Thanks for the comment and good luck with the book signing.

  3. Hey Tam! Thanks for posting about this. I hope to remember to do so on Friday! Gotta keep our fingers crossed for good weather, like last year. I heard we might get RAIN....that won't turn into snow until later in the evening! Blah!

  4. Good luck, girls! Hope the signing is a resounding success!


  5. Man...you, Linda and Becky all in one place. (Sadly, I don't know Teresa.) Wish I could drop by for a visit. Georgia's just a tad far for a drive by, though. Enjoy your day! Sell lots of books!

  6. Good luck, Ladies. I'll try to get over there, but I never know what's going on with the kiddos' schedules, and weekends are usually wild. And I'm praying for good weather.

  7. Hi Tammy, Just posted something about this event from Linda's blog - I would have linked this too, but I couldn't get your blog to come up when I was posting. Oops. Hope you have a great event!

  8. Sioux, I love those Goldens, too! Save them and join us next year! :)

    Funny, Jules, we are right near O'Fallon! Thanks for explaining about the people on your wonderful blog!

    Becky, I'm keeping fingers crossed about the weather, too!!! :-o

    Thanks, Pat!!

    Lisa, I wish you lived closer, too. Then again, I have a feeling we could all do some damage...! Thanks for thinking of us!

    Thanks, Donna!! Hope to see you if you can make it!

    Lynn, looks like you added mine later. Thank you so much again for helping to spread the word! That really was very generous and thoughtful of you! :)


Any return "messages" are appreciated!
