Gifts - Re-Released


Remember the book Gifts that I was able to contribute a story to? It was published in Nov and available to order through Amazon. There ended up being some problems with the printer/publisher - they just weren't producing quality books so production was stopped.

Woodbine House decided they wanted to publish the book and Martha Sears wrote the foreword on the 2nd edition.

Gifts will be available in July, but they are now accepting preorders.

For those who weren't reading my blog back in Nov and have no idea what I'm talking about, you can read my previous post to get the scoop about this book and what it means to me.

I know Chelle ordered the book back in Nov and finally received it - she said she's enjoying reading the stories. They're very touching aren't they?

I'm so excited for this book to be re-released now!

The book sounds great and it is nice that production was stopped and a better quality is going to be reissued.

I purchase a book that another blogger recommended and was dismayed at the poor quality.

So exciting that an excerpt is from you! Congratulations!

Okay, I'm going to have to track this book! I'm sure it's excellent, especially if you're a contributor. :)

Thanks for commenting on my wavering post. As always, I appreciate your friendship and support.

I will really need to order it! It looks like a fantastic book.

Rikki said...

The book sounds awesome. I went to pre-order it, but they don't ship overseas, and the contact address for Europe doesn't seem to offer the book. What a pity....

Tammy said...

Wow, that is wonderful and exciting!

Susie said...

Sounds like a wonderful book. I can't wait to pass this on to friends of mine and get a copy myself.

I will definitely be ordering this! How great your story is in there - I look forward to reading it.

Oh is there a special link to buy it again? I asked for it for Xmas but nobody bought it for me :(

I'm gonna go buy it for myself this time!

Jen said...

I got one of the original releases and just loved it, even though it was falling apart! Such beautiful stories....

Barb said...

Will this book be available in book stores or just on line, Michelle. I'd love to own this one.

Linda said...

How exciting that you had a story published Michelle! I'm proud of you.
It sounds like a book I would love to read. Let us know when it becomes available.
Thank you for your wise, inciteful comment. I love hearing from you.

I have a gift certificate for Amazon, and can think of nothing better to use it on!

I can't wait to read it!

Catch said...

I remember when you talked about it...why I never ordered it is beyond me, when there is a story in it about a little cutie I see everyday on a magnet on my refrigerator! So many people have ask me who she is....and everyone agrees....she is absolutely beautiful!

Momo said...

I am very curious to read it..hopefully I will be able to buy it...this taking into account that most of the shops online don't accept our cards!

Sounds like a beautiful book. To work with Down Syndrome children/adults is one of my dreams. I have a huge place in my heart ready for that when the time comes. I look forward to reading the book.
