From a broken heart to... a BROKEN HEART and a giveaway
Do you remember when Angela Ackerman asked us to help her friend Martha Ramirez? She was going to have heart surgery for a birth defect. Angela asked us to send her cards or heart things, or just send her some words from your heart.
Because Angela is such an amazing caring woman, a large number of us responded to her request.
After Martha recovered from her surgery, she reached out to me (maybe more than just me) and we became friends.
I had the privilege of helping her working on her book, BROKEN HEART this past year. I think it is a wonderful book, for if you have a sibling or even a cousin in the hospital for any disease or illness. It has coloring pages at the end of the book, lots of links for information about heart diseases and disorders. It even has a spot for the child to write or draw about his or her special memories.
I'd love to see this book in pediatric and cardiologist waiting rooms. Such a helpful book.
I'm going to give away a copy of BROKEN HEART on January 30th. (PS: I'm in the acknowledgements! If you are looking for a freelance editor my site is: http://www.themanuscriptmaveneditor.com/)
Did you join in in Hearts for Martha? Did you connect with her afterwards? I feel so blessed to have her as a heart. Though she had a broken heart, she has a very tender caring, now fixed, heart.
If you would like to win a copy of BROKEN HEART please join my blog and please tell me of a time you had a broken heart...
If you don't win a copy and would still like one you can go here to purchase a copy.
Happy 2015! I hope all your dreams come true!
