Part of being an author is that I need to promote myself and the book. This makes me terribly, terribly uncomfortable. If you could see me right now, my teeth are clenched and my neck is all tight and my shoulders are hunched up around my ears with the strain of it all. No, wait. We can do better than that. Here’s a picture; don’t I look strained?

I will probably regret posting this picture for years and years and years.

Well, part of being a grown-up is putting on your big girl pantaloons and getting the job done, so here we go. This is one of the first of many shameless plugs for There’s a Green Plastic Monkey in My Purse. But here’s the exciting thing–if you go to the publisher’s website to order it, I have a super secret little code that will give you 25% off (assuming you live in the US or Canada). Wow-wee! I do love a bargain.

Here’s what you do: click this link to Discovery House Publishers, and use the promo code AUTH002 when you go to checkout. Click that little arrow next to the promo code box, and 25% comes a’flying off like butter on a hot skillet. Isn’t that easy and wonderful? Voila! A book at a discount! Or 100 books at a discount, if you’d like to get your Christmas shopping done early this year. (I told you this was going to be a shameless plug.)

Wait, wait, wait. I can see that some of you are reluctant to plunk down your hard-earned money to buy a book that might not suit your fancy. Well, we’re in luck. Here’s another link to a sample of the book. There. That should set your mind at ease. This sample even includes the quiz, which is one of my favorite parts of the book. You can take the quiz and determine if the book is for you before you buy it–handy, right?

In all seriousness, I appreciate you all more than I can say. Your comments and encouragement and readership are a blessing to me, and I do not take any of you for granted even one day. Thank you! I hope the book will be a blessing to you, just like you have been to me.

In Christ,


“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14)

    When I come into some extra money in the next week or two, I will definitely order your book.

    Or, you could just beg your library to order it for you. 🙂 That’s what I do when I’m out of money and need a book. Try batting your eyelashes a little–it works on my librarians like a charm.

    Yes, yes I will. We were thinking of coming to visit you all sometime soon. Might as well have a reason!

    Good luck with the plug. I hope that is not the picture you chose for the jacket though it is memorable.
    Maybe, you could provide a summary of the book. I’d like to hear more about it.

    Nope, not the book picture. It took me about ten tries to get it right this morning. 🙂

    Funny. So, maybe a post that gives a summary of the book.
