If it isn't fun . . . then you're not doing it right! 

Well, Dear Readers, I have survived the birth of the book. Exhilaration and exhaustion in equal parts. But it's been fun and we've done it up in style!

So this newsletter will be brief, but I wanted to let you know that ~ I've been thinking of you and send wishes that your days be filled with love in any and all of its many manifestations.

We're happy to report . . .

Who says the Goddess is Dead?

A rumor has been going around that, at a recent conference in the publishing industry, one of the speakers who is from a major publishing house blithely announced to the audience that "The Goddess is Dead, the goddess craze is over, and we won't be publishing any more goddess books because there's no market for them."

Phssst! is all I can say. Let the fireworks begin....

We're proving them wrong! The book's arrival has had an enthusiastic response to our partners'  promotion (special pricing, bonus gifts) and the Goddess Goodies Giveaway. They are still going on through the month of February.

Thanks for all your support. If you haven't already, take a peek ......

The feast days celebrated both love and the founding of Rome. A pagan priest led the festivities which included his "whipping" all the women to ensure their fertility.  

Another part of the celebration involved a "lottery" in which the names of the unmarried females names were drawn from a hat (or other suitable container) by the available young males and they were "paired" for a period of time, some say a year.  This pairing, of course, being done in honor of Juno, the goddess of love and marriage.  (Juno is the Roman equivalent of the Greek goddess Hera)

Which brings us to the story of . .

In closing,

Remember to . . .

Love courageously,
  Laugh outrageously (and often), and
     Let some fireworks into your life.

Till next time,
