Hi Everyone! No, I haven’t disappeared off the planet. Sorry I’ve been MIA lately! I’ve been a busy girl!

I went out to run the writing class in Hamilton yesterday due to the other facilitators being ill or busy and found out from a couple of the women there that the book the group has published is now available on Amazon!! I was so excited! I wanted to include a link to it and update my about me page as well because quite a bit has happened since my last update that hasn’t been put on there 🙂 Be sure to check out both!!

You can purchase the book here: http://www.amazon.ca/dp/1469732572/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_asp_nckgD.0DF413E

ALL proceeds go to support Womankind, a center for Addiction, Mental health and shelter for women needing to leave other unhealthy situations.

I have 9 poems in the book! Yay!!!!! 🙂 I’m a published author now!! 🙂 omg!!!!!

I’ve been doing a lot of writing that isn’t making it onto this website because it’s quite personal writing and I’m not sure if I’m ready to share it with everyone just yet. That’s still to be decided. We’ll see 🙂

I’ve redesigned my business cards and decided there will also be another website update in the near future as well. I am going to be making a main author webpage and this one will now become my secondary one devoted to just my poetry. So updates like this one will be moved over to that site once it’s up and running. Stay tuned! I’ll let you know when it’s ready 🙂

Also, I’m now offering this as a service that I’ve been helping people with if you are interested. Feel free to drop me a line and I’d be happy to do a quick consultation with you to find out your needs and see what type of customized and integrated website/social media solution we can come up with for you! I look forward to working with you! andiekins@gmail.com

I’ve also been going to poetry slams in Burlington and the GTA which have been boosting my writing skills and confidence. These have been a wonderful and exhilarating experience! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend you go to one near you as soon as you can! They are a different atmosphere that’s for sure with lots of excitement and energy overflowing with friendly welcoming people.

It seems there’s never a down day over in my neck of the woods. With the warmer weather there’s always something to do! My creativity is overflowing lately and it’s hard to keep up. It’s a good thing though, and I’m always grateful and enjoying it. Thanks again for all your support! The site is close to reaching 2000 views now thanks to all of you who read it!! I never thought that’d be possible 🙂
