Made It By A Nose

BookCoverImageIt’s here! Yes, it took me another year to complete but the paperback version of My Father’s Nose has just been released on CreateSpace.com. It should be widely available on Amazon.ca by the end of the week.

Thanks to everyone for their encouraging words with this ongoing endeavour. It’s certainly been a labour of love – as all creative projects are – with the added bonus of learning new computer programs. Fingers crossed, the next book won’t take as long!

Happy Birthday Dad – didn’t think I’d get it together on time, but here it is. Hope all is well with you in the great beyond.

A Day For Celebration!

I’m very excited and pleased to announce the launch of my first children’s ebook, My Father’s Nose. Now available though Amazon’s Kindle Store (see http://tinyurl.com/jp545g9 and amazon.com/author/shartmann). I hope to have other formats available soon and will let you know when that happens.

51OosWASH+LWhen I was doing the upload the other day, it occurred to me that my ebook would probably go live on Aug. 3, which was my father’s birthday. I thought that was an interesting coincidence. It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since my father passed away. When I did the math, I figured if he was still alive he would have turned 77 today. Funny how we get caught up in our lives and then all of a sudden some realization like this comes to you and gives you pause for reflection.

While it was certainly not planned or part of my intention, somehow through some serendipitous coincidence the date and lucky numbers lined up. For many people, the number seven is considered auspicious – let’s hope it’s an omen of good things to come!
