To celebrate getting over 100 "Likes" on my facebook page ( www.facebook.com/Arietta.smallsongs ) I ran a prize draw give away,to win a signed copy of my latest book "Circles of Sacred Laughter"
Everyone who entered had their name written on a piece of paper and then all the names were folded up...
The names were put into my baby cauldron
And I got to pick out a winner...
And the winner was..............
So a signed copy of my book will be winging it's way to Cindy ASAP.
I am grateful to everyone who took the time to enter the giveaway and for those who didn't win you can still pick up a copy from Amazon :)
So, that's my Sunday... Now off to snuggle on the sofa for a bit with my family, a cup of tea and a movie before hitting the books again this evening :)

Please show your support to my fellow writer and artist friend Romany Rivers
She is using Kick Starter to help get her book published...
This book chronicles a very personal journey through the years overcoming severe bouts of depression and consequently creating a more holistic and spiritual lifestyle. The chapters Red Letters, Return to Sender and Addressee Unknown reveal periods of depression and anxiety; anger and healing; and acceptance and spiritual growth. The words in these pages were not written for mass consumption. They were not artfully crafted for reading aloud in dim rooms to a soundtrack of clicking fingers and Parisian style applause. They were not intended as political statements or a way of reaching other wayward wandering souls. Over the last two decades they were poured, purged, scribbled and spat onto scraps of paper, napkins, backs of hands, into empty pages and blank spaces of other books. At times of sorrow, frustration, confusion, acceptance and joy these words made sense of the minds muddled meanderings. Within these pages you will find heart breaking, heart healing honesty that crosses the divide and touches the souls of others. Now is the time to share this honesty. Now is the time to open pages and breathe new life into whispered words. I gave this project my heart, but it is you, dear reader, you are the one who can give this project life.
So much has been going on here at Small Songs HQ... Following the successful launch of "Circles of Sacred Laughter" I have been hard at work to get "Little Lizzy Witch" published but we have had some trouble finding a compatible illustrator and so it looks like "Lizzy" won't be out I time for Yule but I am confident that you will be able to read the first of her adventures before next summer.
Whilst I continue my search for a talented illustrator I have also been keeping myself busy by reading, reading, reading! The reason for all this reading is that I am now reviewing books for other people and you will soon see the first of those book reviews very soon.
Those of you who want more regular updates from me might also like to "like" my Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/Arietta.smallsongs ) where I have been posting snippets of my poetry and art work and running regular giveaways!
Until next time...
