Finally settling in Fitchburg, Massachusetts

It has been an ordeal that I don’t ever want to repeat. Cleaning out a house, basement and garage of  a life time of accumulation is enough for anyone to learn the lesson, “Less is Best.”

The computer, phone, printer and copier are all ready to go now. I joined a writers group at Fitchburg Senior Center. They are happy to produce a book of their writings and are satisfied with that. Me, I like marketing and getting my books out to the public. Not sure how long I will spend with the group. I am ordering The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book, my book, to send to Michelle Darmanin, Australia. She lovingly organized  an event for authors to contribute children’s books for an impoverished school at Viwa Island, Fiji in 2012. I can’t say enough about Michelle and her husband Michael. They have been unselfish in orchestrating the project with contributing authors from not only Australia, but from the United States and other countries also.

Michelle is starting another book drive for other schools on Viwa Island.

“Michele Darmanin…she has done a wonderful job/project in providing books for the Island of Viwa-(Yasawa)…now Michele and her husband and some of her friends are embarking on similar project on a bigger scale…with your help and your friends help,we-(all of us) would hope to donate a book-(or two or three or a box would be greatly appreciated)…that combine would add up,and Michele is targeting some of the Schools in Fiji that has never received any assistance in terms of Library books…kerekere…get your fingers working and ring up your friends or share this post on FB,Twitter,LinkedIn,Google+ or other social networking sites you have your friends in….Vina Du Rixi”

If any of you authors out there write children’s book, you may wish to contact Michelle directly through Facebook. We know that children’s education is what can lead to a better and more successful life. Let’s put our hearts into having a hand in making the world a better place for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Be well Butterfly Woman Publishing friends where ever you are.
