New E-Book — Life Is a Gift

Just published with Amazon e-books, Life Is a Gift is a series of 30 short, upbeat essays about life with the Norwegian Artist, the Progeny, and the rotating assortment of animals on the studio farm.

Drawn from a compendium of Middle Age Plague essays, Life Is a Gift enables readers to relaxedly enjoy Carolyn Henderson’s writing on their e-reader — compatible with Kindle, IPad and IPod.

Images of the Norwegian Artists paintings highlight each vignette.

The first in the Ordinary Life Is Beautiful series, Life Is a Gift is a great gift itself for anyone who wants to start, or end, the day with a smile.

Follow the link on the image to look at the book on the Amazon Kindle book page, and look inside to read the first two chapters, free.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Carolyn! πŸ™‚ Susan

  2. Thank you, Susan! I’m working on the second volume, The Jane Austen Driving School, and hope to have it out within the month.

    I’m very happy to see this! Congratulations. If you like I’d be happy to add the book to Goodreads.com and LibraryThing.com – hopefully give it a bit more well-deserved exposure.

    • Stewartry: I would LOVE that!!!! Please let me know anything you need to make this easier — links, images, etc. I am 100 percent dependent upon the good will and wishes of individual readers to pass on information about my book, and I am profoundly grateful to everyone who does so.

      Thank you for your kind offer and your encouragement — so very very much!

      Carolyn

        My pleasure – it’s up! I used the cover image above (saved and uploaded) and the book description from Amazon. Please let me know if you’d like anything tweaked or added! I’m a librarian on Goodreads, and I enjoy exercising my power in a good cause. πŸ˜‰

        I roughed out an author page for you on GR too – is the profile picture here ok for me to upload to that page?

        And can I just say again how tickled I am that you’ve put together some of your essays? I hope the book takes off like a rocket.

        • Both links look great — thank you SO much! And thank you for roughing out the author page — the profile picture here works just great. Do you need it in another form, or are you one of those remarkably clever and adept people who know how to just do things like this?

          Just back from an out of town gallery run and need to make raspberry muffins for tomorrow’s breakfast; another out of town day tomorrow as well. I look forward to some time at the computer to really look at goodreads.com and librarything.com — I have never encountered these sites before and would love to know more about them.

          Thank you so much for your encouragement and support — you bring a smile to my face and heart. — Carolyn

            Again, it’s very much my pleasure. I’m all set with the picture – I just saved it to my computer and uploaded it to the site, and voila! No cleverness required. πŸ™‚ Actually, I do need to find some cleverness somewhere – Goodreads is attributing a whole bunch of books to you suddenly… Hm.

            I can set it up so that Middle-aged Plague posts to GR as well, if you like.

            Raspberry muffins sound wonderful …

            • this would all be lovely indeed! I followed the links on our names, and although I have the same name as Carolyn Henderson the writer about horses, I am not that person. is there a way to link my name to this site? And Steve’s to his site — http://stevehendersonfineart.com/ — ? If my Internet will quit cutting out (is it hot? does it want the air conditioner on? I”M functioning; why can’t it?), I can make these changes next week by signing up and bumbling around on my keyboard.

              You are so wonderfully gracious, and I appreciate everything that you are doing. Thank you!!!!!

            • stewartry says:

              Internet = finicky. Harumph.

              OK: I figured out how to shift all the horse books to Carolyn (space space) Henderson, rather than you (Carolyn (space) Henderson). I put the blog on your page, and the Norwegian Artist’s site on his page (and lifted the “about the artist” onto Goodreads) (and swiped the profile pic from Facebook onto GR – please let me know if any of this is not ok!)… Off to set up the author profile pages on LibraryThing!
