We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Programming...

..to bring you this news bulletin. For now, my domain (www.wordmagix.com) points here, to Adventures in Japan. But eventually, though this blog will continue to exist, the domain itself will be for my freelance graphic design business. In the meantime, you might get momentary breaks from Adventures in Japan for announcements like this one.

The big news--drumroll please! The Book is at the publishers!

For those of you who don't know, I've been helping a blogging friend with her new book. She trusted me with her witty, hysterically funny, occasionally poignant, brilliantly written words, and I put together a layout and book cover. Yes, she's in New England and I'm in Japan. The cover photography was done in North Carolina (by Dad, a professional photographer), the illustrations were done in California, and the proofreading was done in Colorado. Truly an international (and electronic!) project. Perhaps one day, we can all meet face to face--other than Dad and me (of course), the rest of us have never met except via cyberspace. Hey, maybe can meet on Oprah!

Motherhood is Not for Wimps is at the publisher now, and should be available (we hope!) on Amazon.com and via Liz's website by December 1st. Visit Liz's blog at www.damomma.com and bookmark it-- you won't be sorry! To see the book cover, click here.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled Adventures.

Just dropping by from Liz's blog. I love her book cover! Great work!

I'm a Navy wife as well. My hubby was in Sasebo for a deployment and I was able to visit him out there. I didn't expect to, but I loved it there! Hope you are enjoying your time there.

Carolie said...

Thank you for stopping by, Joy! I love being in Sasebo, and consider myself lucky to get to be here. I see by your profile you're in NC--and my home town is in the NC mountains! It's a small world, isn't it? Stop by to see me again!
