I have been doing a lot of work on improving my book, both the inner and the cover. The closer I came to put it back up for sale, the more I began to wonder what happened with those who have read a copy. I have not had much feedback. Well, next thing to show up on my computer was a message that just came through from friends in New Zealand. The part relevant to my book is shared with their permission.
“I think the cover picture is very good and don’t think you need to add anything more. The quote by Albert Einstein says it all! You’ve done an excellent job.
I enjoyed your story and gleaned much from it about OT which I never knew. After my lumber disc operation (many years ago!) I was just told not to bend … a bit difficult going through life without bending!! Anyway, I’ve been to chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and naturopaths over the years, had treatment, but I never learned what I should or should not do, or how I should do something to avoid injury. Never once was I referred to an OT.
Good luck with your book. I will certainly pass it on to others to read. Thanks for sending us a copy.

The message came just in time. It certainly has given me the motivation I needed to push forward with marketing and promotion. I am happy to say that my book is back up online and available for sale. So for those who are wondering what occupational therapy is, here is your chance to find out.
After doing some further editing and improving of my book promoting occupational therapy the book is finally back up for sale. I am very grateful to be gradually beginning to receive feedback on the book. The following review has just been emailed to me.
“A well presented book taking the reader on a journey of learning.
From the first page to the last a fountain of information set down in a way that requires little effort from the reader to garner complete understanding.
A charming memoir of an occupational therapist, that not only is an obvious asset to her career but also a staunch humanitarian as well.”
~ Dr. Gary Seymour
Please help me to decide whether to add this review to the letters of approbation within the book or to place it on the back cover. You can post your comment in the comments below.

We’ve had a lot of fun with setting up our Give Away on Good Reads. It’s been very interesting to watch the numbers of potential readers grow and to discover how many are interested in our children’s book: “Tuvia Finds His Freedom” by Eliyahu and Shoshanah Shear.
Since we are new to setting up a Give Away, it took a while to figure out how to obtain the information of who the winner is. Sadly the email sent from GoodReads did not get to us, however … I am very excited to say that we have obtained that information and have shared it in a short video here
I hope you enjoy the video. If you have not yet obtained “Tuvia Finds His Freedom” or one of our other books or products, you can visit the page of our books. Stay tuned for a new website that is soon to be launched on which you will be able to purchase and / or order our various creative items.
The Give Away that we ran on Good Reads for “Tuvia Finds His Freedom“, for a week has now ended. It has been very interesting to watch the numbers grow. By the end of the campaign, we had 546 people enter to win a signed copy of this little book. Not bad I’d say! Quite encouraging in fact.
The winner has been drawn and I am waiting to receive the information from GoodReads to know who to send the book to. If you won such a campaign, would you want a specific message or just signed by the author? It’s rather fun to figure out what to write in the book.
I’m looking forward to seeing how this translates further. How many will mark the book as “wanting to read” it. How many will follow through and purchase a copy? For those who have not managed to win a copy, I have 4 copies still waiting in the ARR section to receive a review. If you are on GoodReads and part of the group: Making Connections, you could apply to receive a copy.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Give Away campaign. Congratulations to the winner!
