"I am constantly surprised at the stories that sneak up and demand to be written, as this book did. Rarely sleeping, always writing, thinking and creating for you, the reader, so that you can too be challenged, surprised and be carried away on an adventure. I appreciate the care and time you take when you read one of my stories and look forward to sharing many adventures with you." Thank you.

About the Cover Design:

The front cover of One Hundred Days of Giving is a photo of a lap quilt that my oldest daughter, Alison made. I took the photo and constructed the design of the cover. When selecting the design, I thought immediately of this heart quilt because of the care with which it was made and the sense of comfort and warmth it exudes. Wrap yourself with love and care as you read and be gentle with yourself as you embark on the journey of One Hundred Days of Giving - Kathy

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords and the thorough guides published on Smashwords gave me the confidence to make it happen. And, to make it happen rather quickly. Once my draft morphed into a book ready to go, all I had to do was lock myself into my office for the time it took me to read through the process, follow the instructions and hit the upload key. Even though I typically do not like to follow instructions, I found the instructions on how to publish your book to be very insightful and intuitive - and I was hooked. Knowing that I can publish a book anytime it rolls out of my brain onto the page is really exciting. I can't wait to get my next book uploaded and published - thanks Smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
One of the greatest joys of writing is to have written. I love the way I feel when I know I am ready to publish, when the words have ceased and the story is ready to be shared. Everyone has a story and it would be such a shame to leave this world with our stories left untold.
