A New Year Brings With It A New Word…

As a writer, I find myself fascinated with the written word. Whether simple or elaborate, for myself anyway, words have the magical power to life a spirit up or dash that same spirit on the rocks of despair.

Last year we became well acquainted with words no one I associated with used in their vocabulary prior to 2020…




But this is a new year, and I would like for a moment to look back to at least 2017 when someone chose to use a word to create a wonderful, yet to be determined, destination.


It kind of describes my PAY A BOOK FORWARD year-long event.

I came up with this idea to share my love of books with educators, librarians, homeschool groups, and just any book lover as my way of supporting this KidLit community. What started out with a handful of purchased books, quickly grew into over 300 books bought or donated to FREELY share with others.

There will be a drawing run from the 10th to the 20th of every month for BONUS prizes like special autographed books, jewelry, and other goodies, along with at least 12-15 books beginning January 10th!

I don’t know exactly what other surprises 2021 holds for us, but you ALL will have a chance to come out a winner…

Of books.

Of BONUS prizes.


So who will go coddiwompling with me today? Come back Wednesday to see this month’s books and BONUS prize to be given away…
