Exciting news- Giorgie has arrived
Finally the first copies of Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner have arrived for checking and approval. Once this is given they are taken from the printing platform to the publishing platform at Ingram Spark for print on demand publishing. Approval will be given this week and the soft cover and hard cover books will be available to purchase from all the online bookstores and through my own website bookstore at https://joanederrick.com/store/
It was a very exciting moment as the story has been getting great reviews from people who had read the manuscript. The book, when it arrived and I held it, was a big surprise as the energy field in and around the book was just so strong I could actually feel it! I got the most overwhelming feeling of love vibrations as I held the book so I hope everyone else will also feel the same.
The back cover text of Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner
Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner is a sensitive approach to nature’s way.
In the second of the series, author Joan Derrick introduces us to Giorgie’s guide,Astara, and her intuitive voice, which shows us how everything in nature gives a gift of itself to another.
What is unique about Joan’s book is that she brings simple wisdom to the understanding that everything is connected. By encouraging young people to tap into the energy and gifts around us, Joan empowers children to clearly see the web of life that holds us together, and that everything has its place and purpose.
Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner represents the next generation of children’s books and is a special gift to parents, whose busy lives, hopes and aspirations for their children make Joan’s offering an essential tool.
A preview of Giorgie’s story
Guorgies is a small girl, dreaming of Christmas only two days away while she is on her way to feed the chooks ( chickens to everyone not Australian). She unexpectedly came upon the cranky rooster who she secretly calls Mr. Rooster. She got such a fright she threw the bucket of scraps and ran for the nearby tree which she climbed. As she looked down she remembered hearing her father tell her uncle he was going to have the cranky rooster for Christmas dinner. She felt weird as she was afraid of the rooster but did not want him to be Christmas dinner. Her angel Astara came to tell her how everything in nature gives a gift of itself to another…
It is with gratitude that I acknowledge Arts Queensland and the North Burnett Regional Council’s RADF committee for the funding which fast tracked this book to be published now.
