Draft one of From the Heart
I shared this photo with you here on September 2nd. At that time, I was beginning the process of sifting through over 1000 letters looking for the stories we will publish in From the Heart.
I have been very touched by the input I have received from readers of my blog and updates on my facebook page - thanks for all of your help!
After reading each and every letter I have saved, I was able to select close to 100 stories from a collection of letters, cards, e mails and journal entries capturing your thoughts about your own Comfort Heart.
A few days ago I shared the first draft of From the Heart with CBCF and following several draft changes and updates yet to come, the hard work will begin - the editing and layout of the book.
Our (your) book is taking shape and I wanted to share that with you. The price I pay for asking you to submit your stories when I first wrote about From the Heart in September is that I continue to receive your stories and unfortunately we won't be able to use all of them. I am sure you will understand and I am hopeful that you will be happy with the final result.
I am hoping for a spring or summer 2013 book launch but it is a bit too soon to confirm that. Stay tuned, and thanks so much for your continued support of the Comfort Heart Initiative and of From the Heart.
