Angels for Christmas!

Guardian angels, warrior angels, humans acting as angels. Angels protecting us, guiding us, never leaving our sides ... stories reminding us of the Angels Among Us. Angels Among Us, an angel anthology by Write More Publications, features 15 wonderful angel stories by 14 fabulous authors from around the world, celebrating the angels among us. 

Angels are among us guiding us, leading us and protecting us daily within our lives. Sometimes we see them, but most of the time we don’t, as they prefer to give the glory of their actions to God. Whether seen or unseen, angels are still with us, leaving their marks upon the Earth in our lives and hearts, and spreading the love of God. This book is dedicated to all the angels out there who intervene within our lives, and also to those humans within our lives that serve as Earth angels in their own way. 
Thank you, Angels Among Us. 

Now, how is that to set the holiday mood? I went on a Tweeting frenzy for Theresa Oliver and the 13 other contributors to this fabulous anthology. Here are the organizations I Tweeted to: Campus Crusade for Christ, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, the Newman Center (a Catholic social group designed for college aged people), Catholic radio, the Fish radio station and several churches including Methodist, Unitarian and Presbyterian. I also Tweeted to Doreen Virtue, author of many Angel books.
Now there are promotions that Theresa Oliver et al. can do locally to help spread the word about Angels Among Us: 
Number one: Seek out a Catholic school and any Christian school in your area and ask to do a reading from the book at an assembly or in a classroom. If you have a Catholic or other Christian college in your area, ask to give a reading. NOTE: Don't forget Campus Crusade for Christ and I.V. Christian Fellowship. You could read a story from the book at one of their meetings or parties.

Number two: Seek out any singles groups in churches (Church websites often have a listing of social or life groups) such as Singletarians and offer to do a reading from the book and talk about how the book "came together" at one of their events.

Number three: Seek out a Christian or New Age bookstore and ask if you can do a reading there and maybe raffle off a copy of the book.

Now Theresa and contributors...on your mark, get set, GO!

I will be following up on the results of these promotions in a future blog.

Do you want to be featured in my blog? Let me know. I am only an e-mail away.
