  1. I love your writing, and I'm glad that it comes from this place. I have fallen behind in my Deep in the Far Away chapters, but I look forward to catching up soon. I say, keep doing what you're doing! Xoxo

  2. Sarah, I found this very interesting...how and why you write what you do. I can tell you write from your heart, I feel the passion...in your characters, the way you write, the words you choose, the links you share, even your blog designs...

  3. how you write is why i read you, and why i love you. heart stuff feels strong and fragile all at the same time.

  4. You're writing is so beautiful sarah, it always touches me. I feel the love in your words, like it makes them shine. I wish again that I could buy your books as paperbacks, so I could hold them in my hands and look at those beautiful pictures, really savor it all. I find it a little tiring to read on the computer, so I converted your books to kindle, but then your lovely pictures were black and white.

    1. Thank you Anne. That problem with the photos is why I dont make my books available for Kindle. They do translate to tablets (when read in landscape view) but Kindle doesn't allow for the font I chose, the layout I chose with specific design and reading considerations in mind, and also the photos don't work.

      So people do print the books off so they have a hard copy. I wish I could have them printed as proper paperback but that would add a massive production cost which (a) would drive the price right up and (b) would spoil the point of the books, which is that they're fundraisers :-)

  5. Yes. I understand. I need to get myself a tablet, and also print out your lovely words. I don't think it cost anything to get printed books though, hmm, or at least not a lot. I think when you sell them the company takes a little bit of the profit. It seems very easy now to self publish, even printed books. But I understand that these are fundraisers. Thank you for writing, and the beauty you share.

    1. Unfortunately it does cost quite a bit, at least the quality options I checked out, and also is quite an involved process for design etc. Then there is the matter of postage. I did consider it a couple of times and decided it was beyond my budget, and also would cost more than most readers would be willing to spend. Plus the books are not-for-profit, so a printing company taking some of the funds would water down our purpose, alas. Otherwise I would definitely do it as I'd love to have my books available as hard copies. <3

    2. Oh that's sad, that it's so expensive :( Thanks for explaining it to me. I will make my own little book I think.

MY BOOKS

In the quiet hours, the inbetween moments and the half-light, I sometimes like to write. My books are made from fairytale shadow and old magical songs. They speak about dreams, lost wishes, longing for something beyond the self, and always about love. You can learn about them here.
