Last year I wrote a story about a Monterey Pine that wanted to grow up to become a Christmas tree. The response to that story was heartwarming for me as a writer. Many of you encouraged me to make it into a book.
And that’s what happened.
With whimsical illustrations by Terrie Yeatts, a video, some sound effects, and a beautiful song by Alex Khaskin called, “Journey of a Lifetime,” our little story, “Longings of a Monterey Pine” is now an enhanced e-book on Apple’s iBooks. The additional media will bring an extra delight to the children in your life or the child within you, keeping you busy and warm on a cold winter’s eve.
For those of you who are regular readers of this blog, I’d like to thank you for all of your comments and words of encouragement you’ve given me for the posts you’ve read here. Because of you, the story of the Monterey Pine goes into the world now, and has a life of its own.
The Monterey Pine thanks you.
And I thank you too.
