Diane Sawyer, Mini- Newsletter/Blog #38 November 2017


Hello everyone. Thank you for downloading and reading my mini-newsletter for November, 2017. I sent out my very first newsletter-blog in November 2012 and many of you have been with me ever since. Countless others have joined along the way. Thank you one and all. You deserve a Thanksgiving joke. You don’t hear them very often and maybe this one will show you why. It came from my computer friend, Barry. Here goes:

A young man named Ron received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Finally, Ron was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. Ron shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and more rude. Ron, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total silence. Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, Ron quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly walked out onto Ron’s outstretched arm and said, “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and action. I’m sincerely remorseful and will do everything I can to correct my unforgiveable behavior.”

Ron was stunned at the change in the bird’s attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke up very softly. “May I ask what the turkey did?”

Now for some dramatic news about my writing. Here is a 2-minute video with my publisher Terri Gerrell (Southern Yellow Pine Publishing) to celebrate the signing of a contract for my seventh book, Trouble in Tikal. There was no rehearsal, no plan. The camera man, a fellow author, pointed at us and we “were on.” It was a very exciting and fun time in St. Petersburg. Many people were there, books were everywhere, the sun was shining, a cool breeze was blowing. To see the video, please click on the following site. (If you wish to return to the site, please note there are no spaces between Diane and Monica and Sawyer.) After you click on, scroll down a short distance to where Terri shares the video on my timeline.




Finally, check out Terrie’s site, Southern Yellow Pine Publishing:   SYP Publishing.com

You will find wonderful Thanksgiving Sales at 40 % off most books.

Look for my next newsletter in late December.

Thank you!
