Welcome to the launch celebration of Storyformed.com, and the new book, Caught Up in a Story!

UPDATE: The book is ready after all! Go HERE. Thank goodness!

It's going to be a grand few days. We'll be celebrating today, Wednesday, and Thursday, so be sure to check back often for fresh updates and info, and be sure to enter the daily giveaways. 

About a year ago, almost to the day, I began work on this website and book. The concept had simmered for years in the back of my mind, but a few radical decisions and plot twists in the story of my life opened up a space of time in which I could actually work to realize my vision. To see this website and this book on the power of story come to completion, and to have the delight of finally sharing it all with you, is a triumph and a gift to me. Thank you so, so much for joining me here. It's going to be a lovely few days of celebration!

For starters, I wanted to say a personal hello. Watch the video below and hear a little more about my vision for this website, then scroll on down to find out where to get the new book and discover our giveaways!

First, Caught Up in a Story is ready to order! Go HERE to get your hot-off-the-press copy.

In the meantime, we'll be giving away three copies of Caught Up in a Storyeach day. Second, we'll be giving away some beautiful pieces of artwork and jewelry provided by friends of the Storyformed project. I'm so delighted by these lovely gifts that I'm almost lost for words.

Today, we'll begin with a giveaway of  two handmade necklaces crafted by the lovely Susie at Charms and Blessings. Here's her description of these whimsical pieces:

Words to live by: Read, Dream, Imagine.  These three words are hand stamped on a heavy 18 gauge, one inch beaded pewter disc (or, for the second, three hand-stamped silver bars)~ accented with a wire wrapped pearl.   The natural properties of pewter give this necklace a beautiful antique finish.  Hung on an 18 inch sterling silver chain.

Just take a look:

Also, check out the new content in the Library and peruse the new Book Lists. And check back tomorrow to see what fascinating finds I've culled for the Research page.
