Very Special Announcement on Wordwalk

Very Special Announcement on Wordwalk


by Alice Jane-Marie Massa



When I wished upon the star which was the blaze on the forehead of a horse that was drawing a Christmas carriage, my wish did come true!  My wish for my first published book did come true this week!


On this first of December, Leader Dog Willow and I are especially happy to announce that I have written a small book entitled The Christmas Carriage and Other Writings of the Holiday Season.  On Monday night, I was able to order “author copies” of my book; then, on Tuesday of this week, links were added to my author’s page for ordering both print and e-books.  What an exciting kick-off of the holiday season!


On my web page (author’s page), you can see a sneak preview of the book’s beautiful and festive cover; then, you can see the horse with the star on its forehead which I mentioned at the onset of this blog post.  (Many thanks to Cindy Kennedy-Lesky for the perfect cover photo for my book! Her website is also on my author’s page.)  Additionally, on my web page, you can read the table of contents page, the blurb on the back cover, a sample of the book, and my “author’s bio.”  For more information about my book, you are cordially invited to visit my author’s page at:

For my friends and Wordwalk readers who are blind or visually impaired, please be assured that this web page is very accessible–thanks to David Dvorkin who created the author’s page for my book.


While the web page contains links for ordering copies of both the print book and the e-book, if you are a longtime, regular reader of Wordwalk, you may have already read most of the pieces in my 101-page book.  However, perhaps, you may consider giving this “gift book” as a holiday present to a family member or friend who may enjoy the topics and style of my writing that you have come to know through this blog.


After you check out my new author’s page and/or read my little book (six inches by nine inches), I hope that you will send some of your comments to me via the comment section of this blog or the e-mail address on my author’s page.


Knowing that you will have my book on your bookshelf or in your hands is an amazing gift to me this Christmas.  As you can probably imagine, this book is a dream-come-true for me; and I appreciate your sharing in my “book dream.”


Happy holiday reading!

Alice and Leader Dog Willow


PAW-SCRIPT:  Willow wants me to add that her photo is also on the author’s page.  When I was working on my book, Willow was very patient–and as sweet as ever.

  3. Reblogged this on Abbie's Corner of the World and commented:
    I’ve already purchased this book from Smashwords. Since I’m an avid follower of Alice’s blog, I’ve read most of the material in it, but it’s worth reading again.

    Congratulations, Alice! I’ve ordered the Kindle Edition and know I’ll enjoy every story. Wishing you great success!
