Thank you for having me on your blog today, Amber! Greetings everyone! My name is Beth Ann Masarik, and I am here to talk to you about a new book called Writings From the Heart, Stories and Poetry From Around the World. This is a special anthology, in that all proceeds are going to the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of NY, which is a part of the North Shore/Long Island Jewish health system. I am donating the proceeds to the pediatric cardiology unit.
Because 28 years ago, I had open heart surgery, and to celebrate my life, I wanted to do something good with my writing and publishing talent. I single-handedly coordinated this project, and I even designed the cover myself. It’s always been my dream to be a publisher, and this was the first step to test my skills.
There is a new program in the pediatric cardiology unit that was started by my cardiologist, Dr. Scott Pilgrim. This program helps transition young adults into the adult cardiology program. I feel that not only is it important to help children, but it is also important to help young adults as well. All money made off this anthology, will be going towards research and education for this new program.
The anthology is available in all formats through createspace, Amazon, Amazon.co.uk, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Smashwords for all other formats. The paperback version is $13.00 (to represent my open heart anniversary), and the e-book is $4.99.
Thank you again Amber, for having me on your blog today, and thank you everyone for reading! I hope you will help support this wonderful cause. I have provided links below for purchasing.
