I know, I skipped a couple of these updates. Lots of things fattened my schedule of things to do — like a couple of blogs on “A Healthy Woman is a Crazy Person.” And, of course, doing my best to get the word out about “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses.”

I’m happy to say the book has now accumulated 19 reviews. People seem to like the option of the Kindle version — certainly a lot less expensive than the paperback, which also is set at a pretty comfortable price.

I’ve also had some direct sales of signed copies. That could happen for you too if you send me a request, with your snail mail address, at The price is $12.95 + $3.00 postage (+ $0.81 tax if you are in Minnesota).

I’d love to cooperate with someone local who might like to have a home reading for the book. (and maybe my other books on forgiveness.)

As for the web site, it is still slow in the making. The talented man who is putting it together had to take time out for health reasons, and I’ve been slow in providing him the materials he needs. I hope soon he and I will be rolling along to the final accomplishment. Once that’s up and running, you’ll be able to order any of my books via that route.

I have sent out close to 100 postcards asking people to check out the book on amazon, and the reviews, and send me an e-mail at telling me they’ve done it. I gather from some of the personal reactions that my terrible handwriting is standing in the way — like people can’t read what I’ve asked them to do.

Anyway, I still have hundreds of postcards left if you have any great suggestions for me.

Oh, by the way, one of the time-consumers is “My Father’s House,” the fictionalized version of the biography of my father. Right now a couple of volunteers are giving me some great feedback on a sample of the first 27 pages. I’ve asked for people who are not of Swedish heritage and who do not know me to read it just from the point of view of seeing if it is an interesting read. So far, very helpful and positive reactions.

  1. I look forward to reading “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses.” in the future, I’m sure it will be as enjoyable as My Father’s House.

  2. It’s wonderful to read about the success of Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses. And, it’s fun to read about the things you are doing to increase people’s awareness of the book. It sounds like you are very talented at publicity and marketing.

  3. Mona, I love to see all the love you are giving into helping your work to be read. It’s so worth it. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to loving you for that:)
    There MAY also be a psychological/metaphysical reason why it does not fly yet: if we NEED something to happen, that needing energy makes it impossible – it’s a lot of PUSH in it. Why not state your intention that it is seen and loved and bought – that’s quite a different energy, not a pushy one – and then ask yourself “could I let go of the NEEDING? or – maybe just 1% of the needing?
    You will feel it physically. SOO good.
    There’s a great book about this process: The Power of Letting Go” by Patricia Carrington. I can’t count the miracles I have seen when i remember to practice what she teaches about letting go of the pushing and join the flow.
    oh! Now it is snowing outside- first time this season 🙂

  4. Ah Leelah, this is the kind of sensitive reply that reveals the thoughts of a good friend. I will definitely look into the book you recommend. Thanks.

  5. Happy for your reviews and sales, Mona. =)
