Check out My Podcast I read a New Poem By Marten Hoyle

This morning on my podcast I read a poem by a friend of mine titled Dandelion. It is a very deep poem and I asked that each one of you who listens to give me your interpretation of the poem. I give mine on the podcast. I want to apologize in advance for the rudeness of my little Maltease who decided to bark throughout the entire podcast. He was barking at his imaginary buggers. I guess you could say he was listening to the voices in his head! Anyway, my friend’s name is Marten Hoyle he can be found on facebook. He is an author and will soon be releasing his new work. So friend him, get to know him. Also if you have not yet checked out all of my podcast please do, leave comments, they are very important to me. And if you are an aspiring artist and would like to see your work out there, I will be happy to promote for you- read some of your work on my podcast and just generally help you get started. The same for those of you who are already out there. We are only as successful as we allow others to be.

A New Five Star Review for Pennies From Heaven

Pennies From Heaven was penned by several contributors many who have never been published before they were asked to just write their stories which they did- Grief is no respecter of persons it comes to us all. It is how we deal with it that matters.

Pennies From Heaven

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving compilation, September 27, 2013
By Ashley Fontainne “Ashley”
This review is from: Pennies from Heaven (Kindle Edition)
Losing someone you love is a burden each of us must face during our lifetime. The manner in which death appears does not lessen the pain and heartache that yearning for our loved one leaves inside us.

Just as different as the patterns on a snowflake, each of us differs slightly in how we deal with the loss. Grief stems from our internal thoughts, memories and coping skills. Some grieve longer than others. Some learn to let go quicker and move on with their lives.

Some never do, lost inside the unending sorrow, their wounds too deep to ever fully heal.

This collection, written by people from all different walks of life, explores the painful journey of losing a loved one. Each person deals with their loss differently, yet there is a common thread throughout all the stories.

Love. It never ends, never fails and, in the end, always prevails.

ABOUT ASHLEY

Award-winning and International bestselling author Ashley Fontainne is an avid reader of mostly the classics. Ashley became a fan of the written word in her youth, starting with the Nancy Drew mystery series. Stories that immerse the reader deep into the human psyche and the monsters that lurk within us are her favorite reads.

Her muse for penning the Eviscerating the Snake series was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Ashley’s love for this book is what sparked her desire to write her debut novel, Accountable to None, the first book in the trilogy. With a modern setting to the tale, Ashley delves into just what lengths a person is willing to go when they seek personal justice for heinous acts perpetrated upon them. The second novel in the series, Zero Balance focuses on the cost and reciprocal cycle that obtaining revenge has on the seeker. For once the cycle starts, where does it end? How far will the tendrils of revenge expand? Adjusting Journal Entries answered that question: far and wide.

Her latest work, a short thriller entitled Number Seventy-Five, touches upon the sometimes dangerous world of online dating. Number Seventy-Five took home the BRONZE medal in fiction/suspense at the 2013 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards contest.

Look for Ashley to delve into Christian fiction in late 2013 with her exciting thriller The Lie.

On Death and Grief

Pennies From Heavan

Pennies From Heaven

Death comes to all of us sooner or later. It is as much a part of life as living. Because death is an unknown we do not know how to handle it when we lose someone we love. We have a hole that will not close. We feel a loss that will not leave. We feel anger, hurt, sadness, denial and many other emotions. We are not taught about death and grief because as human beings we live in denial. If we don’t think about it – then it will not happen. Or it happens to others not us.

I have been dealing with death since I was a child. People I loved have been dying ever since I can remember. Thankfully I had parents that taught me not only about death but about grief. They were wise enough to teach me that every one grieves differently- everyone has to find their own level of acceptance. (Some never do) –

Pennies from Heaven is about death and grief. It is not the usual how to book- Those are a waste of time. Pennies from Heaven is stories gathered far and wide written by others who have been there. Some who fell into the abyss and had to find their way out. It is not a book about making people “get over it”. One never gets over a death- one only learns how to move forward with the hole in their heart.

The beauty of this book is this- not only is it filled with stories of death and grief it is filled with stories of those who have gone on – being near those left behind. There are stories of beloved pets who have crossed over to Rainbow Bridge- Yes, I included those because they are a part of our lives- we love them and when we lose them it is painful- It does leave a hole in our hearts.

I highly recommend this book- It is not morbid nor is it hand slapping funny. It is a mixture of emotions much like we feel when we grieve. If this little book helps just one person learn to move forward while holding on to those memories which are so dear it will have been worth it. I know it has already helped the story tellers to heal.

Pennies From Heaven will be released in the next two months. I will post as soon as it hits the market.
