7 Quick Takes Friday

Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday. Before I get to the Quick Takes, I wanted to mention that this Monday, April 30th, I will be on EWTN’s Son Rise Morning Show at 8:50 a.m. talking about “The Spiritual Consequences of Sterilization.”

1. For a limited time only: my bestselling novel, Stealing Jenny, is only .99 on Kindle!

2. I am still in awe of the fact that I have “fans” and I receive “fan” mail (below). In fact, since last year, when I began selling over 100 e-books a week, the fan mail has been frequent, mostly positive and at times, emotional. Many of the letters come in the form of e-mail, others arrive as letters.

3. Plans are under way to travel down to Nashville in July to attend my sister’s first profession of vows and receive her black veil. We are all so proud of her and her decision to join the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia. The photo below was taken last September during my visit to the St. Cecilia Motherhouse.

4. I’m finally getting the knack of Pinterest and I’m having a great time “pinning” all sorts of things to different boards I’ve created. Of course, like any social media, it can be addicting, so I’m limiting myself to five minutes a day. If you are on Pinterest, please consider following me: http://pinterest.com/ellengable

5. One of our earlier cartoons entitled “Cease Fire.”

6. In a few days, both my youngest son and myself will be celebrating our birthdays. Paul was my favorite birthday present 13 years ago. Below is a photo of my oldest son and youngest son 13 years ago.

7. Great article on NFP and Marketing: “Truth in Advertising: How We Talk About NFP.”

  1. Ellen, This is my first visit to your blog! Jean Heimann is a facebook “friend” and posted your book, “In Name Only.” I can’t put it down! I’m 1/2 way through. As an orthodox revert to the Church, I am always looking for uplifting cultural indulgences, friends (real life or online), and influences to help strengthen the journey home. Thank you for nurturing your gift and adding to our culture with this entertaining, and uplifting work! (Looking forward to finishing it b/t work, taking care of my 4, and almost 2 year old, house, husband and gestating #3 due in Nov). God Bless, Your sister in Christ!

  2. I just got your book! I think I was drawn to your site because I have been needing a new good book for a while now. And great idea to post following info about pinterest. I am following you now as well. Glad you did QuickTakes and I found you there!
