Halifax Author Debuts Series of Children’s Bible Stories

I'm so pleased to announce the recent launch of Lily’s Secret, in celebration of The Feast of the Holy Family. Author, Cindy Tingley's first children's book tells the story of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, a little differently than usual. 




Lily’s Secret is the first in a series of children’s bible stories told from the perspective of Lily, the pint-sized donkey who carries Mary, heavy with child, to the manger where Jesus is born.

“What better time to launch a children’s bible story than immediately after the Christmas season?” asked Tingley. “When amidst the bluster of holiday shopping and office parties, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of the celebration and that it’s not just about one day.”

Lily’s Secret is the story of a little donkey named Lily, who has a secret. One day Lily is visited by an angel, who tells her of a child, a Saviour, who will be born, and Lily is the one chosen to take his mother, Mary, and her husband, Joseph, to Bethlehem.

Lily is frightened because she’s been told she’s too little to do anything important. She draws strength from her faith and overcomes her fears and self-doubt, to safely carry Mary and Jesus, the unborn child, to their destination, and beyond.

Lily’s Secret was first written almost 10 years ago but Tingley felt the timing was right to re-launch a revised edition of the book in preparation for her series.

“I hope Lily teaches people that no matter what the circumstance, no matter what life is throwing at you, no matter how small you are or how impossible it seems, things can always work out,” said Tingley.

Author, Cindy Tingley

Lily’s Secret is available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble or can be ordered through local retail bookstores. For more information on OC Publishing visit www.ocpublishing.ca.

Author Interview: Jack Scott, Turkey Street and Perking the Pansies

This week I'm so thrilled to welcome Jack Scott to Writing...Just Because to share his author journey and a few words of advice. Jack is the author of  Turkey Street - Jack and Liam move to Bodrum, the sequel to the best-selling memoir Perking the Pansies - Jack and Liam move to Turkey.
Here's a little taster of Turkey Street...
Six months into their Turkish affair, Jack and Liam, a gay couple from London, took lodgings in the oldest ward of Bodrum Town. If they wanted to shy away from the curtain-twitchers, they couldn’t have chosen a worse position. Their terrace overlooked Turkey Street like the balcony of Buckingham Palace and the middle-aged infidels stuck out like a couple of drunks at a temperance meeting. Against all the odds, the boys from the Smoke were welcomed into the fold by a feisty mix of eccentric locals and a select group of trailblazing expats, irresistible ladies with racy pasts and plucky presents.
Hop aboard Jack’s rainbow gulet as he navigates the choppy wa…
