A Season To Remember

Spring Fever
Are you ready for spring?  I sure am. Warm long days. Cookouts in the park.
Children blowing bubbles. Jazzy music playing. The smell of smokey BBQ in the
air. Laughter and support. Getting up-to-speed with family gossip and collecting
a new recipe or two. Expressions of thankfulness for all of our progeny and
bounty. Brenda and I so look forward to this seasons festive gatherings. It
draws us even closer together.


The New Family Reunion Planner Keepsake Book
It has been an eventful winter preparing for spring events. As said in our last
newletter we proudly published our first edition of The Family Reunion Planner
Keepsake Guide & Workbook. Planners who prefer to work from a softbound or
hardbound book while keeping a journal of planning highlights are now able to do
so with the turn of a page. And all the planning worksheets and guides are still
there. Just updated and more user friendly.  In addition the book is available
in PDF ebook format. That means you can do your notetaking and journaling using a PDF editor and print out worksheets as needed. The updated PDF version is now in the software application as well. Just download it from the Familiy Reunion Planning download center if you own the download or CD version.


Our New Distribution Service
It has been sometime sense we updated you regarding our distribution service. As you know for a time Google checkout has been handling all of our online sales and I have been doing all the printing, binding, packaging and shipping by hand. Not anymore. With orders having doubled since 2009 and a projected 25% increase this year we've entered a partnership with Lulu.com, our new print-on-demand, shoppping cart  service and distributor. Lulu has been a loyal printer, publisher and distributor of books and ebooks since the turn of the century. That said orders will be filled more quickly and the product will be promptly packaged and shipped from the distribution center.

Even better you'll soon see our event planner at Amazon.com as well as Barnes & Noble.
