Greetings Readers! Is it possible to meet someone on Twitter and find real common ground – enough to strike up an online friendship with true depth? Well, in the case of M.B. Tosi, I discovered it is possible. We crossed paths several months ago through a Tweet that led to a really nice and real Facebook exchange (real meaning I can tell she’s down to earth, warm and generous). So I asked her if she’d be my next guest on Peace Garden Writer and she agreed. Not only that, but she’s offered to give away a copy of her book, The Sacred Path of Tears.*
I like to keep these things simple, so just leave a comment and you’re automatically entered. I’ll announce the winner here two weeks from now on Wednesday, December 14.
And now for some words of wisdom from our guest!

Developing a Writing Theme by M. B. Tosi
Finding a theme is well worth the time it takes. For me, my writing has become more fluid and focused. By writing with a sense of purpose and following my goals, the words can’t flow fast enough. Writing has become a joy again.

* [From book jacket:] The Sacred Path of Tears is a journal written by a young Cheyenne Indian woman, nicknamed Mokee, during the Indian Wars in Kansas in the late 1860s. After Mokee and her companion observe the Sand Creek Massacre, they warn the other Indian camps along the Smoky Hill River. They take cover in a barn near Salina, Kansas, where they are discovered by a widow and her two sons. Mokee’s companion leaves to join the fi ght against the white soldiers but hating war, Mokee, with her lighter coloring, gains a safe haven with the widow’s family. She finds a mentor in the well-educated widow and embraces the opportunity to read and write English. As her life unfolds, Mokee is torn between two worlds at war and the two men she loves, one a white settler and the other her companion, who has become a Cheyenne Dog Soldier. Though war is her constant shadow, Mokee tries to find the purpose for her life and a path of peace in her war-torn world.
