It’s Getting Closer!

My next book’s book launch that is! Just spent the past half hour or so tweaking a press release and sending it off to several sources around town and posting it to my Facebook Author page Notes section. I have that section syndicated to several areas around the ‘net, so it’s a quick way to get news out.

I had planned on writing a post on Monday this week, but that didn’t happen. Mondays have been busy again, and regularity of blog posting has taken a back seat as a result. Between part-time work, planning the book launch bazaar and fashion show, and playing Mom’s Taxi for my daughter, life has been busier than intended.

Now here I sit, roughly 2.5 weeks away from the big day! Work didn’t call me today, but I found myself making phone calls and rounding up bed sheets for the runway instead. My living room is slowly filling up with stuff to take to the venue, and I haven’t even ordered a box of books yet.

But it’s all good. So far my health seems to continue a slow rate of improvement, which tells me I haven’t overdone it, thankfully. Praying that continues through Feb 8th so that my health doesn’t take a nose dive after the launch is over.

I just wanted to draw your attention to a small contest involving my profile over at If you look up Marilynn Dawson there, then review the hubs, I encourage you to pick the three most popular hubs and list them in a post about them on my author page on Facebook. The commenter with the closest guess will get an ebook copy of “Dressed for Eternity” on Feb 1st, one week before the book launch event.

You can find several hubs in a widget on the left side of the page here. Click the FB link on my hubpages profile to be taken directly to my author page once you have decided which hubs are the most popular.

Lastly, here is the press release I am sending out to places around the Kelowna, BC area. Feel free to grab it and share with your own sources.

What does a Roman Soldier, a Yemeni headdress, and the Bride of Christ have in common? Do gems, silk and honey have something to say together? What if the message of eternity was found in antiquity?

KELOWNA, BC CANADA January 23, 2013 – Marilynn Dawson, author of “Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey”, “Mom’s Little Black Book: Godly Advice for the High School Graduate” and “Practical Thoughts on Becoming an Author” releases her next book, “Dressed for Eternity” in February 2014. Through practical research into down-to-earth materials, history and workmanship, Marilynn draws some interesting parallels to character God longs to see in the Bride of Christ. Lovers of history, archaeology, fine jewelry, fine food, bridal attire, fashon, and faith are invited to join her as she makes forays into Egypt, Yemen, Canaan, Rome and ultimately, the New Jerusalem.

Marilynn’s book seeks to answer the question, “How does God adorn His Bride in the Scriptures?” At first glance, this question seems entirely scandalous, particularly to the protestant evangelical or charismatic Christian. But as Marilynn observes, the notion is not out of line with those who worship female deities or who place prominent women in eternal places. Analogies, conclusions, and questions face men as well as women in this very different and eye-opening book.

This book is now available for purchase from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chapters, Marilynn’s website, and other locations as well later in 2014.

She is hosting a book launch bazaar and fashion show at 6pm on Feb 8th at Evangel Church at 3261 Gordon Drive, as well as an online version at: starting at roughly 6:16pm PST. Vendors will feature various items discussed in her book, while models showcase modest trending clothing styles on the runway. There will be book readings, door prizes, and a mystery Grand Prize Basket to cap off the evening in both the offline and online events.
