Surviving the Wait

Some people have trouble waiting for three months to read the next Bellingwood book. I love that!

When that turns into a very creative set of poems, I find that it is imperative to share it with everyone.

Diane Wendt has written a daily reminder of things we’ve read about in the last nineteen Bellingwood books. These countdown poems are creative and wonderful! You will love this. I promise!

Download THIS PDF to read each of them in order – from Day 88 to Day 30. If Diane writes more between now and the release of Book 20 – Love’s Surprises – I will update the document after the book’s publication.

WARNING – SPOILER ALERT. Because these tell bits and pieces from all the books, these should be read at your own risk if you haven’t read Bellingwood books and short stories up to Book 19 – Boundless Dreams

Here are the first two:
