“Five Years in Heaven” Has Become a Fun & Inspiring New Canvas For Me…

IMG_2182
It’s been such a pleasure to not only share the story told within the pages of FIVE YEARS IN HEAVEN: The Unlikely Friendship That Answered Life’s Greatest Questions, but to also use my hand-drawn inscriptions as one more way to inspire and connect with readers everywhere. I’ve been honored and humbled to be able to send a few hundred more guardian angels, hearts, stars, forget-me-nots (inspired by “Chapter 4: Forget-Me-Not”), and even Blitzen’s paw print (in honor of Sister Augustine’s calico co-star) out into the world.

There have even been special and very touching requests, such as the grandma from Iowa who asked me to draw a hummingbird in the book for her daughter whose 8-year-old son passed away from cancer. And a black and blue butterfly inscription that fondly reminds a woman of her late husband.

Below is a sampling of the inscriptions so far.

To order a copy of FIVE YEARS IN HEAVEN with a hand-drawn inscription, please call the Benedictine Gift Shop in St. Marys, PA, at 814-781-1019. They will ship anywhere in the U.S.

If you already have FIVE YEARS IN HEAVEN and would like me to inscribe it, or you would like a signed bookplate for it, please send the book or request to me (with a S.A.S.E.) at: John Schlimm, 479 Brusselles Street, St. Marys, PA 15857.

ENJOY!
