  • Charlene Gorda Costanzo is an award-winning author, workshop facilitator, wife, mother of two adult daughters, and grandmother of twins. She holds a B.A. in Philosophy from St. Bonaventure University and an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. Originally from New Jersey, she has resided in New York, Texas, Arizona, and Florida. During a one-year book tour to launch The Twelve Gifts of Birth, Charlene and her husband enjoyed living in an RV in 48 of the 50 states. The Twelve Gifts collection of books began in 1987 when Charlene wrote The Twelve Gifts of Birth as a life message for her own, then teenage daughters. Twelve years later she published the book and discussed its message in schools, shelters, prisons, churches, and hospitals throughout the United States. The Twelve Gifts for Healing was written while Charlene was in treatment for advanced non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2001. “Cancer led me to examine my convictions and look at these life gifts more deeply. Truly, they helped me heal,” she says. The Twelve Gifts in Marriage comes from the ups and downs, ebbs and flows, and hurts and healings that are a part of every long-term marriage. The Thirteenth Gift is a novella that celebrates the wonderment that dwells in our hearts and helps us to see the world with reverence, gratitude, and joy. Touchstones: Stories for Living The Twelve Gifts offers true tales that demonstrate life’s gifts at work in everyday life. Charlene loves to read, write, hike, swim, dabble with paint, travel, and meet and talk with readers. Please feel free to write and tell her how you came upon The Twelve Gifts messages or ask any questions you may have about The Twelve Gifts. If you would like Charlene to speak or present a workshop in your community, let her know about that too and she will explore possibilities with you. Most of all, right now, she loves to play with her grandchildren and to create ways for all children to better recognize and appreciate their inner gifts and resources. Helping children of all ages to build inner strength and self worth is the intention of Charlene’s work.

  • E-fiction A relatively-recent phenomenon is the commericial (for-profit) "self-publication" of strictly- or primarily-electronic fiction under the banner of longtime "E-tailers" such as Amazon. This is NOT a vanity press as the author doesn't pay for the privilege of publication: they invest only their time and effort, and the "publisher" is merely a retailer who takes a percent-of-sale, not an up-front fee (in effect, the authors are paying for the publisher's "retail channel"). It might be likened to an author mill in some ways, but due to the low costs all round (and the lack of any guaranteed "vanity market" of the authors friends/family), it appears to be a different phenomenon. This is LIKE Web fiction, but usually offered via Amazon, Lulu, or the like, typically for low entry price (e.g. 99¢ per chapter for a novel, etc). Authors who are popular on fiction forums sometimes make the jump to professional writers (albeit untraditionally so) in this way. The topic is too-briefly mentioned as a minor element of the existing article Self-publishing#Electronic_.28E-book.29_Publishing, but appears to merit its own entry, as modern electronic means have enabled a sea-change in the older concept of "self-publishing." See:

The term "E-fiotion" (that I've chosen) is perhaps overly-broad for the topic (the phrase connotes both commercial and free fiction) AND overly-narrow (the same model might apply to non-fiction); I note that "e-pub" is already in use, largely in the non-fiction realm. "E-fiction" might be useful as an umbrella for linking all these related topics. No other phrase has occured to me, that might concisely describe this phenomenon (and therefore be apt for titling an article). Feel free (obviously!) to use any or all of the (over-long?) text above in the process of creating a proper Wikipedia article.

Hoffman Reynolds Hays "Hoffman Reynolds Hays was a poet, translator, novelist and playwright, an historian of anthropology and zoology, and a teacher. Some of his twenty-two books, reflecting the diversity of his interests, were the pioneering works in their fields. His The Dangerous Sex: the Myth of Feminine Evil, served as respected source material for Feminist writers. Sir Julian Huxley regarded Hays’ popular history of zoology, Birds, Beasts and Men, as a classic of its genre. His translations of the poetry of Brecht, Vallejo, Borges, Neruda, and many others were among the first to bring these major twentieth century writers to the attention of the English-speaking world. His plays were performed on Broadway." (Sandy McIntosh: Remembering H. R. Hays. )



She also writes for a blog: where she shares recipes, crafts, projects, ideas, product reviews and other things moms find useful.
