Things For You
Last year, the nice folks at Potter Style (a division of Random House | Crown Publishing) asked if I’d be interested in a little project. They needed 365 playful and romantic journaling questions for couples to answer, together. Could I do it?
Well, gee, let me check my calendar. Of-course-oh-my-goodness-YES!
That little project became a beautiful book called Our Q&A A Day: 3-Year Journal For 2 People. It is now an Amazon bestseller.
It’s absolutely lovely, and I hope it brings you + your sweetheart many hours of joy.
“I bought four, one for my husband and me and for my children and their partners. It is very simple to fill out a sentence a day, and it is a lot of fun! I am looking forward to comparing three years!” –Diane Standish
50 Ways To Say You’re Awesome is another book that I wrote.
It’s full of love notes that you can tear out (the pages are perforated) and hand to people you adore.
This book might be small, but it packs a big message:
It’s a daily reminder to say “thank you” to the people who brighten your world — not just with words, but with your actions, too.
“If you are looking for a creative way to make your grandmother’s heart swell, bring a big smile to your best friend’s face, or give a stranger a memorable and delightful surprise, look no further than this book.” –Kate Stoltzfus, Yinzpiration.com
“The perfect book to help us all express our thanks and gratitude” –The Huffington Post
“Franzen’s taken the work out of giving praise — but not the heart.” –Minnesota Monthly
“A creative way to thank the great people in your life.” –PsychCentral
I’ve collaborated with not-so-tortured artist Kent Youngstrom to create a line of inspiring wall art.
These limited edition prints are priced at $35 each, printed on archival paper with water-based inks, and sized at 18 x 24 inches.
We hope you’ll hang them in your home or office, and remember that “your dream is delightfully do-able.”
Oh, hey! Here’s a collection of free writing tips + scripts. Why not?
: How to introduce yourself to anybody. (It’s a workbook!)
: Oh, and … look! A collection of surprisingly-not-awful-looking e-cards. Send one to a friend. They will smile.
