Knoxville, TN, December 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With southern country charm, Tennessee author Denise Mansfield has warmed the hearts of the literary world by writing her first book, Warm Hugs for Dark Nights and publishing it on lulu.com, the online marketplace for digital content.
As the economy crunches and military activation increases, author, Denise has a great compassion for those suffering from lonely nights due to death, divorce, military deployment, empty nest, etc. Denise takes the reader from light hearted humorous laughter to the deepest emotional tears as her pen shares the honesty of dealing with ordinary life in the midst of life’s battles. She shares as well, her experiences of traveling interstate 40 across the wide state of Tennessee as she commuted from her hometown in West Tennessee to her current home in the hills of East Tennessee.
Freelance writer, and former media editor, Renee Phelps of Remington College comments: “Denise’s unique, down-to-earth style takes the reader along beside her, as she travels the racing highways and winding backroads of a life well-lived. On the way, she takes us back to places we thought were lost forever... when we actually saw things in the sky other than stormclouds. When clouds were for sleeping and the stars really were winking at us....and when a beautiful sunset was really worth pulling off the road. From tears of despair to tears of laughter, her stories include one recurrent theme ... that God is everywhere.”
Denise also includes stories about her family as well as song artists; Jayc Harold, Greg McDougal, Lance Christopher and Nashville auctioneer, David Pruitt and how they deal with the challenges in their own lives, turning obstacles into opportunities as God touches others through them. She features Christian Country Music Artist, Jayc Harold who understands all about Dark Nights. His personal story and how it prompted him to create his Album "Hard Times" is included as well.
For years Denise has pampered and encouraged those who crossed her path while experiencing difficult times by giving them special care packages. She has now created a gift box that she makes available on her website. These gift boxes full of “Warm Hugs for Dark Nights” along with a few creature comforts also include her book as well as Jayc Harold’s album, “Hard Times”, warming a multitude of lonely and troubled hearts.
