My Very First Review!!! The Note By Mike O'Mary

The Note By Mike O'Mary
ISBN: 978-0-9825794-0-4
Pgs 88
                                                                                     5 out of 5 Hearts

           "One of the most beautiful and powerful things any of us can do is to let other people know they are appreciated. A simple not of appreciation can change the recipient's life. Equally important, showing appreciation and sharing your positive feelings with others can change your life."

           'The Note' By Mike O'Mary is based on a true life event. you get to learn quite a bit about Mike. From his family troubles as a child/teen, to the awesome relationship he now shares with his baby sister, Sharon. She is the one responsible for this book in the first place. For one Christmas, she decided to write Mike a hearfelt note about an important memory they shared. That one note has changed Mike's life, so he decided to share this life changing event with all of us. This book is basically a how to guide on writing notes to important people that you may have forgotten. It reminds us that a note doesn't have to be super long to effect the person it's being sent to. Also, he pushes for hand-written notes over electronic ones, saying they tend to mean more to the recipient. He gives examples of excuses people give as to why they don't write them (too busy or they already know how I feel), the 4 steps to show someone how you feel when you write a note and examples of special occasions to do so. Such as weddings, graduations and funerals. 

        "Every note you send matters more than you can imagine."  - Mike O'Mary

You never know when that one note you send could change that person's life. Just like Mike's.

      I received 'The Note' from a giveaway on Good reads. As I read this fantastic book, I felt the urge to write notes of my own. This is a great read for those who are trying to find a quick read, as well as, a meaningful one. It's not often you find a book that is so small, but packs such a powerful punch. 

   Mike has started a website to help with notes called:
or the blog at  http://dreamofthings.com/category/blog

         On it he has more information and advice, gift books, gift cards, free e-cards and videos that can be shared with your friends and family.

Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:


I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.
