My books will soon be featured in many bookshops and libraries nationwide. I will make a stockist page for these venues when ready. You’ll be able to read my books in libraries and purchase them in bookshops all over the USA. I am beginning locally in Maine and New England, and then I’ll branch out. I might do some book signings and readings at local Maine libraries and bookshops. I’ll post about it here if I decide to do public events again. In future seasons, I’ll translate my books into several other languages and braille to sell in worldwide shops. Hardbacks, paperbacks, and audiobooks are available in my shop, as well as matching artwork and stationery. As always, I ship internationally from my online shop. I offer quick shipping options and use responsible materials. All products are ethically made in the USA. In the coming seasons, many new books will be released. I’m very excited to share these new loves! Check back for new treasuries, series, novels, and children’s books.
New: Instagram Shopping Account & Etsy Shop
In the Spring, I deleted my company Instagram account as it wasn’t serving me, but I’ve come up with a plan for my new shop account. It will help you to view and purchase my collections easily. My Instagram name is amormilagre. I am also working on a new Etsy Shop. I started off with Etsy many years ago, and it did well in that creative community. My new Etsy shop will feature a special collection of my art, books, and stationery. Once ready, the link to the new shop will be added to this site.
This morning’s Miniview answers a mix of some of your questions. They were the one-of-a-kinds, so I’ve grouped them together here. I will post another to answer one specific question soon.
Q: You mention the word ‘hope’ a lot in your books. How do you sustain hope during these uncertain times?
A: Yes, I love the word hope. To me, it means a possibility that we can choose and allow good energy to live, thrive, and spread. Hope isn’t a mere wish or just an idea. Hope indicates that peace is always there. We just need to choose it. Awareness and helpfulness are ways that hope blooms into a wonderful daily reality. Dream it and help it come true.
Q: When will The Love Letter Diaries books be available in audio? Love the books, but also want to listen in the car on the way to work. So calming. Can’t wait for the next volume!!!
A: Thank you! All of my books have the audio option so far, except the Leona books as they are the longest. I am still editing those files, and I will have that series available as a digital download audio option this winter at the latest. Thank you! They are my favourites as well.
Q: Are you still making organic cotton clothes? I’ve worn out that dress you made for me years ago. The cream one with the embroidery on the hem. We have some baby showers coming up and need more of those tiny outfits. Are you doing custom clothing orders still? I couldn’t find the option in your shop.
A: Thanks! Those were fun to make. I have sold out of that collection of the little suits and dresses, but a few graphic toddler tees are still available. I plan on releasing some new organic apparel collections after our atelier renovations are finished. I do have magical nursery artwork, stationery, and sweet children’s books available. They’re wonderful as gifts, and I can write a custom inscription, if you like. Message me! Thanks, Hannah. I do remember that dress!
Q: Who are the artists that work for you? I like the varied styles, but I cannot find their names. Can I order a custom size? I’m interested in the person who does the pastels.
A: Thank you, but it’s all done by me, Emmanuelle, aka Amor Milagre. I am the original and authentic maker of my collections and I sign all of my artwork and books for each order. Depending on my mood, and the medium, the pieces may look a little different. I don’t believe an artist is limited to one look, style, or medium. Charcoal drawings have a different energy than landscape oils. You move differently with a special posture and time for each, but they all build on one another. The same goes for books, music, sewing, home design, dance, and photographs. I like to explore different forms of expression. It’s just what comes out in that moment. What does your soul need? How? They are all connected though, by me. Yes, please message me for your specific custom sizes. Over the years, I’ve made tiny to gigantic pieces. I have many new pieces coming up! Thank you.
Q: How can I apply to work for your company? I am an art teacher, and I’m interested in what you are doing. Are you still holding classes? If so, I’m interested. I’m a bit rusty.
A: Thank you, but at this time, it’s just me. I have postponed all Amor Milagre classes and clubs until the pandemic is actually over. I might do a collection of video classes later on that customers can purchase in my shop. I was the only teacher when I held my classes, and I’m the only person in my company. I do all of the different stages of work for my company. I have plans for expanding my online shop to include a local New England shop later on. I’ll email you then.
As for the rusty part: Practice drawing every day. Begin again…as if you didn’t know any techniques or any art history. Use big, sweeping gestures to loosen up. Relax your wrist. Don’t think. Feel it, use your senses and intuition, let go of all expectations, and express… Use nature as your forever model and meditate there. (These are some of the things that I teach in my classes for all ages/levels.)
I encourage you to explore what you could offer in your own potential business. You can also teach online, make process/demo videos, sell your art, and teach/volunteer locally. Community centers and children/adults everywhere need good safe teachers. Building up a community of inspiring teachers and thriving students is important. Get involved in community projects…or start new ones. Support the arts. Thanks for your interest!
*This answer is also meant for any college students who asked if they could intern with me. We’ve been self-isolating to stay healthy, sorry! Hope you find that right fit for your credits. I know it’s not always easy to find. Stay safe!
I will answer more of your thoughtful questions later on in another one of my Miniviews (Mini Interviews).
In the meantime…
*Express yourself, paint with plants, and adore all of yourself. Love, ~ Amor Milagre
Today, I’m introducing Hoppy’s New Paperback Option, which is ethically and responsibly Made in the USA. Many more paperbacks will join the hardbacks and audiobooks in my Book Collection each season.
Hoppy Bunny gently teaches little readers how to use alphabet letters to invent nursery games and tell loving, kind stories with friends. Enjoy these sweet watercolour illustrations for a cozy feeling every time you snuggle up to read. Each letter of the alphabet is highlighted in a custom colour for that page.
A classic tale of the beloved toy friends in our Rose Cottage nursery makes for a favourite bedtime comfort. One of the infinite lovely things about children is the way they leave hilarious and darling scenes and surprises around the home. These pages capture a few of those precious moments when I happened upon a nursery story unfolding.
Hoppy Bunny practices mindfulness and shows how to take respectful care of all you have and love. This book was designed for all children, and it is especially inspiring for homeschool students who can use their surroundings and imagination to invent a story land of peaceful messages. Positive self-care practices are included as a loving guide to lead the self on a healthy path for a beautiful life.
A Gentle Life Book Collection: Peaceful, beautiful, healthy inspiration for a Gentle Life. Give the gift of Love & Peace by being Purely You.

Synesthesia often feels painful due to our polluted world. When there is a rare, open, quiet moment I can add some low music to the air and paint the sound energy. This is a truly beautiful release of expression! Let go….. and smile…
The homeschool portfolio has been sent in. The kitchen renovation is wrapping up. This coming year allows for more painting time. New artwork and prints will flow into my shop in the coming seasons. Many new books feature fresh pastel and oil painting illustrations. The oil originals need some drying time before they ship. There are many new ideas and sensations to blend, scrape, and brush onto the patient blank canvases. I’ve been dreaming up stacks of paintings for decades…and now I have my little seasonal painting studio!
How do you love to enjoy your minutes?
*Health Tip for Painters: Don’t just stretch your canvas…stretch yourself! Music also helps to remind you to stretch before and after painting. Dance-painting is needed to reach the span of my larger canvases…and it’s fun! Sing, release, and have a blast connecting with your soul.
Grateful for these few rainy June days to help clear the wild, smokey air. Love to all who are affected by the wildfires.
In the pocket of a trusty travel bag fits a delicious novel and a sweet children’s book to savour on a train or plane, in a lamplit inn with the summer breeze kissing your robed cheeks, or swaying on a hammock in your back garden. ‘Il dolce far niente’ means the sweetness of doing nothing in Italian. Letting yourself find what you love nourishes and rejuvenates the soul. My books are for all ages and encourage authentic, kind, peaceful practices and ideas to try. I love rereading them with our family as I hope you do, too.
In this often chaotic world, I write ways to live beautifully and naturally. My characters help instead of harm. They are funny, sweet, thoughtful, and very real. I send love to anyone who must travel due to emergencies in their homeland. As I know too well, this kind of travel is not at all relaxing as a vacation would be. People leave to save their lives. They are trying to escape danger. All they had built is left behind, and they have to start over, usually with nothing. This is heartbreaking and incredibly dangerous. Precautions and safe help are urgently needed during times of war, natural disasters, and abuse. Every country must protect the rights of women and children. Re-abolish slavery for good. Replace the history of negativity with positive growth that benefits everyone. New beginnings are a chance to redesign for a better life. Although we all may miss precious things that were lost due to trauma, we can heal and rebuild a healthy future to keep all of the babies of the world safe. Peace is possible if we all choose it.
I include tragic misfortunes and terrible struggles in my books, but I paint up characters who help those in need of a positive solution to solve troubles that seem out of their control. There are too many large and small scale problems on every street and hill in the world. I write peaceful ideas in the hope that positivity will spread down those streets and over those hills to reach anyone who needs help the most. Any little bit of help can make the most important difference for one or many. I wish you a peaceful summer, and I urge everyone to do something that helps someone in the coming months. *Ask how you may help, and then listen. Work with people to solve and prevent problems. Ask if you did help, and listen again. Repeat forever.
I am working on a way for a percentage of each sale to be donated to an organization that directly aids those in need of help while searching for a safe, new home. Being forced to live a nomadic, uncertain life is cruel, dangerous, and terrifying. We all need a steady, safe home. We all can work together to help everyone have this basic need. Our world must get out of this constant survival mode and change into a deep, lasting time of healing. Equality and safety is needed worldwide.
In my gift shop, I also feature artwork and photography inspired by my travels. Nature adores us always…trailing all the way from a rose wall in Tuscany back home to a sweet rose blooming in our New England cottage garden. Help, don’t harm. Preserve nature. Enjoy your unique senses of nature.

My books are cosy to read, or listen to, when at home, on a work break or weekend, and while travelling. Many of my stories are set in New England, such as my Sage Rose Sorrel children’s books, but here are some others that you might love to tag along with as my characters explore new favourite places.
Amaranthe tells of living in NYC and France. Leona has lived in two homes in Italy: one by the mountains and one by the sea. Ellary Eden grows a helpful, enchanting garden in the Witching World! I have just finished three fresh novels for you to explore soon. There is one especially delicious new book that is set in Belgium! Every time you explore a new place, you learn so much for your life ahead.
This morning, an idea came to life. Magical vines danced in the blossom-scented breeze. Ribbons twirled around a wooden ring. Dreamy nappers smile up at the rose garden growing above their sweet, inventive minds.
Love to you, from Rose Cottage

Our little family loves to play games…especially chess! Do you love games, too?
Years ago, I made a drawing of a chess piece whilst on a train to Paris. Recently, I wandered back in time through my travelling pink pocket sketchbook, and when I gently turned the page, a little dancer leaped out onto a sweet deckled notecard for you to send to a friend. This cheeky, yet empowering, Queen inspires a joyful energy for improving the mind. She reminds us that games are a wonderful way to spend time together. Happy Playtime! Love, Amor Milagre
The feathered, deckled edges are sweet and romantic, the creamy colour is soft and timeless, allowing your messages to be the focus.
Snuggle up with old world deckled cream notecards & envelopes for cosy winter days of letter writing to loved ones. Inky cross-hatched imagery of a velvety fluffy reindeer, a snow laden evergreen tree, Santa’s sleigh with a hot cocoa, Nordic style knit hat and mittens, and a garland of wintry natural foliage with a shining candle inspires a loving holiday spirit for all to warm by.
The feathered, deckled edges are sweet and romantic, the creamy colour is soft and timeless, allowing your messages to be the focus.
This set includes 5 notecards & 5 envelopes. A matching novel is coming soon.
