Part of my Book Village

They say it takes a village to raise a child. I say it takes a village to write a book. It finally is starting to feel real. This is the book I've been holding so close. Only a few have read it and now I am about to let it spread its wings and fly.

The above featured books are proofs awaiting final edits. There will be hardback, paperback and ebook versions available to purchase in late February.

I could not have accomplished so much without my son, Ricky, my lovely daughter-in-law, Kate, and granddaughters, Zelie and Melanie (named for her Aunt Mimi). Did I mention there are more members of my book village? Amazing daughter, Katie, and son-in-law, Chad, along with grandsons, Ben and Jacob, round out the inner circle!

But there have been many more behind the scenes who have assisted in the making of A Joyful Embrace: A Memoir about our Mimi. I see a future blog post on the horizon!

Profits will benefit The Village Learning Center in Mimi's memory.
