Guess what? My first book is here and the girls from Branches Book Club at Middletown United Methodist Church (MUMC) are throwing a party! Call up a friend and join us Monday night, November 26th at 6:30 p.m. to launch this baby. (It’s been a very long twenty-seven months in the making!)
Another highlight that evening will be when my friend, mentor, and well-known author, Liz Curtis Higgs, kicks off the Launch. (She wrote the Foreword, God bless her.) You’ll learn why she had such an integral part in the birth of my book.
I’ll share with you some crazy anecdotes from this journey as well as do a reading for you. We’ll be meeting in the newly remodeled Connections Center.
We will have books available Monday night and I’ll be tickled to sign them if you like. This is a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming-scenario for certain!
You can also find my book and Kindle format on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and www.christianbook.com. Locally, The Living Word Bookstore in Southeast Christian Church is selling my book as well as both the Frankfort Ave. and Bardstown Road locations of Carmichael’s Bookstore. (My website has more info on the “my new book” tab and more recipes! More fun things coming soon.)
Many of you will know my friends who wrote beautiful treatises in the book as well as who gave me fabuloso recipes! Two prominent and favorite restaurateurs also graciously gave me recipes: Nancy Tarrant from the Cheddar Box St. Matthews location and Kelley Ledford from Uptown Cafe. These would be great to try with your friends.
I pray my book becomes a fun resource for you and your friends on many levels. (There are questions for Book Clubs as well as questions for your small group for a mini-Bible study.) I hope to see you Monday night the 26th! Please RSVP to Nancy Tinnell at (502)245-8839.
FYI: Before Liz kicks off the launch, we will have a short, mini-book club discussion about our November selection, Merry Hmbug Christmas: Two Tales of Holiday Romance by Sandra Bricker. If you’d like to participate in the ornament exchange, please bring a wrapped ornament with you. I’ve received the cutest ornaments the last couple of years from this exchange!
Have a Happy, Blessed Thanksgiving and I’ll look forward to seeing you next Monday!
‘Til next time!
P.S. My friend, Jane Chilton, and I will be on the 4 o’clock news LIVE on Monday the 26th on WHAS 11 with Rachel Platt to chat about my book. Oh, I see you laughing. We are too, believe me! Please pray we’re able to say something that makes sense in some wild way.😍
