It’s been 18 months since I first received the email asking if I would be interested in turning this site into a physical book. It’s been stressful and exciting, nerve-wracking and amazing. Thank you all for hanging on for the ride.

I’ve scheduled my first signing, it will be held at the Charleston County Library in historic Charleston on May 16 at 6:30pm. I will be speaking on Lifeskills as a Tool for Empowerment and I’m asking attendees to consider bringing an item to donate to My Sister’s House. To see what kind of items are appropriate for this women’s shelter, please check out their wishlist.

I am starting to organize a small tour, but to do this effectively, I’ll need your help. Right now I’m considering locations within a day’s drive of Charleston, SC. In the summer when childcare is more manageable (as in I can bring my sitter along) other locations can be added.

How can you help?

If you have a contact at your library, with a women’s group such as Mothers and More, MOPS, or have a contact at a local college or university please send me an email and we’ll see what we can put together. As with the signing here in Charleston, I would love to be able help causes that make sense. As an example, later this year I’ll be working with Cooking with the Troops in an effort to help military personnel and their families learn basic cooking skills. I can’t tell you how excited I am to work with this organization.

    I don't know if there will be a translation to Hungarian. I don't have much control over distribution. I was surprised it was going as far as the UK and Australia.
