It’s hard to believe that Plus or Minus is just a couple of months away, but it’s true. And while there has been a flurry of activity here in the background, I’m really most excited about what is going on up front.
It is amazing how something that used to isolate us now connects us with people. I’ve been so enthralled by all of the new connections, all of the people who are eager to share their stories, even if they happened twenty years ago!
It also amazes me every time I connect with someone new, how much other people have suffered in order to have children. Believe me, Cheri and I did not write this book because we thought we had it the worst. Far from it. But it is a testament to the human spirit how much people are willing to endure for children who do not yet exist.
We have also got two pre-release events that are really exciting and those of you in the Kansas City area should definitely come out. First, in a couple of weeks, Saturday December 6, I’ll be here for a local author book fair. I’ll be talking about the writing and publishing process, not to mention giving away Plus or Minus.
Next, we have nailed down a launch event for Plus or Minus in the heart of the city. We are calling it Stories of Redemption and I just cannot wait to see how it will bring people together and give them hope and encouragement. In the end, our redemption does not come from having children, but somewhere else entirely.
That is what is fueling me this week! See you on the other side.
