I am very proud to know two authors who are about to embark on their first book tours, so I wanted to give them both a plug this week. (And a big thank you to both of them for giving me something to post about!)
Daniel is the younger brother of one of the most amazing, wonderful people in the whole world, my friend Emily. That's how I met Daniel, but he's pretty wonderful in his own right. :-) He's incredibly funny and has such an interesting perspective. He has just published his second book, which is based on his experience working for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Retardation (thus, the book's title, DMR). He's going on a book tour of the U.S. via minivan, and he'll be chronicling his adventures at his new blog.
Many of you already know (and love!) Trish, but just in case you don't yet, she has just published her first book, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not: A Memoir of Finding Faith, Hope, and Happily Ever After and is embarking on her book tour this week. My copy is on its way to me now via Amazon, and I can't wait to read it! I met Trish through my friend Lynette and instantly knew why they had become such great friends. Trish is smart, funny, beautiful, and very inspiring. I feel blessed that our paths have crossed because she's such an uplifting, encouraging friend. She even went with me to see the David Crowder Band last fall even though she wasn't a fan (as I found out later)! :-)
Congratulations to Daniel and Trish!
