I'm so excited that my new book is finally in print. I got my copies in the mail yesterday. I was on the phone doing an interview when someone knocked on the door and the dog started barking, so I excused myself for a minute and found a heavy box. I couldn't imagine what was in it since the only thing on order right now is a pair of sunglasses. Then I looked at the return address and realized it was from my publisher. A couple friends had pre-ordered and reported that they'd gotten their copy the day before.
My last book was released almost 8 years ago today. It was delivered as I was in labor with my fourth son and getting ready to head to the hospital. My latest book is titled "Mom Moments: A compilation of columns from the Northwest Indiana Times." It is a collection of columns I wrote for the paper from 2000-2010. My friend, MaryBeth Witulski shot the cover image for me. Last summer she did a photo session of my family at a local park and snapped this one of my and my five boys. I thought it would make a great pic for the book.
I'm told it will be listed on Amazon.com, but I don't see it on there yet. I'll have to start working on some book signings in the area. For now, it can be purchased at the publisher website:
