Chick-fil-A Literacy Night 9/29

Book Signing

 Book Signing Event 9/29th

So excited to be participating in Literacy Night at Chick-fil-A (Main Street – Suffolk) on September 29th for 5pm-8pm. Come on out and support 3 local authors: Janice Holland, Nan O’Berry, and myself!

My book, Love Echoed Back, can be purchased 3 different ways: 

  1. Support a local business: Purchase from the Christian Bookstore of Suffolk (in the same shopping center as Chick-fil-A).
  2. Purchase on the internet:  www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com
  3. Purchase onsite at Chick-fil-A on 9/29th!!!

I will be available to sign books, discuss possible speaking engagements, and host a drawing for a gift basket containing items from the author, the Christian Bookstore of Suffolk, and Chick-fil-A.   

Come early – there may be free chicken involved!! (hint, hint) 

Remember, the holiday season is almost upon us, and this book would make a great gift!! Hope to see you, your family, and all your friends there!!!!

Wow! What a busy couple of weeks it has been!

I am happy to share some of the footage with you this week! I invite you to come on over to my recently created YouTube channel and give it a view. As always, your reaction is welcome!!

 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
