Getting things in gear for next week’s busy book signing schedule. After posting on Facebook about my upcoming events, I have heard from so many people about how Alzheimer’s has touched their lives. I hope ‘Fishing for Memories’ can be a tool for parents to use in sharing the subject of Alzheimer’s with their children and as a book about the importance of never giving up.
On January 11th, I will have the honor of chatting with Lora Songster, WMAG’s morning DJ. The interview will be taped and I will post when it will air on this blog and on Facebook.
On January 13th, I am so excited about being on FOX 8 with Brad Jones and Cindy Farmer to talk about my book and the inspiration behind the book, my Uncle Richard Speas. The media from print, Forsyth Woman & Forsyth Family Magazine, to TV, Triad Today with Jim Longworth, WXII and FOX 8, to radio, WMAG, have been so gracious in having me as a guest and making me feel at home. I am so appreciative for everyone’s help in getting the word out on not only my book, but on Alzheimer’s. Presently, my book is available for purchase at June DeLugas Interiors in Clemmons, NC. She has been so generous to carry the book in her shop.
My first book signing in also on January 13th, from 5:30-7:30 at Barnhill’s, on Burke St. in Winston-Salem. I love the thought of meeting people who have been touched by Alzheimer’s and sharing my uncle’s story and hearing their stories too.
Friday, January 16th, I hope to have a great turnout at Casanova’s Coffee in Lewisville for the book signing. Owner, Adele Casanova has graciously allowed me two times for the day, 9-11 am and 2-4 pm. So drop by and grab one of Casanova’s delicious coffees and sweets, say Hi and check out my book.
The busy week ends at Border’s at Thruway from 1-4 pm with another time of sharing and signing. There is nothing better than a book store. It may sound strange, but I love the smell of books and paper and just being surrounded by great writers and their works makes me feel really neat.
Hope one of the locations and times works out for you all.
