2 facts about tomorrow: First, I turn a year older tomorrow. This is both exciting and a little frightening at the same time. I am coming ever closer to turning a quarter of a century old. I’m not quite there yet, but it’s a frightening thought. I know, for those of you who are older than 25, that sounds like I’m a spring chicken. But for me, it’s a little scarier. Do you remember when you were getting close to 25? We each go through phases like this. BTMV promo pb and kSecond, my second book is being released to the general public. Today is the last day the Kindle version will be available for preorder and also the last day it will be available for only $0.99 (until I do another promo). Tomorrow the book will be available for purchase and have a higher price tag. If you want to read the book for a cheaper price buy it now. I also have my proof copy for the paperback in my possession. It looks gorgeous! And I just read through it all yesterday (I know, I’m bad) and there were just four minor issues. Once those are resolved early this week, I’ll be able approve the proof and it will be available to order shortly after that. In other words, if you preorder your autographed copy, I’ll be able to ship the book to you absolutely no later than the week before Thanksgiving!  Autographed copies are just $10.00 + shipping. This blog post is set up in 2’s, 4’s, and 24’s. I think you can probably guess why. 😉 4 things about me:

2 questions asked of me by Dawnita: Q9: Are the experiences in your book based on someone you know, or events in your own life? A little bit, yes. I do know a couple of people who started out as “just friends” and ended up getting married to each other so I used their experiences a little. Q10: What books have most influenced your life most? The Holy Bible is the only one that has really influenced my life. There have been a couple others that did as well including, Best Friends for Life by Michael and Judy Phillips, Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and For Men Only by Shaunti Feldhahn. 4 questions I get to ask you:

  1. Did you learn anything new about me from this blog post?
  2. Why haven’t you bought my book yet?
  3. If you have, can you please review it when you’ve read it?
  4. What are you depending on to get you to heaven?

intro-tour Dawnita Fogleman was so kind as to help organize a blog tour for my upcoming book release and I am honored to be part of the blog tour myself. To read more about my book and myself, check out this blog post for links to the other blogs on the tour.
