Did I fail to mention that Thirty Thursday is on a Holiday Hiatus? Sorry if I did. Yesterday I was completely BOOKED with not one but two booky engagements and I couldn't have been more thrilled.
A few weeks ago my darling neighbor invited me to her friend's "book launch."
"Absolutely," I promised to go...trying to figure out just how I will do the same...a book launch...in 6 months.
I had NO idea what an amazing world I would become a part of. We stayed for maybe an hour – but between the atmosphere (an antique shop), the spoken word and the local music two things became apparent to me: I AM part of this world and I CAN do this!
"More That A Story." That's the book, co-written (sounds like such a unique experience) by Henry Graf and Dani Tietjen. Dani lives locally in Minneapolis and Henry resides in Indiana. I'm not far enough into the book to offer a review or much insight, but here are a few words the jumped off the page...as if they were in my very own manuscript.
"Stories have power. They hold the ability to influence people and change lives. The stories we live make up the very fabric of our existence. Too often we miss out on the simple truths found in ordinary stories while we search for the larger, more exciting story. We wrote this book because we believe in the importance of training ourselves to see the depth and truth hidden in common, everyday stories."
Congratulations to Dani and Henry. Your night was magical. Your book I cannot wait to digest and your spirits were uplifting.
