Well, it is getting so close now. My project of chronicling my story through mold induced illness will soon come to fruition.
My dear friend Victoria and her husband (read about her here) have graciously allowed me to have a book launch party in their lovely back yard. This back yard has been host to many wonderful and lovely social events over the years and I have been fortunate to be able to attend a few of them.
My copy of the book should arrive in a week or so but I need to make sure everything is right (no pages out-of-order or upside down). I want to have an online book launch and online book blog tour culminating in my book launch party. I scheduled my party for October 19th (hopefully it will be cooler because September can still be quite hot here and with luck the air will be better than it is now) to allow time for me to get information to any bloggers wishing to host me during the first two weeks of October and copies of the book to those wishing to read and review it.
As I sit here staring at the computer screen I can hardly believe it is finally happening. You have all allowed me into your lives a few times a week to share my life and my journey with you. You have given me the confidence to move beyond just writing the book but to sending it out into the world. Thank you all for your kind words and comments.
You go girl !!
Thank you so much Brenda.
It’s been our blessing, Kathryn. Thank you for coming into our lives.
Thank you Miche. I have thoroughly enjoyed all my new friends that I have found because of this blog and because of this illness. It is sad that we all didn’t meet under better circumstances though.
Ahh, but then we would never have met, which makes ‘all’ of us meeting up with each other a gift of this illness and all the other illnesses too.
to our journeys,
and your fantastic-soon-to-be-released book!
Miche – it is a gift of this illness. Things have been taken away from all of us but we have also been given the gift of many new and wonderful friendships. I love the way you put it.
AWESOME— I AM THRILLED FOR YOU– & YOU KNOW I SUPPORT YOU 1.000 % & WILL HELP YA –IN ANY WAY I CAN!!!! ❤ YA!!
THANK YOU SONDA (AND THIS INSTANCE I AM SHOUTING! YOU HAVE BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE.)

Wonderful, Kathryn! I love that you’re having a book-launch party with friends and family. It’s important to honor such a momentous achievement.
Ellen, it is very exciting. I just need to get through this week as I am very under the weather so I can focus on my plans and get more emails out seeking hosts for the tour. My lungs are on fire. My acupuncturist/DO says that I am wheezing badly both in and out. I feel better after she worked on me and will go back tomorrow for another round.
Marking my calendar for the online book launch!
Thank you Christine. Two blogs have offered to host my book on its tour so far. Yea!
It is getting close and lots to do between now and then. I just have to get over my breathing issue and then I am good to go.
Will be happy to host you on my blog. When you know a release date let me know so I can include it in my monthly newsletter.
Cynthia – Thank you so much. I will give you a release date as soon as I have it. I don’t think it will be long. I will email you about what you need or want to do for the hosting.
