What a summer and fall it’s been thus far!
It’s been a busiest-busy time for me with the launch of my new book, Calling the Shots in Your Medical Care. The book was released July 5, 2016, and reviewed here, here, and here. To those who have reviewed my book and/or who have spoken highly of it, thank you so much. I appreciate all your kind words and literary love.
In July, I threw a book launch party at Bespeak Studios in the heart of Chicago.
The party was fun and exciting — with a couple of firsts:
I never threw myself a party before.
Ari had never before attended a book launch party, and she discovered the significance of celebrating a book’s launch. Of course, for Ari, a party is as good a reason as any to get dressed up. So there she was, in her dress, enjoying being my reading pal.
I’ve since started participating in a round of student readings at the college where I work, Robert Morris University Illinois.
