When my debut book hit bookshelves on August 30, 2019, that felt like a dream. But this other thing I got to do? It might’ve been even sweeter.
I mean, I worked my hiney off to write the book, work with a publisher and get it in your hands. But, as I wrote it, I always hoped you’d actually get to hear my twang, my inflection, my emotion as I read the words in the way I hope you heard them when you read it.
So, just before the world shut down and words like “social distancing,” “pandemic,” “quarantine” became standard language, I was in a sound booth, recording this for you.
And, I even put this together, as an added bonus, because some people say I have an accent.
The leap of faith, though, was that this project was fully funded by Mr. Whitaker and I (with the help of Beautycounter!) It took some saving and praying and we have been blown away by your support and encouragement. For that, my biggest Texas thanks. As an added bonus, Fr. Dave Dwyer, CSP, read his foreword and it’s included with the book! How cool is that?
If you’re looking for other great audio books to listen to, I’ve put together a few on my Amazon page (along with lots of my favorite products, too).
Thanks, y’all, for being encouragers and just all around great people. God made it happen!
