It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is next week. Come to think of it, lots of things are hard to believe. How can this former Pennsylvanian feel so cold when the temperature drops into the 40s here in Florida? How can I have a 13-year-old daughter who’s counting down the days until she can drive? How can my barber have so much trouble cutting out my gray hairs? I could go on.
But this post isn’t about chilly weather, a fast-growing daughter, or the color percentages of my hair (For the record, most of the ones that remain are brown). No, this post is to announce a new co-authored column and a book sale.
As I mentioned in my last column, my daughter and I worked on a writing project during her tween years (ages 9-12). We’re calling our new column, “Tween Daughter and Dad.” Each month, we’ll discuss a different topic from the perspective of a tween daughter and her father. The new column is like “MoMENts,” except my daughter presents the tween’s voice. She doesn’t always agree with her father … Isn’t that hard to believe? So, keep an eye out for our first post about a topic that relates to Valentine’s Day.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, books make great gifts. From now through February 14, Amazon is selling my book, MoMENts: A Dad Holds On, for $9.99, a $5 savings from its $14.99 cover price. A price so low… it’s hard to believe! This book makes a great gift for mothers, fathers, and grandparents and is also available on Kindle ($2.99).
Please share this news with others. My valentine has always wanted to live on the beach, but it’s going to take thousands of sold books. One day, when I tell her I’ve sold enough books to make this dream come true, she will say, “It’s hard to believe.”
Until next post, keep chasing your dreams as you cherish the moments.
