Homewaters Book Launch

And, subsequent events.

Wow, Homewaters is out in the world! Bookstores have it. A friend in Nairobi, Kenya, has it. My mom has it…and says she likes it.

To promote the book, I am participating in a variety of events, which are listed below. It’d be great to see you at one of them. They should be fun and entertaining.

If you want to purchase the book, I encourage you to do so through the bookstores that are hosting me. If you want a signed book, you can buy one (or more) from me.

All events are virtual. Most are free. All are open to everyone.
