Book Tour Day Three

I spoke at three schools in Cedar Rapids yesterday and then drove to Des Moines, two hours away, for a book signing at Wellspring Christian Bookstore. I had a great time. The bookstore is really great--spacious, great inventory, and friendly staff.

I have the privilege of meeting Elliot Reed (see photo), a frequent commenter on this blog. He and his family drove three hours from Minnesota to come to the signing. I am always thrilled to meet my readers, and it's overwhelming to think that people would want to drive that far to see me.

I have three bookstore events today, then I have to drive all night to get home. I probably won't post again until Monday. I appreciate your prayers for safe travel.

It was a really fun time! And actually, there’s a really good part about the long drive back, more book reading time! I’m halfway through right now, and enjoying every moment!

Sweetness!

I wish I could have met Mr. Davis! Although you did tell him about me Elliot. So thanks for that! I doubt my parents would drive that far for a book signing either.

I hate long car drives! :P You get sooo cramped! However if you have friends along its not soo bad.

I am praying for you Mr. Davis! God bless you!
