Two signings next month

Earlier this year I did a post announcing two more book signings for February.

One in San Francisco that I made it to and one in Minneapolis that I didn’t.

I got sick and had to cancel at the last minute. I wasn’t doing well as you know.

My transplanted kidney was failing and I had to unexpectedly start dialysis in March.

By June I was off dialysis because I received another kidney transplant thanks to the wonderful gift of life from my mom.

Now, it’s September. Several months later and I am doing great. Mom, too. Feeling worlds better and I’m so grateful.

Your kindness during those tough months still means so much to me. Thank you.

It’s been a crazy year, but next month on October 8th, I’ll be in Minnesota for the book signing I missed in February. Yay!

If you had planned on coming last time, I hope you can make it again. I would love to meet you guys, share cake pop stories and give you a big hug.

Coincidentally, I’m also going to be in San Francisco again later in October. My mom and I will be attending a charity event with my publisher benefitting the National Kidney Foundation that serves Northern California. Chronicle was kind enough to make a donation. I love those guys.

While I’m there, I’ll be doing a book signing at the Chronicle Headquarters store. Hope you can come by and say hi. There will be more hugs.

Here are the details for both.

One guess per comment please.

Here’s a hint: It’s a cartoon character.

Good Luck!
