I certainly don’t mean to turn my blog into free advertising space, but as the former Chicago Mare Daley used to say: “if you can’t help your relatives, who can you help?”
My cousin, Tracy, has been working on a book for some time, and the blood, sweat, and tears that she has poured into it have finally led to publication. Her book is titled Gratitude, Giggles & Grace: One Woman’s Humorous Journey of Self-Discovery through the Dating World.
While Tracy and I are only a year apart, we have not been geographically close … though I have had an opportunity to see her a few times, and we have gotten a little closer. Two visits ago I knew that her manuscript was nearly done, and my last visit this summer saw it just about to go to press. Today I got my personally signed copy!
I have not read it yet, and hope to do so in the next few weeks (I am in the middle of another book on engineering and logistics disasters that I am hoping to incorporate into my class).
Until then, I can only state how proud I am of my cousin, and do a little unsolicited free publicity.
