Death by Minivan Goes South: A Book Tour

Death by Minivan Goes South: A Book Tour

Please note: this schedule is updated as much as I’m able! Thank you for your patience.

Hello, friends!

Things have gotten verrrry interesting around here, and I am pleased as punch to finally be able to tell you that I’m embarking on an adventure of a lifetime this Friday (yes, I said this Friday).

DEATH BY MINIVAN IS GOING SOUTH!!

That’s right, y’all: as soon as the uber driver picks me up in my driveway at 3 a.m. (yes, I said 3 a.m.), I’m heading to PDX, taking an early morning flight to Texas, and getting this crazy book show on the road!

And here’s the really exciting part … I WILL HAVE BOOKS! ON! HAND! TO SIGN FOR YOU! … even though they won’t officially begin shipping out until Monday, October 8th. Eeeeeeeek! Thanks to my publisher, OSV, for making this happen. WOOT! Go, #DeathByMinivanOSV team, GO! 

((By the by, you can still get the ebook version TODAY and read the WHOLE ENCHILADA on your smartphone or other device! You can also pre-order the physical book!))

Here’s what the tour looks like right now, and I’ve even included a few white spaces in my schedule (see below!), so … if you’d like a parish mission, moms’ group meeting, lunch and learn, moms’ night out, bagels and brunch, Q & A, etc., hmu! Let me know ASAP and we might be able to work something out. #willworkforcoffee and also #cashmoney because, hello! Driving is expensive! haha Also, here are some events I’ve done in the past as reference.

Praise His Name | Blessed is She

Praise His Name | Blessed is She

Happy Sunday, Friends! Today, I’m over at Blessed is She talking about one of my favorite things – praising God. Here’s a sneak peek:

During an endless day of chasing numerous children in myriad directions where the breakfast was burned, the coffee was cold, the toilet overflowed, the homework was lost, the van was iced over, the dinner wouldn’t cook, the husband had a late meeting, the important deadline was missed . . . there may be noises coming out of my mouth, but I can pretty much guarantee that none of them are joyful!

And yet, Scripture doesn’t say, “Make a joyful noise when life is perfect.” It doesn’t say, “Praise the Lord when you’re sufficiently caffeinated and everyone is calm and your house is pin-worthy.”

Read more here, and when you’re done, pick up a copy of the BiS Lenten Journal before they’re all gone!

May God abundantly bless you this week.

In Him,

Heather
