Waiting for the library to buy a copy, Dean.

I'm sure it's a worthwhile read and good luck.

hey there say, cragman...

wow, wonderful success!!!


say, my book does not really sell...

the subject matter is different of course, and it is fiction...

but, i just sent TWO free gifts to two families, just the other day...


1-one man had a head injury and can't talk anymore, and his wife wants
to help get him into ASL (deaf language) (writing is too difficult, but, he can do it, when he needs to really push it) ...


but her house is so silent, and she does not want to lose communication...




2-THEN-- another gal, well, she has a friend that is having tongue surgery,
from having cancer...

and, he won't be able to talk... and, he is so witty and chatty, or, was,
until now...


she is hoping ASL will help him, if he is encouraged to learn...




signing is a hard step for some men, that never needed to...
mom's with kids, might 'take to it' easier... due to all the
things and ways that moms interact with kids...



since my books deal with the main character having
lost his tonguefrom a bull accident,
and dealing with head injuries and seizures, and
having a TWIN sister to 'get him used to the idea' and start
a NEW step into a new way to communicate,
and a way NOT to be ashamed of... though 'different'...
well--
they were both so very happy to learn that SOMEWHERE there
is such a story situation that might HELP open a door to do
some good...


so, we are all praying and hoping, :)
and, will see how it goes...



:)


so, they may not sell, but, they are now getting an open door to
get out into the world and do some good, :)


wow, and, again, i am so happy to see your book doing
good things, out in the world... thank god, :)

Good on ya, Neebie, for blessing those families with your book. One never knows what will come of small acts of kindness like that!

And thanks for the props on my book too! Its been doing really well, and some really exciting things are coming up that should kick it into another realm.

The speaking engagements have been great, and a lot of fun! I've had opportunity to meet SO many people as I travel around the country. I had one unique connection I'll share here.

At my first book signing in Mammoth last July, a couple that happened to be in Mammoth for the weekend came and bought a couple copies. They loved the book, and we became friends on Facebook.

Then last October, I received a message from the woman, asking me if I was involved in the recovery of a certain young man's body in 2002. (James Jenkins) I informed her that it was, in fact, me that found the body. She told me she was connected to the family through business, and wondered if I would be interested in connecting with them. (I had told her that I never did get the chance to meet the family after finding their son)

She gave my website to James' mother, and she sent me email. A phone call followed, which lasted two hours. I was able to let her know some details she was unaware of in regards to that awful day she lost her boy, and she told me all about how amazing James was, which gave me a far better picture of him than the only one I knew of a dead young man.

She bought my book, read it, then in November, showed up at my speaking engagement at CalTech, along with other family and friends. We shared some wonderful minutes together after my presentation, making a connection that will last forever.

Pretty wonderful how this all came about. God does awesome things with our lives.

Dean, you are like a traveling rock star...where do you get the energy?

Lol....that's funny stuff, Jody. 🤣

I guess my energy comes from just being passionate about my life and the subject matter. People are really responding to the information I have to share....that is a huge motivator!

I speak at The Mountain Air on February 21st. Hope you can make it!!

So, spoke at Northrop Grumman in Redondo Beach today. Didn't realize at first that I wasn't supposed to shoot any photography......shot these pics of the theater I presented in prior to coming to that knowledge.

Feds are probably looking for me as I write this. Not going home for a few more days.....maybe they'll give up. : )

Wonderful time, with great people! Loving this stuff!

Great time tonight at Mountain Air Sports listening to Dean. Had to leave before Q and A was done so bummed about that. Brought my dad along and he was duly impressed also.

Great turnout, place was packed.

Yes....it was REALLY and enjoyable time....always great to speak to a packed house, with people so hungry for information, with lots of questions.

Thanks to you both for coming!

I emailed you my phone number. Drop me a text so I'll have yours and I'll get you and dad hooked up.

It was a great time for sure at a great venue. Folks are super friendly at The Mountain Air and trying their best to make it in an internet world.
