Praise for Amy SignsBuy
My Denver book tour was a great success, primarilydue to the tireless efforts of Nancy Kneipple, my friend and publicist. The Dry Creek Sertoma Club in South Denver, composed of a group of super-active ladies who promote hearing awareness, warmly welcomed me. After one member read Amy Signs, she sent me this wonderful note: "Thank you so much for attending our Dry Creek Sertoma Club and telling us about your life and the challenges of raising a deaf daughter. Most of us had never thought of all the various obstacles you and your family faced while trying to give Amy the opportunity to be 'normal.' Amy Signs is full of joy and also trauma and sadness. My congratulations and thanks to you and Amy for sharing your deep emotions with the world. I am a better person for having read your book. I am sharing it with a family who work with developmentally challenged students in several school. Carol"
Denver Book Tour: Just the Facts
I begin my tour with a breakfast meeting with the Creek Sertoma Club. Speaking to the women of the UU Church Book Club was a first for me. I received their feedback on Amy Signs, answered their questions, and added more details about raising a Deaf child than what I wrote about in Amy Signs.
Meeting a local writers' group gave me the opportunity to encourage fellow writers. Unless you are a writer, you can't imagine the loneliness and frustration that is a large part of the process of writing for publication.On the Colorado University campus in Boulder, I had the opportunity to speak to a group of people with hearing loss, as well as to university staff and students. I hope the educators and students will understand the necessity to read Amy Signs if they have chosen a career that involves working with Deaf or hard of hearing individuals.
