My dad's new book is available for preorder .
I am reading it, and so are many others.

It's a glorious, well written book about my dad and his family. How he and his brothers and sister grew up POOR in Eastern North Carolina is just the beginning. It is about the love a mother and father, a commitment to education and a remembrance of those who taught understanding and family loyalty.

I once wrote about a woman who started a blog about her family, specifically about her husband and the accidental life she inherited when she married him. She started telling her story through her blog over three years ago. The result of writing about cooking and her life on her ranch turned into a phenomenon. Recently, her cookbook was published and it turns out this woman is beloved by those whom have gotten to know her through her blog. The book is #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list for hardcover advice and a recent giveaway on her blog turned out over 13,000 comments.

I hope this success for my dad, and this book. Not for glory for my dad, because he would hate that, but for the book and all it has to teach us. Along with all the other things I have going on in my life, I will try to make this happen.
