I was ecstatic to learn last week that my book "I Quit!" would be featured on Dr. Laura's Book Giveaway. I was delighted a few years ago when she endorsed my book too.
I thought I'd listen to the segment at work with my co-workers, but decided to go home to listen by myself, and to tape it. I knew exactly what time it would be on, since I'm a regular listener to the show.
I put the tape in, and pressed "record" @ 4:05 pm. Dr. Laura first read a few pages of my book---the chapter where I told my dad and his wife that I was going to kill myself because I was upset with them over a money issue. Then she talked a little about my book.
That morning I looked at a picture of my dad (who died 3 years ago) and said "Dad, I hope you can hear Dr. Laura today because you had so much to do with me getting to this place." I thought it was a bit "interesting" that she read that part of the book, mentioning my father. Coincidence? Who knows?
But it sure was cool to hear Dr. Laura talking about my book. I'm so grateful to her.
