I love this bookstore and always go there when in town. On Saturday, April 19th, I will discuss my latest book, Your Soul at a Crossroads, With Steps You Can Take Not to Lose It. This book is for the serious issues of our lives. That does not mean just the sad ones; it also means when you feel the urge to grow and expand and you don't know your next step. I love helping people in this way. If you can't come, you might like to get the book. As an ebook, it's the price of a latte.
