Boil hot water, tear up the white sheets and call the doctor!  The Baby is being birthed.  Cruisin’ Thru Life ~ Dip Street and Other Miracles is on its way. This is what it feels like to be in publishing.  Crazy, deadlines, determined that you are right, terrified you are wrong and praying God can fix it all.  Since my last book , social media has changed the process, increased the excitement and expanded the list of potential readers.  I set up an event page on Facebook for the launch and tweeted #Tulia and tweeted #DipStreet.BookCoverPreview.do

I love the cover…Photo credit goes to Johnny Young, forward by Lanna Payne Barnett and comments by Sheran Morris Childress, all fellow travelers. Memories are included compliments of  my  family, friends and community.

These slice of life stories hopefully will make you smile, build your faith and stir up your own memories.  Life Lessons are included at no extra charge.

Below are the table of contents. Let me know which one made you laugh, which made you cry and the one that touched your heart the most.

And check out the t-shirts… We are having a contest for the very best Dig Street slogans.  Leave you suggestions here or email me
