“Up Until Now: Inspired Stories from Real People on How to Embrace Your Fear, Move Forward and Transform Your Life” is the newly published book by Laura K. Walker of Keller and Ellen Moseley May of Livingston and the Up Until Now book tour is coming to Livingston.
Laura and Ellen will be guests on the Drummer Don radio show from 10 a.m. to noon Friday on 102.3 The Eagle. Book signings are slated for 12:30-2 p.m. Saturday at Alma’s Whistlestop Cafe and from 4-6 p.m. Sunday at The Wet Deck Bar and Grill on Lake Livingston.
Forty real people from all around the world share their true stories of pain, heartache, grief and loss in the book, including their moments of overcoming and creating a renewed hope and reality after the storm settles. The stories of transformation run the gamut from job loss to navigating a messy divorce to surviving the death of a loved one to being financially devastated and more – all facing circumstances that seem overwhelming and insurmountable.
According to Amazon, “The resounding theme of overcoming is captured in these emotionally charged stories and this book serves as a collective voice to anyone who is struggling, stuck, scared, depressed or looking for something bigger while praying for
some glimmer of hope.”
The book launched last weekend in South Lake with a weekend celebration that included a book signing at Barnes and Noble with 33 of the 40 authors present. Other festivities included an author champagne bash, afternoon luncheon and celebration party at Billy Bobs in the Fort Worth Stockyards. It has already hit Amazon #1 Best Seller status in seven categories in both digital and in paperback.
