In the Spotlight, Or, What I Do When I Completely Space A Review

So, somehow in all the chaos of trying to write a decent first chapter to workshop, getting my home/family ready to handle three days without me, and actually attending the LDS Storymakers Conference last weekend, I totally spaced a review I was supposed to do. Ack! I hate it when that happens. Luckily, Tracee over at Pump Up Your Book Promotion is a forgiving sort and asked only that I post a spotlight of I Am Going Where I Belong by Hans Lindor. I'm happy to perform such a meager penance to make up for my complete lack of professionalism/responsibility/brainpower.

Here's a quick summary of the book from Amazon:

I am Going Where I Belong is a gripping journey through the plight of a once wealthy immigrant family. Chriscile Leger, mother of two, is forced to flee her native country with her children after her husband is brutally assassinated during a coup d'etat. I am Going Where I Belong is filled with heartrending turns of fate that, through their believability, make each character vibrantly engaging for the reader.

A native of Haiti, the author has used his extraordinary life experiences to inspire his fiction, poetry and screenplays. He is also a motivational speaker, who talks to students about the dangers of drugs, guns, and violence.

I'll be reviewing this book when I get a chance. I'll also be recapping my experience at LDS Storymakers. And giving you my thoughts on more great books. Just as soon as I chug some Tylenol and take a nap. Stay tuned ...

  1. It occured to me after the conference that I didn't see you. Anywhere. How is that even possible?
