I owe you an update!

Tomorrow is my second tv appearance, and I thought, geez I don't even think I gave an update after my first one.

So daytime Durham went great! Dena, the host was super friendly, as was her producer Sandi. I was nervous before going on but it wasn't too bad once we started. The link for those who want to watch it is on my website, but here you are!

Then I had my book signing on Sunday, which also was fantastic! I have such an amazing group of friends and family who came out to support me. I sold 22 copies of my book and together with other donations, raised $100 for the Denise House. I also had members of the congregation request me to be there next Sunday so they could buy copies. So that's amazing!

I really appreciate everyone's support for myself and the Denise House. I'll try to post tomorrow with an update after being on Talk Durham!

Lights... Camera... Action UPDATE

Just an update about my TV appearances, I can't believe they are coming up. Two more sleeps till I'll be on daytime Durham. I know there may be some people that aren't local that might be interested in watching them. You can watch daytime Durham online at http://www.rogerstv.com/page.aspx?lid=237&rid=2&sid=2325 which airs this Thursday, October 3rd at 11:00a.m. EST, or watch on Rogers TV Channel 10 or 63. This will be a 5 - 10 minute segment. 

Then a week tomorrow I will be on Talk Durham. This is also available online, at http://www.rogersondemand.com/tvshows/talk_durham and airs Wednesday, October 9th at 7:00p.m. EST on the same channel but I will be on for 30 minutes! A whole 30 minutes. Two of the workers from the Denise House will be on the show speaking about spousal abuse for the first 30 minutes. Then I'll be on solo. EEP!!! It's so exciting though.

I am so very thankful for the producers and everyone at daytime Durham and Talk Durham for helping me raise awareness.

On another note, I'd also like to thank my mum, grandma, and sister who helped me make about 150 purple awareness ribbons for my book signing event this Sunday.
