Life Lessons from Dads Now Available


Last week I received my contributor copy of LIFE LESSONS FROM DADS. Yippy!

The anthology is special to me because it includes my essay, "A Just Man," which is about my late father James P. Duly, Sr., and some lessons he taught me, including to be proud of who I am and to never stop learning.

The gift book from Write Integrity Press, has 21 essays about lessons our dads taught us, along with scores of photos--including one of my dad with his large glasses and mustache, looking somewhat like a Mafia Don, except that J. P. Duly was Irish-American.

At 91 pages, the stories, photos, and layout are nicely done. The anthology has a spiritual slant and includes author bios from contributors ranging from: a doctor, a church elder, several teachers (Sunday school, Bible, Homeschooler and Special Needs), a nurse, a TV producer, freelance writers and others.

The book is available in print and Kindle 

Here is a link to the book trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89YW7VK3tYA&feature=youtu.be
which includes LIFE LESSONS FROM DADS

  3. Congrats, Donna, on yet ANOTHER publishing credit. With so few stories, they were obviously extremely selective.
