Here is some of what I can do:

1) Darcy will arrive at an event with books to sign and sell for a book signing

2) Darcy will speak about her family, share pictures and media, and do a reading of poetry or a chapter excerpt of the book which may be tailored to your request

3) Darcy can talk about the faith story of her mother and the complexity of trust and prayer in the face of a currently incurable disease

4) Darcy can talk about the publishing process for a first time author in the social media age of book marketing

5) Darcy can speak about advocacy and awareness for people like those in her family

6) Darcy can speak about the nature of being a caregiver in a family with genetic, degenerative or terminal disease

7) Darcy can speak with book groups about rhetorical strategies, author’s purpose, revisions, or answer any questions you may have

8) Darcy can tailor a guest speaking event to meet your needs! Darcy can even Skype with audiences farther away.
