What a book! What an author! What a book launch party! What an interview! What a review! WOW! So much in one week's time.
Saturday, January 5, 2018, Bob and I, as Ken LaVigne's publishers, attended his book launch party in Whittier, California at the Doubletree for COACH THE SOUL. Here we are with him with his first royalties on a tray from his pre-publication sales through our website. What a thrill that was to present them to him in person!
Close to 140 people attended, including his many endorsers of the book, as pictured here! Many of these people were selected as California Teacher of the Year, one as Superintendent of the Year, etc. Ken LaVigne is surrounded by many successful educators, as he is himself.
And his biggest supporters of all, his family. His youngest son (Mark, on the far right) did an extraordinary job as event planner.
An absolutely fabulous event, it was filled with so much loving energy.
Then on January 8, the OFFICIAL release date of his book COACH THE SOUL, he had a dynamic radio interview (I cried, and I don't cry easily!) which can be heard here, the second one: http://caschoolnews.net/california-school-news-radio/
Last by not least, Mark Schultz of wordrefiner.com wrote this wonderful review: https://www.wordrefiner.com/book-reviews/coach-the-soul-by-ken-lavigne
This book is obviously for teachers, coaches, and counselors, but I believe this book is a great read for anyone who likes to read Reader's Digest or any of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. With 47 stories, each exemplifying a different value, COACH THE SOUL will pull at your heart strings and fill your mind with stimulating thoughts about your values in life.
