Virtual Book Tour
Women, Motorcycles and the Road to Empowerment went on a virtual tour in the Spring of 2012. One of the nice things about such an event is that you can recreate it anytime by visiting the host websites. Prepare yourself for adventure, self-discovery and inspiration. Like a treasure, its message is so potentially life-altering, it must be shared.
I was honored and humbled by the outstanding hosts who participated and thrilled to introduce you to them. All exceptional leaders and experts in their respective fields, they generously engaged their time to promote the message of the book.
This tour was a fitting celebration of spring, renewal and that special bond that exists amongst like-minded travelers. In that spirit, the tour dates were bookended by my birthday – May 9 — and the first full day of summer – June 21.
