In honor of February being International Friendship month my mother Michelle Minero and I are doing a dual book signing/meet and greet Thursday, February 28th from 7-9pm at Reader’s Books Bookstore in Sonoma, CA.

My mother and I’s books proceeds and a portion of Reader’s Books proceeds for that day and the event will be donated to the Sonoma Boys and Girls Club. Sonoma Market’s manager Al Minero chose this foundation to be the recipient of the proceeds. He believed that The Boys and Girls Club would be a great choice to give the proceeds to as the Club reaches out to children in need, giving them support, encouragement and guidance; all friendship qualities.

Michelle Minero, recently published a book called: “Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works” a book that focuses on loving oneself and being kind to our bodies as a few of the many ingredients of the Self-Love Diet, versus other typical diets where one tends to neglect the bodies natural needs. Michelle is a licensed marriage family therapist who specializes in eating disorder recovery. She created an intensive outpatient eating disorder program in 2000 and in 2005 founded EDRS (Eating Disorder Recovery Support, Inc.). Her dream is to see a world filled with people who love themselves and their bodies.

My book, “The Friendship Effect” is a two-part book that will teach you all you need to know to be a true friend and to create long-lasting genuine friendships. Part one focuses on being a friend to yourself and living a life based on what makes you happy, which will inevitably attract more friends your way. Part two spotlights the secrets to being a true friend, creating and sustaining lifelong friendships while showing why and how friendships are lifesaving and world changing. An array of studies and life-changing programs from gurus from around the world are also embedded throughout this book to assist you in creating a life that you are passionate about while making friendships.

My mother and I are both passionate about helping others and making the world a better place which is why we wrote our books, to spread our messages to as many people as we can. We are excited to be able to help a great local organization such as The Boys and Girl’s Club along the way.

Please join us and bring your friends and family, Thursday, February 28th from 7-9pm for this special event and help a great cause at the same time.
