The Life of a Stay-at-Home D-Dad: Scott Benner’s Story

Scott Benner

I was interviewed recently by Laura K. from Discuss Diabetes about blogging, advocacy and being a father. Laura and I talked for over an hour and we covered some topics that I don't usually get to write about here on Arden's Day. 


In the book Scott tells the stories of what he saw as pivotal moments. “I wanted to leave people feeling uplifted, more connected with the idea of family being most important,” he said. “It comes from recognizing there’s probably nothing more important that you can do than just watch your kid at baseball practice for five minutes because it means more to him than you can understand.” 


Laura closes the interview by giving her thoughts on Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal. They are among the most touching words that I could imagine hearing. I hope you have a few seconds to check it out.


Speaking of my new book that arrives on April 2nd...

I've added a review section to my book page. Look for recent reviews by Manny Hernandez from TUDiabetes and Chris Snider from the Just Talking PodCast.

I'm being told that the eBook formats often become available weeks before the launch date - I'll let you know when you can download.

Those wanting a paperback take note: Amazon and Barnes & Noble have both dropped the price for LIS to $9.47. If you are planning on buying the book, this is the lowest price that I've seen yet. Pre-Orders should arrive at your home on the release date. Links to both sites, as well as Canadian and UK Amazon are here.

I'm humbled and a bit taken aback by the amount of requests that I'm receiving for autographed copies of LIS. So far we only have one signing scheduled but I'm working on getting more opportunities set up. I'm also trying to work out a way that I can provide copies directly without adding tons of shopping costs. Stay tuned and follow Life Is Short on FaceBook for updates.

Have a great weekend!
