I have exciting news. In time for the ten year anniversary of the US invasion and liberation of the Afghan people from the taliban, and for the book launch this Wednesday, Joanne’s Marshall Plan Charities broke ground on the first ever, model village in Afghanistan–showing that food, water, education, and healthcare can be provided for a village of 10,000 for the same price as it costs to keep one US soldier in the field for a year.
Thank you so much for all your support so far! Diplomacy and Diamonds launches this Wednesday. I am kicking off the tour with a book signing at Bulgari in NY (with a Prince!). Then I’m traveling to Houston, Dallas, Washington D.C., and more! I will let you all know the details when it gets closer to those events.
Lately I’ve had a lot of people ask me about my upcoming media appearances, so I thought you might appreciate a list of them. They are as follows (all times listed are EST):
- October 19
- 6:45 AM EST- interview on Fox and Friends News Channel
- 8:00 AM EST – interview on CNN’s Wake Up Call with Ali Velshi

You will also have the opportunity to see me at several book signing events later this month; Follow me on Twitter (@JoanneKHerring) and like my page on Facebook to stay updated on all of my upcoming book signings and press events.
This has been one of the most exciting times of my life, and that’s saying something! For the life of a book, launch week and the week after are the most important in terms of word of mouth. All of my proceeds from the book are going towards our Marshall Plan for Afghanistan. I believe in this plan, and anything you can do to help me get the word out is appreciated! I am blessed with the greatest friends in the world. You are all so wonderful!
I hope you all get a chance to read my book when it comes out on October 19; I promise you will really enjoy some of the extraordinary anecdotes and memorable moments of advice!
With Love and High Hopes,
This week has been a whirlwind of excitement.
After three years, we launched the book and our model village this week in NY with events at Bulgari and the Republican Women’s Club as well as interviews on Fox & Friends, CNN, and Hannity. Next up: Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and Hucksbee! I’m truly blessed by the response to the book and want to THANK YOU for your encouragement and support! It means the world to me.
I have included a link to the CNN interview and a few photos from some of the events. Take a look!
Would you consider watching the CNN interview and sharing it with others? It’s important to me to get the word out about not only the the book but the significant opportunity to make a lasting difference overseas.
If you have read Diplomacy and Diamonds, I’d be grateful if you would take a few minutes to post a review on Amazon.
