This is a big week for me. On August 7th, I’ll be heading to the Catholic Marketing Network’s annual trade show. This year the show will take place in Somerset, NJ and I’ll be joining a “who’s who” of prominent Catholic authors and personalities as we come together to showcase our latest works. It will be a big thrill to officially debut my latest book, Listen To Your Blessed Mother, and to meet many of the retailers who will be carrying the book.
While at the trade show, I’ll be making several appearances (in person and on the radio). Here is my current schedule:
Author Reception (Grand Ballroom, DoubleTree Hotel)
Wednesday, August 7, 5:15 to 6:45 pm
Author Booth Signings (Liguori Booth #708)
Thursday, August 8th, 3:30 to 4:30 pm
Catholic Connection with Teresa Tomeo
Thursday August 8th at 9:40 am Eastern
EWTN Radio “Live from the CMN” with Thom Price
Friday August 9th at 10:15 am Eastern
Some people have asked me why I felt the desire to write a book about the Blessed Mother. Aren’t there already many books about Mary? To be totally honest, although several books have been written about Our Lady, there was a void. When I searched for a book that focused on Mary’s words in Scripture, I couldn’t find one. As a result, I felt called to write it. As I started to work on the project, I made the decision to also include all of Mary’s Biblical appearances, even when her spoken words were not recorded. The end result is that through this book, you’ll learn how to “hear” the Blessed Mother speak to you through the pages of the Bible. And her message is POWERFUL!
If you’ve ever wanted to get closer to Mary, if you want to better understand her words in Scripture or if you’re looking for a resource for your prayer group or Bible study, this book is for you. The reflection questions at the end of each chapter will help guide you, as you “listen” to Mary’s voice speaking directly to you.

Listen To Your Blessed Mother!
?Biblical, personal, engaging, and thought provoking are just a few words that come to mind when reading this wonderful book! The Virgin Mary truly is our BLESSED Mother, and listening to her words in Scripture can help us to become blessed, too. Gary Zimak has done a great service for both Catholics and non-Catholics in offering a book that unpacks the biblical words of Mary in a very conversational and easy-to-follow style. The reflection questions and points to ponder at the end of each section will be of great benefit to the reader, too! I highly recommend this book!?
