Sometimes we, bloggers, break free from scheduled posts and have silly fun with memes – posts that spread throughout the blogosphere. Today, I am excited to participate in “The Next Big Thing: Authors Tagging Authors!"
I was kindly tagged by Wendy Naarup, author of Wake Up! Traveling from Good Enough to Great. As I wrote in my Amazon review, :Wake Up! is Wendy’s incredible story of overcoming adversity and becoming the happy, successful person she was meant to be. I cried, laughed and cheered. If you are living on auto-pilot, grab your Kleenex and be prepared to be awakened.“
I’m happy to keep this going by answering the following questions about my book I’ll Do It Myself – available for half price on the Amazon Kindle until Tuesday morning – and then tagging five more authors to do the same.
What is the working title of your book? My book title is I’ll Do It Myself, which reflects my independent nature. I’ve recently added the subtitle “Cerebral Palsy Can’t Stop Me” to the Kindle edition to give my book a slightly better chance of being found amidst the millions of books available on Amazon.
Where did the idea come from for the book? I dreamt of writing this book, my autobiography, since I was around the age of ten. Egotistical? Perhaps. I saw it more as part of my legacy, as my way of passing on the lessons I’ve learned in hopes of making someone else’s life a little easier, as my way of showing that having cerebral palsy is not a death sentence, but rather a life sentence.
What genre does your book fall under? My book is an autobiography, a memoir, for those who are looking for an inspiring read.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Definitely Julia Roberts! Her bubbly energy and love for fun is perfect.
Now, I am pleased to tag the following five authors who I am privileged to call friends:
- Karen Putz, author of Barefoot Water Skiing, From Weekend Warrior to Competitor
- Marti Lawrence, author of River of Possibilities
- Suzie Cheel, author of Emergings: A Meditation on the Emotions of Change
- Michelle Vandepas, author of Two Empty Bedrooms, One Woman’s Journey of Frustration, Hope and Joy Through Foster Parenting and Adoption
- Becky McCray, co-author of Small Town Rules
Happy reading!If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a cafe mocha. Thanks kindly.
