Sometimes we, bloggers, break free from scheduled posts and have silly fun with memes â€“ posts that spread throughout the blogosphere. Today, I am excited to participate in â€œThe 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.â€œ
Iâ€™m happy to keep this going by answering the following questions about my book Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ll Do It Myself, which reflects my independent nature. Iâ€™ve recently added the subtitle â€œCerebral Palsy Canâ€™t Stop Meâ€ 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 Iâ€™ve learned in hopes of making someone elseâ€™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.
