I AM OFFICIAL!

I just joined the National Society of Newspaper Columnists at the behest of a syndicated columnist who started reading my book.  I am officially a writer, in case you doubted it for one minute!

I know it is hard to believe that I was a selective mute in grade school but baby, look at me now!

IT ALL STARTED HERE ON WORDPRESS WITH ONE LITTLE BLOG!

THANK YOU TO MY BLOG MASTER FOR PUTTING ME ON WORDPRESS.   I blogged a little blog.  A few people read it.  I blogged again – another little blog. People visited and viewed it.  I found I had an outlet to my voice.  I blogged again and again.  All little blogs. Now I have a book.  It is available for circulation in my local library.  One of my clients ordered a book and donated it to her local library.

“My father would be so proud,” my mother would tell me.   He revered books. My mother revered crafts.  As you can see, I had no shot at being a big business person from the very beginning!  But, I have already been on one podcast, one radio talk show, am scheduled to do a book talk, am scheduled to be on a local public access t v interview show, and will be on a podcast radio show -that operates out of Durham, NC.  And my book just debuted Oct. 6th!   “Not too shabby,” my friend would say.

If YOU WANT TO BUY A COPY FOR YOUR LIBRARY, THAT WOULD BE A FABULOUS CHANUKAH GIFT TO ME AND TO OTHERS WHO ARE AGING.  AND 18% of the proceeds goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering – if not for our sakes, then for the sake of our children.

p.s.  I AM FIVE FULL CHAPTERS INTO MY NEXT BOOK!

 

 

 

 

I will be on PATV out of Great Neck on Dec. 12th at 8 PM. Details to follow.

I was invited by my blog master, to talk about my book RAGING AGAINST AGING on her show SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.   THOSE OF YOU ON THE FENCE ABOUT BUYING MY BOOK, PLEASE TUNE IN.  YOU MAY DECIDE BUY MORE THAN ONE.  YOU MAY DECIDE THAT THEY ARE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT FOR YOUR FRIEND, SISTER, SISTER-IN-LAW, MOTHER, MOTHER-IN-LAW, OR GRANDMA.  Men have read my book and have approved.  Non-Jewish women have read my book and identified.    People who do not know me have read my book and have given me the thumbs up.  I am you and I write about what it is REALLY like to be sixty-plus.

 

So this is the POWER of the internet!

I posted a podcast on wordpress, Facebook, and Linked In.  A rabbi read the post, listened to the podcast, and contacted me and wants me to do a workshop about…AGING, of course.  From blog, to chapter, to chapters, to book, to writing on the blog site, to sharing on Facebook and Linked In, to a workshop.   This is the POWER of the INTERNET!

Will post details when I know the details!

ANOTHER FIVE STAR REVIEW. THANK YOU! AND UPDATE below:

on October 17, 2017
It is clear that Jacqueline Becker has no intention of “going quietly into the night”as she rages against aging. She can kick and scream, stretch and kvetch to her heart’s content, but in the meantime she is totally engaged with the business of living.Her endless curiosity, her love for her family and friends and thoughts about the challenges and rewards of both parenting and grand-parenting , make reading her book as serious reflection on growing older as well as an opportunity to laugh out loud about the absurdity of life in all its messy complexity.Jacqueline Becker can rage all she wants, but her vibrant spirit and lust for life guarantee that she will remain forever young at heart.
TO DATE :  30 books sold and 2 kindle sales.  I hope you all enjoy this book.

Another one! Thank you!

“Jackie hits “the nail on the head” with this very funny, true to this passage of life, collection of anecdotal short stories. It makes the perfect gift for all my peers! I’ve already shared it with dozens of very appreciative recipients worldwide! EVERYONE will LOVE this easy and amusing, uplifting ,cheerful
read!  A great view on aging that we can all relate to. Yeh!!!!!! Well done Jackie Becker!”

THANK YOU!!!!
