I was raised to believe that all of human intelligence can be found on the shelves of our libraries. I have been told that my book RAGING AGAINST AGING is a mix of wisdom and wit. Anyone of the over 100 readers, please consider donating a copy to YOUR library. And remember, I donate a portion of proceedings to Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research for the sake of my children and grandchildren.
My mother would say: “Your father would be so proud.” My husband is proud. My grandson is proud. I am proud. My daughter is proud.
I grew up believing that a book was the ultimate achievement. Mine took a lifetime to write. Mine is about becoming the author of my life.
I was never interested in my larger family. I grew up in a small, insular community, and heard stories, and saw photos but no one put the stories and photos together. No one gave these people life. My mother was a very negative person. So, I turned my back, went to therapy, and spent years trying to untangle the web my mother had created. And now, I am lonely and aging, and my daughter had gotten my grandson interested in DNA and so, long story short, I managed TO FIND a real second cousin I never knew existed! And here we are. It is true you cannot pick your family members. BUT imagine how great it is to find a relative you connect with and actually like! It fills that emptiness and together you bond and fill in gaps and connect dots and share stories with. And MARLA is a pro at this- for real. I am just the lucky recipient! And if Marla and I lived closer we would probably light the Chanukah menorah together! And we will in our hearts!
Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 593-6364 or email or text me. HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN.
10 Days to my Book Talk and 12 until CHANUKAH!
(I can tell because I get the stats). THANK YOU FOR RECOMMENDING MY BOOK! THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS AND REVIEWS. AND PLEASE REMEMBER, I DONATE A PORTION TO MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING. LET’S DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO FIND THE CURE!
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!
My blog master read my book. She is suggesting that I turn this into theater – a one or two or three women play.
What do you think? Please answer if you have read my book.
