You Can Decide How to React…

Inspiring Shareable Quote: Share This With Your Friends & Loved Ones

There are always things that are beyond your control. One can always deal with them by taking everything in stride without having to be brought low. Reacting positively is a good thing to nurture in one’s character. Your attitude is the one thing you have control over. It can be the deciding factor for you to come out on top of every situation.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou

Courage To Continue That Counts

Sweet Treat Thursday: Share this Quote and Image on Social Media to Inspire Your Friends & Loved Ones

The courage that counts. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill A Churchillism attributed to Winston Churchill for his relentless energy in getting things done. With his experience in peace and war, he understood the need for getting things done and keeping them that way.  “Keep buggering on” or KBO is how he ended almost every phone call. It  aptly describes this attitude.

Join Me in San Francisco: Help Make My Book a Bestseller at Bestseller Book Launch Party

Best-selling-books-logoLive or work near San Francisco? 

If so, join me Wednesday, May 30 between 6 and 9 pm PDT for a Bestseller Book Launch and Author Spotlight Party.

At this one-of-a-kind event, you'll have a chance to meet several of us authors in the business and non-fiction fields, including bestselling author Marci Shimoff and yours truly.

Of course, I'm inviting you to come out and support my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, which will be officially released two days later. 

Beyond Sugar Shock final coverHere's how the Betseller Book Launch Party works. You can attend for free, but what you'll do is purchase two books on Amazon that day (see details below). 

Then, you'll be able to share our (the authors') excitement and join in the celebration as our books blast to the top of the Amazon.com bestseller charts right there at the party. Isn't this an innovative idea for a party?

Special thanks to Alicia Dunams, a self-publishing expert and creator of the Bestseller in A Weekend business program. This Bestseller Book Launch Party is her brainchild.  

Please note that this Bestseller Book Launch Party is not a book signing — but I'll be glad to sign books — as many as you buy. 

Remember, you'll be an integral part of our success by purchasing two of the featured authors' books on Amazon.com on May 30, 2012, anytime between 12:01 am – 11:59 pm.

Again, I'm inviting you to get my book, Beyond Sugar Shock, during that time. (If you're not in San Francisco, I urge you to wait until June 5 to buy my book, because that's when we're holding the official book launch.)

To receive complimentary admission to the Bestseller Book Party:

1) You must show proof that you purchased 2 of the featured authors' books on May 30, 2012 when you arrive at the registration table. A print-out of an Amazon.com receipt will suffice. Or…

2) Purchase 2 of the featured authors' books (think: my book, please!) at the event between 6 and 9pm. I'll be there with my new laptop, so you can buy them with me watching, if you like. (I'll be happy to post for a photo, if you like too.) You must show proof of purchase before  you leave the party.

To join the other authors and me at the Bestseller Book Launch Party fun on Wed., May 30 in San Francisco, sign up here

Special thanks to USA Today for the Best-Selling Books image. Hope it was okay to use! If not, let me know and I'll promptly take it down!
