Self-publishing: Making the Dream Come True


You are invited to join me at Beth Overmyer's blog 
for the "unofficial" unveiling of 
Girls Succeed: Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women. 
Leave a comment to win a PDF copy or format of your choice.
Contest ends 11:59 pm October 12.


Today is a BIG day for me because my dream was to publish this book for girls with the goal to inspire and empower them to make their dreams come true. Perhaps knowing my dream is now a reality will help them realize all the possibilities can be theirs too.


I have so many folks to thank for helping me along the way--Warm thanks to the marvelous women who took the time to share their stories with me. Each one of them did so because they wanted to inspire and empower girls to make their dreams come true.

Thank you to the Koffee Kuppe Writers, the Fremont Library Writers Group, and to the Children’s Non-fiction Online Writers who helped to nurture and shape these stories for the readers.

Many thanks to all the girls who read and offered feedback on the stories and to those who took time to suggest careers for the book. Appreciation is extended to teachers Mrs. Blake, Mrs. Blamer, Mrs. Cooper, and Mrs. Creemer who shared the stories with their students.

Hopefully word will get out that this interactive ebook is now available at Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. 

In November I plan to publish a FREE study guide to accompany the book.


Look for the Official launch party in November! Lots of prizes and cyber-goodies. Squeeeeeeeeeeee---sorry I just had to do that. Thanks for helping me celebrate early.
