August 4 question - What is your favorite writing craft book? Think of a book that every time you read it you learn something or you are inspired to write or try the new technique. And why? At this point in my writing career, I am interested in telling life stories. I have taught life storytelling classes on and off for 20 years, so I am reading a lot of books about writing memoir and life stories. One of the best, easiest to read and follow, is How to Write Your Own Life Story by Lois Daniel. She starts out with 10 tips to make writing your story easy and effective, then throws out topics to write about with examples from her students and her stories. She includes researching for the facts, revising, and publishing. So much inspiration to keep writing and learning in the pages of this book. I recommend it whether you are in the beginning, middle or end phases of writing life stories.

|Girls Succeed! Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women|
Non-fiction biographies of 16 contemporary role models for girls 10+ years old
UPDATE: I have been insecure about creating a paperback book through amazon, but today I am doing a happy dance as I write this!! Yes, it is difficult to type and dance at the same time.
You may be sick of hearing about my book for middle-grade girls, Girls Succeed! Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women. After all, the first edition came out in 2010 as an eBook. Needless to say, it was ahead of its time. The first eBook didn't have active links. Eventually, the hyperlinks came along adding a cool feature to the book for readers. But, not many folks knew about eBooks, and they were not interested in purchasing eBooks. Now kids are online all the time. It's just part of their everyday lives, thanks to Covid, and video games.
TODAY! Girls Succeed! is now available in a new, updated and revised edition, including new content! AND it is now in print! Yes, that eliminates the interactive attraction, but my 12-year-old granddaughter wanted the book in print. So, I gave in.
NOW! The eBook and Paperback to inspire girls to dream big are ready for girls 10+ and older.
EVEN BETTER! During this launch period, the eBook is only 99 cents!

I am no longer insecure about publishing a paperback with images. Thank you for indulging me through this rant about the books.
