Get creative!Read in the sea,

Read it with your dog,

Snap a picture or video yourself reading your favorite part of Alzheimer's Trippin' with George



I am excited about a promotion idea and I HOPE that you will get excited too.  I think it will be fun!

I will talk about that first and then, after that,  I will give you a peek into what is happening now.

Video Trailer
I have learned that books have to have trailers now days. Just like a movie.

 I bought one for cheap.   It is actually pretty good, considering.  I will share it in the next post, it isn't quite done yet.

But I got an idea of just a video showing people reading Alzheimer's Trippin' with George.  Maybe I will add it to the professional video I have or make one on its own... who knows.

BUT I would like to get pictures and videos of YOU or your pets or stranger…

Riding Writing Flying

Yesterday I went and rode the Van Fleet Trail.  It is one of my favorite trails.  Some people find it boring, so very straight and not a single hill.  But it goes through the Green Swamp.  So we get to see wildlife.

Yesterday I saw a wild turkey and three very LARGE otter.  I rode with a trike group that was visiting our area.  There were two velo-mobiles riding with us.


I AM FEELING CELEBRITY

I got a poem from Kathie Heimsoth, my neighbor and fellow author.  She framed it for me.


Last week Heather that takes pictures for the trail newsletter was out with her camera.  Then I got my picture on the Withlacoochee Trail facebook page!  I love the picture.


GOOD FEEDBACK

And I have to share this news.  So excited to get good feedback on my book.  The book club in my neighborhood chose my book for their April book to read and discuss.  I gave them two copies to pass around.  One of the guys wrote me an email today and said, "I am reading your book and I can't put it down."

What…

Neighbors, Friends, Simultaneous Published Authors!

What fun it was this fall when my biking friend and neighbor returned to Florida to announce that she had just published her first book.  ME TOO! I said.  Well, almost.  It officially releases March 21, 2019. 






Alzheimer's Trippin' with George - book 1 in the series - is now available to order and receive in paperback.

THE KINDLE

The kindle is  ready for pre-release orders.  Then it is sent to people's devices on March 21st.  On that date, the price goes way up!

If I get 100 pre-orders and some good reviews, then Amazon will take notice and start helping promote the book.  Which would be great if more beginning caregivers could find it and feel more confident and competent because of it.

SPEAKING OF...

I have now three speaking engagements at Alzheimer's Caregiver Support Groups in the area.

The first one is this week!

If these go well I will be looking for engagements in other areas of the state.

I stopped in at Trailside.bike where I used to work while caring for…

Reflections on the Cover Reveal Video

If you had trouble getting the Book Cover Reveal Video to work, Click Here to watch it.

I had so much fun!  Thank you for sharing in this moment with me.

The morning after the reveal I recorded another video.  And below that are the links to the book on Amazon. 

Don't forget to leave a fair review on Amazon!  I need those to get suggested to folks by Amazon.  Just one or two sentences is all that is needed to help others find the book.  If you can, use one or two of these key words in your review so others that you think might enjoy the book can find it!  Alzheimer's, Caregiving, Travel and Trikes. 

I especially need reviews from folks who love someone with Alzheimers, are Caregivers, or who ride trikes and biketrails.



Some people had trouble playing the video last night so if this video doesn't play for you, try this link.
