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.

Back to talking about the party.  Max Schulman, who co-wrote three books about Citrus Trails came with champagne so we could all toast after the video played.  Neato! 

And then Helen Ciampi stood up, she leads the Floral City Support group and she announced that I would be speaking at their meeting on February 15.  So much support!

I am so excited to finally have the books up and available.  It has been a roller coaster ride of joy and frustration.  But then, I should be used to that caring for George on the Withlacoochee Trail the last few years.

I think if you have a gmail account you can follow this blog.  And whenever you want to check in, it is now under the url www.susanstraley.com That will help!

Enjoy your moments, they are finite.

ALZHEIMER’S TRIPPIN’ with George

Diagnosis to Discovery in 10,000 Miles
By Susan Straley

What would you do if you learned that your spouse or partner has progressive dementia, possibly Alzheimer’s disease? 
This is the brutally honest journal of one spouse and reluctant caregiver that “ran for the hills.” Of course she took her husband George along. 
What challenges did Susan encounter?  Can she enjoy the present — a journey across the U.S.A. -  while worrying about the future?  How do she and George deal with his increasing dementia symptoms? 
And the biggest question of all, after 40 years together, can they remain married and loving through it all?  Travel along with George and Susan.  You will learn, you will laugh and maybe sh…

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…
