Count Down to Book Launch - Day 4 - Persistence or Insanity?

November 30, 2019 Good Morning! Yesterday I was going to ride down to feed the goats, but I felt low in energy.  So I got as far as Floral City and decided to go feed the Zebra and Donkeys instead. I have been wondering lately why I am doing this. I spend a lot of time trying to promote the book. And the needle isn't moving much at all. I feel like a dung beetle pushing a big ball of manure up a hill. I have advertisements up on Amazon. Do you know, when you search for an item and it pops up at the top of your list that you can look around it to see the word "sponsored". If you click on that ad, the seller gets charged for that click. But if you scroll down the natural algorithms have it there again without the sponsored. Then the seller doesn't get charged for your ad. The more I work with Amazon I am amazed at their technological savvy AND how they have an army of millions of "wanna be" folks out there advertising and paying not o

Count Down to Book Launch - Day 5 - Black Friday Sale

November 11, 2019 Hello! It is Black Friday!  And the Kindle version of The Journey Continues - Alzheimer's Trippin' with George is on sale until December 4, 2019 for only $2.99.  Who do you know that could use a little inspiration, lift, fun? Thanksgiving was wonderful, thanks to the folks that joined me and sent greetings. Someone somewhere created this cool image.  Who does it belong to?  I would like to give credit where credit is due... or get permission to post it. Thanks to the artist and the owner.  It is pretty cool.  I got it from Jim Cook an Ohio Trike-rider.  He doesn't remember which trike site he found it. Here is my Count-down video.  Only 5 more days to the launch! It is another gorgeous day in our area of Florida. I am going to ride my trike down to feed the goats (about 16 miles down the trail). I have stored my vegetable and fruit scraps from a couple weeks to share with them. Then, if I get back in time, some friends are meeting at

Count Down to Book Launch - Day 6

Happy Thanksgiving! Preventing Alzheimer's A fellow former caregiver told me this week that he thinks those who have cared for someone with dementia tend to worry more about getting the symptoms. I don't know if that is true, but I was comforted by an article I read recently. The Alzheimer's Association put out a magazine this fall that has a great article in about genetic testing. In the article it talked about the RESEARCH and the nature vs nurture, genes vs environment. I will post what they said further down in this post... but right now I have to post.... COUNT DOWN TO LAUNCH Well, the kindle pre-orders are still sitting at six (6).  Sigh.  It is what it is!  The thing is, it sure does keep me busy, promoting the books... video, Facebook, Twitter, events, emails.    After the launch I may send out my resume to places in Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota.  I want to find a seasonal job near a bike trail.  I think it will be good... but it is sca

November 27, 2019 This is so exciting! Only seven more days to the launch on ebook/kindle of THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!

Coming Soon - Count Down to Launch and Holidays

Hello, It is Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Today I was interviewed on our local TV station.  They were nice enough to share the program with me.  I added the captions to clarify what we were talking about.  It is about nine minutes. How do you like that cover picture?  Ha ha, what does it look like?  Leave a comment and let me know.  The big thing was I offered the first 20 people who sign up to Join the fun here on this blog a FREE download of the Audio Book of Alzheimer's Trippin' with George.  If you don't get email alerts to let you know I have posted, then you need to click the "Join the Fun" tab above and enter you email. So... first about the books and then about the rest of life... THE JOURNEY CONTINUES Some of you have been asking when book two THE JOURNEY CONTINUES will be out on ebook.   You have been anxiously awaiting. December 4th it launches!   And guess what!  You can pre-order the ebook now and it will download on Wednesday,

Unfocused, Unqualified, Unsatified

Hello, It is often said that to achieve great things, you need to focus your energy on one thing.  You can't spread your energy over many many things or you won't excel at anything. I guess I am programmed to be mediocre.  Ha ha. I kind of timed things wrong.  You see the audio version of Alzheimer's Trippin' with George has just been launched.  With that launch is the task of writing and sending out press-releases, putting posts up on social media, and giving out lots of free copies to experts and audio-book fans in the hope that they will leave a review on Audible or Good Reads. I just got my first review of Alzheimer's Trippin' with George on Audible! This book was great! I was a caregiver for my mother who had Alzheimer’s for 10 years! It was very hard when she did get angry and aggressive. This book gave a sense of calm and patience. I look forward to the second half when it gets much more difficult to see how it is handled.
