The Water is Wonderful!

coverI am an ambivalent author no more!  In fact, I am getting very psyched for the launch of The Can Do Chronicles next Friday, October 4. The journey getting here has been a bit like trying to decide whether to jump into the chilly water after driving for hours to get to the lake…  I have jumped in and the water is great!  Or, perhaps a more appropriate metaphor is the fishbowl… I am in the fishbowl, in oh-so-many ways.  The water is great and I am swimming like a proverbial fish.

As my friends and colleagues are learning that I have written and am publishing the e-book, I am getting calls and questions asking “so, what’s it about?”  It is the story of the last three years of my life, and my husband Ned’s life by association. But, more than the ups and downs and ins and outs of his job loss, my hip replacement and chemo and our 400 mile move, it is the story about what changed inside of me during these months and years – and how I went from having a semi-permanent chip on my shoulder to a pretty permanent song in my heart.

It is also a guide to taking the “but” out of “yes, but” for those who want to use it that way. I introduce the three central questions that now guide all of my decision making. The questions seem so deceptively easy to ask, yet the answers are not always easy to hear – a conundrum to be sure!  But those tricky little questions work.  Yes, they work wonders.

To celebrate the launch, for the first three days the book will cost only $2.99. That’s less than a coffee at Starbucks. After that, the price goes up to $4.99 – less than a good glass of Pinot Gris. For under $5 you can change your life.  That’s quite a deal.

Please help me pass the word as the launch gets closer!  Follow and share The Can Do Chronicles on Facebook. You will be glad you did.

Thanks and always remember
