As many of you know, I went outside my comfort zone and published my book about Retirement Transition. As some have pointed out to me, many people (especially many bloggers) dream about writing a book, but few work actually do. Recently I was reminded that a dream is not a goal without actual plans to achieve it; if you never take action, it is merely a fantasy. So with the encouragement of some friends (both on-line and IRL) I turned my dream into reality and executed the plan, self-publishing my book!
Now, I’ve been informed, the new plan needs to be promoting the book. I am not a marketer, but I’ve had advice from a few. Once again, this is going outside my comfort zone! Self-promotion has never been a strong point for me. So I am very pleased when someone reaches out to help. I’ve given my first interview about writing the book!
I am so pleased to be highlighted on Sue’s blog. “Sizzling Sue” is a wonderful blogger from Australia. Also relatively recently retired, she is an active blogger and FB-er, a runner, a grandma, and a caregiver…. among other things. She has inspired me many times with her insights into healthy living and thriving in retirement. Please check out the interview she did with me here:
Sue asked some great questions about my writing inspiration and writing process. I hope you enjoy learning more about it, as well as check out some of Sue’s other posts.
