Thank you for turning over to review my book. You’re wondering if you should buy it; I’m wondering if I should have published it! That’s good; we’ve made a connection.
Still unsure? Ok, let’s do a process of elimination. It’s not a travel guide or a story about a midlife crisis. It’s most certainly not a story about a fat man named Bob. This is a memoir about a sassy blonde on a road trip around Australia with her Harley Davidson—Fat Bob, and trailer, Mr T! But don’t worry; you don’t need to know anything about riding a motorcycle—you’ll be my pillion passenger. We’ll revisit the sources of my entertaining stories: the amazing places I visited, the fabulous people with generous spirits I met, and the interesting, and often hilarious, situations I found myself in (there are a number of those so you’ll have a laugh or two). Be warned—I’m a little unorthodox. I may lead you astray, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You’ll love a life behind bars—handlebars, that is. Together we’ll rediscover passions, connect to gut instincts, break a few rules, and throw responsibility to the wind. You’ll hear some motivational “tool box” preaching on being happy, not bartering with time you think you have, and taking off your grumpy pants. I’m big on that, as life is short. I’ll show you don’t always need a plan, a map, or a GPS. You just need to start your journey. We’ll have a couple of crash and burns, but you’ll learn challenges are teachers, preparing you for better things down the road. You’ll appreciate age is no barrier, but attitude is. With platinum blonde hair, a Harley Davidson, and zebra print pajamas, I’m not fading out anytime soon; it’s loud and proud for me! And for you! Feeling a little fearful, anxious, or doubtful? Fabulous! That means you’re listening to your inner rumble. This book will inspire you. You’ll be fist pumping the air screaming, “I’m going to chase my dreams, too!” If all of the above hasn’t enticed you, perhaps my last pitch will: Feeling stressed? Did you know a 2009 study by the University of Sussex found that reading for just six minutes could reduce stress levels by up to 68%? Well there you go, a story of mine a day will keep your stress levels at bay. :) Engine’s running—are you ready to enjoy the ride?
