Giving Back

After much thought, I have decided that part of my profits from the book will be donated to three different organizations. The first is the ALS Association they were such a support during my dad’s battle with the disease. I will never forget how many times the association was brought up by my parents and the organization’s willingness to help. The second will be through Donors Choose because my mom loved her teaching job, I will be able to help other teachers, locally as well. The third organization was recently started by a friend of mine, who lost her best friend and cousin to cystic fibrosis. She started the Rachel State Foundation in order to bring awareness to this terrible genetic disease.

I have included the links to these organizations, if you are able to give back, even a little, every little bit counts.

 

Always,

Why Write a Book?

Within the last couple of months I have spoken to a few friends about the book I have been writing. This is a question I get asked often. To be honest, I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, until this book the only thing I had written was in my journal and the occasional boy band fan fictions of my youth. Never had I written something like this before, something so intense, truthful and unashamed for other people to read. I started writing…well typing and honestly I thought this was going to  be a project I started and then never finished, I have a nasty habit of that.  Most people weren’t aware that I was writing something, I made sure not to tell a lot of people in case I didn’t finish it. My biggest fear would have been to tell people some excuse as to why this book never got finished. Here we are weeks to a couple of months away from my memoir being self published and launching I am still overwhelmed with the sense of accomplishing the book, starting an LLC to self publish and completing a goal I had set back at the beginning of the year. The next couple of months is going to be exciting and I cannot wait to get started on this journey.

Always,

J
