Welcome Readers, Book Bloggers, and All-New Friends!
Who would have imagined in just a few short weeks, here we are, being sheltered at home due to a Virus Pandemic? I never saw this coming! I’m sure many would have never seen this coming. It has now changed a usually slower time for book sales and reviews to a huge literary e-book sales boom!
With many avid readers forced to stay home from work, colleges, and little ones from schools, not sure how long these bans and restrictions will remain, I can at least help with some author news, new books, and updates to help you pass the time.
Just as this past week as most of our authors were giving back through their ebooks and offering them FREE or deeply discounted. Cat is still keeping them going with Podcasts, Author Interviews, and Amy Bovaird is no different.
She just released another new book!
So let’s see what Amy’s been up to and about her new book! 💞📚📚🐈🐈 Cat
OUR MOBILITY and MEMOIRIST AUTHOR, AMY BOVAIRD HAS RELEASED a NEW E-BOOK Hitting A Home Run: Blind and Thriving
ABOUT THE BOOK:
It is 1988. After three years of teaching English as a Second Language in Latin America, Amy Bovaird is offered a position in Indonesia, halfway across the world. On this archipelago, Bovaird has the opportunity to learn about new cultures.
But there is a problem. In the break between jobs, Bovaird pays a visit to her local eye doctor for what she believes will be a routine upgrade of her glasses’ prescription. A lengthy examination with a retinal specialist follows. The news she receives turns out to be a challenge. She is losing her vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa, a condition she can’t even pronounce and for which there is no cure.
Bovaird faces a dilemma. Should she risk possible danger with her debilitating vision to pursue her dream contract abroad or stay at home near the safety of family?
You’ll need to give a quick read as it was picked as Amazon Kindles #1 Hot New Travel Short Read Release! And why Amy is a Medal and Award-winning Author! And she offers it for readers right now at just .99 CENTS …
A MESSAGE FROM Ms. Bovaird:
“This past week was a big week for me, readers! I’ve been working on sharing more key experiences to encourage others, especially those with sight loss. But really everyone.
My new booklet just came out!
WITH the world has just been diagnosed with the COVID-19, an unprecedented pandemic, and our very lives feel, and have been, threatened by something out of our control. Thirty-two years ago, my security and life as I knew it felt threatened. Losing my vision was out of my control.
The pain of an unexpected diagnosis of any proportion messes with our mind. I’m sure you will be able to relate to the pain and fear I faced back in 1988. No one else I knew struggled with this problem and I didn’t want anyone’s pity so I kept silent about it. I felt isolated and alone as many of you do right now, physically.
I had a choice to make, like all of us today.
How are we going to live our lives in the middle of a challenge?
Which emotion will rise to the surface?
Although my dilemma seems opposite to what we are facing right now, in which we are told NOT to travel but to stay at home, it was scary.
I hope you will take time to read Hitting a Home Run: Blind and Thriving, if you didn’t take advantage of it a few weeks ago, you can still read it now on Amazon.
