***Book Signing, March 21 at the Opelika Observer’s office***
If you are reading this, it means you may or may not like my writing. Perhaps I guilted you in to signing up for it….I certainly hope that’s not the case. If you are a fan, then I know you’ll like the three Chicken Soup for the Soul books featuring three of my stories.
I will be signing copies of the books at the Opelika Observer on March 21 between 11:00 and 1:00. The office is located in downtown Opelika at 225 S. 8th Street next to Gorham’s Barber Shop.
Since Aug 2013, I’ve had three different stories published in books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series:
“A Lifetime of Stuttering” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade: 101 Positive, Practical, and Powerful Stories about Making the Best of a Bad Situation
“Embracing my Uniqueness” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive for Kids: 101 Stories about Good Decisions, Self-Esteem, and Positive Thinking
Below is a review from www.momsteam.com
Be proud of what makes you different. Jody Fuller is a stutterer. As a kid, he hated that – it made him stand out in school when he wanted to blend in. He stayed silent a lot in class, fearful classmates would tease him about his stuttering. Then in eighth grade he realized being different from everyone else was a good thing! “I finally embraced that difference and ran with it,” Jody writes. “I always volunteered to read and even used oral presentations as an opportunity to showcase my comedic talents… I was in control and would not allow the anxiety or insecurity to control my feelings, attitude, or behavior.” Jody went on to become a speaker, comedian, writer, and soldier. “It’s never easy being a kid. It’s especially tough when you’re different, but it doesn’t have to be,” he writes. “The time to embrace your uniqueness is now.”
“Miracles in Uniform” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles Happen: 101 Inspirational Stories about Hope, Answered Prayers, and Divine Intervention
I really hope to see you there. The books are $15 but that includes a signature, a bookmark, and a hug. If you can’t make it, contact me for information on how you can get your hands on an autographed book…and bookmark.
I’ll have DVD’s available, too, for only $10.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All my best,
