My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Lookup, move forward. Book Available June 1st.

Dear Cruisinwithcricket blog friends:

I am excited to share some news!  My book:  Look up, move forward. Finding my resilience while losing my vision will be ready June 1st!  I wanted to share with you readers first!

I started writing my first blogpost with my second guide dog, Cricket in 2009.  I have loved writing and sharing our adventures.  I have loved connecting and hearing from others.  It was in this space where someone asked me if I had written a book.  I went from a book? to not being able to get that crazy idea out of my head!  After over a  year of working on this project with an amazing writer, Amy Hackworth - our book is being published to be ready for a speaking engagement on June 1!  Before we hold our book launch party, before I speak to various groups in June, before anything else; I wanted to share it with the amazing readers of cruisinwithcricket who first encouraged me to write.  Through your comments, emails, calls and encouragements you reminded me that my story matters just like each of yours does.  You supported me as I shared musings in my days of challenges, humorous moments, and victories.  As different experiences happened throughout the day, I found myself thinking I need to blog about this.  Writing became an outlet of finding my resilience.

I'm excited to start a new blog:  Look up, Move Forward.  I'm even more excited to hear from others on what their look up, move forward is in their life.   (Teaser the story of this title is in chapter 18 :).  

As a reader of Cruisinwithcricket, I'm offering you my book for $10 (includes shipping) if you order before June 1st.  Before the website is even up, I wanted to share with our cruisinwithcricket readers!

So, if you'd like to order a book, please send a check/cash to Resilient Vision, 1355 N. Main, Ste, 1, Bountiful, Utah 84010.  I would love to send you a signed book.  The book will be available in other formats as soon as possible.  Watch for further details.  And thanks again!  I hope to hear from you!!
