We are 5 days away from our book launch!
I have received some questions about my motivation to write, my background, why in English, and more. I would love to share with you some answers and facts about “In Our Thirties”:
-Many of my friends turned 30 when I was still in my 20s. Seeing their different reactions, ways to approach the milestone birthday, and my own feelings about life closer to that age inspired me to explore what was the “big deal” about it. Great deal, indeed!
-I have always liked writing. I remember my first short stories when I was 8 years old or so. I started my first blog in 2007, but didn’t share it much. I officially started researching, blogging, and writing about being a thirtysomething in 2012.
-I decided to blog and write in English (my second language) not only as a way to improve my skills, but also because most of my adult memories are now in English since I have lived in the States for 15+ years. My childhood and teenage memories are in Spanish, my twenties’ and thirties’, in English.
-This non-fiction work is an insightful hybrid: part memoir, part anthology. Drawing on nearly a decade of research, “In Our Thirties” features my insights as a life coach & speaker and expert contributors on topics such as: People, Health, Spirit, Work, Money, and Living, together with more than fifty personal essays by thirtysomethings from around the world that I contacted via social media and word of mouth.
-“In Our Thirties” will be out this Thursday July 16th! Print book and eBook are already available on Amazon for orders. You don’t need a Kindle device to read the eBook, just download the Kindle app.
-Save The Date and stay tuned for the announcement of our Virtual Book Launch Party on Thursday, July 30th!
