Authors Need and Want Honest Reviews

It has been brought to my attention that some readers are having problems leaving a book review on Amazon. Here ya go:
1. Go to Amazon.com
2. Type in the name of the book you wish to review.
3. Click on the book title.
4. Click on a review star or scroll down to "write a customer review". and click on that.
5. Write your review in the space provided.
6. Click submit.
You will be given a message that your review is under review (yea, I know...redundant) and that you will receive an e-mail notifying you when your review is approved for publication.
A book review is generally two paragraphs detailing your thoughts on the writing and subject matter of the book. Reviews are extremely important to the public success of a novel and especially crucial to an author's state-of-mind.
All authors appreciate a positive review, but honesty is the best compliment a reader can give a writer.
Please consider reviewing the books you read. Amazon is only one of many on-line venues. Good Reads is another place that accepts reader reviews.
Thank you for allowing me to practice my teacher skills while continuing to recover from my recent retirement from the educational sector:)

My Challenge:
I review daily but not always for my WV author friends. I vow to post review more frequently. How 'bout you?
Game On!

A Sea of Orange Hope

With a forecast for rain and cool temperatures, many felt the 2018 Walk for MS might be a sloppy mess; but when I arrives in Morgantown, West Virginia, I found an optimistic, celebratory atmosphere that no storm could dampen. Clouds dispersed and skies cleared, knowing that the heavens  could not compete with the storm happening on the ground at the  Waterfront.







The true champions had arrived and their name was Warrior.



Tents were erected, tables arranged, team shirt distributed, books stacked, (I got to share I Have MS. What's Your super Power? !!!!)






acknowledgements made, participants in place, and the walk began,






















with Team Tiffany in the lead. My new MS friend, Tiffany Albright, is an inspiration. she single-handedly recruited an amazing team of walkers that outnumbered any other congregation in attendance. Her numbers were amazing in monetary contributions and the enthusiasm of her teammates was more than inspiring. 

Event though I did not personally join the walkers, my day was fu…

Aubagio Followup

WOW!

Last evening I attended an area meeting to learn more about Aubagio, one of the three oral MS medications on the market. General MS physician Mark Hospodar provided the informational portion of the session, complete with a slide presentation full of facts about multiple sclerosis. It was very basic and mostly repetitive for those pro-active MS sponges. Not mind-blowing stuff, but pretty heavy on the importance of medicating upon diagnosis.
Enough to convince me to take a closer look at my own choice to remain MS drug free.

It was an intimate group of approximately a dozen women plus the doctor. Very relaxed, informal, and free of judgement. We were all there for the same reason with the same goal in mind: to discover the "wonder" drug, or at least something closer to a promised remedy. (In addition to the fantastic Italian cuisine at Muriale's Restaurant. Yum!:)

We heard from Aubagio veteran, Renee, who told her journey with her initial diagnosis s well as her life with …

MS and Exercise

I don't know about you, but sometimes (most of the time) the motivation to exercise is just not there. And that is just plain crazy.

I am more than aware of the positive effects of daily exercise. I always feels better, both physically and mentally, after taking time to stretch, bend, and force my body to meet the challenge of movement. My biggest issue is the accountability. Exercising alone means no one can attest to your commitment. Unfortunately group gym, spa, or class situations are not financially nor logically an option for many of us.

And sometimes, like this morning, it is even an effort to fire up the DVD player in order to access one of my many yoga videos. Even though that cute little blond instructor coos encouraging words my way, her interest in me is purely superficial. We know nothing about one another. 

According to healthcare.com the following chart shows the seven best exercises for living with MS. They are easy, doable and require no equipment or additional cost.…
