HotFlash Round-Up — Oct. 11

I have been enjoying the end of summer/beginning of fall by taking some time away from writing, enjoying a vacation with my wife, and focusing on my book launch. I’m pleased to note that the cooler weather is decreasing the instances of my hot flashes. I hope it’s doing the same for you!

For those of you who don’t already know, I am a children’s book author and just last week launched a new children’s chapter book series — The Liz & Toby Adventures. These are slightly spooky stories primarily for the 7–11 age group. The first book is My Dog Sees Ghosts and is available now for just $0.99 on Amazon.

While it may seem like my personal career doesn’t really belong in this publication about the challenges of midlife, it definitely does. This is a new career for me, something I am pursuing post-50, and I hope to inspire you to pursue your long-held dreams, whatever they may be!

Here’s a recap of the stories published in the past week or so:

Preparing for a Book Launch

This is a humorous glimpse behind-the-scenes of my recent book launch.

Riding the Menopause Roller Coaster

This week I was caught off guard not as much by my own hormonal roller coaster, but by the ride my wife was on. Might you be experiencing menopausal symptoms and not realize that’s what they are?

Why Do We Love Children’s Book?

I think a lot of adults love children’s books. In this article, I analyze the results of a recent survey I did on which are our favorites and why.

Peace,

Dakota
