Today’s post is my first cover reveal post, which I am very excited about 😍 I’ll be showing you the cover for a new release: Rats, Mice, And Other Things You Can’t Take to The Bank: An Inspirational Collection of Essays from Humorous to Simply Human by Leslie Handler. It is currently available on Amazon, so be sure to grab a copy for yourself.
Here is some information from the press release:
Written with warmth and resiliency, this book guides the reader through life’s ups and downs.as seen through the eyes and experiences of Handler. “I have had more than my fair share of challenges in my life,” Handler noted. “I have always tried to show my kids that we all face challenges, but to truly have a good life, we must learn how to react and deal with those challenges. No matter how bad a hand we think we were dealt, there’s always someone out there worse off than we are.” Now an international and award-winning syndicated columnist who also maintains a blog at LeslieGoesBoom, Handler, who was raised in Texas, took a detoured path to becoming a professional writer. She studied journalism in college, but embarked instead on a career in hotel management--a path that led her to meet her husband of more than 30 years. With two grown daughters out on their own, Handler changed course four years ago to use writing as way to confront, accept and battle situations and issues that gave her reasons to both laugh and cry.
“I hope that people will pick up this book and not read it in one sitting,” Handler explained. “Maybe they can read it when they have a few minutes waiting in a doctor’s office or in line at the grocery store or curled up on the sofa for a few quiet minutes. It is my wish that they give each story a chance to sink in and be felt. If readers can find themselves in some of the pages of my book, they might say ‘Aha, I’m not the only one.’”
While Handler is hoping to expand her reading audience with this book, she is also hoping to help bring attention to one challenge many people face but are often afraid to admit. A portion of her royalties will be going to National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Thank you for reading,
I’ll see you in my next post ♡
