I’m A Published Author!

So HUGE news that I’ve been keeping under wraps…. I’m a published author!  Yep, you read that right.  My M.U.D. Life is now a BOOK as well as a blog!


This is something I’ve been working on since before Christmas, and actually working on this book has helped me.  As you all know, I’ve been struggling lately, but working on this book helped to pull me out of the darkness for little periods of time.  Each story I included in this book helped to remind me how important it is to live with Mindful Unique Decisions and helped to remind me to find joy in the everyday, to embrace your own personal story, and to continue to make healthy decisions for you.

I know not everybody reads blogs, so I wanted to reach a bigger audience and share my message with more people.  M.U.D. is a lifestyle that we all can embrace.

I was so excited when I got my proof copy in the mail today!  Right now the book is available for $8.10 (10% off) on Lulu.com.  In a few weeks it will be available to buy through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Ingram.

The book is broken down into the three main parts of M.U.D. (Mindful, Unique, Decisions) with stories relating to each.  To celebrate the release of my book I am holding a giveaway.  The winner will receive:

  • 1 signed personalized copy of My M.U.D. Life: Making Mindful Unique Decisions Every Day
  • 1 mini rock cairn

The giveaway will begin today, Friday, February 2 and end on Friday, February 16 with a winner being randomly chosen.

If you purchase or win a copy of my book, please be sure to review it on Lulu, Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

Check out the first review on Goodreads for My M.U.D. Life:

“If you are looking for a no nonsense, straightforward new look for your lifestyle then this is the book for you!

The author goes into great detail in how M.U.D. (Making Mindful Decisions), has transformed her life in many ways. You will learn how she came out of darkness and depression to make her life her own again. 

Along with her husband she changed her lifestyle, started to LIVE life! She fought thru her demons triumphantly and proudly, yes she still had bad days but hey who doesn’t! 

Its not a preachy do this do that kind of book, it’s one that shows you anything is possible if you make mindful unique decisions everyday and live your life for you!”

    • Thank you 🙂 Honestly I didn’t think my book was good enough, but I gave it to people who weren’t familiar with my blog and the feedback I got was amazing! So I decided to publish it and see what happens. I used Lulu.com to publish. There’s no upfront costs, they distribute to all the big retailers, they provide you with a lot of support, and you have complete creative control over your book. I highly recommend them. I’d say write about what you know, have others read it for feedback, and when you’re ready publish through Lulu 🙂
