It comes as no surprise that Jane Carroll’s book, Bertha Size Your Life! hit the number one spot on Amazon Kindle this week. The book has become a sensation and inspiration for baby boomers that have hit a wall in their life and feel they can’t go on.

Carroll knew she had a hit on her hands when Bertha popped into her head on an otherwise uneventful day eight years ago, but once the book was published she struggled with the marketing side of the business. After burning through her savings while trying unsuccessfully to promote her book she realized she would have to go back to work and left her dream behind.

In the fall of 2011 Carroll decided she had wasted enough time and took action to create her dream of becoming a bestselling author. She entered The Extreme Author Makeover Contest sponsored by MasterKoda.com (a book and author promotional service) and won a promotional package. That is when things started to turn around for her.

“Winning that contest was like opening the flood gates of success,” Carroll states. “Even before the promotions started doors were flying open for me. It’s like Bertha says in the book, ‘When life hands you an ostrich—make a boa!’”

Those looking for humor, wisdom and motivation wrapped up in one book would do well to pick up a copy of Bertha Size your Life!

It’s About Time…

IMG_6039-2 copy

There are a lot of changes… losses of sorts… I should feel empty… but instead… I feel freedom… like it all fluttered out to make space for something else… or maybe not… maybe there is nothing else for me…

But… I don’t really believe that… there’s always something else… it might not be what I think I want it to be… but there is always something else…

That’s a nice thought…

There’s always something else… always something more… always something fresh… always a place to land when I fall… there is always something else…

Not sure how this writing will go… not sure where I want it to go…

Writing opens my heart and fills me with possibilities… possibilities that are sometimes painful… sometimes scary… sometimes it’s easier to stay closed…

At least… it was… but like that bud… sooner or later… being closed hurts too much and you have to open… flower… all over again… even though you know the blossom will eventually wilt… and fall away… it has to be done…

I’m 62 years old… don’t I think it’s time?

It’s time… isn’t it?

It is…

So… I will write… and on the days that it pleases me… I will share my words with the world… and on the days that it doesn’t… I will ponder them and squander them until another day…

Bertha flutters by… it’s about time… she whisper shouts as she goes…
