Today I’m swapping blogs with author J.Q Rose. Be sure to check out my blog on how I was inspired to write here.
Kaitlin, Thank you so much for swapping blogs with me today. I appreciate the opportunity to shout about my book written especially for 9 to 13 year old girls, Girls Succeed. I have two daughters and now a granddaughter so I have a special place in my heart for girls and for encouraging them to achieve their dreams.
My Inspiration for Writing
Girls Succeed: Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women by J.Q. Rose
I was inspired to write a book for girls after working four summers at Camp Newaygo, a girls’ residence camp in Michigan. I met the most amazing young women who were counselors and energetic campers who kept life interesting! I marveled at the potential for the futures of these smart, enthusiastic girls. Faced with so many possibilities for careers, I wondered what choices they would make.
Unlike my era of high school graduates when girls were limited to career choices of teacher, nurse, and secretary, today’s girls face so many more possibilities of vocations in science, business, athletics, and more. How could they decide? This e-book gives them information on careers, but the stories also inspire and empower them to pursue their dreams and make them come true.
Each chapter begins with an inspirational quote which I hope will touch the reader’s heart and use it as a reminder to keep her focused on her dream. As I wrote the book, I kept Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote in mind, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
It was a privilege to interview the fifteen remarkable women. I felt very special to have them trust me to tell their stories. Now I look forward to getting the ebook out to readers and hope to inspire them to follow their dreams.
Back Cover: An interactive e-book filled with dreams and passion to inspire, entertain, and empower girls. Fifteen remarkable career women in a variety of occupations share their stories about their work and the path they took to become successful in their dream careers. These diverse careers encompass women in the arts, business, science, medicine, ministry, entertainment, and sports. Learn about contemporary women who have discovered cures to stamp out disease, made people laugh, earned Olympic and Paralympic gold medals, and crossed the country in the cab of an eighteen wheeler.
The e-book is available now at the Back to School Special Price of $1.99. A Study Guide to accompany the book is available online for 99 cents. However, if you email me at jqrose02 at gmail dot.com, I will send a PDF copy to you FREE.
