All of our loyal Annie Acorn Publishing LLC readers know we love to write great fiction. In addition, we also offer some wonderful choices in the category of non-fiction as well. All April long, AAPub wishes to highlight for you some of our outstanding non-fiction offerings.
This week, we’re putting the spotlight on publications to help our readers overcome personal challenges in their lives. One universal battle we all may face at one time or another is the desire for a healthier body, and many times this involves losing weight.
Easier said than done, right?
No problem. In A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps it Off! by our very own Annie Acorn, we provide you with the solution. Dieting again? Losing the same ten pounds over and over? Here’s your answer!
Have you ever lost weight only to gain it all back? Have you ever yo-yoed up and down on the scales? Have you ever dealt with the dreaded plateaus? Then you are among friends. Anyone can lose a few pounds. Many of us already have. The difference is that I, Annie Acorn, am no longer like you. Several years ago, I lost more than 50 pounds, and I have maintained that weight loss for over 5 years – simply, easily, and without giving it much thought. On the pages of A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps It Off! I will share my secrets with you!
In early spring of 2006, beloved From Gents’ Pens author D. A. Grady’s life changed forever, when his Chevy pickup connected with a metal guard rail on highway U.S. 290, between Austin and Houston. When EMTs arrived on the scene and placed him into their Medevac helicopter, his left leg from below the knee remained behind in his truck, still in his boot.
Now faced with such issues as dealing with a prosthesis, relearning how to walk, handling phantom pain and even something as simple as taking a shower, he brought to the situation the same courage, determination and ingenuity that had held him in good stead through a long life.
Soon approached by the hospital’s trauma team and asked to share his experiences with others, he has counseled amputees ranging from Wounded Warriors to those who chanced to stand behind him in the checkout lane at his local Walmart and, in some cases, fellow amputees he met on the street.
Now he has put his experiences, solutions, and suggestions into words that can be passed on to others who can benefit from his experiences, in a uniquely conversational style that allows this fact-filled offering to seem as if it’s a conversation among friends.
If you’re an amputee yourself, a caregiver of an amputee or a friend of one, the information contained in this book will be helpful to you as you chart your new course through the growing world of amputeeism.
Happy Non-Fiction Reading!
