Frankie the Walk 'n Roll Dog Virtual Book Tour

Barbara Techel was on vacation when she got some heartbreaking news. Her beloved dachshund, Frankie, had been injured in a freak accident. If Frankie lived, she might be paralyzed. Would Frankie survive? Could Barbara care for a severely disabled dog?

Frankie recovered and thrived, and she kept rolling with a custom-fit wheelchair. Her story is told in a unique picture book for children, Frankie the Walk 'n Roll Dog. This book was awarded the 2008 National Best Book Award (children’s picture book soft cover) by USA Book News, the Merial Human-Animal Bond Award by Dog Writer’s Association of America, and the Editor’s Choice Award by Allbooks Review. It was also a finalist in the 2008 Indie Excellence Awards. Frankie herself was inducted into the 2009 Wisconsin Pet Hall of Fame.

Barbara has written: "I absolutely believe animals were put on this earth to awaken us and teach us what life is truly about ... When Frankie ruptured a disk in her back in 2006 ...I struggled ... letting sorrow, at first, take over. As Frankie began to heal, I realized she was still the same Frankie even though she was now paralyzed. She did not let her physical handicap get in the way of being the same sweet dog she was before her accident. Realizing the opportunity to share this lesson with others, I wrote Frankie’s life story. It is told by Frankie herself, through me, her loving human mom."

Children love this book, and it resonates with dog lovers, families of kids with disabilities, and book lovers of all ages.

Please join us in June for Barbara and Frankie's virtual book tour! Throughout the month of June, authors, bloggers, parents, and animal experts will share their book reviews, interviews with Barbara, and other contributions.

There will be a SPECIAL OFFER FOR VISITORS TO THE VIRTUAL BLOG TOUR. Each guest who comments on a post in Barbara and Frankie's tour will be entered in a drawing for some fun, unique gifts that will especially appeal to Frankie fans and other dog lovers.

Molly Gordon's Podcast Interview with Barbara Weaver Smith

I wanted to take the chance to share this podcast with you - in case you missed it a couple of days ago.

Interview with a Whale Hunting Woman

Last week I reviewed Barbara Weaver Smith's book, Whale Hunting Women. Shortly afterward, I had a delightful conversation with her about how women (including self employed solo-preneurs) are uniquely qualified to seek and get business from much larger organizations.

You, lucky you, can listen in on the conversation or download the interview here (http://www.shaboominc.com/blog/downloads/whale-hunters.mp3). And for your edification, I asked Maggie to write up some of the highlights.

Maggie wrote:

  • There are lots of additional resources (free) at Barbara's Web site, thewhalehunters.com
  • Why women are uniquely qualified to seek and get business from organizations that are up to ten times the size of their own business.
  • How to use the book to seek and get significant business (instead of just thinking about how cool it would be).
  • The most important thing to remember (that we usually forget) when it comes to dealing with fear that we can't hold our own with the "big kids."
  • The three core principles of Whale Hunting that women happen to rock at.
  • What the self employed woman might not realize about bureaucracy in her own business (and why it matters)
  • Why whales are scared. (!)
  • What to say when you price work by the project, not the hour.
  • The importance of collaboration.

GirlForce by Nikki Goldstein Virtual Book Tour


This summer we will be sharing information about a great new book for teenage girls - called GirlForce: A Way of Life For Young Women by Nikki Goldstein. Are you a teenage girl or is there a special teen girl in your life? I think most of us remember all the difficult things about being a teen girl.

Would you have enjoyed a book that helped you understand why you were so different from other girls and how to deal with those differences? I would have enjoyed that. I was 6'1 before I turned 13 and had braces throughout my teen years - those were just the most obvious things I dealt with in my teens. What did you deal with while you were a teen?


About GirlForce: A Way of Life For Young Women

Author Nikki Goldstein has worked as a beauty editor for over ten years, and wanted to develop a way to counter the negative images and messages she often found in the media. Nikki discovered Ayurveda (pronounced ‘eye-ur-veed-dah”)after a long illness, and during her recovery a friend suggested looking yoga and meditation. At first a skeptic, Nikki found that she was becoming and feeling stronger and her stress levels were down. Most of all, she was learning about her body and what it needed to feel great. Nikki wants to spread the word about the power of being in tune with your inner self, and to inspire girls to celebrate themselves just the way they are. Empower your body, mind and sprit with GirlForce, and the world is yours for the taking.

Based on the ancient Indian system known as Ayurveda (pronounced "eye-ur-vee-dah"), everyone has a unique body type made up of the elements Air, Fire and Earth which give you your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual characteristics. Each body type has different needs and desires in order to feel balanced. This is not a diet or weight loss book, but a way of feeling great about yourself, for who you are. GirlForce offers practical, wise and balanced tools to improve health, well-being, body image and relationships.

For this tour - we are offering these opportunities:

1 - Written author interviews

2 - Guest posts from the author about topics that relate to the book

3 - Copies of the book for review

4 - Some excerpts from the book

5 - If you have a creative idea - contact me to discuss options

6 - We have a great interactive website to feature during the tour

Table of Contents for GirlForce

Chapter One - Who Are You?

Chapter Two - Create Your Own GirlForce Body Type Balancing Plan

Chapter Three - Eat Right For Your Body Type

Chapter Four - DIY Body Blast

Chapter Five - Celebrate Your Unique Beauty

Chapter Six - The Low Down on Stress

Chapter Seven - Get in Touch With Your Inner Self

Chapter Eight - Talking About Relationships

Chapter Nine - Get it Together

Chapter Ten - Your GirlForce Questions Answered


About Nikki Goldstein

Nikki Goldstein has worked as a beauty editor and writer for Marie Claire, Vogue, Elle, InStyle and Cosmopolitan. Motivated by her own experiences, she decided to share the positive impact of Ayuveda - and in doing so help millions of girls across the world to feel fantastic about themselves. Nikki regularly blogs on her two websites - www.mygirlforce.com and www.gettoknowyourdaughter.com which give further information about the power of GirlForce, as well as fun quizzes, activities and forums.
