So much to be thankful for this November!
November is here, and I've got so much to be grateful for! I hope that you do, too! I firmly believe that we ALL do, if we look closely enough. For me, it was wonderful to start my month off with a Bahamas cruise with my husband. It's also been great seeing my tiny rescue pup slowly adapting to our home, watching my books accrue positive reviews, getting more involved with my church, revamping my Glitzburgh brand, getting ready for the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, enjoying learning more about essential oils, starting on another novel during NaNoWriMo, brainstorming ideas for a podcast, preparing for a partnership with Smartte, rooting on the Steelers, reflecting on Pittsburgh Fashion Week, and starting to think about the holidays while still enjoying some gorgeous fall weather (for now.)
Professionally, things are going pretty well, which is an awesome, humbling, amazing experience -- and I am keeping faith that it will only go up from here!
- First, there's my upcoming Book Signing at Barnes & Noble in Settler's Ridge, Robinson. It will be held on November 13th, from 6-9pm. I, along with a few other local authors, will be selling and signing books. To Exist and Sick Idiot will both be available.
- Also, I am eligible as a "write-in" vote for the Goodreads Choice Awards. Please check out the link below and vote for Sick Idiot in the categories of "Memoir & Autobiography" and/or "Debut Goodreads Author." If you need assistance with voting, please email me and let me know. PLEASE VOTE! (You'll be pleased to know that Sick Idiot is still an Amazon best-seller, and both it and To Exist are rated 5/5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads! Please consider ordering copies for yourself or as holiday gifts! Both are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble, or directly through me at abshuck.com.)
- In other news, it was such an honor to be inducted into the Pittsburgh Fashion Hall of Fame. You can view my acceptance speech, here. I'm also still writing for Healthline and ArthritisAshley.com, as well as doing PR and social media work with clients like Paws N Claws Eyewear, Paragon Homes, the Lions Club, and more, and am still involved with one of my "pet" causes, WearWoof. (pun intended.) I'm also a host for the November #ChronicallyGrateful Challenge on Instagram! (Check it out!)
And, last but not least, the holidays are upon us, and doTerra products like essential oils, aromatherapy diffusers, lotions, spa and beauty products, skincare products, and more, make great gifts! Plus, our products such as OnGuard are great for building the immune system in the cooler winter months. Check out doTerra essential oils, here.
Thank you, as always, for your support. I hope that you have a wonderful November ... and remember: stay grateful!
