Congratulations to Randy Step for writing and publishing his book, Get Your Butt Out the Door: A 365-Day Motivational Runner's Companion! This book will do just that--make your daily run happen, whether you're an Olympic athlete or just trying to break a sweat.
For each day of the year you'll find a paragraph of motivation, inspiration and education to get out the door. Randy practices what he preaches and is an admitted obsessed runner who has run more than 70 marathons, including several at Boston. He founded a 9-Store Running Fit group, and produced 27 running events in 2019 with RF Events. He lives near Ann Arbor, Michigan with his wife Kathy.
Our 4th book in the "Tell Your Story" series is My Life on the Autism Spectrum, by Tracey Cohen. Tracey has written two other books with us, Six-Word Lessons on Female Asperger Syndrome and Six-Word Lessons on the Sport of Running.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Tracey on this book that tells her inspiring life story of a difficult childhood of misunderstandings and not being properly diagnosed until age 39. The book is brave and honest, and a fascinating read that will help anyone gain a much better understanding of the autism spectrum, especially in girls and women.
We hope you have managed well during the pandemic and are staying healthy and safe. We are thankful to have been minimally impacted in our business and personal lives and wish you the best in health as we navigate through this season--however long it lasts!
We are here to help with any writing, editing or publishing questions or services you need.
