I'll show you how

Books have saved me.

No kidding, I escaped into novels as a child. I learned how to interact with people from books as a college student and writing my own book as an adult has changed the trajectory of my career.

Now I want to Read it Forward. I will send 5 personalized copies of Captivate out to 5 readers. These readers are our Flagship Readers.

Step #1: Get Your Gift

Flagship Readers get their personalized copy of Captivate (with a few surprises thrown in). Once they have read it, they will write one piece of advice in the back of the book.

Step #2: Gift Your Gift

Now is the fun part! Flagship Readers get to pick someone in their life who they think could benefit from reading Captivate. They gift it to them.

Step #3: Repeat

Each reader will write advice in the back of the book and keep Reading It Forward to someone in their life.

Sweet Ending:

Once all the blank pages in the back are full, the book should be donated to a permanent home. The Final Reader gets to choose a person, a retirement home, a museum, a cruise ship, a school, etc. that should have the book with all of the advice.

I can’t wait to start this with many books; we will start with Captivate.

Want to be a Flagship Reader? Amazing!
