I’m excited to have sold over 12,000 copies of my Total Eclipse Guide series for the August 21, 2017, total eclipse!
 
I never thought a book series I wrote would sell this many copies. It started off as a small book for the Jackson area and it grew into a big series of thirteen titles.
 
The various state books I wrote are now in all states that are will enjoy the total eclipse.
 
For example, they are in the Idaho Falls Zoo, Oregon Capital Gift Store in Salem Oregon, the Wyoming Territorial Prison, Wort Hotel in Jackson Wyoming, Prairie Books in Hastings Nebraska, the Bookworm in Carbondale Illinois, the Boonville Visitor Center in Missouri, Carmichael’s Bookstore in Louisville Kentucky, Union Avenue Books in Knoxville Tennessee, Sunrise Books in High Point North Carolina, Barnes and Noble in Charleston, South Carolina, and countless other locations and bookstores.
 
Thank you to everyone who has made this book series a success—I couldn’t have done it without you.

Musical Inspiration

What inspired you today? What made you get up and do your best with what you have, not wishing for things you don’t?

Wishing isn’t doing. Doing is doing.

Hanz Zimmer

Be inspired by Hans Zimmer, one of the greatest composers of our time. In two notes, he created the sound for the Batman trilogy. Just two notes! It’s all about how they’re presented and they’re emphasized. That means everything.

Through this promo for his music master film class, I was inspired. Even though I have no musical skill, he made me feel like I could create something. I’m not going to delude myself by buying an instrument and trying to make something, though!

 

I love his quote:

“The interesting ideas come from some kid in a garage in the Bronx.”

Hans Zimmer’s promo video

Watch his Youtube trailer and be inspired.

“If you have a story, you can do whatever you want to do.”

What’s your story? What’s your skill? I’ll bet you have something lurking inside that’s just waiting to burst forth and shine. What’s stopping you from sharing it?

What do I do?

Instead of trying to compose music, I perform the music in my heart. I have a conversation with audiences, sharing my experience of risking everything to pursue a dream.

They see a guy who doesn’t look like someone who could drag a refrigerator across a continent. experience how a software engineer became the second only American to successfully ski to the South Pole against all odds. That’s what I do.

People learn my improbable story in Antarctic Tears. They see a guy who doesn’t look like someone who could drag a refrigerator across a continent standing in front of them. Audiences experience how a software engineer became the second only American to successfully ski to the South Pole against all odds. That’s what I do.

What Will You Do?

You were put on the Earth to do something, to share and use something special inside of you. Do you use it? Are you afraid of it? That’s okay, so many of us are afraid to fail. But really, what’s the worst that happens? You learn something that doesn’t work. That’s okay. Failure is a necessary path to success. Failure and failing doesn’t mean you’re a

That’s okay. Failure is a necessary path to success. Failure and failing doesn’t mean you are a failure. It only means you gained more knowledge than you have before. And the next time you’ll be better for it.
