The thing is Im also honest to a fault (AKA Ive lost my filter). If I didn’t love her book—I’d share that, too. The fact I adore *her* and am smitten with her knowledge/ability to convey said knowledge in writing makes this a win-win.
Once upon a time there was a personal trainer writer woman who wrote a book.
When said book was completed she had the opportunity to appear in the photographic images contained within its pages and flew to Oakland for her photo-shoot.
Her friend, a misfit Oakland blogger herself, was overjoyed & dragged the trainer-writer-woman out with her family on a foodie adventure
NOT and invited her to sleepover YAY.
The day of the photo-shoot our soon-to-be famous writer woman invited her blogger friend to peek into the event.
resisted ripping off her grownup clothes and joining in watched with excitement and *loved* the process of feeling as though she saw her friend’s book spring to life via shots like these.
Even more than before she couldn’t wait to read her friend’s book and apply its knowledge to her bod.
(The years had been kind to our blogging misfit, but she *still* was 44.)
She counted down the days until the book was released & her friend’s body wisdom would finally hit the shelf under the title Ultimate Booty Workouts.
With a cover which looked like this:
Our blogging misfit friend was sad.
“Why is my friend’s name in such small print? And why is the woman on the cover…not how I’d envisioned her?” She wondered.
Still, she excitedly cracked the binding and dove inside.
And *there* her friend SHONE THROUGH.
- The information on anatomy, nutrition, and exercise form? ROCK STAR QUALITY.
- The photos and exercise demo images? PHENOMENAL.
- The definitions of key resistance training terms and tips for “how to use this book?” Clear, concise and NOT condescending.
And our misfit blogger smiled.
And bought the book for more than a few of her woman-friends.
And reminded herself of a lesson she’d learned long ago and, apparently, was still re-learning:
Never judge a book by its “build a sexy backside” cover–you might just be blown away by what is contained within.
