3 Reasons to Vote for The FabYOUList to Win a D.I.V.A. Award!

If you follow this blog you know that my very first book The FabYOUList: List It, Live It, Love Your Life came out in September 2013. It's a self-help memoir that follows me along on a post-mid-life-freak-out journey to conquer 40 life goals before my big four-oh. #40 was "write a book"--and The FabYOUList is that book. Now it's been nominated for a D.I.V.A. Award in the "inspiration" category! The voting closes January 30th and it would be such an honor for my book to win this. Here are three great reasons to vote today (and again and again because I'm pretty sure you can vote more than once!).
  1. Anyone who's put themselves on the back burner will relate to this book (I'm talking to you MOMS!). All my ups and downs (and trips to the ER) are in there--my adventures, misadventures, and what I learned a long the way. Readers will chuckle along (my trauma is amusing to others!), and get tips for how they can rediscover what makes their own passions, make a list like I did, and get out of their way so they can make their dream life turn into a real life--which they then can start living right away.
  2. The FabYOUList is funny, and funny books can be very inspiring. But just like comedies at the Oscars, they rarely win the top prize. In otherwords...let's stick it to the man!
  3.  I haven't actually won anything since my trophy for "highest science grade" when I was 12 years old--and this award would be so much better because I have to believe it comes with a tiara. It's the D.I.V.A. could it not?
Check out the book here (there's a free excerpt!).

I believe you can vote more than once--so please vote often! I really, really (and I do mean really!) appreciate it.
