Hello my friends,

Just a quick note to let you know I've extended the submission deadline for submission for my book to
January 8th.  As many of you know, I recently finished writing my third book, "Broken Beautiful Me."  In it, I talk about how we can be both broken and beautiful all at the same time. Happy and sad can co-exist, and when we allow ourselves to learn from pain and loss, we evolve into more compassionate human beings.  I could think of no better way to finish this book than to hear from some of the amazing people who are part of the JOLT family.

A number of people reached out to me saying they wanted/needed more time.  As a writer, I totally get it! So, I've extended the deadline until after the holidays to give everyone an opportunity to participate.

To recap, here's what I'm asking for:
  • I am looking for 10-12 individual contributions for the book.
  • Submissions should be between 1000-1200 words.  Longer submissions will not be considered.
  • The title of the book is Broken Beautiful Me.  In it, I talk about how life can sometimes shatter us, but with an open heart and eyes that are able to see the good that remains, we can put ourselves back together again. I want you to tell your story of being broken and beautiful, and how gratitude ( or being a JOLT'er) helped you move forward after hardship.
  • You can't tell your entire life story in 1200 words. Pick one specific event.  I like to call those events "pivot points."  Choose a moment where life challenged you, and you decided to pivot, changing the direction of your life.
  • Your submission should be sent directly to me, kelly@kellybuckley.com.  
  • The deadline for submissions is January 8th, 2016.  
  • Once all entries have been reviewed, we will announce the selections late January.
  • We will also select some runner-up submissions that will be published on my blog at www.kellybuckley.com 
  • To learn more, you can watch here.

So many of you have inspired me with your courage, and determination to rise after falling.  I believe others could benefit from your wisdom too.  I hope you join us!

Happy Writing!
