What’s your superpower? Join the Beyond Powerful book launch team 🎉

If you somehow missed it, on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 my first book Beyond Powerful: Your Chronic Illness is Not Your Kryptonite, will be available in print in all major bookstores in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. I’m still not used to writing that sentence.

As part of the launch, I am recruiting YOU (if you want to be recruited, that is) to join my launch team by sharing your superpower with the world.

What you get:

  • a snazzy social media image
  • bragging rights that you were on a book launch team because how cool #streetcred
  • super simple instructions from me on what to share and how to share it to help on launch day. I’m going to send you your picture, write you a post (which you’re free to edit) and tell you when and where to post it. You can effectively turn your brain off, I got you.

What’s really amazing to me about the images that have already been created for those who have jumped in to the launch team is the proof that we are all so damn powerful. Look at what we each carry. Look at how we each crush it. It’s truly amazing.

It reminds me that we’re all dealing with something. That we’re all so strong. And that not one of us is alone in this.

If YOU would like to be on the launch team for Beyond Powerful, here’s what to do:

  1. email lala@lalajackson.com
  2. send a photo of your gorgeous self (pictures with “white space”, i.e. pictures where your face doesn’t take up the whole frame, are best)
  3. include your first name, what you live with (can be anything from a chronic illness to stress to whatever it is you carry), and your superpower. I promise you have one. ❤

I’ll be sending you instructions on when and where to post, but your image will also be included on BeyondPowerfulBook.com and possibly on one of my social media channels. I appreciate you!

Published author, day 3

Lala Angela 2I’ve spent the last three days at my publisher’s home, nicknamed The Author Castle, outside of Washington, D.C. On Thursday, my book launched. Within the first 24 hours, my book ended up in the top 1,000 in the Amazon Kindle store and hit #1 in pain management in the US (#2 in Australia in the same category), #1 in disorders and diseases in Japan, #1 in chronic pain in Canada, and #1 in pain therapy in Germany. It also seems to be holding pretty strong in the high ranks for Social Sciences in both Japan and the UK. So yes, I am officially an International Best Selling Author.

My book is here!

My first book Beyond Powerful published this morning (go get it! It’s free right now, but not for long!). I wanted to share a few things with you on this big day!

1) I didn’t curse in my book (publisher’s rules) but I do curse in real life. You’ve been warned.

2) I’m humbled that I got to write something so personal and that now I get to share it with you all. This book, at its core, is about having an innate need to do the things we want to do while living with chronic illness and figuring out exactly how, but I’ve gotten such amazing feedback from my advance reader crew that everyone found value in it, and that means so much to me. Continue reading “My book is here!”

Have no idea what I’m talking about when I say ‘spoonie’?

As I develop content for my book, publishing in September 2016, you’re going to keep hearing me refer to this thing called a “spoonie.” Nope, not a trekkie. Not some weird reference to cuddling. It’s a way people with chronic disease describe ourselves, and here’s why. Continue reading “Have no idea what I’m talking about when I say ‘spoonie’?”
