Success is Waiting by Buzz Durkin, available now!

51KDM0kNcFL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_I had the pleasure of editing Mr. Buzz Durkin’s debut book Success is Waiting, which details his experience and advice founding and successfully running Buzz Durkin’s Uechi Karate School. This was hands-down one of my favorite jobs– Mr. Durkin is such a kind, intelligent, and driven person and those qualities come through in his writing. So if you are a martial artist and you’re considering opening your own studio, I really think you should let Mr. Durkin be your guide. He has decades of martial arts practice and exprience and is highly respected in the martial arts community for good reason. People from all over the country seek him out for advice on how to build a strong and successful dojo and foster a community of learning, and that’s why he’s written this book which is now available on Amazon, already with sparkling reviews. Congrats, Mr. Durkin and William Leith who worked so hard on making this book great. It was wonderful working alongside you both.


I just got CJ Hauser’s book, The From-Aways, and I already love it!

It’s my badass, literary summer beach-read and it’s so good! The first line: “I have two lobsters in my bathtub and I’m not sure I can kill them.” And it just gets better. To celebrate, I’m wearing mermaid green sparkly Stila eye-shadow and my floppy sun hat from the CWW Yoga & Writing Retreat’s trip to the Clignancourt Flea Market in Paris (which makes me think of ‘Klingon Court,’ a court for Klingons, every time). Y’all gotta read this book. Click on the pic to purchase via Amazon

Here’s this summer’s retreat link– apply by June 15th!
