I’m delighted to say that Pooja Gudka from LIFESEWHINE is first up on my Book Tour today and I’m going to turn it over to her in just a bit but first I want to say Happy Fun Fri-Yay! You know how long winded I can get on Fri-Yayyyy so if you want to skip the below and just go to her review of my book you can go here and read it. But first, at least scroll down so I can introduce you to the blogging icon herself .
Thank you for being so supportive of my upcoming book Re-Create and Celebrate: 7 Steps to Turn Your Dreams Into Reality. It’s truly beyond my wildest dreams that I finally have my book baby coming out into the world next Saturday after all of these years of dreaming about it!
Up until yesterday I was having trepidation about being so open and vulnerable. I was feeling very exposed and worrying about spilling my insides out in public and I even had the thought that I should scrap the book all together. Shhhh don’t tell Ingrid. After all of the work she has done, I just couldn’t do that to her. I couldn’t do it to me either because if I could help just one person on their journey and share the secrets of living their own authentic lives, my mission would be accomplished.
Then I received the most incredible praises of endorsement on my book yesterday from so many well respected friends and professionals. Suddenly, all the fear and trepidation was gone and I knew without a doubt, this was the book I was born to write.
If you know Pooja from LIFESFINEWHINE then no introduction is needed. To know her is to love her. When I first started blogging Pooja was always so kind and helpful when I needed a question answered about any little thing when it came to blogging. I would email her and she would happily get right back to me. I’m probably the reason she started to take this on as a job and get paid for it since I bugged her more than a few times. 😅. She does social media & blog management, website creation etc. She is a wonderful example of living her life dreams and getting paid doing what she loves to do as a blogger, social media & blog management website creation and more.
With nearing 26,000 followers her blog speaks for itself. She talks about everything under the sun with many blogging tips, making your blog is SEO friendly, makeup, her own personal trial and tribulations with mental health, sharing guest posts of interesting new bloggers, a six word story, poetry, food etc. She has a new YouTube channel and her latest business, Clickatripafrica with her sister, setting you up on the best safaris in Africa. She’s from Kenya and knows the ins and outs on going to the best places with the best prices. What doesn’t this girl do?! Now you see what I’m talking about.
Thank you so much Pooja for your incredible endorsement of my book. I am so blessed! Our Launch Party and Release Date is next Saturday May 20th at 8:00 a.m. pst and we would love to have you join us. We will update you next week.

Cindy, Cindy 💕 “I was feeling very exposed and worrying about spilling my insides out in public and I even had the thought that I should scrap the book all together. Shhhh don’t tell Ingrid. After all of the work she has done, I just couldn’t do that to her.” So you ARE human. I was starting to doubt this. My friend, you’re in front of the camera and clients all the time and you get like this?! I get you— I will sit with you and you don’t even have to talk to me.
And I continued reading…
Wowser! What a line up m’lady! I don’t know how one manages all that. You’re giving me the heebie-jeebies. All this so foreign to me. You are so accomplished already. I bow deep to you— it’s not bedtime but I think I will go to bed now. Wake me up when September comes.
Pooja — what a gem that young lady. Wow. To have her on your side makes me want to put my forehead on the floor and not get up. You have an amazing team. I kinda feel jealous of you. I think I’ll cry now.
In all seriousness, I’m So happy for you. I bless you in everything. Stay the course. You’ll disappoint me if you don’t. I wish you miracles. Xo 😚
I’m more than happy to support Cindy and she has supported me so much too. Thank you for your kind words 😊
Thanks for your sweetness too. I bless you. Xoxo 📖 ✍🏻 👏
Oh Selma, thank you so much. Like you said, we are human. We have to honor all of our edges. You are going to be awesome and your writing speaks for yourself. Things will go well for you.. you’re in good hands! I’m laughing and smiling and appreciating your heartfelt words. “I bow deep to you— it’s not bedtime but I think I will go to bed now. Wake me up when September comes.”
Pooja is amazing and I loved her review. It’s your turn next and you will do great.. It’s a lot.. Happy Mother’s Day to you!
I love the first review of your great book, Cindy! It’s simply awesome and raises further interest in your book. A beautiful review of a beautiful book! And you deserve it! Let all the stops of your book tour be full of thrills and joy. Enjoy your weekend, Cindy 🎉 Congratulations again and all the best wishes! Eagerly waiting for the book launch 👍💐🌟✨💖
I so agree KK. Pooja did an amazing review and I’m so grateful to her! Oh thank you so very much. There are a lot of them. You might get tired of them after awhile but It’s so very kind of everyone to do. Thanks you so very much for your ongoing support! 💞
I won’t get tired, I assure you. Always welcome 😊💖💐
One blog tour done. Many to go! Cindy will have a line of followers in coming days
You got it girlfriend. You’ll be sick of them soon.. lol. xo 💗
Exciting! I can’t wait to read your book. Enjoy your weekend, Cindy!🥰💕
