11265205_825145794246007_1163593772577560405_nA few weeks ago I was invited to participate in a one-day Facebook event as an "inspirational author."

I do not consider myself an inspirational author. I've been called that a couple times and cringed. My friend, Kathy Pooler, is one of the women included in this event. She really IS inspirational. Someone recently called me "indomitable", but inspirational?

I was in a mood, I guess, and decided to accept the opportunity/challenge. The Facebook event is scheduled for July 2 and will feature fifteen women from around the world, converging on Facebook in three-hour shifts from 5 am to 11 pm PDT. I'm in the 2-5pm PDT shift.

Who else is joining me? "Inspirational" turns out to be an understatement. They are a wildly diverse, passionate and talented group of writers. They are listed by their shift at the Inspirational Authors Facebook event.

I'm one of a group of women who write eloquently about serving in the Peace Corps in Kazakhstan, how to fix our schools, surviving abusive marriages, facing down cancer and finding a purpose to life after the death of a child. Everyone everywhere has challenges and these women's stories will inspire you to not only deal with yours, but thrive. Here is more information on the lineup.

Now, in an attempt to inspire you to join us, we are holding pre-event and day-of-event giveaways. You'll see those giveaways on the Facebook page as you scroll down. Be sure to enter each giveaway separately.

No one expects you to spend your entire day on Facebook, but even if you can only join us for an hour, click the "going" button on the right-hand side of the page.

I hope you'll join us on July 2. I can't wait to hear more from writers who amaze me: fearless women you will be amazed by, too.
