Lee Rayabout this book: My new book, "Bushels and Barrels" is an attempt to convince the reader to retrain themselves to look for positive in every aspect of life. We all live a rollercoaster of experiences every day. In order to relate to the reader, and the topics discussed, I also open my life up and share my experiences, from the good all the way to the very bad.
I wrote this book as a way to relate my life to others out there going through similiar situations and to show you absolutely can be happy in life after enduring significant negative events. The primary readers are anyone from young adult to seniors who want to find their blessings and overcome their challenges and are willing to take the time to find out how.
The title of the book was in honor of my wedding proposal to my wife when I discussed life's journey and how I wanted to take that very path with her by my side. The binding of the book is green, our wedding colors. I took the photo which became the focus of the front cover in our back yard. The picket fence and apples are as American as you can get and I wanted to show you can find your happiness anywhere, I found my symbolic one right in my own yard!
Writing the book took about 5 months of dedicated writing and then I spent another several weeks editing prior to submission to my publisher, Bookstand Publishing. The hardest part of writing the book was the intensely personal information I was putting into the book and opening my life up to others in a way I had never done before. That was scary!
If I had just one thing to say to my readers is the book highlights some common challenges and blessings, I encourage you to read the book and get a feel for the dedication needed to alter your perspective and work to become more positive, even in the shadows of so much negative in this world. Thank you!
