Dr. Jennifer Harrison – Has recently released her new book.  She has 4 pieces of very exciting news to share with you!

As some of you know, I’ve been working on writing a book for several years and it was taking me forever to complete. However, in December I had an epiphany and decided instead to compile some of the articles that I’d already written for my web site into a book.  Well, as of June 17th, 2015, my book is officially on Amazon worldwide!  It’s called, Stressed Self to Best Self™: A Body Mind Spirit Guide to Creating a Happier and Healthier You Volume 1.  It’s currently available as an eBook. However, I will be publishing it with a couple of other companies so that the eBook will be available on Kobo, iBooks, Nook and other online eBook stores.  Later in the summer there will also be a paperback print on demand version available through Chapters online and other online stores around the world. In the meantime, the eBook is available for only $2.99. Naturally, I talk about athletic therapy in the book, especially in the exercise section! Plus, there is a thank you to all members of the CATA in the acknowledgments at the start of the book. If you feel so inclined to buy the eBook (and please don’t feel obligated) and you like it, please tell your patients, friends, families, co-workers and anyone else you think might enjoy the book! Also, if you could, please leave a review (preferably a positive one!) on or Kobo if you want to wait for that eBook version. Thanks!

My second piece of exciting news is that back in February a great book opportunity came my way.  I got an email from Jack Canfield (NY Times Best Selling author and Chicken Soup for the Soul creator) saying that he had partnered with a publicity/publishing company to create an opportunity for people to write a book with him.  So, I, and 55 other people from around the world, took them up on their offer!  I wrote a chapter that will be featured in his upcoming book The Soul of Success Volume 1: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth and Success. My chapter is called Overcoming Overwhelm. I talk about athletic therapy, among other things, in the chapter plus each author’s bio page will be placed at the end of their chapter. The Soul of Success will be coming out in late August/early September.  It’s guaranteed to be an international best seller so this is very exciting. (Before you ask, all the authors are donating their royalties to charity.) : ) 

My third piece of good news is that in early June I received an Editor’s Choice Award for my chapter in the Soul of Success!  For each compilation book the publishing company does, the editor chooses the best few chapters from the book and the authors receive this award. I didn’t even know that they did this so I was pretty blown away when I received the certificate and letter in the mail a few weeks ago.

My fourth piece of exciting news is that I was invited to be part of a 20 person group, each of whom will be interviewed by Jack Canfield in Hollywood in September at an event called The Best Seller Summit.  Segments of each interview will become part of a show that will appear on regional A&E and Bravo channels in the US later on this year.

I can’t believe all that has happened since last December! It’s a very exciting time and I’m really happy and grateful to be able to share my good news with all of you.
