Rock the Pink, The Book

The question I get more than any: what's it like? From the training to the actual walk, people who are thinking about walking in a multi-day charity even want an idea of what they might be getting into. After being asked for the umpth time, I started asking in return, if there was a book, what would you want to know? What could I tell you that would give you the answers you want, but without telling you too much?

Rock the Pink became the format for the answers to the questions I was being asked; as a writer, this felt like the right way to go, and as a plus, it's another way to raise funds.

Yep, every dime I earn on this book will be donated toward a future walk; I have planned at least one breast cancer walk this year, but after that, anything the book earns will be donated toward others' fundraising effort. I know a lot of people walking for the SGK 3 Day, the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, for the National MS Society, Heart Disease, and Leukemia & Lymphoma.

Rock the Pink is available in print from most online booksellers, and currently is available for the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.

Hey, I'll beg if I have to.
And...thanks :)

A Wabbit Walking, my training blog   |   Thumper Thinks Out Loud, regular blog

From the back cover:

It's simple; you're considering participating in a multi-day charity walk event, but you have no idea what you're up against. "Rock the Pink" is author and blogger K.A. Thompson's what-it's-like account of training for and participating in a 3 day 60 mile breast cancer walk. Part memoir, part guide book, Rock the Pink will outline the basics of what it's like to train-battling blisters, chronic pain, and heat-and what a new walker can expect on the event. Profits from the sale of this book will be used to raise funds for future walks.
