Would you like J P to visit your school?

Deciding to write a book has changed my life! It’s opened a whole new world to me: discovering new business industries, developing new skills, and making new friends (world-wide!)

I’d love to share my experiences, and provide a realistic plan to your students about how to peruse their own dreams of starting or furthering a writing career.

Please contact me by email at j.galuska@yahoo.com for more details!

Gearing up for Book Signings

J P Galuska has been all over the news lately,  getting geared up for her book signing at the U-Turn Coffee House in Rochester, MN. Please remember, J P donates $1 for every book sold at her signings to area youth organizations.

Recently featured by Megan Kennedy in the Rochester Post-Bulletin, she can be seen this coming weekend, Feb, 11, 2012, on KTTC television with Tom Overlie.  If you ask her how it went, she’ll tell you that she is a better writer than public speaker. J P thought it was going pretty well until she realized they we’re actually filming yet. Then panic struck.

What did I say? That sounded pretty good. Oh crap! I don’t remember. (Heat flashed under her sweater)

At least I didn’t faint.

Reviewed by Linda Tonis, she goes on to say that the book is wonderfully written and you just can’t help loving the characters. While she admits she is not a typical YA reader, she would recommend the book to anyone young or old.  

Thanks, Linda!
