Book Launch and Book sales

The ball is rolling on my marketing and publicity associated with my new book "Dream it. See it. Be it. ~ Discovering your potential at the end of your comfort zone."


I had a great time selling books at the Sunset Elementary Saturday Market a couple of weeks before the launch and have had many orders on Amazon at www.amazon.com/dp/1943164290 and via my website www.heatherhowells.com





Official book launch at the Honolulu Club on Oahu, Hawaii was on 24 October 2015. This great newspaper interview in "The Voice" section of Midweek Hawaii preceded the party.






 My MC from Maui, Patrick Snow flew over for the event. He has been my publishing coach and guided me along the process of ending up with a product that I feel very proud of.


Hawaiian musician, Wayne Tejada started the evening off with his magnificent voice and guitar playing. Followed by an Argentine Tango demo given my myself and instructor George Garcia.



I had the opportunity to "Talk Story" and discuss my journey of self discovery through the literal foot journey described in the book, staring 10 years ago with my dream of just becoming a little fitter which led to participating in marathons, ultra marathons, an extreme desert race and ultimately hiking solo across the American wilderness for 2300 miles.





Patrick interviewed me after my speech and I answered questions from the audience.




A huge thank you to everyone who attended the event. Here are a few pics.









Mahalo to the Honolulu Club for providing such an awesome venue.





Jonathan Wong from Honolulu Heartbeat interviewed me after the event.

Wonderful door prizes donated by sponsors were then given out to the audience.
A huge thank you to my sponsors who included:
Dr Catherine Kurosu, a medical doctor and OBGYN who has an holistic Acupuncture Practice, very generously donated three prizes each consisting of three treatments.
Shaka Kayaks, an eco-conscious kayaking operation on the North Shore of Oahu, donated 2two kayak tours as prizes.
LaniLove Gluten Free Bakery in Kahuku on the North Shore of Oahu donated two delicious gluten free treats.
Nalu Kinetic Spa at the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's north Shore donated a complimentary one hour massage or facial.
Balimoon Furnishings in Waialua offered a beautiful turtle woodcarving as a prize.
