How A Teenage Boy In A Wheelchair Saved The World…
By: Joseph Simonds on March 6, 2020
After two years of writing, editing, proofing, re-writes, and then more editing, the long-awaited book, The Chair, is finally live on Amazon Prime today!
Here’s the quick backstory:
Luke and I have a younger brother named Daniel. He was born with severe cerebral palsy.
He’s never walked or talked a day in his life.
He spends most waking hours confined to a wheelchair and needs assistance for pretty much everything in his life (from getting out of bed, getting dressed, eating, etc).
Yet he wakes up every morning with a big smile on his face… grateful to be alive.
Dan The Man (as we affectionally call him) has been an inspiration to countless people.
He even magnetically attracts celebrities into his life (probably because he is so optimistic even when he has every right to be mad at the world).
He’s a really special dude.
So back in April 2017, I published a book called, Fishing For Happiness.
Shortly after it was published, Daniel planted an idea in my head…
To write a fictional book about HIM.
A book where Daniel, a young man who is often overlooked due to his “disability,” ends up having to face his biggest fears in order to save the world.
I called the book, The Chair.
It’s a book powerful enough to change how we look at others and ourselves… a book that will inspire… a book with meaning and purpose… a book the entire family can enjoy.
I promise the story will have you dying to keep reading… some of the happenings are eerily familiar to what we are seeing all around us today…
I hope you will pick up a copy right now (especially if you have any teenagers in your life).
The best news is that the profits from the book are going towards investing in the property we have picked out for our first “Salt Strong Fishing Theme Park.”
So when you purchase a copy today, know that you are playing a big role in getting more families, kids, vets, and the disabled outside fishing.
P.S. – It would mean so much to Daniel and our entire family if you picked up a copy or two for yourself and your kids/grandkids. We know this will have a massive impact on anyone who reads it.
P.P.S. – If you know any teachers or friends who work with the disabled, please TAG them or SHARE this with them. You Rock!
