One Year Anniversary of the Publication of My Book “Pressing My Luck”

June 20th, 2014

On June 20, 2013 my book “Pressing My Luck” was published. It is a memoir of my pre and post lottery life. Total sales – 1160 copies. And it has been a very busy year. I spent as many years writing the book as I did in medical school. What I didn’t know was that the promotion of the book is as hard as the writing. I was interviewed on the Katie Couric Show, JLTV and the Elaine Viets’ Radio Show. I gave talks at book clubs, Hadassah groups, libraries and synagogues. I posted on Facebook, blogged on my website, youtubed at, tweeted on Twitter, and linked up on LinkedIn. I was written up in the Miami Herald, the Brandeis Magazine and the Drexel University Medical School Alumni Bulletin. I also wrote a piece for the Brandeis Alumni Magazine. In addition, last November I had a booth at the Miami International Book Fair. There’s more but that’s enough for now. I thank everyone for your support. Pressing My Luck Shirley Press
