Calling all Authors! Connie Stapleton wants to help us write a book!
Have you ever thought about writing a book? “We all have a 500 page book in us” says successful author of
Eat it Up Connie Stapleton, Ph.D., who is a licensed psychologist and owner of Mind Body Health Services in Augusta, GA (www.mindbodyhealthservices.com). Connie is certified in addictions counseling and works closely with local bariatric surgeons, conducting pre-surgical interviews for potential surgical weight loss patients. She follows up with extensive therapy after weight loss surgery.
After viewing the WLSFA Documentary Surviving to Thriving Connie offered to write a book and donate the profits back the the WLSFA! Connie’s idea is to gather stories from our WLS community and bring the stories together to form a book, similar to Chicken Soup for the Soul.
How you can contribute:
1) Please send us your 5 or 6 page typed story in the form of a word document.
Send us your story about what lead to you becoming morbidly obese and what was your breaking point?
2) At the bottom of your story please include the follwing information:
Your Full Name and Age
Your Phone Number
Your Email Address
If you want to be Annonymous send us your “Pen Name” Example: Sleepless in Seattle
3) Email your story to Book@wlsfa.org
NEW! We now have a form to submit your story!

4) After we receive your story, we will contact you if your story is selected for the book and we will send a release form for you to authorize the WLSFA and Connie Stapleton to publish the story and give us the right to use the story at no charge. All profits from the sale of the book are to be donated to the WLSFA as a fundraiser.
