Delighted to welcome a new author to the bookshelf Peter Davidson with his books and today I am featuring his most recent that is enjoying great reviews. Making Your Mark | Leaving a Legacy | And then… A Grand Exit That’ll Have Their Tongues Waggin’

About the book

If you want your life to amount to more than just anonymously passing through this world unnoticed, this book is for you. It describes how you can make your mark on your family, friends, and society and how you can create a legacy that will benefit future generations.

When the time comes for you to leave this world, you can go out with class, style, and pizzazz, just like you lived your life, There are many options, possibilities, and decisions involved in planning a final farewell as we will see as we watch the Grand Exit of Timothy A.B. Smythe. Timothy’s Grand Exit will have people’s tongues waggin’ for a long time and it can serve as an inspiration for your final farewell, when the time comes.

Much of the information in the book is presented in true stories, scenarios, and examples that are upbeat, often humorous, and fun to read.

One of the early reviews for the book

This was a powerful and engaging read. The author did an amazing job of crafting this book in a way that felt both productive and enlightening all at once, while also capturing a tone and writing style that felt at ease and casual as if the book were just a normal conversation between two friends rather than a simple guide from the author to the reader. The themes of life and death were so strong in this book and did a great job of highlighting the message of legacy and what it means to make a mark on this world.

What stood out to meet was the author’s ability to bring a lightness to an otherwise upsetting subject like death. The attitude and confidence that the author has given readers to take the reins of death’s impending embrace and instead find a way of living life to the fullest were amazing to read. From leaving your name on a park or park bench and starting a charity in your name to writing a book or creating a product with your name embedded into the product’s title, the author lays out some great methods of leaving a mark on the world that makes people remember you long after you are gone. Yet it was the author’s ability to find positive ways of dealing with death, both in the time leading up to it and to the actual event itself, that gave a more inspirational tone to one’s demise than the heartbreak it so often brings.

    • Hi Sue, Thanks for your comment. MAKING YOUR MARK, LEAVING A LEGACY, AND THEN . . A GRAND EXIT THAT’LL HAVE THEIR TONGUES WAGGIN’ was a fun book to write, with a lot of “normal” ideas and a few crazy ones mixed in.. The most fun part was to put the information about a person’s Grand Exit from this world in the form of a fictional story.
      All the information is there, but is delivered in conversations between the characters in the story. MEMOIRS OF A RECOVERING TEACHER is a book that any current or former teacher would probably enjoy ecause they would recognize themselves in many of the scenes and stories. Please let me know if you have any questions about the books. Best wishes, Peter

      • No, author. But I’m reading “The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip” by Sara Brunsvold, which is fiction. They probably have similar themes. Maybe someone aging gratefully has her antenna out for such stories?

A GRAND EXIT THAT’LL HAVE THEIR TONGUES WAGGIN’ You mentioned my book, MEMOIRS OF A RECOVERING TEACHER – I think anyone who was ever, or is, a teacher will identify with a lot of the stories in the book – it might even give former students a little insight into what their teachers were really like, behind the scenes.

  1. What a fascinating book, Sally. We all desire to leave behind a mark of some kind, to let other generations know we existed. This sounds like a great read. Thank you for sharing and best wishes to Peter!

      • Hi Jan, Thanks for your nice comments. Reviews are starting to come in for the book and I’m pleased to say that readers have had kind things to say about the book. Most of the information in the book is presented in the form of short stories and scenarios, which makes the book easy to read. The part of the book dealing with making a “Grand Exit” from tis world is presented in the form of a fictional account of a daring, lovable character rather than being presented in a more traditional nonfiction style. If you have any questions or comments about any of my books, Jan, feel free to email me. Best wishes, Peter

      • Hi Pete, Throughout life, I have tried to take advantage of opportunities that presented themselves to me, which resulted in getting involved in some interesting and exciting ventures. Perhaps the most exciting venture was as co-owner of a professional recording studio – musicians can be a lot of fun to hang out with. But, through it all, whatever else I was doing in life, I continued to pursue my life’s passion, which is writing. If you have any comments or questions about any of my books, feel free to send me an email. Best wishes, Peter

      • Hi Denise, Thanks for connecting via Smorgasbord. I’m pleased that a couple of the books caught your eye. I love all of my books, of course, but one that I am especially fond of is PENNY. PENNY is the (fictional) story of the final true copper penny that was minted in the United States, on October 22, 1982, and the stories of the people whose hands the penny passed through. The image of the penny on the book’s cover is former U.S. president, Abraham Lincoln, whose image appears on U.S. pennies. The look on his face, and his wink, seems to indicate that some mischieveous things occourred that the PENNY observed. If you have any questions or comments about any of my books, please feel free to email me. Best wishes. Peter
