Here's our third and final segment of the interview with Kate Skidmore. If you have missed Part 1 or Part 2 it would be good to check those out. We first introduced you to Kate in a blog post titled "Kate's Topple."
My introduction to this segment of the interview explains why Topplers is supporting Kate and her efforts of getting a book published. If after listening to the interview you are inspired and motivated to help Kate please let us know (a simple comment to this blog will work).
Here's what Kate recently sent me in an email message regarding her thoughts on the next dominos in her Topple:
As you can see Kate is thinking like a Toppler - seeing the world through the perspective of Domino Theory - and working to place dominos in her 'topple.'
Remember in the earlier blog post (read it here) how we listed ways in which people could help move this Topple forward? Well it occurred to me that we actually have a more developed wish list. I don't know if this would be helpful to include in one of the other blog posts for the second or third interview segments but I thought I would toss it out there.
1. We are seeking endorsements for the book from recognizable people related to adoption and/or international development. We are hoping to connect with Mac Powell from Third Day (Christian Music Group), The Touhy Family from The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock who has also adopted a new little baby boy, Senator John McCain, Rick Warren.
2. Connections to a Literary Agent and/or a Publisher who deals with memoires and would consider working with first time authors.
There are more steps but they will not come until later. So I guess that is all for now.Kate
