Help a new author get publishedAbout the Author?
Buffi Neal is a full time writer and mother of two currently living in a small town in central New Jersey. She earned her Master of Computer Science from Lehigh University. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in both Mathematics and Physics.
Buffi is the second oldest of five children. Growing up poor, without the luxury of nice clothes, heat or even toilet paper, gave her inner strength and perseverance. She worked her way through college by cleaning houses, was awarded an academic scholarship, and went on to become CEO of a successful business. Buffi’s life is full of unique experiences that color her stories.
Buffi lost everything in the 2009 recession, but is living happier with less. In her year off of work, she wrote a memoir entitled Wonderfully Dysfunctional - It Must be Genetic. It's very difficult for new authors to break into the industry, so the poll will be used simply show publishers that readers might be interested.
Why a poll?
When publishers say, "You're not famous, who cares about you."
Buffi would like to say, "Exactly, I'm not famous. That's why readers will relate to me as a mother, sister, daughter or friend."
Buffi's goal is to get 1,000 people to read the book overview and then take the poll (2 questions).
- Taking the poll does not add you to any mailing list and does not imply that you will buy any book.
- Please be honest in the poll. Saying that you are not interested does not in any way hurt your chances to win the giveaway.
