Book Spotlight w/ $25 Giveaway: My Name is Bryan by Stacy Lynn Carroll

My Name is BryanMy Name is Bryan by Stacy Lynn Carroll

If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you jump too? Bryan chose to dive. Moments later, as he lay on the beach, unable to move his arms or legs, two questions ran through his mind: Would he walk again? And would he ever have kids? Based on the incredible true story of life, love, and never giving up.

Praise for the book:
"I plowed through his story, amazed at how he could so easily accept something that would destroy anyone else and just move forward with such a positive attitude. I don't give many 5 stars, but it's well-earned. This book really touched me. It's the kind of story that stays with you for a long time."
--Amazon customer

"I actually love stories like this. Ones that show the power of the human spirit and what love and determination can achieve. I cried multiple times while reading this but they were a happy sort of hopeful tears. If you are looking for something uplifting and motivational read this heart-felt story of love and hope."
--Inspired Kathy ;)

"You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wring your hands in frustration, and you won't be able to put it down to go to sleep as you keep waiting to read about Bryan's happily ever after. This is one of those books that stick with you long after you've finished reading it."

"Each chapter begins with an inspirational quote to lead the reader into the goodness, hardship, unconditional love, and humor that is Bryan's life. The 30 year journey the reader takes runs smoothly page after page. You will cry and you will laugh. You will want to hug Nedra and Bryan when you are finished."
--Kriss A.

Book Excerpt:

Nedra stood in the open doorway of Room 213, studying the new patient. Born and raised in California, she could only assume she was staring at a fellow Californian. Everything from his shaggy, sandy-blonde hair to his tanned skin screamed surfer boy. She hadn’t meant to stare, but his good looks caught her off guard. Now she realized she had been staring too long, but thankfully he hadn’t seemed to notice.
“You gonna come in, or you helping hold up that door frame?”
Or not. Nedra straightened up and brushed off her shirt before approaching his bed and that playboy smile. “So what are you in for?” she asked, leaning against the metal frame of his bed.
“I was cliff diving. It was the best swan dive of my entire life! Unfortunately, I didn’t have the best landing.” Bryan made a loud popping sound with his mouth. “Then a short six weeks later and I am here. So, what do we need to do to get this party started?”
“Just a minute, superman, you may be out of traction now, but that doesn’t mean you can dive straight into physical therapy.
