Jane Carroll, Author of Bertha Size Your Life Hits Number One on Amazon
Bertha Size Your Life! hit the number one spot on Amazon Kindle this week. The book has become a sensation and inspiration for baby boomers that have hit a wall in their life and feel they can’t go on.

Carroll knew she had a hit on her hands when Bertha popped into her head on an otherwise uneventful day eight years ago, but once the book was published she struggled with the marketing side of the business. After burning through her savings while trying unsuccessfully to promote her book she realized she would have to go back to work and left her dream behind.
In the fall of 2011 Carroll decided she had wasted enough time and took action to create her dream of becoming a bestselling author. She entered The Extreme Author Makeover Contest sponsored by MasterKoda.com (a book and author promotional service) and won a promotional package. That is when things started to turn around for her.
“Winning that contest was like opening the flood gates of success,” Carroll states. “Even before the promotions started doors were flying open for me. It’s like Bertha says in the book, ‘When life hands you an ostrich—make a boa!’”
Those looking for humor, wisdom and motivation wrapped up in one book would do well to pick up a copy of Bertha Size your Life!
