Book about life receives new marketing campaign

Vickie Edwards Smith takes readers on journey, shows them ‘The Checkerboard Game of Life’

RANDOLPH, Mass. – “When life starts to throw curveballs and you feel like you have nowhere to turn, what weapon will you pick up?”Author Vickie Edwards Smith asks this question and invites readers in an odyssey as they plunge on “The Checkerboard Game of Life” (published by iUniverse) to answer the aforementioned question. Her book first published in 2015 brings readers on a journey with a character that they may relate to – following her life’s challenges from childhood, teenage and adulthood and witnessing the decisions that the character made, in order, to conquer.

Traveling on Eva’s journey through her situations in life, will give the reader a clearer understanding of how to develop inner peace and understand how they arrived where they are today. The reader will learn how to create a map for living a balanced, more fulfilling life and see life as a baton of knowledge and decision making worth passing on to the next generation.

“The Checkerboard Game of Life” reminds readers that everyone has been instilled with a joy within that no one can take away.  It can only be given away.  Everyone is given the gift of life and purpose, and the author reckons it is time to understand and recognize one’s purpose and where his or her strength for success comes from.

“Everyone goes through obstacles through life. The obstacles are not what’s important. The decisions that are made, in how to handle the obstacles are key,” Smith says.
