Allison Maslan's best seller My Blast Off!

It is tough competition for our book-of-the-month selection. You need to have a special message that will resonate with our readership.

San Diego, CA (Vocus) September 16, 2010

Sure you’re familiar with Oprah’s Book Club. But how about the Me: In Focus Book of the Month? The magazine Me: In Focus just picked their must read book for October and it is “Blast Off!” by Allison Maslan. The magazine is targeted toward women who boldly celebrate both brains and beauty. It is where runway meets reality, style meets substance and haute meets heart. Picking great reads for their audience is their latest trend.

Bee Li, founder and editor-in-chief, felt she had found a kindred spirit with the bestselling author Allison Maslan when they met last month in Chicago on Maslan’s Rocket Tour Across the USA for her book “My Blast Off!”

“Allison is so inspirational,” Li said. “It is tough competition for our book-of-the-month selection. You need to have a special message that will resonate with our readership.”

Li says Maslan can talk the talk because she walks the walk.

“I loved her guts. That’s what so many of us want, but our fear holds us back. She steers clear of that noise. For every closed door that was thrown her way, she found a way to open it.”

On relationships, Li feels that Maslan also offers solutions.

“Allison says to open your heart, even to love. She used “My Blast Off” process to find her soul mate. I was so totally pleased to know this could happen.”

Maslan describes steps to launching your dreams into reality in clear, concise terms.

“I love her real life approach,” adds Li. “The process helps you organize your goals and compartmentalize them so tasks are not so daunting. She gets you to reach for the sky while keeping you grounded with actual, practical tips on how to get there. The process is very concrete and I love the way she blends the practical with the dream.”

The October issue of Me: In Focus spotlights the amazing entrepreneurs of Chicago. Maslan’s book is the perfect fit.

“Our magazine is an entrepreneurial focus tied to the emerging entrepreneurial spirit in Chicago,” said Li. “Books that focus on how-to are a growing market. We are all given important life choices. We need to be able to turn those choices into opportunities.”

As Allison says, “Don’t underestimate yourself – We all have something we are good at, let’s see if you can turn that passion into profitability.”
