Rise to The Rhythm-Groove to Improve & Live Your Life’s Highest Capabilities, One Beat At A Time by Joey L. Dowdy
Happy Tuesday morning. It is a gorgeous day in my part of the world. I got to wake up, smell the fresh brew of coffee, sit on the patio deck and drink it. There is something to be said about the phrase, "You have to stop and smell the roses." Wait! As good as that sounds, I realize that if I don't do something else to energize myself, I become a desk or couch potato. Yep, here goes another saying, "If you don't use it, you lose it." Ouch! I must confess that I am very good at using my brain. I am constantly writing, editing or marketing with my Fiverr gigs. Yes, that right, I also freelance and offer numerous services for authors. If you want to know more about that, contact me.
Now back to moving. I hate to exercise with a passion. I swim -- in my mind, that's fun, not exercising. The same goes for walks in the park, hiking, or riding a bike. All of those fun activities I enjoy. The last really big activity I enjoy is dancing and by dancing, I am referring to any type of dancing. I can dance in the kitchen, dance as I clean, dance in the pool, dance in my living room, and I have taken ballroom dancing, which I love. This brings me to the next author, Joey L. Dowdy, AKA, Dr. Dancer, who I am going to introduce to my readers. I think you are really going to love learning about him and his new book "Rise to The Rhythm-Groove to Improve & Live Your Life’s Highest Capabilities, One Beat At A Time." This book is after my own heart.

JAMIE ALYSON - MAXIM MAGAZINE
Tell my readers about yourself.
|Jamie and her family.|
I’m a mother of two, a wife to a Coast Guardsmen and an artist at heart. When I’m not taking care of my children, cleaning, and cooking, you can find me painting galaxies and sacred geometry, practicing yoga or playing outside with my dragon staff. Here is a short video of me spinning the dragon staff.
What is a typical day like in your life?
My typical day usually begins with a good morning greeting from my four-year-old, followed by a cup a coffee and a simple breakfast. From there, we will play outside, paint or run into town for groceries. During the afternoon, I will practice yoga, work on ideas for my next painting and practice poses for modeling. Dinner soon comes around and we tend to eat together as a family on most nights. Soon after, the kids are put to bed and my husband and I have some quality time together if he is not on patrol.
What is your experience in the acting and modeling industry?
I’ve been pursuing acting and modeling since I was about eleven years old. Ten years later I landed my first big-screen movie in T.D. Jakes, Woman thou art Loosed: On the 7th Day and was able to obtain my SAG-Aftra card. I landed more serious modeling gigs when I moved to Los Angeles and really started breaking into the scene.
I want to show women from all over the world to never let anything hold you back from what you want to pursue. Showing them that age does not matter, whether you have kids or whatever it is that you think is holding you back, if you believe in yourself and work hard, you can make your dreams and passions come true.
How can you be a role model for younger girls?
To the generations coming of age now and in the years to come, I hope to show them that confidence is key. It doesn’t matter what career path you choose, with confidence people will believe in you and you will be able to conquer anything.
How do you juggle your career with being a Coast Guard wife and mother of two young boys?
By taking naps whenever possible! Lol. Seriously though, I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my husband, my mom and the rest of my family and friends supporting me through the entire journey. They are the reason why I am able to chase my dreams.
As a family, we also make certain that we are involved as a family. We go to a lot of festivals, do arts and crafts, and we love to camp and go hiking. I think it is important for all of us to be outdoors.
How do people vote for you?
They can vote for me by following this link https://maximcovergirl.com/2019/jamie-alyson There are two options to vote. A free daily vote that uses your Facebook account. Don’t worry, they are not spamming you or sharing that you voted, just making sure you are a real person. The other is a Warrior Vote, which is a donation-based vote that benefits Jared Allens’ Home for Wounded Warriors foundation. Not only does it help secure homes for veterans that fought for us and our country, but also helps me further along in the competition.
Why is it important to vote every day?
Voting every day is the sure-fire way that I will stay on top in the leaderboards of the competition. Without your support and votes, even the free ones, I will only go so far.
What else do you want your readers to know about you?
I think they would like to know that with winning this competition, I hope to start a non-profit organization that will provide access to free, clean water to those living all over the world. I’m truly passionate about helping people become their best selves as well. I am a certified yoga instructor and one of the greatest rewards is from getting to guide others in yoga is seeing them transform and be lifted out of a stagnant place, energetically. I hope that I can continue to inspire and uplift people and live true to my purpose of changing the world one person at a time through truth, love, and kindness.

What a glorious Sunday morning. I feel very blessed to spend another day on this world. Today I am introducing my readers to an author and their book. I hope you enjoy reading about him as I did. Meet Joey Kelly who goes by the pen name Julian Michael Carver and his book "A Raptor Ate My Homework," which is available on Amazon.
ABOUT THE BOOK
It's the first day of fourth-grade for twins Andy and Anna. Andy is a shy boy obsessed with dinosaurs and Anna is an adventurous girl willing to take risks. One day when they step off the school bus, Anna suggests taking a shortcut through a dark alley to get home.
As they navigate through the abandoned alley, they find a mysterious large egg tucked under a bush. They take it home and try to hatch it, careful not to tell their parents who are strict about pets. After building a makeshift nest in the attic, the egg hatches into a friendly baby velociraptor, whom they later name Tennyson, due to his infatuation with destroying tennis balls.
Now they must convince their parents to keep the little dinosaur, while overcoming bad grades and the school bully.
