One of the reasons Quotes are so popular on all the Social Media channels including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest is because one or two short sentences can change your day.
Rather than compiling a book of quotes from other people, Troy Gathers created his own “stop and think” quotes. One for each day of the year.
I chatted with Troy Gathers to find out more about his book Take Me With You.
Melanie Rockett: Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
Troy Gathers: I hail from Charleston, South Carolina. I am an entrepreneur and PhD student that has a lot to share with the world. I began writing stories at an early age but this is my first published book. My first book project is titled Take Me With You.
Melanie Rockett: How did you come to write Take Me With You
Troy Gathers: Over the past 8-10 years of business I have encountered great success, turn of events and revelations. In this time frame I gained insight on three specific areas; Friends, Family and Faith. From my experiences I have gathered a keen understanding on these three crucial areas, which I decided to write this book. The purpose of Take Me With You is to be thought provoking and challenging to the reader, this is my sole reasoning.
Melanie Rockett: Take Me With You is a book of Daily Inspirations. Rather than quoting “other” people, you wrote all the content yourself. Where did YOU get the “inspirations” from?
Troy Gathers: I gathered the inspiration from my journey. As an entrepreneur I have been blessed to travel all over the Americas and abroad. From my experiences in school, business and life; I have obtained a great deal of information that I wanted to share. These quotes are not feel good quotes, they are real quotes and words of wisdom.
Melanie Rockett: How would you suggest readers use the book?
Troy Gathers: I suggest readers use this book as a travel guide. No, I’m not telling you where to go but I’m advising the reader on what to expect when you get there. This book touches on so many subjects and can be used for all walks of life.
Melanie Rockett: There are over 700 “original” quotes in Take Me With You, which is labeled as Volume I. Are you working on Volume 2 or do you have any other books on the back or front burner?
Troy Gathers: Absolutely, Take Me With You is the first installment but I’m sure that there will be many additions to the series not limited to just books. Be sure to grab your copy on Amazon.com and Kindle. Thank you for the interview and this year Take Me With You.
