BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world leader in supported self-publishing services, is featuring Archway Publishing author Craig MacFarlane in its Real Authors, Real Impact campaign.
MacFarlane turned his unique life-lessons into a self-published book, Craig MacFarlane Hasnt Heard of You Either! released through Archway in late 2013. U.S. President George H.W. Bush, a close friend of MacFarlanes since 1984, contributed the foreword to the book.
I first met Craig in 1984 when President Reagan invited him to carry the Olympic torch through Washington D.C., on its way to the Los Angeles Games, wrote President Bush in his foreword of MacFarlanes book. Craig is a man whose own inner flame of determination, boundless energy and courage served as a point of light in countless lives.
MacFarlane suffered a total loss of sight as the result of a tragic accident at the age of two, but hasnt let his hardships stand in the way of establish an incredible athletic career. He is often referred to as the Worlds Most Celebrated Totally Blind Athlete.
MacFarlanes accomplishments include winning more that 100 gold medals in various athletic competitions many against sighted athletes; competing as the first blind professional athlete in wrestling, and holds wrestling, snow-skiing, and water-skiing national championships in two countries simultaneously.
MacFarlanes athletic success has spawned a 30-year career as an internationally renowned keynote inspirational speaker. He has taken his words of wisdom to schools, corporate meetings, the media, political and religious leaders, to most recently, the pages of his own book.
I am honored to have had the chance to put the lessons I have learned throughout my life on to the pages of my very own book, said MacFarlane. I have a great passion and desire to want to make a difference in the lives of others, and I will continue to strive to inspire and motivate others by sharing my story.
