ENCOURAGED by the positive feedback to her first book, motivational author Joan Wright-Good is in Jamaica to launch her second publication, You Are Different For A Reason; Maximize Your Difference.

According to Wright-Good, the 155-page, self-published 'labour of love' is geared at inspiring and developing readers to achieve.

"It's a diverse book. It's more than a self-help book... It is aimed at encouraging, motivating, and empowering people," she told the Jamaica Observer ahead of tomorrow's launch at Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston.

Wright-Good spoke about the book's focus.

"We all have to do a self-inventory... then invest in the things we do great," she said. "A lot of us have gone through life's challenges. Growing up, you were probably the only one in the sandbox; but nothing's wrong with that. Moses went up to Mount Sinai alone when he received the Commandments; Jesus was handed his mantle when he was alone," she continued.

You Are Different For A Reason had its American launch at the Boca Marriott hotel in Florida in May. The Florida-based Wright-Good has since made similar appearances in New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

The book will be available on amazon.com and in Barnes and Noble in two weeks.

Wright-Good's 2009 debut, From Brokenness to Victory: The Price of My Breakthrough, was a tell-all autobiography which tracked her troubled childhood to separation from then husband Calvin 'Prodigal Son' Whilby.
