The Aviatrix: Fly Like a Girl, for the Holidays
|Village of Sugar Mountain, North Carolina – Monday, November 14, 2016 The Aviatrix: Fly Like a Girl, written by Kimberley Jochl is a soulful gift for the holidays or any occasion.
“For all her accomplishments in international ski racing, Jochl writes in captivating detail her conquest over fear and self-doubt learning to fly in her first self-published work, The Aviatrix. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to fly (and who hasn’t imagined that), the first-time author takes the reader along with her as she earns her private pilot certificate. Jochl’s first-person narrative delivers a candid view into her heart and soul as she faces the sometimes comical, and sometimes terrifying realities of taking to the skies alone. The Aviatrix is a quick and easy read and a light-hearted look at the business of learning to fly small air-planes.” Carolina Mountain Life Autumn 2016.
You can find The Aviatrix in time for this holiday season online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Aircraft Spruce, and Pilot Shop. You’ll also find it in several brick and mortar locations throughout the southeast like Barnes & Noble Asheville Mall, Johnson City, and Buckhead Atlanta, Fred’s General Mercantile, The Elizabethton Municipal Airport, Tri-City Aviation, the Appalachian State University Bookstore, Lees McRae College Bookstore, Grandfather Mountain Nature Museum, Reid’s Café, Footsloggers,Lowes Foods – Banner Elk, Alpine Ski Center, and Sugar Mountain Sports Shop.
Look for Kim’s second book, a memoir, to be published in early 2017. For more information browse through www.kimberleyjochl.com.
