OVER THE OCEAN IS A SMASH HIT
He wrote it giving finite detail to everything; from booking his trip, booking his rounds at various courses and his driving skills or lack thereof! If you're interested in traveling to Scotland or would like to plan a vacation there this is the book for you. He gives great information on booking and navigating various b&bs, international car rental, calling home from Europe, your phone won't work there, to playing rounds of golf. I will invest in getting a hard copy of this book because I enjoyed it that much. Even if you don't like the game of golf this book is a vicarious glimpse into a bucket list trip!
FIVE STARS - "Enjoyable"
I love reading about his experiences on and off the golf course. The score cards and pictures were a nice touch. One can really see how interesting the courses were. Trying to picture myself on some of those tee boxes with my handicap which is my swing would be unbelievable. This book could be a good outline to help people plan their trip. I also like hearing about how friendly and helpful the people were. All in all an enjoyable book.
Very readable and enjoyable! And dare I say a bit flattering to us dire Scots.

I gave this book to my father as a Father's Day present. He loved it! He normally takes a long time to finish a book. But this one he could hardly put down. Well done!

Jay A. Blum was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but moved to the sun-kissed shores of South Florida at the age of three. As an adult, Jay had the privilege to live and work in nineteen countries, five U.S. states, four aircraft carriers and one Indian Reservation.
Diagnosed with Stage 3-B Hodgkin's Disease and Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma, which ultimately took his thyroid, both of his kidneys and 85% of the sight in both eyes, Jay had to retire from his traveling circus. Now as a card carrying member of the Georgia Writer’s Association, Non-Fiction Author's Association, National Writers Union and The Author’s Guild, Jay now lives with his wife and son while writing from the comfort of his home in a quaint and small town in Georgia.
In addition to writing, Jay travels the globe proudly speaking to intimate groups and packed lecture halls about not giving up the fight. About living with cancer. About living without kidneys and the failures and successes of being on dialysis and how to advocate for your rights as a patient and a human being against the medical community.
Jay works with many fine organizations that help him to tell his story and ultimately help others live better lives while dealing with a terminal illness. Jay is a patient advocate for these organizations and helps inform others about how these organizations have helped save his life.
If you would like to schedule Jay to speak to your organization, dialysis facility, patients or staff. please contact Blind Author Publishing through our CONTACT US section.
