The Legacy Life of Carew Papritz

by Melissa Reyes

January 23, 2018

It doesn’t surprise me that Carew Papritz is a dynamic storyteller who is passionate about his book, The Legacy Letters. What surprises me is how creative and intriguing his journey has been as he has been promoting the book and bringing his message to readers around the world.

Carew and his book are all about firsts and onlys. It’s the “first book in publishing and literary history to win awards in both fiction and non-fiction categories,” he says proudly.

He is the only author who has ever signed books on horseback, on a train, from the top of Mount St. Helen’s – – he even did it while stomping grapes at a vineyard!  Papritz was also the first American author to do a “post Castro” book signing event in Cuba. He is willing to do what it takes to share his inspiring stories, the insightful, introspective, guidance manual for life, the letters to the children, the legacy letters. They are his letters. They were written for all children. Kind, comforting, prophetic, they are only part of the story.

Check out this short preview:

Live Life to the Fullest

The central message of the book is “live life to the fullest,” says Papritz, as he explains how he wrote the book as he went through a major life defining moment. He learned about himself through the writing process and from time to time he realizes he “needs” to read his book for a reminder to go slow. The fatherly advice in the book covers a “hope chest” of timeless values such as integrity, kindness, empathy, politeness, humility, and love.

Some people have found the book uplifting and inspiring, and it has been touted to be a Rorschach Test of sorts, to “see what you need to see at that point in your life.” This is how it got it’s non-fiction status. It has become a life lessons book.

Carew challenged me to open the book at a random page and just read to see what it was like. WOW! Check out page 109. That’s all I have to say. He calls that part of the story “the everything and nothing of money.”

Every hour lived is an hour spent. Spend well the quality of your time. -Carew Papritz, The Legacy Letters

Ultimately, Carew’s own legacy is for his own family. His wife and son are the focus of his life. He is mindful of every moment and lives his best life with them. He calls this his Legacy Life.

Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz Presents:

Author of The Legacy Letters, Carew Papritz

Wednesday, December 21, 2017, 6:00 pm Pacific Time

Carew is passionate about living the central message of his inspirational book, The Legacy Letters, by living life to the fullest. As a result, he’s done book signings on top of volcanoes, on horseback at Barnes & Noble, on whistle-stop book tours on Amtrak, while river rafting, on top of the Space Needle, outside The Today Show, and next to Niagara Falls!

carew-papritz-photo-low-resCowboy Carew, as he likes to be called, has created such national events as “The Great Legacy Letters Book Balloon Launch” in which kids sent aloft miniature versions of my book by balloon and then tracked how far they traveled. The event also helped such charities as The Make-a-Wish Foundation, Reading is Fundamental, and the Military Mama Network by creating a world record!

With his background of working on feature films in Hollywood, Papritz has created a number of YouTube videos series that help promote kids to read more.  One series called, “I love to read and . . .” has him reading The Legacy Letters while actually doing various activities such as skiing over a cliff, riding a horse, walking up to a castle, and much more! He loves a good adventure!

3d_book_comp_5awards-lo-res-pngIn the spirit of the book, Carew has done TV and radio interviews that include such topics as, “How to write the Perfect Love Letter for Valentine’s Day,” “How to Get Your ‘i-Kid’ Back to the Holiday Table,” “How to Create the Perfect Gap Year,” “How the Olympic Games Made Me an Award-Winning Author,” “How to Reconnect with Family in This Technology-Drenched World,” and the incredibly cute, “How to Write the Perfect Letter to Santa Claus!”

“If I get to walk my talk, live my book, and inspire people to do the same—while being outdoors—then I’m a happy man!” ~Carew Papritz

book-balloon-launch-bostonCowboy Carew Papritz really loves sharing with the world the inspirational stories that people have revealed to him about their lives from their reading “The Legacy Letters.”  H finds their stories to be moving, heart breaking, fantastical, and soul humbling.  He also loves talking about how kids can be inspired to read more by making reading seem more cool and exciting with his book adventures.

Farewell Tinsel Town  – Hello Inspiring Adventures!

Carew had this idea when we first planned doing an interview together…he wrote on my form:

“A suggestion:  How about doing a special video segment where we walk the streets of Hollywood, Sunset Blvd area, UCLA, and/or other areas while talking about my transition from UCLA Film School, working on features, music videos, and commercials to then becoming a working cowboy in Arizona while writing a multi-award winning book?  Might be a fascinating segment.  Let me know what you think?”

I was wowed by this idea! Carew seemed to have an insight about the direction I wanted to go with my interviews. So, we will be walking and talking on my first interview in a new series: Inspiring Adventures with Miz Meliz. Watch for it in late February 2017.

Thank you to everyone who allowed me to interview them on Tinsel Town Live this year. It really is my very own passion project. I love doing it and I am looking forward to seeing how it will grow and flourish in 2017 as part of A Year in Bloom! with love and gratitude, Melissa @MizMeliz
