Get $15 to upload each of your novels to Inkitt. !!!Really.


 Follow the instructions and SCORE. Make sure to copy me when you submit your novel, at Blowers.mary@gmail.com

Do you have friends who write novels? If they upload them onto Inkitt until the end of THIS WEEK, we will award them with $15 for EVERY novel, and you get $15 as well.

>> Just forward this email to your friends

Hi there,

We have a reason to celebrate and decided to award you $15 for EVERY new novel you submit until the end of THIS WEEK.

Did you know we’re now picking another novel for publication every week? This means that YOUR chances of winning a publishing deal have now significantly increased!

How do you increase your chances even further? It’s simple: The more novels you upload onto Inkitt, the greater your chances of being chosen (because you give readers more stories to potentially fall in love with). Ironically, many of our now published authors got chosen for works which they would have never expected to find an audience for. It’s simply not possible to predict what readers are looking for, it might be the novel you have re-written for the 7th time, or an unfinished draft you wrote within a week. This is why we have decided to encourage all our novelists to show off more of their works. You never know what’s in store for you.

I’ll personally handle the uploads for you, just send me your novel(s) as Word docx. files (must be min. 20,000 words) to specialoffer@inkitt.com, CC your friend from whom you received this email and your $15, $30, $45, $150, or more is on its way to you.

Last week we had our 20th book launch which became our 19th Amazon bestseller, and we’re looking forward to a great year with ~30 remaining successful publications – One of them could be you!

Love,
Lauren

Article in Better Homes and Gardens: Quilt Sampler


Something a little different today. My mom and I recently stopped in to a local quilting shop, Pressing Matters, and found that the shop was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine. Since this is right down the street from my house and I know the owner, I wanted to pick up the magazine, give a little more information and give a little support to the owner, Kelly Kindt.

You can get the article here.  the article 

And here’s my photos of this darling shop.

Book Review: Speed Up Your Metabolism: Strategies That Will Help You Lose More Weight!


Buy here: http://amzn.to/2pUBGnR  Free right now until May 11.

If you’re looking to try a new diet book this spring, this may be the one. I knew some of the tips in Speed Up Your Metabolism, but had forgotten or stopped using them. But some of Smith’s tips were new to me. Reading the book inspired me to drop a few pounds this spring. I especially liked the list of foods that will speed metabolism. I like green tea and it would be oh, so easy to drink three cups a day.

Starting a new job last week I had to give up my “life of leisure” and start getting up early every day again. I could use some more energy and this book will definitely help me to get it. If I lose a few pounds in the process, so much better.

Enjoy! And let me know if this book helps you.

Book Review: The Professor and the Bird


5107LFgCziL

Buy here

The Professor and the Bird by Roberta Franklin is one of the longer books I have read in a while, but it was a fast read none the less. It’s an entertaining story of a young woman motor biking through Turkey when her bike breaks down and she happens upon an archaeological dig. While her motorcycle is being fixed by some of the dig participants, she learns a little bit about ancient history from Professor Nicos. She is attractive and pursued by most of the young men in the dig. The amateur in the group, she somehow finds a valuable artifact and is celebrated for it. However this also makes her a target for criminals who wish to obtain the treasure for themselves. The story is convincingly written and there is plenty of romance. Romance fans will love this book.
