The Kindle platform has changed the publishing world forever. Now, if you want to publish a book, you don’t have to send dozens of query letters to agents and publishing houses, to brace yourself for the rejection letters, and to be morally prepared to wait between 6 months and 1 year for your book to hit the shelves in case you do get accepted. No, now all you have to do is sit at your desk, write your book, then format it for Kindle, create an irresistible cover, and publish it on Amazon. And the best part is that you get to keep the majority of your sales money.

So, why not publish your own book and share your knowledge with the entire world? Maybe you are intimidated by the fact that you have never written one and you don’t know how to go about it? Or maybe you don’t have enough time to write it… The truth is that the real problem is not the lack of time, but the lack of strategy. This is the conclusion Nancy Hendrickson came to after being a freelance writer for many years and after writing and publishing more than a dozen print books and Kindle books. In her guide, “How to Write for Kindle”, she lays out a 5-step write-fast strategy that can help anyone write a non-fiction book in 72 hours, or even less.

The first thought that might cross your mind will probably be that this is impossible. Or, if it’s not impossible, then the best you could come up with in 72 hours would be a bunch of non-consistent, low quality pieces of information put together in the form of an eBook. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Nancy Hendrickson’s strategy is simple and effective, but still requires a lot of work and effort, because in this short period of time you must come up with the best non-fiction book you’ve ever written. And it is perfectly possible and achievable.

“How to Write for Kindle” will teach you everything you need to know in order to write a consistent, highly informative non-fiction eBook. You will learn how to do your research quickly and effectively, and how to write up to 2000 words an hour. Also, you will learn how to pick the best niche to maximize your profit, which doesn’t mean you’re going to write in a niche you don’t know much about. It is very important to understand that you’ll never be able to write a good book in a niche you don’t know just by doing some online research. You have to choose your niche carefully, because you’ll only have great results if you can prove that you are an expert in it.

The book covers many other topics, and the information you’ll find might not be available elsewhere. You can find “How to Write for Kindle: A Non-Fiction Book in 72-Hours or Less” on Amazon.

Every writer in this world, either if we refer to a novelist, a poet or a journalist, has been confronted at least once in their lifetime with the dreaded writer’s block. What do you do when, day after day, you sit at your desk, your mind blank and the paper in front of you equally blank? How to push through the frustration of not managing to put together two sentences and regain your inspiration? Nancy L. Hendrickson, author of several guides for writers, offers you the solution in “Writer’s Block: Vanquished! Using Images, Oracles and Brain-Hacks (Writing Skills).”

The author points out that there are several causes which lead to experiencing writer’s block, be it a lack of inspiration, good old procrastination or the current issues in one’s personal life. However, regardless of its cause, writer’s block can be overcome if you start implementing the techniques provided by Nancy Hendrickson in her guide. She stresses the importance of using images, be it your own photos or random ones found on the Internet, and the major role they can play in rekindling your inspiration and finding new writing ideas. Among other easy-to-implement strategies and ingenious practical ideas, Hendrickson offers a number of brain-hacks that are bound to considerably improve the quality of your writing (for example, consuming foods rich in Omega-3).

In the last part of this guide you will find three interviews with the following writers: Joanna Penn, Sherrie Dolby, and Joe Bunting. Each of them shares from their own experience with writer’s block and what tricks they’ve used in order to overcome it.

Zen and Sex (A Romantic Comedy) by Dermot Davis – FREE for a limited time!!

Pin it to remember it!

 

Martin has it bad, he’s fallen in love with an older woman.  He didn’t know that the relationship was going to be so much different than one he would have with someone more his age.  She wants the relationship to be in a Zen manner, talking about feelings (what?) communicating, be conscious about what his thoughts are and be able to talk about those feelings?  More importantly,  she wants total honesty about everything, no matter what.

He’s a typical 24 year old, he’s always thinking about sex, just like most 24 year old guys.   He’s in a conundrum, he’s in love with her, the Zen – not so much.

Martin has a bad track record with long-term relationships.  After dating a number of women Martin  finally finds someone to love and she’s an older woman who wants a Zen relationship.  Even with the stipulation of the relationship that Zen in essential part of it, he really wants this relationship so he dives in head first.

Martin is written in the first person which gives the author, Dermot Davis,  the opportunity to show what “real” people  go through when building a relationship.  It is very apparent hat Davis is very fond of the characters in this short book.   Martin goes through a number of psychological gymnastics while attempting to hold on to a piece of himself while trying to work within the given parameters.  Just thinking of the premise is funny.  Martin, like most people has not taken a lot of time to look at himself and most other people haven’t.  Actually it might be funny watching him trying to stay out of his own way while delving into those murky waters

I’m sure, that for someone totally untrained in analytical skills the conclusions he comes to are a riot. Which would be a good premise for a sequel to this charmer.    I know I’d be interested in it, wouldn’t you.

Now, do you remember that at the beginning I told that his book is free for a limited time.  Hurry on over and get your FREE  copy on Amazon.  Find it here -  http://amzn.to/12F1ZvS

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Pin it to remember it!

Among my many pet peeves is the name “chick lit”.    It’s a  classification that  is used to categorize little gems created by some of the funniest, most insightful writers today.   The “chick lit” reference misleads most readers into thinking that all the books in this genre are funny pieces of fluff.

There is much more to the “Husband’s Secret” than fluff.  Liane Moriarty creates very believable characters wrestling with real emotional issues that arise from the contents of a letter.

Cecelia had everything in order.  Her life was perfect, her daughters were perfect, her marriage and job were perfect. She was also perfectly neurotic.  While looking for a souvenir piece of the Berlin Wall  she had from a trip when she was in college, a letter literally fell into her hands.  She hadn’t been going through John-Pauls things, the letter fell out of a box that  landed on her head when she stumbled into his stack of shoe box files and the messy stack collapsed all over the attic floor. It was only supposed to  be opened by Cecelia who is married to John-Paul, in the event of his death.

Here is the first moral dilemma and the point of this novel; should she open the letter, can she keep herself from opening it?  What would you do?

Don’t get me wrong, there are some real comedy gems in here and sense that not everyone takes themselves too seriously.  Or they take themselves too seriously, which in itself, is pretty funny.

Liane Moriarity is a talented wordsmith with a wicked sense of humor.  Her plotting and the pace that is set from page one will keep you turning the pages until you get friction burns on your finger tips.

To find out what transpired when this Pandora’s box revealed it’s contents, you need to buy “The Husband’s Secret”. Get your copy of  “The Husband’s Secret” from Amazon.  Find it here – http://amzn.to/14Ye4Jg

“7:10″ by Dominique Wilkins

One of the most important things in one’s life is undoubtedly their family. It is within this protective circle represented by parents, grandparents, aunts, siblings, and so on that we learn the first things about life, we discover ourselves, we grow, and we learn what love and appreciation are. However, many families are marked by pain and suffering because of domestic violence, an issue which affects a considerable number of people who are currently in a relationship.

In “7:10”, Dominique Wilkins approaches the matter of domestic violence, skillfully writing about the struggles of a disunited family. In this short story, the author managed to interweave lessons from the Scriptures with real-life elements and issues, such as sexual relationships. Although “7:10” comprises a few passages of what can be classified as adult content, these parts have been narrated tastefully and they haven’t been overdone.

“7:10” revolves around Adele and her family – her parents Charlotte and Greg, and her sister Estelle. Thinking about the biblical teachings on cherishing and respecting your life partner, Charlotte decides to give Greg and their marriage another chance, hoping that things would get better, but his husband’s violent character leads to the death of almost the entire family. Despite the fact that Greg is responsible for this tragic event, the police does not charge him for the crimes, and, moreover, the children’s grandmother takes all the blame for the murders.

The biblical teachings incorporated into the story are meant to inspire the readers and to remind them what a family should be – a nucleus of peace and love around which its members are united, deeply caring for one another.

Dominique Wilkins wrote yet again a thought-provoking, heart-touching short story. The action is fast-paced, the descriptions are concise and pleasant, contributing to a better understanding of the book’s universe and of the family’s tragic story.

The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm

Pin it to remember it!

With the onset of the 20th Century, the premise of love became that the only love that was valid was romantic love. It also became about being loved as opposed to loving.  It used to be that the love between two people was something that grew over time because most marriages were arranged or happened for reasons of business or political connections.

Our airwaves and literature are filled with messages mostly about “romantic love” and how we can become loved, not talking about how we can love.  There is a misconception that love is only valid when you “fall” in love.

We think that in order for someone to fall in love with us we must be the best “package” because we are objects of affection.  We must be the best weight we can be, the best visual presentation is part of being desirable.  We want to be loved not just for that  but for our hidden talents and possibilities.

We seek mates  based on what we have to offer and what possibilities we see in the others.    We go for the best object available on the market .  In other words, human love follows the same patterns of exchange as the commodities and labor markets

He talks about instant infatuation that is often misunderstood to be the real thing and then because after the initial excitement, boredom ensues.  Then it falls apart and it pretty much ends.   I have always called this love “falling in lust” which is a recipe for disaster after all the allure is pursued and then gone.

This is how Eric Fromm begins his book.  It’s laying the foundation for talking about giving love and growing love and how you develop the skills to  it all.  Erick Fromm was one of the foremost philosophers of the 20th Century.

Want to have a deeper understanding of love and how to give and receive it?  This is the book you’ve been looking for.  You can buy it on Amazon.  Find it here – http://amzn.to/13pPFwT

The authors strongly believe in the healing power of eating right, and they also encourage exercising regularly, spending time in nature, and also allowing our bodies time to rest and recover.

“Hallelujah Diet” is like a pack of goodies – it comes with eating plans, it offers great recipes, journals, worksheets, and it even includes a list of recommended books.
