This is quite an interesting and intriguing article about short story writing.
Maybe some of us would like to support this very generous gesture by Russel Ray who is sharing his profits from the sale of his photographic Art with animal rescue groups and wildlife sanctuaries throughout the US provided they are registered charity organizations.
My wise old grandmother taught me to share.
I have decided to share the profits from the sale of my Photographic Art with animal rescue groups and wildlife sanctuaries throughout the United States, as long as they are charitable organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
I will share in your name if you contact me to let me know when and what Photographic Art you purchased. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also will share with your preferred rescue group or sanctuary; again, just let me know. Otherwise, I will share with my preferred rescue groups and sanctuaries.
My Photographic Art is available at Fine Art America, a print-on-demand site with a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. So if you don’t like your product for any reason, or no reason at all, simply return it and get your money back. That’s why I located my…

Kristen Lamb published an amazing motivational post that it definitely is worth re-blogging. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do. She is a great person and an expert who know what she talks about. Thank you Kristen!
What do you want? How badly do you want it? What are you willing to sacrifice? These are the questions we must ask not once, but daily. There is no success without the GRIND.
Or perhaps, the G.R.I.N.D.
Every day we have something to give that will keep propelling us forward. I love, love, love the movie Rocky. This is among my favorite quotes:
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and…

Kylie Betzner has published a guest blog by Rayne Hall about “The Art of Proctrastination”. It is quite an interesting read. 😉 I love it.
March 29, 2013 Kimbereley Grabas published a blog post on “Your Writer Platform”, where she mentions “11 Author Website Must Haves”.
I personally think the article is enormously important and for beginners like me very useful in a way to use like a step-by-step manual.
She mentions her 11 most useful elements with detailed description which makes the article easy to read and follow:
1. Designing Your Author Website: Ensure a Good First Impression
2. About/Bio Page
3. Contact Information
4. Email Sign Up/Updates
6. Social Media
7. Books, Products and Services
8. A Blog
9. Appearances/Speaking Engagements/Latest News/Events
10. Press Page/Media Kit
If you need help with your Website, I figure it comes in handy. Enjoy the blog post, and I’m sure you will find it as helpful as I do.
Holy smokes!! These are just hilarious. Have fun reading them, I personally was howling with laughter. Enjoy!
Thank God for church ladies with typewriters. These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services:
1. Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa, will be speaking tonight at Calvary Methodist. Come hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.
2. Announcement in a church bulletin for a national PRAYER & FASTING Conference: “The cost for attending the Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.
3. The sermon this morning: “Jesus Walks on the Water.”
4. Our youth basketball team is back in action Wednesday at 8 PM in the recreation hall – Come out and watch us kill Christ the King.
5. Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.
6. The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been cancelled due to a…

Please, help voting for blogs. I think it’s such a great chance! And you will meet interesting and fascinating new blogs and bloggers.
You nominated in your hundreds – literally! I had to enlist a committee of fabulous bloggers (Ali, Geoff and Hugh) to help organise all the nominations and sort them into this, the official voting post. To find out more about the #BloggersBash event have a look at this, this or this.
Before we begin voting, there’s one more thing to add. The lovely Geoff decided we needed to stand out from the crowd so that y’all can find us at the British Library on the 1st August. So he has ordered some Annual Bloggers Bash t-shirts. The committee will be wearing them, but it was cheaper to bulk buy, so inevitably we have spares. SO, if you win one of the awards then a t shirt is yours! But if you would like a t-shirt anyway then they will be £6 on the day. Geoff is…

I think, in particular to new authors this site is excellent to check out!
The reason I started http://savvybookwriters.wordpress.com initially, was to warn authors of traps they can fall in, after a friend of mine has been deceived by a so-called vanity publisher. Well, she was very naive and did not seek the help of a lawyer, specialized in contract law, nor the advice of her well-meaning author friends or her writer’s group. After having her manuscript sent out to several dozens of publishers and receiving only rejections, she was so eager to get published, that she did not want to hear any warnings and signed her rights away for 70 years after her death! Not only this, she also paid more than $6.000 to have her print book published. Until now (3 years past the initial launch) the vanity “publisher” failed to format it into an e-book, despite his many promises.
For those who do not know what…
