So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Kindle books are such a good deal.

Do you read books on your Kindle? 
Click on this link and find Paws, Claws, Hooves, Feathers and Fins by Glenda Beall and Estelle Rice. 
This book is the perfect gift for an animal lover, dogs, cats, rabbits or horses. You will smile and maybe shed a tear, but it will be a happy tear.

For only $5.99 you can read and see the color pictures of our characters and other members of our family on your Kindle. Kodi, on the cover, was a gorgeous dog and such a sweetheart.
 Let me know how you like it.

Learn more here.

With my Kindle and my IPad, I have everything I need to keep me reading. But I still like the traditional books. You can tell by my bookcases all over my house. One day I hope to read all those books.

I bought another book Sunday. Val Nieman's new poetry book, The Leopard Lady, a Life in Verse.  Can't wait to get into it.

What have you read lately that you recommend?

Self Published book makes NY Times best Seller List

While reading C. Hope Clark's Funds for WRiters newsletter today, I became excited about a conference on her itinerary. As I read about it, I found out it is this weekend, too late for me to attend.
But on the conference website I saw that the keynote speaker was a woman from Nebraska who had written and self published a novel which made the NY Times Best Seller List.

She has sold over 75, 000 copies - all online-  at 99 cents each. She has made lots of money and has refused to publish her second book by a traditional publisher. She also has an agent.
See the sidebar for a link to her story.
