Do you have a 3D #bookcover ? If you sell paperbacks, you can make one of these for free with Derek Murphy's online tool. I like to put 3D covers on my blog's sidebar so it's obvious they are books, not just photos. https://www.google.com/search?q=Derek+Murphy+3+D+Cover&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

Do any of you who have #iTunes do me a favor? I haven't been able to download the app to my PC, and I'd like to put a buy link to my #audiobook on my blog. I am using a new app that helps you make pages linking to everywhere your book is available. I'll share info about that soon. Anyway, could anyone find the link and share it with me? Thanks!!!

I'll have some more communication coming soon. There's plenty to do, but I'm just taking it in steps. Must be my phlegmatic side, LOL.

This is for +Melanie Jean Juneau and anyone else who groans when they look at Smashwords' formatting guide. I made my WIP in Scrivener and just compiled it as a mobi for Kindle. I have lots of special formatting, but it looks like it's going to need just a few tweaks to be nicely formatted as an ebook. It looks almost exactly as my draft did in Scrivener. I did not even open Smashwords' guide. To me, this alone is is worth the $40 Scrivener costs.

i have actually gotten a lot of work for me from fiverr (all the little jobs turned into really big jobs). So i'm okay with your telling us about them! I think I'll hold onto your link.Although it seems by this time, after e-formatting 3 books, my husband finally has it down....It was painful (to watch, too!)

A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child is ready for the proofreader. For those of you wondering about using templates by +Joel Friedlander  here is a sample from my introduction. I used the Leadership template. It saved me hours of time and lots of stress.

This post by +Gil Michelini went up yesterday & I forgot to share the link. (Trying to get my WIP to my proofreader by Sat. Morning.) Gil's work schedule is very inspiring for other writers. Check it out and please share.
Time is the great equalizer: we all have the same amount. The difference is how it is spent. This post has suggestions of ways to help you develop your writing skills with the hours you have.

Story
Tagline
Carmelite spirituality, contemplative kids.
Introduction
I am a Catholic wife and mother of four boys, dedicated to prayer and to teaching my children to pray. I am the author of Trusting God with St. Therese, which has 4.9 stars on Amazon. I developed my own homeschooling method to foster a contemplative lifestyle. I blog on that and Carmelite spirituality for adults at Contemplative Homeschool. I also own the Google+ Community Indie Catholic Authors.

I also run Catholic Spirituality Blogs Network and wrote the e-book Five Lessons from the Carmelite Saints That Will Change Your Life. You can download it free for your Kindle or Nook.

I am currently working on a series of books to help your children grow in holiness by focussing on the strengths and weaknesses of their God-given temperaments.
