BELL Garden's Growing Internet Presence
BELL Garden is a non-profit "edible schoolyard" affiliated with Bellevue Middle School in Nashville, Tennessee. They were in need of a new website using a content management system in order improve their internet visibility, to post gardening tips, easily update content to highlight achievements, photos of volunteers and to announce new educational opportunities.
The BELL Garden exists to cultivate, guide, and encourage shared community values of healthy living and lifelong learning. They support this mission by providing practical learning opportunities for residents of the community in a setting that promotes physical activity, healthy eating, environmental stewardship, and multi-cultural connections for all generations.
hpdDesign completed a WordPress website for the BELL Garden, using a framework that staff was familiar with and that offered easy to use photo gallery options.

SOLEMN VOW: Chapter One: “Captain Bryson McGann paid little attention to the chilling drizzle. His hazel eyes peered into the distance, centered on the approaching horse-drawn caisson and Kyle Owens casket.”

William Beck has a free gift in tribute to those who have served, and those who have fallen, in defense of our country. You are invited to read his new prequel short story about Bryson McGann, protagonist in the action/adventure book series.
Bryson McGann is sent on a covert mission to rescue a missing U.S. army colonel in Iraq, near the Syrian border. What he uncovers is the first clue exposing a network of powerbrokers responsible for global chaos and the orchestration of 9/11.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays, He’ll be posting links to a new chapter of the story on my website, http://booksbybeck.com. All you have to do is click on the link to go to the latest installment. After the last chapter (10 in all), he’ll be taking the story off the website and making it available as a Kindle book.
The first installment will be posted on Saturday, May 28. Feel free to share this with anyone you think would enjoy reading an exciting, action-packed – and free – short story. Hope you enjoy!

Add Book Marketing Channels with eBooks
Two of the most important factors in having a successful self-published book are promotion and using cost-effective sales channels. Converting your book into eBook formats can let you cast a wider net for potential readers. Although amazon.com has effectively captured the public’s association of eBooks with “Kindle” books (do you say “I need a tissue” or “I need a Kleenex?”), and is a must-do part of any eBook distribution, there are a number of other opportunities for distribution that should be considered. http://www.hpddesign.com/blog/add-book-marketing-channels-ebooks
