Beautiful waterfalls #BeautyBreak
Waterfalls - Plitvice Lakes, Croatia National Park.
Will this ever-evolving cascades and national park be part of your bucket list?

Plitvice Lakes is among the top 20 most beautiful lakes in the world. Located in Croatia, on the country’s main highway from Zagreb to Split, the national park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 emerald-hued lakes in succession, connected by photogenic waterfalls. Plitvice is not only the oldest national park in Southeast Europe, it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
Founded in 1949, Plitvice Lakes National Park contains a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These have been formed by processes typical of karst landscapes such as the deposition of travertine barriers, creating natural dams.

There are 16 interlinked lakes between Mala Kapela Mountain and Pljesevica Mountain. The lake system is divided into the upper and lower lakes: the upper lakes lie in a dolomite valley and are surrounded by thick forests and interlinked by numerous waterfalls; the lower lakes, smaller and shallower, lie on the limestone bedrock and are surrounded only by sparse underbrush. The upper lakes are separated by dolomite barriers, which grow with the formation of travertine, forming thus travertine barriers. Travertine is mostly formed on the spots where water falls from an elevation, by the incrustation of algae and moss with calcium carbonate. The lower lakes were formed by crumbling and caving-in of the vaults above subterranean cavities through which water of the upper lakes disappeared.

Book Excerpt of the New Young Adult Urban Fantasy Genesis by +Devin O'Branagan 

This is an exciting book in the Legend of Glory series, and IMHO the best so far! I gave Genesis a 5 star review on Amazon. Read a nice juicy excerpt from when Glory, our pregnant hero, is kidnapped.

Great Visual Marketing Tips

SO much of marketing is visual these days. Here are some tips to help your content pop #ontentMarketing  
How to Use Visual Marketing to Leave Your Competition in the Dust
Why create a visual brand?

A solid visual brand ties all of your content together across social media platforms and helps people recognize your posts. One of the highest compliments I get on social media is when people say “I saw a beautiful graphic and immediately knew that it was yours so I had to read it.” Of course your great graphics need to lead to solid content, the visuals are only a piece of your plan.

That’s WHY you spend the time to create a visual style.

It took me a long time to nail down the pieces of my current visual style. I started with a Pinterest board and pinned elements as I saw them and knew that I’d want to find them later to include. I loved the big circles on this blog design and feel madly in love with the vintage typewriter image on my home page. I kept adding little tiny pieces until I was ready to work on a total rebranding for my blog and social media.

This new design is 100% me and what I love. It makes me happy to create designs that coordinate with it and I feel people get a great sense of who I am.

Collect visual pieces that you love and put them all together to create something you’ll love too!

What is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly System?

The butterfly begins life in a lowly state, as do we all. The transformation through which a butterfly goes does not CHANGE her nature. The transformation calls forth the true essence of what has been inside all the time so that she can fly free and live her true purpose in life.

As I worked with visionary entrepreneurs, I developed a system that is easy, playful, and full of life. This is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly Author Success System, based on that gorgeous fluttering creature of light, air and transformation.

Each letter of #bliss is a part of the butterfly. The B is the body, and the rest of the letters represent wings.

When you are rooted in your purpose and all aspects of your author journey are healthy and harmonious, your BLISS Butterfly will fly free.

When your butterfly is missing parts, you'll findit hard to turn your dreams into a reality.
  • B is for BEING on purpose. - looking inside to find your purpose 
  • L is for LIVING and leaving your LEGACY - writing your message.
  • I is for IMPRINTING your message into people's hearts and lives.- publishing (manifesting your message)
  • S is for SHARING your message with those who desire and need it - that's what book marketing really is!
  • S is for SERVING your audience.well - prospering you, your loved ones, and your beloved causes. The more you SERVE your audience, the more prosperity you have to spread! 

Random Facts about Me

Before getting into the "meat" of this profile, I thought you might like to know 3 random facts about me so you have a sense of who I am.

1) When I was young, my dad worked as a Master of Ceremonies at a club He got home very late, and I would go lie on the floor just inside the door so he could be the prince 5o awake Sleeping Beauty from the evil spell.

2)  I used to write Doctor Who fan fiction when I was in  high school.

3) As a child, I could never watch the 3 Stooges, because their violence toward each other made me cry. I still find aggression upsetting.

2 Things I LOVE to do that affect YOU!*

My favorite things to do are writing fiction and helping visionary, life-changing individuals turn their purpose and passion into published books.

As for fiction, I adore writing visionary fiction stories that stick with you long after you have finished reading. And be careful what you say and do, because I'm a keen observer and an attentive eavesdropper! You just might end up as a villain in my next novel!

Helping authors is such fun! I love hanging out with people who love stories and want to make a difference.

Who am I and how have I earned the right to guide you?

Short bio:

I am an author, speaker and mentor living in rural Missouri with my 2 cats inside and a couple of guinea hens outside. 
A contributor in 24 books, I am the author of several books of my own, including #1 Bestseller, Mover and Shaker, The Peace SeedPersonal and Global Transformation through StorytellingThe Instant VIP,  Instant Author Formula: 6 Simple Methods for How to Write a Book FAST!, My fiction books include, A Tasty Morsel and The Assassin and the Prince.

Here is what some of my students & I have accomplished with the help of the BLISS System:
  • +Lasse Rouhiainen  becae an international #1 b est selling author within hours of releasing his first book, Smart Social Media. He achieved equaolly rapid success with the Spanish version of this book as well as the English and Spanish versions of 101 Video marketing Tips and Strategies for Small Businesses. His books are still strong sellers months later.
  • +Chris Downs reached #1 bestseller status in just 18 hours after his book How to Grow Great Heirloom Tomatoes hit Kindle. This book is a consistent top seller well over a year after release, which is not all that easy to do today... unless you have the right systems.
  • Jeremy Boone made 1 phone call that created 15,000 book sales while I was his mentor.
  • Amazon put my fiction book The Assassin and the Prince as the headline book in a customer mailer to fantasy fiction fans.
  • My and my students' books hit bestseller within anywhere from 2 hours to 10 days of publication.
When you work with any of my programs or with me as your mentor you start by tapping into the true power behind your book. Everything you do goes back to your core message. Then, as  you write, publish, share and serve, you provide the perfect solutions and stories that your ideal readers CRAVE.
