Tag Archives: .99 Kindle Countdown

Thank you, Frank

Woo hoo!  A couple days ago, I posted,  Birthday Wishes  which was all about what I wanted for my birthday.  What did I ask for? Well, you could just click on the link and find out, but, basically, I asked for REVIEWS for the books I have written and published.

Then, I created another post, Let’s Get This Party Started offering an eBook version of the first book I ever self-published, at a Kindle Countdown price of .99.

Here is the book, and here is the 5 STAR REVIEW posted on Amazon, by Frank Hubeny

 A Blessing from the Heart – September 28, 2017

 “This is a book of inspirational poems, prayers or blessings. They have a nice sound and they often contain rhyme. Some are acronyms where the first letter of the words spells out the message underlying the other words. The blessings are all positive as good blessings should be.

 The author has other books, maintains a blog and writes at the online The Magic Happens Magazine. So there are other opportunities to read more of her writing

 The ebook is laid out in an interesting way. Unlike a poetry book, which is what I thought this was initially. Each poem is not on it’s own page nor are there titles for the poems individuating them. If they were laid out in that manner, the book would have perhaps three times as many pages in it. These writings are more fluid than isolated poems which makes me think they are not really poems although one might be able to pick them apart like that. So I changed my perspective and experienced them as prayers or meditations that interweave and become one blessing inviting the reader to make even more changes in perspective.”

Thank you, Frank, for your purchase and this lovely review  I am touched that you found a special way to connect with the book AND that you enjoyed enough to share with others via your review.  MOST appreciated.

For those who have yet to experience Perspective it’s all about replacing one thought with another, it will be .99 until Oct 4th. And here is the Direct Link  to get YOURS and where you can go to leave a REVIEW once you have the opportunity!

Let’s Get This Party Started!

I love a good party

We’ve got plenty of yummy food, (today, I’m serving plates of curry veggies over brown rice, dishes of  coconut milk ice cream and drinks all around)  Get grooving to the music of the Beatles (because it’s a Beatles Wednesday)

Happy to have you here. Come on in and mingle with the other party goers!

We are partying in celebration of my approaching birthday. Here is the link to the original post, so you can check that out, while sipping on something wet and wild!

Birthday Wishes

All parties need favors for the guests, so, this week’s favor is the .99 Kindle Countdown Special on my book

Perspective, it’s all about replacing one thought with another  which is the first book I self-published.

I think of it as the love child of my imagination and my innocence!

In this book, I created a home for poetry that longed to be shared, prose that was asking for a chance to be read and photos that knew they had a future!  Laid out in more of an artistic fashion, than a straight forward read, Perspective can be read by opening to any specific page without having to start at the beginning of the book.

Allow me to serve you a sample of the prose, found inside your party favor, this week.

 “The warmth of fall is everywhere.  In the enthusiastic dance of rainbow leaves. In the crisp, crimson crunch of a fresh picked apple. In the ruddy cheeks of exuberant youth. There’s no better time to wrap ourselves in our warmest sweaters, surround ourselves with friends and enjoy the splendor of a crackling fire.”

I chose this verse, as it is in step with the season…

When you  visit My Author Central Page you can see ALL my BOOKS

HEAD HERE, Perspective Kindle for the .99 Kindle Countdown Special through Wednesday, October 4th!

Oh, and thank YOU for leaving a REVIEW!

The party continues next Wednesday, so be sure to return and bring friends!

Birthday Wishes

As most of you don’t know (and why would you????) My birthday is exactly one month from today!  #GoMe

Year after year, people ask me, what it is that I would like for my birthday?  Of course I know they are referring to a gift of some sort and that is so sweet of them to want to do something nice for me to commemorate the occasion. So, this year, I have decided to take to guess work out of it by simply making my wishes known here and now…

I WANT REVIEWS FOR MY BOOKS! 

That’s right.  You can rest assured, I will be delighted, they will surely be the right size AND I will not be exchanging them for something in the kitchen ware department.

For those who already have one (or more) of my books, this is an easy enough gift to provide.  Simply visit  My Author Central Page

where you can click on the book icon and leave the cheery, enthusiastic, and encouraging review!

 For those who have yet to avail themselves of my expansive selection of books (insert visual here)

That same link will allow you to purchase said book (s) and then you can return to leave a REVIEW!  (see what I did there)

Of course, I am going to be making things a bit easier for everyone to enjoy this process as much as I will enjoy seeing the reviews growing. Every Wednesday, beginning September 27th and with the final book deal appearing ON MY BIRTHDAY, October 25th, I shall be offering a Kindle Countdown Deal on a different book. Each book will be available for one full week, at .99.

Be sure to check back here, every Wednesday for the special that week AND then scoot over to Amazon to fill your cart!  Of course you are welcome to purchase the paperback or Kindle versions of any and all of my 9 books, I’d be crushing hard on your forever, for that…  And naturally, a REVIEW would be the sprinkle on the cake of my celebration!

Oh, and for YOU who are cheeky enough to inquire as to “how old are you?”  You can buy and review two different books, thank you very much! 

 Thank you, in advance, for helping me celebrate. It’s always nice to remind my folks that all their hard work was not in vain.

 

Sucha Deal Weekend A Haiku Perspective 2015

This is the book that started it all, A Haiku Perspective 2015 is my very first book of Haiku Poetry.

Not only was I thoroughly enchanted with finding I enjoyed writing haiku, I also found I enjoyed the process of putting haiku poetry books together. So, here in the final weekend of National Poetry Month, I am offering A Haiku Perspective 2015 for that ever exciting, .99 Kindle Countdown price. This deal will run from Friday, April 28th 11:00am EDT through Monday, May 1st 11:00am EDT.

I had a blast choosing the photo for the cover. This is a Bird Fairy that my sister was hired to sculpt. I took a few pictures before she delivered it to its new owner and thought it would make an intriguing cover photo. The responses have varied from wary to delighted.

Giving credit where credit is due, I have to thank fellow blogger/author Ronovan Hester for his weekly haiku challenges. This is what got me started writing haiku. Once I gave in and joined his merry band of participants, I was hooked!  His two-word prompts offered us the opportunity to be creative.  I have to say, I wasn’t always classy:

Think & Fresh

Frozen spinach sucks

When trying to make salads

Think I will buy fresh

  I still participate in those challenges, to perhaps I’ll see you there one day.

 Thank you, for participating in my celebration of National Poetry Month 2017! Thank you for gifting yourself and others A Haiku Perspective 2015 and my other books.

Sucha Deal Weekend A Haiku Perspective 2016

Poetry is something that is in my head 24/7. I think, dream and speak in poetry. Not just any poetry mind you, generally I’m all about haiku!  Last year, I debuted a book of haiku in honor of National Poetry Month, so I figured I would share A Haiku Perspective 2016 this weekend to continue the celebration.  From Friday, April 21st 11:00am EDT through Monday, April 24th 11:00am EDT, you can enjoy a .99 Kindle Countdown deal on this book.

I filled this book with haiku written for blogs posts, contests and challenges.  There is even poetry that only those who have this book have ever seen. One of my favorites is called: Thanks Dad

The phone rang just now

From hundreds of miles away

He just got the book

Loves the duck picture

You know, it just spoke to him

He said, keep writing

 Why this is special, is because he had just gotten his hard copy of PhoKu and was so happy with it that he wanted me to know he was proud.  So, I  wrote a haiku about that call and included it in THIS book.

 I got another phone call when he got his copy of A Haiku Perspective 2016. And he takes the books with him when he goes to town and shows everyone how he inspires poetry.  What a guy…  Thanks, Dad!

 And thank YOU for enjoying my books!  You never know who could be inspired with a copy of A Haiku Perspective 2016, even you!
