Here's How We Fared in the Hurricane Last Week!

Here's How We Fared in the Hurricane Last Week!

We had a super fun time riding out Hurricane Hermine! The morning before it rolled in was overcast, windy, and quite cool. So, we all walked to breakfast, and ate outside. It was heavenly! Later, the sky slowly darkened, the wind increased, and big, fat raindrops began to fall. Then, those big, fat raindrops started flying sideways. It was quite a ride and it was beautiful!

14 Paying Faith Markets for Writers By Laura Yeager

As life brings me more trials, I’ll “digest” them and turn them into spiritual articles and essays for others just trying to get through the day on this difficult path we call life.

God willing.

I encourage you to try your hand at writing for God. Examine your life. Read the Bible--or whatever religious guide to which you aspire. Pray about it. I’m sure He will assist you.

Letters and Comments for 09/08/16

Just read all the issues around CreateSpace. I'm new to this business, and was reformatting my book for POD on CreateSpace. In 2015, I pulled up my first book and found, on the Amazon website, my book and author name with a different cover, all distributed throughout Amazon's network from a different account unrelated to me.

Pissed off.....I got no help from their 'legal team' or anyone else.

Wrote to Jeff Bezos regarding copyright infringement, so Amazon pulled my book, but I had to make sure all books were pulled from their distribution. Hard to tell if I got them all. Told Jeff it's ridiculous that they can literally track a lipstick/etc. I purchase from them, but cannot control their book accounts. B....S.....!
