Something New For 2015

I have been busy with work, the farm, writing, the grandkids, and all the crafts that I like to do.

This year I have spent time spotlighting authors for Virtual Book Tours.

In 2015, I want to do something new.  I want to take a look at books that no one has seen for a while.

Did you publish a book prior to January 1, 2012?

If so, how is it doing?   Not too many, if any sales these days.

No one wants to buy it.  No one sees it.  It is no longer on the bookshelves.  It is not high on Amazon’s list.

In 2015, I will be creating an online magazine that showcases older books.  This will be a FREE service to authors, promoting your older work.

How can I offer a FREE service like this?

With your help, by spreading the word and me offering “advertising space” in the magazine.

The magazine will be quarterly – March, June, September, December.  It could grow to bi-monthly or even monthly depending on how many books are sent in.

What else will be in the magazine?

  • Book promotion hacks/tips
  • Book marketing hacks/tips
  • Articles pertaining to writing
  • Author Interviews
  • Advertisements
  • And so much more

Review From Reader:

Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul

Myrlande E. Sauveur

Outskirts Press (2013)

ISBN: 9781478713159

Reviewed By Richard R. Blake for Reader Views (11/13)

In her book “Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul,” Myrlande E. Sauveur encourages the reader to “feed your soul as you feed your body every day.” This concept captures the essence of her chapter themes, selected scripture readings, significant life narratives, and meaningful personal prayers.

Each chapter is designed to follow a calendar year with a reading for each day of the month. These monthly chapters are well formatted. Each chapter includes a theme title, a theme verse for the month, a personal illustration with a life application lesson, a prayer, and a verse for reflection and meditation for each day of the month. The chapter ends with two pages for recording personal notes or journal entries throughout the month.

Chapter themes include topics such as: waiting on God, God’s love, God’s faithfulness, our loneliness, controlling anger, and dealing with depression. Answers to the question, “Why Me, Lord?” are considered in light of scriptures dealing with trials and testing.

I found the chapter God’s Plan and Purpose for My Life affirmed by the theme verse Jeremiah 29:11, “I (God) know the plans I have for you…” and by the daily verses that promise instruction, guidance, and protection.

Guest contributor, Daniella B. Pierre summarized her thoughts this way: “God holds you in the palm of His hand. He knows your every struggle, disappointment, heartache, and every unfair situation.” The daily promises that follow offer hope, healing, and cheer in times of all these difficult situations.

“Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul” is excellent as a companion to your regular intake of God’s word in Bible study, devotional reading and mediation. It is also ideal for gift giving for any occasion.

Blanca Beyar, a Promotional Book Tour

Blanca-Beyar-Long-1Q:  Would you say writing chose you or you chose writing?

A:  Writing certainly chose me for sure. Looking back at my childhood, I loved to role-play and make-believe that I was an actress! However, I also learned how to read at a very young age but I never thought that my future would include writing books—especially in the genre of Mind/Body/Spirit.

My passion to write emerged through the guidance of an angel that came into my life when I began to explore spirituality. In a meditation, my angel told me that I needed to begin to write. I laughed at the thought of it because I was never very proficient in writing.  Still, I was so captured by the guidance and love that I had received from this luminous angel that I followed his guidance and began to write articles on angelic communication. I found an internet portal that featured spiritual topics and in a short period of time, realized that writing was one of my soul’s passion!         

Q:  Do you write under a pen name?  If ‘yes’, what is your pen name?

A: I  do not write under a pen name but there have been several articles throughout my writing career that feature my guru name, Lavanya.

Q:  What genre do you write?

A:  My genre of writing is Spirituality and Self-Help. I also enjoy composing articles for writers and the “Writing Life” because it allows me to share my own experiences in writing and also allows me to share advice for writers who are just beginning to harness their passion for composition and expression.    

Q:  What is the title of your current book?

A: My current release is entitled, “Attributes of Mastery.” It is an empowering book that can be read by anyone who has a yearning to live a more spiritual and fulfilling life. The book features 21 attributes of living that can be practiced by anyone and who will discover a whole new way of experiencing life when they apply these simple but vital attributes to their lives.
