Readers of the #HiddenTrove

Hello to all of my readers! Great to see you again. Well, it's great to know that you're checking in again.

I wanted to let you know that I'm part of a lovely little group on Facebook and we have a group for our readers/fans to interact with us! All you have to do is join Readers of The Hidden Trove.

Guess what!!!! 

I get to have my week of activities starting Monday (October 10, 2016). Since I have so many fans that check up on me here, I thought maybe some of you would like to join in the fun there too.

Monday will be a running story that group members can add to... three words at a time.

Tuesday I'll be talking about some of my favorite childhood books! Join in the discussion that will start after lunch (east coast USA time).

Wednesday I have a special treat in store. In a mini sample of how my ShortBooks by Snow Flower are created, I'll be doing quickies. These will be around 500 words long and I will base them on only FOUR questions!!!! These will be limited due to needing time to write. I'm estimating 30-45 minutes to write each with a few minutes in between to rest my fingers and feed my tummy.

Thursday I'll have teasers and testimonials of books I've already written.

Friday will be FABULOUS FUN! And a bit of a challenge for everyone...

Find fun finishing favorite fairy-tales filled forever from fabulous fans. Use unusually unexpected utterances until unable. Pick particular pronouncements pending perfect purveyors’ parvenus. (In other words, write a sentence that helps create/add to the story, but you can only use words that begin with the same first letter in each sentence! No limit on sentence length, but it must use the words correctly.)

So, stop by. Join the group. Have fun. Meet other great authors. Interact with me! I'm looking forward to meeting you there!

What Do We Want? BOOKS! When Do We Want Them?...

...Now and for always.

Books have served use for many reasons over the years. They provide educate us, entertain us, provide an outlet for therapy, help us connect with others, help us share our good times and bad... and help us escape.

Many people say they don't like to read. I find this an extremely sad commentary. However, when I dig a little deeper, I often uncover the truth of the matter to be something else... People just have a hard time finding a book they like.

We have such a variety of genres and so many authors out there, but how do we find a book that we are sure will be about what we like? As one possible solution, I came up with ShortBooks by Snow Flower. These books are created based on 12 questions about your loved one.

I want their new favorite book to be the one made specifically for them by including their favorite elements and blending them into a unique and new story.

"their new favorite book... made specifically for them"

Ordering is simple. An invoice will follow and the work will begin. Keep in mind the time it takes to make your special ShortBook when ordering. You'll receive a paperback edition in ShortBook time.

Check out the ShortBooks by Snow Flower that already exist on my home website. And if you're interested in helping me get my business off the ground, you can donate to my ad campaign here.

A Call For Assistance

Hello dear readers. I would not be where I am without you. I'm working on taking my writing to the next level. I want to go from a hobby that I love to a business that I love. To do this, I'm asking for your assistance.

I have a great opportunity to advertise on a popular, local, talk radio show. The listeners are estimated around 50,000 and it is conservatively estimated that I cold reach at least 10% of these listeners and convert them to customers for my ShortBooks by Snow Flower.

The only thing holding me back is the cost of the advertising fees. Therefore, I'm turning to you for assistance. I'm traveling along my path and climbing my mountain. To help me along the way, I've set up a GoFundMe page.

Please help with what you can and share when you do so that others will know about my goals. I hope to give away a lot of rewards with the contributions.

This is a huge step for me and I'll need some writers to join me also. If you'd like more information about the writing opportunities, email me.

I want your new favorite book to be the one I make for you.
