Search Word Pro - Pure Genius Resource for Writers and More!

One of the advantages of networking with others in the industry is to hear about new innovations long before they’re available.

I’ve known and worked with Paul J. Krupin for many years. He owns Direct Contact PR and is one of the top media experts in the business. A while back, he’d bounced an idea off me and sent me a sample of a revolutionary new marketing resource.

I was blown away. It was simple but pure genius.

And now, the series is available for everyone with more titles on the way.

From Paul’s own book, this is how it works:

Click on an icon link. Your results open up for you. Then you go looking for knowledge and ideas you can implement and benefit from, or people you want to contact. This is how this ebook works.
The goal of Search Word Pro is to help you improve your marketing success using the best and most current knowledge available. This is a very special personal tool designed to help you discover powerful and actionable information.

And that is the genius. Each search nets the most recent information. And you don’t have to struggle trying to find the right key words. Not only are there five search options for each topic, there are hundreds, even thousands, of key words and topics in each book. All just one click away. Now you see the potential!

Paul provides details and tips how to use the book to get the most potential. The benefits and possibilities are endless. And it’s not just books to benefit writers - there are health and business-specific titles, too.

Visit the Search Word Pro Website or this page on Amazon to see all of the titles.

I’m still going through the Nonfiction Book Marketing eBook and can’t recommend it enough. Go check out his books now!

The Insecure Writer's Support Group

It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh. Don’t forget to check out the Facebook IWSG, too.

After completing some big projects, including moving and setting up a new website, I’m ready to get back into writing. I pulled out some outlines for some novella length stories and picked one. I already have character sheets for all four of the stories, so now all they need is for me to actually write them. My last fiction book was four years ago, so wish me luck as I dive back into storytelling.

And I want to share something that was posted last week on a List-Serv -

“Amazon is facing a battle with UK publishers as it seeks to secure more advantageous terms in its latest round of contract negotiations.

“The web giant wants the right to print books itself if publishers fail to provide adequate stock, and wants publishers to match any pricing deals it offers to other distributers.”

This was one of the responses:

“If publishers give in to this demand, presumably Amazon will require a copy of the finished publishing file to keep handy. Once Amazon has that, what is to keep Amazon from printing its own copies in-house even when the real publisher has adequate stock?”

Kind of scary when you think about it.

Tryon Palace and Gardens

Since Wednesday is the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, I decided to post something light and fun today.

Recently, Sherry Ellis of Gone Gardening posted about Tryon Palace and Gardens in New Bern. I’ve been there several times, both with family and our local photo club, and taken A LOT of photos. It’s a beautiful place and I’d like to share some images:







This image is one of the stock images for sale at my Spunk On A Stick site. (And thanks to everyone who checked out my new site last week. Transferring my domain name this week and then everything will be set!)

Inspired by any images lately?

Where to Find Royalty Free Music and Brand New Website!

Today. I’m going to send you two places.

First, I am posting at the Insecure Writer’s Support Group with a list of royalty free music sites and what to look for.

The second place I am really excited about! After working on it for weeks, my new website is up and running:



It’s streamlined now - eliminated some unnecessary junk. The stock photo page is snazzy - click on an image to bring up the full version with the title and size, plus you can scroll through all of them. I also have a sample page in the book formatting section.

Both links open in a separate window, so if you could let me know what you think of my new site and visit the IWSG site, I’d appreciate it.
