BeBop Garden & Pinterest

Ricki Grady, author of the entertaining book, BEBOP GARDEN has informed me that Amazon is running a two-day promotion. Today and tomorrow, January 24 and 25, 2012, you can download BEBOP GARDEN for FREE!  Just click on the link. Also I recently discovered that you don't need an e-reader to download books. Amazon has a free app you can download onto your computer that works just like an e-reader! So, if you haven't read this awesome, book by a kindred northwest gardener, now's the time. 




On another note, one of the authors of the blog, Writer Unboxed wrote a delightful post on ways authors can use Pinterest for book publicity. Although my book isn't published, I've been "pinning" photos of some of the haunts of my younger years which are written about in my "book." If you click on the link and look at the Hawaii and Oregon boards you'll see some of them. This is a work in progress. I'll let you know when it's finished. (If it ever is. LOL) 

As always,

Good girl Grace. I've never heard of BeBop Garden and find it intriguing.

How is your book going?

All joys,

Sharon

I had no idea you could download books from Amazon to a computer. Silly me, I thought you needed a reader of some sort. Will go over there and see what's available.
I haven't done Pinterest yet... know it is a big time thief. I have enough to keep my from what I need to do....though one of these days......

Thanks for the tip off Grace. Available on this side of the pond too. I got in just in time and my Kindle now has new gardening material for me to peruse. I'm on a waiting list for Pinterest - will pop in to have a look at your 'pinnings' later. Thanks also for your thoughtful birthday greetings xxx

Just because it isn't professionally publish doesn't make it any less of a book. So I say get rid of the quotes :)

I have been noticing your photos on pinterest and now I know what they are from!
I had no idea there was an app to make your computer an e-reader! Silly me!

I've heard Pinterest is fun but I just don't have time. :( But I'll have to check out downloading a book. It looks like a great read. :o)
