I am Ecstatic!


Hello My Friends,

goodmorning coffee
I woke up drained, ever have a morning like that? I dragged myself out of bed and half asleep  I did my morning routine wishing I could go back to bed. When I went to make my most favored beverage, yep you guessed it – Coffee! I was pleasantly surprised to find a package waiting for me one day earlier than I expected!

I’m ecstatic I got the rest of my (self created) Author and A Novel Life stuff after months of waiting. The box includes: Stationary, Business cards, Thank you notes and so much more. Woot! Those you will only see in person or via the mail. As for pictures of what I do want to show off you can look to my Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram accounts…

myset

Here is the set for: A Novel Life

I will be selling The 12oz cup, the notebook, the bag, and the flash-drive separately or as a set. You can purchase them in person, by order and at events. There is so much more I may offer in the future like more coffee cups, jewelry, and clothing. If you’re interested in any of the stuff let me know.

Again I’m so excited, I feel like things are finally coming together nicely! What a nice surprise to wake up to! Yes I’m still working on the books but I feel starting a line of products will help me add to packages and giveaways in the future. I’m thrilled! I can’t wait to show this stuff off in person! Where should my next event be? Preferably somewhere indoors in this heat… 😛 Right!!! 

Ps.  Face Book page is at 72 likes, Woot! Anyone within the first 200 likes will get a free book or a free gift of one of my new products.

To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?


Hello Dear friends,

I ask you a question…. To Scrivener or Not to Scrivener?

Scriver

It is a writing program I had a long time ago  and  it has changed since then. I Think it could be a great asset  better then  most out there… Hmmm.   I just downloaded this file for the trial. thought you may like it too watch the video then decide its 40$ to buy but it may be very handy for you. at the end of this video he says their is a 20% off coupon but I haven’t got that far yet. I am half way done  I am following text description and watching the video. I had the old version on my old computer and forgot what it was called till last week when I was talking to a friend and fellow Novelist. I have done a bit of research on it and its a little like “Ywrite5” which is free but much more… Just watch the video and decide if this is for you. It is pricey but I feel it is well with it my dear writer friends… I  had a house full of people but I will be testing it out this week  and will be able to fully to decide… I am  wondering what you  use if you write…   I think this will come in handy with my fictions. Especially with organizations… I get stuck often because I keep everything in one folder  for each story  and some times that can be overwhelming and I get tired of going back and forth. So I want a handy tool where I can keep my mess and make it neat. I may not have the most organized house but when it comes to writing and  my projects I am very organized and picky. I have to say the video and images made me expected something a little more high-tech  then what I downloaded. Possibly the trial is 1.o but the  the video is 2.0…. I have to look deeper into that when I am more awake….

Here are some links:
*35 min overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DthBJhBrYs
*1 hour and 30 Min: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLXjMLEZ00E
Wkiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrivener_(software)
You can get the free trial and buy it here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php

After doing some research I found out why my Scrivener looks different in the videos. I knew it was a mac, and I had my guess they were using 2.0 and I had 1.0 well… I was right….  There is definitely a 20.0 But only for mac users….. So I will be waiting to buy… That’s to much money to put out twice… I’m disappointed…. Oh well….

scriver..

 

‪God bless you today and always!

My First Public Appearance


Woot ~ I did it!

After two moths of planing and about $400.00 I had my first public appearance at a Spring Festival in Washington stare May 29 – May 31! The whole thing was a roller coaster ride of emotions. about a year ago I made he decision I would have a booth at the local festivals during the 2015 summer. I have a local friend Who just started her own business Selling ‘Clever Container’ products. https://www.facebook.com/JennifersCleverTreasures We decided to share a booth together. We dd our research and plans and before we knew it the summer had snuck up on us! Which split the registration and insurance fees. It was a lot more work then I expected it to be. Not only was I getting my stuff ready I was also her Business Consultant. ( My consulting page: https://www.facebook.com/A.Novel.Life )

Come Find Us at Spring Fest

I helped her get started setting up her page, creating her labels, Creating her Banner and more. When I was done with her stuff I realized how much I had to do still. Buying the books, a Banner Business Cards, Magnets, Demo products, Things to sell at the fest besides books to draw attention and of course we needed an Event Shelter. I bought a nice Yellow 12×12 $299.00 Colman for sale for $99.00.

My Event Shelter

 

When all that was settled we passed out fliers with in the county and handed out more then 50 businesses cards each. Honestly that was more then I expected to. Since I was going for it I decoded I wanted to raise awareness and collect donations for #ACHA and #MendedLittleHearts  Because I am 1 out of 11o born with a heart defect.

When The day finally came to set up we were freaking out nervous! We decided to go early despite peoples suggestions which was a great thing because we got to choose our booth location at the Festival! With two separate businesses She took one side and I took the other but before we could set up our tables we needed to set up the tent. It isn’t a quick popup (which wold be a great Idea) When we first opened the tent bag We were surprised at how many poles and parts there were and we became over whelmed… Thank God my sister Amanda and her Husband were with us she is great at reading instructions. When we got it half way set up it looked like it wasn’t going to be taller then 3ft.. We started to panic… Jennifer called a local store to see if they had a 10×10 for sale…She was about to go get it with my brother-in-law when Amanda and I decided to keep setting up the tent just to be sure…. To out surprise and relief…… We gained the height we needed it was about 5’11 on the inside but it had lower sides to keep the sun out. Extremely pleased and tears and broken wallets averted we began to set up out sides of the booths. ^_^  All in all set up took about 4 hours, we were so glad we had decided to come early. We had a few issues with how to tie the banners and arrange the tables, once that was settled it all fell into place.

It was a high heat weekend and our helpers canceled due to the heat and illness so It was just her with her kids and I there for the three days. We decided to leave the big stuff but to take our important stuff home at night because of the stories we heard about thievery. And we used used every mussel we had doing so every morning and night. It took us about an hour set up and tear down time and by the last night we felt like pro’s. We made sure to come early and to stay late so we got great parking spots for he loading and unloading. But all in all despite the heat and sore mussels it was I think a great success. Jennifer who had a lot of great products was able to get the word out for future home parties. Due to the extreme heat There were not many people at the event as they had hoped for.. All the booths said they suffered costs due to the lack of people.

I truly am glad I did this I leaned a lot and I feel like I took the next step getting the word out about my books. I sold more then I thought and I met some really interesting people. I do have some tips tho  if you are planning on doing your own event:

*One -Make sure you limit how much you will bring – less really is more. If you have to many things people won’t know what to look at first and  your tables could look over crowded. Pulse your mussels will thank you later. One of the Booths near us was complaining  about how little he sold and he kept trying to pawn off stuff to us.

*Two – Have a idea what you want your booth to look like so when set up time comes you aren’t panicking. Three make sure you come early no matter what they say. First come first serve is most event’s motto. We had quite a few people people upset because they came late and didn’t get to put their tents where they wanted.  People were walking though the event before moat booths were set up we made most our sales in the mornings and evenings.

*Three – Know the location where you will be, and prep what you may need such as: Bandaids, water, food,  food money, sun block, tape scissors, a coat if indoors,  etc.

*Four and most important You have to talk to the people walking by, some will just pretend they don’t see you but others  would have passed by if i had not said Hi. Don’t be a robot be yourself smile and be friendly.  I don’t want to push my book on anyone It is quite personal but when I got over being shy (which is not the usually me)  and I actually started talking to people I started getting more people. Be careful not to miss people  who want to buy something tho because you talking to other people make sure you say Hi to everyone.

*Five Be – friend your tent neighbors. We were so lucky to be nest to some really nice guys, one a tent from Dish Network, and there was  a Guy from Final Fight Radio. Which was nice because us bring to ladies in a crowed there were times when we needed them.  Like when the drunk  homeless guy wouldn’t leave.  Or our last night when we had only half the help we had when we set up. We all   helped each other out. The last thing you want at the event is enemies.

*Six- Don’t forget tables and Chairs… We shared the  extra chairs we had with a neighbor booth.

*Seven- DO NOT Bring anything you cannot  do alone. If its just you keep it super simple for set up and tear down. There were only about three tents with ony one person. But like I said you befriend others they will help you out most likely.

Don’t give up on your dreams no matter how long it takes you!  You are awesome! That’s all I have to say other then I wish you could have been there if you weren’t and to those of you who were and who bought something – Thank you so much for coming it was great seeing you!

Please don’t forget to like my Author page on face book. I will be giving away a free book  or prize if you already have the book to someone out of my first 200 likes. https://www.facebook.com/AmyJaneSandberg.Novelist

What is our Worth….


Let me ask you – How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose and meaning? How often do you question what your life is worth? To many people don’t see their own worth…. My aunt as an example. She was a: kind, smart, talented, caring, and fun actress who touched so many people ones she knew and didn’t ever meet. Sadly she never grasped her worth. She was so hard on herself, She would say I wish I could do better or was better. She was a wonderful woman who brought joy to so many. she touched so many lives in such great ways… Yet she didn’t value herself much.

We all live different lives, we all are unique individuals and we all have impact on others. It could be in our: local community; an online community – games, forums,chat-rooms, Facebook, YouTube instagram twitter, work; school; church; family; etc… Anytime you talk to someone else you are effecting or affecting their lives and day in some way. Do you make people smile? Or do you tear people down.. But….. He/she treats me like…… That doesn’t matter your not measuring their worth, you are measuring ours… We have need to take responsibly and be accountable how we treat others. You want to know what your worth is? Look at how you treat others..

We may say: I am who I am? I just want to be myself why do I have to be nice… The bible say treat others as you want to be treated. (Luke6:31)  Even if you don’t believe in the Bible or God, it is a good rule to live by. So let me ask you – How do you want others to treat you? Sadly others may not threat you kind and there are some who will never treat you the way you wish they would… But that doesn’t affect your Value! So what if there is one person who doesn’t appreciate you… If you see it or not there are people who you touch.

Lets talk about our appearance next. Are we what society says is: overweight, thin, sexy, tall, short, beautiful, handsome, homely, athletic, etc? What else do they say about us? Wait!!!!!!!! That’s labeling!!! We may fit into one of those categories but that does not define our worth! Those labels can act as boosters or most common as restraints. We tie ourselves down by what others say we are or what we can do. We need to stop doing that. Because let me tell you Your worth is un-measurable, your value is priceless!

It doesn’t matter what you do, how you or how you look. Only you an decide your importance, our value, our worth. We are invaluable, Priceless, irreplaceable, precious, incomparable, unequaled.

I challenge you to do as I am doing: Tell yourself you are important, you are beautiful, handsome, sexy, and awesome! Tell yourself you can succeed and that you wont give up on whatever you are reaching for. DO it as often as you need to and you will start to be happier. We all get emotional and have down days but its just a moment in time, and it will pass. Stay strong and don’t be afraid to talk to others when you need encouragement and support. You have purpose and meaning. No one can be  better you, you are un-matched.

I love ya – don’t forget you are awesome!!!

Hurry Read Quick!!!


Hello! ^_^     (Happy smile)

  How are you my  dear readers? Just jump right in….   So I told you  last time I wrote  that I was working on preparing “God Supplies and Miracles Still Happen” for Global Publishing… Well I  finally  did it!!! I prepared two  paper backs  books 38 pages each, and one e-book..  I did away with the coil bound version.. I know  a lot pf people liked it. However the pages got caught and tore to easy… Out of the two types I had before it was the worst quality… But  for peopel who like larger font, This i created  an 8.×5    I ordered that and the much improved  6×9.  I had before… They looked awesome! Other then some formatting errors and  small  typos… All in which I fixed and have now updated…  They rocked! I was super pleased with both!  I am so so picky….. But – This will be the final updates…  

    ~~~~And look ~~~~

congrats  book

Here is the e-mail they sent me about the books… Now- all I have to do is click yes, and then It is a matter of  weeks,  till I find out they say yes.. (I am standing in Faith they will)  I followed all the rules and requirements.  I am quite sacred actually….  When this goes through   anyone who wants, will have a little insight into my personal life and walk of faith.. It makes me more scared and excited to finish the main book which I have been working on again.  The e-book could be approved any day now, tho I think the print books look way better.. I am excited!

Also There happens to  be a book sale!!!
