A short post to share my excitement at just surpassing the 10,000th visit to my blog site. The support of readers and well-wishers has been amazing and it's been quite a journey for me. When I started this site my hopes and wishes were to become a published novelist. I have reached that goal, but I still have aspirations to gain through my writing. 

To celebrate, I am giving away a copy of "Winter's Captive". If you wish to enter the contest, which is open until Monday, April 21, Noon, please click HERE. This will take you to my Facebook author page where you can private email me. Don't forget to like my page. 

Many thanks to all my readers and supporters, which means so much. Baby, it's just the beginning.

And I will...keep on keeping on writing!

A short post today to pass on some consumer information on a product I believe is a great tool for authors.

Do you jot down notes on pieces of paper in your purse, or in a notebook you carry with you when out and about? Do you prefer to hand write your stories, rather than use a computer? Do you wake up at night with a great idea and wish you had a pen and paper on your bedside table to write it down before you forget.

Then, this product is for you.

I've been meaning to bring this to the attention of fellow writers for awhile. However, my overworked creative mind kept forgetting. This tool for writers is revolutionary.

The product is called the LIVESCRIBE SMARTPEN. The pen contains a chip that saves the text you hand write. You can download the text into your word program and your story is transcribed instantly. That sudden flash of genius you woke up with when jolted awake? Keep the pen on your bedside table and you can use the audio chip in the pen to record your musings. In the morning, transcribe your audio into your computer file and save.

It's so simple and it works. There may be other products in the marketplace. However, this particular one has a great reputation and I've heard good things about it.

Here's the link to Amazon, listing a number of different models and prices. Click HERE.

Just wanted to pass this on to my fellow writers out there. So for those who think it will help them with their writing endeavours, get yourself one and remember ... keep on keeping on writing!
