January #WIPjoy Challenge

I’ve been following the January #wipjoy Challenge from Bethany A. Jennings of @SimmeringMind. If you hop over to the Facebook page, or Twitter, you’ll see the ones that I’ve done.

Today was a poem about or featured in your WIP.  Without further adieu, here is a poem about Trial and Triumph (Book 5 in the Lakeville Series)
*fair warning; poetry is not my strength

Pursuit of relationship
Be it family, lover or friend
Lost in the shuffle
Of the daily struggle

Dreams have been pushed aside
Once alive and burning
Due to one
Obsession

Without the realization
He almost loses all
Driven to his knees
To reclaim what was lost
To renew his heart
To dream again
No matter the loss

Restoration
Reconcilliation
A price is paid
A family is
Made stronger
Through adversity

Faith
Shines through the dark
It cleanses and restores
Now
And forever more

Sunnie Revisions DONE and Available!

Oh, how good it feels to finally SAY that! *releasing balloons and confetti* Sunnie’s Rainbow be found HERE. To celebrate, I dropped Seasons Of A Life to $0.99. My wonderful friend, City Chick a.k.a. Donna will be posting a review of Seasons on her blog, as well as a mini interview. She asks the most fun questions! I will link to her when it’s up.

Work on the next book is coming along well. I’m so pleased that I seem to have gotten over whatever mental block I had regarding formatting and such. I keep saying turning 50 is going to be my banner year. Keep an eye on the blog and Facebook page. I’ll be announcing pre-orders for Restoration soon, and a special for those of you who have the original books and would like the revisions. No, I’m not saying anything just yet. 😉

Finally, I hope you like the revised blog. I thought it needed a cleaner, more streamlined look. Next is the website. But that requires help, so I need to check with Heidi. *giggle* Hey, I can only be fabulous in so many areas.

Till next time, Be Blessed!

Barb

Happy Labor Day! Fill Your Kindle!

Well, maybe not fill, but you can load two books onto it!

Seasons Of A Life goes on promo for 48 hours starting TODAY! Sept 1!

Sunnie’s Rainbow follows close behind on Sept 2!

Now, friends, I am going to ask a few favors. Remember, I’m asking because I need to do all this promotional stuff myself instead of having a marketing manager.

~ Please link the free promo on any social media you participate in: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.

~ There are book covers and trailers on my Pinterest account to repin; each book has it’s own board

~ PLEASE download, even if you have a copy. It helps the ranking. Like it on Amazon (small button next to the title)

~ Review it if possible. Reviews help get the word out

~ Like the Lakeville Facebook page, my Amazon author page, my Pinterest boards, follow me on Twitter…you know, all that stuff (Goodreads, too!)

Thank you to all who do the little extra things to spread the word about Lakeville.

Have a terrific weekend!

Blessings

Barbara

I am very sorry about the confusion.
