This Blog Post Is A Writing “Event”

00000EventplanningI just heard, for the umpteenth time, this annoying commercial telling you to call them if you recently experienced a “bleeding event.”

The other day I heard somebody on the Weather Channel talking about a “rain event.”

Is it just me?  Am I the only one who missed the memo on the new use for the word “event?”  What ever happened to just “bleeding” and “raining?”

I’m just (having a) saying (event).

Give Kindle Books for Christmas! (Even If They Don’t Have One!)

CLICK PICTURE TO GO TO MY BOOKS ON AMAZON!

CLICK PICTURE TO GO TO MY BOOKS ON AMAZON!

Did you know you can give a digital Kindle book as a gift, even if the person doesn’t have a Kindle? On the right side of each kindle book page there is a “Give as a Gift” button. Click that.  On the next page enter the person’s email address. They will get an email with the link they need to accept the book.

If they already have the book (or want something different), they have the option to select a gift card instead.

For those without a Kindle Amazon has free software, “Kindle for PC,” which is a free application that lets you read Kindle books on your Windows-based computer–no Kindle required.  There is also a free app for Kindle on your smart phone.

A quick, easy way to complete your Christmas shopping! amzn.to/1aCC4Mx

Also, you can order the paperback edition of any of my books by clicking “Buy autographed books online” above.  Just tell me the name of the recipient.
