Calling all indies to...use your free options!

Alright folks! Time to tally up some bumps and bruises gathered while fumbling through the world of *cringe* marketing. Amazon Keywords keywords! One of the best uses of your marketing with Amazon, I've found, is to 1. use the giveaways option for ebooks, as it ends up way cheaper than a Goodreads one 2. read their content they suggest for marketing One such read brought to my attention the importance of keywords! Check and triple check and make good use of them! Have a look in the marketing sections and don't be afraid to use their tools :) Facebook boost posts -great if you want some likes -not so great for sales -very low cost I paid $6 ($3 each) to boost one post about Avalon Dreams, one

Kennel Woes (Take two)

It's taken me a bit to write this, mainly as I dedicated a lot of time to my dogs and also find this hard to talk about. Having dogs, caring for them, raises feelings of guilt when anything goes wrong. Akin to if I had a brother who hurt himself while I was on vacation, I would feel guilty because maybe if I'd been around I could have prevented that. Well, with my dogs, it was a traumatizing experience and it took a lot patience and self control to get back to where we are now. If you've read my blog before, you know I have a deep love of all furry creatures, but dogs have a special place in my heart. I cannot understand humans that hurt them and never will. I eventually hope to get my own k

A trip to the Emerald Isle (Pt 4)

The last highlights of Cork County My second favorite after Killarney: Fota Wildlife park It was amazing seeing the animals so well taken care of, living in their natural habitat and socializing amongst themselves. I am not a big fan of zoos or anything that holds wildlife in confinement, as I believe animals should always be as free as they were born. However, even I had to stare in awe at the huge expanse of land, the care given to them, and the attention towards ensuring their safety. I got to be less than a foot away from kangaroos, a peacock and so much more! Also, the park has these wonderful fact sheets that really give you information on the animal and even their endangerment. It

A trip to the Emerald Isle (Pt 3)

The best highlight of Kerry County Killarney National Park Easily my favorite part of our trip, was when we visited the Killarney national park. Over 25 000 acres of different types of trees, lakes, hiking trails, a waterfall... Wikipedia can explain it better than I: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killarney_National_Park We took a hiking trail and went up to Torc waterfall, then a little bit higher. Very steep climb, but apparently that was nothing because they have a hiking trail called Cardiac! 😅 one wonders why.... We originally wanted to take a boat tour that would bring us by the ring of Kerry, but couldn't find the place! (Later found out it was at Ross castle you get the oppor

In the face of heat...protect your pets!

x-tinymce/html x-tinymce/html Many of you know that pets are dear to my heart, being the proud owner of two large-breed dogs myself. I felt the need to take a break from posting the Ireland pictures in order to speak about something that truly gets to me every summer. If you're reading this and you're in North America, you've probably felt the effects of the heat strokes we've been victims of. I know I have! AC on to the max, windows open at night, fans blasting, nothing really helps. Luckily, towards the end of this week, and as this blog is being published, the temperatures have finally dwindled down to normal. In the face of this, I wanted to make a short post to remind you: heat is no e
