Random Friday: Cake, Kindle Unlimited, Latest Plagiarism, Holidays

I'm writing this the night before my little bit of surgery. You may or may not hear from me again depending on how zonked on pain killers I'll be.

I've been trying to get all my ducks in a row. It really does help you take control of your life to work at least 30 minutes a day on a project until it's completed.

You know the kind of projects I mean--filing, accounting, updating records--all those pesky details we put off.


Here are a few tidbits for your consumption. Leave a comment on any of these with your email addy and win a free book. All commentators will win.

Friday is Cake Day

First, let's talk about what's really important. Cake. I received the recipe for Texas Sheet Cake Cupcakes in my email from Betty Crocker. Yes, Betty and I are email buddies. You've got to try this!

Kindle Unlimited

Feedback from many authors is that their sales have dropped significantly and the "borrows" aren't making up for the downfall.

Readers, have you enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited program? If so, do you find yourself reading more or the same?

Writers, have you enrolled? Has it helped or hurt your sales?

Latest Plagiarism Incident

It's spreading like wildfire through the online writers' groups. Please, before you name the alleged plagiarist, please be aware that there is another woman of the same name who is an upstanding citizen so don't go defaming the name without making sure you identify the true alleged culprit.

Some names are pretty common. My own is one of those. I can't tell you how many Google Alerts I get with my name featured. Lots of obituary notices. *LOL* Also a woman who has my name likes to post inflammatory political statements. I really wish she'd change her name.

Yikes! Holidays Are Coming

I don't know how many shopping days until Christmas, but I do know that it's not enough! Want to give your writer friends a special gift? If you need a gift for a writer--or a promotional item--visit my CafePress shop, WriteWay.

One of the most popular items in my shop is the Writer's Christmas Ornament -- use this direct link, and the price is less than if you search for the item in the CafePress Marketplace. The ornament comes in several shapes. The one shown is snowflake.

WriteWay isn't just for writers. There are plenty of items that appeal to readers.

Takeaway Truth

Okay, now let's all go eat cake.
