Early Bird Ticket ($204) to BlogHer 13....I can't go...very sad....have to sell my ticket!

I recently discovered my husband has been cheating on me.  While I'm getting stronger I just don't have it in me and at this time I just want to just be home with my kids and friends.  That means I have my Early Bird Ticket to sell back to anyone that wants it!!!  I also have a room at the Sheraton I'm surrendering too at the great rate if you want to take that over too.  But first I have to sell my ticket.

According to Hooters Facts, 32% of Hooters management is female. Plus, they’ve donated $2 million to the V Foundation for Cancer Research in honor of “former Hooters Calendar Girl and manager, Kelly Jo Dowd, who passed away from the disease in 2006.” ...more

I watched that "Undercover Boss" too... and it really didn't improve my opinion of Hooters. ... more

Using Social Media to Sell a Self-Published Book

The manuscript was barely even done before it was finished, as they say. I did manage to get an agent finally, and she sent it out to all the major publishers. Everyone had good things to say about my writing, but no one was sold on the novel. Eventually the agent gave up, advising me to leave this book behind and start on another one. Frankly, by this time the concept of starting all over was out of the question. ...more

This rocks. Thanks for sharing. :) People think that if you get an agent, you've won the ... more
