Is Fall The Best Time for Finding True Love? By Dr. Diana Kirschner Summer’s fading away can lead to a dip in your mood. When it turns cloudy and the air is cooler it may be a bit of a let down when you realize that winter and the holidays are just ahead. But there is also good news when the weather turns.

CONTESTS: Awards Set Your Book Apart But Ya Gotta Enter Contests to Get Them By Carolyn Howard-Johnson Excerpted from the new edition of the Frugal Book Promoter I pity the poor reader these days. Reviews can’t be relied on for unbiased opinions, so a reader may have trouble telling which book is most likely to set her heart a’ beating. As she shops, she often turns to the blurbs or endorsements on the back of the book. She may read a few of the first pages. But a book that has won a contest for book awards from organizations like Jeff Keene’s USA Book News award (http://usabooknews.com)... Read More
