They’re Out! Flannel Flowers by the River!

18 Oct

I love to see the Flannel Flowers. Right now they’re in flower, and it’s just the beginning of their season. They’re fussy about where they’ll grow, but fortunately for me they have chosen spots by the river and near the road that we drive along to get to the water. Their simple, daisy-like flowers hold a special charm.

For the photo of these charming plants, please visit my other blog.

Ducks on the River

11 Oct

I guess that the local swimming baths is rather unique in more ways than one, for not only is it uncommonly large, it also attracts many sweet-looking birds. Not least among these are the ducks.These range in size from the large, Pacific Black Duck to the small Chestnut Teals, and in between fall the Australian Wood Ducks and Grey Teals.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Whether you are posting on your own blog or through someone else’s

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

BOOK COVER

Always show the book cover…

TIMING

Always schedule your post to go live about one hour after Your Publisher has actually activated it

i.e., to give YOURSELF time to CHECK it has ACTUALLY been activated.

Most potential readers will NOT call back later to check if it is now active.

They will forget.

You WILL lose Sales…

HOW?

Establish the time to post by comparing YOUR timezone time AND DAY with your Publisher:

AMAZON

use SPT Standard Pacific Time (Seattle, Washington State)

SMASHWORDS

PST PACIFIC STANDARD TIME ZONE IN GREEN

NOTE:

PROVIDE MORE THAN YOUR COUNTRY AMAZON OUTLETS LINKS

I’d recommend you…
