Only Five Days Left!

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that Dance Diaries: Learning Ballroom Dance is free to download on Story Cartel’s website for only five more days!

You may as well download it now before you forget.

Another reminder: if you post a review about the book by June 6, you’ll be entered to win an advanced copy of the next one, Dance Diaries: Ballroom Budgeting! This second installment of the Dance Diaries series includes all of my secrets, tips and tricks to how I afford to dance while living paycheck to paycheck AND paying down debt. AND it comes with a bonus, but I’m not going to tell you what it is yet!

You can post a review of Dance Diaries: Learning Ballroom Dance on the website of your choosing. Here are the links to a few possibilities:

Amazon
Barnes and Noble
Goodreads

Just be sure to copy the URL of your review onto your Story Cartel dashboard so it’s counted in the drawing!

Good luck and happy dancing!

 

Ready, Set, Download

Ok, everyone, Dance Diaries: Learning Ballroom Dance is now available FOR FREE on Story Cartel’s website!

Click here to download your free copy.

Remember, you have the next three weeks to download it and four weeks to submit your review.

BONUS! Everyone who submits a review will be put in a drawing to receive an advanced copy of my next book, Dance Diaries: Ballroom Budgeting. And double bonus: my next book comes with extras. It’s like a transformer book (more than meets the eye).

I know you’re all super excited! Or not, because it’s Monday morning. I understand, I’m still on my first cup of tea myself. But free stuff is still cool, right?

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

I’ve Got Rhythm

I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this before: along with lessons with Teacher, I also take private lessons once a week with Teacher’s friend in exchange for working at a bunch of social dances he ran last year. He is all about social ballroom dancing, so we work on American rhythm dances like rumba, cha cha and east coast swing, plus salsa, samba and occasionally bolero, all with that social focus. There are no specific routines or discussion of technique, it’s all about following and musicality.

Partnering in Ballroom and a Free eBook!

I have two fun and exciting announcements!

First!

An article of mine on partnering in ballroom was just published on danceadvantage.net!  You can read it here: http://www.danceadvantage.net/partnering-in-ballroom/

Second!

I have published my first eBook!  And I’m offering it for FREE!  It’s a compilation of my How to Cope with Loss series. I wanted to make it available to anyone who might need or want it, without requiring a search through old blog posts.  Go to the Other Resources page and click on the image to download it.

In other news, just a few more days until the 31 Day Writing Challenge!  I made a list of topic ideas, but I only got up to 28.  Hopefully inspiration will strike on those three remaining days.  I’m curious to see if making myself write every single day for a month will cause me to burn out on blogging or reach a whole new level of creative flow. We’ll see!  I’m going to do my very best to bring you quality posts each day in October, so hopefully you don’t burn out on my blog either!
