Spring Celebration Sale and Giveaway

Welcome Spring! The daylight is longer and the breezes warmer as we enter into anticipated Spring weather. Oh I know Spring is a bit temperamental at times. Last year in Michigan March was warmer than April fooling the fruit trees in to blooming early. An unusually cold April came along and froze the blossoms. Farmers had a bad year due to the capricious spring weather. 

I'm looking forward to a wonderful spring full of flowers and foliage and a summer brimming with abundant  fruit and veggies. How about you? 

 To celebrate the arrival of Spring, I'm offering my book for girls, Girls Succeed: Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women at a 25% discount. The price was $3.99, but now is available for  $2.99. 

This e-book about careers includes interviews with fifteen remarkable women who have achieved recognition for accomplishment in their occupations. This diverse group of careers encompasses women in the arts, business, science, medicine, ministry, entertainment, and sports. Stories include women who have stamped out disease, made people laugh, earned Olympic and Paralympic gold medals, crossed the country in the cab of an eighteen wheeler, and many more chapters to inspire and empower girls to reach for their dreams.

Here's what reviewers say about this non-fiction book for girls 9-14 years old.

Review by: Sue Perkins on Dec. 14, 2012 : star star star star star
How many of us have dreams when young which we never realize? The women in this book have all achieved their dreams and are to be applauded for their efforts. All worked hard to get to the level they desired, but some had to work harder than others when life put obstacles in their way. They're not all high flying professional women, their goals range from chef, to minister, to scientist to gold medallist.

This book is well written and very informative. If you have a dream you don't think you'll be able to attain I suggest you have a look at this book. It will certainly give you inspiration for your own goals.

This is a wonderful book. It contains the stories of several women in many walks of life who have pursued their dreams and succeeded in reaching them. Each story starts with the age at which the woman decided what she wanted to be when she grew up, and then tells how she reached her goal. In some instances the women went to college and got one or more degrees in order to pursue their dreams. In other instances they practiced daily at athletics or music. There was even the story of a woman who became a truck driver. Yes—a woman who drives a big rig. I’m pursuing my dream of writing and being published, and even I found it inspiring and empowering. Thanks, Ms. Rose.
