Children's book tour in New England
If you have a children's book and would like to set up a book tour in the New England states, check out this interactive map on the New England Independent Booksellers Association website (which allows authors and readers to connect to almost 50 independent bookstores which sell children's books):

This is a really neat resource for people living in New England or planning to visit.

Viewzi search engine
Viewzi is a neat search engine that allows you to search topics and view the results from many different viewpoints.

How to set up a low-cost membership website in two hours or less!
My friend Daniel Hall has just put together a set of four video tutorials that show you how to set up a membership website using a WordPress blog and a few simple plug-ins. In the videos, he shows you everything you need to know to create the website in a couple of hours.

His tutorial program only costs $19.95 for a quick download from ClickBank:

Compare that cost to the cost of creating a membership website using MemberGate. Yes, it has all the bells and whistles but it also costs from $4000 to over $15,000, depending on the bells and whistles.

Compare that to Amember membership software, which costs around $300. Not bad that. But it's clunky with a steep learning curve.

With Daniel's simple WordPress system, you can start accepting payments right away using PayPal (or your own shopping cart), email members from within the membership site, see which members are on the site at any time, and offer exclusive member content at different paying levels. Included with the course is an ongoing newsletter that offers WordPress tips, tricks, and insider details for making a WordPress membership website incredibly profitable. You can sign up for the free newsletter at: http://bookexpert.
