If you have to wear glasses...
Whether the A/C is too cold or you're in the bitterness of winter, these are amazing for keeping you warm without compromising the use of your digits. I own four pair and use them ALL the time. They're the perfect gift for the writers in your life. Or for you. I mean, it's hard to turn the pages of a book if you're wearing mittens.
More to come....
You know how some people have weird/fun things in their office? Knick-knacks, organization hacks, that one reference book you wish you'd seen before... I have a ton of that kind of stuff. Things that bring me joy, things that are super functional, stuff that suits my personal aesthetic. I thought I'd share some of my favorite odds and ends in a series of posts about office supplies.
And some of you are just like me. I know it. Where the very idea of walking into a stationary shop or office supply store makes you giddy. :-D So prepare yourself.
Twice a year I put my paperbacks on sale in the US and Canada (those are the only markets where it's easy to figure out what constitutes a good sale price). THIS week is the first time in 2020 there will be a sale. Next time, it will be just before Christmas. That means if you just can't wait to get your hands on some Sally Britton paperbacks, and you're counting your pennies, NOW is the time!
Anyone who purchases copies this week may forward their receipt to my assistant, and we will mail you signed book plates!
Find the Paperback Sale HERE. Full price and sale price listed. Email my assistant HERE.
I Mean. It Can't Be That Great.
I tried to put off using it myself. I really did. I might be a Millenial, but that doesn't mean I have to embrace each and every new technology at once. But I had been listening to Amazon Prime Music for a while, through my computer and an app on my phone. It was helping me write, I found, to attach music to chapters and characters.
So one day, I said, "Alexa, open my playlist for Christian and Rebecca."
And my playlist HAPPENED. Still. Not all that awesome. I made the playlist myself. So then I said, "Alexa, play music I might like." And wow, did she! Then as I enjoyed a song, I'd interrupt. "Alexa, what's the name of this song? Alexa, add it to my playlist. Alexa, play more songs by this artist."
We love our Prime Music membership. (We're always listening to it in the house, car, exercising, working, etc.) The speaker on the Echo Dot is incredible. We can turn up the music and dance, turn it down really low to avoid bothering people in the next room and STILL get great sound quality, AND I can even plug in my headphones at my desk when I'm really trying to work in the dead of night.
Let's not forget the homework help and educational aspect of this nifty device. We can check math problems (after doing the work ourselves) and ask interesting questions such as "who was the twenty-third president?" and "can cats see in the dark?" My kids also play a lot of the trivia and choose-your-own-adventure games. Then we went all in and got "smart" light bulbs. It's a husband thing, in our house. Now he can just tell a device to turn off the lights rather than get out of bed once he's all cozy.
Did You Know You Can Get Sally's Books on Audible?
I write clean and sweet Historical Romance Novels, I live in the desert, I'm a mom of four, madly in love with my husband, and I love to read!
