Spotlight of the month! I am happy to say that what started as motivational sessions to help Carol Harkavy publish her memoir has turned into an amazing (now three year) friendship between us! This month, I would like to showcase Carol’s book, Rosie and Me, and applaud her for all her hard work. Rosie and Me is a Jewish memoir about the relationship between Carol and her mother. If you want to laugh,cry, and smile, this heartfelt story is for you.¬† I truly enjoyed helping Carol fulfill her dream of writing this book, and I wish her continued success with it.¬† Click here to read more about Rosie and Me!¬†

Talk-to-write-Dictation Apps and Websites

On the go or don’t feel like typing? Use dictation apps. You can use the following sites to talk (all you need is a built in or plug in microphone), and it will write your words for you. (Your very own personal assistant!)

https://speechnotes.co/ (I use this one a lot!)

Google Docs

*I will add new as I find them.*

Creating your Book Cover:

  • Make your “rough draft” book cover with canva.com, a free (and paid if you choose) site where you can make social media posts, banners, posters, invitations, and yep, book covers!
  • Sign up for KDP (Kindle Publishing Platform) and launch their Cover Creator. You will be able to create a cover right there and not have to publish it just yet!
  • Sign up for Createspace (An Indpendent Publishing Platform), and launch their Cover Creator (very similar to Kindle as they are both owned by Amazon).
  • Use Adobe Photohop.
  • You can even use Microsoft Word to create covers.
  • Draw one!

MUSIC

You can use any music site or music you have to write your books, but I prefer Pandora. It’s free (you have to listen to ads) or paid (no ads, more concentration…), and for the wide range of music one may need to write his book, this is the perfect site.

The Power of Music and frequency: While I did not mention this idea in my book, I have recently been studying a lot about sound and the impact on the body. We can use a certain frequencies of music to stimulate creativity. I’ve included a YouTube video made by You Are Creators. They also have specialized videos of the 432 Hz ¬†and 528 Hz frequency music both with affirmations and without it.
