Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since I chatted with you all. Hope everyone is doing great and carrying on with your business. I have been a little under the weather but God came by and energized my spirit again. I'm looking for someone who does website designing for a fair price. My web host that I now have is canceling his duty soon and I want to be able to keep my web site going without any interruptions. God Bless. Thanks in advance!

do audio books really sell? is it worth the time/money you put in for a new author to create an audio book?

I just finished editing the audio version of my book, Stoneheart: The Bronx. What a tedious pain in the butt that was. I started with Audacity first because that program is free but you have to rely on YouTube videos to learn it. So I downloaded Soundbooth CS4 from Adobe. They offer a thirty day free trial. During the 30 days I was able to lay down the entire 360 pages and edit it. Unfortunately, I found a few errors after the first edit, so I ended up shelling out the $199 to own the program. For learning the program, I relied on The program is vast, but I limited my learning to two features: recording and editng. Whew!

To the responsible Person,

This scholarship for moms, who qualify! I take care of my six year old grand-daughter and sends her to school everyday, but I don't want to go back to school after finishing college in 1988. It is my understanding that one must go to school in order to qualify. Correct me if I'm wrong. Many blessings to you!

Hello everybody,

Hope your Labor Day weekend was great. I have an audio book already published by Spoken Books Publisher. The Audio book was created from Growing Up In Mississippi over a year ago. I wish I knew how to put the Audio Book on my website so people could listen to the sample. If you like to listen to the Audio Book please go to and type in my name (Bertha M. Davis) or the title of the book in the search box. My narrator did an excellent job. God bless you all.
