To celebrate, this week I’m sharing posts from the authors about business related things.
Today’s topic is:
If you could be present at any merger or business reveal from the past, what would it have been?
I’ve been to Hershey, Pennsylvania a couple times and I confess, I’ve tried to place myself there when the chocolate factory started. Can you imagine?
I would have loved to have been in on the first personal computer reveal. Back in the mid-seventies, my best friend’s dad designed a gaming computer and we played chess on it. Not sure who he worked for, but he was instrumental in the pc revolution according to her.
Oh…I don’t know…maybe Coca-Cola? Does that mean I get stock options?
Project Gutenberg was started in 1971 by Michael Hart at the University of Illinois with the aim of establishing an electronic public library of 10,000 books. It would’ve been amazing to see the concept being explored at this early stage.
The highly successful merger of Disney/Pixar would be fun! Of course they are always a lot of work, but it would be interesting to see what they did right to make this such a successful venture.
Man, if I could have bought a few shares of Microsoft at the IPO, I’d have retired years ago!
If I could be present at any business reveal in the past I’d like to be at Hobby Lobby. I love crafts and it would have been great to hear a Christian reveal how he would run a business to the glory of God.
You’ve been asking when the sequel to The Love Boat Bachelor is coming out.
Well, I have some answers. First, let’s admire the pretty cover. Because I’ve read all the chapters but the ending (because YOU get to vote for the hero you want to see in the end) I think it’s a perfect cover.
Okay, June 8th. That’s the day chapters start to release on Write Integrity Press. Follow the chapters AND all the extras that will be available on our pages throughout cyberspace. Tell others. Share links. We want to get a lot of people reading so we have a huge voting turnout. Voting will be later in the month.
We can’t do it without you. Thanks for reading, sharing, voting, and buying our books!
Well, this is a first! This week’s Clash of the Titles Blog Alliance features me and my Adirondack romance, Entrusted. Isn’t that fun? I hope you enjoy the post!
If you enjoy a sweet romance in a quaint village, you’ll love Julie Arduini’s debut novel. She fills the town with delightful and insightful characters. The story has a good balance of humor, wisdom and love. Buy this book, wrap up in a warm blanket with a cup of team, and snuggle in for a great read.
About the book:
Jenna Anderson, sassy city-girl from Youngstown, Ohio, plows–literally–into Adirondack village, Speculator Falls, with a busted GPS. She gets a warning from the sheriff but has ideas for the senior center to prove she belongs in town as their director. Town councilman Ben Regan is as broken as the flower box Jenna demolished. He’s grieving and wants to shut down the center before there’s too much change and heartbreak. They work on community projects and build a slow relationship, but the council needs to vote on the senior center’s future. Can Jenna show Ben both her and the center are worth trusting?

The author shares how Entrusted came about:
My writing includes surrender issues and in Entrusted, Ben and Jenna both struggle. Jenna wants to
belong and Ben’s afraid of loss. They have to surrender those things to their Heavenly Father and trust that He’s taking care of them. Book 2 and 3 also give a clue to the surrender journey with Entangled and Engaged.
The book came about after my first visit to the real village of Speculator in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate NY. As I walked the street and drank in the mountain air, the characters came alive. I’m excited to return to Speculator June 12 as I share my writing experience at the Lake Pleasant library. Then, starting June 25th I’m participating in an Entrusted book club in Youngstown where I plan to share exclusive footage of me visiting the places I used in Entrusted.
