July 15 Deadline for Retreat on the lake 2009 Monday, Jun 29 2009

July 15, 2009 is when we will decide if the retreat is viable in the 2009 economy. Originally, this was the discount reservation date.

Include a photograph with any mailings (especially electronic): can be an action shot of the author writing or selling, or a special one from the book. If the book is already published, it could even be a “beauty shot” of the book itself.  Make sure to caption the photograph.  If it is from the book and the promotional material doesn’t address the photograph, the caption can be a bit longer to make sure you tie the photo to the book.

Consider joining (or starting) a computer support group. Genealogy, history, book, writing, etc. – they all have clubs, classes, and get-togethers – consider one that can help you with computers!
