Win a Kindle Version of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal

Just in time for Memorial Day, enter to win a book about first love and second chances, featuring a United States Navy veteran:

For readers who are in love with romance, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, stands out among romance books, romance novels and fiction books. Although characters in a work of fiction, Madeline and Ken’s all too human struggles set them apart from the ordinary heroine and hero. In a departure from most romance novels and romance books for Kindle, Water Signs celebrates faith, family, and patriotism even as it explores coming-of-age in a contemporary world where traditional values are shunned and ridiculed. Still, author Daria Anne DiGiovanni infuses the pages with old-fashioned romance while captivating readers with her vivid descriptions of suburban Philadelphia, the South Jersey Shore, and South Florida.As you’re drawn into this mesmerizing tale of first love and second chances, you’ll see, hear, touch, and smell the salty sea air, the sounds of the ocean, and the aroma of homemade Italian food; you’ll also experience the palpable emotions that characterize a 14-year romance fraught with heartache, miscommunication, and most importantly, genuine, abiding love. Looking for a different kind of romance novel – one that inspires, uplifts and makes you believe in happily ever after? Read Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal.

I couldn’t stop myself from being addicted to the outcome of this story! As a mom and an Entrepreneur reading a novel is PURE luxury for me. Reading Daria’s book gave me the escape I needed as I feel in-love with Madeline and could relate to all the longings of her heart, torn between “the right thing to do” by her family and religious standard and what she felt in her heart. Every woman can relate her own youthful hopefulness for a “lifetime” romance, however, Madeline’s journey to love is suspenseful and so engaging I couldn’t stop reading ….and just when I thought the plot was winding down a new twist to keep me hooked was in the next chapter. Indulge in the “treat” of reading this story.

Go Fund Me: Water Signs Marketing Fund

Go Fund Me Water Signs Marketing Fund

After consulting with several trusted entrepreneur friends, I followed my impulse to create a Go Fund Me account for a very specific purpose: to make Water Signs ~ A Story of Love and Renewal a bestseller.

13913971_10210028116210627_5545103186689157129_oIn terms of self-publishing, the process of producing a quality book is a separate and distinct effort from marketing one. Beyond that, book publicity is an entirely different effort, requiring the help of a professional. While social media is an excellent tool for reach readers, it can only take you so far.

Right now, the book has 22 reviews on Amazon – 81% of them 5-star ratings. Most of the feedback readers have sent to me involves gratitude for having created a heroine who represents their values and experiences. Many readers have  confided their own issues with panic and anxiety disorder, and how Madeline’s struggle and triumph gave them hope.

It occurred to me that there are countless others out there who would enjoy and benefit from reading Water Signs — if they only knew it existed. That’s when I got the idea to set up a Go Fund Me.com account for this purpose.

The person I want to hire is a professional with a solid track record of results. I’ve interviewed  a few of her clients and even referred a few of our Writestream Publishing clients to her. She is worth every penny of the $5,000.00 investment.

Which brings me back to my reason for this post. If you’re willing to share or donate, please copy and paste the link below:

Thank You Michelle Seitz of The Formatting Formula!

I’m always amazed by the wonderful connections I’m able to make, thanks to modern technology. It’s even more  fun when I end up having much in common with that new person. In the case of Michelle Seitz of The Formatting Formula, it’s a shared upbringing in suburban Philadelphia. Like me, Michelle’s kids also attended Cardinal O’Hara High School in Springfield, PA.

I came across Michelle’s profile on LinkedIn when I conducted a search for professional formatters. As Writestream Publishing grows, we know we’re going to need even more fabulous formatting pros to help out with client projects. Michelle responded immediately to my email, which led to a nice correspondence and an appointment to discuss her services.

Soon after, she emailed me with a wonderful review of Water Signs — an unexpected, pleasant surprise. When Michelle asked if she could feature my book in a series of formatting videos she was creating, I happily agreed.

Thank you, Michelle, for crediting Matt Margolis of Logotecture.com, who did a phenomenal job with the book interior.
