Why Your Book Needs a WordPress Site

To be effective a site needs to be stable and reliable and it needs to give you the options to meet the unique needs of your audience.
Too many writers getting started on the web don’t realize what their options are and end up choosing an “easy” and “cheap” solution that turns out to be neither. They end up paying too much and not getting the kind of hard-working website they need.
I recommend the WordPress platform for writers’ websites, especially for writers who want to take charge of their own site to update their content.

Here are four  reasons that WordPress is the best platform for a writer’s website:

1. It is Free

When you get a WordPress site, all the underlying code to run the site is available for free on the web. If you want to take the time to learn how to install and run it, you can do that.

If you prefer to have someone else do it for you, I can help you.

2. Easy to brand your site

With WordPress, changes to one page can apply across the board. And you can change the entire design in a few minutes adding your own colors and images.

3.It is uniquely Yours

Choose from literally thousands of WordPress designs and then customize the colors, layout, images, and fonts to present yourself in a way that best engages your reader.

4. It is search engine friendly

Ninety-five percent of web searchers never turn past the first page of search engine results. If you want to put your site before web searchers who are looking for you, you want to be as high in the search rankings as possible.
Google loves WordPress sites, because of the way they organize information. Aside from that, it’s easy to give the search engine programs signals about your site’s topic without ever dipping into the programing, so you can tweak it in moments without running the risk of breaking the site. Their are plugin for that.

Inexpensive, Unique, Customizable

WordPress recently logged more than 50 million sites using it. It’s the most commonly adopted platform on the web. It offers stability, reliability and almost unlimited options at a price any site owner can afford. If you’re planning your website, start with WordPress. You will be amazed at how good your book looks.

The Treasure of My Heart


The Treasure of My Heart
by Linda Lindor
website:http://treasureofmyheart.lynnlangtry.com
The land was Costa Rica; a place of memories…

The deep green silhouette of two giant mountains lay against the peaceful sky of late afternoon. The sunken valley cradles tales of many adventures and memories. The place is encamped by a range of mountains that lead to the pacific, but to follow her trail the traveler is indeed challenged by her never ending peaks.

Not far to the east, there is a volcano. Some say that they have seen both the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans from her heights; a sight to behold only on a bright, cloudless day. This giant forms a picturesque backdrop for the great valley.

Into the hills, one is drawn by the melody of a cascade whose song is thunderous in rainy winter months, and yet gentle and soothing in the dry summer heat. Then, the once lush green carpet turns to gold.

Along the stream runs a path that leads from a small bathing pool created by a dam of logs, to a rough cabin hidden in the woods. The sounds of children daily harmonize with the river’s tune especially in the heart of the summer vacations.

The sounds were of joy, a happy song. They were the voices and laughter of three delightful youths…

This story contains a secret code. Can you find it? You will need to look for clues as you read along…think about the coin…

This is such a delightful story encompassing 16 century Spain and modern Costa Rica. I got completely caught up in Annabella’s life …her fear of the unknown New World.Costa Rica and then her love for Anthony. And then being transformed back to the present by the young children finding  Annabella’s diary and trying to solve the secret code.

All the images in this book where hand painted by Linda and they add a beautiful,sensual dimension to the story.
