Guest Post by Author Linda Newberry

Today we have a very special guest on Bookaholic. Linda Newberry is here to tell us all about her life as a writer and her books. As an added bonus these books are free this weekend (26/27 10 13). The links to all the books for both UK and US are on the blog. Over to you Linda, and thank you for taking time out of your busy writing schedule to visit us today.

Thank you Wendy, and thank you to your readers for hosting me today. I was in corporate America for nearly forty years. I’d planned on retiring from my purchasing position at a major corporation, but instead was forced to come home (several years before normal retirement age) due to the advancing chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis. When I found that I was unable to return to work, I looked for something I could do for short timeframes daily, something that would allow me to continue my relationships with old co-workers, vendors and clients and be able to serve them. It was imperative to continue to make a useful contribution. In September of last year, I began the No Limits Connection blog. It is a Busy Person’s Workday Bible Study. The email list began to grow.

In November, I dusted off an old book I had written several years ago. It was a word study of Isaiah 60 (Say What?!) that I had developed a daily confession out of. The confession, with constant use, made huge changes in my mindset and eventually the outward trappings of my life. I rewrote the book and published it on Amazon, first as a Kindle book in December and then as a paperback in February. Early this month I released the second book (Great Men Think…) on the importance of thinking, not as men do but using the blueprint God has laid out for us.

The No Limits Connection is now reaching people in 38 countries and continues to grow.

Both of my books are going to be on Free Promo for Kindle version this Saturday and Sunday. If you haven't picked up your copy or if you'd like to share this with anyone in your networks who would be interested, the more the merrier.

Say What?! ‘What’ You Say is Your Future! (2013 Global Ebook Awards Silver Medal Winner!)

It merges the time-honored principles of Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich with the practical disciplines of Bruce Wilkinson’s The Prayer of Jabez. Linda Newberry delves deep into the meaning of Isaiah 60 and paints a poignant picture of the life God desires for you. God’s promise is outlined in this chapter giving a glimpse at happiness. Ms. Newberry helps you tap into this knowledge and achieve a better life.

Great Men Think Alike - Like God

We talk a lot here about our thinking; what we choose to think, catching ourselves thinking things that serve no useful purpose to our direction or our goals, and deciding that when we find useless thoughts invading our mind....we stop and re-think with useful thoughts. This is similar to re-tooling a failing piece of machinery. You take out the failing tool and replace it with a new and functional tool to allow you to produce the desired end result. This is our life and thinking our tool to be useful and productive. It is time for us to wake up and begin to think for ourselves again. Great Men Think Alike – Like God will guide you into productive and effective thinking.
