(PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Ready for the start of a fun, flirty summer? Look no further than Sarah Showfety’s hilarious Dating by the Books: One Blundering Singletons Search for Love in the Self-Help Aisle, a must-have for any single girls beach bag.

Sarah was celebrating her 33rd year on the planet when she realized something alarming: it was her ninth consecutive birthday without a boyfriend (and also the age by which she thought shed have three children already). After years swinging and missing on the New York scene, perpetually single Sarah had tried it allspeed, blind and online dating, Meet Market Adventures and Singles Rodeo Nightstill, no guy lasted longer than the half and half in her empty refrigerator. And certainly not long enough to bring home to meet her aging parents. While friends married, mortgaged and multiplied, she dined alone on Triscuits in her one bedroom Brooklyn rental and bought baby presents for her friends newborns online, wondering if it would ever be her turn.

One day as she strolled through the aisles of a Barnes and Noble looking at the new releases, afraid she was cursed, or worse, unlovable, Sarah decides to enroll herself in Love 101: Home School Edition. Using dating guides as her textbooks, shell read a book a month until she gets a clue taking advice from a Buddhist Reiki Healer to the Millionaire Matchmaker; a Harvard M.B.A. to Dr. Phil. This was Sarahs quest to see if the experts could steer her love life out of the dingy garage it was parked in once and for all. Would they help her fix what shed been doing wrong so she could meet Mr. Right?

The experiment was a success. Sarah not only found her Mr. Right but she also wrote Dating by the Books: One Blundering Singletons Search for Love in the Self-Help Aisle, which chronicles her hilarious and heartbreaking misadventures along the way. She also left an unfulfilling job to become a transformational life coach. Her website, Straight Up You, offers a fresh, funny, no BS approach to womens issues relating to careers, dating and relationships. After turning her own life around, Sarahs goal is now to help women find their own inner awesome and create purposeful and authentic relationships and careers.

Sarahs top pieces of advice for singles include:

????Give up the Blame Game. Its not the scene and all men arent jerks! Take responsibility for being single. Look inside and address the thoughts, patterns, and actions in the way of a committed relationship. Then change them.
????Dont Date While Downtrodden. Take a time-out for a self-imposed dating detox. Nurture emotional and mental well-being instead of dating. Take classes, go on vacation, start an exercise regimen or spiritual practice to generate an inner sense of joy and positivity before getting back out there.
????Be Proactive. Go out where singles are, use open body language and icebreakers to start conversation, practice flirting everywhere, ask to be set up, date multiple people and take actions aligned with an intentional vision to meet The One.

When you sell your book on Amazon is it true they have the right to all the content?

Question by : When you sell your book on Amazon is it true they have the right to all the content?
I am self-printing and publishing (no help from Amazon) my own book and want to sell it on their site. But in the terms it says they have non-exclusive right to do what they want with the content of the book. Can this be right?

Best answer:

Answer by rickinnocal
I’m sorry, but you have to be misreading that. No author would dream of selling on Amazon if they really had that clause in their terms.

New York offers many amenities that draw people from all over the world. From the nearly limitless business opportunities, to the diverse populace, to the wide range of cultural options, it is a bustling place to live and work. Because of this variety of riches, you’ll find that there are literally millions of people competing for the limited estate in the area. For those who wish to find some estate in the New York area, this article will provide a few tips and some sage advice.

The first thing you should do when searching for estate in New York is to contact a estate agent or broker. These people will work hard to give you the most options at the best price. Nearly every real estate agent is an expert at finding the right real estate property from a small list of wishes you have for your new home. You provide the price range you are willing to pay, the style of house you want, and the general geographic area where you would like to live. Once your estate agent has this information, you’ll be well on your way to a lovely new home.

Another good idea when searching for estate is to do some preliminary research on the neighborhood you are interested in. If you have a general working knowledge of an area, you will have the information you need to make a hasty decision at the moment your estate agent shows you the property. If you’re aware of the average prices in your area, you’ll get a better feel for whether or not the asking price for your desired property is too high or too low. With information suggesting that the home seller is trying to con you, you will have gained the stronger hand at the negotiating table.

The negotiating process with the seller is a thorny sticking point. If you do it right, your negotiations will give you a lower price than originally asked for, but you won’t have bid so low as to knock you out of the running. In a competitive market like New York, a seller will drop your bid faster than you can blink. A NYC Real Estate agent is the key to getting you ready to make your negotiations and your initial bid.

The information and advice in this article will certainly help you on your way to owning a fine piece of property in New York. See more on manhattan new developments
