Our Month-End Gift To You: Promopalooza at WITS!!

We’re throwing open the comments at Writers In The Storm today for a little of what I like to call “Pimp and Promote.”

How does this work?

Here’s the rules for this Carnival of Comment Fun:

I’m taking a page out of Chuck Wendig’s book once again for you guys to do the following…

  • Pimp out somebody else’s work – this can be a favorite author, blogger, post or book you’ve read, a wonderful teacher or just someone who had profound influence on you as a writer or a person.
    OR
  • Promote one of your projects that you’re excited about – a hobby, a blog, a book, a new direction your writing is taking you. You decide. Just tell us all about it in the comments! The rest of us will jump in and “ooooh and coo” at you, and likely promote your project even further (because that’s just how we roll).

Better yet, do one of each! And please peruse the comments. You might find something else you like in the plethora of pimping that’s about to ensue.

We hope y’all are looking forward to an amazing August!

~ Fae, Jenny, Laura, Orly and Sharla

  2. Oooh, what good timing – I have a project to promote!. But first, with an eye on Karma, my pimp: http://myndishafer.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/wedding-ring-do-over-vote-for-23/

    That link will take you to Myndi Schafer’s page, and a (true) story about selling her rings, and the one her husband designed for her as a replacement, based on the trees from her Shrilugh books. They could win the ring, but the contest ends Aug 2. For some reason, this story just tugged my heartstrings to hard I can’t stop thinking about it. Click and vote for her ring (It’s really the best one, anyway!).

    The project of my own to promote is a Triberr tribe, that shakes off the inbreeding and content recycling I keep seeing. I started a new tribe – Zeitgeist – and I am looking for a few good bloggers that want to participate. MANY topics will be covered, it is deliberately a topicless tribe – http://rantravewrite.com/2013/07/14/bloggers-wanted-no-seriously will lay out the finer details, but I am looking for a total of about 20 bloggers, flips sides of the coin, lots of stuff. Read the post, hit me up if you are interested.

    And thanks for the venue, Jenny!

  3. Jenny, this is too much fun. I can shout out about our very own Laura Drake, who after having her first launch with Sweet Spot, will release her second in August, Her Road Home … AND who after teaching with Margie,turned around and taught with OCCRWA. Thanks for reaching back to help hapless souls with the daunting task of querying.

    And then I’d like to shout out the book launch of my good buddy Shelley Noble, Stargazey Point, who also writes as Shelley Freydont, who made it to the NYBSL (Beach Colors) and has a new book out this month and all WITS readers should look up her books in both of her names.

    And about me? Well me is so busy with submissions for my first in a series mystery. Sent to agents and independent pubs like Kensington … Framed in Black and White. I am revising and preparing to submit two other novels for this year of 2013 … one romantic susense and one paranormal fantasy AND of course visit my blog because I do fabulous Flash Fiction and Features that are fun and subscribe to my blog because I am also fun … fOIS In The City; Ramblingsfromtheleft.wordpress.com … AND I am getting my shop on Etsy.com ready for the Christmas season. I sell collectibles and crafts so go to Etsy.com and Finds of The City is my shop.

    How’s that for one of my long-winded, drawn out and increditlby lengthy response comments ?? Love you guys🙂

  4. My books are still in the write and query stages so let me promote Ace Hansen’s hilarious MG Julius Caesar Brown and the Green Gas Mystery for those that need a juvenile laugh and Mary Waibel’s forthcoming August release from MuseItUp Publishing of a cozy fairy tale retelling, Charmed Memories.

  5. Jaye Garland says:

    Oh, I do love this website, and you just keep me coming back. LOL! Okay, there are several authors who’ve captured my heart, but I’d have to say that Julie Garwood is my all-time favorite. She turns a plot twist to an art form, and the opening lines and closing hooks in each chapter make her books fresh and exciting. That’s a tactic I worked to achieve in my writing. We’ll see what the world thinks on how successful I was, real soon. My debut novel will be available on Amazon as an eBook first on August 28th. I’m so excited! This is a Time Travel Romance, on the sweet side, but peppered with suspense. Thanks for the opportunity to share!

  6. Piper Bayard says:

    Pimp: RISE OF THE MACHINES by Kristen Lamb is out. There’s a reason she is known as a social media maven. No one understands social media and how to use it as an author like she does, and her voice even makes it an easy and entertaining read.

    Promote: FIRELANDS — 5 Star Dystopian Thriller available now from Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and iTunes. “Thrilling, moving, and ultimately hopeful . . . a novel to be savored.” ~James Rollins, NYT Bestseller of THE EYE OF GOD

    Thanks, Jenny!

  7. Mary Waibel says:

    If you enjoy Historical Romance, why not give THE DEVIL TAKE YOU or YOU FOUND ME by HK Carlton a try. They will sweep you away. If you enjoy romance with heat, her LOST TIME is another excellent read. Think Jude Devereaux’s KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR, but with lots more heat (and IMO a better ending!)

  8. lorriethomson says:

    Self-promo: I’m thrilled to share that my debut, Equilibrium, releases from Kensington on August 27, and is available for pre-order now! According to RT Book Reviews: “Thomson’s debut is riveting…Romantic, yet heartbreaking all the way through, this novel is a beautiful take on starting over in life.”

    Other-writer promo: I’m currently reading and adoring Sharla Lovelace’s Before And Ever Since. A cast of realistic well fleshed-out characters that pull in you and provide a delightful juxtaposition for the elements of magical realism.Sweet, romantic, and unputdownable.

  9. Addy Rae says:

    I love, Love, LOVE Dawn Rae Miller’s ‘Larkstorm’. YA, with Paranormal? Magic and a pair of so sweet lovebirds who just can’t be together, in fact one is fated to be the death of the other, but they are trying SO HARD anyway. It made me cry, and I couldn’t put it down. There’s a bit of world jolt a few chapters in where your understanding of what’s going on violently shifts, but the actual world totally fits and makes the story far more interesting. So good! And it’s a small press/self pub (not really sure how that falls) so it’s easy on the wallet. There is a sequel out that’s also fantastic, but I’m just pushing the first book so you can try it for yourself. 😀

    As for myself, I don’t have any projects at the Reveal stage. Still learning to revise now that I’ve mastered the first draft! 😉

  10. Amber West says:

    This is a two-in-one…

    If any of you haven’t checked out http://searchingforsuperwomen.com/, do it. This month there’s a special series about internalizing equality through fiction that various contributors will be participating in.

    On the same site, my first post as a contributor goes up tomorrow – the intro to a series about the companions of Doctor Who.

    Much geekery. Lots o’ superwomen.

  11. Marlene Moss says:

    Self promo – probably the most important thing I’ve learned while writing is that I LOVE critiquing/editing as much (or more) than writing. And I think I’m pretty good at it. My goal is to offer editing services, both line-editing and high level but skewed toward the line editing side, for a fee. But for right now, I’m offering these services for free. I give comments on “why” I offer a particular suggestion, so the author can learn and move forward improving their writing skills. My blog is http://www.marlenemoss.blogspot.com or my email is writing(at)marlenemoss(dot)com.

    Blog promo – http://operationawesome6.blogspot.com/ is a fantastic blog, full of great information and of course contest! Who can pass up a potential agent attention grabbing opportunity?!

  12. What a fun post! And great comments! I have several new tabs open in my browser now! LOL! My latest book came out last month. (I can’t believe it’s been a whole month!) It’s a humorous urban fantasy called Unexpected Superhero, about a young woman who returns from her honeymoon to find out she has super powers! It’s lots of fun. 🙂 It’s free to borrow for Amazon Prime members and – tell your friends – the Kindle book will be FREE to everyone August 10-14. Watch your BookBub email for the reminder. 🙂

    My current nonfiction reading right now is the awesome Your First 1000 Copies by Tim Grahl. It’s got great information on how to get the momentum going in your initial book sales. I’m loving it!

    http://www.amazon.com/First-Copies-Step—Step-ebook/dp/B00DMIWAIC/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375289772&sr=1-1&keywords=your+first+1000+copies

    The novel I’m reading right now is my friend Anne Cleeland’s debut, Tainted Angel. When she said, “it’s Mr & Mrs Smith in regency England” I knew I had to read it! I’m about 1/4 through it and I’m LOVING it!

    http://www.amazon.com/Tainted-Angel-ebook/dp/B00BEXP516/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375289846&sr=1-1&keywords=tainted+angel

    Thanks, WITS friends! This is fun! 🙂

  13. I just finished reading CODE WHITE, a debut medical thriller you don’t want to miss! I met the author at Thrillerfest (he’s in my debut class *s*) and I can’t wait to read his next books. Here’s the amazon link to the Ebook but it’s available in hardcover, trade paper and audio: http://www.amazon.com/Code-White-ebook/dp/B008BU6XZM/

    Have to do a SNOOPY-DANCE-‘O-JOY at some major progress on the sequel to my debut thriller–wrote another 12k words this past week on HIDE AND SEEK. It also includes dog viewpoint and takes place about a month after the ending of LOST AND FOUND (now 68 starred reviews, woot!). Oh, it’s in audio too…would love some more feedback on the audio version, if anyone is inclined (you can get it free if you sign up for a trial audible membership, hint hint!). http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_4?asin=B00AU81K4M&qid=1375291150&sr=1-4

    Self-Promo–I’d like to promote my debut book DEADLY SYNDROME. It’s a thriller, heavy on the medical and suspense with a touch of romance. So far, I have nine 5-star reviews on Amazon and one 5-star review from a Goodreads reviewer. It’s available in print as a trade edition and as an e-book on Amazon and on Smashwords. My ad on the book just came out in the August issue of the RWA Reporter. Take a look! For a detailed description and to chech out Amazon reviews go to:

  16. marsharwest says:

    I’m so glad I took time to stop today. Great ideas and super congrats to all!
    Promo:1) A Different Kind of Honesty by Jane Richardson–cool cop drama (romance) between a Britisher and a Yank set in NYC. Hard to put down. 2) Forewarning by Kate Wyland–mystery/romance with of hint of paranormal. Soo good. 3) Sugarwater Ranch by Stephanie Berget–set in the world of the rodeo, ranching, and cows. 4) Anything by Jerrie Alexander-awesome romantic suspense.

    Pimping: So excited to announce my first book VERMONT ESCAPE debuted July 19 & is available at B & N http://goo.gl/llR6D, Amazon http://goo.gl/qhzBm (Don’t know how to make those blue here. LOL) My book has been at the MuseItUp Publishing bookstore, but it’s undergoing some remodeling. Should be up and going by next Monday. There it’s in any e-format.
    Thanks for this opportunity. Loved hearing everyone’s promo and pimping ideas.

  17. Our client Katie Fingerhut Heaney is almost done with her non-fiction book “Bananacondas: The Natural Method to Raise a Kid Who’ll Eat Anthing” — http://bananacondas.com/

    She’s a dietitian, her co-author sister is a doula, and they write convincingly about how to raise non-picky kids (though my kids are older than the authors, this is how we raised them, and they weren’t picky.)

    And Someday Box, my book shepherding service (http://SomedayBox.com/) continues to grow. Coaching clients, publishing packages, and continued interest in my planned book about commonsense zero-cost DIY marketing for indie authors.

    But I’ve always got room for Pathfinding Sessions (http://somedaybox.com/) — I’ll help you be sure you’re writing the right book, for the right fans, for the right reason.

    And my Chandleresque cozy “anodyne” is gonna be done. Someday. Not today, but someday. And then I can finish “anacrusis” and start on “backscatter” and, er, the “b” entry for the Jade series, whatever I decide to name it.

  18. Carol Opalinski says:

    I wanted to pimp out The Sweet Spot by Laura Drake. I totally loved that book and I’m counting the days until Her Road Home comes out in August and then a long wait until Jan 2014 for Nothing Sweeter.

    And I also want to pimp my very own critique partner’s Man Of My Dreams by Faith Andrews. She doesn’t have a release date yet but I am told it’s coming to an e-reader near you soon.😉

    Nothing of my own to promote but I’m working on it.

  19. Chrissy Szarek’s Sword’s Call is a wonderful, almost epic tale of a man and a woman’s search for their place in their world and how they find love and happiness after overcoming all the obstacles.

    Usually, I don’t pay attention to their e-mails, but this caught my eye with its comments about the first lines of great books. It makes me wonder whether I should spend time on the setting, making the character sympathetic, or jump in in the middle of the action. Of course, a great first sentence might do all three, but that is hard to do in one sentence.

    http://blog.bookbaby.com/2013/04/first-sentences-of-great-books/?utm_campaign=BB1331&utm_source=BBeNews&utm_medium=Email

    I’m looking forward to the release in late August or early September of Romancing the Gold, from Noble Romance. It’s a tale of smuggling and danger at an archaeological dig, complete with a hunky photographer with a secret agenda, a feisty heroine, and a jungle trek.

    I’d like to mention two brand new releases.
    “Vermont Escape” by Marsha West http://goo.gl/qhzBm A great suspenseful cozy.
    And “The Secret in Grandma’s Trunk” by Cherley Grogg. A fun mystery for older kids. You can read about how it came about and get the buy link by visiting http://tinyurl.com/kyy5cq7

    I recently released “FOREWARNING” http://tinyurl.com/l93s8ml A romantic suspense story set on an Oregon horse ranch with a paranormal twist.
    http://katewyland.com/my-books/

    • Wow, Kate. I’m trying to wrap my head around a horse ranch with a paranormal twist as a romantic twist. Guess I’ll just have to buy it and read how you pulled that off!
      -Fae

  21. Finding some great additions to my TBR list here. I want to pimp my fellow misterio press authors who are now helping me out with the blog at our site. This summer they have a variety of fun and interesting posts planned, from quirky recipes to true crime, at http://misteriopress.com So please show Kathy Owen, Stacy Green, JoAnn Bassett, Kirsten Weiss and Catie Rhodes some blog love and stop by often to see what they’re up to.

    And I wanted to share with the writerly world that I wrote a short story recently. You’re probably thinking ‘Whoopdedoo’ about now. But the big deal FOR ME is that it is populated by completely different characters than my mystery series. I’m so excited to discover I can actually write something besides Kate Huntington mysteries. The story’s not ready for publication yet but if you’d like to check out my series here’s my Amazon author page link where all the books are listed: http://www.amazon.com/Kassandra-Lamb/e/B006NB5WAI/

    And thanks, Jenny, and WITS for providing a place for me to blather on about all this.😀

  22. I have been fortunate enough to contribute several essays to WITS, and I want to thank everybody for the kind words about them.
    On to business!
    Pimp — Alan Brennert, author of best selling Molokai and Honolulu, has a new book out, called Palisades Park. Historical fiction built around the New Jersey amusement park, and a great read.
    Promote — My new book, Pennies For Her Eyes, is doing really well. My last signing was at a bookstore in Orange, CA, called Book Carnival. I drew an audience of 40 readers, so I’m a happy camper. Look for Pennies For Her Eyes at Book Carnival, Amazon, or on http://www.jamesrpreston.com.
    Thanks again!

    • Yeah, James! I was so sorry to be out of town for your Book Carnival signing. Your series is great–what’s better than murder in Vegas?
      -Fae

      • Thanks, Fae! It was a great afternoon and we sold a lot of books. Ann Saller, owner of Book Carnival, was really pleased with the results. For pictures, check out her site, annesbookcarnival.com. Me? I was stoked! Are you going to blog about your presentation at RWA? I’d like to hear about it.

        • I’m going to look at those pictures–thanks for the link. As to blogging about the talk that Laura Drake, Tessa Dare and I gave on Fear and The Courageous Writer, I wasn’t planning on going to that dark side again here at WITS. Those of you who are interested can find the handout with lots of quotes about fear on Laura’s website. However, thanks for the nudge. I probably need to share my amazing conference experiences with everyone that couldn’t make it to Atlanta.
          -Fae

    • Laura Drake says:

      Wow, James, LOVE your title! I’m going to check it out, as soon as I finish squeeing (is that even a word?) about Florence and Carol’s comments….

  23. Hi folks… sorry I don’t have anyone else’s work to pimp, but thank you kindly for the opportunity to promote my latest book, “The Timothy Trilogy: Resurrection~Reclamation~Recompense” by R. J. Jones, available in PDF format as well as ebook formats at:
    bookstore.bookcountry.com
    It’s only $11.25 for over 800 suspense-filled pages which involve mystery, murder, kidnapping, rogue government agents, a maniacal doctor harvesting psychic abilities, etc. If you click on this link it should take you directly to the book where you can preview the book and read comments from readers. Since I’m new to this I’m uncertain if this link will work, so if not I can be contacted at jroxanne44@yahoo.com. Once again I thank you kindly for this opportunity.

  24. Laura Drake says:

    Sorry I’m late – hobbling on crutches makes everything take longer in my world.
    PIMP: Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA) is almost open for business (within a month or two) but in the meantime, we’ve got a very active loop of over 250 members (men too) talking WF. If you’re interested, email WITS, and I’ll get you on the loop!

    PROMOTE: My ‘biker-chick’ book, Her Road Home, releases Aug 6. It’s not cowboys, but if you liked the deep emotion in The Sweet Spot, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. You can enter to win a free digital copy by signing up for my brand new newsletter – just go to: http:/LauraDrakeBooks.com Thanks, WITSers!

  25. PIMP: My good friend Lisa Hall-Wilson did a really great post called Want to be Interesting on Facebook? Let Your Followers See Oz (http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/want-to-be-interesting-on-facebook-let-followers-see-oz/).

    PROMOTE: I had a blog post up on Kristen Lamb’s site called 7 Reasons Every Writer Should Be on Twitter (http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/7-reasons-every-writer-needs-to-be-on-twitter/). It has links to my upcoming Twitter classes, but I hope it has takeaway value even if people aren’t interested in the classes.

    • Jenny Hansen says:

      Both those posts were EXCELLENT, Marcy! But then you and Lisa always are.🙂

      p.s. If y’all haven’t taken classes from Marcy or Lisa, you are seriously missing out. Plus, they both will analyze your profiles, pages, usage, etc of the social media platform and put you on the right road. It’s priceless.

  26. Kaye Munroe says:

    I can’t really promote myself, because I tore up my shoulder 4.5 mos ago which has stalled the revision of my manuscript–so I’ll ‘pimp’ for my childhood friend, Kate Brady.

    Her big sister was my best friend when we were kids, and I’m so proud of what she’s accomplished. Kate worked for years to hone her skills in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a published author, and refused to quit until she succeeded.

    Here’s a link to her last book: http://www.amazon.com/Where-Angels-Rest-Family-ebook/dp/B007BGQ9FQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1375311688&sr=1-1&keywords=Kate+Brady

  27. Pimp: Mr. Wendig has a new novel out that I think would appeal to many of you: Under the Empyrean Sky (http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2013/07/30/under-the-empyrean-sky-out-now/ ). Also, I just finished reading K.M. Weiland’s Dreamlander and it was fabu (here’s my review: http://melaniemarttila.ca/2013/07/27/review-of-k-m-weilands-dreamlander/ )
    Promote: Hell and dang, I’m still revising! But I should be finished soonish. SOON.😉

  28. Julie Glover says:

    PROMOTE: I already saw several books I might have promoted mentioned above, so instead I’ll mention a woman I recently met at Margie Lawson’s Immersion class. Elizabeth Essex is an historical romance author. I asked which book of hers I should start with, and she said Your TextALMOST A SCANDAL. Reading her book kept me up long past my bedtime last night! If you like that genre, check it out.

    PROMOTE: I got nothing. I’m in the middle of edits, I’m on blog vacation, and I’m recovering from summer activities.

  29. aerobabe619 says:

    Jenny,First thank you for a wonderful,chance.

    Please come visit,grab a cup of joe,or a frosty diet pepsi (my addiction) and enjoy both blogs.Thank you Jenny

  30. I want to pimp the site of my friend Kruti, from India, whose first novel “Fossils of Memory” has just come out. She would love some support on her blog site – 10eveningflowers -to promote it. The link is: http://10eveningflowers.wordpress.com/

    I would also like to promote my own, newly set up, writing site “Write Out Loud” designed to put thoughts and resources I come across which are helpful for writers. It’s my way to put back in to the community what I’ve got out. I’ve even got some reblogs from WITS coming up there with an encouragement to join this wonderful blog!

    I’ve also set it up to build a writing community in readiness for my own first novel – “The Pukur” – which comes out later this year. As the year goes on I hope to throw out some goodies linked to that for followers.

    It’s early days for the blog with only a few posts up yet so I would love to have WITS followers join me and add comments, support etc. The link is: http://writeoutloudblog.com/

  31. Pimp: S.G. Rogers is having a free day for her latest Victorian Romance novel DUKE OF A GILDED AGE, today only (August 1st). You can get it on Kindle from: http://www.amazon.com/Duke-Gilded-Age-ebook/dp/B00DO5DAPK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375365213&sr=1-1&keywords=S.G.+Rogers
    I’ve read her work before and I highly recommend it!

    Promo: Meanwhile, my very first paranormal romance PASSION’S SACRED DANCE was just released from The Wild Rose Press.
    Herein, Celtic Warriors come to a modern woman and protect her from an evil god who wishes to wrench the sacred ground she holds from her:

    Battling mounting debt, Stacy Macken is determined not to lose her historic art gallery. When Aaron Fielding appears and offers to help, she fights to keep the attraction sizzling between them from clouding her judgment. He may be her savior in disguise–but can she trust him?
    It’s available from Kindle Select at:
    http://www.amazon.com/Passions-Sacred-Dance-Harshad-ebook/dp/B00E4WOBWI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1374776620&sr=1-1
    I hope you enjoy them both. Thanks for this opportunity, ladies!

  32. Jennifer says:

    Hi Jenny & crew. I didn’t think I had anything for P&P, but I do!

    First, I’d like to pimp Susan Reiss’ debut mystery, Tarnished Silver. It’s set on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, has a great storyline and characters, plus an overgrown black lab puppy. How can you go wrong? She’s selling a lot of print books in St. Michael’s (the town where she lives and it’s set), but hasn’t done much online/e-book marketing yet. It’s on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Tarnished-Silver-Sterling-Mysteries-ebook/dp/B00CYOVZL8/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1375483906&sr=8-1. (I hope that shows up as a link!)

    For promoting, mostly I’m just glad to be done with summer semester, with whole two weeks now until fall semester starts. That’s right, just two. (It was three, but one of them is half gone) Anyway, if I can get my brain back in gear, I’ll be pulling out a short e-book project from last year, with the hopes of launching it in September. And maybe even writing a few blog posts!

    Thanks for the chance to do shout-outs. Cheers!

    • I have a question… is this site’s comments/responses simply for a group of established writing friends promoting one another? If so, I apologize for using it to attempt promoting my own…

      • Addy Rae says:

        Not that I’m aware of. 🙂 I posted too, and I don’t know any of these lovely folks! I just don’t have anything of my own to promote yet.

        • Thank you Addy… was feeling like an intruder🙂

        • Jenny Hansen says:

          Addy Rae is exactly right…we do this for our readers periodically, and you are here reading and interacting, so pimp away.🙂

        • roxanne jones says:

          Thank you kindly Jenny… I do so appreciate the opportunity as I can’t afford to advertise my books!  People who have read them say they love them/want more, but “word of mouth” is an uncertain-at-best means of “advertising/promoting”🙂  So again I thank you kindly for this opportunity!   “I’d rather think ‘too much’ and feel ‘too much’ than be guilty of doing either Too Little!

        • Roxanne, in my 3 businesses (one of them is as a marketing adviser to entrepreneurs) I emphasize that word of mouth is the *surest* marketing. Not the fastest, certainly. And not the easiest either. But the surest, the most long-lasting, the most satisfying, the most effective.

          I’d love to chat about how your experience has been different, and what I could do to help change that. Feel free to give me a shout in the contact form on my website if you’d like to continue the conversation. (And anybody else who’d like to have the conversation is welcome as well.)

        • Hi Joel & thanks. How do I access your website?

        • Roxanne, you can always click someone’s name to see what they linked themselves to. Mine should go to http://joeldcanfield.com/ but who knows; I have a dozen websites. (I’m trying to cut back.)

          Or just Google me. I’m ubiquitous. Or email joel@somedaybox.com.
