Branson Books A Million brings in Dina Dove. Forbes takes notice.

A few minutes ago a friend called. She was so excited she could hardly talk. When she sent me the link, I was able to go on and see for myself. In all my years in the business world, I don’t think I was ever mentioned in Forbes, but today was my day. In conjunction with the Branson Books A Million Grand Opening, I was in the first story on the bisunesswire page of Forbes.com  Pretty exciting for a new first time author.

 

Anyway… for all my friends and readers in the Ozarks, I sure would love to see you there this Saturday at 2 pm for the book signing. If you are dreaming of writing a book of your own some day, there will be a lot of good information at the workshop I’m giving  at 7pm.

 

Here’s the Forbes piece. (I underlined the Baglady part) If you want to go and see it on Forbes, the link is at the bottom of the page. I love you guys. Thank you so much for your support.
