Moo Books! 💖🐄 Selling animal themed books to raise money for abused cats and dogs // entrepreneur, small business writer
Happy National Pet Day!
Remember these sales go straight to saving abused animals in East Texas.
Did I tell you about my bookshops newest section? I’ve been calling them #moobooks – all the books I’ve collected for animal lovers to sell and raise money to rescue animals in East Texas.
All the #moobooks will be set with this background – faded, white wash paint of an old house. So every time you see a book photographed on this back drop, then you know it’s a #moobook
This is just one of the books for the new section in my bookshop.李

Call me spoiled,but I love to write with colorful gel pens and I cover most diaries in stickers. My word of advice to get started on writing is to keep a journal – I can scroll forever in that section of the book store. I write about everything. Concepts, plots, list of characters and things that inspire scenes like dialogue fill my journals as well as to do lists and progress reports. A journal is a place that is your own, a place to be intimate, explore interests and ideas. I need to write. It helps me process events. I’ll actually wait a few days after an event to write so I’m only writing about significant detail. If you’re not trying to be a skilled writer, keeping a journal is still a great idea. I’ve had diaries since I was in middle school and it’s fun to look through those…
