Lucky Week!

Hello fans and followers. Here's hoping you had a really great weekend.

Welcome to the JLB Creatives Blog - I am your host, Janet Beasley.

On this blog you'll find an array of cool stuff that has to do with 
writing, authors, and photography.

Each week we do our best to have a video, weekly topic, weekly link, and a weekly photo. New posts hit on Mondays! 


There are times when we offer contests for book giveaways, interview authors within a wide 
selection of genres, and our top feature Author Splash where you get the chance to
meet authors on a more personal level. Rather than just seeing their book covers and
talking about their books, we take you on a journey of their lives: foods they love, 
hobbies they have, travels they've made, and more!


We just recently added a new page to the 
JLB Creatives Blog:

My husband Don and myself are the founders and owners of this audio visual business. MTP, established in 1998, offers consulting, design, training, and troubleshooting for churches, restaurants, schools, theaters, and other commercial establishments.

We  work with audio, lighting, projection, multi-media, and special effects just to name a few.

Together, we have 60+ years in the industry, and strive to bring you the best audio visual experience that suits your needs.

JLB Creatives is a subsidiary of Multi-Tech Productions, Inc. and serves as the ebook and  video creation division.

We'd like to personally invite you to find out more by visiting the page itself.

the Lucky Week anyway?
Because you're all in luck!

The first bit of luck goes to Heidi

PIC OF THE WEEK
by Janet Beasley
Sing Like No One is Listening!

This photo was taken on the Silver River in Florida. I snapped this shot while kayaking the beautiful spring fed river. This particular bird is known as a double crested cormorant.

More great pics by Janet that are free to download and use 
on business cards, blogs, websites, and more are available on her Flickr site at:

LINK OF THE WEEK:
This amazing place offers some of the coolest kayak tours
around Florida you can take. There are also kayak lessons,
instruction, and all from professionals who
have received their training from the 
American Canoe Association. 
Be sure to check out their fabulous
bioluminescent  tour to see the light-up algae!
I by know means get any kick backs, click through monies, or 
other such compensations. I strictly look for cool stuff
and share the links with you to enjoy.

WEEKLY SUMMARY:
This was quite the lucky week for anyone who stopped by!

We caught a glimpse of the Beasley's long time running company, Multi-Tech Productions, Inc. And to discover more, be sure and visit the company's page right here on the JLB Creatives Blog.

We've discovered the double crested cormorant, taken kayak tours, and have the opportunity for FREE stuff! (Who doesn't love free?)

The cormorant is a unique water bird. I just love their expressions, the way they swim, and the beauty they bring when they fly through the air. I can't lie, it's really fun living in Florida and having access to so many wonderful things of nature year round in the mild temperatures this great land has to offer.

Always pay close attention when kayaking. It's an awesome outdoor sport, and can be as calm or radical as you want it to be depending on the course you choose to travel. Never kayak alone, wear your life vest, and kids - kayak with adults...it's just so much safer and better that way!

Again, the dates for the FREE ebook downloads are as follows: 

Production P.A.R.T.Y. - Coordinating a Theatrical Production is available for FREE March 19, 2012 only!  

Hidden Earth Volume 1 Maycly - Part 1 is available for FREE March 20 - 22, 2012. (Parts 2 and 3 sold separately, or available through the Kindle Lending Library)
