#MotownWriters September Author of the month @ETLizCrowe with Book Feature of new release Lady Balls #michiganauthors #michiganwriters #michlit

Current Feature Author:

About the Author 
Amazon best-selling author, mom of three, Realtor, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fundraising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse to call upon for inspiration.
With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished. Liz books bring something unique, both in settings and characters, that will hook readers of romance, women’s fiction, and chick lit alike.

“If you want a story that will grip your heart and bring all your emotions into play, then do not miss a Liz Crowe story.”
---International and U.S.A. Today Bestselling Author Desiree Holt

"Liz Crowe is my drug of choice for unconventional romance that pushes the envelope of my comfort zone."
--Bestselling Author of the Enigma Series, Ditter Kellan

Liz Crowe writes intense true-to-life stories that make you feel. Whether it's anxiety, love, fear, hate, bliss, or loss woven into her plot lines, you will feel it deep down to your very soul.
--Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“I’ve learned to expect the unexpected with any Liz Crowe novel—along with 3-dimensional characters and well-written, realistic plots.”
--USA Today Bestselling author AM Hargrove

How to monetize your blog @ #MotownWriter @meetup @detroitLibrary Sat., Sept14th 10am w/Authors, Hasani Ali & Shelbie Ali

Bio: Both Shelbie and Hasani Ali became authors and relationship coaches through The Aboriginal Republic of North America. They have survived . The Ali's share their experiences with infidelity, depression, and parenthood help inspire families to be dynamic, passionate, and purposeful. 

Their company, Twin Flame Coalition, have spoken for Google, Central Michigan University, University of Michigan, and frequent guests on the A List Jams Radio. 

Shelbie and Hasani specialize in developing happy relationships from a spiritual and health perspective. Their primary goal is to eliminate toxic behaviors from relationships. 


#MotownWriters Meeting Topic: In this meeting we will talk about how to monetize your blog. We have used our blog to promote book sales, course, and coaching programs. It's a myth that you have to be a best seller to make money as a writer. Blogs not only keep your writing skills sharp, it builds your brand as a writer and keeps effortless income flowing your way. The best part is as long as you wake up everyday there is always something to write about.

Hasani Ali & Shelbie Ali
