A writer inspired by nature and human nature


It is such a pleasure to introduce this “up and coming author,” Gracie Bradford, and her book about a child with brain cancer. The beagle, Lady Bird, takes on a leading role in this short story. Learn about the role of pet therapy in the healing process.

During her discovery journey and literary, educational adventure, Gracie relates that she stumbled upon software and websites that have proven to give a new meaning to work simplification. She used some of these in her business but discovered they could also be used with some of her writing projects. Most seasoned authors are already familiar with the apps and sites, but the “up and coming authors” may find some of these to be useful. She doesn’t use all, just those that she has the skill set to understand and can give a return on her investment. Although she confesses that she tends to gravitate towards the FREE stuff, she will invest in a few. It will be fun to hear about your favorite sites and apps.

  1. I’m only a month late! Sorry, Gracie & Bette! Hope the phrase: ‘Better late than never’ still holds up! So very sorry about the ‘cancer’, Gracie. God Bless! Again, so sorry I’m late – I did do a tweet at the time but had not joined Bette’s blog at that point! All the very best! ♥

  5. Brain cancer, is a topic very close to my heart & experience, as you will read in my recent post.

    Thank you Bette, ♡


  6. I’d never heard of most of these apps. Thanks for sharing, Gracie! Thanks for hosting, Bette!


  7. You really keep these posts interesting, Gracie. Best wishes.

    Thanks for hosting, Bette. Amazing show of support.


  8. Hi Bette and Gracie,
    Thank you for sharing. I have used three of the above-mentioned links.
    It’s always interesting to see what others use.
    These links will be most helpful for the newbie as well. 🙂


  9. Once again, Gracie, thank you for the very helpful websites. I will add them to the ones you gave us at the beginning of your tour. Thank you, Bette, for hosting her. 😀


  10. Thank you for the great blog! Very informative!


  11. Bette, a lovely post and interesting to learn about Gracie Bradford and her Lady Bird series. I am keen to seek out, particularly free, apps that can be useful. One I have tried of those listed here is freelance.com. In my opinion I would not use this … it is confusing, pricing odd and it just felt wrong. Just my feeling though I’ve seen several reviews afterwards echoing this. Evernote is supposed to be fantastic and so useful carrying across all the devices. I would use that by have notes on my Apple products.

    Wishing you a beautiful blessed weekend, Bette, hugs xxxxx


  12. Some very useful links here, Bette. Thank you for sharing.


  13. Thanks for sharing the helpful links, Gracie. I’ve used Fiverr before to find illustrators, editors, and book cover and trailer designers. Bette, lovely blog, thanks for hosting.


  14. Hi! I’m going to check out the sights that Gracie recommended. Thank you, Gracie! I truly believe in pet therapy. I’ve seen it work first hand. Thanks for hosting, Bette! 😀 xx
