Shifting gears to share this with you..please enjoy (with lyrics)

"The Wind That Shakes the Barley" is an Irish ballad written by Robert Dwyer Joyce (1836-1883), a Limerick-born poet and professor of English literature. The song is written from the perspective of a doomed young Wexford rebel who is about to sacrifice his relationship with his loved one and plunge into the cauldron of violence associated with the 1798 rebellion in Ireland. The references to barley in the song derive from the fact that the rebels often carried barley oats in their pockets as provisions for when on the march. This gave rise to the post-rebellion phenomenon of barley growing and marking the "croppy-holes," mass unmarked graves which slain rebels were thrown into, symbolising the regenerative nature of Irish resistance to British rule

"I sat within the valley green, I sat me with my true love My sad heart strove the two between, the old love and the new love The old for her, the new that made me think on Ireland dearly While soft the wind blew down the glen and shook the golden barley 'Twas hard the woeful words to frame to break the ties that bound us But harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us And so I said, "The mountain glen I'll seek at morning early And join the bold united men, while soft winds shake the barley" While sad I kissed away her tears, my fond arms round her flinging The foeman's shot burst on our ears from out the wildwood ringing A bullet pierced my true love's side in life's young spring so early And on my breast in blood she died while soft winds shook the barley But blood for blood without remorse I've taken at Oulart Hollow And laid my true love's clay cold corpse where I full soon may follow As round her grave I wander drear, noon, night and morning early With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley

Authors this will be the best move you make today.



I was so blessed to meet Marquina at a time when I had a book but had no idea how to market it or anything. She got me on a positive path and I have never looked back. 
and she has some free downloads too just for signing up all useful materials

I met Marquina online about a year ago I followed her on twitter

Now this woman has forgotten more about the book industry that most of us know.
She is the real deal

LOOK AT THIS RESUME

For the past 8 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with the Big 5 Publishers as well as thousands of authors to help build platforms and increase book sales.
I’ve built hundreds of Facebook apps & audiences, grown twitter followings, launched giveaways, and sent over 1 million daily ebook deals per year.
It’s an amazing time for authors! Anyone who can tell a story (fiction) or solve a problem (non-fiction) can share their work with the world by self-publishing their book.
Authors are experts in their field, but may not be experts at online marketing. After you write your novel, how do you find your audience? Who helps you build and maintain your social accounts? Which social accounts are right for you and your audience in the first place? And – most importantly – how can an author like you make sure you don’t waste your time and money on efforts that do not have a positive return on investment?
That’s where Authorpreneur Launch comes in!
