It's Saturday and time to share some of the cool links I've discovered this week, including the Singularity and found friends

Are you making as much money as you can on the sale of your book(s)? Are you optimizing the market? Chances are you’re not selling to the international market.

Nicole Renae loved her childhood dog, Chloe, but she had to give her up when her father started working at home (distraction free environment).

Years later, grown, married, and with a baby, she decided to get another pet. While browsing through Facebook, she saw an ad for an elderly dog that looked very familiar.

You guessed it! Her adopted new pet is the same as her old pet. After an eight year separation, Nicole was reunited with Chloe.

Cheryl
