Meet Lauren, A Stella & Dot Stylist!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. 

Have you ever thought of running your own business? OWN IT! Write your own success story! Meet Lauren! She did just that.

Lauren is familiar with the word 'sacrifice'. She is a mom and a military wife whose husband is a pilot in the Air Force. Though she has to make sacrifices daily, one thing Lauren refused to sacrifice was her joy. One day, while her husband was serving in Iraq, she decided that she needed to take ownership of her personal happiness and find something that she could love that belonged to just her, as well as give her a sense of pride. 

That 'something' was becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist! Now she is defining her success on her own terms and celebrates the fact that she is the one that treats her husband on date night.

Lauren says,"My husband was in Iraq when I signed up and I had already made back my investment before he returned!"

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for

VESSEL by Lisa T. Cresswell

presented by Month9Books!
Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post!
This sounds like an awesome book! I love the synopsis and the cover is awesome! I love the colors!
The sun exploded on On April 18, 2112 in a Class X solar storm the likes of which humankind had never seen.
They had exactly nineteen minutes to decide what to do next.
They had nineteen minutes until a geomagnetic wave washed over the Earth, frying every electrical device created by humans, blacking out entire continents, and every satellite in their sky.
Nineteen minutes to say goodbye to the world they knew, forever, and to prepare for a new Earth, a new Sun.

Generations after solar storms destroyed nearly all human technology on Earth, humans reverted to a middle ages-like existence, books are burned as heresy, and all knowledge of the remaining technology is kept hidden by a privileged few called the Reticents.
Alana, a disfigured slave girl, and Recks, a traveling minstrel and sometimes-thief, join forces to bring knowledge and books back to the human race. But when Alana is chosen against her will to be the Vessel, the living repository for all human knowledge, she must find the strength to be what the world needs even if it's the last thing she wants.

Lisa T. Cresswell
Lisa, like most writers, began scribbling silly notes, stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed and starred in a play "The Queen of the Nile" at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that's why she went on to become a real life archaeologist?
Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Her first books became the middle grade fantasy trilogy, The Storyteller Series. Her first traditionally published work, Hush Puppy, is now available from Featherweight Press.
Lisa still lives in Idaho with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!
