Review: "Midnight" by Mari Adkins

Written by Jason Sizemore

You ever known a person, that at first, you weren't too crazy about, but as time passed andrepparttar more you got to know this person,repparttar 150553 better you liked him? In a strange way, newcomer Mari Adkins's first novel, "Midnight", does just this.

The 325 page novel takes us through a mystical adventure with Samantha "Sami" Clark. Inrepparttar 150554 prologue, she's abused, lonely, and ready to commit suicide. Sami travels to Harlan, Kentucky, a beautiful and quiet Appalachian town nestled nearrepparttar 150555 Cumberland Gap. Here she moves in with Steve Young, a shy and caring friend from years past.

As Sami fights her way out of chronic depression, she meetsrepparttar 150556 mysterious Jeremy. Aloof, but supportive, he guides Sami back to health and assists her in a slow self-discovery process. Vampires are involved, but in a caring, passive (too passive for this reader) fashion. Byrepparttar 150557 end ofrepparttar 150558 novel, Sami is still struggling with her life, but with her new friends and growing powers,repparttar 150559 outlook is definitely positive.

Doesn't sound particularly exciting, right? If you're looking for an action packed, vampire-driven lust and rage filled plot, you're better off sticking with Laurell K. Hamilton or Sherrilyn Kenyon. What "Midnight" does is present an emotionally heartwrenching character study. The reader grows to care about Sami. Author Mari Adkins pulls this off withrepparttar 150560 skill of an experienced novelist. While Sami may cry too often, it still feels 'true'. Her actions arerepparttar 150561 actions of a clinically depressed individual.

Profit From Private Label Rights

by Stuart Reid

Most internet marketers are now familiar with Resell Rights and Master Resell Rights, but recently there has been a new trend for "Private Label Rights".

Private Label Rights takerepparttar concept of profiting from other peoples work one step further. They give yourepparttar 150339 raw data,repparttar 150340 meat ofrepparttar 150341 product, and allow you to claim it as your own!

Private Label Rights are an incredible asset torepparttar 150342 marketers arsenal. They give you allrepparttar 150343 benefits of having your own product withoutrepparttar 150344 time and effort of creating it yourself. And you don't getrepparttar 150345 main problem of "vanilla" resell rights, that of everyone sellingrepparttar 150346 same products.

Withrepparttar 150347 rights to these products you are free to include allrepparttar 150348 modifications you wish. You can include allrepparttar 150349 links you want, any graphics you wish and any new content (or edit existing content). And after all this you can place a "(C) Your Name" message to really stamp homerepparttar 150350 message that this is YOUR work.

However a little more work is required to turn this data into a finished, saleable book or application. It's not a matter of branding your name and uploading a website - butrepparttar 150351 small amount of extra effort is well worth it.

Private Label materials can include Source Code to software, text to information products, graphical files, and more. Each has it's own advantages and disadvantages.

Source Code will take some knowledge in order for you to `compile`repparttar 150352 code into a finished software product, and for you to modify it to your specifications. Forrepparttar 150353 average Marketer this would involve hiring a third party to do this for you, adding torepparttar 150354 time and cost. However, software has a higher perceived value than an e-book or report.

Graphical files also take some ability to modify. Sometimes they are supplied as a raw image in JPG, BMP or GIF format. Any graphics program can load these and you can usually perform simple modifications.

A more powerful solution is to haverepparttar 150355 graphic supplied as a Photoshop file. This contains a greater amount of information, and you can editrepparttar 150356 graphic to a greater extent. Unfortunately you need a copy of Photoshop to do this.

Text files for eBooks, Articles and Reports are much easier to work with. For example:

1. You can brandrepparttar 150357 book with as many links, affiliate programs, back-end sales, or content as you wish.

2. You can splitrepparttar 150358 content and provide it as an e-course delivered by autoresponder. You can charge for this, or use it for list-building and further sales.

3. You can placerepparttar 150359 content online and build info-packed websites, perhaps profiting fromrepparttar 150360 traffic via advertising, such as Google's AdSense program.

4. You can mix-and-match these, building a site selling YOUR branded product, that also capturesrepparttar 150361 visitors e-mail address and provides an e-course (which links back torepparttar 150362 paid product). Articles on your site will helprepparttar 150363 search-engines find and rank you. All this can be accomplished withrepparttar 150364 Private Label Content!
