Fall Is A Great Time to Do Something New

HalloweenBlackCatAndPumpkinFall is a great time to do something new. Even here on our website we have rearranged things and are trying new things to reach more readers and customers. We are using a new eCommerce tools for our eBooks that we sell and have added most of our “mailed” products to a very secure website called SquareUp. For those not familiar with it, SquareUp, started offering FREE credit card processing swipers for those small businesses with smartphones. They do not charge a monthly fee only a small credit card processing charge so that small businesses are able to accept all the major credit cards for their customers.
