Contest Alert: What’s your vision for 2018? Enter to win!

CONTEST ALERT ENTER TO WINWe’ve teamed up with VSP Individual Vision Plans, the national leader in eye care benefits, to share their affordable individual vision insurance package – perfect for independent business owners and retirees who don’t have employer-provided vision care –  and we have some big news:

One lucky winner will receive a $200 Visa gift card, which can be used to purchase a VSP Individual Vision Plan, which includes a vision exam and $150 towards frames or contacts!

AND, we’re also giving away Authority membership in the Nonfiction Authors Association for a full year ($190 value).

If you’re covered under private insurance, perhaps it hasn’t occurred to you that you don’t have vision coverage. But vision care is critical for all of us. As we age, the likelihood of developing vision issues increases. According to WebMD, common vision issues include eye strain from working on computers all day, night blindness caused by cataracts and other issues, floaters, glaucoma, dry eyes and various retinal disorders, among a host of other concerns.

Because vision coverage is essential, we’ve made it easy for you to enter to win a plan of your own.

  5. Saraj says:

    My vision is to expand my reading library by reading new authors and genres that i previously didn’t

  6. I have been trying to get my major nonfiction history book published since attaining my master’s in history in 2006. I think everyone has rejected it twice now, but always with kind words like “interesting, wish we could.” In the coming year I will 1) get an article published from the book to demonstrate its validity, and 2) publish it myself if these comments still plague me by mid-year. Civil War & Bloody Peace: following orders took me 20 years of research, with travel all over the country for primary documents, and deserves to be read, showing the history of our country the way it should be written.
    –Monette Bebow-Reinhard, author of Saving Boone: Legend of the Half-White Son

  10. Jim Morack says:

    2018 will be a year of metamorphosis. Currently going through a painful, unwanted divorce, and in the last few years have survived 3 painful back fusion surgeries, 3 job layoffs, and near-financial ruin… where else is there for me to go?

    In 2018 I am not just creating a rags-to-riches story, but turning physical pain into wellness, healing my heart from devastation, and hopefully completing my 3rd book. The world feels heavy today, but day by day I will find a way to gain leverage to make my burden not just tolerable, but joyful. Then find a way to share it with others.

  11. My vision is to grow the popular image of yoga to one of healing and self-empowerment rather than either poses or out of reach practices. In 2018 I will duplicate my in person reach in my online space and create a foundation to become the go to expert on personalized yoga practice for healing.

  12. I’m going to start on the road of increasing earnings from my writing, and investigate whether or not it’s feasible to eventually give up the day job.
